  1. If Eastern Michigan joins them do we take over the number 125 ranking or do we have to stay at 127?

  2. Traveling last night on business and happened to be staying at the same hotel as the men's golf team...Hilton Garden Inn in Texarkana! Nice Mercedes van to travel in with a nice big eagle on it! Took a pic, but can't seem to be able to post it. Saw folks from UTSA and UTEP there also.

  10. I thought I made out like a bandit at the garage sale. Spent $10 on C. Dan Smith's game ball from the 2006 SMU victory. Got a very nice polo. And the big catch for me was Lairamie Lee's black jersey from the Halloween game against Rice in 2013, where he had several stops during the 8 play stand, including the 4th down sack that sealed the win. I've missed Lee's physical style of play the last few seasons.

  12. Loved this statement from the twitter. "Idaho football expected to make unprecedented move from FBS to FCS & Big Sky, sources confirm" I certainly can't think of any other schools that willingly moved one step down from the top classification of college football. Can anyone else?

  14. So exactly how is it good for UNT that Kansas or Iowa State or Colorado can come down to DFW and run these camps and get in with the HS coaches and recruits? Because I don't see one damn thing good about it for us. We should already be talking to kids and HS coaches in East Texas, South Texas, and West Texas.

  15. While there are some college football teams that face tough schedules, there are also teams on the other end of the spectrum. And while an easy schedule doesn’t necessarily guarantee wins, here are 10 teams who statistically should face less pressure in 2016: UTEP ADVERTISING Buzz: If we’re talking easiest schedules in college football, UTEP has to lead the discussion. The Miners face just two teams that were bowl eligible last season (Southern Miss, La. Tech) and one team from a Power 5 conference (Texas). That’s good news for a program that dipped from seven wins in 2014 to five wins in 2015. Toughest games: at Texas (S10), Southern Miss (S24), at Louisiana Tech (O1). t

  17. Speculation. But it really should be fact. Alas... I agree, until otherwise proven, all those players leaving last season is on the coach (particularly given all the rumors surrounding her exit at her last job), after all a big number of them were not graduating so the youth of the team is likely not a given but a problem she created. Because of that I am very reluctant to allow for the youth argument in her favor, to me she basically had to show results immeadately. And missing the tournament when it is at home is a really bad look too.

  20. Well, I don't sit in the Club Level nor do I have a suite. I sit in the stands. I also do not leave during the 3rd quarter. I am not lookjmg for another Jerry World, but a functional stadium that is fan friendly and possesses good sight lines and the amenities to make the visit enjoyable. Apogee beats all of these hands down. Of course, now you add in team performance and the setting where the stadium is located, neither of which improve the facility, to bolster your argument. Let's call this what it is, you are taking the tact of a few other posters and refuse to give credit where credit is due because it has the University of North Texas attached to it.

  22. This is a conference based decision, not something faculty/student driven. They simply can't afford to buy enough homes games like ND and BYU can, and they don't have the service academy cache to sell to alumni like Army can. Without revenue sharing and conference scheduling they would starve to death in FBS. Very sad day for their alumni.

  23. Seems like there was another Buyers catch that made the MGP video. But agree, the one they called out of bounds was a great catch. Wish that ref would have been in Austin in 1988. GMG

  26. New Mexico State should drop down as well. I applaud these schools for facing the music. The NCAA and bigger schools, really, upped the ante by marrying into television marketing. The bigger schools took advantage of it; others were slow to catch on. Some, like Baylor, got lucky by being able to freeload off the Big 12 for a decade before finally finding the right coach...who was willing to recruit the criminal element necessary to keep up with OU and Texas. Boise State caught lightning in a bottle by beating Oklahoma 10 years ago. But, that was long ago and never got them an invite to hang with the cool crowd schools. TCU fought like hell on and off the field to get an Big Boy invite. Gotta admire that. They are the true outlier from the beginning of the shake up that began in 1995/96. Idaho, New Mexico State, Eastern Michigan...at some point, you have to look around and ask yourself whether the millions of dollars the school is kicking in to keep the football program afloat at FBS-level is worth it. It really hasn't been for these schools. Keep the money for academics and quit tilting at the football windmills. No shame in having a competitive FCS program. One will have its QB drafted in the first round this year. Can't blame them for the drop down. If they win more games, it'll be better for their fan bases.

