    C-USA West Media Day is at 2pm on ESPN3

    Channel 11 had a short story on their six o'clock news. They interviewed coach and three players.

    Know Your Program

    I agree with Rick. Our daughter is friends with Byron Gross and he looks like he could run a few wind sprints and be ready to play again. He is a good man who still represents North Texas really well wherever he goes.

    DRC: Examining UNT's 2018 schedule

    I hate Thursday night games. Families with school aged kids often won't be able to attend. Our daughter and grandson won't be coming. Fans who live away from the DFW area have a hard time getting there for a weekday game with work the next day. I hope we are getting a BUNCH of money to move this game. What I REALLY hope is that this turns out to be one of those things that you hear about that never happens. That would suit me just fine.
  4. Our daughter works with Casey Fitzgerald at Harmon High School (feeder for Lewisville High) and says he is a great guy in addition to being an outstanding teacher/coach.
  5. While looking through some stuff about the game tonight I found a web site that showed it being broadcast on ESPN 3. While that is not my favorite place to watch a game for those who cannot get to Denton tonight it sure beats nothing.

    Those brought back some great memories. Thanks for sharing them.

    Star Telegram Sh*ts All Over UNT

    Most younger folks don't remember it but TCU was once just horrible in athletics - especially football. Dennis Franchione got it turned around before leaving for Alabama and Gary Patterson has kept it going since then. What some of the old time administrators at TCU will tell you is that once they started winning in football the number of kids applying to go to school at TCU went up and the ACT or SAT scores of the applicants went up. People who do not like athletics will tell you that this was just a coincidence but the people who were at TCU at that time strongly disagree. They will tell you that the positive publicity that they got from athletics had a very positive result for the school that continues to this day. The author of this article was probably in diapers when this occurred and has no idea about this type of thing at TCU - or anywhere else for that matter. Too bad..........

    Star Telegram Sh*ts All Over UNT

    The story was on the front page of their Sunday print edition and made the point that only Texas and Texas A and M did not rely on student fees and university funds to finance athletics. It quoted several students who did not seem thrilled that athletics is part of their college expenses. It was pretty slanted and pretty negative towards North Texas and other schools but I really don't think anyone pays any attention to the Star-Telegram these days. It is still available on their web site if you want to read it but it really is a waste of your time in my opinion.

    Who do I call for club seat renewal?

    Try calling John Nitardy. I have dealt with him and found him to be helpful. I do not have a direct number for him but just calling the Athletic office and asking for him by name should get you what you need. If he is not the right person, perhaps he can send you on to the person that is. I enjoy reading your comments. Hang in there........

    1958 NTSC Program Page

    Bob Way is shown in the upper right hand corner of the program. He later coached at North Texas on Rod Rust's staff and stayed to teach in the men's PE department after his coaching days were over. He is a really good guy.

    National championship games

    It was a great game except that the wrong team won. I would love to see someone wipe that smirk off Nick Saban's face but now we will have to wait another year to have that happen.
  12. Our family attended the game. It was really pretty and not terribly cold due to no wind. Watching the Florida State kids play in the snow after the game was worth the price of our tickets.

    Armed Forces Bowl Fun fact

    I really enjoyed watching that game. It was one of the best ones I have seen in a while. I love Army's offense even though most of you don't. I am really sorry that we dropped the series with them. They are a quality opponent.

    Frisco Bowl

    My dad used to say "misery loves company". Maybe that is why I enjoyed seeing SMU get pounded even worse than we had. Their players looked like they really did not want to be there and that was certainly true after the middle of the first quarter. It couldn't happen to a more deserving group.
