  1. So I'd been meaning to share this before but hadn't had the time and couldn't really find the right place. As some people know, I'm the rare TAMS kid who stayed at UNT and got my degree. This summer was my 20-yr TAMS Reunion, and, for the first time, UNT hosted an official reunion for us. Now, we're not idiots (TAMS kids, remember?) so it was a pretty obvious money grab... and I applaud it. UNT has long needed to tap into a resource of people who leave UNT and go to places like MIT and CalTech and UC Berkeley. But a lot of those kids also go to places like UT and A&M. One reaso

  7. Obama is not responsible for crazy people flipping out. Neither are any other Republican or Democratic politician. This is why I hate politics. The guy who killed the police officers, we now know, had serious personality issues. Got kicked out of the army. Couldn't hold a real job. Held extreme views. This is something no politician can just "fix." What can be done, but what rubs up against the First Amendment die-hards, is cracking down on hate groups' use of the internet to spread/spew their messages. The balancing act, then, would be, 'how much do we let these ha

  8. Our athletics have recently undergone changes in leadership on their own. Do you believe that they can boost school spirit this fall? Smatresk: I’m also very excited for the new coach and football program. It’s going to be a few years before we see the full potential of the program, but I believe choosing [Seth Littrell] was the right decision. Gosh, I sure should have liked to hear President Smatresk voice a "commitment" and backing for athletic success. And hiring a top athletic director to lead us.

  11. I expected us to be near the bottom since we are coming from a 1-11 record with a new coach and a new quarterback. Prognosticators are not going to dig very deep reviewing one and two win teams. I still believe that this coaching staff is going to be better than advertised and the talent on board is underrated and late signees were done after the preview articles went to press. I believe that Coach Littrell said that the talent level was better than people think and that poor performance last year was more due to lack of motivation and effort. My instinct and optimism tell me that

Listen to their concerns, passions and statements. Some of it may be wrong and you don't have to cut them off with a "well actually" or a similar thought. Let people talk. Don't angrily engage with UNT90 (if you disagree with him) or CBL for a few days. No on

  21. So am I. Because this optimism is based on years of watching a lot of North Texas football, both very good and very bad. I also agree with the logical part of his analysis. That being that no publication is going to dig very deep on a 1-11 team, and unless you've gone to the actual practices, you really don't know what this team's true potential is. And even if you have gone to the spring practices and spring game, the new influx of players (hopefully that also means talent) can change the dynamics very noticeably..........hopefully in the upward direction. Now, it's time for the game day

  24. Could this be the future of ADs? More of a marketing type? I think so! Syracuse hires ESPN's John Wildhack to be its next AD John Wildhack, who has spent 36 years with ESPN, has been hired to be Syracuse's next AD. His last day at ESPN is July 28.

  25. I am pretty sure they did not dump $500 million into anything. That is over half the annual budget for UNT. The real number is around $5 million which is nice but not enough for tier 1.

  28. treason: the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government. Hillary did not do that. She did put classified information at risk. If she had intentionally sent that classified information to unauthorized people that could be prosecuted as treason. She did not do that. Therefore calling what she did (evidence would seem to indicate she did) treason is extreme. Not worthy to be president valid, criminal negligent probably, but treason absolutely not. I hate this new mindset in America: It like when someone you don't like p

  29. Her servers were perfectly legal and many others in government have used a similar set up. The only question of legality is did she use those servers to transmit classified information and know full well that she did. So far what has been proven to be her biggest offense is to be a careless idiot. Gary Johnson for President!

  33. You're right - this is nothing, yet here you are and were from the second the first statement went out last night. At least FFR tried to step back - you're just happy to dance on some warm bodies in your neverending quest to be right and keep pushing your agenda. The idea of turning to GMG in the aftermath of last night versus friends and loved ones is about the saddest possible outcome I can imagine for my life.

  36. I agree with that sentiment. However, I assume he's looking for a place that can win a national championship and prepare him for a possible career in the NFL and not looking for a G5 school simply looking to become bowl eligible. Furthermore, I doubt he'll want to walk into the middle of a complete rebuilding project. At this point, I would focus our attention on righting the ship this season and let the recruiting fall in line thereafter.

  37. Thank you all. It has been a long rough night for all of us in the DPD family. Clearly there is no way to make this "positive" but the outpouring of support means a lot to all of us. Now I'm going to go kiss my wife and children...five of my brothers can't do that anymore.

  38. This. If Littrell gets us to 4 wins this season, he will have done something miraculous. To me, I see one game we will be favored in and that is butt cookman. Maybe we beat SMU, ARMY, UTSA or UTEP, but it's hard to see us winning more than one of them. Seriously, we go 2-10 and double last year's miraculous win total of 1--and it was a miracle--nobody better complain about Littrell being a disappointment. He is literally trying to dig us out from under a gigantic pile of manure left behind by RV, Mac, and Chico.
