Nevada Las Vegas
Year four of the Mike Sanford experiment begins at Nevada Las Vegas and if it's anything like the first three, Sanford could be out of a job. He has three consecutive two-win seasons and outside of an outburst after a Sept. 9, 2006 game at Iowa State (YouTube video here), nothing of note has happened with his program. Ron Kantowski of the Las Vegas Sun says the Rebels' problems begin with Sam Boyd Stadium, which seats only 36,800. He writes, "if you don’t have a stadium that seats 50,000, chances are pretty good that football on your campus is only a diversion until basketball practice begins." Thanks to Paul.
