08:18 AM ET 01.23 | Two decades ago, Stacey Augmon was a cornerstone for the explosive, and polarizing, Runnin' Rebels under Jerry Tarkanian -- Dave Rice was a reserve. Today Rice is U.N.L.V.'s first-year coach; Augmon is in his first year as an assistant. Their joint mission is to continue restoring Runnin' Rebels basketball to its past glory. Without the baggage. ... This season U.N.L.V. is 18-3. An 80-63 thrashing of New Mexico on Saturday night sent a message that the fast-paced, full-court-pressure style that distinguished the Rebels' championship teams is on the way back. "I've always felt fortunate as a player and a coach to be part of college athletics and to be able to feel like I can make a difference with young people," Rice said.

Is there a bald headed guy chewing on a towel sitting on the bench?

If not, then it isn't the same.

I"m sorry, I have to ask, would it make you younger again or mean that you have Alzheimer's?

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....how true.And you ain't sorry, good one, LOL.

To be sure, I intended for the comment to only provide a little humor, which I hope it did. When I read your comment I thought if I had made that statement to my wife and full grown daughters at a family gathering, they would have been all over me about my memory. I thought I would share something, as a reply to you, that I would expect to hear if I made the same statement.

Have a good day...

I'm pretty sure that's how it works, Colonel. I think you also need to click your ruby slippers together, or something like that.

Well they sure put the hurt on my Frogs. At least the Frogs came from behind to beat Boise State Saturday for the first conference win between the two...in basketball they're more typically among the bottom dwellers of the MWC and unless things change we'll get murderized in the Big 12 next year.
