  2. I've seen a lot of people say Aune makes or breaks this game for us. While we desperately need a statline outside of his weaker performances (~150 yards, 0 TD 1/2 INT), I don't think he needs to be anything better than just okay. I know people are tired of the over commitment to the run, but we need to HAMMER it Saturday. They are a front seven that has barely allowed 100 RYPG, but UAB rushed for 220 yards and literally gave UTSA that game. I'm not trying to take anything away from UTSA (yes I am, who am I kidding) but UAB wins if they go for it on fourth and literal inches instead of cowardly punting it away. Western Kentucky (one of the most efficient offenses in college football) were able to spread the ball out and still rush for 147 yards against UTSA and lost by six. Illinois rushed for 150 and lost by 7. My point is, we need the RB core to go nuts on Saturday. QBs like Bailey Zappe, Dylan Hopkins and Artur Sitkowski have been able to exploit their secondary. But we NEED three separate 50+yard rushers. We need to wear them out on defense. Our defense has been phenomenal this year. Phe-no-me-nal. They've allowed 380 total YPG (which is pretty good) and that's largely inflated due to how quickly our offense has given the ball right back to opponents since week one. If we can show up, establish any sort of running game, prevent turnovers, and keep our defense off the field as much as possible, folksd we have a chance. WKU played their game and hung 46 on them. They needed miracles to beat Memphis and UAB. They struggled with Southern Miss, who we destroyed. This team is beatable. RUN THE EFFIN BALL.

  3. I think fans are exhausted of seasons of building, potential, just wait til next years. 1/5 of teams finish in the top 25 each season, and something like 40 win bowl games. Those figures haven't seemed to include us.

  4. Reminded of this team coming into this weekend. We have pride and performance, and we’re dangerous. And I can promise you, no one wants to win this game more than our players. GO MEAN GREEN!!!

  5. I swear, if somebody looks back on this game and either… 1) Says we “choked” and should have won, or 2) Watches any future KU game and says they weren’t “as good as we thought” That person should get a day 30 ban for being dumb. Kansas would beat a LOT of ranked teams by 12 points…and likely will this season.

  18. If Seth could follow Dykes to TCU I wonder if he might want to mutually negotiate his departure any ways? (timing) Could make great money and stay in an area he loves. They are best of friends.

  20. One thing I noted looking at the UAB no score, it seemed the Blazers shut down the run and dared Harris to beat them- which I suppose he did. Their star RB only had 65 yards on 3.3 a carry. Harris tossed 3TDs on had 323 yards with almost 70 completion percentage. I think we likely employ a similar strategy but our defensive backfield is our weakness. The twins and Novil will have to get quick pressure on Harris to disrupt the passing game. This worries me on two fronts (in addition to the weak DBs): 1) aggressive twins and blitzing LBs can easily lose containment on the QB; and 2) same aggressive play could be used against us with delayed handoffs to the RB resulting in open running lanes up the middle. Plus they have only given up 13 sacks for the season. Thoughts on how we should defend the dirtybirds?

  21. Thanks for using a single post to let me know to never talk UNT ball with you in person. What an absolutely pathetic and selfish mindset. My view of success is cheering for a North Texas victory every Saturday they take the field. Never cheer for the good guys to lose. GMG

  22. Another reason I don’t feel sorry for coaches or schools if the portal makes things harder for them… 10 year, $9.5M contracts.

  23. kind of bummed that they didn't get any player interviews on this one. It's amazing how in this series of plays, you had big time plays by Trice, Sarge, Orr, Will Wright, James Jones and Laramie Lee. This flipping defense was stacked...

  25. That, sir, is a very bold presupposition. Im already stealing bits of the premade menu items my wife has made. By Saturday the only carcass I intend to feast on is some very gamey roadrunner. Which I intend to chase with a victory celebration 2 piece KFC combo with mashed potatoes. And apple pie. Cause 'murica

  26. If we lose, an entire fan base full of egotistical assholes who have been dogging on us all week get to celebrate and mock us further. If we lose, we don't get to go to a bowl game. If we lose, UTSA will have a winning record over us, a perfect season (we have zero), and - assuming the score is true to prediction - a blowout victory over us for the second year in a row. You should absolutely be upset if we lose Saturday.

  29. Not my favorite school but I have to give them credit and respect for what they have done this year. We have only dreamed of season like theirs. I hope we beat them but I hope they get a good bowl game and win. We need to figure out what they have done and do it. I am tried of being in middle of the pack. I don't think our current coach is the guy to lead us out of the middle of the pack.

  41. Definitely because of the rumors of Samples leaving. He is probably the biggest recruiter there, guys relate to younger coaches like Samp. Now is the time for UNT to get their shit together
