STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Power Behind The Program

MIKE GERBER

Strength & Conditioning Coach

UNLV football’s strength and conditioning program is now under the guidance of veteran coach Mike Gerber. “The goal of the UNLV football strength & conditioning program is to maximize those physical traits that excellence in the sport demands,” Gerber said. “Football is a game of relatively short but extremely intense efforts requiring great power production. Because of this, the core of the program is made up of the Olympic Weightlifting movements. Run speed development and conditioning also follow the dictates of the game’s physical demands. Emphasis is placed especially on initial acceleration because most sprinting in football is relatively short. Conditioning is made up largely of position-specific movement patterns done in series of all-out effort with the quantity of work similar to a long football drive.” The Ernie Becker Sr. Strength and Conditioning Center’s 8,500square-foot deck features free weights, power racks and Olympian platforms. The 1,200-square-foot second level offers stretching and aerobic areas catered to each sport. The room also features a premium sound system to further enhance the workout experience.

More than 60 weight stations cover the state-of-the-art flooring inside the Ernie Becker Sr. Strength & Conditioning Center.

EQUIPMENT

Rebels Wear Only The Best UNLV’S All-New Bill Ireland Locker Room

114 custom-made player lockers fill the Bill Ireland Locker Room inside the Lied Athletic Complex.

PAUL PUCCIARELLI Director

Now in his 27th year overseeing the equipment department for UNLV, Paul Pucciarelli says he and the school are committed to outfitting players to be both safe and stylish on the football field. “My philosophy behind equipment is that student-athletes have enough problems, that is, they have to compete in the classroom and on the field — worrying about equipment shouldn’t be a problem,” says Pucciarelli, widely known as Pooch. “Our players are lucky because of the system we have set up here. The athletic department and the university provide us a tremendous support group.” The Lied Athletic Complex’s 10,000-square-foot, two-sided equipment room gives all 17 UNLV sports the services of an immense facility designed with the student-athlete in mind. In one of 19 team and staff locker rooms, players and coaches can simply drop off their uniforms at the end of a practice or competition. The next day a clean version will be waiting for pickup in personally assigned lockers located in a wall surrounding the equipment room.

SPORTS MEDICINE

The Finest Care The Marilyn & Si Redd Sports Medicine Complex sprawls over an 8,500square-foot area.

KYLE WILSON Director

Providing the best possible preventative and rehabilitative care, the UNLV football athletic training staff is headed by Director of Athletic Training Kyle Wilson. Made possible by a generous gift of $1.5 million from Marilyn and Si Redd, the Lied Athletic Complex’s athletic training facility incorporates the total scope of sports medicine over an 8,500-square-foot area. Aside from five staff offices, a rehabilitation room houses a dozen pieces of equipment including Cybex stationary bicycles, stair machines and treadmills, all under a natural skylight. The largest area features a dozen tables to offer student-athletes various treatments throughout the day. Taping, padding and bracing all take place in another all-inclusive room. Finally, an aquatic therapy room features three above-ground whirlpools surrounding a 10-feet deep pool for rehabilitative exercises.

O

ne of college football’s largest and most impressive areas of its kind, Bill “Wildcat” Morris Rebel Park has been transformed into an athletic showcase over the past decade. In 2010, a state-of-the-art UBU synthetic surface was installed at a cost of $700,000. The artificial surface was originally installed in 2002 thanks to a $1 million gift from the family of Ernie Becker Sr. A completely new lighting system soon followed. Also, Bruce Bayne of Peccole Nevada and Ernie Becker Jr. helped develop an all-new grand entrance to the park, complete with pine trees, desert rocks and an archway. The palm-tree-lined area includes two full-sized practice fields. Also, Terry Manley of Champion Homes is responsible for the UNLV Football Manley Corner, which welcomes visitors, staff and student-athletes onto campus and into the heart of Rebel Football.

A

dozen UNLV football players were named to the 2010 Academic AllMountain West team, which highlighted another strong year in the classroom by the Rebels. Marking the 12th consecutive season that at least seven UNLV players appeared on the academic team, the total number of honorees was the fourth-most ever recorded by the program (the high mark is 20 set in 2008.) In fact, academic advising for football, which boasts multiple full-time advisors, has helped produce 140 such honorees since the school joined the Mountain West in 1999. One player – OL Matt Murphy – ended his college career as a rare four-time conference academic honoree while two other veterans – WR Tate Knutson and LB Beau Orth – picked up their third such honor. In addition, six Rebel gridders earned spots on the UNLV Dean’s List during 2010-11. In 2009, the program placed a player on the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team for unprecedented third consecutive season. Flair

IN THE COMMUNITY

U

Rebels For A Cause

NLV and its student-athletes are committed to success both on and off the fields of play. Rebel players have the opportunity to become more involved members of the Southern Nevada community. Through interaction with charitable organizations, local schools, hospitals and various youth events, the Rebels have become increasingly positive role models. Each year, the athletics department’s effort in Nevada Reading Week translates into dozens of area schools being visited by nearly a 100 athletes, coaches and staff. Other programs the Rebels have recently taken part in include holiday food drives, Child Haven’s holiday party, Communities in Schools, the Santa Clothes program, KLUC Toy Drive, Opportunity Village’s Santa Run and Joy Prom.

UNLV BOASTS FOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE ALL-AMERICANS SINCE 2002 UNLV wide receiver Casey Flair was one of only 11 players in the nation named to the 2007 American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division I-A Good Works Team. The Alaska native became the fourth Rebel in six years selected to the prestigious collection of student-athletes that has been honored for its performance off the field since 1991. Former UNLV lineman Tony Terrell (Lawndale, CA) was the program’s first-ever honoree in 2002 and two-time All-American safety Jamaal Brimmer (Las Vegas) earned the nod in 2004. Las Vegas native Leon Moore was honored in 2005. Nominated by their school’s sports information directors and voted on by an AFCA committee, successful candidates must be heavily involved in working for charity and/or service to their community.

UNLV PRO DAY

The UNLV Pro Day takes place on campus each spring. For the 2010 edition, no less than 19 scouts from 16 different NFL teams were on hand. Taking part in all or some of the timed or measured events were a dozen Rebels who just completed their college careers and five of those players earned a spot in an NFL camp. This followed three UNLV 2009 seniors (wide receiver Ryan Wolfe, offensive lineman Joe Hawley and linebacker Jason Beauchamp) being invited to participate in the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Also radio voice of the Runnin’ Rebel men’s basketball program since 2004, he is an honors graduate of Stanford University and the University of Virginia School of Law. Sandler practiced corporate law in Palo Alto, Calif., before becoming the play-by-play voice of the Salinas Spurs baseball team in the California League. He was hired as the play-by-play broadcaster for the Triple-A Las Vegas Stars prior to the 1993 season.

Radio Game Analyst

Las Vegas native and former NFL star Mike Pritchard joined the UNLV broadcast team in 2006 as radio analyst for Rebel football. After a stellar career as a running back at Las Vegas’ Rancho High School, Pritchard went on to the University of Colorado (1987-90) where he would become the second-leading receiver in school history with 1,241 yards.

NATIONAL EXPOSURE

Since 2000, UNLV football has made appearances on CBS SN, VERSUS, The Mtn., ABC, TBS, Fox Sports West & Fox Sports Arizona, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN+Plus, ESPN3, Big East Network and SportsWest. A new era began in the fall of 2006 as what is now known as the CBS Sports Network became the official television partner for the Mountain West, which forged a potential 14-year agreement that gave the fastest-growing independent cable network exclusive rights to football and men’s basketball, plus coverage for all other league sports. The multi-media partnership also includes The Mtn., the firstever sports network dedicated solely to an intercollegiate athletic conference.

UNLV, which has had 109 games televised in Las Vegas since 1999, opened on national television for five straight seasons in 2001-05.

