  1. While I don't like UTSA, they are NOT a satellite campus of UT Austin. They are a separate university with a common governing board. There are lots of examples of this including Kansas and Kansas State, and UC Berkley and UCLA.
  2. I'm not saying we should just say yes, but to reject the city out of hand doesn't make any sense. I'm sure the NT administration will not do anything that foolish. And just a glance at the Denton Convention and Visitor's Bureau website shows there are two to three events/meetings/conventions a WEEK in Denton. A facility will increase that exponentially based on what's happened in Frisco. https://www.discoverdenton.com/?UTM_source=GMB_listing&UTM_medium=organic
  3. Certainly, explore it! The City wants to partner with the school and that's exactly what has been needed for years. "Partner" doesn't mean doing it only in a way that best suits UNT only. If you don't want to be a partner, don't expect support!
  4. I could be wrong, but I thought the reason for the NET ratings was to fix the problems with the old RPI ratings.
  5. Maybe. He hadn't signed a contract with Tech yet and this new contract he signed with us makes it a LOT more expensive for Tech to get him. The old buyout was 40% of his $600,000 base while the new buyout is $1.5 million if he leaves before July. To match us it's going to cost Tech a minimum of $2.6 million. Tech certainly can pay that, but Mac is no longer the bargain he was on Monday. If Tech does take him, NT just got a nice bonus $1.5 million!
  6. I didn't know Thanksgiving Square was in Denton now.
  7. Of the dozens of very qualified OCs available, why would the TCU choose to take on the reputation hit this will cause. And to those who say there isn't a reputation hit, every article about him includes references to the rapes at Baylor. A substantial number of TCU alumnus and other donors will be bothered and it will take extra work to keep them giving to the school. Schools that recruit against TCU will be digging out and using Kendals disgusting and frequently quoted comments to recruits. It no longer matters if they are true - they are so much in the public view most people believe they are true! Kendal is a good OC, but is he that much better to be worth the problems he brings? With so many OCs available, why buy the headache for the school?
  8. It appears she's not the only one against hiring Kendal. A significant portion of the TCU fan base is also against it. https://www.texasfootball.com/article/2023/01/15/tcu-fan-base-split-on-potential-hire-of-kendall-briles-as-offensive-coordinator?ref=article_preview_img&fbclid=IwAR0VkxCypbUWX4e41Zavz0DABwy6tAAkY6mvdbNtqibq3cenr_Af2z46mc8
  9. This! A big part of "going away to college" is "going away."
  10. Measuring against a teams conference is the way DCTF has done these polls for a number of years now. It's how you measure against teams you actually play.
  11. I like contracts with lots of incentives. I especially like the bonuses for increased ticket sales!
  12. His coming was foretold by Isaiah... Isaiah Johnson that is.
  13. If we could just get that guy as our nose guard.
  14. I like the possibilities of this guy. But for those wanting to bring in lots of guys via the Portal, do we have many scholarships available? I thought we were limited this year.
  15. While I don't like personal fouls, it was nice to see a place kicker make the tackle and THEN show players on the opposing sideline he wasn't going to be intimidated! Sometimes you need to throw that elbow just to show you will.
  16. If we really want another year of Austin, we should encourage him to not enter the draft. I don't think we want another year of Aune, even Aune with a new name.
  17. We’re not going to the PAC either. Although, when Rice joins next summer the AAC will have more Assciation of American Universities than the Big XII. AAU membership is the gold standard for academics.
  18. No chance the PAC would take Fresno with their near no existent academic standards.
