Having registered their best football season in 1991, which included one of the more memorable comebacks of all time, the folks at the university on the hill in Reno decided to celebrate. They decided once and for all time to rid themselves of something very small that has been a very big irritant. That hyphen. From now on, they want to be known as the University of Nevada. Period. No hyphen, no comma. No more University of Nevada-Reno. Or Nevada, Reno. Or even worse, UNR.

Best thing the Big West Conference did this week: Decided to move its postseason bowl game from Fresno to Las Vegas in 1992. Intended result: No more tanking of late-season Big West games to avoid second trip to Fresno. Possible ramification: Name change from California Raisin Bowl to I'll See You And Then I'll Raise You Bowl. Next-best thing the Big West Conference did this week: Invited Nevada to replace Fresno State in 1992.
