    I remember when our participation in the CBI was announced, some questioned if the $40000 paid was money well spent on a lower tier tournament. Thank God the administration invested in this tourney. The extra playing time, practice time, home games with boosted attendance, the return of Duffy, and a chance to win a championship have been invaluable. Not to mention that we can expect boosted attendance next season due to the new winning ways and "fun" style of bball. Without the CBI, we would not have any of this and would have ended the season on a bummer.

    My daughter wanted a pic with everyone. We had the best time. The team and the staff did a fantastic job creating a fun, exciting, and family friendly environment. Dilly Dilly!

    Everyone wants to be a part of the winning. Just goes to show what real winning can do for any program regardless of the state of the program of fan base.

    NCAA Tournament anytime over the CBI. I'd take a NIT Championship over a NCAA appearance though.

    Bunch of whining in here. I have had more contact from the school and AD this year than in any year from the past 20... And probably more than just the last 5 years combined. Quit the pessimism

    Does CBS 11 have a lot of UNT grads working there? I see we get more love from CBS11 than any other channel.

    You mean when Clinton left with a republican congress? ...but the Obama administration tripling the dept gets a pass from you, right? At least I try and hold BOTH sides of the aisle accountable. I'm sick of it from all of them. That's all I'm saying. The GOP ran as conservatives, then acted like Libs. They'll pay for it in November, and they should. Rick

    7 of 8 of those were by George "The Archer" King, who I brought to the Jacksonville State game the other night. He kept saying..."I sure would have loved to have played in an offense like this". Rick

    I think Gonzaga realizes that playing in a better league will help them more down the road when it comes to getting at-large bids. The screw job St. Mary’s has gotten twice as an at-large team has really been eye-opening to just how weak the rest of the WCC is perceived to be. Unless BYU has a decent team, nobody else gets much respect or attention.

    I really hope they can get the ball in Guyton’s hands at least 8-10 times a game

    There will be more reaction from North Texas Spring Game on CBS 11 News at 10pm (Should hit around 10:38pm)

    He isn't ready and is under qualified for that spot. This has shaken the HS coaching ranks.

    Interesting article North Texas is mentioned as well as UTEP, UTSA and Rice. https://mwwire.com/2018/03/19/a-16-team-mountain-west-maybe/

    Noticed converted TE, Jamie King, on the field at LB a lot. Will be interesting to see if he can crack the 2 deep in the Fall.

    No, but I don't think that there are many defenses that can dominate our offense; especially our second team defense. They did seem to improve as the scrimmage wore on but it appears that our offense is so good that many times when the defense was covering they were still able to make the play. Recognition seemed good but one cause for concern was broken tackles. We have some backs and receivers that if you don't wrap up, they'll get additional yardage or even break clear. To me, this defense seems a little quicker and will become even more so this fall when more speed arrives. Also, I'm still waiting to see English and hoping that he'll be both a dominant player and a spiritual leader for the defense this coming season.

    I know it's a small religious school, but read about the school apathy and tell me it doesn't sound like NT. https://sports.yahoo.com/pandemonium-disbelief-loyola-final-four-run-even-loyola-never-dreamt-070608487.html

    Good Lord I love football but it's these stories that make me think this is the greatest post-season in all of sports.

    Our crowd against Jacksonville State (2,800) is actually the third biggest home crowd of the CBI and CIT this year. Grand Canyon had 5,900 (all numbers in this post rounded) for their CBI round of 16 loss to Mercer. Drake has 3,600 for their CIT first round win against Abilene Christian. If we win in SF tomorrow I think we top 4,000 Wednesday.

    Random thought but I wonder if we've ever considered painting the rest of the end zone Kelly green instead of keeping the "natural" green of the turf.

    It's about money. The Zags are bringing it in, the WCC is dividing it up.

    We have shot over 70% from 3, three times. The highest is .818 against Texas State in 2010 (only 11 attempts), followed by .722 against Nichols in 1994 (not sure how many attempts but no more than 12 makes so less than 20 tries based on %), and .714 against Denver in 2011 (7 attempts).

    I disregard ESPN's prediction because they have no clue, haven't research the teams and don't even care enough to cover this tournament on Sports Center.

    When I was in high school, I played against Orlando Smart a couple of times. To this day I think he is probably one of the best basketball players I've seen in real life. I think he set the NCAA record for assist at San Francisco.

    Rico did look thicker. novil put up solid stats. Hope he can have a breakout year. Missed out on Siggers, and RJ Reynolds. They were 2 kids I wanted to watch. Agree on the White, Rico, Guyton Package. I would love to see us get Guyton in motion and run him on drags to help him beat press. I’m still dreaming of them adding Shorter to the White, Rico, Guyton group.

    Part of me is surprised, just because the WCC hasn't seemed to really hold Gonzaga back. They've made four straight Sweet 16s and played in the National Title game last year. However, the MWC is generally a stronger league.

    I'll always take winning over losing. But going into a tournament, you never know what's going to happen.

    I thought Greg White looked good. I'd like to see a set with Guyton, Bussey and White on the field at the same time. Bussey looked bigger/stronger than last year. Novil made some good plays on the d-line as did Siggers at safety.

    It wouldn’t be a North Texas softball game without a little drama involved and there was plenty to go around as the Mean Green topped the Louisiana Tech University in View Full Article

    I lean towards NCAA, but I have some thoughts I think our exposure might be greater if we are a 8-14 seed, rather than a 15-16 seed. The latter is rarely given a second thought because everyone just expects you to get plastered by the 1/2 seeds. So, if we'd be a 15 or 16 I would lean more towards NIT. Totally guessing though and I like this thread.

    For this year, the CBI is perfect as it's allowing the team keep on playing though March. The experience of winning and all that entails should bode well for the future.

    Win the CBI this year. Win CUSA next year, and a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Or, get an invite to the NIT and win a couple of rounds. Need more ammo before we can win the NIT, or win a couple of NCAA Tournament games.

    SLC has the cheating system down pat that assures the top athletes get funneled to them while the UIL looks the other way. He'll do just fine. Rick
