  1. Posting a crap topic like that here on gmg should earn you a ban. That’s what I think.
  2. There are plenty here pointing to the recruiting heading up. Last night was a showcase of how important it will be to keep that heading in the right direction. Those that want to run off Littrell apparently aren’t watching the same games that I am. Absolutely, last night was yet another disappointment in front of a great crowd. But holy cow we were just not at the same level in terms of overall talent on the roster. Houston was bigger, stronger and faster. Plain and simple. We made lots of mistakes, for sure, but at some point you have to give credit to your opponent for making plays. Keep the momentum going by winning the West division and bringing in another great class of recruits. That is how we close the gap. It is not time to push the reset button. Having said all that, the new offense is clearly a work in progress. It is concerning to still be seeing what looks like confusion 5 games in. I’m not sold on it, yet, but hope to see improvement through the year.
  3. That post game press conference on the radio network was maybe the most dejected I’ve ever heard a UNT coach sound. I’m officially worried.
  4. Torrey fit the graham harrell offense. Easley and siggers fit this one. Time for the coaches to make it official.
  5. There is no question that Fine is struggling with the new offense. That first half last night was possibly the worst I’ve ever seen him play. The bigger question is what will we look like by the end of the season. I’m betting he starts to figure things out.
  6. Yeah, I can't believe I was trying to defend them....but I guess I always thought they were never really more than an also ran (except the Doak years) until I ran into those all-time attendance numbers. It shocked me. They probably still have old-timers around that were there to see those days. Even if they were cheating their guts out the whole way. If recent history tells you anything, they have never been alone in that pursuit.
  7. You guys do know that up until 1950 that dirty smu was perennially ranked in the top 3 in terms of total attendance---in the NATION? I can't seem to get google to work for me today, but here's a view that shows from 1948. At one point I had found a report that went back at least 20 years prior. Even after 1950 their attendance didn't totally plummet, but it didn't make the top 3 and really dropped off after the Cowboys started playing in the NFL. http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/football_records/DI/2010/Attendance.pdf So the notion that they did nothing without UT is off base. I hate them even more than Georgio and trud1966 combined!...but the facts are that they were incredibly relevant over a pretty long period of time. It is why they still have some of those super heavy hitter donors bankrolling the program.
  8. Nailed it. The positive spin to last night is that we have fewer teams than we thought that might rise up and beat us. The way to get to Boise's level is with 10-11 win seasons, not 8-9. People seem to forget that they regularly (like every single season) had the weakest SOS in the country while they were on their big run and rise. They were in the WAC, with only Fresno putting up a fight most years. Our schedule is absolutely perfect for where we are at. We just need to go out and dominate it. That will bring in more interest and more donors, which leads to bigger budgets, better facilities and better recruiting. Jumping to the MWC or AAC now would land us squarely in the bottom half of the conference budget wise.
  9. If we didn't have to play both LaTech and SMiss on the road I'd feel better about this prediction. I just need to see this year's defense get on the field before I am comfortable with this team. When Garner and EJ went out of games last year we gave up points quick and in big bunches. When Kemon was also out we were swiss cheese. I'm less worried about the secondary, but our backup LBers were not ready. Hoping an off-season of first team reps has changed that.
  10. Kerr Hall as a Freshman. Apartment just off campus as a Soph. RA in Bruce Hall my junior, senior and 1st half of my victory lap. Apartment in Lewisville (closer to work) for the 2nd semester of said victory lap. Best experience by far was in Bruce Hall. I was similar to NM Green---token business guy in a wild and crazy environment.
  11. All three are going to be absolute shoot-outs with the offenses each team fields. Granted dirty schmoo has some work to do to get to where Dykes' teams usually are. I picked schmoo and Houston. If only to make a statement against the AAC and our fellow in-staters. Cal is a weird place to play a game and a loss that far out west could more easily be forgiven (so long as we don't pull the crap we did against Utah St and get blown out).
  12. Curious how the increased focus on the TE position will impact line play, as well. I haven't watched Reader's offense, so I don't really know. Does he split them out on every down, or use them to help chip or run block on occasion?
  13. When TCU was in the conference they outspent everyone else by a significant margin. We'll be coming in closer to the bottom. We'd need to upgrade our budget, staff and talent to replicate what TCU did in the MWC. Not saying we couldn't be competitive, but TCU DOMINATED that conference (at least on the football field) and used it to leap-frog out.