MOUNTAIN WEST THIS IS THE MOUNTAIN WEST

The Mountain West was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions — Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming — decided to form a new NCAA Division FBS intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from a former 16-team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, long-standing athletic rivalries. Three of the MW’s eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MW in 1999. TCU re-joined the group with its first year of competition in the Mountain West in 2005-06. Effective July 1, 2011, Boise State became the newest member. Fresno State and Nevada, Reno will join the Mountain West effective July 1, 2012. Also on July 1, 2012, Hawai‘i will become a football-only member of the conference. From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. The Colorado Springs-based league is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within Mountain West boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders three MW institutions (Air Force, newest member Boise State and Colorado State). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert city of Las Vegas (the fastest growing metropolitan area in the West) and the Pacific Ocean locale of San Diego State. The southwestern flavor of New Mexico complements the western heritage and culture of Fort Worth, Texas, home of TCU. Mountain West members have participated in 46 bowl games under the league umbrella, including four appearances in BCS games. The MW has earned 55 postseason bids in men’s basketball, including 29 NCAA Tournament appearances and two NIT Final Four berths. MW women’s basketball has tallied 55 postseason slots, including 30 NCAA bids, five Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight berth since 2000. The MW has produced 708 All-America selections among its 19 sponsored sports in the last 12 years, including a league-record 80 All-America honorees in 2010-11.

MW 2010 FOOTBALL YEAR IN REVIEW

For the third consecutive year, the MW sent a record five football teams to bowl games, posting the best win percentage among the 11 FBS conferences for the fourth time in seven years. The Mountain West finished with a 4-1 (.800) mark in postseason play and claimed the 2010-11 Bowl Challenge Cup, becoming the only conference to win the trophy four times since the award’s inception in 2002-03. Two MW teams were ranked in the final BCS Standings and USA Today/ESPN Coaches polls for the third straight year. TCU’s No. 3 BCS ranking marked the highest finish by a nonautomatic-qualifying team in the final BCS Standings, surpassing the Horned Frogs’ No. 4 ranking in 2009. The Horned Frogs’ automatic bid to the Rose Bowl marked the MW’s fourth BCS bowl game since 2004. The Moountain West set a record for attendance with 1.86 million fans coming to football games in the 2010 season. With San Diego State’s Stephen Strasburg becoming the top pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Mountain West is one of only two conferences to have the No. 1 selection in each of the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts since the league’s founding in 1999.

Craig Thompson was the Mountain West’s first employee when he was named Commissioner on Oct. 15, 1998. Ever since, Thompson has navigated the newest NCAA Division I conference through the ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics. As the league enters its 13th season of competition in 2011-12, Thompson continues to create and improve the opportunities for Mountain West institutions and student-athletes to be successful both academically and athletically. Since the Mountain West opened its doors on January 4, 1999, Thompson has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW has flourished under the guidance of Commissioner Thompson and continues to cultivate opportunities for studentathletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. Thompson also has positioned the Mountain West for the future with the additions of Boise State University on July 1, 2011, and California State University, Fresno and the University of Nevada, Reno on July 1, 2012. The University of Hawai`i will join the league as a football-only member beginning July 1, 2012. His leadership and vision have helped the conference enhance its television revenue and exposure through revolutionary agreements with CBS Sports Network and Comcast to become the first major collegiate athletic conference to launch a dedicated sports channel featuring exclusive programming around its athletic programs. Thompson has been instrumental in strengthening the position of the Mountain West in the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS) structure. In 2006, he spearheaded an effort that resulted in better access for the MW and more than doubled the annual BCS revenue on an annual basis for non-automatic-qualifying conferences. The MW has been steadfast in its efforts to find a way to make the BCS system fair for all universities. Through its first 12 years of competition, the Mountain West has participated in 46 bowl games. The MW claimed the 2010 Bowl Challenge Cup after sending five teams into postseason action and finishing with a 4-1 (.800) mark. It was the fourth time in seven years the MW posted the best win percentage among the 11 FBS conferences. Prior to his current role, Thompson served as the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference for nearly eight years and as the only commissioner of the American South Conference before a merger of the two leagues in 1991. Thompson graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in journalism. He and his wife, Carla, have a son (Ted) and a daughter (Emma).

BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

The games participating in the Bowl Championship Series are the Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl. In addition, the BCS National Championship Game will be played at one of the bowl sites. The sixth title game under the new format will be played Jan. 9, 2012, at the Superdome in New Orleans. The Sugar Bowl will be played in the same stadium six days earlier. Any Bowl Subdivison team is eligible for at-large consideration. Automatic BCS qualifiers are: No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the final BCS standings; champions of the Big East, Big Ten, SEC, Pac-10, Big 12 and ACC; Notre Dame (if it finishes in the top eight) and a non-automatic qualifying BCS team that finishes in the top 14, or in the top 16 if it is ahead of a BCS champion. The Mountain West is 3-1 in BCS games after last year’s Rose Bowl victory by TCU over Wisconsin. 2012 BCS SCHEDULE January 2 – Rose Bowl January 3 – Sugar Bowl January 4 – Orange Bowl January 5 – Fiesta Bowl January 9 – BCS National Championship Game The Mountain West will look to participate in a BCS game for the fourth consecutive season in 2011.

MOUNTAIN WEST BEST IN THE BOWLS (AGAIN)

For the second straight season and fourth time in seven years, the Mountain West in 2010-11 posted the best win percentage among the 11 conferences that make up the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision. The Mountain West claimed the Bowl Challenge Cup after sending five teams into postseason action and finishing with a 4-1 (.800) mark. The Bowl Challenge Cup was created by ESPN in 2002 as a competition among the conferences in the FBS during the college bowl season. In order to win the trophy, a conference must have the highest win percentage with a minimum of three teams participating in the postseason. The Mountain West earned its first Bowl Challenge Cup after registering a 2-1 record in bowl competition during the 2004-05 season. The MWC, which also won the Cup in 2007-08 and in 2009-10 with identical 4-1 marks, is the only conference to win the trophy in consecutive postseasons. It is also the only league to capture the trophy more than twice since the award’s inception. Since the league formed in 1999, the MW has earned 46 bowl bids and holds a 29-17 all-time record in those games, including an 11-3 mark against BCS automatic-qualifying conferences since 2004. The MW holds an overall record of 13-7 against opponents from BCS AQ leagues in bowl games, including wins over the Pac-10 (six), SEC (two), ACC (two), Big Ten (one), Big 12 (one) and Big East (one). Over the past seven seasons (including 2010), the MWC owns the best win percentage in bowl games among the 11 conferences with a 22-9 mark (.710).

SAM BOYD STADIUM

S

tanding as one of the top college football facilities in all the West is UNLV’s versatile venue Sam Boyd Stadium. Undergoing a complete facelift and renovation during 1999, Sam Boyd expanded to its present capacity of 36,800 (with the ability to seat more than 40,000 when called for). Located in Las Vegags approximately seven miles from both the UNLV campus and McCarran International Airport, Sam Boyd Stadium successfully combines the excitement of a college football stadium and the versatility of an entertainment arena. The Rebel football team has posted a 135-106-3 record in 39-plus seasons playing there, including in front of a record three sellout crowds in 2007. SBS marked its 25th anniversary in 1996 by hosting the state’s thenlargest-ever sporting crowd on Sept. 14 when 41,091 fans witnessed UNLV take on Wisconsin. That total was surpassed just three months later when 41,238 saw BYU get past Wyoming in the first WAC Championship game. That record was re-written once more when 42,075 fans saw the Badgers return to face the Rebels on Aug. 31, 2002. The 2006 Las Vegas Bowl ultimately upped the record to 44,615 in a game between BYU and Oregon. The stadium has hosted some of the greatest talents in sports and show business. Future NFL quarterbacks Randall Cunningham, Jim McMahon, Drew Bledsoe, Carson Palmer, Andre Ware, Alex Smith, John Beck and Andy Dalton are among those who have played at Sam Boyd Stadium along with events involving athletes such as soccer legend Pele and motor sports stars. Additionally, the stadium has hosted world-class concerts by such musical acts as the Dave Matthews Band, the Eagles, U2, Paul McCartney, Wayne Newton, and the once-annual summer appearances by the Grateful Dead. A mecca for football played on all levels, the stadium is currently site of the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas each December, including six consecutive sold-out crowds, after serving as home to three Western Athletic Conference championship games from 1996-98. The facility has served as

