  2. With Munoz and Ortiz off this week, it may be a good moment to look at some of NTs other alumni again. First lets stay in the Americas, where -by my count- 3 NT alumni are teeing it up on the PGA Latinoamerica this week (third level of professional golf). That tour had many cancelled events because the VID is still strong in south America. Because of whether only half the players finished their 2nd round on friday. Rubio and Villasana will miss the cut, but Cazaubon is currently tied for 4th. Next lets go to Europe, and there is good news there on the second level of professional golf, the challenge tour. While Rosenmueller who plays regularly on that tour missed the cut. However Kristof Ulnaers is killing it on his first start there: leading the field by 4 shots after two rounds! Lets hope they don't pull a john Rahm on him). or those who wonder: that challenge tour tournament has a total purse of 200k Euros (240k$) He got that start after having so far a great season on the pro golf tour (third level,) where he finished in second last week and is currently 5th on the order of merit (which totals about 10k in winnings). Meanwhile Ian Snyman just keeps playing great on that Big easy tour in south Africa (third level I guess), and has made 4 top 20 results in a row and won a second one of those tournaments. Since that is a small tour I assume that is about 3k in winnings all together for him.

  3. I realize, that most of us know that Munoz and Ortiz are succesful on the PGA tour. However I tried to look up who else is currently out there trying to make a go of it. I Found quite a few from the last few years, but am sure I am missing more. Currently I count at least three alumni who have profiles on the PGA Latinoamerica tour, where Cazaubon is currently 27th on points, Gonzalo Rubio is 55th and Villasano also has a profile. For those who forgot, Cazaubon actually managed to qualify for the last Olympics. Doesn't look like he will be able to repeat this as too many Mexicans have gotten good recently and Ortiz appears to have one of the two spots locked up. Thomas Rosenmueller won the Pro golf tour in 2020 (Third European tier, based in Germany) by winning three tournaments. I think this will allow him to move up to the challenge tour (the second tier of European golf, roughly equivalent to the Korn Ferry tour). He made about 28K in the process. He is now 375th in the Official World golf ranking (OWGR) Kristof Ulnaers is apparently also playing on the Pro golf tour (where he finished 49th in the order of Merrit in 2020). Ian Snyman has also broken into the world golf rankings top 1000, by winning a tournament on the "big easy tour " (i think that is an African tour) earlier this year. Cory Churchman appears to be 2nd on this years NTPGA Players Tour Points List and has recently also played once on the Korn Ferry tour (I assume through Monday qualifying) Andrew Hudson was apparently playing on the PGA tour China in 2019, don't know what happened since. I am sure I missed a number.

  5. A couple offseason tweets the last couple days, showing the new team getting some early practices going. Rasheed Browne and Hameir Wright signings announced Practice shots. Not sure who that is with Thomas Bell. Abou looking ready for more workload this year

  6. Thank you for these great, thorough updates. I didn't know about some of the guys. I knew about Carlos and Sebastian, of course....and knew of Cazaubon. I had hopes that Snyman and Churchman were on some tour. But I had no idea about the others. And thanks for the info on Cazaubon, Snyman, and Churchman. (and how they're doing on current tours). It will be really nice if either of our really good lady golfers...Lauren Cox or Audrey Tan....get a shot at the LPGA. I know Audrey is just a junior....and has one more year here. We had an alum on the LPGA for a year or two. A Swedish gal named Nina Reis. She never won....or even challenged....but she made the cut a few times. Thanks again for these updates....

