UNLV athletics have room for improvement, as far as the play of the teams goes. However, UNLV sports are improving greatly. Though few know it, the big sports aren't the only improving athletics at UNLV. Everyone here seems to want there to be more school spirit, but there has been little done in the past few years to encourage or promote full blown-out athletic events like other state schools. It's not to say there is no knowledge or support for the athletics. In every class, you will probably meet an athlete of varsity or intramural level, and there are more than enough willing to start new club or IM sports. So, if you were an athlete in high school, there is opportunity to keep that up here at UNLV.
Over the last few years, UNLV has hired many elite coaches with Lon Krugar (basketball) and Utah's former offensive coordinator, Mike Sanford (football) being the two biggest. With the attendance not as high as UNLV would hope at most of their sporting events, Hamrick even hired new marketing people to help move this along. As soon as students start attending the UNLV games, sports will be improved tremendously around campus.
