  1. It’s a standard boiler-plate posting. It is written to cover legal and school policy requirements.

  2. Tested positive for Covid last week and have been sheltering in place for a almost a week now. I had both shots(Moderna), plus the booster last year. I guess I have a very mild case. Slight cough and that’s about it. Best therapy for me was watching highlights of the annihilation of NutsaK. Fun times. I feel better already.

  3. THERE SHOULD BE A LOT OF PRESSURE ON THE AD AND HIS ADMINISTRATION TO GET A DECENT CROWD FOR THIS TEAM...THEY DESERVE BETTER THAN A THOUSAND FANS PER GAME. ATTENDANCE CAN BE JUMPSTARTED, BUT THEY NEED TO WORK AT IT TO GET THERE...I KNOW, I'VE DONE IT.

  4. Since I live in Bowling Green & do watch WKU BB, thought I would give an unofficial GMG.com mini scouting report (survey format). WKU likes to play zone and force their opponents to drive in on the 7'5" Sharp or take open 3 pointers. Zone defense allows them to rest as they have some stamina issues with their rotation. Sharp was not a starter at Hopkinsville H.S. and only averaged < 18 min/game in Junior College. Sharp can't play 35 minutes...27 minutes or so is all. But he has 74 blocks this year....so one of the nation's leaders in that category. ...and this will be WKU's first Thu, Sat series of the season. They could get tired early. Forcing teams to play from behind in the 2nd half is WKU's strategy. This is so their opponent will play more aggressive on defense and WKU can draw fouls.. ...to get to the foul line. WKU wants to hit more free-throws than their opponents attempt, if that makes sense. As of this posting, Keith Williams (6'5" G & Cincy transfer & 4-star recruit) eligibility for the UNT game is unclear. Other Diddle Arena is a notoriously difficult place to play for opponents. Snow won't be an issue. Warren County has 100 snowplows. 7" of snow last week and 12 hours or so to clear. Hillbillies do not reside in Bowling Green. They live in the Appalachian region of Eastern KY. I will not attend the game due to the crazy high COVID-19 cases here.

  5. The #UNT G. Brint Ryan College of Business has received the second-largest donation in its history from alumnus Wilson Jones (’85) and his wife, Jane. The Jones’ $5 million gift will create The Wilson Jones Career Center — a new space in the college that will provide more adequate and accessible support for career readiness. The generosity of Wilson and Jane Jones will improve career outcomes and opportunities for our students, and will enable our students to better develop industry relationships that will have long-term implications on the college’s reputation and rank. As one of the largest business schools in the nation, our goal is for every business student to participate in a degree-appropriate applied professional experience during their academic career. The Wilson Jones Career Center will help us achieve these goals and increase college outcomes as it serves as the essential bridge for Ryan College of Business students to access the world beyond UNT. Wilson’s recent generosity is not his first example of putting others first. Recently retired as the CEO of Oshkosh Corporation, Jones has lived by the motto: “Do the Right Thing.” He stood by these values because he firmly believes that a company that does the right thing ultimately benefits everyone — from team members and customers to suppliers and communities. This philosophy earned the Oshkosh company a No. 8 ranking on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies list, a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award for being one of the best places to work, recognition as a Military Friendly Employer by Victory Media and one of Ethisphere Institute’s World’s Most Ethical Companies, as well as a spot as one of The Wall Street Journal's “Best Managed Companies” from 2017 to 2019. Jones was named one of the top CEOs of 2018 and was honored with the UNT Distinguished Alumni Award and inducted into the G. Brint Ryan College of Business Hall of Fame in 2021. We are proud and honored to have the support of Wilson and Jane Jones as we take our college to the next level and support our students in new and exciting ways.

  8. What? A little background here. Ousmane was a very well known player coming out of high school and committed early to Rhode Island. Rhode Island had to reevaluate it's signing class when Makhi and Makhel Mitchell, the twin four star freshman center/power forwards who left Maryland’s basketball team in December, committed to Rhode Island as a package deal. Ousmane then committed to Grant McCasland and North Texas. Many schools were also still pursuing Ousmane, mostly Rick Pitino at Iona right outside New York City. Can you imagine the pressure, sitting in his living room with his parents and Rick Pitino and declining because he has committed to play basketball a thousand miles away in Denton, Texas. Rhode Island couldn't keep a commitment but he could. Thankfully Ousmane honored that commitment to North Texas, signed, enrolled, has worked out like a son-of-a-gun, and has rapidly developed his game. Recently the defeated UMass coach has said there was "very little they could do against him" as he was so dominant inside. Many schools wanted him and we are very fortunate to have him. . .

  14. A change.org petition isn't the same thing as a school planning to restart football. When someone from their administration says they are going to investigate restarting then I'll believe they are actually interested. The last I saw in any news article, UTA administrators were says they were NOT even looking into football, although that was pre-pandemic.

  16. I don't think members of congress should be allowed to own individual share investments given the risk of insider trading. I missed the outrage on the board I guess in 2020 when several Republican senators seemed to time their stock trades to news they got about how bad COVID would be... https://www.forbes.com/sites/jackkelly/2020/03/20/senators-accused-of-insider-trading-dumping-stocks-after-coronavirus-briefings/?sh=79bce5ee4a45

  19. Just shows how our season went and the continued improvement through the year. Early we lost to a La Tech team that we would have beaten later in the year. Late in the year we beat two teams that ended up ranked ahead of us. I'm looking forward to next year.

