Nevada sells their tickets and other links

Our Bowl game is technically a neutral site affair, but it will feel like a Nevada home game. The Wolf Pack fans sold out their original allotment of 11,000 seats and have sold an additional 4,000 tickets. I don't have an official count from BC but I can assure you we are well behind that pace. This is as expected though since Reno to San Francisco is an easy drive and this is Nevada's first drivable bowl game. Plus they are coming off the Boise win. I don't think the atmosphere will make a big difference. The silver lining though is we can continue to tell Bowls that although we don't sell a lot of tickets directly, we generate interest locally and among opposing fans.

Here is a story from a few days ago on John Cahill one of our walkons receiving serious playing time.

Although he didn't win many individual national awards, Luke Kuechly was named to the Walter Camp team.

This Maryland blog has a good early take on our basketball team. I can't wait for the game against the Terps on Sunday. We've shown we can beat some quality teams, but this game will show if we can be competitive within the upper half of the ACC.

Other than the wonderful All-American awards, did Keuchly win any individual awards? I don't recall any.

Awesome awards for a true sophomore. This should help with recruiting! KPL getting second team EsPn ACC as a frosh is big too.
