Runnin' Rebels of UNLV (HBO)
Release Date: March 12, 2011
Running Time: 58 minutes 28 seconds
But,as was par for the course, the referees wouldn't let this game play out as it should have. They took point guard Greg Anthony out of the game late in the second half on one of the most glaringly blatant calls I've ever seen. Instead of Anthony heading to the line to complete an and-one after hitting a layup, he gets called for his fifth personal foul, and the Rebels had to play without it's leader for the last 5 minutes of the game. Still in all they only lost by two points. Given the circumstance the game shouldn't have been as close as it was, but when the refs don't let the players decide the outcome of the game, you know what's up.
Let's not sugarcoat what went on at UNLV. Tark went out of his way to recruit questionable characters, for lack of a better term. Lloyd Daniels became the posterboy for these types of players, but let's not forget the infamous Richie Adams, a 6-8 Bronx playground legend who is currently serving time for murder. Tark even went so far as to pay a recruiting visit to a player while he was in reform school, the 6-10 Clifford Allen. Then there were was all the other stuff going on, like payments to players and all other types of illegal activity. With the NCAA up Tarkanian's ass, it was only a matter of time that he would get run out of Vegas.
Long Live Tark the Shark!!!
