  4. Huge news! This is a very big deal for North Texas Athletics and the future -- thanks to all who have made it happen. GMG!
  5. I wanted to share a couple of inside notes on this remarkable Bleed Green story that North Texas fans will appreciate as we head into tonight’s match against Wichita State in front of a national television audience (ESPN2) at 8PM. There is an amazing story of how they were able to get to this point (win or lose tonight) and it is something North Texas fans should be extremely proud of. North Texas alumnus and donor David Anderson played in the annual Don January golf tournament back in May of 2022. Former UNT player DJ Draper was on his team. The two exchanged business cards and promised to stay in touch. Former UNT player JJ Murray came up with the idea of fielding a North Texas team in the The Basketball Tournament 2022 (TBT) several years ago and got together with DJ Draper after this season to discuss in more detail. The two then came together and started the application process and reached out to find a general manager and financial support. TBT is an open-application, single-elimination tournament played each summer in the United States. The 2022 edition features 64 teams with a $1 million winner-take-all prize, broadcast by ESPN. TBT was founded in 2014 by Jonathan Mugar. It is difficult to get a team in the tourney as any team that wins one game in the prior year gets an auto bid so there are limited spots available. >300 Teams are applying for basically about 30 slots. UNT was one of the last ones to get in. DJ started working on how the team could get funded for travel and expenses and remembered David and called to set up lunch. During lunch David immediately agrees to help support the team and starts making calls to donors etc. Bleed Green were big underdogs in both of their first games against Eberlin and K-State. At this point, if UNT as the underdog again (-7.5) wins tonight against the Wichita State team, ESPN will pick up the tab on future travel and operational expenses. Absolutely NO ONE is preparing to the level that this UNT squad is in terms of game film and practices etc. They are all working so hard and putting in super long hours in terms of practice and preparation. It has truly been a team effort and many of the team, coaches and support staff and is a really neat story on how this group came together in such a short period of time to be so successful. A good and loyal group of boosters have again come to support North Texas in this situation. This includes but is not limited to, Ernie Kuehne, Don Loveless, The McNatt brothers, Mike and David Riley, David Vanderlaan, C. Dan Smith and of course David and Julie Anderson. Coach McCasland is flying in for the game tonight. Go Mean Green!

Herold Medical Update: The journey continues (thankfully); Have spent over 95% of the time since Dec. 1 in hospitals or rehab facilities, including: 5 hospital stays in 3 hospitals 5 rehab stays in 4 different facilities Was on death watch twice the last 6 weeks Lost my kidneys Developed liver psychosis On dialysis 3 times weekly On parenteecioys every other week Survived staff infection then septus infection. Survived red blood cell count of 3. And, most importantly I THANK GOD because I am still alive! And, I thank ALlL of you for your prayers and notes and calls of support. I have made it back to rehab after 3 months bedridden in Bedford. Next step I hope is home!!! Yes, my life has changed and at first u was mentally destroyed. But, then after praying and thinking I still have projects to do (more coming soon) and lives to change. I found Dialysis at Sea which means my cruising days aren’t even over. I am planning trip to Vegas to see UNT play UNLV. Working on putting together trip with Randy and Terry to drive Route 66 from Chicago to California Have most exciting opportunity of career in next two month Finally getting to ride in my new 2022 Tesla Y Performance that was delivered weeks ago! Life changes…but you adapt! The Lord has more for me to do! Learning to walk again now, but plan to be back at home in 3 weeks! Please continue your prayers. As you know, miracles happen every day!
  8. Thanks for pointing that out. It should be corrected now. If not please let me know. GMG
  9. Agree they cannot be underestimated and NIL seems to play into their strengths.
  10. We are very pleased to welcome back North Texas AD Wren Baker for our summer edition of the podcast. Wren has graciously accepted to spend an hour with us and we are grateful for his time. There is so much to talk about with the realignment, NIL, the new AAC conference, capital projects and many other topics of interest. The podcast should be up for listening this Thursday night (7/14) and we will post links here and on our social media. As always, we welcome your questions for Wren and feel free to list them here in this thread. We will try to cover as many as we can but likely will do a part II later on and use the rest of them then. Thanks again to Wren for taking the time and as always, Go Mean Green!
  11. The Big 12 is involved in deep discussions to add multiple Pac-12 programs as a way to shore up its membership in the wake of the USC and UCLA defection to the Big Ten, sources tell CBS Sports. At least four teams are being considered with the potential for the Big 12 to add more as realignment continues to shake out. Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah were mentioned specifically as the teams being targeted by the Big 12, sources tell CBS Sports. There is also consideration of adding Oregon and Washington to make the Big 12 an 18-team league, the largest in the FBS. A merger of the Big 12 and Pac-12, in some form, is also a possibility. "Everything is on the table," said one Big 12 source. There is "no question" the Big 12 has to be aggressive in expansion, another conference source said. Despite the Big 12's attempts, the Pac-12 released a statement Monday saying it would immediately begin negotiations on its next TV contract, intending to go forward with at least its 10 remaining members. There is a possibility more could be added to the mix, according to a Pac-12 source. The Pac-12's current deal expires in 2024 read more: https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/big-12-in-deep-discussions-to-add-up-to-six-pac-12-teams-after-usc-ucla-defections-to-big-ten/
  12. So more is being made of this than there should be. Ewers should start this year if he beats out Card etc. Manning won't get there until next season and he would likely redshirt. After 2 seasons Ewers would end up going pro anyway most likely. No doubt they are stockpiling talent there though.
  13. Clark was a fantastic coach. What he accomplished at UAB was amazing. He will be missed.
