  1. CUSA refs at their finest

    Didn't see why on the first call. If he said anything while pointing on the second, they probably got him for taunting.
  2. New Recruiting Coordinator Announced

    A grad student working on her dissertation identified the top three predictors for D1 recruits. Her prediction success rate was about 70%. Number 1 was making an official visit. The second predictor was distance living from the institution. Nearness to the school was a plus. The third dealt with social media. She found that the more a recruit followed coaches, players, and other recruits for a school, the more likely they were to select that school.
  3. Desoto HC resigns

    He wins a state championship and then talk of firing him. I would do a lot of digging before I hire him.
  4. Frog WR Isaiah Graham transfers to La. Tech

    You know it is a very real possibility this was a done deal before it ent public. I also noticed he did not include the usual I want to thank school X, coaches, and players for the opportunities I had at my former school.
  5. I have been on both ends as employer and employee. As an employer, I appreciate someone coming to me to say they are looking. I have encouraged people to apply for positions that would be an advancement over the current position. It also provides an opportunity to compare my position with the opposing position. I know all employers don't feel that way. As an employee, if my boss hinders me from improving my status, I am already looking for something else.
  6. Part of Our Problem

    Certainly Vanderbilt has a plus reputation. There is more to it than the overall reputation of a school. Every school has relative stronger and weaker departments. Good hirers know the relative reputations of departments. In fact, research has shown the institutional reputation is only a force for about five years. This is because a recent graduate likely has little work history; therefore GPA and institutional reputation is important. After five years, hiring is based on work performance history not on other factors. Saints fans don't care where Robertson went to school? They just care how well he does his job. Same way in life.
  7. Are we rooting for UCF?

    Yes, for UCF. Anyone that takes on an SEC team has my support. I think the gap between G5 and P5 has Ome about primarily because of SEC practices. It is not that the other P5 conferences have it joined in but the SEC WOULD LIKE IT TO BE THEM THEN ALL THE OTHERS.
  8. Someone may know better, but a DII coach told me an early signee could get a second chance if the HEAD coach. It would not apply to assts.. Does anyone know for sure if this is right?
  9. Cooley's All Time UNT Basketball Team

    John Savage played in the early 60's. He came from Detroit,.Tx and had reportedly played on a dirt court. He played when NTSU did not have Avery good team. He was a star in the Missouri Valley Conference when it was referred to as the VALLEY OF DEATH. conference champ Cincy was national champs his sophomore year and runner up his junior year.

    Merry Christmas
  11. New Commit Derrick Shaw 12/22

    Well-spoken young man.
  12. Houston AD hired by Arkansas

    Lot of Arkansas fans not impressed by the hire. Mike Norvell and Chad Moriss getting a lot of play on air.
  13. We played four of the top fifty teams in total defense. We beat three of them: UTSA, UAB, and Army.
  14. Perspective

    We need to look at our success in perspective. Of our 11 FBS opponents, seven are currently bowl eligible. If LaTech and ODU were to win their last game, both would also be bowl eligible. This means of the 11, bowl eligible opponents will have constituted 7-9 of our schedule. Not shabby at all.
  15. Student tickets

    In 1960, we showed a picture less ID. ALSO, I only paid $50 tuition, $25 student activity fee, and $5 refundable loss breakage fee.
