Notice anything wrong with that billboard?

That photo, of a billboard on I-215 in Las Vegas, was taken by the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday. Lon Kruger, the guy you see up there in a suit, as been at Oklahoma since April … of 2011.

UNLV’s head coach for the past two seasons has been Dave Rice. He’ll be coaching them again this year. He looks like this. At least he took it in stride, telling the paper “if Coach Kruger can help us sell tickets, great.”

Mamadou Ndiaye is one of the most unique players in college basketball.

Because he’s 7-foot-6.

Guys like that don’t come around often, and when they do, they do things like this: posterizing an opponent without having to jump.
