    I am proud to be in a conference with La Tech. Don’t get me wrong, I want to beat them into the dirt every time we play them, but they always bring their best and they represent our conference well. Where ever we go conference wise, I hope the La Tech pennant continues to fly at Apogee. GO MEAN GREEN

    Social democracy does not equal a socialist dictatorship. The American "far-left" is basically center-left compared to the rest of the world. But when juxtaposed against the American right wing, fueled by 30+ years of Reaganite austerity that seems intent on ripping apart the New Deal and taking us back to the 1920s, universal healthcare/education, anti-monopoly, pro-union policy seems crazy. FDR must be a commie, right? Yet those policies are extremely popular. So popular, in fact, that Donald Trump used them on the stump to get elected.

    I'm right there with you. My money goes to NT season tickets and to Stars games. Now that I'm back in DFW, I may try to get Stars Season tickets. The Winter Classic is going to be epic. I got mine the first evening of presale. I guess RBP realized he was off and isn't going to take my bet.

    Who is UNT's football rival ? "Building a large fan base." That doesn't even make sense. " Our rival is building a large fan base. " My freshman English instructor at NT, Dr. Burns would have eaten this guy alive. Wow. GO MEAN GREEN

    My former high school played against Mount Vernon. We were a diverse school, and they were not. When they played this past year, I heard their players were using racial slurs against my high schools players. The game was so chippy that they had a post game meeting between the refs and coaches from each team. The head coach before Art literally left for a job 15 mins down the road at Winnsboro. I have heard Mount Vernon is like any small town from East Texas. The school board is full of “good ole boys”. There are people from Mount Vernon defending this hire on the East Texas sports forum. They are trying to argue that he had a clean record at Stephenville, and he didn’t get charged with any crimes. I’m glad I moved away from back woods East Texas.

    Hope you never screw up or get treated as a scapegoat, covering all bases here, and want a second chance.

    Just goes to show that people still believe in second chances, as they should. Rick

    Honest question here. Should he change careers or just retire? No second chances in life?

    Please remind me, what was Briles convicted of? Seems more and more we live in a time of Guilty unless proven innocent. Don't get me wrong, I don't care for the man, but as a society, we are getting to the point where we want to be the judge and jury and pass sentences on what someone should be able to do the rest of their lives. I guess a lot of you on here are very careful of the shows, movies, music, and professional sports you watch and listen to since so many in those industries have been accused of crimes.

    Not a Briles fan and not defending him because I know he didn't have control of his program, but I don't think he was accused of any sexual assaults. Also, I doubt he's going to be recruiting any bad characters to Mt. Vernon, so I think the women and children will be safe. He's gone from head coach at a Big 12 school to head coach at a 3A school. He was making upwards of $4 million a year now he's making probably around $60K. Not to mention his reputation is obviously shot. Plus, he's 63 years old so I doubt this is a stepping stone to getting back to a major college job. He's paid a hefty price for his "crimes" and rightfully so. The sad part and the hypocrisy is that Mt. Vernon will probably have greater attendance numbers at their football games next year than any 3A school in Texas.

    UNT's biggest rival is Texas Woman's University. The Pioneers divert resources and sense of community from UNT sports teams.
