  1. I agree thoroughly with your comment. Never underestimate the ability of a great coach to "coach up" the talent that he inherits. The cupboard was not bare when Coach Mac arrived. A good new strength coach and coordinated position weight program will make a huge difference in linemen not to mention more 6" 4" recruits than I ever remember. The new coaches found our linemen to be mushy and blubbery. They don't want anyone whose waist is broader than his shoulders. Take a relook at some of the departing JUCOS under this standard and you'll see why even though we could get penetration on the rush

  2. After suggesting that JJ may have just make a little mistake in not using his pocketed ships this year, and finding out that to many that is an extreme position. I will now ruthlessly attack a truly defenseless subject and talk women's basketball. The NT and ULM game was another great example of very questionable basketball. I wonder how often a college team has lost to an opponent that shoot something like 23% and who missed 28 straight field goal attempts in the second half. With the game on the line in the final minutes, the NT players vied to see who could hoist up the worst shoot.

  3. I was a bit disappointed that LSU canceled their spring game verse UNT last weekend. The tournament replaced the game with a match verse the University of Houston. Every school except LSU played two games. First, spring matches provide an opportunity for the coaching staff to tinker with formations, evaluate players and get a general feel for the squad heading into next year. Our ladies lost to Rice 1-0 but looked very sharp at times and controlled the match most of the second half. Note: Rice loan goal did not come against our starting defensive back line. In the second match UNT tied

  4. In class 15 hours, study for 45 hours, sleep for 8 hours a night still leaves around 50 hours a week to eat, meet an attractive reason to stay in Denton for a few years, and work on basketball. Two rec games a week isn't goint to take away from study time.

  5. I'd put it even with the coach retention. It's one thing to lose a lot of teenagers and early twentysomethings who may not like you and may not want to continue with their sport. It's another thing entirely when a lot of people who are depending on the program to earn their living decide that one year is about all they care to spend working alongside you.

  8. Good article, but I just don't see this team producing anything less than they already have the last 6 years. There is no question that the loss of Shavod and K. Jackson is going to be huge, but listening to our new DC we're going to use the depth in our secondary to run a scheme filled with creative blitzes. I have no idea how that translates to stopping the run, esp. on short yardage, but HOW CAN WE MANAGE OUR EXPECTATIONS TO BE ANY LOWER THAN THEY ALREADY HAVE BEEN!!!?! Todd Dodge has one of the 20 (not percentile, btw) worst head coaching records of ALL TIME, and we just sat through i

  10. The NCAA has lifted the ridiculous rule requiring gloves to be gray. The rule allegedly started because teams were wearing gloves the same color as their opponents to prevent holding penalties from being called. Now, schools can wear any color they choose. Since I found this story on the Oregon blog, why do I feel like Nike threw some weight around to get this changed especially considering their Pro Combat uni designs. I guess it's one of the few good things Nike has done for uniforms. OregeonLive.com

  11. How does the sunbelt go form having two teams getting 10 to 12 seeds a few years ago to being stuck in a play off game? I know the conference is bad, but we deserve a little more respect then this. Even UTEP at least has what, a 15 seed..... Can we buy some respect here http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology

  12. The conference is getting what it deserves this year. A lot of coaches (Scott and Brady, most egregiously) admitted before the year even started that all they cared about was being ready for conference play. Isiah Thomas is so busy trying to get back to the Knicks that he can't handle Utah Valley. Brady chokes against Savannah State. Even Bob Marlin dropped a game to an NAIA before conference play started. Aside from us... Take a year of OOC mediocrity (and only 2 or 3 instances of that- WKU, FAU, UALR) to outright misery, throw in league parity and bad in-conference losses dragging down t

  14. This is the second to last attendance report. The teams in red have no more games in that category (I highlighted the wrong teams for the away attendance). WKU remains in the lead overall, and it looks like they will probably hold on. They have less than a 300/game advantage over ULL, but it is not as easy to overcome as you may think. ULL moved into second place, and MTSU rounds out the top three. UNT dropped to 4th despite a good crowd of 4000 over the weekend. ULL now leads the SBC conference game attendance with a couple of good crowds over the weekend. They will probably hold on

