  1. Now that we are on the other side of a COVID forced “off week” I think it’s important to turn our attention to SMU discussions. I’ll start. I hope they lose every day in practice this week. I hope they get booed when they order fast food. I hope their underwear feel a bit too tight when they walk around. I hope their cardboard cutout fans act like their real fans...only a few thousand show up, they pay little attention to the game, they leave in the third quarter, and they talk about how “back in the good ol’ days” they were the best cardboard figures

  2. In week two of the season, after a hard fought game against Baylor, the gritty North Texas Eagles traveled down to Dallas, and were obviously cheated out of a great victory. After 39 contests and 98 years the feud will continue this Saturday. (For those who may not know, we are the men with stripes) Go Mean Green!!!

  3. Zach Kittley, the OC from HBU will be available after this next weekend and I would imagine the 100k that our previous QB coach was making will be a step up. West Texas kid, who's family is legendary in the state and world of track and field . . . if it worked out he would stay a long time potentially.

  4. I note SMU's attendance has not improved so much over the years. Also, points to you, SideShow, for calling us the Eagles. Prior to the 1922 season, we were the "Normal Boys". Not that I was around then...

  8. That feels about right. I think we have a great opportunity to take a leap though. These guys have a lot of talent and it seems like they’re out to prove a point.

  9. Say what you want about how bad CUSA is and how things suck, BUT if UNT ever wants respect anywhere it needs to WIN CONSISTENTLY. Having two good seasons under a new head coach , Littrell , and then flopping back to a 4 and 8 season just repeats an age old UNT dilemma. If we don’t win it doesn’t matter what conference we’re in. (Boy what an old repeated NT rant, see you at Appogee)

  11. If we don’t count all the games that were played in leather helmets it’s been more competitive since 2000.....that being said North Texas will never move up the college football pecking order until it beats SMU on a regular basis. Go Mean Green

  13. I don’t know why everyone wants to blame the conference commissioner for everything. It seems to me that the leadership can’t do squat when all (almost all) of your member institutions suck at most sports. When is the last time CUSA had a weekend like what the SBC just pulled off?

  17. His father is from Rule Texas and played football with Art Briles along with my cousins. It is a small world. I think he would be a good choice. If he is half as good at coaching football as his dad is at coaching track he would be an great choice.

  18. It's not about patches on a jersey and never has been. Conference can negotiate some TV exposure and bowl contracts but it all comes down to what you do about it. All the benefits of Big XII membership and Kansas football is still Kansas football, the good years are an aberration. SEC membership means Vandy football is still Vandy football. Last year Vandy lost to a terrible UNLV team that fired their coach for being so bad (who'd have thought hiring a coach straight from high school was a bad idea?). Nebraska cashes larger checks in B1G but they are on the same slide to mediocrity that s

  19. It will come down to three things: 1) Can we get off the field on 3rd down 2) Can we keep them from hitting the home run ball on our secondary 3) Can we run the ball at all

  22. The SBC gets less than or equal to what we get in tv money and most of their schools have smaller athletic budgets than the schools in CUSA. I just think this is all excuses. We can help ourselves by winning, getting ranked, beating P5s. MWC had Boise and TCU lift up their visibility years ago. Now the SBC has App St getting ranked every year. It creates interest for every school that has them scheduled. Interest leads to dollars. We were on a decent trajectory a few years ago to be that school in CUSA, but fell off. FAU was close, but never got ranked. Playing in the worst

  24. I disagree. I’m not completely on board with a merger but everything should be on the table. Because what CUSA is doing right now isn’t working and going status quo is asinine.

  27. @TechBulldog11 any news on this? McClelland tweeted 15 minutes ago about some big scheduling news. Maybe they got a home and home with Vanderbilt and he was part of the deal.

  29. I hope they lose every game they play, in every sport, in the worst possible way, until the end of time. And the same now goes for the Astros. I wish both of them nothing but failure and misery.

  30. Harris County is still the COVID-19 Capital of Texas, per the state of Texas statistics. I won’t be making it down this year. If a TV or streaming announcement isn’t made soon, I may be kicking it old school, huddled around a radio.

  33. Won’t be there, but was there last Christmas when I drove down to see my sister in Pearland. Usually go Highway 6 but I chose I-45 this time but had forgotten downtown H-Town traffic. When I-45 downtown is moving briskly (I swear) you’d think you were inside Denton County’s Texas Motor Speedway taking a lap. Otherwise, as a youth I have such fond memories of the Bayou City. One memory toward the top of the list is that it was at Rice U where I attended my first college football game. It was Jess Neely’s Owls (with the Coach in his famous 2 piece brown suit) vs John Bridgers Baylor Bear

  35. Only twice in last ten meetings has the game been decided by less than 14 points. One of those was 13, the other was 7. Seems this is seldom a close game regardless of who wins.

  37. I have no idea how to feel about either team. From what I saw last week out of both teams, UNT looks more than capable of beating SMU. I think it's going to come down to not giving up the big plays, as we've seemed to do over the past few years against them.

  38. Texas Tech: And completing the Big 12’s deflating weekend was a team that actually won its game but won ugly. Even Texas Tech fans who were starved all offseason to watch football had to ask themselves if enduring a scare against Houston Baptist was really worth it. Though Texas Tech led the entire way and ultimately survived 35-33, the fact that the Red Raiders never got full control of the game has to raise big alarm bells as the conference schedule gets underway. You’re talking about a Houston Baptist program that went 1-10 in 2017 and 2018, improved a bit to 5-7 in 2019 and opened this yea

  42. I like CUSA's future, a lot more than the Belt. Just like I like the AAC's more than CUSA. All three of these conferences would be better off swapping teams a making regional conferences.