24

host to professional football three times, including currently housing the two-time United Football League champion Las Vegas Locomotives, who debuted in 2009. The Las Vegas Outlaws of the XFL made it their home in 2001; and the Las Vegas Posse, a Canadian Football League franchise, played one season in 1994. SBS also hosts high school games and has been site of the state’s prep championship. The venue also hosted two other college football events: the Silver Dollar Classic, which featured teams from historically black universities, and the Las Vegas All-American Classic all-star game from 2003-05. Originally named Las Vegas Stadium when it was built in 1971 at a cost of $3.5 million, the facility was re-named the Las Vegas Silver Bowl in 1978 and then known as the Sam Boyd Silver Bowl in honor of local gaming pioneer Sam Boyd beginning in 1984. Its name was officially shortened to Sam Boyd Stadium in April 1994. The first event held in the then15,000-seat stadium was a UNLV football game against Weber State on Oct. 23, 1971, won by the visiting Wildcats, 30-17. Official dedication ceremonies, however, took place the next season on Sept. 9, 1972, at halftime of a 35-28 loss to Western Illinois before 8,800 fans. SBS, which has always retained its horseshoe shape, underwent an expansion to 32,000 seats in 1978 and again enjoyed improvements in 1994. The Rebel Experience area outside the stadium opened in 1997. One of the highlights of the most recent renovation was the replacement of the so-called “Magic Carpet” retractable artificial turf that had been in place since 1985. Originally fitted with traditional AstroTurf, Sam Boyd was the first stadium in the world to install a Monsanto Corp. outdoor retractable turf, which helped give the facility its multi-purpose capability. The surface, which simply rolled up into cylinders in less than an hour, was installed at a cost of $1.2 million in part through a grant by the Sam Boyd family. Natural grass replaced the artificial turf from 1999-2002 before a synthetic surface, made by TurfTech, was installed in time for the 2003 season.

REBEL GAMEDAY

UNLV CHEERLEADERS & DANCE TEAM

Two of the nation’s best-known spirit squads, the UNLV Cheerleaders and the UNLV Dance Team (Rebel Girls) are fixtures at all Rebel football games. The teams perform at various UNLV athletic events and volunteer their time to appear at various events throughout the Las Vegas community. The Cheer & Dance Teams also devote time to instructing the UNLV Rebel Starzz – a group of young dancers ages 3-16 that performs at games each fall.

THE REBEL EXPERIENCE

Premiering at Sam Boyd Stadium in 1997 was the Rebel Experience. Situated in the northwest parking lot, the 64,000-square-foot-area is predominantly grass and includes six 30x60foot cement pads that can be reserved for large gatherings and corporate outings. UNLV FIGHT SONG

“WIN WITH THE REBELS” Win with the Rebels a victory today! Win with the Rebels, the Scarlet and Gray. From mountains that surround you to far across the sea. We’ll win with the Rebels of UNLV. U-N-L-V UNLV Go, Fight, Win. We’ll win with the Rebels of UNLV.

THE STAR OF NEVADA MARCHING BAND

Numbering more than 100 strong, the Star of Nevada Marching Band, which began in its present form in 1978, is a big part of Rebel Football Gameday. Whether it’s pumping up the crowds at the Rebel Experience or entertaining fans at halftime, home Saturdays at Sam Boyd Stadium would not be the same without strains of “Win with the Rebels” peppering the autumn air. Directed by Tony LaBounty, the UNLV band is announced by Dr. Harvey Allen who in 2011 goes into his 33rd season as the voice of the Star of Nevada Marching Band. UNLV ALMA MATER

Alma Mater, we praise you For spirit, the eternal flame, Strength which never falters, A tribute to your name Alma Mater, we thank you, Exalted Scarlet and Gray. Truth and wisdom from your standard In our minds and hearts will stay Alma Mater, we cherish you. And in our days that are yet to be, Our voices let us ever raise In honor, U-N-L-V.


REBEL GAMEDAY VOICE OF THE REBELS DICK CALVERT

THE FREMONT CANNON Trophy Helps Illustrate Importance of State Rivalry

Not simply a traveling trophy for the winner of the UNLV vs. Nevada, Reno game, the Fremont Cannon is ever-present at the now-annual Battle for Nevada. The tradition of awarding the cannon to the victors started four decades ago when the Rebels’ first football coach, Bill Ireland, felt the young rivalry between the north and south schools could use a symbolic trophy to stimulate interest. The prize turned out to be a replica of the howitzer used by John C. Fremont, one of America’s foremost trailblazers, as he headed west into Nevada in 1843. Legend has it that Fremont violated U.S. War Department rules by taking the cannon with him on his westward trek without permission and then abandoned the weapon in a SierraNevada snowdrift. Built by the Kennecott Copper Corp., Nevada Mines Division, the cannon was originally valued at more than $10,000 and is considered one of the best, and loudest, symbols of rivalry in college football. The Fremont is one of only two cannon prizes in all rivalry games, along with Illinois vs. Purdue. The Wolf Pack held the cannon first because they had beaten the Rebels 30-28 in the initial game of the series on Thanksgiving Day 1969. UNLV promptly won rights to the big gun in 1970 with a 42-30 home win and went on to dominate the series with eight wins in the next 11 games played. After UNR rebounded to win five straight games (1989-1993), UNLV regained the cannon in its Silver Anniversary Year in 1994. Last year’s UNR win put the Wolf Pack ahead 21-15 in the series, which has been continuous since 1987. The teams will meet in Reno on Oct. 8, 2011, to again decide who gets to keep the fabled cannon.

A familiar sound to UNLV fans of all ages, Dick Calvert, the “Voice of the Rebels,” is in his fifth decade as the game announcer for UNLV Athletics. Calvert, who calls UNLV football, basketball, men’s & women’s soccer, baseball games and other events at Sam Boyd Stadium, Thomas & Mack Center, Cox Pavilion, Peter Johann Memorial Field, and Earl E. Wilson Stadium, has also served as the game announcer of the MWC basketball tournament, the Las Vegas Bowl and the NBA Vegas Summer League. Additionally, the longtime university staffer, works many MWC Championships hosted by UNLV and is the official starter for a number of university and NCAA golf tournaments. Calvert annually works over 100 local events. He was inducted into the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame in June 2010. The former play-by-play broadcaster is also one of the most experienced commentators of American professional soccer, having served 18 seasons in both the North American and Major Soccer leagues. The Las Vegas resident retired from broadcasting and the UNLV Athletics Department after serving as the director of broadcasting, director of athletic marketing for Olympic sports and director of athletic facilities/operations. Calvert and his wife Anne have four adult children and are the proud grandparents of 10.

HEY REB

Embodying the Rebel spirit of the University he promotes, UNLV’s Hey Reb made his debut in 1983 and received a makeover in 1997. Named one of 12 All-American Mascots, he competed for the title of 2004 Capital One Mascot of the Year and made a strong showing by coming in second in online voting. No stranger to national television, however, Hey Reb also appeared in two memorable ESPN SportsCenter commercials.

REBEL HISTORY

O

pened as a satellite campus in 1957, the southern regional division of the University of Nevada became Nevada Southern University in 1965 and finally evolved into University of Nevada, Las Vegas four years later when the Board of Regents granted it autonomy under the state’s higher education system. Men’s basketball was the first sport organized at UNLV, opening play in 1958 under head coach and athletic director Michael “Chub” Drakulich. Baseball, also coached by Drakulich, started in 1960 and football came to campus nearly a decade later when head coach Bill Ireland’s squad went 8-1 in 1968. Women’s club sports such as tennis emerged in 1960 under administrator Alice Mason but basketball became the first women’s varsity sport in 1974. UNLV currently sponsors seven men’s and 10 women’s athletic programs.

NICKNAME

The nickname “Rebels” was given to UNLV athletic teams because the school, emerging from the shadow of the University of Nevada, Reno, in effect “rebelled” against its bigger and older brother to the north. The name “Runnin’ Rebels” (always spelled without a ‘g’) was coined in 1974 by then-sports information director Dominic Clark but refers only to the UNLV men’s basketball team.

COLORS

The school colors of Scarlet and Gray can be traced to the late1950s when UNLV adopted as mascot a wolf wearing a Confederate uniform. Scarlet and Gray were traditional colors of the Confederacy with its gray uniforms and red-based flag.

