    Dude Perfect at the Super Pit

    Tyler Toney's (he's the one with the full beard) dad is a friend of mine and a fellow North Texas alum. Unfortunately Tyler did not follow his dad to UNT but went to A&M instead as did the rest of the Dude Perfect crew (I believe) and where they started their DP business. Several years ago I asked how many tries it takes before they make one of their shots. The answer was that if they didn't make it in the first 10-15 attempts they moved on to a different shot. Not sure if that's still the case, but that's the answer I recall. One of their first videos had Tyler making a shot from way up in the Aggie football stadium to a hoop setup on the field....crazy.

    So proud of this team. What a ride. We're going to need a bigger trophy case.

    Good thing this is a best of 3.
  5. Close games come down to the charity stripe. You were probably looking for a missing player/position, but I think our missing piece is being a much better free throw shooting team. That's going to be the difference of putting games away or letting our opponents turn a win into a nail-biter.

    Congrats Coach and Team....enjoy this and keep grinding. Take us on a post-season ride with you. Go Mean Green.
  7. You still need the kick-off play in order to attempt an onside kick.
  8. Regardless of the outcome, it seems like placing a decision like this in the hands of current students is the wrong way to go about this. What is the genesis of this anyway? Is it a Texas state law or up to the school? Let's think about this for a second. Senior with only a semester or two to go... the fee doesn't really affect them so they may say WTH, I had a good time here and liked going to games, I'll vote yes. Or maybe it's just the opposite and they vote no. Graduate students...most people care (about athletics anyway if they care at all) about were they got their undergraduate degree. They may not vote at all, but they probably don't have a strong affinity to UNT. Would most likely vote no to save some bucks. And finally, let's face it not everyone that starts at UNT finishes here (or finishes at all). They may only be here a semester or two never to return and yet they have a say in something that will potentially chart the direction of a major component of the University for decades to come.
  9. Do we ever get to find out what the complaint is and who submitted it?

    National championship games

    This is what the playoff needs to be. Win your conference and get a chance at the national championship. Either 11 + 5 (so Alabama can always get in when they don’t win the SEC) or 11 + 1 (so Alabama can always get in when they don’t win the SEC). The 11 + 1 would mean “first round byes” for the top four seeded teams. I just think winning your conference should result in a bigger reward - a chance, just asking for a chance - at a national Championship, than some spare bowl game. Let those magical seasons that happen every once in a while play out on the field.
  11. No one really knows why UTSA fans do anything they do.

    English may not be the Savior!

    So what metric(s) do you propose using to make such a determination next year?

    Bad day for athletics fundraising

    Does anyone really believe that the federal government should be in the business of subsidizing luxury boxes or preferred seat licenses for college athletics? The previous setup was done to exploit previous wording of the tax code. It's not like it's some sort of natural law or it's been that way from the beginning of time. The U.S. tax code is the most convoluted, inane creation in the history of the human race. Give it some time and people will figure out a way to rework the various programs so they comply with the new statute.

    MEAN GREEN CLUB TAX INFO

    Or just sever the link between Mean Green Club donations and season ticket purchases. If you want season tickets, buy season tickets. Don't make people "donate" to the Mean Green Club. If you want to make a charitable donation to UNT athletics (Mean Green Club), make a donation, but don't tie it to season ticket purchases.
