    I happen to at lunch close by TSU and ran into Johnny. As always he took a few minutes to chat about his new gig and North Texas. He definitely follows the program. I still would like to have some of us in Houston take in a TSU game with a happy hour before the game.

    The NT Athletics master plan says 6-7k for capacity. Whether that is the right number or not I think is TBD. It could be. For what it’s worth there is absolutely enough space down there to fix the locker room issues. Those bathrooms could also be renovated to match upstairs. All of that would be WAY cheaper than building an entire new arena. There may be some mechanical and/or structure issues that make the Super Pit as a long term home a problem, but in general, my opinion is that a new arena should be a very low priority.

    DRC: UNT hammered Baylor in 2003 in one of the memorable games in recent program history https://www.dentonrc.com/sports/unt-announces-football-series-with-baylor-tulane/article_dfc0c46d-7769-5ed4-8f65-916e352b62f8.html

    I still want to see what happens to attendance after a couple NCAA bids, especially if one amounts to a S16 appearance, before we assume we know anything about our attendance potential. I know JJ took us to the Big Dance before, I just think with our current culture/administration we are in a much better position to see attendance hikes.

    Watching the replay now. Starting QB for the American team had the US flag version of the SOW right across the front of his helmet.

    Well crap! I'll either be too old or dead to make those games. When you fans head to NOLA to play Tulane, have a shot or two of whiskey in honor of DeepGreen who couldn't make it for some reason.

    How about the Saints second or third to last drive that ended because the refs missed another bad pass interference by the Rams defense. There was also the blow to the head on the interception in OT that wasn't called. Yeah, there are always missed calls on both sides. However, this time there was one obviously bad call that, if made correctly, would have given the Saints a 99% chance of winning. It's not often that one can point to one bad call that cost a team the win.

    So what about the face mask no call in the 4th quarter when Goff scrambled inside the 5 on 2nd down. It would have resulted in a 1st and goal from the 1, but the Rams had to settle for a field goal. That no call on the PI was crap, but those bad calls offset IMO. Everyone seems to be overlooking the facemask.

    I didn’t say it to be right or to be negative. It was based on their play. I haven’t seen enough of the basketball team to make a definitive assessment but just judging off the results we seem to be underperforming.

    What point? Those were bad calls by Payton given the game situation. Should have been a run. Kill the clock. Eat the Rams' 2 timeouts. Saints have had a bad run game all season, but dang just run it in that scenario.

    Rick agree, but losing out because you played poor is one thing. Missing the chance to move on due to an inept (at best) call is a another

    I'm not a Saints fan but I'll be rooting against the Rams in the Super Bowl. They don't deserve to be there.

    According to TeamRankings.com, there is a 75% probability UNT wins on Thursday. The stats below look very favorable for a win, but I hope it's not a close one. My dad told me when I was a kid - liars figure and figures lie. So, we'll see...GMG!

    So that only leaves money games at Texas A&M in 2020, Missouri in 2021, and Wisconsin in 2025. I'm okay with ending all those series. Future home and home with Houston, Cal, Baylor, Tulane, Wyoming, Army, and Texas Tech. I'm glad we are telling people to come to Denton or we are not interested.

    When 2027 rolls around those games against Baylor will probably be Conference games.

    Looks like both Baylor games will be season openers. September 1, 2029 vs. the Bears in Denton should be a packed house!

    I am going! I have a customer right outside of Berkeley so will definitely be having a Friday meeting the day before the game. I recommend staying in Emeryville. Pretty much every hotel chain is represented there and there are some decent restaurant options. Only about 10 min from the campus. My favorite restaurant in the world, Chez Panisse, is in Berkeley as well. If you're into food, get a table.

    For me, none of that seems like obstacles that can’t be overcome relatively easily if there’s a desire to stay in the Super Pit. I think there should be. Others don’t. And that’s totally fine.

    Marshall has a tough stretch coming up going on the road against WKU, LaTech, and USM. So, if we take care of business, we could be at the top of the conference again.

    If you watched the their game that was on after ours, they killed them and didn't allow their runs to amount to much. The same two guards that lit us up keep the birds only losing by 10! We have to bring out our A game.

    Pretty good overview of how Clemson was able to avoid Alabama's strengths and win the game from the outside in. Also talks about the Big 12's influence on Clemson's program, and why that style of football gives Alabama problems. https://www.footballstudyhall.com/2019/1/11/18175447/dabo-swinney-revolutionary-hero-clemson-tigers-alabama-crimson-tide-nick-saban-process-spread

    Revolutionary if you hate 'Bama. But I wonder if this is generally bad for college football if you want equality. The Clemson-'bama rivalry is fueling interest at the top of the CFP, and my guess is it furthers the divide between them and the rest of us.

    The number I've heard has always been around 7,500, not half of the current capacity of the Super Pit. Also, did you know the NT Dancers/Cheerleaders don't have their own locker room? I didn't either - it's the women's restroom which is actually an old locker room. Also, because the Rice coach lost his s##t at the end of the game, the police had the hallway closed because you have to walk past the Visitor locker room to get the men's restroom, which is also an old locker room.

    I understand what you are saying about rankings and seeding matter, but my point is that if you come in as the number 1 seed or number 15 doesn't matter as long as you beat who you are playing that game. If you are number 15 and beat everyone in front of you in the tournament, you can be the NCAA champion. Even if you beat said teams by 1 point each. Football is different because we could beat everyone on our schedule and still will not play for the National Championship because we are not in a P5 conference.

    I've watched the conversation from the sidelines and am really late to the game with an opinion, but building a new arena with half the current 10k seats just to get 5-10 lux suites feels really wrong after being at The Pit last night. The energy was good and it felt fairly filled in around the 100 level seats. I dont think the correct solution is to essentially get rid of the 200 level. For an aging facility, other than the seats that are tight between the armrests, but not at the seat cushion level (very weird, I'm not a big guy by any means and I had to plan my standing... But when sitting it wasn't tight), The Pit felt in good condition.

    Lots of people, but not Lawson. Just go back and watch him in the CBI Tournament. We were and are better without him. He is a talented player, but often that is not all there is to the equation.

    The Saints made my point. 1st and 10 from the 25 with 1:55 to go, and instead of running the ball they Chunk & Duck it for two incompletions, including the horrific no call, and they kick the three leaving the Rams 20 seconds to tie it up,...sending it into OT. Rick
