The Nevada Primary Election is being held earlier than ever this year on June 8th. There are some heated battles happening in this anti-incumbent environment. We'll talk about the Republican Senate Race and others. We'll also discuss environmental issues, specifically the BP Oil Spill. Finally, we'll discuss the state of taxes in Nevada, the United States, funding of basic State services, and the Democrats' ability to sell their message.
The series continues with Jeremy and Chris previewing the Nevada Wolf Pack's upcoming 2015 season. There are plenty of questions to be answered with the graduation of quarterback Cody Fajardo and defensive leader Brock Hekking.
Those are the two of the main issues but the quarterback situation should come down to Tyler Stewart or Dante Mayes, and with these two having a few years in the program there likely will not be much of a drop off, if any.
The running backs and receiving corp are strong despite the loss of wide our Richie Turner, but the offensive line loses three starters.
The defense allowed a lot of yards but was solid in not giving up too many points at 27.2 points per game. The secondary has to start over with three new starters, but the front seven returns the vast majority of starters.

The Nevada Wolf Pack are up next for our preview series of Mountain West teams. Jeremy comes off of his high of thinking Nevada can win the West, well kind of. Chris feels that Nevada has the scheme and/or talent each year to be in consideration for a bowl game.
One area that really needs to improve is their defense and even though they are returning 10 starters there are plenty of question marks on that side of the ball.
The offense has worries as well but last year there was a mix of injuries and players under performing, but can Year 2 of Brian Polian era turn things around now that Polian

This week, we have a very special guest for the whole two hours. We're very pleased to welcome Candian pro wrestler & wrestling historian "Mr. Beefy Goodness" Vance Nevada.
After being trained by Ernest Rheault in River City Wrestling at the tender age of 17, Nevada had a rough go of it. He was a small fish in a big man's game.
Soon he hit his stride in tag matches with Robby Royce, and by 1994 The Wild Ones were successes in the Manitoba area.
Nevada decided to strike out on his own, and began a heated feud with Royce, which was played out over the airwaves of RCW's weekly TV program and culminated in a ladder match. After the match, Nevada was out of action for two month with injuries.
When he returned to action, he tagged with Bugsy Sluggliano as Models Inc. Their feud with Robby Royce and Andy Anderson even carried over into the Carolinas and Kentucky.
Next up for Nevada was the Canadian Junior Heavyweight title, which he has held six times between 1995 and 1998. He has feud with Spice Richards, Andy Anderson, Alex Rain, Todd Myers and many more over the belt.
A series of injuries forced him to retire in early 1999.
Vance is also the author of "Wrestling In The Canadian West"...a comprehensive and exhaustive history of professional wrestling in Western Canada.
A brilliant speaker and one of the greatest minds in the wrestling business, "Pure Class" is pleased to welcome Vance Nevada to the show tonight! This is one show you WON'T want to miss!
Nevada Sky documents a life of inspiration, reinvention, and marks a profound coming together of many of the facets of Blachley’s life ,family, photography, music, loves won and lost, and professional and personal aspirations.In Blachley’s journey, he’s been a carpenter and served in Vietnam. His second act was being a music video pioneer through making culture-defining videos with the Stray Cats, George Thorogood, and Duran Duran as an executive producer/marketing visionary. During this time, Blachley worked at Capitol/EMI, and he went from mailroom up to being a music marketing exec before cross-fading to EMI’s Picture Music International as music video executive, content producer and marketerer. At 50, his music business tenure ended, and he reinvented himself as a gallery owner, co-finding the fine art music photography gallery the Morrison Hotel Gallery with partners Richard Horowitz and iconic photographer Henry Diltz.“There is hope in the fact that you can always reinvent yourself. Reinventing is about finding something you want to do everyday, something that makes you happy, and finding a way to make money doing it,” . For his third act, Peter Blachley is emerging as a captivating singer-songwriter with his debut album,Nevada Sky. It’s one of those storyteller albums that instantly feel like an old friend. It recalls the work of CSN, John Stewart, Neil Young, Waylon Jennings, Ian Tyson. It stretches across the highways of high lonesome country, confessional folk, and swampy rock n’ roll and it authentically evokes the rugged mountains and big open skies of the West, and the burly swagger of the big cities of the east it is pure Americana through and through.Nevada Sky folds family stories, personal and professional journeys, and lifelong dreams into one Americana storybook. Blachley says in conclusion “With this album, I’ve left my legacy "