MASCOT

Today it’s Hey Reb but some at UNLV still remember the first official Rebel mascot — Beauregard. Dressed in a gray military field jacket and Confederate cap, Beau is a fanged, winking, black and white cartoon wolf. He came to be because the new school in Southern Nevada wanted to take a little jab at the Wolf Pack mascot of Nevada, Reno. “UNLV was rebelling against the status quo and the two schools’ mascots seemed to mimic the Civil War,” said former UNLV president, the late, Don Baepler, who later directed the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural

History on campus. “Reno had a northern looking wolf so we wanted a Confederate wolf.” The logo lasted until the early 1970s when a group of black athletes came to Baepler, who was academic vice president at the time, and voiced its displeasure with having a mascot that had a connection with the wrong side of the Civil War. “They said it didn’t feel right playing for a school with such a mascot...and I agreed,” said Baepler. “Southern Nevada has no real ties to the Confederacy so the change wasn’t a big concern.” The student senate voted on a new mascot and the human Rebel logo was born. Initially, a Colonial-like Rebel soldier was the official logo and there was talk at one time of changing UNLV’s nickname to Minutemen. Essentially there was no recognized UNLV mascot for about a half-decade spilling into the early 1980s. Enter Mike Miller, the award-winning local graphic artist who eventually became the creator of the cartoon man with a long moustache known as Hey Reb. Miller said his inspiration for the logo was historical Nevada frontiersmen from the 1800s such as John C. Fremont and Kit Carson. “The character is supposed to be a trailblazer of the old West,” said Miller. “I just sketched out a little mountain man with a long coat that had some fringe on it.” Despite the new Rebel eventually being displayed as having striking white hair on his head and face, Miller said Hey Reb was never supposed to be an old man and put his intended age at around 30 years old. As for the unusual name of the new character, there was no campus contest or high-priced marketing focus group involved. “I just wrote Hey Reb on the back of his coat on one of the many variations I gave them,” he said. “I was hoping it would be a good slogan – a yell-out cheer at games – but it never really caught on.” The mascot, however, did catch on in a big way as UNLV vaulted to the top in college apparel licensing within the decade. In 1997, a more muscular version of Hey Reb, minus a musket, was introduced and a refreshed version was developed in 2006. Beauregard may not be prevalent in today’s UNLV athletic events, but he’s certainly not gone and forgotten. The original sketch of the wolf was converted into a mid-court painting for basketball games played in the old University gymnasium. Today, visitors can visit the black, white, scarlet and gray logo circle in its original position at what is now the Barrick Museum, which still uses the existing oak hardwood basketball floor to hold its exhibits.

THE BELL BOYS

UNLV Football has been a real family affair for Joanne Wilson of Tustin, CA, who sent all three of her sons to play for the Rebels over the past decade. The eldest, linebacker Zach Bell, played for John Robinson from 2001-04 and as a senior lined up on the same defense as fellow-LB Beau Bell, who would go on to a Mountain West Defensive MVP campaign in 2007 before becoming a fourth-round NFL Draft pick by the Cleveland Browns. Little brother, B.J. Bell, went to Santa Ana College out of high school but the 2008 J.C. Gridwire First Team All-American also joined the Rebels in Fall 2009 to play defensive end and ring up another Bell in the Scarlet & Gray. After earning a medical redshirt and then starting all 13 games last season, B.J. will be a senior in 2011.

ON SCHEDULE

A jaw-dropping total of four teams on UNLV’s 2011 schedule finished in the top 11of the final AP poll last season (No. 2 TCU, No. 7 Wisconsin, No. 9 Boise State and No. 11 Nevada, Reno), plus another three that received votes. That means the Rebels, who only host one of those four, could be on their way to earning the unenviable distinction of in back-to-back years playing the most difficult schedule among all schools from Non-Automatic Qualifying conferences. Overall, the 11 FBS teams on the docket this fall combined for a 2010 winning percentage of .610, seven played in bowl games and five reached doubles digits in victories. Nothing new for Bobby Hauck’s Rebels, however, as in 2010 UNLV faced not only one of the toughest schedules in all of college football but the 13-game slate ranked No. 3 for difficulty for any Non-Auto program since the advent of the BCS in 1998. The Rebels’ gauntlet finished 19th in the Sagarin Ratings Index, which was 26 spots higher than the next-toughest schedule for a Non-AQ league member (Colorado State at 45). In comparison, the highest Non-AQ schedule in 2009 was ranked 55 (UNM). Research shows that the only two Non-AQ teams to face a tougher schedule were the BYU squads of 2003 (14th-toughest schedule) and 2004 (11th toughest). UNLV’s previous highest schedule strength ranking was 42 in 1998, which also led all Non-AQ schools that season.

BATTLE BORN

Head Coach Bobby Hauck began a new tradition at UNLV in 2010 with the introduction of the “Battle Born Jersey No. 36.” In 1864, Nevada became the 36th state to enter the union, and its official slogan, which appears on the flag, is “Battle Born,” reflecting the state’s entry on the Union side during the American Civil War. Rebel Football Jersey No. 36 -- complete with a patch of the state flag on the back, will be worn by a Nevadan who best exemplifies the Battle Born spirit of his state and the toughness and pride of Rebel Football. The inaugural recipient was senior linebacker Ronnie Paulo. In 2011, another senior LB from Las Vegas takes over the honored number as Nate Carter switched from his usual 55 during spring. Carter will then help choose the 2012 honoree.

REBELATIONS...

SALDI STAYS WITH REBELS

He may not be on the playing field but UNLV’s Bryce Saldi is still a part of Rebel Football during what would have been the linebacker’s senior season. Saldi continues to recover from a serious brain injury suffered during a skateboarding accident on July 3, 2009. A graduate of Texas prep powerhouse Southlake Carroll High School, he lettered for UNLV as a redshirt freshman in 2008 by playing in all 12 games, primarily on special teams. The son of former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jay Saldi was on vacation in Southern California at the time of the accident and remained hospitalized there for nearly two months. While Bryce is now at home in Texas, Saldi’s Rebel locker inside the Lied Athletic Complex on campus remains his and you can still find his No. 54 on all active rosters until after what would have been his final game this fall. Updates on Bryce are available through the Caring Bridge website at the following link: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/Brycesaldi/guestbook

With UNLV’s season-opening game at Wisconsin moving to a Thursday (Sept. 1), the Rebels will play their 13th Thursday game in history. The program boasts an 8-4 record on Thursdays (including one bowl game) and an impressive overall non-Saturday record of 14-7-1 ... Youth will be served again by UNLV this fall as the Rebels last year tied for seventh overall in the FBS with 23 true and redshirt freshmen having seen action for Bobby Hauck in 2010, including six that started at least one game. The program also tied for fifth in the country for most true freshmen getting on the field with 14. In fact, there are nearly three times as many returning lettermen sophomores (26) than juniors (nine) for the Scarlet & Gray in 2011 ... Four of those new Rebel players earned a spot on the Rivals.com Freshman All-MWC Team in 2010 -- and all of them were true freshmen: CB Sidney Hodge, DE Ian Bobak, PK Nolan Kohorst and KOR Marcus Sullivan ... Sullivan finished second in the league and ranked 17th in the nation in kickoff return average at 27.9. The Las Vegas native had the most kick returns among anyone in the NCAA FBS top 20 in average with 35 attempts and shattered the UNLV record for kickoff return yards in a game with 224 (former record was 185 by teammate Deante’ Purvis set in 2009) vs. San Diego State on Nov. 27 ... Another UNLV true freshman, RB Tim Cornett, became the first freshman to ever lead the Rebels in rushing in a season after he took over as the starter in Week Six and went on to net 546 yards on 144 carries. The big Texan finished with eight touchdowns on the year (six rushing and two receiving), which tied the UNLV freshman record for a season (WR Lenny Ware with eight in 1996) ... A school-record-tying 18 different Rebels recorded at least one reception in 2010 and only three of those 18 are not returning this fall. That means despite guaranteeing a new starting quarterback, UNLV will enjoy players accounting for 90 percent of the team’s receptions (171 out of 191), 92 percent of the yards (2,040 of the 2,222) and 94 percent of the touchdowns through the air (17 of 18) remaining on the roster ... Cornerback Will Chandler tied for the MWC lead in interceptions as a junior in 2010 with five and stood among the national FBS leaders with seven total takeaways. The California product matched what the entire Rebel defense mustered in 2009 as five different players recorded one pick each that fall ... The second year of the Hauck era brings only one new face to the coaching staff as veteran mentor Robin Ross took over as linebackers coach just before spring practice opened. He replaced Brent Guy, who left to become defensive coordinator at Tulsa.

