    Yep - You would get many fans of teams not in the game to make the trip to Vegas.

    It's not just UNLV funding this thing. They'll get casinos and other major investors onboard. UNLV stands to benefit in a major way. I see nothing but positives coming out of this.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    UNLV is not even the best football team in Nevada.........

    Yeah but major events aren't exactly drawn to Reno.

    A 100 yd. video board? No thanks, that's too large The video board at Jerry World is amazing at first, but it later became a distraction from the actual game.

    While the NCAA doesn't control the new playoff system, they had to approve two teams playing an extra bowl game. So they might put out the word behind the scenes that Vegas need not apply for it.

    Minimum of 70k. Figure it to be configured like Cowboys where they can expand seating for the big events. Appears to have a curtain-like design to cover up the upper deck for smaller events like MLS soccer (or, for that matter, UNLV football).
