  4. When you talk to people in the drumline community around the world and mention UNT...jaws drop. There are very few groups on campus that consistently represent UNT at such a high standard year in and year out. The members of the drumline work their tails off and put in insane hours to be the best in the world, no excuses. Despite this, you're telling me that because they don't play at football games you aren't interested in the work that they put in, the world-class product they create, or the extraordinary representation they give UNT? That's a shame.

  7. Well, there are 311,800,000 (roughly) Americans. Do the math on your 50 million which I'll capitulate is correct for sake of this discussion, and you've got... 16%. Yup, one percent more than my figure (which was based on 2009 numbers that the healthcare bill was shoved down our throats on) but closer to 15% than the 20% you quote. ...but even at 20%, you're destroying a system that is covering 80% of Americans by installing law that: A. will not actually cover that many more people as we have discovered during the months since the passage (...cause we had to pass it to see what was in

  10. Here are the A-lines competitive shows from PASIC (national drum competition that UNT has owned basically every year since it started): There are tons of videos of different years. It's pretty cool to watch, especially when you consider thus is the gold standard of drum lines EVERY YEAR since they started doing this.

  12. You need tickets to plan for tailgating? Really? Seems lots of folks have already started planning tailgating activities. Maybe you mean near which lot due to your parking situation...that I get, and agree that I would love to have that settled as soon as possible. But, completely disagree that the AD folks have forgotten the fans. In fact, there have been more fan friendly events this season that ever before...and this whole bit of a delay just might be due to the fact that they had to wait on the Apogee Stadium deal to be finalized before they actually printed the tickets (the season ti

  15. Here's where your argument hits a snag. Back when Dickey was our coach, we had a huge conference winning streak, 4 straight bowls, the two previous national rushing champs who received lots of natinal and local pub, and open practices. In 2005, we averaged about 17-18K per home game, which was no different than it had been before. Lance Dunbar is awesome, but his team has been absolutely horrible for a long time. Joe Bob will know him even more when he runs for 200 yards in an opening season win over FIU. If that makes Joe Bob buy a ticket for our big home game against Western Kentucky, th

  17. Yeah, same goes for the 1 o'clock lab band, unless those guys play at a football game they don't exist to me either. /geesh, let it go man. Bottom line. Back in olden times there wasn't things like drum line competitions. Then things changed and the drumline at UNT was so dominant we had too many students wanting to attend our university that we had to eventually make it into it's own performing group. Now they tour the world and help recruit to the UNT college of music.

  27. First off, I think you had a great post. However, I'd like to add a couple of things. And I'm saying this based on my experience as a FW resident for the last 12 years. TCU, while they have slowly and surely risen like Peter North in his prime from their (IMO) self-inflicted purgatory--and kudos to their program and its supporters--they only VERY recently began enjoying more-than-good attendance at their games. And I'm talking about the FWST virtually begging/scolding the FW public to attend Frogs football via Lebreton and Little Ball of Pat Verbeek's Nickname. This has happened con

  41. There isn't a separate drumline that is also part of the marching band. Basically the drumline is a performing group, like the wind ensemble, lab bands, percussion ensemble, orchestra, choir etc. The drumline in the green brigade may and probably does have people that are in both, just as the other groups do, but there isn't any "1st line" missing. It's a little like saying - are the 1 O'Clock trumpet players all going to be there? We need 1st line trumpet players this season. - they might be, if they are in both groups but they are different performing groups.

  42. Hard to compare. By the time Carey came along, we had quite a stockpile of WRs that weren't around when Casey was. Casey had a lot more balls thrown his way, so he had a lot more catches. But Carey averaged 10.9 yards per catch, while Casey averaged 11.1 yards per catch--a statistical wash. And Carey should have had his best years still in front of him. Obviously, Carey will never be considered one of UNT's greats, which Casey definitely was. But Carey certainly had the promise.

  43. I did not dig through the records but I do remember us beating Tech a few times and if I remember correctly we beat them 1997 and then again in 1999 the year before Leach took them over. I don't think we won again after that. So I would not have guessed Tech to be in the top half of the Big XII and I don't remember Tech being regularly in the top 25 but it seems like they were in the top 25 not too long after Leach arrived and stayed there. But that may just be my perception.

  44. Leach's name was on the Nation Stage for a long time and his results are record setting. He took a perennial bad team ranked near the bottom of D1 and took them to number 2 in the nation. At Lubbock of all places. Don't kid yourselves Leach was well known outside of Texas.

That is not the case in some states and Europe.... as for the original comment, he was talking about how cheap beer was there... I just commented why... America especially Texas taxes it a lot and drives up the price so it it is much more expensive here. ...How is that being a liberal..??? I was talking about excessive taxes and drunk drivers??????
