UNLV Football's Latest Woes
UNLV Football's Latest Woes

Listen
AIR DATE: December 13, 2011

UNLV's football program has struggled over the years to put a competitive team on the field.  And with the announcement this week that football programs from Boise State and San Diego State are moving to the Big East, there's some panic with the remaining teams in the Mountain West Conference. Recruiters often use the teams within a conference to court players, and with two powerhouses bowing out of the Mountain West, UNLV will be hard pressed to become a competitor.
 
We ask: what will this mean not only for UNLV's football team but for the overall athletic department?  Listen to 88.9 KNPR at 9 am when Athletic Director Jim Livengood joins us to explain why he feels the future of his program is still bright.
