  1. Can I play this game too? On another note I don't know why the DRC didn't make a slideshow of the Spring Game but I do apologize.

  2. The buzz comes from the lack of snaps people have seen him play which adds to the hope that he could develop into something special. At this point fans are willing to latch onto anybody, but Greer or McNulty. I think some of the buzz also stemmed from last years spring game where he showed some good moxy in the pocket. His tools are raw. He gives you rare glimpses of potential. Good size. I honestly believe he has the best escape-ability out of all the QBs. Just has a knack of being able to elude a rush. The ceiling seems higher for Means than Greer or McNulty thats why people are high on him.

  3. Yep...you know, KRAM, the guy who will actually be there to see you play...unlike UNT90 who just talks. You'll never see UNT90, but he'll have plenty of excuses and will be "supporting you from afar". I just know you will feel the love.

  5. Pre-college civil war education for us out on the left coast in a nutshell (from a Christian private school): The north was good, the south was bad, and Abraham Lincoln personally freed the slaves because he was a Christian. OK, enough of that historical footnote. Moving on to important matters like gold discovered at Sutter's Mill.

  9. It could be low when compared with all of FBS, but you have no way to actually know that. I would guess that it is comparable to other teams in our situation, bad season with a lot of options at QB. I don't really see how you can conclude that the opinions of fans is any indication of the situation. I really don't think that a coach should use the opinions of fans to determine the starter at any position.

  10. Why is Demarcus included in this poll?????? Not eligible yet, and we do not know if we will be or ever play a down. and you can prolly count those votes for DW. Until then DW!

  11. Never said he was not a huge loss. And I am not a DT hater, I appreciate what he did. I just will argue that the defense and special teams deserved more credit for our overall record in 2013 than DT did. We were getting top 25 votes because of them, not our offense. Our offense was still average to below average nationally in several categories. Our defense was top 20, top 10 in several categories. BUT, I never expected our passing production to go from fairly average, to what-the-heck-do-you-call-that.

  14. After watching some of the 3rd quarter of the spring game, I am impressed with Shanbour's ability to run the read-option. He really sells it and makes quick accurate passes(or at least one I saw). Chumley looks like an NFL quarterback, if we could just get someone to teach him how to play the position. I think McNulty's passes lack the velocity needed to be effective at the FBS level. I can't think of one other starting qb we've had over the last ten years that I would like McNulty to start over, and that includes Chase Baine. Oh, and I think Means has a good amount of potential. I'd put Williams, Means, Shanbour as my 123 after the limited snaps I saw.

  15. Yep. And the defense didn't alter or adapt to any of the playcalling not to mention that I didn't see a blitz the entire day. **It is extremely difficult to play in the secondary in these types of scrimmages.

  16. The only extra consideration here is his child. If he's skipping out on extra film sessions late at night to go care for his kid, then he's making the right choice; McCarney or any other coach be damned. If he's skipping out on extra film sessions late at night so he can go party/hang out, then carry on.

  17. Officially a remodel per Dr. Smatresk. No way to get approval for new construction through the state. In fact, I mentioned that I thought it was a remodel and Dr. Smatresk replied that indeed it was. Same thing happened at OSU when I was a grad student there...the new Sereteen Performing Arts Center was classified as a remodel as the state would not approve new construction at the time (1970-1972). They tore the old building down to one wall and a bit of foundation and built the new beautiful performing arts center around that standing wall. Quite a remodel, huh? UNT Student Union is the exact same situation. Official remodel. Ha! Do we call that creativeness or gaming the system? Well, we call it whatever it takes to get the job done. The place is absolutely beautiful. Cannot wait to see the finished product.

  18. Call me a conspiracy theorist with a tin foil hat but I see it this way. Consider this my online stroke moment(Dave Barnett migraine moment). Mac is going to make McNulty the starter. Coach Mac has done everything he could to allow his buddy's son leave his mark as a college quarterback(at the only place he had a chance in hell of seeing the field at the D1 level). What other school in FBS history would've put in a true freshman quarterback with ZERO other FBS offers in a goalline set to score the first touchdown in the history of its brand new stadium? Derek Thompson was better than most give him credit for. If he weren't an upperclassman and not quite as good, McNulty would've started the 2012 season. I think Mac knows that Damarcus Smith will not qualify but had to sign a talented qb to make it look like he attempted to improve the qb situation. When Smith doesn't qualify in the fall, Mac will say that he hadn't planned on that and will have to go with the number 1 he trusts in senior Andrew McNulty. Dajon Williams will not rise above #3 on the depth chart during the 2015 season unless injuries require it. With Josh Greer between McNulty and Williams, Mac knows people won't be begging for McNulty to be benched in favor of Greer. The 2016 will be the season to look forward to, McNulty will be gone and I wouldn't be terribly surprised if McCarney follows him after setting his buddy's kid up with the best college legacy he possible could. 2016 without McNulty will allow for a true, unbiased, quarterback competition. Williams will likely win the competition with Means as his backup. We will have offensive production in 2016 as good or better than we did in 2012. We will win conference and go bowling in 2016. We just have to ride out McNulty's senior season. If anyone besides McNulty (and he is healthy) starts the SMU game I will be "head sewn to the carpet" shocked. If it goes the way I expect, I will give up on the 2015 season. Chad Morris is not June Jones. Morris will actually understand the importance of this game to the fans. Jones just didn't care. I don't want to be embarrassed in front of their a-hole fans just because McCarney wants to give his adopted son the title of starting D1 quarterback.

