  1. Why even use them for batting practice and take the chance of "accidentally" picking that bat up during the game. They shouldn't cork them period! I would also add Barry Bonds to the steriod user list, along with a few more I can't think of at the moment that are much bigger now than they were a few years ago.
  2. Hilltoppers claim Bubas Cup, but UNT gaining Mean Green third in annual all-sports cup race 06/04/2003 By Mike McClendon / Denton Record-Chronicle North Texas is apparently moving up in the Sun Belt Conference. North Texas improved to third place in the 2002-03 Vic Bubas Cup, the Sun Belt's all-sports award, after finishing fifth last year. Final team standings were announced by the Sun Belt offices Tuesday. "Anytime you're better than you were the year before, you're in good shape," said North Texas athletic director Rick Villarreal. "Our volleyball team has improved and we won th
  3. UNT's Clark in NCAA field Sprinter earns one of 11 at-large bids in 100 06/04/2003 By Ethan B. Szatmary / Denton Record-Chronicle North Texas sprinter Ananka Clark received an at-large invitation to the NCAA Track and Field National Championships Tuesday, becoming the first UNT woman to qualify for nationals since 1988. After finishing eighth in the 100-meter dash finals at the NCAA Midwest Regional, Clark shed tears of frustration. She was jumping for joy Tuesday when UNT head track coach Rick Watkins called with the news that she'd be running in the national college championship.
  4. They is a ridiculous excuse and this incident goes hand in hand with his outburst at Rick Reilly over the steriod question. Juicing his body and his bat, no matter how nice he is to the fans, does not equate to a "class act."
  5. This was copied on another post within the Mean Green Athletics posts. It is a copy of a recent Denton Record Chronicle article with quotes from RV. I'm not complaining about it, in fact, this is the type of cooperation that has been needed between the City of Denton and UNT for years.
  6. Sure, and they aren't squawking, because UNT is providing $40,000 in upgrades to two fields at Denia Park.
  7. Great news Coach. You are getting us off to a great start.
  8. Track & field: Mean Green has finals on mind 05/30/2003 By Ethan B. Szatmary / Staff Writer The North Texas track and field team takes 10 men and 11 women to the NCAA Midwest Region Track and Field Meet Friday, so head coach Rick Watkins said the Mean Green has as good a chance as any team in the region. "We’ve got a really big group going," said Watkins. "We’ve got about as many as any other team, so I’m hoping we can run well and send a few athletes to [NCAA] nationals." With the preliminary races beginning Friday morning at the University of Nebraska’s Ed Weir Track, Watkins
  9. Yeah, what's up with the response. (Just another blatant attempt to pad my numbers).
  10. UNT finished the first round of the regional in 4th place but fell out of contention after that. We finished in 17th place in the regionals last week. Congrats to the team and Coach Jackson for a great year. It's even more amazing when your home course was the Eagle Point Goat Ranch.
  11. Well, we finished in a tie for 17th place 8 shots out of qualifying for the NCAA Championships. But, we still had a great year, and I am proud of the young men on this team. They did us proud.
  12. I'll pay for your time, the tape, and the shipping. Heck, you could probably make a few extra bucks off this little service if you wanted to.
  13. Come on Chip, lighten up a little! Your awfully sensitive to be one that likes to dish out the jabs so often. Remember, you get what you give.
  14. Why don't you just set a price and sell it through this website? As UNT96 noted, you would save some fees with this process and would probably sell many more copies than you ever would on eBay.
  15. This little test in Mean Green Sociology isn't going to work, because I will be reading all of his posts. Mainly for his warped sense of humor, but also because he has a never say never attitude about UNT athletics. Mr. Spears did a great job for NTSU under Coach Fry, and he still has that passion for his alma mater. Give em' hell GG!
  16. I hope he goes out winning the Sunbelt gold medal in decathlon. One hurdle after another Determination, passion keep decathlete going 05/09/2003 By Tim MacMahon / Staff Writer University of North Texas decathlete Lupe Florez barely remembers when he started running as a young boy in West Monroe, La. — just that he wore a pair of work boots that was a couple of sizes too small. DRC/Stacy Cooper North Texas decathlete Lupe Florez will compete for the last time at the Sun Belt Conference track meet at Fouts Field this weekend. Mr. Florez has overcome personal hurdles to compete a
  17. IMHO, he's not ready for the NBA. His offensive output is too shaky with a nonexistent outside shot. He needed at least his junior year to further develop.
  18. We added 4 strokes to our lead heading into the final round today. Golf: UNT men lead by 14 strokes entering final day 04/23/2003 Staff report NICEVILLE, Fla.— For the second consecutive day, the North Texas men’s golf team blistered the course at the Bluewater Bay and Resort to extend their lead at the Sun Belt Conference Championship to 14 strokes after two rounds. The Mean Green fired a three-under par 285, powered by two rounds of 68 from Brad Besler and Zach Atkinson. UNT sits at 566, ten-under par after two rounds of play. The closest competition to the Mean Green is Denver
  19. Golf: Mean Green surges to big Sun Belt lead 04/22/2003 Staff report NICEVILLE, Fla. — The North Texas men’s golf team opened the Sun Belt Conference Championship in style by shooting a seven-under par 281 to hold a 10-stroke lead after the first day of competition. The Mean Green had four players shoot under par in the first round paced by Brad Besler, who fired a three-under 69 to end the day tied for the lead. The leaderboard is packed with UNT golfers as the Mean Green have four of the top six after the first round of play. Thomas Kulcak shot an opening-round two-under par 70 than
  20. Just prepping the Sooners for future loses to the Mean Green. Way to set the tone Ladies!
  21. Let's see, they lose Michael Pruitt to NORTH Texas and Roy Williams to NORTH Carolina. Coincidence? I think not.
  22. It sure is nice to beat SMU again. Way to go ladies!!!!!
  23. This game is at SMU, so there may be a small admission price.
  24. Here's the full Denton Record Chronicle story: Basketball: UNT’s Trout quits due to injury Guard has degenerative condition in ankle joint 04/11/2003 By Tim MacMahon / Staff Writer North Texas shooting guard Heather Trout’s has heeded her doctor’s demand that she quit playing basketball. Heather Trout Trout was diagnosed nearly two years ago with a degenerative condition in her left navicular joint, which is located in the middle of the ankle and controls lateral movement. She played through the pain the last two seasons — often riding the exercise bike during practice to l
  25. I have worked in the private club industry for 12 years, but never for one that didn't allow women or minorities in. In any event, I do understand a private clubs right to choose who to accept and who to turn away. This is what makes these clubs private. Is this right or wrong? I don't really know the right answer on this one, but because these clubs, such as Augusta National are private, they have the right to choose. I have a question for Ms. Burk though. She is the president for the National Organizations for Women, or something to that effect. Do these Women's Organizations allow me
