    I hope they intend on dressing up that sea of asphalt with trees or something. The only thing worse than a lack of parking is a big ugly multiacre patch of cheap asphalt.

    Passed by the stadium today and they have started on the Mean Green sign on the outside of the IPF. It’s channel signage and will light up at night. They only had one letter up when I passed by. #GMG

    I have a feeling that some of y'all weren't in the student section the first two times that UTSA played at Apogee. If you were, you'd probably better understand why I, and many people I know, do circle that game on the calendar. Polling regular visitors of GMG.com isn't exactly a conclusive sample size for determining who our rival is or is not.

    I am always so amused when people shit on the Dickey years as if they weren’t among the best in the history of THIS program. If I asked a college football historian to point out the high water marks for this program, Dickey’s run gets brought up real damn quick. We aren’t counting Heismans around here, or New Year’s Day bowl appearances. And, outside of Mean Green land, nobody says “Damn, those Hayden Fry years were just the bee’s knees!” We are talking about OUR hall of fame, not USC’s. And, just to be clear, this was a SL thread before it was hijacked into another Dickey revisionist history session.

    I truly hope these people never get hit on by a cute woman at the bar...their wives will be yesterday’s news. Some people just REALLY need validation external to themselves and want to belong to something “trendy”

    I am a California newbie. Flight is booked, flying into San Fran Friday afternoon. Game tickets are bought. I am going with 3 of my recent Alumni buddies, need recommendations on hotels to stay at either in San Fran or close to Berkeley. Where is the main college bar strip for Cal? Top two places to sight see/eat in the Bay because only there until Sunday night.

    I remember the huge Mean Green Eagle on Fouts that faced I-35 for decades. I also remember how sad it was when I saw the dismantled eagle components sticking out of the construction dumpster during renovation. I wish I had at least kept the head for prosperity's sake. Oh wait, I did.

    True. Mississippi State was ranked 16 at the time and we lost the game by only two points 17-15. The only other game we lost that year was to 20th ranked Florida State. The other point to make is that there were 11 games in those days rather than the 12 played today.

    this question of "who is our rival" comes up a lot. No UTSA is not our rival. If a school that's only been around a few year is our rival...that's sad. Rivals have to develop naturally over time. I'll say this....it seems the past few years, our game vs La Tech has had conference implications....that is a recipe for a developing rivalry. This season should be no different

    Some gullible fans on here were goaded into hatred of them based on some of their moronic fans coming on gmg.com and talking nonsensical trash. Then, they happened to beat us in 2013, which was a punch to the gut for a great NT team that was cruising towards a Western Division title that year. THE DRIVE happened to occur against them too. I wouldn't call Rice a "rival" because of THE STAND though. That's it. That's the history between these two teams and our "rivalry". There's nothing else.

    In the last 70 years there have been 3 head football coaches with winning career records at North Texas. Odus Mitchell, Hayden Fry, and Seth Littrell. No way he doesn’t get in.

    NT put DD in the HOF. Standards are definitely not high, when a coach with a soso record and a propensity to criticize his own school is honored. At this point, Littrell has not won a conference championship or bowl game. If he can add those two accolades to his resume, than he is a shoo-in.

    I know he can help when healthy. He's already done it. It would be awesome if he really steps up and wins a starting role at NT this Fall, then we can move Novil over to fill Young's DE role, and still have Hamilton on the other side to make a very scary DL.

    Daingerfield state park is very pretty, especially in fall. But the lake is fantastic for swimming and non-motorized boating too. One of our favorites. Eisenhower SP on Texoma is a good one, particularly if you like climbing. Boulder climbing there is a big thing.

    Telegraph Avenue is the main strip but there are many options right near campus. If you want more upscale, there are restaurants and bars on the Northside of campus in an area called the “Gourmet Ghetto”. Berkeley has world class dining and no shortage of places with endless variety. The two must go places for me are Chez Panisse, the birthplace of the American farm to table movement and one of the most influential restaurants in the US (make a reservation way in advance. I prefer the more casual and a la carte upstairs cafe to the more formal, set menu downstairs restaurant) and Top Dog. Simply, some of the best hot dogs and sausages you’ll ever have. Top Dog is where every student for 50 years has eaten and is iconic. I dream of the place. New York hot dogs leave me hugely unsatisfied.

    First of all, North Texas needs a rivalry. That's how you maintain some semblance of interest in the Football season from year to year. I used to say that I don't really care who our rivalry is with, just as long as we have one, but that's not true.......anymore. If we can continue to develop a rivalry with La Tech, that would be great! It's a manageable day drive down there. It's a very pleasant drive. And the La Tech fans are great! After our last home game there, FFR and I went to the La Tech fans favorite Bar in downtown Ruston, and were treated like real guests.

    It is technically correct that the ten game winning season included a forfeit. However, this was a very close game and certainly could have been swayed by the use of one or more ineligible players. It is not like Miss State steamrolled NT and the only way NT could have won is by forfeit. This was a SEC team, NT played away that was as dirty as they come. As I remember they put Walter Chapman out of two of the games using crack back blocks.

    The thread is about College Game Day, which is a TV show that airs every Saturday morning (8am - 11am Central, I believe) during football season. No one is saying stay for the game instead of showing up at Apogee. The beauty of asking people to go to College Game Day and fly a green Battle Flag or something is that millions of people will see it, and then they can drive back up to Apogee in plenty of time to tailgate before the game starts at 6:30pm.

    https://247sports.com/college/north-texas/Article/Ranking-Conference-USA-football-non-conference-schedules-2019-133895292/ Three games which are against very legitimate teams, but none are close to the Top 25 in the country. CBS has SMU at No. 94 entering the year which is very low to me, but California and Houston are hovering around 60 on par with North Texas. They are three teams who have high upside but can also fall into mediocrity again, so we’ll see how North Texas handles the challenge of a more rigorous non-conference schedule, especially with two on the road.

    A rivalry doesn't necessarily have to work both ways. Just about every team in the B12 considers Texas to be a rival but they only reciprocate to Oklahoma. SMU is a rival since most fans circle that on the calendar each year. UTSA is just another conference team and no more a rival than anyone else. Honestly, we have no real rival that goes both ways.

    It isn’t ideal for sure, but it does get the kids out of the direct sun and shelters from lightning, both of which can help the team stay on the practice field under harsh conditions. At least they are trying I guess.

    If those 10 wins don’t include a bowl win, absolutely not. If yes, maybe. If a conference championship + bowl win, absolutely.

    Cal fan here. While our LB unit is good, our DB’s are elite. Phil Steele ranks our defensive backfield as the 2nd best in the country, behind only LSU’s. Mason Fine should test them. He’s a very good QB. Best of luck to you. I look forward to the game.
