  1. Two contract extensions in a relatively short period of time. Two salary increases as well. Yearly income that would take many of us 20 years to equal. I have to raise my eyebrow and become very concerned when the head man has become better at Coaches "speak" than winning Conference Championships, critical conference games, bitter rivalries and bowl games.
  2. THIS! AMEN!! And yes, look where we were just 2 years ago. I am very proud of this team and it’s coaches. These young men make me proud to wear Green. COME ON, 8,200!!
  3. I agree! The presidents of this Conference need to move swiftly in replacing her. My fear is they will come after Baker. I believe he could make CUSA the top G5 conference very quickly. The conference needs someone with his talent and abilities but just not him!!!! We need him more.
  4. I sure hope they do a much better job concerning drainage than they did with the expansion of the Alumni Center.
  5. Yeah this team is pretty incredible. How they won that game is unbelievable. Maybe we don’t miss Lawson after all.
  6. Meanwhile UNT is the little engine that could. We just quietly keep moving forward. Step by step.
  7. I wish people would lay off beating up on Guyton. This kid was absolutely incredible at catching the football before the concussion. In fact, he made Fine’s numbers look good catching many off target passes from Fine. The hit Guyton took against Army was nothing short of an “assault” and was meant to take him out. It did. It was a serious injury. True he hasn’t been at the same level since, he’s more tentative and from a health standpoint he probably shouldn’t be out there at all. Even so, he is still a very good receiver.
  8. Call it the "June Jones Disorder" Listen if a wife tells a husband over and over how much she love's him and then out of the blue gets up and runs off taking the kids with her for a taller better looking guy don't tell me it wouldn't affect you emotionally. Likewise, if a coach tells 17-20 year old kids over and over again and again that they are family and then decides to not only walk out for a better family but also take their entire coaching staff with him as well, leaving them high and dry, I don't care who you are this will affect you emotionally. You may not believe it but it does and it will if you are human. The fact that it didn't come to fruition doesn't matter. The damage was done. The trust was broken. The family is broken and whether the trust will ever be restored is yet to be seen. We played like a bunch of lost confused kids today and no one should hold them at fault. Period. I am very proud of our team!!!! I hope we recover. Go Mean Green.
  9. We were the team that played like we had just lost our Head Coach. Actions have consequences.
  10. Haven't seen this kind of effort from our players since we laid down against Portland State getting McCarney fired.
  11. Stop it Brett. You wrote an article. That's your job. Don't make excuses, point fingers or blame others. Again, weighing the pros and cons is far more intense than "it crossed my mind". We all know the pros but what about the cons? Well, 1) a further distance might make it more difficult and more expensive for family and friends to make home games. 2) What if for some reason a nagging injury affects his play forcing him sit on the bench his senior year. 3) What if the receivers at the new school aren't nearly as good as the receivers he has at UNT and his stats aren't nearly as good as people expected. What if some hotshot freshman or another transfer comes in and he finds himself riding the bench the entire year? I'm sure there are many more cons but if I had to guess none of them or the ones listed played any part in his decision to stay at UNT. No one knows more than Mason Fine what it feels like to be told you aren't big enough. You're not tall enough. You're not strong enough. You're not good enough. I believe Fines decision was based on the future, not one in football but one in the business world, or running for Chief of the Cherokee Nation. Or maybe public office. I think it all boiled down to integrity; for how could Mason tell the Mean Green Family you're not big enough, you're not tall enough, you're not strong enough, you're not good enough? That's why we love Mason Fine!!!
  12. Not necessarily true. Unfortunately, it cast a little shadow over comments Mason has made over the last three years about it not being about him but about the team and the program and what they were building in Denton. I have nothing but total respect for Mason Fine as a player and individual. I just hope he is happy here and doesn't feel stuck here because he made a commitment and his character is such that he will honor that commitment, pros and cons, knowing full well, as we all do, that he can play at the P5 level.
