SBN Longform takes a look at the Pistol Offense

+

This article takes a look at the pistol offense's foray into the NFL, breaking down some of the more technical aspects of the offense. Can the offense stick in the NFL? Perhaps only time will tell.

Nevada versus Texas State will be an old west showdown with both packing the Pistol

+

(ed note: I'm mostly posting this to pop my United(tm) cherry) On Saturday Nevada will host a team whose offense will look pretty familiar. Texas State runs the pistol as their primary offense, and have found some success with it. Should be an interesting look at how the Wolf Pack handles some of their own medicine.

Stefphon Jefferson sets a new Nevada school record with 7 TDs

+

Nevada's Stefphon Jefferson had a career game versus the Hawaii Warriors Saturday, rushing for 6 touchdowns and catching another to set a new Nevada school record with 7 total TDs in a game. Jefferson also moved himself to the top of the leaderboards and became the nation's leading rusher (699 total yards on the year). Congrats Stefphon, and keep on runnin' young fella!

Former SDSU Aztec Stephen Strasburg shut down for rest of season

2

I hate to interrupt all the footballing going on around here, but former SDSU star Stephen Strasburg has created quite the buzz recently. Strasburg has put in a phenomenal 2012 campaign after coming back for his first full season since elbow surgery. However, the Nationals placed an innings limit on him and have shut him down for the rest of the year. This has created quite the debate; how do you shut down arguably your best pitcher in the middle of a pennant race? Personally I'd let him pitch, be that as a starter or a reliever I don't care. Shutting him down completely just seems disingenuous to the game and a stress on him and his teammates. Any around here with any opinions on this?

Nevada AD Cary Groth to retire at end of academic year

2

I just can't quit you MW Connection. It was announced today that Cary Groth has decided to retire at the end of the academic year (which means next summer essentially). Groth's tenure has been a bit of a fire rod for some Nevada fans, but this gives the university ample time to come up with a suitable replacement.

A win for Utah State!

I just wanted to extend a hearty welcome to all the great citizens of Logan -- and I do mean all! With 2084 unique votes and counting, Utah State is this website's favorite team as voted on via our official balloting process. Congrats Loganites, we're so glad to have you all aboard!

Nevada Notes: Brandon Wimberly to attempt comeback in '12-'13

Best home field/court advantages in the MWC

+

An interesting take on some of the tougher venues to play at in the MWC, including sports other than football/basketball. It's written from a Nevada-based perspective, but still well worth a look.

Trent Johnson, the former Nevada head coach who was at the helm for their '04 sweet 16 run, has been hired to take over as head coach for the TCU Horned Frogs (of former MWC decent). Johnson was most recently the head coach at LSU.

The Nevada Wolf Pack had a couple individual awards handed down to them today with sophomore Deonte Burton taking home POY honors and head coach David Carter taking home COY honors. Wolf Pack senior Olek Czyz joined Burton with a selection to the All-WAC first team. Senior Dario Hunt was selected to the All-WAC second team, and along with sophomore Jerry Evans was selected to the All-WAC defensive team.

Nevada Clinches At Least a Share of the WAC Crown After a 3OT Win Over Fresno State

5

After pulling out a triple overtime victory over Fresno State on Saturday night, the Nevada Wolf Pack clinched at least a share of the WAC regular season crown. There's a chance Fresno could get a chance at redemption once the WAC tournament begins, or they may have to wait until next season in MWC play. Also, I may or may not have posted this simply to rub it in ROFLCOPTER16's face.

Nevada Hires Former Colorado State Associate Head Coach Larry Lewis to Round Out Coaching Staff

+

As a follow up on my post the other day, Nevada has hired Larry Lewis to fill its last vacant position on their new-look coaching staff. Lewis spent 2011 as an associate head coach for the Colorado State Rams, so he should bring some knowledge of the MWC with him to the Pack. Lewis will serve as the running backs coach and special teams coordinator.

Nevada mascot Wolfie Jr. wins Capital One Bowl mascot of the year

A win for the little man I guess. The win comes with a $20,000 scholarship for the mascot program at Nevada (which I guess can't hurt for a program with some financial difficulties).

Recruiting for mid-major programs very different today than in the past

1

Interesting article on how recruiting has changed over the years for Nevada, though much of it applies to all college programs. With the advent of the internet and the popularity of sites such as Rivals.com, keeping recruiting a secret has become nearly impossible and has made verbal agreements mean far less than they used to. Well worth a look as it is an excellent read.
