  1. I haven't written a grumpy email to the Athletic Department since 2004 (I know, hard to believe) but if we do the rotating uniforms this year, I'll have to. Pick a road (all whites), pick a home (green and white) and stick with it.
  2. Which is why if I was the University I would focus on getting those new graduates attending games and coming back to campus for fun events rather than having a hand out immediately. The AD has put some effort into doing that but not sure the school itself does. I would give every graduate a free subscription to the North Texan for five years.
  3. Back in the 90s and early 2000s when I went to a lot of away games I would meet those home fans and pick their brains about giving back to their university. The overwhelming sentiment of those under 30 (and maybe even 35) was hell no. Especially Sun Belt schools but even at places like LSU and OU most younger alumni laughed at giving money to the school they just shelled out a lot of money to. I would think with how much tuition is today, that sentiment is even stronger. Not everybody is rah rah about their school, they just want the piece of paper and to be done with it. I work with a mid-forties guy who went to Idaho and follows Idaho sports. When he found out I donated money to UNT he kept asking me why and what for. To him, only rich people with extra money give to universities. He doesn't even make that connection to donate to Idaho. Good news is the school is reaching out to people. They can't say no if you don't ask.
  4. Just curious, don't high school coaches still have to teach classes? I get the chance to be an OC at a high profile HS but going from college to high school seems weird to me.
  5. Thanks, been waiting for this info.
  6. There's a lot of horseshit in this post.
  7. This is the new norm, if we're going to get butthurt every time it happens, we're in for a bumpy ride. This is why raising the overall talent is just as important as a great player here and there. Gotta keep the ball rolling forward.
  8. I don't follow recruiting that much but I'd like to think I'm smart enough to know that a "1" next to North Texas is better than the number we've had in recent recruiting classes. Recruiting is getting better which makes me happy. However, when we bring in these transfers or JUCOs, the EXCITEMENT needle for me doesn't move very often, especially if they don't project as a starter. Who knows, this kid could be a mainstay for two years but right now, a projected back-up OL for a team that went 4-8 last year doesn't do much. Having said that, I'm probably higher on this team then most on here.
  9. Hard to get excited about bringing in a back-up at a position of weakness. We don't need depth, we need improvement.
  10. Not trying to be a nitpicker here but if you can't come in and start on this OLine, then why are we bringing in a JUCO? At any position for that matter.....I think the thought process should be we go high school every time unless a transfer or JUCO can start at that position. My cent and a half.
  11. We’re 8-1 and they’re 1-8 and you’re talking lay-offs? LAY-OFFS?!? DON’T TALK ABOUT LAY-OFFS.....LAY-OFFS???
  12. Can I say I love looking at the standings (in any sport) and seeing “North Texas” at the top. GMG!
  13. That loss to a .500 WKU team in the Sun Belt final still burns me. We’re in the tourney when we’re in the tourney.
  14. The way their stadium is currently built, there's no room for expansion. And for the two games I've been there the past two years, there's no reason to expand it. While they draw good crowds, they aren't filling it on most games. Then again, all the Friday night games probably doesn't help. I don't see how games with Tulane, SMU, or East Carolina bring more people. Helluva tailgate scene though.
