    Don't know where they are gonna go, but definitely good to take a new direction. I hope they can increase the salary a little bit.

    North Texas to Host MEGA camp!!

    Hmmm. Not looking for ponies at a UNT camp. If somebody is a pony he can go lose down in Dallas, what UNT needs is some real high flyers who can claw and scratch.

    USA Today 1-130 Post Spring Ball

    Like every season there are some very questionable points on these lists, the fact that UNT is for once ranked better does not change that. That said, it sure is nice to be among the better G5s on this list rather than in the 100s. Apparently, UNT is a solid favorite over SMU. I don't feel like I will be equally confident about that one until I see it happen.

    Men's Golf

    I am truly unsure how you mean this. Are you insinuating that coach Stracke is doing things that are ethically questionable? Or are you just saying that he is unpersonable and aloof when it comes to Texas HS golf? The difference in implication would obviously be big.

    Men's Golf

    I would say that womens tennis should also be in the conversation (with exception of this year). But I agree with your general point.

    Men's Golf

    Definitely a disappointing end to the season. The last two tournaments were no good at all. That said, looking at the past several years under Stracke, they are the exception, not the rule. Missing the top 4 feels bad because we are used to UNT men's golf being perennially in the top 3 of the conference. With all that said, UNT is now ranked 66th in the golfstat rankings, that may be juust good enough to squeeze into the NCAA regionals anyway. I don't think that this is because or despite its internationally oriented recruiting system. I have my doubts whether UNT would attract Texas A&M or UT kind of talent even if its coach were more locally oriented. UNT is also doing this approach in tennis (usually fairly successfully by the way).

    2 C-USA QBs drafted in 2018

    He might I am not sure... but how that boy from Wyoming (his numbers are baaaad, that almost always translates to bad number in the NFL too) got drafted so high is a complete mystery to me. I see him not as a probable, but rather as a certain bust. edit: just to clarify: with numbers I mean his passing accuracy stats
  9. And neither of them was as good last season as Mason Fine, the C-USA offensive player of the year 2017. 13 QBs were drafted overall. Despite his small frame, if Mason keeps this productivity up, he will get drafted. He doesn't even need to improve much, he just needs to stay healthy. As an aside, C-USA had 10 players drafted. Obviously, that is just a snapshot, but that is twice as many as the MAC (5), and 3 times as many as the belt (3), and just a tad more than the MWC (9). Its a pity UNT couldn't get in on the party, but it is well on its way to getting there.

    DRC breaking news -- AJ Lawson to transfer

    UNT definitely loses a legit player, and yet, this may still turn out to be good for everyone. He may end up at a place on the same level where he can shine, and the coach gets some roster flexibility which he may actually have needed I feel.

    DRC: Wilson, McClain show skills at pro day

    Probably not better for the player, but definitely better for the university program trying to break a draftless streak that is likely used against it in recruiting.
  12. I do think that it matters that these are the numbers from 16-17, and I wonder very much how football and basketball success plus added salaries will change them this season. I think both revenues and expenses will have gone up a good tick for UNT. And that is after UNT already increased its recruiting budget for Bball by 50% in two years. also: I am surprised how close the Aggies have gotten to the Longhorns in terms of revenue while spending way less.

    Regal Eagle is For Sale - $350k

    350k. Seems steep to me considering the thing is more than 10 years old.
  14. Its a good rumor to put out there, if you think of negotiating up your salary ;)

    Scott Cross fired at UTA

    Wow. If this had happened last season, I have a hard time believing he wouldn't be the coach at UNT now. As it is, I guess UNT did fine in the hiring department, but this is not a smart move by UTA. Watch UNT take back control of that series. Cross will land on his feet. I am not aware of any off-the-court issues, and the man had 72 wins the last three seasons. 72! I wouldn't be surprised if his new employers pays him more than UTA did.
