If Las Vegas and Reno argue endlessly whether UNR can call itself "Nevada" and, by doing so, give itself some edge UNLV doesn't have, did anyone ever consider making UNR just plain U of N while UNLV becomes NSU (Nevada State University)?

Two separate schools with totally separate identities? University of Nevada and Nevada State University.

UNLV began as Nevada Southern and didn't become UNLV until 1969.

There already is a Nevada State College. Creating a Nevada State University probably would be confusing to a lot of people.
