    Jerry Tarkanian was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame!!!!.....it will be officially announced on Monday at the Final Four in New Orleans.....I remember when Tark and the Rebels had the Thomas & Mack "rockin to the rafters"....sold out for years!!!....18,500 strong!!!....in 1990, they put the biggest buttwhipping ever in the NCAA Championship game, against "Duck" (Duke)!!!....101 to 71.....The RAT ( coach K) was close to a heart attack!!!!....his mouth kept getting smaller and smaller (like a rat), and his nose kept sticking out more and more (like a rat), and his eyes kept getting beadier and beadier (like a rat).....to this day I refer to them as "Duck and the Rat"....Mojo

    • Don't know if you know this or not but he was the head coach for the San Antonio Spurs in 1992. Was the only pro-team he ever coached. I lived in San Antonio for over 10 years and it was a big deal when he came there. At all the games, they game out whip towels & would play the Jaws "theme"....to bad he did and Red McCombs didn't get along...he left after something like 25 games (?)....anyway...he deserves to be in the HOF....great coach

    • Tark deserves to be in the HOF, no doubt about it..........just to fix your mistake, the score was 103-73. Not a Duke fan or UNLV fan either, but you did forget to mention Mojo, that the following year UNLV was undefeated and a huge favorite to beat Duke, and they lost to Duke 79-77. They would have been the first team to go undefeated since Indiana did in 1976. It was the biggest upset in the final since NC State beat Houston 82-83 season. You didn't for a moment think your post was going to slip by me did you? Duke got them back!!
