  1. 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.

  2. 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!".

  5. 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.

  6. Thinking he means Andrew Smith's inclusion. I'm perplexed as well. Bowl game winner, sure! His stats for just over 1 season was nothing to write home about though: 2002 (the year he took over for an injured Scott Hall and took us to a NOBowl win): GP COMP ATT PCT YDS YDS/G TD INT QBR 13 91 196 46.4 1206 92.8 7 9 100.7 Honestly, it reeks of Hank Dickenson "leaving his mark". He had probably been lobbying for Smith's inclusion for some time, but RV told him no. The Hall of Fame is not a place for a memorial for a player deceased while on the roster though. Put a statue up, or name something after him. His numbers just don't make sense for inclusion in the HOF.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. I'd like to see more of the bigs up front who blocked for Smith, Hall and Cobbs to make it into the HOF. Brewster is already in. Up next: Nick Zuniga, Matt Turney, J.R. Randal, Jeff Muechow, Randy Gardner and Jonah Bense. These men laid the foundation for our offensive success and deserve recognition. Rick

  16. I expected to see this here on GOMEANGREEN.com so I didn't make a note of his name. I read last week in the DR-C that a recruit from the DFW area, that had committed to North Texas had backed out of his commitment and had included 5 schools he was considering. None of them North Texas. Southern Meth and Tulsa to name 2. According to the article, he was still considering NT but we were not among the 5 schools he said were under consideration. This is to be expected when dealing with children. Tall children, but children none the less. Does anyone have information on this high school student ?

  21. Based on the key assumption that many are ignoring, that NT would be the only area team in the league; it would be too big a risk in my mind. It would cost a lot to join and a lot to leave, and I am not sure that MWC will generate the revenue to offset those costs. Particularly, when the travel cost for 16 sports is factored in. TCU is used by everyone as an example of what a stepping stone MWC can be. I am not sure how much MWC had to do with TCU rise. I think it had a lot more to do with the hiring of Patterson than any membership in MWC. By the way TCU record while in the MWC; was 47-4. If NT could come close to duplicating TCU's record in any league including CUSU; I think the P5 would notice.

  26. 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

  31. 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.

  33. 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

  35. 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

  42. '" Freshman have to live on campus, giving them a chance to become part of the fabric and learn all there is to take advantage of. " I don't know when this was implemented exactly. But, it has been a great thing to help rid us of the commuter school tag. The school has done wonders with getting freshmen involved since I was a student.

  43. You can play anyone at Jerryworld for DFW exposure. That is a non-issue. When the average person thinks of the Big 12. They think football. Ask any big 12 grad that isn't a Jayhawk which is the more important sport and you will get your answer. TCU won their way into the Big 12. Plain and simple.

  44. "From a P5 school" isn't impressive to me at all. Much less of a challenge than he will face at UNT. His involvement with the Memphis turn around, his work at NW Mizzou St, and his starting up the Rogers St. program is far more impressive than his stop at Mizzou. What he will face here may be more difficult than what he faced at Rogers St. The AD here is completely dysfunctional. The Big 12 don't care about basketball. If they did, TCU would still be in the MWC.

  45. Not unless the last AD managed to get SMU to agree to an out clause after what would be a 2 for 1 for UNT. I think we all know that guy wasn't capable of hoodwinking a 5 year old. The out clause is after next year's game, as I believe @Brett Vito reported?
