  5. The idea that a merger between C-USA and the Sun Belt is inevitable is ridiculous. Schools will cut, and cut some more, before this scenario ever happens. There are too many egos, too many lists, too many rankings, too much prestige (or lack thereof), and too many perceived or real slights that would ever allow this scenario to come about. Not saying the idea of a merger is right or wrong, but we're still a long way from this ever happening.

  6. "I am from Denton, Texas, and I will never let you or anybody else forget that," George said in a 1985 interview. "I am a small-town girl from a small town and a small-town family. If I hadn't come from Denton, I wouldn't be sitting here right now with this great job and my great husband and my beautiful children." Phyllis George

  11. She enrolled in TCU on a scholarship for Miss Texas winners but only for one semester. When she won the Miss America contest she left TCU after a few weeks and never completed any coursework. She never finished her degree as far as I know.

  16. lets say that the virus wasn't as bad as originally thought. the economy shut down, 30+% unemployment, debt rising for both americans and government and it was all an overreaction. are you okay with the overblown safety precautions? are you okay with millions losing their jobs? will it make you change your mind about what you believe now when talking about COVID19 in the future?

  17. every time I read a thread about conference alignment I come away thinking the MWC would be a better fit... also, to me it doesnt seem like the TV deal is worth it... who still has cable TV anyway?? why not allow the NCAA to produce all the sports content through its own app?

  24. If you were paying attention this was part of a conversation about the challenges of restarting college athletics in these times. When you bring people out of the houses and start interacting with people who may or may not have practiced safety then the risk of infection increases. I completely understand we can’t go on forever like this, but the countries that have had more open policies did a better job of containment early. We didn’t unfortunately. We have to increase tests and more importantly contact tracing.

  26. Phyllis George is a legend. Remember her well from NFL Today. Not sure how many folks know how big a deal it was to have a woman on the set of a major sports show. It was a huge deal, and she was truly a trailblazer. Really cool thing about her is she knew her stuff, and held her own on that set. Sorry to hear of her passing.

  27. Phyllis' dad worked for Moore Business Forms, Inc. in Denton for some time. TCU gave a scholarship to the Miss Texas winner and the winner was required to use TCU as their alma mater for press releases, etc. It was a blatantly deceptive move by the Miss Texas Pageant and TCU. Phyllis probably spent very little time at TCU.

  28. I did not know that about Mr. George, but was told by some (and I'm sure it's true) that when I was attending UNT, in the late 1970's, the man at the Library exit was the father of Shirley Cothran, Miss America 1975. I do know that Phyllis George's mother, Louise, worked in what was then the NTSU Art Department during that time. Seems like I remember her mentioning that she had been a model herself at one time. She was quite a strong woman in her own right. One thing about both those Miss America winners, they were from good Denton families, and never seemed to forget where they cam

  29. I am no expert on virology, biodefense, or public health, although I did grad coursework in all at George Mason. I studied under Ken Alibek, who ran the USSR's offense bioweapons program, and many other brilliant scientist and policy experts. The program has moved from the Biology department to under the school of public policy, so the structure has changed to more of a policy focus, but that was my concentration anyway so my grad certificate looked more like the current version than the programs of my colleagues that were in the biology track.

  32. You are correct that people can test negative one day and then positive a day or two later based on their contacts and precautions. The White House is one example. I know we can’t go back in time and do this right the first time, but that is why we have to be more cautious now. The countries that have more open rules now acted earlier, like Sweden and Singapore. But they have also faced challenges including a second wave. Vietnam isn’t the best parallel since it is smaller, less developed, and authoritarian. But this is an example of contact tracing and preventative measures that could

  41. They didn't have a choice? At first, but after succeeding in the WAC, they went to CUSA--when it was actually really good. Then, when the Big East took the CUSA teams that were worth it for their footprint (Louisville, Cincy, USF), TCU jumped ship as soon as CUSA added SMU, Rice, Tulsa, and others, and went to the MWC. Those were choices... And those choices allowed a Texas team to beat the hell out of Western-based teams with a lot of name recognition, leading to them getting into the P5. Other than Utah and Rutgers, TCU was the biggest winner in conference realignment. The raise they go

  42. The same risk liabilities can be applied to just about anything? What if they break their neck getting tackled, What if they trip and ruin a knee at the steps at the Super Pit? What if they get meningitis or staph from dirty showers and die? What if they get run over at the cross walk? What if they get killed driving in from College Station trying to make it on time for August practice? What if because of stress from school and sports especially from that position coach that’s never happy about anything they do....causes them to take their own life?...and on and on and on. Might as
