    3 Years Ago: A QB Race

    In the second scene just before they switch to the first Canales interview you see #19 throwing the ball. As you may or may not know, he's our current back-up to Mason Fine......and he came off the bench cold last year and threw a TD pass against a B-10 school. As I recall I assessed him (Shanbour) and DW as being the best pure passers of the group. I also spent all spring scratching my head over Greer and all the reps he was getting. I couldn't decide if DW was undisciplined, unfocused, or just not all that bright.

    Garbage Stadium Rankings from the DMN

    Once again we find ourselves in agreement. I don't like running and/or prancing out on the field. To me, a high-stepping double time (Ohio State) is sufficient to convey energy and enthusiasm and get the home crowd going.

    You are too kind if you are talking about pregame. I've always characterized it as Jr. High. You know, I would be glad to co-coordinate it with you IF "Letsgiveacheer" would volunteer to be the musical director.....and/or Christopher Walker. Their halftime is "acceptable', but only after they have entered the field and started the musical core of the show.

    You feel more positive about this than me. The way I see it (based on the historical lack of attention to promoting game time traditions) with a 2/3rds capacity @ Apogee we would have a larger, and louder unorganized rabble, instead of a smaller unorganized rabble.

    Totally agree. We have a great stadium, but our atmosphere inside the stadium sucks. The spirit traditions at pre-game and game time are, (at best), perfunctory and just going through the motions. Here is how you set the atmosphere for the game... or this....

    And it turned out that all the "hype" (derived from the word Hyperbole) about Hayden Fry was much more in line with reality than the "Hype" about Dodge.

    There was a lot of local hype from the media when Hayden Fry was hired.

    2018 Schedule Thoughts

    We won't know until about midway through the SMU game.

    2018 Schedule Thoughts

    You don't get burned deep as often as our defense did unless you have poor DB coverage or your DL is not chasing the QB around. On many occasions we had pretty good pressure from the outside, but not up the middle. But a good amount of those burnings had to do with poor DB coverage too. Get one aspect of that defense cured and we're 10-2 for sure. Get them both corrected (mostly) and we could be seeing a 12-0 season.

    Texas at El Paso lands big time fullback

    Here's one running against the North Texas defense last year.

    AD is posting real donor numbers

    I agree that Army and/or Navy is good for our program, but only because their supporters (which are everywhere in the metroplex) show up in larger numbers than North Texas fans. I never realized how many seats around me (section 105) had been unsold until the Army game when there were many Army fans all around me. So fill in those gaps with people wearing green instead of black and yellow........THAT is what will be best for our program. And don't piss off the best coach we've had here since Hayden Fry.

    Throwback: Houston at North Texas 1975

    There he is, the great safety/punt returner (and for a while a record holder as a receiver in the NFL) J.T. Smith. from WiKi, his NFL stats. John Thomas (J. T.)

A 6'2", 185-lb. undrafted wide receiver and punt returner from the University of North Texas, Smith played for the Washington Redskins, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the St.Louis/Phoenix Cardinals. His best year as a professional came during the strike shortened 1987 seasonfor the Cardinals when he led the NFL with 91 receptions for 1,117 yards. J.T Smith has to be one of the most forgotten players that ever graduated from North Texas. And yet, next to Abner Haynes and Joe Greene, he was one of the most successful in the NFL.

    DRC: UNT wide receivers outlook for 2018

    He has a good chance, but if Mr. Young finally gets to play at his most natural position (DE) for a full year, I predict he will be our next draftee.

    .....and the same goes for Mr. Guyton.
