I thought the cannon was no longer fired at games because the UNR football coach had it sealed when UNR posessed it in the 90s. --4.246.3.1 02:48, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

Nevada vs. UNR on Wikipedia[edit]

Constantly editing back and forth between Nevada and UNR in articles in a pointless and will be a never ending endeavour. Lets use this area as discussion, and might I suggest a Wikipedia moderator lock the article down until there is a decision made by the Wikipedia Staff.


The argument for "Nevada"[edit]

In athletics across the country, the school is known as Nevada, not UNR or Nevada-Reno. this is true for ESPN, FOX, CBS, and other media outlets. The only location in the country where Nevada is referred to as UNR is in the state of Nevada because of the rivalry, most of it coming from people who live in the Las Vegas area.

I've opened a support request with the administrators and moderators to have a decision made to avoid this from spreading to other articles, and can be found here: Wikipedia:Editor_assistance/Requests#Articles_relating_to_college_sports_in_the_state_of_Nevada.2C_relating_to_Nevada_and_UNLV Twintop (talk) 04:21, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Results colors[edit]

I changed the shading colors in the game results table to match each school's official color, using the hexadecimal equivalent listed on their respective websites.

I believe these are easier to read than the previous colors. Please advise if you disagree with this change. --LJ (talk) 22:36, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