  24. Not saying this game will be easy by any stretch, but beating the Hillfloppers won’t be some miracle. We have a common opponent in Buffalo. They lost to them by ten, 77-67 We lost to them by three, 69-66 (and I already regret bringing this game up, because I know I just triggered several of you)

  26. We have seats we can’t fill due to covid. I am immunocompromised and cannot attend unless masks are required, at the very least. I am more than pissed that I cannot attend. We watch every game on tv, but of course it is not close to the same. I’ve been wearing a mask since 2017 due to cancer. It’s not a big deal. Wear the damn things! Wishing I could be at the Super Pit. GMG!

  31. This is the most concerned I have been about UNT recruiting since before seth arrived. We are playing the waiting game and passing on on alot of talent i believe. UTSA is kicking our ass right now. Multiple P5 transfers, just flipped a 4 star kid from an sec school. Look to be landing another 4 star possibly. SMU is doing what SMU does they have landed multiple p5 kids from DFW transfering home. Houston has landed an USC and OU transfer in the last two days. We have only landed 2 kids so far with active FBS offers.. we have zero momentum, zero buzz and passing on a lot of solid transfer kids trying to be cute. I think it is very concerning. We have lost recruiting battles to Marshall, Charlotte, Kansas State and East Carolina all in the last month. Those are battles we should be winning. If you cant sell UNT to be better than any of the four previous schools get the hell out of town. The is so frustrating I will probably taking a break from covering recruiting for a while to be completely honest. We will get our ASS handed to us in the AAC if shit doesn't change and in a hurry.

  38. Amazing, the person in this country that is best positioned for insider trading, is able to achieve a $30M gain off her questionably accumulated $50M portfolio. I am not saying that anything's illegal or unethical, because maybe she's just a really good guesser, like Hillary Clinton was. .

  39. As much as I disagree with a lot of the people on this thread, it does frustrate me that congress can still trade stocks during their terms. I know John Ossoff is introing a bill against that, and Pelosi didn't like the bill (I wish she would leave, she's more useless than people think). Like how hard is it for you to see that people's livelihoods were destroyed and here you are bragging about your giant gains? This is also part of the reason why Dems will get blown out in 2022.

  40. Torrey was a mid-term JUCO addition to the 2018 class arriving with a 3 star - .8056 rating. Ended his first year at UNT as a 2nd team All-CUSA player at RB and honorable mention at KR and just continued to improve. Finished his career with an unbelievable performance against utsa and a leader on the team. I wish him well as he pursues is NFL dreams and thank him for the way he represented our university. https://meangreensports.com/sports/football/roster/deandre-torrey/5130 Currently ranked seventh in career rushing touchdowns (23), tied for eighth in career total touchdowns (rushing/receiving/returns) (27), 12th in career rushing yards (2,013) and ninth in career all-purpose yards (3,324)

  42. UNT MEN’S BASKETBALL: Scott Named C-USA Freshman of the Week Again Scott Earns Second Consecutive Freshman of the Week Honor DALLAS, Texas – For the second consecutive week North Texas men's basketball freshman Aaron Scott has been named the Conference USA Freshman of the Week. The 2021-22 C-USA Players of the Week awards are presented by Surf & Turf Golf and announced by the league each Monday. Scott was perfect from the field this past week in the Mean Green's two games combined and the Spring, Texas, native averaged over six points per game. He scored nine points on Saturday in UNT's 70-63 win over Middle Tennessee as he came off the bench and played a season-high 30 minutes. This is the second consecutive week he's been named the C-USA Freshman of the Week. He becomes the first North Texas freshman to earn the honor twice in a season since Ryan Woolridge and AJ Lawson each won it multiple times in the 2016-17 season. Woolridge also earned it in consecutive weeks that season. Scott is the first C-USA freshman this year to earn the award in consecutive weeks. His nine points on Saturday versus Middle Tennessee are the second-most he's scored in a game this season. Scott averaged three rebounds per game this week as well. UNT is on road this coming week as they travel to Marshall on Thursday and then WKU on Saturday. The games are scheduled to tip-off at 6 p.m. CT and 3 p.m. CT, respectively.

  43. I watched him come off of the bench vs. UMass and was immediately impressed with his length and athleticism. Give him some more time with McCasland and he could become dangerous.

  45. It would be nice to have a gameday program. I also wish we could remove the white sign on the season ticket holder seats that are never filled. One whole section on the east side has white banners and I have never seen anyone sitting there. They need to have people checking on why season ticket holders are not using the seat they purchased. Are the corporate seats? If they aren't going to be used, maybe the account holder would be willing to donate them to be given away to school groups, youth teams, ect. We used to have the young halftime games and little dribblers groups that at least stayed until after they performed. Parents will come to see their kids. I just don't know how much time and resources the athletic department is devoting to try to increase basketball attendance. I may be wrong but it doesn't seem to be a top priority.
