  1. With the NFL playoffs starting this week and the BCS wrapping up whatever it does, I thought I would write out a thought I had over the weekend of what the NFL Playoffs would look like if they followed the model used by the NCAA and the BCS. =========================================== First of all,. the playoffs would only be represented by the NFC EAST, the NFC North, the NFC West, and the AFC West. These are the automatic qualifier conferences. The other conferences just don't get enough TV time to be considered competitive so they are out. The Patriots, Steelers, and Saints might be allowed in but only if they are really, really good (undefeated for like two years in a row). So the first round of the playoffs will look like this. The first semifinal will be the Bears vs the Rams . The second semifinal will be the Cowboys vs. the Chiefs. Sorry, that is how they got ranked. The Super Bowl will the winners of the Bears/Rams game and the Cowboys/Chiefs game. There will also be playoff games featuring the Saints against the Seahawks, the Vikings against the Eagles, and the Chargers against the Redskins. These games don't really mean anything but they are playoff games in our system. Just be happy you got to play in an extra game. The Patriots, Ravens, Texans, Colts, and Steelers had good seasons as well and while their records were better than the Redskins, the Saints claimed the spot from the non-qualifying conferences so there were no other opportunities. Yes, the Redskins only had 7 wins, but they were legitimate wins. Also, next year the NFL will reduce the money allocated to the conferences of the non-automatic qualifier conferences to amount normally given to one team in an automatic qualifier conference. You still have follow the same rules and provide the same benefits, but do it will less money. And if you are really good, we might let you play in a playoff game. And don't complain to the NFL - this is how TV wanted it.
  2. Well, Kansas State is breathing a sigh of relief.

    Glad to hear SEAN Littrell was our coach in the second half.
  4. It's hard to believe that we lost to a school that has a video production team that consists of four guys with Sony Handycams, a single tripod, and a video splitter. I'm just not dealing with that very well and I get nauseous everytime I try to watch the video replays.
  5. Anyone know where I can buy a UNT hockey jersey? Even used is good.
  6. The latest CBS Sports mock draft has two Conference USA players in the first round. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/2018-nfl-mock-draft-cardinals-trade-up-to-take-fourth-quarterback-in-top-10/ 20. Detroit Lions - Marcus Davenport, DE, UTSA. 24. Carolina Panthers - Will Hernandez, G, UTEP. Yeah I know it's a mock draft but still nice to see the conference getting some respect from a talent standpoint.
  7. So I just talked to the ticket office. Here is the breakdown: The tickets in sections 105, 206, and 207 are now $400 each - $200 for the ticket and $200 for the scholarship fund. The tickets in 103, 104, 106, 107, 205, and 208 go up to $325 each - $175 for the ticket and $150 for the scholarship fund. The Scholarship Red Zone tickets are $150 each - $125 for the ticket plus $25 for the scholarship fund. The remainder of the seats for face value. For me. that would be about a 50% increase over last year. Getting our butts kicked in Nawlins was expensive experience!
  8. Only one way to make this better. Give him the CUSA trophy and a bowl trophy to lift.
  9. According to Twitter, UAB has been invited to the Bahama Bowl. This is according to the official Bahama Bowl Twitter account.
  10. Would it make you happy if Dakota Johnson were wearing it? :)
  11. Something you might find interesting. My daughter was taking part in an event today for UNT and was told no UA gear could be worn. They were all issued Nike clothing. Sounds like a serious trend. Has anyone been in the campus bookstore lately and know if they still have UA gear there?
