  2. I have long and intimate knowledge of the North Korean situation. Current events, translated to English, are, Pardon us, fine brethren to the South and in America, but we seem to be running low on edible roots. Could you see fit to send up another boatload of ramen noodles? That would be swell. Thanks. So maybe, we send up a couple orders of ribs from Metzler's and the Tulsa situation becomes a non issue.

  3. The post says a non-conference HOME game against Tulsa in 2014. Add SMU and four conference games. That makes six.

  5. Quenton Brown ... ugh ... hopefully it's not serious. DT vs Berglund ... I don't mind who wins the job as long as the team does well. However, if DT is the starter and plays like he did this past year he won't be the starter for long. I don't think losing 20 lbs will suddenly make him more accurate or develop good foot work. Vito said we have a home game with Tulsa. He doesn't mention a road game so either it's a one and done or Vito just didn't mention it. Either way it's not a failure by us and it's not some great decision by Tulsa. It's is what it is.

  9. Not really true. When UNT was invoted and accepted, the following teams were members of CUSA: Tulane, ECU, Memphis, Tulsa (just off the top of my head, there may be one forgot). More importantly, the following were NOT members of USA: ODU, UNCC, MTSU, FAU, and now maybe WKU. So, no, we didn't enter the old CUSA, but we also didn't enter the new CUSA. We were 1st choices, along with UTSA and FIU as replacements for SMU, Houst and UCF (?). But the stench of the Belt and a start up caused the others to get the hell out as fast as they could. So now we are left with 9 former me

  12. So the new guy comes in with,arguably, the best north Texas tear ever, wins just over half as many games as the previous did in his last year and you are OK with this? North Texas lost to uah... Monroe twice....lost in the first round of the tourney...and you are cool with this??? Color my ass confused and stupid...I really don't get it. I don't believe for 3 seconds that you would have still supported the coach if he didn't win a single game this year...

  14. Exactly. If I was an opposing coach who was recruiting a kid from around here that wanted to go to UNT, I pull out Clarke and Scottie and anyone else as prime reasons not to go here. I stated it in another thread....it is staggering to me that everyone is not going crazy that a kid who GREW UP A MEAN GREEN FAN, is now transferring from the SCHOOL HE LOVES. Some of you can spin it whatever way you want, but that is nutts.

  18. That site offers no context to the 3100 deaths. How many were homicides? How many were in self defense? How many were suicides? You might as well give us the total death toll for the US and tell us there is some sort of failure to prevent all those deaths.

  20. What is that you don't understand. I know more about basketball than you. I want my head Men's basketball coach to know more than me. Right now he does not. My Sarcasm is my way of dealing with the ignorance that this program is facing from the leadership and the few sheep that follow blindly. Why should I tell you something that the coach should be doing? Still trying to understand you are still supporting Benford. What does he need to do to prove to you that he's not qualified to lead a Division I Men's basketball team?

  24. As large as UNT is, there are a lot of area alumni who are not supporting UNT athletics. That speaks to the "unlocked potential" or the "sleeping giant" labels that have been mentioned in other posts. Obviously, the lack of success has not helped; but alumni response was weak even in winning eras. Whether it is justified or not, the lack of media coverage is probably a major reason more alumni are not involved. The reach of the DRC is limited. The Dallas Morning News is all about SMU, UT and the Big XII, TAMU and the SEC, and TCU. I don't think the Star-Telegram is much different. Even our alu

  25. Keeping Tulsa on the schedule is not the issue. That's smart--we ought to play them fairly regularly. The failure came where the A.D. had us playing return games at Indiana and at Tulsa in the same year.

  30. Andrew, Are you really as clueless as you come across? "No one who comes on boards like this knows anything about the sport they talk about." You are correct. I spent 20 years covering HS, college, international and AAU basketball, I don't know a DAMN thing about basketball. While I may not have played on any of the levels I covered, I guarantee I understand how to break down a 2-1-2 zone and how to stop a hot player on the opposing team better than 95 percent of the the people on this board (I include you in the 95 percent). I would be glad to give you a verbal lesson, with drawings, for a v

  32. Here is an idea. Maybe Dodge, since he is the athletic director, could hire Benford away from us and promote him for the award next year. Hey, I bet many of us would subscribe to the The Picayune and vote for him to.