  7. •••I give it 6.5 to 7 stars out of 10. It started out slow but ended fast. Weatherford’s Pythian Home off Bankhead Highway was featured as the FW Masonic School. Mineral Wells Baker Hotel was used in the shooting as was other recognizable venue in the North Texas area. ••• Martin Sheen did a more than commendable acting job as Doc. •••Luke Wilson was good as Coach Rusty Russell. •••Treat Williams played the part of FW’s Amon Carter. Comedian Ron White, Robert Duval & Matthew McConaughey’s brother were also in the movie. “Newman!” from Jerry Seinfeld played a villainous role. •••Featured in the credits were the original Orphans with bios on each. 3 of them attended 🦅 North Texas. ••• I saw Weatherford acquaintance Congressman Roger Williams in a bit part as a referee. (How ironic that Roger Williams Dodge dealership was right next door to the theater I saw “12 Mighty Orphans.” https://www.sonyclassics.com/film/12mightyorphans/

  9. What a waste of time this article is. Apogee is awesome and looks like the Taj Mahal compared to the previous joint. Fouts was simply the worst college football stadium in the country, bar none. Not even close. But Apogee is the exact opposite of the old dump…

  10. I'm sure that they will share; I was just pointing the talent that is available. The usage is up to Tommy Mainord. I have been pleased with Coach Mainord. He has developed several good receivers each year. I feel sure that he will give adequate playing time to the best receivers but he has enough depth to keep fresh legs when necessary.

  11. Yeah... but the Goat never had a viable back-up while here... now we likely have two decent options. Aune numbers wise, was comparable to almost any QB in CUSA last year.

  19. Exactly. And every sport at every level except FBS football. I won't deny that this new proposed arrangement gives us a better chance than the 4-team playoff. But it's still strongly tilted away from us. And if we cave in on this, what is to stop the P5s from appealing to this precedent in the future, and say, "Not every conference in football gets an autobid....Why should every conference in basketball get an autobid?"?

  20. It might make sense from a parity and competitiveness standpoint, but it makes no "cent$" for the P5.

  21. I may be stupid, but if there are 10 conferences and you are going to allow 12 teams in the playoffs, wouldn't it make since to put all 10 conference champs in and then the next two highest rated teams that are not conference champs? That way, you are guaranteed five G5 schools. At least then a kid knows that if he goes G5, he has a chance to compete for the biggest prize in the game. May not get there, but at least you have the opportunity. Kind of like basketball.

  23. A). They have never been to Apigee B). Attendance has no direct correlation to the quality of the stadium C). Parking is not a problem. Park at Fouts and take a fun walk over I-35 D). The photo in the article was taken September 8 2018. Not very current reporting. E). Who in the world is Moneywise and if they’re so wise about money, why hasn’t ANYONE heard of them.

  25. Why do you think Lofton would be a better ballplayer at a lower weight? His size with his agility is what makes him a special player. He might be better at a significantly lower weight, but he also could be a lot easier to defend.

  29. It was certainly an interesting football movie, but they tried to keep it somewhat based on truth so it ended with more of a moral victory than a Death Star explosion...Good for historic accuracy, but probably bad for box office. I saw it at a sneak preview and sat behind one of the actors that played a game official, wearing his MASONS sweatshirt, and a really old guy that was a fan of the book because he was a child when the 'orphans' came to play his hometown Sandies. I was a little confused by the chronology in the film, as to what season it represented. It seemed to condense Russel's 14 season career at Masonic Home into one 'almost' dream season. It also showed, I believe, one player progressing to NTSTC and two playing after WWII service at North Texas State.

  30. Expect the offense to do less this year… because they will have the ball for less time because the defense is improved under PB.

  31. The key should be the hiring of Phil Bennett. Out of all the available coaches out there, bringing back a guy three years removed from coaching (if I got that right?) to exorcise our defensive demons should be the litmus test - after all of the above, SL and co. hires Bennett…does the defense improve or do we still see the same not-so-mean green defensive efforts that costs games? Find success on defense and SL is a hero again, but if the defense provides the same results then what? Brought in a dinosaur to Coach and look what happened…? Really piss poor defensive effort last few years…get it right SL.

  32. you don't have to go into doctorate studies. We've seen other student athletes enroll in a second masters program, just to retain playing eligibility. They might not even be interested in the degree itself, just playing. As long as they're on scholly, it's not like they're losing money to all this tuition, right?

  40. She isn't even allowed on UH's website, so she comes over here to attempt throwing shade. 2019: UH average attendance was 64% of TDECUXYVQZ Stadium's capacity UNT's average attendance was 69% of Apogee's capacity. Stats are fun.
