    I think everyone knows he can’t win a Heisman no matter what. But this puts him out there to more mainstream fans and perhaps aids his chances at other awards (O’Brien perhaps) and the NFL draft. It also promotes the NT Mean Green brand, which is always a good thing.

    We are absolutely cursed at DT it seems. How many recruits/ players have we lost at DT over the last 7 or so years? It’s like the football gods decided that Booger and Mean Joe exceeded our quota and now we must forever struggle.

    Not directed at you, but none of this downplays freaking D-Day. Everyone knows it was a pivotal moment in a brutal war where the good guys sacrificed so much and won out. America is freaking great, but you know what, Mason Fine is great, too! Maybe not America great, but still great. Also my sister's birthday is 6/6. We just yell at her NO PRESENTS FOR YOU JERK BECAUSE IT DOWNPLAYS HOW MUCH SACRIFICE THIS COUNTRY HAS GIVEN UP. Misplaced, misguided, and sanctimonious. Of effing course we should be commemorating American sacrifices that happened on that specific day, but those exact sacrifices have allowed the rest of the world to keep going and we all appreciate it. Not to mention there were pivotal battles over different continents happening on different dates and different wars.

    Overall, I’d say the turnout was ok. Unfortunately, it didn’t look as good as Houston’s. I met some alums that aren’t really involved and tried encouraging them to come around more. I hope the AD continue to work on getting more engagement is Austin and doesn’t abandon this stop in the future. My family had a great time and it’s always great getting some face time with the staff and coaches. On a more football note, I had a one-on-one conversation with Littrell and he was very positive about this upcoming season. He’s going to be more involved in the offense and doing things his way, like his UNC days. He said good things about Aune and Bean as Fine backups and eventual replacements. He doesn’t think the offense will skip a beat from last season. Defense sounded more of a question mark but he was excited about some of the younger players. He doesn’t shy away from the fact that this is an area that is more of an unknown. It really does seem like Littrell genuinely enjoy being here, but I really hope we can continue to build up our facilities and fan base to make him want to stay.

    If spacing was such a problem why wouldn't coaches just tell their guys to take a couple steps off the line?

    I suspect that most on this board are at least two generations removed from WWII. Mr father graduated from high school in 1941, enlisted in the army and following his stateside training was shipped off with the Fifth Army to participate in the Italian campaign as a mortar gunner. About a year and a half later, he returned from the front with injuries which plagued him the rest of his life. I thought about him a lot on June 6th. As I read this debate, I am trying to think what he would have to say about all of this. My guess is that he would have preferred another day be chosen for this very special announcement. I realize the significance of 6/6 but this was also the 75th anniversary of D-Day and also most certainly the last time any of the participants will be alive for a major commemoration. None of this downplays the significance of Mason Fine's accomplishments. He is by all accounts a very special young man and I suspect that if his service was really needed in the military, he would be among the first to volunteer.

    Initial comments: * This author compares "The Joe" in Ruston to Apogee. Lost me right there. Why does the side of the stadium in the picture of "The Joe" look like the top section needs to be aligned with the lower section? Why would they build it that way. Again, the comparison to Apogee is ridiculous. * #3 being WKU, where most of the seats are on one side of the stadium, is way too high. * I have never been to MUTS, but I have always that their stadium looked good on television. I don't like that it is an erector set like Central Florida. * Charlotte's stadium is just so small. Looks like a high school or lower level college program's. * Alamodome: Is this guy for real? Lost me with this quote: "the surrounding area for parking and tailgating is top-notch." To say that and criticize Apogee is laughable. * FAU: Have always thought it looked pretty good on television. Not a fan of the erector sets. * Southern Miss: #9 is way, way too low for "The Rock." * FIU: Embarrassing. * UTEP: The Sun Bowl is a great stadium. Way too low on the list although the fans have been terrible lately. *Rice: I love older stadiums, but this is just way, way to big for Rice. *Legion Field: Great history in a terrible location with little done to maintain it through the years.

    I like the gumption of the AD. he can show that we can support a Heisman candidate. i believe if mason has a record breaking year, he will not win because the voters will discredit the conference he is playing in. on the same not if he has a record breaking year, maybe we will win the conference and a bowl game. i will be happy with that.

