  3. A lineman from Pawhuska, Oklahoma, Atterbury played for OSU head coaches Floyd Gass and Dave Smith in the early 1970s and earned a reputation for his relentless effort before an injury ended his playing career. As a high school athlete, he was a standout in football, wrestling and track, earning all-state honors on the gridiron. From OSU, he went on to become a respected football coach with a 48-year career that included stops at high schools in Big Spring, Texas; Sand Springs, Oklahoma; Tyler, Texas; Liberal, Kansas; and Ada, Oklahoma; as well as time at the collegiate level with North Texas. Most recently, he was an admired member of the staff at his hometown Pawhuska High School, serving as head coach for many years before helping with the offensive line during his final season. read more: https://okstate.com/news/2021/8/19/cowboy-football-remembers-duke-atterberry.aspx

  4. Can we stop talking about this dude? I don't care. Hardly any of us care. He's not here anymore. OA3 and Torrey need some love and are still here. Let's move on.

  5. Ruder has all but immediately started Fall practice already listed as co-#1. He for certain has impressed somebody as his rise on the depth chart is very impressive. Most any FBS G5 football program would be happy with either of our co-#1’s. Just a gut feeling, but I do believe Ruder will be the outright starter by game #3. 🦅

  8. I can't believe you are at the point of trying to re-define what a vaccine is. No, scratch that, I can. I do believe it. I should have predicted this. But this is rich, even for you Lifer, MD.

  9. Clearly you feel strongly about your this, there are 110 replies to this topic and 42 are from you.. We all want the best players on the field, we all want the Mean Green to win every game, we are on the same page. But calling people homers, starting your replies with LOL, suggesting that people who disagree with your opinions need to be put out to pasture isn't the best way to go about things.

  11. I have to say that, when you weigh everything, I don't understand all this opposition to getting vaccinated. Sure it's a personal choice. Although most people are fine with requirements that children be vaccinated for measles, etc. to attend school. But what really is the issue with getting jabbed? The way I see it, the more people who get vaccinated the sooner we can treat this as a bad flu as @SteaminWillieBeaminsaid and move on from masks, social distancing, and the rest of the "new normal" Covid crap.

  22. As for studies that only take the post vaccination months into account (March-July) when looking at hospitalizations (and thus will sway the vaccine 'hesitant') - just released: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7034e2.htm 90% effective at keeping people out of the hospital. In Alabama, just read that of their 800 covid icu patients, 12% are vaccinated. No data on the type of patient that is (co-morbidities). Had more people vaccinated, the ICUs would not be filled. It's really that simple. Then we really could treat this like a bad flu and stop with this "come and take it" macho madness.

  24. I don't get why you deniers don't get it. I really don't. No hospital system is *ever* designed to be filled to capacity by one disease. Filling up the system and resources to combat one disease immediately makes everything else more deadly. The whole "your body is already efficient at not dying - it only kills the weak" logic only applies if those people are getting sick and not going to the hospital and clogging up the whole system. If that were the case though, we'd see a lot more deaths and not so many recoveries. So that 90% stat you are throwing out there would be lower.. by quite a bit. There are 73 kids in the ICU right now - in Dallas. That is *all* of the ICU beds. That is real. if your kid has a nasty bike wreck, hits their head, passes out and has some bleeding on the brain ... well... they are going to be sitting in the ER waiting around and not getting the ICU treatment at the top facility. Why? Partly because of the freedom covid caucus, but also RSV is terrible right now too. A mask would help with that too. However, this is not make believe. Life measurably gets more dangerous without a functioning health system. Also - I've been telling you that percentages of beds available does completely make sense either. You should only look at total bed available. For instance, at the hospital I know best, it was reported they had 5% of ICU beds available... but in reality it is only 1 bed. 1 bed. You have a heart attack while jogging in this heat? You need that ECMO machine that is normally available? good luck, it is definitely taken already. Your chances of survival just got lowered by someone that is unvaccinated. I can say in complete certain terms that the only people in hospitals are unvaccinated or break throughs on older vaccinated people that have major co-morbidities (cancer, COPD, etc). It is not number manipulation. As for the definition of 'vaccine' - it is absurd to try to debate it. it is like Clinton arguing what "is" is... Vaccines do not provide complete immunity, that is not how it works. No one will claim it does or always can. It is provide enough immunity to stop community spread and kick start herd immunity that ultimately will squash the virus. Flu vaccines are a perfect example. But some dolts will try to argue that 'boosters' mean that those vaccines aren't vaccines. Which is just pure idiocy. Dictionary.com vac·cine /vakˈsēn/ noun a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease. "every year the flu vaccine is modified to deal with new strains of the virus"

  27. Are you kidding me? You want to hand the job to Ruder before he proves himself here because of who he backed up at UNC and his 247 rating and then you act like anybody knew Mason was going to be anything at North Texas before his first game? Mason had one, ONE, FBS scholarship offer so don’t sit there saying we knew we had depth because nobody knew what Fine would become at that time.

