    ...and there are people that would cancel our series with Army tomorrow if they could. I wish we could keep a service academy on our schedule every year, even if it is the same one.

    MGB: UNT has a few areas of concern after its bowl season. The following is a look at them http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2016/12/key-positions-of-concern-for-unt-following-heart-of-dallas-bowl.html/

    I've read Army as the rivalry for UNT. What do you think? I've always felt service academies were a good fit for ooc scheduling.

    17-10 in the third. Great game. They aren't united. That's why there has been no law suit. Hell, just look at the article quoted in this thread. The P5 has used whore money to divide and conquer. Look no further than our last AD, who would have been opposed to this for the fear of losing that whore money he so openly coveted. How did that work out for him and UNT? The P5 is 100% together on ther goals. G5s need to learn from them. Solidify, file the lawsuit, and put the P5 on defense. For the first time in their existence. Also, having ADs and coaches who try to use G5s to hit the P5 jackpot is another reason. It's also another point of systematic competitive disadvantage for a law suit.

    I don't think any G5 school would like this solution. But some are recognizing the futility of trying to compete against a stacked deck with ever rising costs and gigantic loses. This is not just limited to G5's, but there are also an expanding number of P5's that are being squeezed out. I suspect the G5's that would back this proposal are the ones that are running out of options to try to compete at the current FB division level. Instead of attacking the problem with what most is needed, a way to control costs and enhance competition; a retreat to a cheaper alignment is their solution. The NCAA is currently setup for the rich athletic programs and there are not many of them. While there are limits to the number of players and coaches, there is no maximum for salaries and overall budgets. Something that even the Pros try to manage to ensure some level of competitiveness. Out of the 128 fb football programs, my guess is that over an hundred of them would be for rules that increased competitiveness by cutting or limiting costs. These schools have the numbers but not the direction to achieve these goals. AD's obviously, are not going to be the drivers in this kind of change. It is going to have to come from the top.

    Third time you name called in this thread. The argument was well stated in a previous post. You don't like the argument so you become a third grader and name call. We disagree. I think UNT can be MUCH more successful now that your former boss is gone. I want to believe that for the first time in my lifetime, the UNT administration has made athletics as much as a priority as the music department. You want to go back to 1986. This may come as a shock to you, but UNT is just as capable of being ranked #5 in the country as Houston. UNT is just as capable as W. Michigan to go 13-0 and play Wisconsin in the Cotton Bowl. But you would rather relegate UNT to second tier nothingness. And you label me as negative? ??????

    Me too. However, if a program's goal is to fill a 20K stadium it probably doesn't belong in FBS.

    I have watched middle school girls games with more offensive firepower than we have. Doesn't matter what Ernie wants, Benford is gone this year.

    Agreed. Any recognizable out of conference is good in my opinion and Army has as good of a reputation as any unless you go midlevel P5.

    What if I told you the day Seth Littrell was hired that in 2017 we would be coming off a Heart of the Dallas bowl apperance and would 1) Have a Sophomore Defensive Tackle that was a former 247 4 star that held offers from Kansas State, SMU, Arizona State, Arkansas, Houston, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Louisiana Tech, San Diego State, TCU and UCLA 2) Have a Sophomore Wide Receiver that was a former 247 4 star that held offers from Notre Dame, Arizona State, Baylor, Clemson,Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss ,San Diego State, SMU, Stanford, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Wake Forest

    Terrible idea. The group of 5 should be considering a class action anti-trust lawsuit instead of relegating themselves to second tier nothingness forever...

    Do people really buy this stuff off of ebay? Check this out below. C'mon. Make a little effort people! The Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl logo (likely unauthorized) on the back is a nice touch.

    Agreed. How I'd love to see a series with Navy or Air Force also. The service academies really are almost at a disadvantage with recruiting because they of the academic requirements and the service commitment after graduation (5 years min). Your typical very good HS player would likely look at another program first. That's why it's such a testament to Army and Navy when they have a great year. Talked to a couple of Army fans at HOD game. They said Army really likes the series with us because Texas is hotbed of recruiting talent. Since Navy has SMU in the conference, I don't thnk they're going to be as inclined to make additional trips to Texas. Fingers crossed for AF in the future sometime.

    You beat me to it... Karma that North Texas, sitting with a score of 28 points, would kick a field goal to tie the game with 28 seconds left in regulation.

    I'm actually kinda surprised that Liberty hasn't been trying to hire Art, given that they've already shown they don't mind taking a big bite out of that Baylor scandal crap sandwich by hiring McCaw.

    Art Briles is one of the top 5 coaches in college football. So regardless of what happened at Baylor, you know someone's going to be willing to look the other way/give him a second chance.

    No to a JJ return. Good recruiter, bad game day coach. Runs a non-offense similar to what we see from Benford. Zero movement. It was good times while he was here, but you can't go back. Ever.

    I really love that plan, but would settle for us seating Brice in a clockwork orange style chamber and forcing him to watch Shaq footage all offseason... same for Combs but with Rodman highlights.

    That's not what he meant. It's the constant bitching and moaning about EVERYTHING that gets to be an ass whipping. We want the truth, no matter how bad it might be, but don't need the constant sky is falling BS.

    Bad idea. The G5's need to continue to push for a 16 team playoff and work the bowls into it. Rick

    First, huge congratulations to the coaches and team for this great turnaround season. We may have a real program yet while I'm still vertical. I could not attend the game but enjoyed every word on the radio and followed many of the comments on social media. I suspect most people do not know that the West Point band is not made of cadets, rather they are NCO's that audition for the vacancies just like they would for an orchestra. They enter at a higher rank than the usual recruit to allow for their advanced training. Many of them have doctorates, for example. You may enjoy knowing there are a large number of UNT grads in the band. Here is an interesting article from their website about this which really speaks highly of the UNT College of Music. https://westpointband.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/mean-green-to-army-green/