    Warning - all Over the board here: 1. When I hear 6.6 I always think, the antichrist was born this morning at 6am. I watched a lot of horror movies as a kid and Damien and the Omen’s series was one of my favorites. 2. There is only one D Day and the ceremonies this morning brought tears to my eyes. So powerful and I will try to stand at Freedoms Alter one day. 3. Very cool we have a some awesome publicity coming our way with Mason’s website launch. I feel a special season in Denton ahead. I am excited to believe in it, watch it, and live it with my family and friends. 4. How about some College Gameday pub! Remember a few years back when tcu was hot they sang them in the intro every Saturday morning. With a cool name, Heisman hopeful, let’s get Game Day to work us into the promo. They could do a lot with the name Mean Green and for several reasons we will be a Team to watch this fall! Lastly, none of this happens without our courageous heroes at Normandy. There are moments like this where you reflect and question your own will, purpose, courage and strength. Grateful to be Free. God bless the USA!

    I don't think that is the issue here. You are right. It is a day to remember all of those who lost their lives 75 years ago on that beach. However, I don't know this is the place to be telling people no, they can't get excited about Fine for Heisman or the launch of this website bc if falls on the same day as D Day. Nothing but love for my fellow Mean Green here... just hoped you would understand the reactions you are getting are not bc people don't respect themselves or anything else. GMG

    No, today is a day of remembrance and to honor the sacrifice boys Mason’s age and younger paid during the “launch” on the beaches of Normandy France in order to start the rescue of the world from pure evil. Rick

    Wish we would’ve connected. I will say, I think the rain played a part in the low attendance for sure. There were a few people from the steering committee but definitely saw some new people too. talked with Jared Moseley, seems they’ll continue to do austin- apparently San Antonio’s was terrible a few years ago. Hope to see you at the round rock express game next month.

    From a purely NCAA perspective, these two situations are polar opposites. While Penn State was awful, their indiscretions had no bearing or benefit to the product on the field. Baylor on the other hand was done to keep kids on the field making their indiscretions directly related to the product on the field. It would seem to me the NCAA would be much more with in their rights to sanction Baylor over Penn State.

    Even though I hope you are right, I don't see McCasland changing his basic offense. That offense is based on a point guard and a big plus three wing players. Geu could play a wing, but he is going to have some strong competition for that position. I think Gibson starts, but even if he does not; he will get starter minutes.

    Shout out to @UNTLifer for putting this out. I have confirmed Rs Freshman DT Derrick Shaw has left the team due to personal reasons.

    Losing Shaw is a blow, but I expect the fact that LeBlanc beat out Shaw has something to do with his departure. As long as Novil and LeBlanc keep coming on, we ought to be okay at NT for the next couple of years. But we absolutely need to get at least one true hit at NT in this next class.

    I’m not saying anyone cannot get excited about Fine for Heisman, nor am I criticizing the AD’s efforts to promote it. It’s them using today along with the word “launch” to do it. There’s only ONE launch to be recognized on June 6th and it isn’t Fine for Heisman. I wouldn’t even mention it if not for the fact that it’s a pattern they have of using important days of remembrance to instead push something for NT. Everyone else may not give a rat’s ass about such things...but I do. Rick

    THIS Clearly the change was expedited after RJ Hampton's media parade proclaiming Australia's NBL as a better vehicle to prepare him for the NBA. Whether this sways kids to take the NCAA route to the NBA rather than alternatives is of little concern to me. Ultimately, though, this should make the game more visually appealing to casual viewers with the extra spacing. Also, it may I would think the change would make defensive length on the wings more valuable since there's now more ground to cover when closing out on three point shooters. Also, hopefully having to update the line will cause FIU to rethink their awful beach themed court

    had Mason Fine been at Normandy, the whole thing would've been over in 20 minutes. Hitler would've ran straight to the bunker after and that five year old who died on August 6, 1945 in Hiroshima would've gone on to cure cancer by the mid-70s, as was his destiny. face it, Rick, we're just churning out better men now a days and Mason Fine is chief (ha) among them.
