  1. Wells leaves Texas Tech at 5-3 on the season, and with a 13-17 record overall in his Tech career. Meanwhile, in his last 30 games at UNT, Seth Littrell has a 9-21 record. And 3 of those 9 wins are against FCS schools.
  2. We can't host cut-and-pasted articles taken from other publications. This goes back years... You can look up a batch of lawsuits filed over a decade ago by the Las Vegas newspaper (and then any number of other publications when the Vegas paper started winning) targeting web forums, message boards... Even a blog about cats. In this case, it's not just a full cut-and-paste, but also one taken from a gated, subscription-driven website. Since their whole model depends on people paying to access the full article, they tend to be even more aggressive and litigious. Nobody is suspended or anything... But it is absolutely critical that anyone who doesn't want to see Harry paying out thousands in lawsuit settlements abide by this clear, longstanding forum rule, and not copy articles here.
  3. UrbanDictionary has no guidance. We can only imagine.
  4. It's a euphemism for a person's genital area.
  5. If I had to guess, he held out for better offers around 10 years ago that never quite materialized, and finally decided to jump on a shot at a decent mid major head coach position. Completely uninformed, total speculation.
  6. One Shining Moment is sort of like the Super Bowl MVP "I'm going to Disney World!" traditional spotlight of success. Think of it as the year's time capsule for that tournament. They try to include a spotlight shot of every team, but with 68 teams and only 190 seconds in the song... Sometimes your spotlight is your team getting dunked on or walking off the court crying. In 2010, I think we may have had a player or two visible in the background of closeups of K-State players. In 2007, I don't think we appeared at all. So, unless you're an Elite 8 team... You may get a glancing appearance or maybe nothing at all. But when something big happens (like the buzzer beater shot Ty Rogers hit for WKU back in 2008), you can get a little mini-spotlight. For us, to get a sequence of shots and a spotlight audio clip about how it's our first ever win is a nice little niche in this year's time capsule. That's not common for a team that gets knocked out in round 1 or 2 unless it's a crazy 15 or 16 seed upset that loses in round 2. It's not world-changing, but it's nice that we're a featured school. Especially for the sort of people that go back and watch those like highlight reels as the years go by.
  7. 3 hero shots and an audio drop. For a 2nd round exit, that's pretty phenomenal.
  8. 18 years ago, Gonzaga was fresh off 6 NCAA berths in 8 years, including 8 tournament wins, an Elite Eight appearance, and multiple Sweet 16s.
  9. Thanks, buddy. Hadn't updated my signature in a few months.
  10. I mean... I had fun watching, but I'm a filthy, distant, casual observer at best these days. I'm glad for people who were heavily invested in the season. I know if this had happened 10 years ago or so, when I was traveling to see as many as 27 games in person one year... This might have literally killed me. Stopped my heart cold. Anyone who was ride or die all year, I'm glad they got to experience this as a possible once a generation or once a lifetime payoff. Hopefully there's more basketball to come.
  11. All I could think was that hopefully, somewhere out in the wilderness, @UNTflyer and Dewey the Bear were celebrating like crazy.
  12. Who can even think about that when I'm sitting here worrying that someone forgot to turn off the oven or unplug the iron before they left for Indianapolis. The whole damn Athletics Center may be gone by the time the team gets home!
