  1. So they told us that the guy they subcontracted to do the merch waits until he gets a big batch to run anything. My wife called him and told him we were g.m. of the team and they sent here one of the several things she ordered so she could have it for the tournament in Wichita. We are considering putting up our own merch store on line and giving a local person the business. We will be putting up a website. I have reserved "purchased" several domain names that we are considering. Most likely it will be "bleedgreedtbt.com" but we have "bleedgreenbasketball.com" and "bleedgreenhoops.com" also. When we get it up and running we will let everyone know.
  2. actually......its 17.........lol.iykyk
  3. What is "indie"? Asking for a friend......
  4. So now that its over, and there is time for reflection, a few thoughts. Our coaches, Andre Shaw and Clay Wilson prepared our team better than any other team in the tourny. From film sessions, game planning, and practice this was a professionally run organization. Hats off to them. We had a game plan put in to stop Conner Frankamp. If not for the foul right at the end, he would have had 6 points. Aftershocks were a good and experienced team, and we took them to the mat. We got down 10 late and the guys never quit. We were one dang possession away from advancing to the "elite 8" in this tournament. Players. Obviously just putting the team together was the hardest part of this tournament. Up until a certain date you can add up to 10 players on a roster. After 10 players you have to pay tbt $1000.00 to add a player. We added 4 players this way. 3 out of the 4 that we added late were very important to any success that we had. One decided on his own that he did not want to make the trip. Now that we have a reputation of how we treat players, and that we can put a team together that has a chance to win, we think this will be easier next year. #1. We are going to put a team in this tournament next year #2. We expect to be a 2 or 3 seed #3. No one is going to out prepare us going forward Lastly, I have to say that for me personally, dealing with these elite athletes was one of the best sports experiences of my life. The character and professionalism of the guys that made the trip to Wichita was incredible. Google Jordan Stevens and look at his "ballislife" videos and you will see just how lucky we were to land him on this team. This all because the reputation of J.J. Murray and D.J. "drapejuice" Draper, our coaching staff at North Texas, and of course the reason we got in in the first place North Texas Mean Green basketball. Every player on our roster was an elite athlete. In closing, I hope you had as much fun watching this as I did being a part of this. The goal is for us to win this tournament next year, and with this year as our foundation, it is 100% achievable. For now, its football season, see you in the blue lot just a few weeks!
  5. Woolridge by all accounts is sitting on his couch in Mansfield texas. His reps in practice were invaluable to this team. It Is sad he isn't here.
  6. We have a plan.....let's just say that. And yes aftershocks are a very good team
  7. Morning practice. The guys all feel great!!!
  8. It was so electric. And when the purple players knew it was over and it got chippy....i am having so much fun helping these guys
  9. I feel like we are making some noise. Anybody that watched, was it this much fun on t.v.?
  10. Woolridge rear end hurt because he is sitting in Mansfield texas
  11. Not so fast my friend.....we have really really good guards. Brandon jefferson is a fantastic player. He takes r.w. place
  12. all three on the bleen green team...... zach is really playing well
  13. Williams couldn't get here for some reason. You cannot believe the work that D.J. and J.J. have done to put this together, then keep it together. Another new add last night that should really help also. Practice should be fun this morning.
  14. no fizzle, grow. We have built the back end to repeat this again next year.

  17. I hope you clowns keep changing coaches every couple of years....
  18. our ticket guy left for the washington commanders.....I know they were interviewing people last week.
  19. At some point more people are going to realize how true this is......Within any organization, there are strengths and weaknesses.....and there are many positives with the current state of the athletic department......BUT.........
  20. Wow big time.....even the practice balls are brand spankin new
  21. Actually, the local little dribblers coach in fact actually retired this year. His actual name is Mike Mcleskey. He got tired of the grind of hauling @100 4,5, and 6year olds around to area gyms. He actually "misplaced" a couple last year and the parents were getting a little agitated.... so.....there is some truth to this....
  22. I feel like I was just listening to my wife from another room, she is telling me things I need to do, and I am just saying, "Yes" and "ok" and "I got it" on every sentence pause having no idea what she is telling me... Then I just get in my truck and go to a bar, with her thinking that I went off to run and errand...only to consume 2 or 3 servings of brown water, returning home satisfied that I did my job......
