  1. Short answer is no, not McCasland. And, while I'm sure there are more people than just McCasland who could have improved on Bedford, I'm not sure the person we could have found on short notice in the middle of the summer would have been as good as those available waiting as we did. I have no actual knowledge the following happen, but based on the fact Wren is competent at his job. He can't formally offer anyone a job before Bedford is actually terminated as that's a violation of multiple laws. He could talk to agents to find out whom might be theoretically interested in a future job as long as there are a LOT of disclaimers. I suspect Wren did this and didn't find anyone he wanted to commit to being our next basketball coach at the time he took over. Yes, he could have improved on Bedford but probably not by enough to commit to that person when the best coaches are available right at the end of the season. I think Wren chose to wait knowing he would have a much stronger pool of candidate in March/April than in July/August. Again, I have no way of knowing this what he actually did, but I believe this is what happened. While I'm sure there are many in the fan base who would have preferred replacing the "F" coach Bedford with a "C" coach, I'm glad Wren chose to suffer through one more season to get an "A" or "A-" level coach
  2. DRC: UNT football notes -- Army series note

    Ok, let me rephrase. Going from 9-4 to 7-5 is going to cause people to forget a decade of success in one year? Don't forget they were pretty good before Herman even got there going 13-1 in 2011 and having only one season below 7 wins since. Both UH and Memphis are exactly the kind of teams we should be getting home and home's with because both have had the recent years of success our young alums want. Anyone who in DFW who hasn't heard of them isn't someone who watches college football and isn't going to come to our games no matter whom we play.

  4. DRC: Source -- UNT expecting assistants to return

    Looking back at the article, I think various assistants told VIto they weren't actively looking. If the ideal job should call, then all bets are off, but no one is looking this spring. The assistants wouldn't be telling SL, they'd be talking to a reporter who would disguise both who did the talking and exactly what was said.

    OK, I kept re-reading trying to figure out what you were seeing.
  6. Todd Dodge to UT

    IF he'd been successful, yes. But he was a abysmal failure.
  7. Home Opener Against SMU

    I'm not sure the conference has much, if anything, to do with the TV scheduling of OOC games. Viewers with ESPN expect a game to be on at Noon Eastern and ESPN finds a way to have one.
  8. SBC Bowl Season

    An AD that stupid should be fired. ALWAYS assume any microphone is on a recording, even cellphones around you!
  9. I started to do the "ha ha" but your comment is openly true today.
  10. Bobby Bowden on playing NTSU in the snow 1976

    It was my freshman year. Growing up in Edinburg, I didn't snow very often and NEVER at a football game. I didn't know to take plastic to sit on. With that I had as it was cold and then wet.

    Don't feed the trolls and they will go away.
  12. Bobby Bowden on playing NTSU in the snow 1976

    No kidding! From 1971 thru 1975, FSU went 19-43. We brought them in for an easy win. It was Bowden's first year.