ON TO THE UP AND UP

Eight FBS programs are located in cities with an elevation of at least 4,500 feet above sea level and the Rebels will play at six of them in the next two years, including four this season. Las Vegas is just over 2,000 feet above sea level.

econd-year UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck was quoted during spring practice as saying youth will be served (again) this season. In fact, a quick check of his team’s class breakdown confirms that 2011 will offer a Las Vegas-level buffet of freshmen and sophomores at Sam Boyd Stadium. Looking for more upperclassmen? Sorry, we’re running low. After ranking fifth in the nation last year with 14 true freshmen played (and 23 freshmen overall), UNLV will field a senior class of 13 scholarship seniors (including a grand total of ZERO along the offensive line) and just seven – that’s right, seven – returning scholarship juniors. Those stark numbers were the primary reason Hauck’s second recruiting class here jumped from one junior-college signee to eight such transfers in February. “We may be the youngest team in college football this year,” says Hauck. “I can’t imagine anyone being more youthful. We’re young across the board.” Asked about what he learned about the 2-11 campaign of last year, Hauck is blunt but hopeful. “We need to improve. We need to continue to be persistent and work hard at improving as a football team. We have a chance to be a good football team eventually. We will continue building this team the right way – recruiting primarily high school kids, becoming good fundamentally, working hard at everything we do. I know that persistence will pay off here.”

HAUCK

THE OFFENSE

with just six picks as a sophomore at Saddleback College and joined the Rebels at midyear. Hitting town this fall will be one of Hauck’s top signees to date, nice-sized Nick Sherry (6-5, 220, FR-HS) out of California’s Casa Grande High School. The highly productive thrower was ranked the No. 86 quarterback prospect in the nation by Scouts Inc. Herring exited spring ball leading Reilly and Barnhill but Hauck says there is no timetable for naming the team’s starter against Wisconsin.

Transitioning away from Mike Sanford’s former purely spread offense, the 2010 Rebels finished with an average of just 274.2 yards per game. Playing the toughest schedule in school history had a lot to do with that, of course, as UNLV had little trouble scoring more than 40 points in both of its victories last fall. With a deeper quarterback position and load of talented running backs at the staff’s disposal in year two, expect tangible progress this season. “I like the work we did this spring,” Hauck says. “We’re extremely excited about our young players at every position – from the line through the quarterbacks. With the youth on that side of the ball – the variable is time – but we have a chance to have a very productive offense.”

HAUCK SAYS: “I like the competition we have going. We are going to be youthful at the position, which can lead to some frustration at times but the talent level at the position with the addition of Sean Reilly and Nick Sherry gives us some options as well as a chance to be really deep in terms of quality. Caleb’s ahead right now but that should be expected as he has had a year in the system. We’ll give the guys a chance to compete for it in fall camp and we’ll see where it goes. The door is not closed. When we think it’s productive to name a starter, we will. “Caleb is going to continue to strive to be consistent day-in and day-out. He has a good chance to be a really solid player. Certainly he has a huge advantage having played in this system for a year. He did some good things. We tried to get him in whenever we had plays available for him last fall and we hope that will pay dividends down the road. Taylor is a young, inexperienced player. He has good athletic ability but is still learning the nuances of the position and it will be fun to watch him develop. It’s hard to tell right now with Sean because he’s only had 15 spring practices to gauge where he is. As he becomes less hesitant and more comfortable in the system, it will lead us to having a great competition in the fall. We’ll give Nick a look and then make a determination on whether it will be more productive for him to play or redshirt. You ideally want to redshirt all of your freshmen.”

QUARTERBACKS

The bad news is that UNLV has to replace the man who played more games at this position (Omar Clayton with 40) than anyone in school history. The good news is that there are four men ready to combine into perhaps one of the strongest quarterback corps in Rebel history. The only returning letterman under center is Caleb Herring (6-3, 190, SO-1L), a third-year player who got into his first eight games last season while spelling Clayton. After a redshirt year, he certainly showed flashes of what made him a highly touted recruit out of high school, throwing touchdown passes in four hostile environments (inside at Idaho, at West Virginia, at BYU and at Hawaii) en route to finishing with 365 yards and HERRING three interceptions. With just one other quarterback on the roster – promising redshirt freshman Taylor Barnhill (6-4, 220, FR-RS) – Hauck decided to sign the school’s first junior-college signal caller since 2005 in the form of Sean Reilly (6-4, 210, JR-TR). Reilly threw for 2,425 yards and 26 touchdowns

RUNNING BACKS

UNLV lost only one running back (graduating senior Channing Trotter) and brings back three that netted at least 100 yards in 2010. Leading the way is hard-nosed Texan Tim Cornett (6-0, 190, SO-1L), who took over the starting job in midseason and promptly became the first freshman in school history to lead the team in rushing yards with 546. His eight total touchdowns (six on the ground) also tied UNLV’s single-season record for a rookie. Pushing him on the depth chart is grayshirt addition Dionza Bradford (6-0, 210, FR-HS) who displayed tremendous potential during spring practice and should be in the mix for starting duties as a true freshman this fall. Another big addition to the group was one of three midyear JC signees who took part in spring ball – Eric Johnson (5-7, 170, JR-TR). One of four new Rebels out of College of the Sequoias, the scat-back is able to line up at various spots and is listed on the post-spring depth chart at a receiver spot. The old man of the group is senior speedster Deante’ Purvis (5-11, 195, SR-3L), who picked up 223 yards after converting from cornerback during the year to add some burst to the ground attack. The high-motored Bradley Randle (5-7, 195, SO-1L; 109 yards, 1 TD) is also back along with Imari Thompson (5-9, 205, SO-1L), who missed all of last year with a foot injury. High school star/bulldozer in a helmet Elijhaa Penny (6-2, 245, FR-HS) could add another dimension come autumn. The H-back position sports a couple of versatile veterans in returning starter Kyle Watkins (6-2, 245, SR-2L; 8 receptions for 110 yards, 1 TD) and recently converted receiver Aaron Reed (6-4, 220, JR-1L; 1-14). HAUCK SAYS: “We have a lot of youth at running back -- our top players are freshmen and sophomores, except for Deante’ Purvis. But the position has the potential to be a real strength for us.”

WIDE RECEIVERS

A school-record-tying 18 different Rebels hauled in at least one reception in 2010 and only three of those players are not scheduled to return this fall. That translates into 90 percent of the team’s receptions (171 out of 191), 92 percent of the yards (2,040 of the 2,222) and 94 percent of the touchdowns through the air (17 of 18) remaining on the roster. The group is led by UNLV’s top awards candidate going into the season, senior Phillip Payne (6-3, 205, SR-3L). Despite missing two games because of suspension, the Las Vegas native rallied to finish with 40 receptions for a career-best 689 yards (17.2 yard per catch) to go with five scores. Just five TD catches away from tying UNLV’s all-time record, Payne showed during spring ball that he is now flourishing and seems poised to post receiving statistics that match his considerable talents. Payne’s bookend could be fellow senior Michael Johnson (5-8, 175, SR-3L; 51-571, 5 TD). The speedster led the team in receptions as a junior but was suspended in January for academic reasons and looks to get back on the depth chart this fall. Picking up the slack during spring practice was local product Marcus Sullivan (5-9, 185, SO-1L; 6-102, 2 TD) and versatile JC signee Eric Johnson, who also lines up in the backfield. Another former Las Vegas prep star, Taylor Spencer (6-1, 190, FR-RS) is now a factor on offense after redshirting as a defensive back in 2010. PAYNE A pair of pass-catching Texans are back this season in the form of Mark Barefield (6-0, 195, SO-1L; 2-24), who earned an injury medical redshirt last fall, and nicesized sophomore Kurt Davis (6-5, 195, SO-1L; 3-37). Also picking up playing time last season were Trey Mays (5-10, 160, JR-1L; 6-82) and Irshad Stolden (5-9, 150, SO-1L; 3-19, 1 TD). HAUCK SAYS: “We’ll need some of the young players to come along. The position is wide open and we expect some new players to step forward and come through for us. That being said, Phillip Payne coming back for his senior season is a good start. He’s had a strong off-season, working hard in the weight room, working hard on his skills on the field. He’s doing a really nice job trying to improve and he deserves to have a big senior season.”

