  1. It's about time this eye sore goes away! This is very good news! http://www.dentonrc.com/local-news/local-news-headlines/20140918-unt-set-on-buying-sack-save-site.ece

  2. I don't feel bad. Txdot is the one who is taking half the land and devaluing the property. It won't be as functional anymore. We are trying to buy it up without using eminent domain. The value is only going to fall. I also don't feel bad for a business that has continued to decline and has not invested in improving the property conditions in 2 decades. Good riddance.

  3. Indeed! With our quarterback situation and our "above the rest for thousands less"....SACK and SAVE was hitting a little too close to home. Let's spruce up that entrance fast!

  6. I'd guess like four. Four people. Nobody in a dorm room has a place to store groceries. Most fraternity and sorority members have cars -- or people who can take them somewhere (and further, no one wants to put anything inside a fraternity house 'fridge). And I'd guess a very small number of people live off campus without any sort of transportation. So, four. Four people is my guess as to the number of students who will be greatly impacted by the closing of this grocery store.

  7. So what most of you don't know about me is that my friend and I have been supporting a school in northern Thailand for quite some time. These kids are learning English and a trade and would otherwise be pinning a number to their chest on Soi Cowboy in Bangkok. But they don't have clean drinking water all year. We're endeavoring to build them a water tower that will collect the water during rainy season and given them a source of clean water year round. There is no CEO, there is no skimming off the top. 100% of proceeds go to building a water tower for these kids. I'm asking the mean green

  8. I think I read that the university's still aiming to partner with shops in the area surrounding the campus because well, it's just something the campus needs as part of its culture. I'm hoping this means a grocery place near campus because for a lot of students who don't have cars, or for folks who live near campus, a good SnS replacement would be great. Tear the old store down, put up a newer one in its place (or nearby). One of the things that people are forgetting when they argue that the shop is about to lose out to imminent domain or a standard buyout, is that store is RIGHT on I35 and

  9. Except Sack and Save was about to lose most of its parking to the state through eminent domain for the I 35 expansion, making the location not viable for a grocery store, right? Hence property value dropping by half in 2012? And UNT had nothing to do with that. Seems like a win win for the school and the business. They should be thanking UNT for taking an unusable building off their hands.

  10. Breaking down North Texas game vs. the Nicholls Colonels. Includes match-ups, starters, stats, advanced stats, scouting reports and a game plan for victory inside! Check it out: The Breakdown FYI - I'm not gonna lie and say I spent the last 20 hours breaking down 180hrs of game film of Nicholls. This game to me is more about what I want us to do than what Nicholls is going to do. That being said they do have some good athletes and players. I would not be surprised to see them score 2 TD's on our defense. I would be very surprised if we don't hit 200 yards rushing especially if we

  11. Between this (I'm assuming they'll tear it down) and the 35 expansion project consuming the Exxon/McDonalds/IHOP around Avenue D, the entry to campus is going to look MUCH different in the very near future.

  12. I think one under-appreciated aspect of Thompson's game was his ability to take a step or two away from the pass rush and then quickly release the ball. He helped the offensive line minimize their sacks allowed totals and maybe inflated our expectations of them going into this season. Don't get me wrong; our OL is one of the strengths of the team. But, they are far less effective when we are in obvious run/pass downs.

  13. Not nearly as many as you think. And if they don't, the buses run to the local grocery stores. You'd be surprised how many don't buy groceries. Mom and dad will be here this weekend and take them to the store and it will be the Kroger, not that dumpy sack and save.

  14. Agreed. There are far too many people in the UNT/Denton community that are only interested in taking, while never giving or supporting. It's all "how will this help ME", not how will this improve the university or the community. They also only provide disdain and complaints, never solutions or help. They also aren't informed enough to point their criticisms in the proper direction.

  22. You sure? Take a look at the I35 project plans for that area. The proposed boundary (Pink line is proposed Right of Way. Green is existing ROW) is right up against the building. I don't think that can be sustained. Pancho's looks like they may be able to pull it off, but if you saw somewhere else, please link (I certainly wouldn't mind seeing it gone). Taco C is definitely a goner... and that hits home a little because that's where I first met my wife. Also, OGS's favorite motel appears to be affected. http://ftp.dot.state.tx.us/pub/txdot-info/dal/i35e/rfp/row_middle_segment/ih35e

  27. I usually avoid the Pie forum like the plague, but I heard there was a Ukraine thread and I have good friends/ministry partners there that I talk to almost daily. They were in Kiev until a couple of weeks ago but have moved to Lvov. I do also still have contacts in Kiev. Sometimes they are not really forthcoming because they dont want me to worry, but I will try to get an update on the latest and let you all know what I find out. Anyway, thanks, all of you for being concerned about the folks there.

  29. Not really. There is much more to this story, I am willing to bet. How many major league managers do you think cheat on their wives? How many get caught? Hell, I bet there are even divorces over this very thing. I bet those guys went right on managing before and after their divorce. These guys are on the road a lot and are celebrities. Opportunities and temptations are there. Many have given in to these temptations and lost their marriage because of it. Hell, Billy Martin was married 4 times and had a long term mistress during his third marriage, a mistress that became his fourth wife. An

  35. THAT IS MY WHOLE POINT. Republicans don't think Democrats are reasonable. Democrats don't think Republicans are. Whenever anyone tries to be a moderate they are RINOs are DINOs according to you people. You proved my whole freaking point by trying to argue against it. If I were to go to another board I post on making this argument, I'd get a likewise long winded narrative on how liberals always have to compromise and conservatives never do. Neither side ever believes the other side compromises.

  37. Slippery slope there. Suppose he had taken steps to remedy that situation and it had gotten out. Imagine the uproar. So to stay away from taking a side on that issue, we're more prone to point fingers and tell a 19-year-old to keep it in his pants and never, ever make a mistake or give in to the heat of the moment. Our desire is for a good football team. Whether or not that happens, I'll give him credit where credit it due in taking steps to be a responsible father for this child he's brought into the world. I hope he continues on that path. Good lord, I sound like a former "coa

  38. Each RB gets 100yds. Erik Evans gets his 100 on 2 carries of 63 and 37. Dajon throws for 175+ and 3TDs 1INT Arkansas put up 495 rushing yards on Nicholls and only attempted 14 passes. Air Force rushed for 539yds and only attempted 6 passes. So I think it is safe to say we will be able to run the ball at will which should allow Dajon to practice his passing on any given play. Final score 56-13 North Texas

  39. I don't get the building being used as office spaces. Let the dot figure that one out. Get our facelift in the works. Nothing aggravates me more than seeing the inevitable delayed, in any capacity. The campus could be a gem if they started now and the union and entrance completed simultaneously.

  45. I don't think I've said anything anywhere near as firm as what his head coach has said about him. And nothing I said indicates that he was "the first player at UNT" to have issues or to show immaturity. And nothing I said had anything to do with being present for the birth of his child--he needed to be there. But you want to imagine that he has conducted himself with maturity, and is only a victim of "life's issues," when he put himself in a predicament for which he can blame no one else but himself. Judgmental comments about being "too judgmental" just drip with irony.
