SEAL OF APPROVAL: Former UNLV men's basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian on his LAS VEGAS SUN blog wrote HBO overall "did a good job" with its upcoming documentary entitled "Runnin' Rebels of UNLV." Tarkanian: "They were professional and fair. The story had to be done and they had a lot of guts for doing it. ... I would say 75 percent of the program was positive. For me, that is a pretty good percentage" (LASVEGASSUN.com, 2/28).
