A new Vegas Nation Stadium Show is up. Check out @edgraney and I talking about the next steps toward building the 65,000-seat domed stadium for the Las Vegas Raiders and the UNLV Rebels:  https://www.reviewjournal.com/business/stadium/vegas-nation-stadium-show-construction-of-stadium-on-schedule/ 
@dtetreault20 Mostly concerned about cost of having games there. Even pass-through costs from Raiders could be higher than those at Sam Boyd Stadium.
This comment from Regent Trevor Hayes is bound to raise some hackles: “I hear from UNLV that this (stadium) is going to propel us into a Power 5 conference. ... I think this is more likely to sink our athletic program rather than catapult us.”
