You can hear the excitement in UNLV coach John Robinson's voice, his team about to enter conference play at Air Force after winning four of five to start the season.

"Everybody is down to the part in a season where there are some injuries and some players might be able to play but not practice much," said Robinson. "We're have those issues, but we're playing good defense and feel real good about where we stand. It's going to be a heck of a month-and-a-half."

  • Robinson agrees that by seeing Air Force's offense each season, his and other conference teams own an advantage others don't. "I think you at least know what's going on and can show your players film of them responding to it," said Robinson. "It's never easy because it's a good offense, but you know what you're talking about."
