  2. I had a meeting today with a client's son who is the head football coach at a local high school in Frisco, so we got to talking about football and colleges that recruit their players. He mentioned that the school's QB got offered a full scholarship a couple of years ago after his freshman year to Clemson--a guy you may have heard of, Chad Morris was the OC at Clemson back then. For obvious reasons, an SMU offer is now being looked at. So that led me to ask him about UNT and Coach Mac. The dad said something really good, but also vey telling--he said, the UNT coaches are visible and they are ve

  4. My wife is an Ohio State alum along with most of her family. I try my best to be a fan for her sake but frankly it's like rooting for the Death Star. So I put on a good face but secretly I hate them.

  5. For college? No. I went to UNT, so that's what I support. I cannot wrap my head around being a fan of multiple universities unless you went to multiple universities.

  6. I only cheer for the Mean Green. Anytime a G5 plays a P5 I do pull for the G5 school to win, unless that G5 is SMU, in which case I hope that they lose by 70.

  11. Always liked Georgia and Michign growing up. My love of the constant ball kicks that are UNT sports have really pretty much ruined all other college sports for me though.... It just makes me angry seeing others not always suck.

  14. Very good news. Hopefully he's our team's guy. I hope he has an o-line too. On a side note, I don't know if Mac thinks a lot before he speaks. Speaking about how behind a player is instead of expecting great things out of him is not a great way to motivate. It gives the appearance of playing favorites and at the end of the day its bad leadership. Publicly he should have spoke about how talented he is, what a great recruit he is, the great news of his eligibility and privately he should have spoken to the player about expectations and goals. That's just me though...

  15. ​People have different priorities in life and using a vacation day to go to a football game may not be a high one for some. Just because it is something that you want to do doesn't mean you should judge others for felling differently. We should not be in the habit of shaming other fans for making those kinds of choices, we need every fan we can get.

  16. Just wanted to say hello. Thank you for the recruitment. It's an honor. My dad is 6'10 and played in the NFL and CFL. I hope to see the Apogee soon. I've got a few years to go but I'm growing and getting faster and stronger. I am excited to be considered by maxpreps and rivals.

  23. ​You could also flip that around and say that he is using it to motivate DS by reminding him of how he put himself behind by failing to take care of business in the classroom, and that he will have to work overtime to catch up. Part of leadership is to put your key people under a little stress and see if they focus, or fold.

  25. I'll root for most G5 teams, except $mut. I do like to see the American Airlines Conference fail though. I root for TCU because my mom is an alumni, but I wouldn't cheer for them against NT I root for Marshall because my dad is from the same town, but once again, I would not cheer for them against NT I actually hate $mut, but still have to mention it. I hate Ohio State because they are just like texas college. I think the world would be a better place if tu ceased to exist. OH, and I like pie...and tacos.

  26. I see little comparison between the two athletes's situation. One was a star softball player and the other a potential QB for the Green. I see the softball situation just the opposite from Vito, it is a lot muddier. Athletes seek greener pastures all the time on their own or urged/forced by their coach. Williams was not going to play much and he is gone, happens everywhere. The softball situation is a lot different, Schoblocher was the star of the team and would have been no doubt the featured player her senior year. She is also at this point not transferring, she is just not going t

  27. Unbelievable, a lot of you chastise a player for opting to go somewhere else and at the same time continually knock Benford and the program. I don't see how you can think both, partially when he is apparently going to a school much higher on the bb food chain. My view is I doubt he would have made much difference at NT anyway. Most of the touted transfer players Benford has pulled in have been mediocre at best and the centers have been much worse than that. I like the guy they just signed as much as Kouassi.

  28. Followed Arkansas as a youngster because of my family. I also liked Ohio State way back when Schlitster (sp?) was their QB. Loved watching him but his gambling problems and Woodie Hayes ended all of that. Their recent AD's comments about the G5 schools solidifies my hatred of them. Only follow NT now. Hate SMU because they are SMU. I also hate UT because of all their t-shirt fans that love them yet never took one class there. My hatred also stems from their arrogance towards everyone else and predicting A&M's failure in the SEC. Love how the Aggies have proven them wrong.

  29. P5 root for: Tech (wife is an alum); A&M (dad went to fire school there) G5 root for: none really (I guess maybe Tx State since I live fairly close and they are similarly situated to us) P5 root against: I hate the Longhorns because I live in Austin and these people are delusional about how great they are G5 root against: I HATE all things SMU and hope they lose to every team on their schedule until the end of time AND I wish them gristle and over or undercooked meat at each gameday "boulevard". I also hope that Abercrombie runs out of pink polos for their punk-ass fans to wear and hope th

  30. Im at Louisville so i root for the Cards. I always loved Duke so i guess I root for the Blue Devils as well. outside of that, I am rarely cheering on another team. I have never spent a dime in support of anyone else but UNT though for what it's worth.

  31. ​So, if I'm not able to get that day off, provided my schedule doesn't change with maybe a week's notice, and drive down 6 hours, and then potentially drive 6 hours back to possibly work the next day, is that a weak ass excuse?

Hall of Fame threads begin mid-way through the season. McNulty moves to safety and becomes an absolute destroyer on special teams. everyone on here pretends they always liked the kid and laud him for both his fearless play on the field and his clear team-first, selflessness for moving from quarterback so late in his career. Hall of Fame threads begin after game 8. Connor Means gets legit third team reps and continues to grow in both ab

  36. Just ot make sure no one gets the wrong idea from the post, its just asking who else you like or root for when you aren't watching UNT. Obviously, we gmg posters all root for the alma mater no matter what, even if the university is full of students and alumni who are t-shirt fans of the other P5 giants around here. Just wanted to make sure that was clarified--as was mentioned earlier, the constant ball-kicking that is being a UNT fan is enormously hard sometimes, but they are always going to be ours.

  42. I'm torn on the TCU/A&M super. For me, TCU can go suck rocks, but on the other hand, I really don't need the Aggies prancing around the office. Dallas Baptist put up a great fight. This would've been their second super. The first time is the reason they got that new stadium. They had earned the right to host the super that year, but had no facilities to do so. I've been to supers at LSU. Crazy environment. I mean crazy. And yes, it'll be standing room only. No way ULL gets past them playing at the Box. No way. The state government won't allow it. I had a LOT of fun watching po

Thompson goes down and same true freshman starts over a 3 star 6'4" juco transfer. Goes on to finish the season with 1 TD and 3 INTs. Year 2: Thompson stays healthy so true sophomore redshirts. Year 3: Thompson is a senior and has his best year, we go bowling and redshirt sophomore is relegated to mopup duty. Year 4: Game 1, backs up a 6'5" 2 star juco transfer, juco goes 2/11 for 8yds a

  48. No, I am not taking this time to complain about DD. He is ridiculously horrible at calling plays.. but that isn't what this point is about. The cheerleaders are the worst I have EVER seen. They stand facing the game and only start the "DEFENSE" chant after someone in the crowd gets it going first and then the cheerleaders turn around and join in. The entire 4th quarter was 3rd and 4 type situations. We needed noise. We needed the defense to know we had their back. The cheerleaders only seem to cheer themselves. I am thankful for the cones they handed out before the game. I actually was