CORNETT

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN

Only one starter returns at a position where, remarkably, not a single senior returns. Yusef Rodgers (6-2, 250, JR-2L) leads the tackle spots and is listed as the starter on the right side while promising youngster Cameron Jefferson (6-6, 265, FR-RS) closed spring practice leading on the left. Shane Watterson (6-4, 290, SO-1L) and Brett Boyko (6-7, 295, FR-RS), the latter of whom missed spring recovering from shoulder surgery, are two more blockers in the conversation. The guards have more experience as Doug Zismann (6-2, 290, JR-2L) and Jason Heath (6-3, 280, JR-2L) are listed as the leaders on the left side while Sean Tesoro (6-2, 310, SO-1L) mans the right ahead of Jason Koontz (6-2, 310, JR-2L). Some immediate help is on the way as one of UNLV’s eight RODGERS JC signees is former University of Washington blocker Allen Carroll (6-4 300 JRTR), who comes over from College of the Sequoias this fall. At center, redshirt Robert Waterman (6-2, 275, FR-RS) is the leader heading into fall after veteran Andrew Mack left the program during the summer. HAUCK SAYS: “We’ve got a ways to go on the O-line. I like our potential but in order for us to have success on offense they need to realize it quickly. It will be highly competitive for playing time.”

THE DEFENSE

TIGHT ENDS

Expect plenty of newcomers vying for time here (three of 13 UNLV high school signees in 2011 were listed as tight ends) but a pair of veteran returnees gives the Rebels a solid base for the fall. Anthony Vidal (6-5, 250, SR-1L; 14-107, 1 TD) emerged as starter midway through the season while Austin Harrington (6-4, 235, SR-2L; 16-163) started the first half of the campaign and made an impression by leading all Rebels in HARRINGTON receptions in three different games. Look for impressively sized redshirt Jordan Sparkman (6-6, 220, FR-RS) to also compete for field time.

VIDAL

HAUCK SAYS: “We have a couple of veteran players and numerous young players who need to get in the mix, including a redshirt. I would expect one or two of those (new) guys to play this year.”

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN

Coaches are again hoping to pump some life into the Rebel pass rush, which produced only 12 QB sacks in 2010. There is some experience on the ends. Senior James Dunlap (6-1, 265, SR-2L) was credited by Hauck as having one of the top spring efforts on the team after totaling 38 tackles last year. Another pair of seniors, B.J. Bell (6-2, 260, SR-1L; 51 TT, 3.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks) and Matt Kravetz (6-1, 255, SR-1L) ended spring leading the way at the other end position. One of the JC midyear additions bolsters this spot as Trent Allmang-Wilder (6-6, 280, JR-TR) spent last year at College of the Desert. No one older than a sophomore is present on the two-deep for the interior linemen. Local product Alex Klorman (6-2, 260, SO-1L; 10 TT) has been a pleasant surprise after walking on and earning a scholarship; Desmond Tautofi (6-3, 300, FR-HS) is an emerging prospect who grayshirted in 2010 and went through his first spring ball; big Nate Holloway (6-3, 350, SO-1L; 15 TT) is expected to be a bigger contributor in his second season; and Tyler Gaston (6-3, 265, SO-1L; 13 TT, 3.0 TFL) was pushed into action as a true freshman and projects to have a bright future. HAUCK SAYS: “The defensive line is a concern. A year ago we were forced to play a lot of freshmen on the front, which makes it difficult to hold up as a defense. We’re hoping that those players continue to mature and improve and become a strength on our team. The three seniors need to play well this fall.”

There are plenty of holes to fill on a defense that allowed 450 yards a game last year. But there is also optimism about this group’s development as the moving parts start to come together. “On the defensive side of the ball, aside from the corner position, there isn’t a lot of experience,” says Hauck. “We need to get better, bigger, faster -- understand the game more. It’s a complete work in progress on defense but I like where we’re headed. We are short-handed in the front seven and need more numbers on that side of the ball. We have been in that predicament for a year and there is no quick fix. We need to continue to recruit defensive players. Adding productive junior college players over there should allow us to begin playing better defense. We will need to continue to improve this defense to be competitive in our league.”

LINEBACKERS

All three starting linebackers from 2010 are history and only one name on the post-spring depth chart had the word senior next to it – this year’s Battle Born Jersey No. 36 honoree Nate Carter (6-1, 235, SR-3L; 35 TT, 1 INT), who heads up the middle spot. Tani Maka (6-1, 240, SO-1L; 34 TT, 2 TFL) leads on the weakside while Tim Hasson (6-2, 195, SO-1L; 19 TT) and converted running back C.J. Cox (5-11, 205, JR-2L) are battling at the strongside position. Perry Cooper (6-3, 225, FR-RS) and William Vea (6-0, 220, FR-RS) are also in the mix. Coaches are looking for highly touted JC signee Princeton Jackson (6-0, 230, JR-TR) to make a big impression right away. HAUCK SAYS: “We’re working on improving our linebacker group top to bottom. I believe we’ve done that through recruiting, position moves and young people gaining some experience last year and becoming better. It’s the position that is probably the biggest question coming out of spring ball. The jobs are open and it’s a spot where we’re looking for more production. We do have a highly recruited junior college player coming in who will need to perform for us.” CARTER

DEFENSIVE BACKS

THE SPECIAL TEAMS

Cornerback is the defensive spot with the most experience as a quartet of quality candidates was listed on the depth chart after spring. Sidney Hodge (5-8, 175, SO-1L; 44 TT, 1.5 TFL) looked like a potential standout after playing in nine games as a true freshman while veteran tackler Quinton Pointer (5-10, 185, SR-3L) is an NFL prospect hoping to be back at full speed after missing last year and this spring with an injury. Will Chandler (5-11, 185, SR-3L; 37 TT, 2.5 TFL) tied for the MW lead with five interceptions to go with two fumble recoveries while youngster Kenneth Penny (5-11, 165, FR-RS) is the new face of the POINTER group after redshirting 2010. The safety position is not as crowded. Eric Tuiloma-Va’a (5-11, 180, SO-1L; 48 TT, 1.5 TFL) is a returning starter and leads the strong spot while Tajh Hasson (6-1, 185, FR-RS) had a good spring at free. Former Air Force transfer Corbin Brown (6-0, 175, JR-TR) and veteran Kenny Brown (5-10, 175, JR-1L; 5 TT) are also part of the picture. HAUCK SAYS: “We have some solid experience at corner and that looks to be a strength for us. At the same time, safety is young and inexperienced. It’s a position where you have to take charge and know how everything works. There is a steep learning curve for young players at that position so we have some work to do.”

Nolan Kohorst (6-1, 170, SO-1L) showed as a freshman why he was the first place-kicker signed by UNLV out of high school in years as he led the team in points after nailing 8 of 11 field-goal attempts and 29 of 30 extra points. Coming in to compete for both punting and kicking duties is JC signee Chase Lansford (6-2, 190, JR-TR) out of Santa Ana College. Receiver Marcus Sullivan was arguably the nation’s top freshman kickoff return man a year ago, finishing 17th in all the FBS with an average of 27.9 yards per attempt. Deante’ Purvis (3 returns for 39 yards) and Tim Cornett (14-333) and Bradley Randle (18-329) are all expected to vie for return duties along with newcomer Eric Johnson. The squad’s long-snapping and holding duties are up for grabs heading into fall. HAUCK SAYS: “Kohorst is back and Lansford will come in and challenge for all three spots (punter, PK and kickoff). I think we have a chance to have a good return game this season. Our kickoff return game was pretty good and the coverage teams were good. We need to get our punt return game going as last year was not up to our standards. We have a chance to be real solid in all of those areas.”

