too good to be true

On the cusp of UNLV making it to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 7 years, many of us who have followed the program for a while are weary. We don’t want to get too excited because we have been burned so many times before. We have seen national championships tainted by recruiting controversies, and watched as we saw the greatest recruiting class of any college in the mid-nineties (Caron Butler, Lamar Odom, Shawn Marion) be dismantled becuase of violations. This is the Rebels best team in 16 years, and we all keep waiting for the bottom to drop out. Watching the team with one eye closed, hoping that by all means, we can avoid controversy.


Controversy has once again befallen the UNLV basketball program. Like the article says, I can’t wait to see Billy Packer try to explain to the kids at home why Joe Darger has two mommies.
