I am as giddy as a school girl right now!!

Wow Jesus really does love me!

Not only did I finish my second year of seminary this last week, and complete my second year of Greek but now UNLV has picked up one of the biggest recruits the program has had since Shawn Marion. Of course Beas Hamga could turn out to be a loafing turd like some other big men we have had, but I believe he will be different. He is an athletic seven footer who has incredible natural ability and can blossom into a truly dominant big man.

This is also a major announcement because having Hamga sign with UNLV, was a major sign they can compete with the big boys like Kentucky and Florida, who they beat out for Hamga. As everyone in Las Vegas was going crazy for UNLV’s amazing run in the NCAA tourney a little over a month ago, Matt and I both were giddy about what kind of fruit it could produce for the program. Well ladies and gentlemen here is the fruit and man does it look amazing!!


And if that photo is not enough to get you overly opptimistic and excited about next season here is UNLV’s recruiting class which is considered top 20 in the nation.

    —my co-workers thinking I’m crazy—

    note: did Greg Oden start a trend with the broken hand for big men?

    side note: the Oden/cast comparison actually got me more excited. I have problems.

  2. I do not want to keep going with this whole recruiting thing, but I have to say that seeing Bob Gibbons rate UNLV as the 12th ranked recruiting class is amazing. This was almost as exciting as seeing us finish 14th in the season ending poll. Go Rebs!!
