Stefphon Jefferson sets a new Nevada school record with 7 TDs

Nevada's Stefphon Jefferson had a career game versus the Hawaii Warriors Saturday, rushing for 6 touchdowns and catching another to set a new Nevada school record with 7 total TDs in a game. Jefferson also moved himself to the top of the leaderboards and became the nation's leading rusher (699 total yards on the year). Congrats Stefphon, and keep on runnin' young fella!

Nevada AD Cary Groth to retire at end of academic year

I just can't quit you MW Connection. It was announced today that Cary Groth has decided to retire at the end of the academic year (which means next summer essentially). Groth's tenure has been a bit of a fire rod for some Nevada fans, but this gives the university ample time to come up with a suitable replacement.

Former Nevada basketball coach headed to TCU to take over as head coach

Trent Johnson, the former Nevada head coach who was at the helm for their '04 sweet 16 run, has been hired to take over as head coach for the TCU Horned Frogs (of former MWC decent). Johnson was most recently the head coach at LSU.

Nevada wins NIT opener, awarded home game for 2nd round

Nevada won their 1st round NIT game over Oral Roberts on Wednesday. The Pack's next game will be at home against Bucknell.

Wolf Pack's Deonte Burton Wins WAC Player of the Year; Head Coach David Carter Wins Coach of the Year

The Nevada Wolf Pack had a couple individual awards handed down to them today with sophomore Deonte Burton taking home POY honors and head coach David Carter taking home COY honors. Wolf Pack senior Olek Czyz joined Burton with a selection to the All-WAC first team. Senior Dario Hunt was selected to the All-WAC second team, and along with sophomore Jerry Evans was selected to the All-WAC defensive team.

Nevada Clinches At Least a Share of the WAC Crown After a 3OT Win Over Fresno State

After pulling out a triple overtime victory over Fresno State on Saturday night, the Nevada Wolf Pack clinched at least a share of the WAC regular season crown. There's a chance Fresno could get a chance at redemption once the WAC tournament begins, or they may have to wait until next season in MWC play. Also, I may or may not have posted this simply to rub it in ROFLCOPTER16's face.

Nevada Hires Former Colorado State Associate Head Coach Larry Lewis to Round Out Coaching Staff

As a follow up on my post the other day, Nevada has hired Larry Lewis to fill its last vacant position on their new-look coaching staff. Lewis spent 2011 as an associate head coach for the Colorado State Rams, so he should bring some knowledge of the MWC with him to the Pack. Lewis will serve as the running backs coach and special teams coordinator.

Nevada mascot Wolfie Jr. wins Capital One Bowl mascot of the year

A win for the little man I guess. The win comes with a $20,000 scholarship for the mascot program at Nevada (which I guess can't hurt for a program with some financial difficulties).

Recruiting for mid-major programs very different today than in the past

Interesting article on how recruiting has changed over the years for Nevada, though much of it applies to all college programs. With the advent of the internet and the popularity of sites such as Rivals.com, keeping recruiting a secret has become nearly impossible and has made verbal agreements mean far less than they used to. Well worth a look as it is an excellent read.
