  1. 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."
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Repetitive posts, by bad fans. Many are the same dolts that clamored for Dodge years ago.
  5. Sports Illustrated has UNT in Boca vs Army. https://www.si.com/college/2021/11/28/college-football-bowl-game-projections-2021
  6. Can the admins just lock all coaching threads.
  7. 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.
  8. This thread is full of bad fans trying a pathetic pivot.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Missed all those New Years bowls from SDSU, AState, LA Tech & Memphis.
  13. Anyone who down votes a post about winning isn't a fan.
  14. 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?
  15. This is the same message board that wanted Dodge, so maybe STFU.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. UNT is very lucky to not be in LA Tech's place. If the AAC had stopped at 12, I don't think we would have made the cut. LA Tech should be trying to cut a deal with the SBC. WKY and MTSU with the MAC. With UTEP as the odd man out. I can't see the media rights to the new CUSA being worth it to keep the conference going.
  19. This is a complete crackpot theory. There is no reason CUSA would name AAC it's successor or any way the ACC could claim CUSA's assets. The minimum 6 teams is to stay an FBS conference. CUSA as an organization can continue to exist and still collect the exit fees. The only way CUSA is going to agree to mutually dissolve and not collect exit fees is if everyone finds a home. And right now UTEP, LA Tech, and FIU are going to take the exit fees as they face Independent status or an FCS downgrade.
  20. Pssst. The AAC announced it already. And yes, it customary when exiting a conference to begin resigning from those conference leadership roles.
  21. Simple question, as a FAN what your you looking forward to the most in the AAC? I'll start, New Orleans road games.
  22. Guess that settles it. It's time to shut up and play better.
  23. I guess we need to post this again. It's pretty tacky to start piling on schools excluded from the expansion (Just like some people on this board continue to demean the Sun Belt). UNT is one of the worst teams in D1 football right now and would not have made the cut if the AAC went to 12. So let's show a little class, celebrate our win, and not start making a list of other programs shortcomings.
  24. I would quit counting our chickens before we know the terms of the AAC deal. Nothing says we are getting a full rights share right away. "The American Athletic Conference has received applications from six schools hoping to join the conference, and the AAC is expected to send them each a formal letter by the end of the week detailing the terms of expansion, a source with knowledge of the process told ESPN on Tuesday."