  28. This guy gets it. It was interesting to see North Dakota Fans in Dallas having a good time before their team played for the FCS national championship in Frisco. We may see Idaho fans back in this area sometime in the future, but that's some highly competitive football where they'll be playing.

  29. I feel bad for the Idaho fans out there. I think they are simply a victim of location and population in this new age of FBS football. They are just too far from their only possible FBS option (the Sunbelt), and they haven't generated enough support while playing second fiddle to Boise State for the past decade. I see an ESPN "30 for 30" coming.

  31. You could have made that claim about Fouts. But there is no way there is any FCS stadium close to Apogee. Take a look at what are considered the best FCS stadiums today: App State's Kidd Brewer Montana's Washington-Grizzly NDSU's FargoDome Apogee is miles ahead of them.

  32. Please show me one recent post where I have said how great we will be this fall. Just one. While you are at it, please show me one where I accept us losing? Again, just one. While you are at it, show me a recent one were I have stated that it isn't time for RV to go.

  37. The surprise this year is they started out as well as they did. Horrible CUSA record is what you would expect when all but 4 of last years team left the program. I don't know what happened last year but there were definitely severe problems that may or may not still exist. Anyone who thinks that kind of exodus was not because of the coaching staff, is delusional. I hope this years collapse is due to inexperience and not some type of reoccurrence of whatever happened last year. With RV you never know, but a competent AD would certainly be closely watching this team.

  39. I get that some of you like a big body for a quarterback, so did McCarney and we know how that worked out. My question to you is if Shanbour is too small to ever be anything better than a backup, then why in the wide, wide, world of sports would you give Mason Fine a scholarship to play quarterback when the thickest he'll ever hope to get is Shanbour's size?

  40. Can they rethink the transfer rule? Probably won't since the big school are the ones that are losing players instead of gaining them.

  41. Absolutely. I look at TCU and I look at how completely different they recruit. Patterson sees RBs in a small East Texas HS and can see them becoming an All-American Defensive Lineman. They recruit for defense first, unlike every other program in the state. But that just speaks of Gary Patterson's greatness and TCU's commitment to excellence beyond just having a lot of cash. As for offense, this spread stuff is what the kids and the majority of HS coaches like in Texas, which is why every offense in FBS in Texas runs some form of it. But if you don't have a decent line, as we saw with Dodge, the QBs can get the $hit beat out them and the offense tends to bog down in the red zone because the offense cannot run under the center very effectively (or at all). I'll always believe in building your lines up first, then setting up an offense that maximizes your talent. I'm not a big fan of setting up an offense and then finding pieces to try and fit into it as your top priority, but that may have more to do with the shellackings that we endured in the Dodge years, too. Its why McCarney crashing so hard was so disappointing. I actually thought his specialty of developing linemen would be huge here, especially on defense. But not only did he fail on recruiting, he even failed worse at developing solid line play on both sides of the ball in his last two years here. Add that to the QB situation he chose to stick with and it equaled pure suckage. And now, we start completely over, in a gigantic hole, with a brand new coach running an offense that we watched in 2007-2010 and allowed us to see a grand total of 8 wins and 40 losses.

  42. I like to see those receiving stats. Plenty of passes to go around and I recall seeing some good catches as well. Feels great to go into next season with an offense that may be able to score a few points... For once (Since the magical HOD season). It really was a great catch. So pissed it was out of bounds. I wanted him to get a chance to show everyone what he could do at WR. Either way, I hear he is a great leader.
