  1. DRC: Examining UNT's 2018 schedule

    Theyve already done it once
  2. DRC: Examining UNT's 2018 schedule

    I agree... The sooner we can get ahead of something like this, the better. Its not our Super Bowl game, but we need to have it on student's radar as soon as fall classes start. Of course, if the team has a great season up to that point, attendance may not be an issue.

    I think this is the most realistic reach goal... Lose to ark and FAU twice again. Win bowl game. I know you dont want to admit defeat to FAU twice this early... but lets be real. I would be thrilled with this result. GMG!

    Yes... this happens to me! My favorite though... is when I wear an UNT polo to work on Fridays, people around the office think I am a Philly fan. I tell them that its UNT, not Philly. They retort with "well isnt that the Eagles logo?"

    There are some great points being made here. A couple thoughts... One, is that there is some hard truth to what @wardly is saying. What we have been putting on the field in recent history has been bad. In fact... the long history of UNT football has been bad for the most part. Why would you be interested in that? It has been a part of the culture for years. Most students on campus think "we suck at sports." Have they looked to see how we are doing? No. Have they ever tried going to a game? No. Are things turning around? Yes. I think we are headed in the right direction. We are not selling the same dog food. The dog food tastes different... better. This current administration in the has a lot to undo while trying to promote something better. That is a big hill to climb. That hill is worth climbing though. If we keep on the track we are on, we will have students who have spent their years at UNT with a winning program. Then you will be surprised at all the alumni coming out of the woodwork. Remember when Baylor went on their run a few years ago? No alumni would claim their allegiance to that team... a few winning seasons and it was sic em bears all over the place. We can get there, and I think the juice is worth the squeeze. GMG!
  6. So let's recap here

    Man... I love the offseason. Its that time of year where we bring up the old guard and point fingers. From the OP... I think its awesome where we are right now. I am hopeful that football turns a corner this year. My wish list for FB: - Beat SMU - Win the West - Win our bowl game
  7. Yes... happy to hear this. Two of the the biggest needs we have going into next year
  8. Is tonight's game the biggest ever ?

    I am with most of you... winning your conference is the goal. HOWEVER, winning this POSTSEASON tourney, will be a huge win for our program. One of the biggest wins. Lets not enjoy this and not poo poo on the fun. The rest of the conference is sitting at home... we are still dancing and it is so much fun! GMG!

    I will be taking off a little early to make it to the game. Its about an hour drive to campus normally for me... I'll punch out 4:15/4:30 GMG!
  10. San Francisco (3/28/18)

    I cannot make it due to some conflicts. Excited to see what the turnout is. If it goes to game 3, I WILL be taking off work early to head to Denton! GMG!!

    I had no idea it was this bad. I worked for a non profit for years and fundraising was a big part of my job. It is disheartening to hear that it is like this. Without a good database to START with, its hard to get traction. I will say, it is all about relationships. It can be done, but you need some names to start with. I do like that WB wants people to know the stats. Its an eye opener. I am interested to see if those numbers improve after a year of good fundraising.
  12. Disappointed at Attendance

    Well said... I had never heard of the CBI before we were in it. If we can get a couple years of postseason tourneys and *cringe*... a new arena, I think we can start seeing better turnout. GMG!

    Listed as a FB. He was a wide receiver when he was here, correct?
  14. We need the trio of Smatresk , SL, and WB together for a few more years. I think this has been a great formula for the success of athletics at UNT. One would hope if Smatresk did hang it up, the BOR would want to hire a prez that makes athletics a priority.

    Wren mentioned the game may not be in the PIT on Twitter. Anyone got any intel??
