Rightfully so because his teams victory over Washington State left zero doubts that this team has something special going for them this season.
Now if they manage to find a way to steal a win on the road against
Arizona, then “boom goes the dynamite” like Polian always says. Make no

short at the end. But it is nice to see this team carry themselves with
so much “Nevadatude.”