  23. For the Civil War historians out there: Was Sherman following orders? Or was he going a little overboard on his own (didn't he invent the term "Scorched Earth")? I mean, if his job was to demoralize the heck out of the Confederacy, he was wildly successful.

  24. There's some truth in there, but reports from people who have been attending the past two years of spring practice (not just the spring game) have been very favorable toward Connor Means. So while the fact that we haven't had to be disappointed by his play on the field like we have with Greer, Williams, and McNulty factors in, there are also factors quite opposite to "lack of snaps people have seen him play."

  26. I suppose my bent in general is that it seems to always be the wolves in sheep's clothing who run the joint. I don't mean to berate Texas on this, but I was never really cognizant of these things until I moved here. Then they were in my face, all day, every day. Lots and lots of wolves legislating and discriminating with their twisted biblical logic, tossing about their brand of morality, both legal and cultural, all while wearing abominable poly blend suits and sucking down a bunch of unclean craw fish before their almighty Easter celebration of brightly colored plastic eggs. Tends to discredit the whole damn thing for me, including, but not limited to, cherry picked historical episodes of a few black people owning black slaves or a few forcibly interpreted phrases in legal documents from 150 years ago to show mild dissatisfaction with taxation v. representation. My first degree is in history, and I focused mainly on antebellum and post WWI U.S. history, but I tend to remain silent on these debates, because I know I've got my own biases, and I can see the biases of things presented here clear as day. We all want to use history to justify our current views and beliefs. I must admit, however, that I find it clinically interesting to see views of civil war history in the south vs. the hippie laden godless hell from whence I came. It is a very, very different lens.

  27. Probably never see me at a women's game. That is correct. I don't enjoy watching women's bball. More power to those that do. You may see me at one men's home game next year. Maybe more if I'm entertained at the first game I go to. I think the odds of that are slight. Hard to love something that refuses to love itself. You will probably see a lot more of me in 2016. With a new men's head coach in place, I will probably be more curious about the program. But, then again, maybe not.

  37. We have plenty of people to send in signals. There is no need for Mac to require a pissed off player to send in signals that may not even be sent in properly because that player is pissed off. It is just asking for problems. Let him go cool off, regroup, and then come give signals. You must not deal with hot-tempered or emotional people much.

  40. Firstly, I think you mean "flack" - One "catches flack" and then asks to be "cut some slack", but I digress. Protecting AM is nonsense. And I don't think it's so much about knowing the playbook as it is the other things that DW seemingly has failed to do. You can't let a kid dictate what he will or will not do no matter if he is the second coming of Tom Brady. You do that and you quickly risk anarchy within your team. As an example there was a game last season in which DW refused to wear a headset during the second half and send in signals. Refused. I can't imagine any coach rewarding that kind of behavior no matter how good a player is. When coaches talk about maturity etc it's things such as the above that I think they are talking about. And until DW buys in completely Id wager his role is limited.

  42. The dog-piling should continue, but not on Greer. Rather it should be on the coaching staff for continuing to believe he has the tools to be an FBS QB. Greer is obviously a better practice QB than in game QB and the staff rewards him for that. However, when the bullets start flying he just cant hang.

  43. to the bolded part, I assume you mean the Emancipation Proclamation when you talk of enforcement? to the bulk of your post...the causes of the Civil War are numerous and nuanced...trade protectionism among them, but to make the suggestion that slavery was not at the heart of the conflict is simply wrong.

  46. So my question here isn't related to fracking, so much as it is in the eleven years I've lived in Texas one of the defining aspects of the state is that local municipalities are more or less free to govern themselves with very little (compared to other states) state level interaction. This bill seems to really slap that idea in the face.

  48. The discontent from the students is from a very very small %. If only 2200 people (not necessarly students) signed an on-line petition, that tells you how few people are really upset about it. Are these same people going to get bent out of shape when the CEO of the company they work for has a different opinion than them? Are they going to cry when there boss says something they don't like? The real world is NOT going to bend over and cater to these people, I totally don't understand why they think a university will.
