Too Bad

From the LVRJ:
On the eve of UNLV’s emotional game against UNR, the Rebels made an announcement that was surprising only in the timing.
Bobby Hauck will resign Monday as the Rebels’ football coach after five seasons, and he said in a text message that timing the announcement for late afternoon Friday as a way to further fire up his team for today’s 7:30 p.m. game at Sam Boyd Stadium, where UNLV will attempt to keep the Fremont Cannon that it took from UNR last year.
Hauck broke the news to his players at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
“We were given an opportunity to get it done here at UNLV, and we simply did not win enough games,” Hauck said in a statement through the athletic department. “It’s my responsibility to push the program forward, and I wish we would have produced better results.”
Bobby Hauck is a good man and a champion in NCAA football.
The UNLV is a football program is a disgrace, not caused by Hauck but by a lack of support of UNLV and it's supporters.
The UNLV alumni, students and administration do not support the football program, even though UNLV has had several quality coaches come through to try their best.
Maybe it is time for UNLV to drop football or send it down to the minor leagues.
