    Start Times

    So hold on. Our AD does not have access to home attendance numbers for every game since the Advent of time? Why does he need to play with different times? Look it up, man! History is your friend.
  2. I'm right there with you. I was bugging my group all morning trying to get them to actually look at the radar with future sims running and not just read the hour by hour forecast (which just said ~50% rain all day). They were just not having it. When 1pm rolled around, I sent them all a bunch of 'told you so' texts and actually got a couple who live in the area to make it by halftime. Sometimes it doesn't matter how much technology you have access to. Weather like that tends to put people into "slumber" mode and once you've made up your mind that you're in for a day of indoor activities it's hard to switch back. I was getting hollered at by my wife on the drive up while tornado warnings were being broadcast over the radio. Never mind that they were for Hico/Hamilton (at the time) and on a trajectory to move through south of Dallas. Just the fact that tornado weather was somewhere in the REGION made her uneasy. All that to say, the weather really sucked right up to the original kickoff. It happens. It will happen again. Move on and hope for better weather and a better turnout next game.

    Weather & Attendance for Southern Miss Game

    Looking bad for kickoff but hopefully this pushes past after about a quarter. My daughter, 14, made clear on Thursday that rain wasn’t going to stop her from coming. So I guess I’ll be there to. 🙂
  4. We're in bigger trouble than I thought if we're relying on speeches to turn us around.

    It feels different now

    That's because it IS different. We were rolling through the season relatively unscathed on the injury front. We've now lost our RB, the backup that is expected to take most of the carries had a pivotal lost fumble and Fine is definitely playing hurt. Our coaches took an entire quarter to adjust to the opposition's adjustments and lost the game in the process. Our front seven barely got any pressure and we are banged up at LB and corner. We're not done by any stretch but there are serious cracks emerging. I don't see this team winning out from here but it'll still be fun to watch them try. That's the big thing that has changed in #NewDenton.... We are exciting to watch, are pretty well coached and our players play their freaking guts out. For once we're really easy for casual fans to latch onto.

    the green brigade

    Maybe I'm easy to please, but I thought the band did a great job Saturday night. They were loud and helped fire up the crowd on 3rd downs. It would be cool if we could figure out how to tell our crowd to shut-up on 4th downs when we're going for it. Maybe they could play something to stifle the crowd like they do to bring an end to the 'North - Texas' chant?

    Poll: Why We Lost

    I’m pretty sure I jinxed the team by claiming that Mason Fine is better than Baker Mayfield, and that he would prove it last night while on a good tailgate rant to a t-shirt OU fan before the game. Where is that option?

    After calming down

    Those saying college football is borked are not wrong. The 4 team playoff is the worst thing to ever happen in college football. I'll not come off that stance. Eff the power schools. Eff em all fricken day long. They are evil. Still, yesterday was a great day and bittersweet all the same. I wouldn't support another school and am not going away anytime soon (Good Lord willing). And LaTech is a school I definitely like being associated with. They are tough, smart and get more out of their resources than almost anyone else in the country.

    Injuries

    I thought Roberts was one of the few really big surprises last night. He seemed to gain confidence the more he was out there. He is a player to watch going forward. Also thought Bryce English showed up big time...so much so that they replaced Tua with him eventually. Easly would have been another bright spot. Huge loss there. He was fun to watch last night. Really, really physical. That last TD drive we had he was running like beast mode.

    Loss is on the Coaches

    We’ve fielded a couple of punts inside the 10 this year and tonight we were way too slow in pulling the left tackle. I think you have to let a kid try to step up and rise to the challenge but that second quarter was tough to watch. As soon as we brought on Murray they moved 45 back to the other side. Thought Mayfield handled him better. The biggest thing tonight was that we didn’t just lose “The 8,” we got blown out in that stretch. LaTech adjusted, made plays, and we didn’t.

    La Tech Game Throwbacks

    Please let that be part of the pre-game video intro. Right before the team walks out of the locker room. Warm-ups should be in shells

    TV Coverage Upgrade for Rest of Season?

    I watched it on my TV via PS4's WatchESPN application, on my iPad via the WatchESPN app and my phone through the general ESPN scores app (which I guess just launches the same video player that is in the WatchESPN app). Anyways, 3 different pieces of hardware, all on my home internet (TV on wired LAN, ipad/iphone via wifi) and all ran perfectly smooth.

    FAU...

    Admittedly I missed a bunch tonight, but from what I saw their defense doesn't tackle. At all. They are night and day from last year. OC and DC losses are looking significant.

    Iconic Mean Green Football Moments

    I was at that 97 win over Tech. Great football game. Still remember our dline rocking Zebbie Lethridge (sp) all night. That was also the game that immortalized Dunham's "Do you believe in the Mean Green" call. But what stands out to me was the following morning. My gf (at the time) was a tech student and we went to her local church for the Sunday service. In the opening prayer the pastor of the church actually prayed for the Tech football team to get over such a devastating loss and right the season. Maybe that's something he did/does after every loss, I couldn't tell you as that was the only time I visited that church....but I couldn't help but bust out laughing. Funniest thing I've ever heard. Got me in plenty of trouble, as you can imagine. Was also at the 99 game (but went with fellow UNT buddies). Walking up to the stadium before the game we were flipped off by a 3 fingered guy wearing a giant Pizza (Pizza hut mascot). I assume b/c we were wearing green. Also one of my top 5 favorite away game moments. Then I missed the game there in 2000 against Leach and jinxed the team. 😞
