    Littrell and the crew showed up to my house around noon today. I knew tickets were being delivered, but him doing it shows that they know there is a gulf between the team and fans, and they are willing to do what it takes to get us excited and involved with the Mean Green. Nice work Athletics. Nice work.

    This was an impressive thing to do by Coach Littrell. If he only made five deliveries, that would be impressive. Thanks Coach! Imagine DD doing that during his tenure..."Here's your tickets MFer!".

    I am a second generation lettermen. Our HOF is a joke! I am the first to agree that pre 2000 it was a good ole boy network (change was needed). Since then RV tried to make it accountable, but he and his group failed miserably. They have made it a Hall of Good. To there credit, they tried to make it all inclusive. But in doing this they have passed over many athletes in most sports that are more deserving. I am a firm believer that our HOF should be more on what you did at NT than as a Pro. We have many great athletes that have excelled as collegiate athletes and have not so great professional careers. However, we should still honor them for what they did as a NT athlete. I should never be considered for the HOF, but I have better statistics in my sport than 3 of 5 of this years inductees. I can name 25 athletes from 1960 to today that are more deserving. Until we have strict parameters on how we elect HOF candidates nothing will change. I hope the new AD department will honor those that have made NT great for all these years. If we do this, you might be amazed how much more support your would get from Lettermen.

    Per TexasHoops, Texas top 50 recruit, described as one of the state's best shooters, Tre Thomas has been offered by North Texas. https://twitter.com/TexasHoopsGASO/status/761723247448645632 Plays for Dallas Showtyme coach, the great Ervin 'Big E' Davis. Ervin is the brother of North Texas basketball legend Chris Davis. It could be a battle for this outstanding 2017 recruit. UTEP offered only a couple hours after North Texas.

    After decades of HOF selection and the selection of obvious historical greats, it gets to a point that it becomes less and less of an honor. Add that to NT's relative futility in sports and there are many picks IMO that are far from meriting this honor. These numbers indicate that NT is producing over 3 athletes a year that are worthy of the HOF. I'm not going to get into individual specifics, but frankly there are a lot of athletes in the HOF that I wonder how they got selected. Good players that make substantially contributions but "Hall of Fame." You can't and shouldn't even try to have stated requirements, however I think a deserving athlete should be outstanding compared not only to his team but the competition he or she played against.

    Thanks for the laugh. He could walk in with them tucked in the front of his pants, pull them out, toss them on the table and state, "Here's your tickets MF'er!" Priceless.

    I believe after talking to several recruits the last view years the MWC is viewed as a pretty large step up from c-usa. Jmo

    I looked before posting this. If this has been covered, I beg your pardon. I saw people putting up Mean Green signs around town this morning (Sat). They're green and about 4X4. They look like political signs and I've seen them at the corner of Ft. Worth Drive @ Country Club Road and on W. Oak St just before Carroll Boulevard. I went to the Athletic Depth. In the hopes of having one put up on some property I own. There's another across from Apogee (Bonnie Brea). Whoever came up with this did a fantastic job. I hope to see them all over town. I'd post a picture but I don't know how. GO MEAN GREEN

    You are absolutely right, hanging two woman's jerseys almost before their eligibility was up was purely political. No doubt, Mitchell deserves the honor, but this was done in the manner that reeked of political correctness. No way, Rosalyn Reades should be so honored before literally scores of men basketball players and a few women players such as Clara Campbell. I think her inclusion in the HOF is appropriate but she is not close to be deserving of representing half of the jerseys retired in the Super Pit. It is actually an insult to Lyons, not to be honored as well as men's basketball which has existed over 50 years longer than NT WBB. If I was making the decision, based on players I have watched there would be three: Kenneth Lyons, Joe Hamilton, and Jalee Mitchell. There are others before my time that should probably join that list such as Bill Menifee, Rubin Russell, John Savage and Jim Mudd. Hopefully the new AD will review this situation at some point, and right the wrong that currently exist.

