  1. Well I got an email from ESPN letting me know that the college football season is less than a week away. No, the season already started a-holes. P5 elites gonna P5 elite I guess.

  4. I saw that my logo design from a few years ago popped up on Twitter today. It reminded me that I have be wanting to revisit the design. Someone had mentioned before that they'd prefer the tri-lettering of 'UNT' rather than 'North Texas' spelled out, since it would look more symmetrical. They were right, so I made a version with that change. I also tweaked the helmets a little bit, by cleaning them up, adding some rotation, and making the logos bigger and more like they are on the actual helmets. I guess the Safeway Bowl isn't for another couple of weeks, but I still get pumped about it every y

  6. I have often wondered why so many sportswriters want to see greatness in SMU, even ignoring history (outside of the pre-death penalty years) to do so. I never realized so many of our fans were willing to do the same. They beat Texas State by 30 last year, scoring more than this year and holding TSU to less points than this year. Yet, somehow, when they line up against us they will magically be every bit the team they were last year??? We’re so eager to denigrate our own squad that we’re willing to over-inflate the competition to do so.

  7. What I liked: Our corners were better than anything we ran out there last year. We played several and changed them repeatedly to keep them fresh. The last group of freshmen are not ready. It was obvious last year game 1 that we were in trouble in the secondary. Maybe not so much this year. We also did not show much variety in scheme (probably because we did not have to). I also liked that we seem to have moved a couple of guys to safety that were not playing there last year. Cam and Gibbs both were much better at safety. I think last year we were asking them to play out of position

  8. My god. Between that and the Iron Skillet our trophy case is going to look like a trip to Target. How are the receivers and DB's looking? I predict we go back to the 4-3 and focus on stopping your running game and force your receivers to make plays while we go back to more of a basic Air Raid and try to flood your defensive backfield. Wondering how we are going to match up on the outside.

  9. Quick Question, Norm: if Siggers returns to early-2019 form, would Tre+Adaway be the best 1-2 punch since Patrick-Jamario?

  10. Can someone explain to me the benefits of running a 3-3-5 scheme? My takeaways from this particular defense at UNT is that you must have the right personnel to handle the complexities of it. I know for the most part that having extra men in the secondary have the benefit of disguising coverages and blitz packages but again, the only time that seems to work for us is when we have a skilled and mature secondary (i.e 2018 season). And in our experience, it is definitely not a forgiving system for players that can't measure up to it. My main concern is that the CB position in a 3-3-5 seem to

  11. Not to mention our first TD shouldn't have even happened in the first place, but we got an EXTREMELY GENEROUS spot on that 4th down conversion.

  12. So I rewatched the game and I'm a lot more worried than I initially thought. They missed 3 field goals. If they make those it's a 23-19 game midway through the 3rd. They moved the ball consistently, our corners were beat deep multiple times, our safeties/LBs got beat up the seam multiple times. Bean made some questionable throws that are probably picked against an FBS team. I get they scored two TD's late to make it look more respectable but they were within 2 scores for the majority of the game. To me, that's reason to worry. I have a bad feeling about SMU if we play like we di

  13. Sounds like there was a lot of AD internal incompatibility, particularly after trying to sneak in a transfer accused of violent sexual assault and then attempting to hire Art Briles as OC.

  23. Why not just do like ODU and pass on this season. That would balance the divisions. Go all in or all out.

  25. I watched the first half of y'alls game and would just say I would not worry about your defense yet. They were dinking and dunking all game. Cheap yardage. Why do anything about that? First game against HBU, no need to press and get creative. That brings me to my second point: I am sure you were playing base defense all night. Why show blitzes and schemes against HBU?

  27. Yes Mr. South was that, Marty, albeit he did throw a few bouquets at UNT before the end of the 1’st half In the video. Of course, listening to SWC veteran broadcaster Kern Tipps as teens would bring back fond memories for many of us. I miss the SWC even with us not in it. GMG!

  31. This year provides an awesome opportunity to play true freshmen since everyone gets an extra year of eligibility. Basically a playing redshirt year. Tech has a freshman QB (JD Head) from Pearland that is looking fantastic in practice. We are either going to start Aaron Allen (who was the #2 last year) or the transfer from Abeliene Christian. Personally, I would rather play the true freshman and get him ready for next year.
