    You just love you some good ol' UNT, don't you?

    Agh! I get your point but the Willis Library has always been an eyesore. Always looked vaguely soviet to me.

    Not just these parts. A bunch of us girls growing up in the Houston area used to watch World Class Championship Wrestling on Saturday mornings. Or perhaps I should spell the word as Bill used to say it... "Rassling."

    If the question is who was the AD at the time, I think it was Helwig. I base that on remembering the decision was made by a new AD just coming in. Part of the justification to the administration was a new AD should be able to name his own people, and thus "this is the time to make a move." As I understand it, there had been a whisper campaign that Bill had lost it and was making too many error on calling games. The whisper campaign was made to the AD and convinced the AD a change needed to be made. No one talked to Bill, asked him about the mistakes, compared the number of "missed calls" by Bill to any other announcers, none of that. Mercer explains much of what happened in his book which I suggest everyone read. If you are a new leader coming in and want to replace a long time person in your department, you should talk directly to that person, thank them for their years of service, have a party and call them a hero very publicly and announce their retirement. The person being replace might not like it, but when you are being publicly praised and even have some kind of celebration in your honor it's hard to say you were mistreated.

    I had multiple classes with Dave and worked at KNTU while he was there. His voice was as clear and clean back then as it is now. He was always very good, that is calm, clean and accurate. We are lucky someone with experience with multiple NBA, MBL and national broadcast networks has landed in our booth.

    Many of you know that I was born and raised in Denton before attending North Texas. My in-laws now live in Robson Ranch and all of my family is still in Denton County. Well, after 15 years of policing at Dallas PD, and the last two as Chief of the city of Keene, I am returning to my roots. I will be sworn in as the Chief of Police in Argyle on January 2.

    I've gotten tired head reading all of these coaching change posts, etc. Regardless of who coaches the Mean Green in 2020, I want to hear more discussions on our next starting QB. I'm thinking Austin Aune might be the guy who leads the offense this year. Still need some evaluation during the Spring, but I'm high on Aune. Think of the success UAB had with the older players(I know, more than just one) when they reinstated the football program. What better position than a solid, good size, older QB? And his high school numbers are nothing to sneeze at.

    I like seeing the UAB and LaTech games staying at the end of the season schedule. Those are fun, championship-bearing games, depending on how the season is going.

    First 10-win season since ‘84? Highest rated recruit since 247 started rankings? Mega P5 transfer U? You have to wonder if everything old is new again.

    It happens in the NFL all the time. McCarthy, Rivera, Coach Bro, all coming off losing records and fired by their prior employers. At least Seth is still employed. You have to remember that one thing Baylor holds above all else in the post-Briles era is the appearance of running a clean program. Seth gives them that AND the prolific offensive chops that the Big 12 holds dear.

    I’m hoping Aune (pronounced Aune) turns his potential into reality. Bean is fast but he looks very light and I worry about his health over a full season. Time will tell.

    What I like about Aune is his composure. When he is in the pocket he looks so relaxed and un-phased. He has a strong arm as well. Im hoping he gets the nod next year, but all in all....if we’re winning I won’t care who’s in there. #GMG

    Agreed. I'm impartial to him and Bean. I do like that he is older and has maturity and poise. He has also been a professional athlete and knows what it takes to be successful at the next level, even if it was in a different sport.

    Kaedric was clocked at a 4.52 FAT at the rival camp and a 4.63 FAT at the opening regional finals. I've heard he wants to play college ball close to home. Class Valedictorian 5.0 GPA 4.59 (average) 40yds at 5'10 210 500 squat 325 bench 330 Power Clean 39inch vertical not offering him doesnt make sense

    If Baylor wants a G5 coach who would be a good fit there, Skip Holtz should be their guy.

    Always thought this was a somewhat flawed take. He would also be facing more football/B12 talent than what he faced here. I can't get past that 4-8 record. None of this Seth-to-Baylor talk should be taken too seriously. If he's a finalist, somebody hire Seth's agent into our staff to recruit HS kids.

    Is this the annual Seth is leaving thread? He is not going anywhere after this disaster of a season. He had one of the top QBs in the country and we crapped the bed. He will be at UNT in the fall.

    From the article, I would take it that there are a list of potential candidates ahead of Littrell at this point. I would be shocked if he ended up in Waco.

    We're going to let Cobbs be OC and run a combination of the old buick (Dickey) and wildcat (2008 Dolphins) offense. Think about it. We don't have a qb, but do have some talented RBs and WRs. It all makes sense now.

    The basketball version of the coaches radio show starts the season at noon, Monday, January 6 at Rudy's. Dave Barnett announced this on December 3 broadcast and some folks in loge seats confirmed last night.

    Roger was a top 100 recruit with offers from schools like Arizona, Indiana, UCLA, and Michigan State. Simmons had 1 D1 offer from Arkansas State because of Dowling and Mccasland. Nowhere near the same caliber of prospects.

    If we get this to 100 likes, can we flash a GMG.com sticker and get out of any speeding ticket through Argyle? 😀 Congrats Emmitt!

    Hey, congratulations, man. I just retired after a little over 30 years with the City of Dallas (in Geographic Information Systems), and noticed that there were reasons sworn law officers might find reasons to move up by moving on, but you'll know more about that than I. And Argyle seems about as fine a place as any to call home in North Texas nowadays. I did notice going to the UAB game this year that there was a turkey loose in the middle of Hwy 377 in Argyle, eventually making good an escape in that critical Thanksgiving week. It actually had the most elusive moves I saw from any Denton County resident taking the field that day. I hope such is as bad as you find there.

    I hate that he got Benford’d, but definitely Tony Mitchell for me. His freshman season was my freshman year, and that was an amazing student basketball experience watching him dunk on dudes then swat their shot into the stands.

    Peddling religion... your bias here is obviously against Mormonism and not the young man himself. Plus isn't riding a bike a sport? Those backpacks look heavy and Texas gets hot.

    Thanks drex. I fault Helwig for the move since it was his call to make. But he had some real POS pushing the buttons to make it happen, so they're just as much at fault. Rick

    It was Helwig. He was brand new, had just fired Dennis Parker, as well as several other guys in the AD who got run off. That, in and of itself, isn't really all that bad, but the problem was that he hired poorly, too, and was allowed to stick around too long, which hamstrung us with incredibly poor OOC schedules for the two main revenue sports. I never had any problems at all with George Dunham getting the gig, as he loves the university tremendously and was a part of the local sports station that was quickly climbing the ratings, allowing us to still get mentions in DFW sports media, when usually we just go ignored (some thing really never change...) Bill Mercer is legendary in these parts and I think his legacy of tremendous students becoming great voices in sports speaks for itself. And I'm glad to know that George and Bill finally got reconciled to the point where hard feelings are no longer at play.

    He does still have it.. It was great to hear him and the guys talking old times. I believe it was Sloan who was the AD.(might have been Helwig though by then?)...when he was jubbed in the back. Rick

    Mercer was in the broadcast booth for Rangers game in the third inning last night. I didn't get to catch it but was told at age 90 he still has it. Great great man.

    The way Mercer was treated was terrible and it didn't need to be done that way at all.

    Kind of weird but true to form, that they listed about 10 of Mercer's broadcasting jobs and left NT were he had to broadcast longer than anywhere. Also obvious that he continues to omit Dunham as a student when he lists them. Mercer was a treasure that NT should have found a much better way to replace than they did.
