Following a string of solid outings to begin the season and with them the rising hopes of taking "the next step" as a program earlier than any could have imagined, UNLV laid an egg at Nevada on Saturday. For the first time all season, UNLV simply looked bad, getting outplayed in every facet of the game and resulting in a 41-6 drubbing at the hands of their bitter in-state rival. The Heaven's Herald sat down with the always colorful Coach Hale for an interview after the game: The Herald: Coach, just take a few seconds and give us your thoughts on this game. Coach Hale: We got destroyed. We were terrible. I thought we might end up being good. But we suck. We really do. So frustrated with myself, with my players, and with just a total lack of effort throughout the game. Very dissappointed. We suck. We suck bad. The Herald: You guys seemed to start off slow. But then down 14-3 in the 2nd, you were making a drive and you could feel the turnaround, which we have already come to expect with your team... to keep fighting. But then your star RB Tim Cornett fumbled for the 1st time all year and on the same play, got injured again and sat out the rest of the game. You have some thoughts on that play being the biggest play of the game and kind of the nail in the coffin a bit? Coach Hale: Nope. But I have some thoughts on Tim Cornett. He's about to get his ass cut if he can't man up and play some damn football. He's lucky he's not my son... I'll tell you that. What? His back hurts? Spasms or something? Well my back hurts too. Stop crying like a little bitch and play some football. The tough thing is I'm a realist so I understand he's all we got, that his talent is what might make or break us. Well? Sad that one kid can have so much talent, and really so much power, and be such a puss. And what am I supposed to do? No idea. But I can tell you this... we just added two new RBs to our Recruiting board, that's for damn sure. The Herald: That game hurt. Is there anything to take away from it as you get Wyoming at home next week? Coach Hale: Welp. Wyoming isn't Nevada, that's for sure. We suck. But at least we aren't Wyoming. And to be quite frank, and you can quote me on this... their coach is an idiot. He runs his mouth a lot and that's about it. Can't wait to beat them at our place. I guess in terms of takeaways, yea, at least this last one wasn't a conference game. Wyoming will be our first of those. So we'll be 1-0 in conference play at least. But who really cares? We will still suck. It's not like beating Wyoming is anything to get excited about. The Herald: I have to admit your honesty is both refreshing and quite humorous. Some say even a show. That maybe you speak this way to simply grab some headlines and put UNLV on the map. Is this maybe a bit of a show? An act? Coach Hale: Ask my wife.