  29. Cheers pal. Like I said before, despite Aune's #'s last year, I was pretty critical of his play. Ideally he's going to get better in year 2. This bodes well for UNT football. And Ruder hasn't played meaningful football since 2018, that's my apprehension on him. On paper, he checks off all the boxes & he's already put himself squarely in competition to start day 1 which is very impressive. This also bodes well for UNT football. You may feel strongly, and that's fine. I actually like it. I just don't have that same conviction. Many here are turning the heat up on Littrell, myself included, but I'll still trust his judgement on who he thinks moves his offense best. Whether that's Aune over Ruder, or vice versa, so be it. Either way, I expect QB play to improve from last season despite losing Darden.

  30. I can answer that. He would’ve been…not good. When we signed him I went to watch him play at SOC. He was 6’10 and got out rebounded and out hustled by a 6’3 guy. After that I wasn’t too hopeful. But he sure could do a flashy put-back slam once a game.

  33. No, my advice is for you to be a Mean Green fan first and a Jace Ruder fan second. Nobody knows who will be better when we get to game time. We just have to wait and see. If you truly love the Mean Green like I do, you’ll want the best person for this offense to start, regardless of where they came from or what accolades they attained elsewhere.

  35. Where 24/7 ranked Ruder doesn't matter anymore, and Sam Howell has nothing to do with this conversation. If Ruder wants to start, he'll need to beat out Austin Aune in camp. That's it.

  36. You're really showing how new you are around here my friend. We've heard all of this crap before with transfers coming in here. The argument that a guy was pretty good but just couldn't start for <XYZ reason>, but will transfer here and just ball out and be a Mean Green Hall Of Famer by the time he's done because he's playing "at a lower level" has sadly flamed-out about 99% of the time. Believe me, we get excited about it every time. In my time following the Mean Green, the only one who really came in and produced at an All-conference level was a guy named Marcus Trice from Oklahoma in 2012-2013. He just might become a NT HoF'er. I hope so, not a shoo-in though. We'll see. Brock Berglund laughs at Ruder being the #15-ranked Dual-threat QB out of H.S... my man, we've seen that argument too. And you really need to drop the Buechele argument here. Buechele started 19 games at UT, throwing for over 4500yds & 30TDs prior to transferring to SMU. Ruder's accomplishment (just 1) is not comparable.

  37. This is about the time of the year I'm convinced that we are better than we probably are. It's some sort of seasonal sickness I'm afflicted with. However, this year....this year is different. We really are better than predicted, I'm sure if it. I'm doing it again, aren't I? Anyway, in terms of final season record, I think it will come down to staying healthy (and if our opponents are healthy when we meet). Our depth and experience gives me some hope that we are in a better position this year than we have been in the recent past to withstand the injury bug if it bites us.

  38. This is the maddening part. Anyone who refers to it as “the jab” (I dunno where that term came from, but I’m gonna assume the science heavy-hitters we all can trust like OAN, Newsmax, Brietbart, drudge, etc…) are usually the first to try & use their newfound epidemiological brilliance to undercut the efficacy by bringing up infection rates of those who have been vaccinated… but shove their heads all the way in the sand when differentiating those who are taking up all the ICU beds & ventilators (re: most of the ones who are dying). They simply refuse to see it & would rather roll the dice based on “my buddy’s brother had it & he said it was like a little cold.” Everyone handles it differently! I have a friend who is very obese get it & come out with flu-like symptoms & no hospital stay. My sister had a friend she often ran with (very health-conscious/fit with no pre-existing conditions) pass away from it. You never know how deadly it will be from person to person. Please Mean Green faithful, our fellow alumni brothers & sisters, who have not yet been vaccinated…. I care for you. Don’t risk your life, or the life of someone you love, & get vaccinated! PLEASE!