THE SCHEDULE A year ago, UNLV faced one of the most challenging schedules in all of college football (third-toughest for any member of a Non-Automatic Qualifying Conference since the advent of the BCS in 1998 according to Sagarin Ratings Index) and it doesn’t figure to get much easier this fall. In fact, UNLV will play four teams that finished ranked 11th or higher last season and host only five games total at Sam Boyd Stadium. On Thursday, Sept. 1, the Rebels will begin their second season under Hauck by traveling to Wisconsin, which finished No. 7 in the final AP poll after playing in the Rose Bowl. It will mark UNLV’s first trip to storied Camp Randall Stadium since 2004. The Rebels will remain on the road and play at Washington State on Sept. 10 to mark the first meeting with the Pac-12 Conference program in 20 years and the first in Pullman, Wash., since 1986. UNLV’s home opener is set for Sept. 17 when future MW member Hawaii comes to town for what will be the Rebels’ latest Sam Boyd Stadium debut since 2004. That game will be followed up by a Sept. 24 visit from Southern Utah University for the first time since 1970. The Thunderbirds, who are scheduled to join the NCAA FCS Big Sky Conference in 2012, have played the Rebels three times in history (1968-70). For the first time since 2003, UNLV will have two open weeks in its schedule and the first one comes on Oct. 1. One week later, the 37th edition of the now-annual Battle for the Fremont Cannon will be waged when the Rebels head north to play another future MW member, Nevada, Reno on Oct. 8. A trip to Wyoming on Oct. 15 will mark the latest conference opener in school history before the second bye week kicks in on Oct. 22. Colorado State comes to Sam Boyd on Oct. 29 before Boise State (ended No. 9 AP) on Nov. 5 plays the Rebels for the first time since 1977 and against UNLV in Las Vegas for the first time since 1976. Trips to New Mexico on Nov. 12 and then Air Force on Nov. 19 will be followed by the home finale vs. San Diego State on Nov. 26. The regular season ends on Dec. 3 with a visit to defending Rose Bowl champion TCU, which finished ranked second in the nation. HAUCK SAYS: “With seven road games, four games against teams that were ranked No. 11 or higher last year, and two non-conference road games vs. teams from BCS auto-bid conferences, we’ll certainly be tested again every week. The addition of Boise State to an already strong league makes our conference as strong as ever. We had better get to work so we can compete with the teams on this schedule.”

Bobby Hauck, the winningest coach in Division One FCS, was hired as the 10th head coach in Rebel football history on Dec. 23, 2009, and immediately charged with spreading an attitude of success and discipline throughout a program thirsting for prosperity. Hauck (pronounced HOWK) immediately got to work rebuilding the UNLV program and guided his new school through the toughest schedule in its history, including taking on five conference champions and three opponents that finished ranked in the top 11 of the final AP poll. His first Rebel team emerged from that gauntlet with a 2-11 overall record but tied for sixth place in the Mountain West. Hauck had spent the previous seven seasons as the record-setting head coach of the University of Montana where he compiled an overall record of 80-17, including leading the Grizzlies to three national championship games in the NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA). The winningest coach in Big Sky Conference history (both in average victories per year and overall titles), Hauck earned at least a share of the league’s crown all seven years at Montana en route to compiling a record of 47-6. The more-recent numbers were even more impressive as his records over his last four seasons were 51-6 overall and 31-1 in conference play. “It’s my belief that Bobby Hauck is one of the great young coaches in America today” UNLV Athletics Director Jim Livengood said. “His ability to direct a program, his history of success in recruiting and his love for the game of football clearly project him as having an exciting future here at UNLV.” Hauck, 47, was named Big Sky Coach of the Year in 2006, 2007 and 2009 and AFCA Regional FCS Coach of the Year in 2006 and 2009. A veteran of eight bowl games, he also brought with him tremendous experience from stints coaching in both the Pacific-10 and Big 12 conferences.


HEAD COACH BOBBY HAUCK “The future of Rebel Football is bright,” Hauck said. “I’m excited to be a part of the process building UNLV Football into a winner. I enjoy working every day with this group of players and coaches, as well as our administration.” Hauck immediately caught the attention of his new community when he announced a 2010 recruiting class that included the most Southern Nevada signees (eight) in program history. The overall group boasted 10 players who were assigned at least three stars by either Scout, Rivals or Scouts, Inc., which was also the most on record for the Rebels.

SIGNEE PROFILES 2011 UNLV SIGNING CLASS

Head coach Bobby Hauck brought in players from states ranging from Florida to New York to Alaska to Nevada -- and all the way from American Samoa -- as his second UNLV football class, made up of 23 future Rebels, was announced. “This was a good day for UNLV, a real good day,” Hauck said. “Rebel Football took a big step forward with this recruiting class. These guys are big, tough football players and along with last year’s class, will be the basis for success in the future.” UNLV’s class boasted seven players who were assigned at least three stars by Scout, Rivals or Scouts Inc. The group consisted of student-athletes whose hometowns were spread among seven states and one territory: 12 from California, three from Texas, two each from Arizona and Florida and one each from Nevada, Alaska, New York and American Samoa. “We’ll go wherever we need to go to put together a good class. Sometimes that is down the street and sometimes that’s in Anchorage. Texas is a hot-bed of talent that remains productive for us, as we signed three guys out of there this year.” The recruits list, which did not include three grayshirts who signed a year ago but joined the program in January as true freshmen, featured 15 high school players and eight junior-college players, just one year after a class that included only one JC signee. “We have a group of junior college players that can provide us some immediate help. It was necessary to recruit a number of JC players because the size of our junior class was so small. The basis of our recruiting remains high school players but we needed to balance the numbers out.” The class was largely even with 12 offensive players and 10 on defense, plus one special teams player. The full breakdown is as follows: 4 DL, 4 OL, 4 DB, 3 TE, 2 LB, 2 RB, 2 QB, 1 WR and 1 PK/P. “We’re trying to change the makeup of our team -- trying to get bigger and more physical and certainly this class answers some of those concerns. It takes some time to develop the young guys but down the road this will provide us a big, physical group.”

THE REAL O.C.

CLAYTON SETS REBEL QB LONGEVITY RECORD

Even though he did not begin the season-opener under center, Omar Clayton soon regained his starting spot and ended up playing more career games as a Rebel quarterback than anyone in history. When he took the field against Air Force on Nov. 18, Clayton broke the school record for most games played as a quarterback at the school with 38 and finished with 40 outings. He started 35 of those efforts. Glenn Carano still holds the UNLV record for most career starts at the quarterback position with 36. Despite missing time in his first three seasons at UNLV because of injuries, Clayton provided the Rebels their most stable quarterbacking situation in nearly a decade. One of a stunning total of six QBs to start a game at the position from 2005-08, Clayton transformed himself from a fifth-string, invited walk-on from Normal, IL, into the man who challenged many of the school’s passing records. He finished second at UNLV -- behind only two-time All-American Randall Cunningham -- in various career categories: passing yards with 6,560, touchdown passes with 48, pass attempts with 962 and completions with 564, and second in rushing yards by a QB with 798. He also finished as the school’s all-time leader in passing percentage at 58.6 (564-962) and ranked second in lowest interception percentage at .031.

LAS VEGAS -- Wisconsin running back John Clay rushed for 123 yards on 17 carries and added two touchdowns as the No. 12 Badgers amassed 278 yards on the ground en route to a 41-21 win over UNLV in the season-opener at Sam Boyd Stadium. Rebel quarterback Omar Clayton came off the bench in the third quarter and finished with a team-high 59 yards rushing on nine carries in addition to going 6-for-16 for 82 yards and a touchdown through the air. Wide receiver Phillip Payne grabbed his 15th career touchdown reception, hauling in a pass from starting quarterback Mike Clausen late in the second quarter that brought the Rebels to within three at 17-14 at the close of the first half. Payne led all receivers with 71 yards on four catches on the night. Clay picked up 39 yards on the ground during Wisconsin’s 14-play, 80-yard opening drive which gave the Badgers an early 7-0 lead. Following a three and out from UNLV, the Badgers continued to hammer the ball on the ground, this time Montee Ball crossed the goal line for a one-yard touchdown to give UW a 14-0 advantage. UNLV capitalized off two Wisconsin turnovers to the tune of 14 points in the first half, closing the gap to 17-14. Will Chandler’s 19-yard interception return for a touchdown got UNLV on the board late in the first. Chandler came up big again in the second quarter, scooping up a Nick Toon fumble at the two-yard line and rumbling 82 yards down to the UW 16, setting up a Clausen strike to Payne one play later. The Badgers’ Aaron Henry returned a fumble for a touchdown less than two minutes into the second half, extending the UW lead to 24-14. Wisconsin would go on to score 17 more points in the third quarter behind a pair of 16-yard rushing touchdowns from Clay and Ball, putting the game out of reach at 41-14. Clayton finished off the scoring for the night with a nine-yard pass to Irshad Stolden, capping an eight-play, 80-yard drive for the Rebels.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah capitalized on several UNLV special teams mistakes and put up 14 points in both the second and third quarters to run away with a 38-10 win in perhaps the final game between the two teams at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City Saturday afternoon. Terrance Cain got the starting nod at quarterback in place of an injured Jordan Wynn and threw for 207 yards and a pair of touchdowns, helping extend the Utes’ home winning streak to a Mountain West record 19 games. UNLV used an 18-play 79-yard drive capped by Nolan Kohorst’s first collegiate field goal to knot the game at 3-3 late in the first quarter. Utah regained the lead at 10-3 when Eddie Wide punched it in from three yards out. The Utes added to their lead before the end of the first half, turning a UNLV fumbled punt return into seven points after Jereme Brooks found himself on the receiving end of a 20-yard pass from Cain with just over 30 seconds left in the second quarter. Just over a minute into the third quarter Cain found a streaking Shaky Smithson for a 55-yard touchdown, bringing the score to 24-3. The Rebels lone touchdown of the day came off a blocked punt by Nate Carter. Freshman Tim Hasson scooped up the block and sprinted 19 yards for the score, closing the gap to 24-10. Smithson found the end zone again late in the third following a 77-yard punt return for a touchdown, restoring the Ute lead to 21 at 31-10. Omar Clayton started his first game of the season and finished 18-of-37 for a game-high 217 yards passing, which moved him into fifth place on UNLV’s all-time passing yards list. Wide receiver Michael Johnson led all wideouts on the day, hauling in seven catches for 94 yards.

