Just some fun facts There are 3,724 High School Football fields in TX Average seating per stadium is 4,293.86 Total Seats available 5,320,101 Available on any given Friday night 2,660,051 https://www.texasfootball.com/stadiums/?ref=subnav
  4. Yes his numbers dropped at the end of the year. He beat teams so badly in the beginning of the year that everyone keyed on him opening up Bussey and Lawrence who had good/great second half of the year. In addition, losing Wilson, allowed teams to not worry about the run as much allowing game plans that took Guyton out of the picture. In watching the games he did not get alligator arms or shy away from contact, which would have been signs of fear of another head shot. He was just covered up with help deep for the last 6 games of the season. I expect you will see the same this year until the other recievers prove that it is a mistake to put a defender on an island against them. Makes Guyton even more valuable even if his numbers do not reflect his value.
  5. You do not get to be 6'3 and 220 eating sushi!!!
  6. Best quote in the article! “Ever since they offered me, they have been on me more than any other school and made me feel special.”

    Arkansas game seating

    My understanding of most of the Payouts is as follows. Home team agrees to pay $xxx,xxx to the visiting team and provide X,XXX tickets to the visiting team. In addition there are clauses for travel and lodging for games in most cases. If we sell our ticket allotment we make money. If we do not we give them back to the home team who makes money...

    Mean Green gear at Target in Houston

    Less than a mile from my work. May just have to stop in to support their buyer's good decision.

    Mean Green gear at Target in Houston

    Which Target?
  11. Not yet. It is getting close.
  12. I did a visual count and came up with about 87 in attendance minus the coaches and UNT employees. I thought is was a good event. I was able to personally talk to 4 coaches (Littrell, McCasland, Hedlund, and Palileo) as well as Wren Baker. All were down to earth and willing to take time with each group that they visited. Summary of my personal conversations: AD Baker - Talked about being home. Loving the town he lives in and being close to family. Coach Littrell went further to say that not only does he love his job he loves being close to his family. We talked about his hometown and how much he loved being close enough that his kid can have a relationship with their grandparents instead of only seeing them 2-3 times a year. He said "I hope y'all keep me!" I replied "I think we are more concerned about you getting lured away." He squared up to me looked me in the eye and said "anyone who thinks I would leave does not know me very well!" Coach McCasland - talked about the support from the President down to ensure he had what he needed to be successful. He really enjoyed the atmosphere of the Super Pit at the end of the season and through the CBI. Really a nice person who is excited about his team next year. Coach Hedlund - Can not wait for the soccer and track complex to start. Talked about having a home since he has played on 7 different fields in his 25 years at North Texas. He is happy with winning the C-USA but is ready to make a run in the NCAA and is setting that expectation with his players. Coach Palileo - is happy Volleyball won the C-USA so Coach Hedlund will stop busting his chops about not having a championship. Is looking forward to next season and is ready to repeat. I asked each one the same group of questions: "Do you have everything you need to be successful?" - everyone of them said YES emphatically. They said that from the board, president, and AD that they have amazing support and love the direction the university as a whole is going. "Are you still enjoying what you do?" - All said yes! "What do you need from us?" - All said butts in seats in one way shape or form, that it makes a big impact on the team and more importantly recruiting. Overall I was very impressed with the AD Baker and all of the coaches (I was not able to get to talk to the track coach who was there as well). My wife and daughter went as well and my 17 year old daughter (who wants to be an athletic trainer) was even invited up to visit by Coach Littrell and Coach McCasland and said that they would talk to the head of Sports Medicine to ensure that she was able to watch a practice during her visit. All of the coaches talked directly to her and made her feel like she was being recruited by them. At the end of the event she looked at me and said, with the way things are going at UNT why would I go anywhere else? I asked her what she meant and she quoted the fact that this past year was the best athletic year since 1975 as a whole for the university (something AD Baker said earlier in the event). New fields, IPF, and a commitment to the student athletes. She said that it felt like she would be getting in on the start of something great and that she could be proud of going forward. I liked it and thought is was a successful event and even if no one else liked the event, I think they made a decision for at least one future student last night!
  13. I will be there plus 2 I do have one extra ticket if anyone wants to make a last minute trip out.
