    What are the odds?

    Maybe odds is the wrong word, IDK.

    Geoff Grammer ‏@GeoffGrammer 18h18 hours ago On Jan. 10, 2016, UNLV fired Dave Rice after a 3-game losing streak. #mwbb

    1 in 1. This actually happened (Excuse my wise (pies?) A$$ness) .


    Whether or not it happens here, my guess is that there's a 95% chance that Coach Neal makes it to the end of this season.

    I meant the date. 1 year ago yesterday UNLV fires Rice. It just seems weird considering the dates.

    Nice to see Rice on the UNR bench the other night. Seems to be a much more comfortable role (and one he is probably good at!) for him as an Ast. Coach. I'm sure he enjoyed the show, too, unfortunately.

    I never see the point in firing a coach mid-season. Case in point, UNLV last year. How did that fiasco work for them?

    Gives you a head start on finding a coach before there are a lot of other openings to compete with. Locksley got fired midseason (even if it was two years too late) and his replacement seems to be working out quite well!

    Krebs fired McKay in season, although pretty late in the season. Also fired Locksley in season. Pretty much had to in that case.

    He's probably very averse to doing it, but he's not completely against it as the past has shown. Krebs also has selection committee duties beginning in March. That could affect the schedule of when certain things happen.
