  1. DRC breaking news -- UNT fee vote passes

    I think you are missing my point. I love that our kids get a chance to go on the road and pull off upsets against historic football programs. I just want our kids to have that same chance at Apogee. Body-bag games seem to earn North Texas between $750K and $1M. This vote adds an extra $3.5M. Do we really need to continue the body-bag game philosophy?
  2. DRC breaking news -- UNT fee vote passes

    Does this new influx of cash mean body-bag games will become a thing of the past?
  3. DRC breaking news -- UNT fee vote passes

    Finally! Great day for North Texas.
  4. DRC: Results of UNT fee vote delayed again

    Is anyone on here part of the SGA? If so, there should be a rule that any person or organization that brings a challenge, the SGA deems frivolous at the conclusion of their investigation, should be charged an "frivolous investigation fine" of more then $1,000. I think that would end some of these delay tactics. The challenge should be there for legitimate issues, not as a delay tactic or obstructionist maneuver.
  5. Can North Texas' Line Step Up?

    If he can get to the line and hit free throws, McCasland can use him.
  6. Jeff Wilson headed to NFL Combine

    Wilson played with as much heart as any player in the history of North Texas. Season after season he sacrificed his body on the field, and he kept coming back even stronger. I'm so happy for him. It was a real pleasure having him as my adopted player for the past few seasons. Congratulations Jeffery. You deserve this.
  7. Hope Y'all are ready to open up your wallets!

    Ha! Amanda and I are glad you're family is staying put. We like being by y'all too. We will be renewing our seats as well. I may even add another. I agree, the AD is taking a gamble with this move. I think it could be successful in generating more revenue, but only if our defense improves to a respectable level, we beat SMU, and we return to the C-USA title game. If we didn't finish the season with blow out losses in back to back games, and have serious concerns about our defense, fans might be less skeptical about this move.
  8. Wow

    Many great improvements around the Athletic Center. My only knock, would be the locker room. I still think we could have designed a better looking space. But, having said that, the building certainly looks better these days, and I applaud of AD for his vision and hard work.
  9. DRC: Fire destroys home of UNT player

    Way to step up for a member of our Mean Green family. This university needs more people like you and the others that contributed to helping this young man's family. We are certainly a Mean Green Nation. Happy New Year!
  10. Room for Disagreement

    Ha! Happy New Year to you too, and Go Mean Green!!!
  11. Tech Needs an OC

    Kingsbury will be out of a job after next season. Harrell would be smart to pass on this if offered.
  12. @UTSA (12.30.17)

    Good game. UTSA needs a new arena.
  13. Room for Disagreement

    I can't understand why some on here get so angry about differing opinions. We are not a collection of robots. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and everyone is entitled to agree or disagree. We should be able to do that without name calling or getting ugly with each other. After a season where our Mean Green produced at a level few believed possible, we should be able to have constructive conversations about the direction our program is headed, or at least ignore the opinions we don't embrace. It tiring watching thread after thread get locked. Instead of arguing about a football season that has ended, lets focus on basketball. Both our Men's and Women's teams are doing well. Can't we all focus on supporting them?
  14. I want to believe our defense is going to improve next season. I like that we are targeting defensive Juco players. We need them. My biggest concern is that we all saw our defense was struggling early in the season, and I never saw any real effort from our coaches to address it. All we heard was "We have to get better". All season our DB's were caught out of position, some of our LB's were too slow to get to the outside and make plays, and our DE's were not holding their ground and giving up the edge on sweeps. Also, our three man rush wasn't effective. That is a lot that needs to get better. Personally, If I had to give Ref a grade for his overall handling of our defense, I'd have to give him an "F".
  15. HOD BOWL

    Some may have been wondering how this match-up happened... "Texas Tech and West Virginia were the Big 12’s last schools without a bowl destination. The Mountaineers, at 7-5 to Tech’s 6-6 record, had first choice in selecting between coming to Dallas or the Birmingham Bowl." "The game was supposed to feature a team from the Big 12 and the Big Ten. The Big Ten didn’t meet its bowl obligations. A "backup" agreement was in place for a Pac-12 team to fill the spot, said Brant Ringler, executive director of the game." http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/article187863349.html C-USA never addressed how or why it lost the HOD to the Big10, and certainly never mentioned that the PAC had the back up agreement. It was a terrible game, in front of a terrible crowd, on a terrible day. I hope Mr. Ringler and the rest of the HOD Committee remember the 2017 HOD for a long time.