  33. I don't know why everyone acts so surprised to see these walk ons do so well. A lot of the ones who do good we're all-district performers in high school at 5A football programs. Examples just to name a few include Kaydon Kirby - Flower Mound, Darnell Smith - South Garland, Kenny Buyers - Hurst LD Bell on this current team. I'd take a player from a 5A program who was a multi-year starter and all-district, but maybe a little too slow or undersized over these guys we offer from smaller schools who have better measurables but weren't that productive in high school. A lot of times our walk

  34. I think that we celebrate Kaydon Kirby's accomplishment because it is a success story. He did not have the stars because he did not have the ability as a senior to attract the attention of scouts or recruiting coordinators at FBS universities. To Kaydon's credit he built himself into a FBS player. He added 30 pounds of muscle, eliminated mistakes, practiced and developed a winning attitude. He earned his spurs.

  37. UNT got to McCarron 4 times, got to the LSU QB once. UNT gave up zero sacks to both Alabama and LSU. Obviously these were two different UNT teams but both of those teams run traditional drop back passing games. It is a heck of a lot easier to get to those type of QBs(UNT included) than trying to get to Klien, Aplin, Browning, Keenen or any of the assorted QBs that can get the ball out of the pocket in 1.8 Seconds from the snap. NFL teams cannot do it. That is not playing the numbers game, that is just fact. No , I don't think those teams are worried about trading d-lines. I also kn

  38. The esay way to look at realaignment is; every team that is moving conferences is moving up. The new CUSA is still better than the SBC or even the new SBC. And yes the new Big East is better than the new CUSA, but not by much. However the new BIg East is not better than the old Big East. And before anyone ask is the new CUSA is better than the old CUSA, I'll say it doesn't matter. UNT didn't get invited to the old CUSA, it got invited to the new CUSA.

  40. I used to get very worked up about us being left behind. At this point I can live with winning most of the time regardless of who we play. For the foreseeable future there will be no running with better established programs or developing meaningful rivalries. I just want to see our administration commit to frequent winning, at whatever level they can accomplish that at. First I guess we need to have an administration though. I have to travel several hours to see North Texas play no matter where it is. Now I don't even have the easy Jonesboro trip. I won't do it if there is a high probabilit

  41. The Dodge hire definitely was not the issue. I think the 1-AA exile was. The Dodge issue was a manifestation of the struggle to get back to relevance after the 1-AA days. We're on our way... It's painfully slow. Unfortunately, we're encountering monstrous potholes along the way that cause us to have to pull over and put the donut on until we can get to a discount tire, get a new, better tire, and get back on the road. I believe we won (early 2000's) too early. We weren't ready to sustain that winning culture. I think we're ready now. Get on a streak like we were on in the ea

  42. UNT90 is just passionate about UNT--we sorely lack this from an athletic standpoint from almost every angle possible. He wants us to be the best we can be in an area he cares about. He's a man--over forty--and he likes sports. Most guys do. He sees his other buddies and colleagues that went to colleges across the state and region always talking about their teams performances over the last decade and he asks why is it that I can't ever brag about anything that happened the weekend before. Then he realizes that Rice, SMU, TCU, Texas, Tech, A&M, Baylor, UH, OU, OSU, Tulsa, La Tech, ULL, ULM,

  44. 90 makes coming to this board a whip but in the spirit of Covey - seek first to understand. I understand the frustration he and others have, but unless a rant comes with a solution or suggestion for improvement that he/she can directly contribute to I just can't take their message seriously. 1. 90 rants because he cares - love that 2. just add some suggestions and solutions to the rant for more effectiveness At this point it looks like we should just pack up the tent and call it a Mean Green life. As long as UNT is fielding a team and tailgating is encouraged I will be there wi

  46. Now you are talking. The biggest mistake we ever made was leaving the old Missouri Valley. Hayden Fry apparently thought we could force our way into the SWC by going independent as Houston had done. He was wrong and it cost us our D1 status and almost cost us our football program. That is all behind us now, however, and we just need to win. Victories over Tulsa this year and SMU next year would do wonders for our self esteem. Hey, it is possible.

  48. I apologize then. Misread you there. It's just a safety issue with me and an interesting thing that I have had the very unfortunate time to have witnessed. When it happens to an adult is one thing, but to an innocent child is another that never leaves you.....ever! You know, I have two kick ass recipes for maringue but I'm not a fan of it either and no one at the firehall ever requests it, so I don't bother. I need to try lemon though for sure. Rick

  49. Sorry if this is too much personal revelation, but it seems to fit the topic, especially given the replies thus far. One of the only times my father ever seemed proud of me was the day I decided to start lifting weights and threw out all of my stupid "participation trophies". I was sick of getting beat up every day and didn't feel like I should get anything for just showing up at sports, being terrible, and then having my teammates and every other kid in school beat the crap out of me on the bus and in between classes. So, you might think that this gained me a bit more respect when I stu
