  1. Place your bets

    Fall 2017 enrollment was 38,121. So if only 100 people voted it would be 0.26% Every thousand votes therefore would be 2.62% Source: https://www.ntdaily.com/unts-enrollment-hits-new-all-time-high/ https://percentagecalculator.net/ - i just did the math but for those who do not remember Jr High math here is a online tool.
  2. Place your bets

    Yes, coaches encouraged teams to vote... Landslide victory. I love this green kool-aid!
  3. Blast from the past

    When I was there last week the outdoor field had UNT on the rotating sign with Kroger and Whataburger.
  4. I may just be old but saying that it is a sport just like Quidditch just kills any credibility. I would have gone with Lacrosse, Rugby, Men's Soccer, Baseball, wrestling, or cycling (all of the above are club sports on the UNT site) Quidditch is a student organization not a club sport and like Dodgeball, and disk golf both of whom are club sports, just do make me think of legitimate sport... That being said, these students pay their own way (incliding ice time - $200/hr, equipment - used $200-$300 and uniforms - $100) as well as travel, hotel and meals for away games and tourneys. If you have the ability please throw them some cash to help with Regionals and budget some cash for next month when they advance and need to travel again. Give em hell Mean Green and bring home the hardware. For those that want references as to who is a club sport and quidditch being a student organization, here you go. http://recsports.unt.edu/sportclubs https://www.ntdaily.com/quidditch-club-provides-change-of-pace-from-traditional-sports-teams/ - " To expand its presence across the country, U.S. Quidditch does not require players to attend their team’s university. Those rules led North Texas Quidditch to make the switch from a sport club to a student organization in 2014"

    "UNT's student government is scheduled to meet during the first week of the spring semester to certify the election results. That meeting will take place the third week of January." - Brett Vito in DRC article titled Results of vote on UNT athletic fee delayed Dec 7 2017.
  6. English may not be the Savior!

    Unlike the so called "skilled positions" the big uglys on both sides of the ball can have an amazing year with little to no stats. so it is hard to say a number, but since I put it out there I would say if he averages 6 tackles a game and 5 or more sacks for the season that he is a man among boys... As a nose tackle, you are meant to clog the middle and will pull a high number of double teams and chips with a release to the linebacker. Splitting the blockers and making tackles is not expected but is an amazing benefit to the LB play. The more double teams you demand, the more you free your LB is to make a play.
  7. Over the last year there have been over 1,000 (1,038 to be exact) mentions of Bryce English. I know that he was very impressive in spring ball and others have stated that there is a bit of nasty in his play. All of which I am excited about. I am just concerned that when he makes it to the field that some on this board will expect him to be the messiah for our defense, I for one do not see that happening. Believe it or not, our defense did improve this year, not much but we did lower the total yards allowed per game by 8.4 yards. The main difference between this year and last year was big plays in pass defense (where we allowed 28.7 more yards per game) which ended up in scores (which we gave up 3.4 more points per game) Our weakness was not the D-line. If you watch the film (and know what you are looking for) you will see that our LB's were not able to shed a block and make a play - this is personally my biggest area of concern. Our line did a good job and absorbed their block and held most of the time. Our starters on the D-line combined for 132 tackles and 3.5 sacks (As a comparison West Virginia's D-line starters, who also run the 3-3-5 had 100 tackles and 6 sacks) Flusche posted 43 total tackles, 8.0 for loss, with 1.5 sacks, an interception, a pair of pass break-ups and four quarterback hurries. Young (who would be replaced by English) started all 14 games and finished with 48 tackles, 6.5 for loss with 2.0 sacks and eight quarterback hurries while garnering all-conference honorable mention status from C-USA's coaches. Hamilton finished with 40 tackles (22 solo), 4.0 for loss, an interception, a fumble recovery and five quarterback hurries. While I hope and pray that English adds 3-4 sacks and stops at least 4 big plays from happening next year, he is not the savior you are looking for. I think putting Young back out at end where he was projected to play this year with English at NT will be a boost, however I do not think it will increase our lines stats. The defensive saviour will come from the Linebackers or possibly the Secondary. I will gladly come back to this thread and eat crow this time next year if English is the savior of our defensive woes...
  8. next years game at Pig land

  10. Things Not To Do in New Orleans

    1. Do not take CD's of music from guys handing out their demos. At best it is a scam to get some money from you, but if you have too much money they will quickly escalate to a pick-pocket scheme where you have 3-4 guys around you all talking and touching your shoulder, shaking your hand, ect... and before you know it your wallet is gone... 2. Do not be an ass hat to the police, they will let you get away with a lot but they will bring down the hammer (boots, fist, and maybe a baton) if you go to far. (I have seen individuals tazed on Bourbon Street) 3. Do not mess with the Police horses that clear the street. After the horses knock you down the humans will make you wish you stayed home. 4. Do not pass out in a bar, they will ask you to leave once and then you will be "helped" to the alley. 5. Do not touch individuals who may or may not be trading a view for beads, the police see this as assault (see item 2) While I have not personally violated any of these rules, I have stopped the pick pocket, watched the police escort someone to the ground via light post and trash cans, saw a horse kick a guy who pushed it and the ensuing melee (or should I say legal dentition of an individual who assaulted a police officer), picked up a friend from the trash pile in the alley, and was across the street from a guy who grabbed a girl who was arrested for sexual assault. Have fun but remember that if you a sporting North Texas gear and you are an ass, you are hurting the school.
  11. Student Travel Package Extended

    You mean the east side of the Superdome? (what like section 140?)
  12. Here are some good places in the quarter, I am sticking to the quarter because that is where most will be hanging out and staying. Food: If you are in to healthy move to the next post, if you like good eats and will worry about your figure later read on... Cafe Beignet (Royal Street between Conti and Bienville) - cafebeignet.com - good Beignet without the zoo of Du Monde. Breakfast or snack only... Pierre Masperos (Chartres and St Louis) $15-$25 per entre- originalpierremasperos.com - it is housed in the oldest building in NOLA. Andrew Jackson met here to plan the defense at the Battle of New Orleans, was once a slave exchange, and was a coffee house for decades at the turn of the 19th century. I recommend the Chicken and Waffles, Crescent City Sampler, and the Shrimp and Grits. Start with the Fried Alligator. TO DO: Preservation Hall - Traditional New Orleans Jazz - Hour long show - $20 Cash only. shows at 6,8,9,10. No cameras, food or drink allowed. Small venue with over half the place standing room only. Get in line at least 30-45 min before the show or you will not get in.
