This morning I spoke with a UNLV source who answered a few questions that I had regarding UNLV and the stadium situation.
I asked my UNLV? source if UNLV was opposed to playing at any of the (9) sites that was brought up on the July 11th SNTIC meeting. "If they build a stadium for the ?#Raiders,? we will play in it, no matter where it is located." ?My UNLV? source aded "If they do not build a stadium, then we will attempt to still have one built for UNLV."
I also asked what ?UNLV intends to do with the ?Trop-42 land "The President (Len Jessup) has said all along that there are plenty of UNLV uses for the 42 if a stadium ends up NOT going there" The source went on to say that "Our campus is somewhat land-locked but having that space across the street gives the school growing room"
Summation: ?UNLV? will play in stadium wherever it's built. They know that Sam Boyd is out dated and they need a new stadium to advance the program and school. UNLV will attempt to build a stadium if the proposed stadium (that they will share with the Raiders) isn't approved & will use Trop 42 land for other school buildings if a stadium is built.