    Keith Chapmen, one of the two greatest kickers in our history should be in the HOF. And our greatest men's basketball player of all time,... Kenny Lyons should have his jersey number retired and hanging with Jalie's in the Super Pit. Here is the list of college basketball's 2,000 point/1,000 rebound club. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NCAA_Division_I_men's_basketball_players_with_2,000_points_and_1,000_rebounds It contains the greatest names in college basketball history. And our own Kenny Lyons is right there among them all. Yet his jersey has yet to be retired after 33 years by his own program. Its past time to get this done. Rick

    Great point, there are several HOF players there purely because of their pro careers. Brian Waters is a prime example, a great pro player; but someone that would never have been considered based on his college career. Hopefully they will wise up and cut down the number of inductees and curtail some of the politics and try to only reward only those that were truly exceptional. Not every QB on a winning team deserves HOF honors nor should picks be made on careers outside of NT or other factors not related to extraordinary play while at NT. Numbers of inductees should significantly be reduced, elevating the honor. Induction doesn't have to occur every year and having one or two at a time would enhance the honor. As an aside I would set a time limit before someone would be a candidate for inclusion. That takes some of the emotion out of the selection and I believe would mean more to the honorees.

    Congrats to Dallas Keuchel, with an 0-3 record and a 7.91 ERA vs Texas this season...(5-7 lifetime vs Texas in 18 games),...finally shows up tonight getting his 3rd win of the year allowing just 3 hits in a 5-0 complete game shutout. This was the first shutout by an individual of the Rangers of the season. Back to a 5 1/2 game lead. Rick

    Frankly, the C-USA that we are in is quite clearly not the conference that was originally pitched to UNT. The Sunbelt was an unrespected league of last resort, and now C-USA has taken on that same role. Everyone is looking to get out and move up. If we don't get out early, we'll be there forever. MWC isn't a perfect solution, but at least there's some nationally known teams and a bit better recognition. Both are critical for alumni support, and more importantly, for recruiting.

    Under any criteria, UNT kicks UTSA's ass. So don't compare a start up to a 100 year football playing university with a beautiful football stadium and its own (kinda) 8000 seat basketball arena.

    You really think if he made a Conference championship regular season run, followed by a CUSA Tournament Title, Followed by the 4th EVER appearance in UNT history that he should be fired? I am NOT excusing the piss poor product he produced for 4 years, following the Taj Mahal of Mid Majors JJ created before LSU came and scooped him up. However, to say that making a run in the tournament unless its Sweet 16 deserves to be fired for would be on the crazy side. Seeing as how we have never won a single tournament game. Granted, in 2007 we lost by 15 to a Memphis squad who didn't lose until the Elite 8.

    My guess is that the hire is waiting on WB. I think that a hire was delayed until we had an AD in place. If WB is smart, and I think he is, we may see this job filed by someone who could take over mid season.

    I didn't compare at all, in fact you did the comparison with the facilities and longevity post- I was responding to your post pointing out the criteria/logic you used was dubious at best and obviously flawed by the Texas State example (no reply, eh chief?). I offered no comparison or evaluation of either school. Why the vitriol with the post? The last post you posted also isn't factually correct. Regardless of extenuating circumstances, on the field head to head is a universally recognized measure of success, since your calling me out and making it personal. Now that is a comparison as I proposed an examination of both programs against each other to produce a judgment of value. You don't have to agree with me, but you also don't have to be condesending either. I'm not an idiot and I'm not a grade school child your going to intimidate. Regarding basketball, I don't fully understand the 'kinda' comment on the UNT facilities. I'm trying to get up to speed with the football and the only thing I can gleen is the fan base is unhappy about the basketball coach.

    It funny that you mention the Houston game which did move the needle and got Apogee it's biggest crowd ever. That 2011 Houston team was coming off a 5-7 season in CUSA that isn't going to excite anyone. Kansas State is was in the middle of 7-6 season at the time they came to Fouts and UNT was about to fire Todd Dodge for poor team performance, do those sound like must see events for your average college football fan? Bring Houston or Kansas State into Apogee for a game while we are in the middle of successful run and you will get a sellout or dam near a sellout. A late season match up between a bowl eligible UNT and bowl eligible SMU could get a sellout also. The scheduling has been awful and whenever we do have attractive match up at home we are in the middle of a losing stretch or coming off a losing season.

    If longevity, post season wins and campus stadium are the criteria for football, Texas State would be the champion of the three schools SWT, UNT, UTSA. There needs to be better criteria.