MOSCOW, Idaho -- Idaho scored on its first four possessions of the game and jumped out to a commanding 24-0 lead by halftime in a 30-7 win over UNLV at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow. It was the first time in series history that the Vandals were able to knock off the Rebels on their home turf. Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle was 15-of-27 on the day for 210 yards and a touchdown, hitting nine different receivers along the way. Tight end Daniel Hardy caught three passes for a game-high 82 yards and a score. The Vandals opened the game up with a 14-play, 69-yard drive capped by a Deonte’ Jackson one-yard touchdown run. Jackson also scored from one yard out late in the second quarter and finished the game with 21 yards on 11 carries. The Rebel offense could not get much going in the first half, gaining just 64 yards of total offense. After throwing for over 200 yards a week ago, starting quarterback Omar Clayton was kept in check, finishing 3-for-8 for 41 yards on the night before being pulled in the middle of the third quarter. Clayton’s replacement, redshirt freshman Caleb Herring, was 4-of-7 on the night with a touchdown and an interception. Herring’s 25-yard TD pass to Phillip Payne capped a five-play, 80- yard drive with just over a minute left in the game to avoid the shutout. Channing Trotter ran for 62 yards on 15 carries while Bradley Randle added 28 yards on four carries. UNLV’s defense stepped up in the second half, limiting the Idaho offense to just two field goals and coming up with a huge stop on fourth and goal from their own two-yard line. Will Chandler nabbed his second interception of the year while the Rebels recorded their first two quarterback sacks of the season.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Geno Smith passed for 220 yards and three touchdowns while Noel Devine added 84 yards on just three carries, scoring twice to lead the West Virginia Mountaineers to a 49-10 win over UNLV in the first-ever meeting between the two schools. WVU struck early and often, jumping out to a 21-0 lead after the first quarter of play. Smith found Brad Starks from 38 yards out just over a minute into the game to grab the early 7-0 lead before Devine reversed field on his first carry of the game and scored from 28 yards out just over three minutes later. West Virginia’s Jock Sanders scored on an end-around from 10 yards out to cap the scoring in the first quarter. Devine raced to the end zone from 48 yards out to make it 28-0 in favor of the home team and Starks caught his second of three touchdowns on the day from Smith, this time connecting from 48 yards out, running the total to 35-0 just before half. Starks’ third touchdown of the day - a four-yard pass from Smith - made it 42-0 before the UNLV offense would answer back. Nolan Kohorst connected from 39 yards out after the Rebels’ drive stalled late in the third, giving UNLV its first points of the game. Freshman Tim Cornett provided UNLV its only touchdown of the day, a six-yard strike from backup quarterback Caleb Herring early in the fourth, but it was too little, too late as WVU scored once more with just over five minutes remaining to extend its lead to 49-10. Omar Clayton started the game and finished 12-of-18 for 79 yards while Herring was 8-of-14 for 101 yards with a touchdown and interception on the day. In all, 11 different Rebel recievers caught a pass on the day, led by Austin Harrington’s three catches for 34 yards. Cornett finished the day with 56 yards on 12 carries while Deante’ Purvis rushed for 48 yards on 17 carries, both career-high numbers for the converted defensive back. Defensively, the Rebels were led by their trio of starting linebackers, Tani Maka, Ronnie Paulo and Calvin Randleman, who each tallied four tackles along with John Therrell.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Colorado State freshman quarterback Pete Thomas threw for 233 yards and three touchdowns, helping lead the Rams to a 43-10 win over UNLV. CSU jumped out to a 14-3 lead after the first quarter and extended it to 34-10 before half, racking up 298 yards of offense along the way. Leonard Mason put the Rams on the board after scoring from three yards out to cap an eight-play, 44-yard drive. Mason finished the game with 121 yards rushing on 14 attempts, averaging 8.6 yards per carry. After Nolan Kohorst connected on a career-long 47-yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-3, Thomas tossed his first touchdown of the day, hitting Eric Peitz from 14 yards out. Thomas made it 21-3 in favor of CSU when Lou Greenwood capitalized on a slip in the UNLV secondary, hauling in a 73-yard touchdown pass. Freshman Tim Cornett capped a 12-play, 73-yard drive late in the second quarter with his second rushing touchdown of the season from three yards out. Cornett finished with 74 yards on a game-high 17 carries. The Rams’ Derek Good returned the ensuing kickoff 74 yards and John Mosure punched it in from nine yards out two plays later, bringing the score to 27-10. UNLV reached into its bag of tricks, opting to run a fake punt from its own 29-yard line on a fourth and one, but failed to pick up the first down, giving CSU prime field position with just over a minute left in the half. Thomas made the Rebels pay with his third touchdown pass of the half, a 29-yard strike to Pietz. CSU tacked on three field goals in the second half and held the Rebels scoreless to walk away with the Homecoming win.

SAN DIEGO -- Ryan Lindley threw for 338 yards and four touchdowns as San Diego State jumped out to a 17-0 lead and never looked back, downing UNLV in both teams’ Mountain West finale, 48-14 at Qualcomm Stadium. Despite freshman returner Marcus Sullivan’s 60-yard kick return to open the game, UNLV could not come away with any points on the possession. SDSU took over on its own 39-yard line and drove the 61 yards in just five plays with Lindley finding Brandon Sullivan on a 17yard strike to go ahead 7-0. Brandon Sullivan notched his second touchdown of the night, this time on a oneyard rush to give the Aztecs a two-score lead with just over five minutes to go in the first. Abel Perez added a 42-yard field goal to put SDSU ahead 17-0 before UNLV answered. Sullivan returned the ensuing kick 73 yards down to the San Diego State 27-yardline, setting up the Rebels’ first score of the night as Omar Clayton found H-back Kyle Watkins in the flats for a 27-yard touchdown pass. Clayton finished the game 13-of-29 for 167 yards and a touchdown. The TD pass was the 46th of his career. SDSU would score the only points of the second quarter, with Lindley finding DeMarco Sampson for touchdown receptions of 41 and 50 yards respectively, giving the Aztecs a 31-7 lead at half. Lindley found Vincent Brown from three yards out minutes into the third and Perez added a 53-yard field goal to bring the score to 41-7 in favor of the home team. UNLV’s other score came with just over a minute on the clock when safety Mike Clausen picked up a fumble and returned it 64 yards for the score. Phillip Payne and Michael Johnson each pulled in five receptions on the night while Sidney Hodge tallied a game-high 10 tackles.

Interceptions: None.

WESTERN ATHLETIC

UNLV holds no WAC team or individual records.

Jon Denton set 10 NCAA freshman records in 1996, all of which have since been broken.

Randy Gatewood’s record of 23 catches in one game still stands.

No collegian has returned a fumble 100 yards since Kevin Thomas did it vs. Baylor in 1999. Jason Davis’ magical quarter of play in 1994 still makes him owner of five NCAA records.

Henry Bailey set an NCAA record for all-purpose yards in 1992.
