  1. UT & OU have a $100 million reasons to stay through 2025. There's a reason the Big 12 just rolled out a new 14 team, 2 division plan.
  2. The same six negative six posters sure are filling up this board with the same tired statements in direct opposition to the facts in this article. Now that's what I call #oldDenton.
  3. This man deserves a Whataburger remodeled after him.
  4. Since this is an annual post, here is your annual answer. The tortilla throwing was stupid. It was rip off a racist Texas Tech tradition that is rooted in Tech disrespecting teams like UTEP & West Texas A&M.
  5. I'm still not sold on QB slides. So fake slides are definite no. You are asking the defender to do to much to protect the QB on a slide, but still be ready to take him down on a fake slide.
  6. This thread reminds me why I got off this board a few years ago. The same group of unrealistic fools, who double down on their bull sh!t when called out by explaining how they are real fans. Listen up youngsters (who aren't actually on this board, because students don't post on message boards and most of these folks are north of 40.) This board is full of the same people that defended the tv thief, hated Dickey because he got their racist frat kicked off campus, drooled all of the high school coach, and proclaimed a new dynasty under Mac. But hey, they're the real fans because despite how wrong they are, they still support their alma mater (as if they are the only fans in the country that do so).
  7. I'm all for the optimism, but this is a bad analogy. Harbaugh went to Michigan, was the quarterback, his dad coached there, then he made is name in the NFL. It's not really the same thing. But yes, UNT should stick with a coach that get's them to multiple bowl games (even if he doesn't win all of them.)
  8. I also have secret sources that say Frisco. https://collegefootballnews.com/2021/12/bowl-projections-college-football-playoff-predictions-final-call As Yet Unnamed Bowl in Texas Date TBA Network, Time TBA Expected to be played in Frisco, Texas Bowl Tie-Ins: Group of Five vs. Group of Five Bowl Projection: Eastern Michigan vs North Texas
  9. Just beat a ranked team on his way to his 5th bowl. Why is this even a topic. "The Mean Green have been remarkably consistent under Littrell. They always seem to find their way into bowl games. That’s a remarkable run of success for a program that played in a bowl game just once in the 11 seasons before his arrival."
  10. According to CBS Sports via Google. In order for an FBS team to officially become bowl-eligible, it needs at least six wins with a minimum winning percentage of .500. A total of 82 teams are needed to fill all 41 bowl games. Teams can only count one win against an FCS opponent toward the total number of wins needed for bowl eligibility. I don't think the reddit-webs are correct about Long Island State, they've been in the FCS since 2019.
  11. MTSU has already accepted their bowl bid to the Bahamas. Bowl committees make the selection from available conference affiliations with a consult from the network. Bowl committees looks for schools that can fill their ticket allotments and sell more seats.
  12. Repetitive posts, by bad fans. Many are the same dolts that clamored for Dodge years ago.
  13. Sports Illustrated has UNT in Boca vs Army. https://www.si.com/college/2021/11/28/college-football-bowl-game-projections-2021
  14. Can the admins just lock all coaching threads.
  15. I think exiting CUSA actually hurts our bowl chances. The bowls are aligned with conferences and CUSA is likely to lobby to MTSU over UNT. But fortunately for us bowl committees are going to compare schools head to head, so UNT probably comes out ahead over MTSU. The bowl committee cares about Better attendance, ticket sales. The Network cares about better media market, better signature win (UTSA vs UConn), second half of the season to carry over to a bowl.
  16. This thread is full of bad fans trying a pathetic pivot.
  17. There's something like 41 bowl games, so 82 slots. After all 6 wins teams have been slotted, if there any open slots its goes to the 5 wins teams with the best grades/APR. UNT was something like #85 in APR last year. I think we were in the 50's when we used APR to get into bowl in 2016.
  18. UL-M and NMSU are still trash. The new CUSA is also a flaming dumpster fire. UNT is annoying to SMU, but nowhere on the level as NMSU is to UTEP and UL-M is to LA Tech.
  19. I'm all for being the bigger person, but the new CUSA is a trash conference. Worse than the 2001 SBC. If your LA Tech why do you stay? Just go to the Belt, if they will have you.
  20. Missed all those New Years bowls from SDSU, AState, LA Tech & Memphis.
  21. Anyone who down votes a post about winning isn't a fan.
  22. Waiting for evidence of any mid-major program what has sustained its football success over 5 years, let alone an entire conference. Boise had a good run, but didn't last a coaching change. So why do you care about a conference that your not in and don't play teams from?
  23. This is the same message board that wanted Dodge, so maybe STFU.
  24. Non-sequitur and non-responsive. No doubt the AAC going to 14 was a great move on there part to block the MWC from coming into Texas and to have hedge in case more teams jump to the Big 12. Not to mention the added side effect of killing off CUSA. All of which are reasons they went to 14 over 12, and we are very glad they did, because as #13 and #14 we got lucky.
  25. UAB was 1st by a mile. RICE was a lock via relationships with the other private schools and the Houston Market. Charlotte & FAU fit the Eastern needs. UNT and UTSA were very lucky. UNT did the absolute best marketing will all the credit going to foresight to hire the consultant two years ago.