  17. Usually, it takes at least two years to get a program turned around. Now, SMU was able to do it quicker with June Jones in 2009, as was Dennis Franchione when he went to TCU back in 1997, but generally it takes a while. Cristobal had to build up his program at FIU and now they are bowl winners. I just think that this year's record is kind of a mulligan. Just like Cristobal at FIU, McCarney is having to take over an absolutely beaten down program and its gonna take time just to convince them that they can be winners here. That sounds like we aren't raising expectations, but I do believe that ye

  20. All I have EVER expected from my North Texas teams is that they ALWAYS show up with an ATTITUDE and their "I DIDN'T COME HERE TO LOSE" t-shirts on under their uni's. The win/loss record will take care of itself after that. It is MY EXPECTATION that we never, ever, have a head coach who says to a group of fans "I hope that when Dr. B looks up at the scoreboard tomorrow she remembers how much we're getting paid for this game".

  31. Good thoughts. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm not concerned about the record the next year or two, because recruits may not be as understanding. And if we just feed to ball to Lance, with some good Chico change-ups on offense, we ought to be able to go 4-4 in conference easily.

  32. Well, Devonta Abron, who would have been an absolutely enormous pickup specificallly mentioned football in his decision to commit to Arkansas. I'll try and find the quote and put it here with an edit. Edit: It was posted on this board from another article. "Abron is an example of where one sport at the UA can help the other. The atmosphere at the football game was a definite influence on Abron"

  33. My opinion, and I may be way wrong here... Our team is TIRED. SPENT. GASSED. POOPED. Going into the season, we knew Tramiel was gone and so was Mangrum, but that was OK, because we got Dom back as well as 3 other seniors who are some of the best players ever to suit up in Mean Green. The injured guy was Spencer, and he'll be back before conference starts, right? At least we still have some good depth with Shorter, and hey, Holmen is supposed to step up now! They started off on fire this season. The intensity the team showed in OOC was awesome (minus the only true "slip-up" game

  34. The fact is that you are judged on who signed not who you recruited. As far as one or two ships being open, what difference does that make when you didn't fill either one. To argue that the coaching staff was depending on an obvious academic risk does not strengthen your position. I assume that signing Edwards was also not a gamble based on his 7 pt and 3 rb juco year and obvious health issues. JJ has had a great, by NT standards, four year run and has signed an amazing class for next year that might even get better. I guess those factors override that this year's performance has t

  36. First, I am grateful that I made it up to Denton and back safely. But more than that I am grateful for all the guys who practice hard, study hard and play the game of basketball for UNT. I am proud of each and everyone of you. I know this season hasn't turned out the way any of us were expecting. I am sure no one is more disappointed then you guys. But it's not over. All of you have brought fun and excitement to the Pit along with some very good basketball. You have been to the Big Dance twice in four years and I will never forget that! You are my team and I am very proud of all of

No police administration is ever stupid enough to bring that term into a discussion. A better question would have been if theey, or anyone they work with, had ever been counseled about their lack of traffic enforcement. Ask them if they have the performance board and if the officers with the most tickets aren't the highest rated on the board. I want to make it very clear that I am not talking about traffic officers (motorcyle police). There job is by definition to

  45. Sometimes it actually does hurt people, in a financial sort of way to have someone steal, intellectual property. At the "think tank" our authors actually do quite a bit of work in the area of intellectual property and intellectual property rights. You just might be amazed at what the financial impact is when it comes to "pirating" anything. It is starting to cause some serious damage to some very big industries and has led to lay-offs, reduced incomes, etc. This really is a big issue and one that faces the economies of the entire world.

  46. As to the team being tired.....because of the postponed UALR game....as of last Saturday---their last four games were: Feb. 3, Feb. 12, Feb. 17, and then finally Feb. 19. So they shouldn't be spent.....with that much time off from Feb. 3-19. Anyway, if they can't handle that stretch.....I don't see how they're going to win 4 games in 4 days in Hot Springs.
