  1. Sorry. Not keeping up with every post in that mega thread. It's that simple as to why a separate thread title.
  2. Not a ton of info but interesting nonetheless. I think we win this battle with our supior conference director and better tv deal. https://saturdayoutwest.com/pac-12/mwc-aac-reportedly-pitching-expansion-presentations-for-pair-of-pac-12-programs/
  3. You should see some the tiny, small gyms that Gonzaga play in within the WCC. Gonzaga seems to do OK despite this.
  4. God bought the best out of him? I wonder how much God had to pay? LOL!
  5. What about Chris Morgan for the other big man?
  6. Don't forget about Christian Moore.. He might be the real deal
  7. And why wouldn't he? He's sat on the bench for two years. I was actually really excited to see him play but for some reason he was deemed not ready to play for years now by the coaching staff... Hate to lose a player of his size.
  8. That was a crazy second half...We played a little out of control and turned it over but our defense kept us in it until offense got going again. Awesome game and win! Been watching unt bball religiously since 2005 and waiting for a championship like this... The Purdue NCAA tourney win was great but this is my favorite series of wins since 2005.
  9. Wonder if Sam Houston fans are still "not impressed" now with UNT bball? They got walloped on both sides of the court....Could have won by 40 or more if didn't clear out the bench with 6 minutes left in the game.
  10. I wouldn't have good body language either playing for that dumpster fire of a basketball program masquerading as a D-1 program in a high school gym. Hell ya. 6-11 center, rated .89 out of high school... Let's take him! My guess is that he is looking for a high end D-1 conference now given he has limited time left to play and already played for a mid-level conference.
  11. The little that I've seen him play, he is a dynamic player all around... He always seems to make something happen for himself or another player in the very limited minutes he gets... I hope he stays too... But didn't we already sign another highly regarded point guard out of high school?
  12. I like that idea of AAC becoming host conference for the major military services - credibility and good attendance draws. However, I recall we actually cancelled our home/home with Army years ago....not sure it was every posted publicly why...but I do recall our player suffering injuries, some serious, due to dirty plays by Army. Don't mean to disparage Army, but this is what I recall happened.
  13. I am hopeful that AAC teams will invigorate our fan base. Can you imagine bringing Memphis, Wichita State, Temple, Tulane, etc. to Super Pit on regular basis? Any of these teams have a opportunity to be ranked any given season... and this would be regular ole conference games too... Never mind if we can attract some decent OOC games. And never mind too that some of these games will be nationally televised on ESPN, if the contract remains same with AAC. The future is exciting, all we have to do is keep winning.
  14. I was at UNT from 2005 to 2011. I went to nearly every football and basketball game during that time. I had a blast at the games. I have traveled to UNT since I graduated several times for mostly football games, but some basketball games. There is nothing like a game-day atmosphere! I cannot understand this low attendance, though I know winning has alot to do with it. For me living out-of-town, I think what a privilege it would be to be able to regularly attend these games. Fans in general are so fickle too - if a team is losing they leave early, and if a team is winning big, they leave early....you go through the time and expense to attend, why leave early at all? Anyhow, that's just my take and grip. I really hope attendance improves across all of our sports.
  15. When the difference from 3rd to 10th is .74, what does that mean in real world, on the field terms? USF, 3rd place, had a .0087 (percent) better recruiting class than UNT, 10th place. Sounds like splitting hairs to me, and will boil down to coaching, assuming the star ratings are accurate.
  16. Turns out I couldn't load anything from ESPN.. Restarted my phone and all is well..
  17. Not able to get the ESPN feed. Anyone else?
  18. When I posted our UNT offense sucks, I didn't mean to be a Debby downer, but I knew our season stats. We have a great line-up and elite defense. However, our offense or lack thereof will catch-up with us if we don't do something about it...low shooting percentages, long draughts of no scoring during a game, etc.... Defense can only get you so far...at the end of the day, you need to put the ball in the bucket to win.... Maybe Abou's performance is a step in the right direction. I really think the biggest hurdle for offense is that we play to the clock more than the open shot or in rhythm... it's hard even for the best shooters to jack up an out of rhythm shot, even if wide open, simply because there is 2 seconds left on the shot clock. I think coach is trying to open up our offense as evidenced last night with the allowance of more shots even early in the shot clock.... For those that like to downvote, please see the pic of our offensive percentages.
  19. Ya. He saw that our offense all around sucks and often looks out of sync and good shooters cannot seem to make shots, even open ones... I love our time management and elite defense but at some point you've got to let shooters shoot, preferably in rhythm.
  20. Ya. No scoreboard and very low sound.... It seems apparent that coach gave unt the OK to take open shots, even if early in the possession
  21. Any idea on why Chris Morgan never plays? I've really looked forward to watching him play since he joined the team.
  22. Game on ESPN+ I couldn't seem to find the game after repeated searches... Figured out that we are listed in ESPN+ as N Texas..no other search terms will find us in the guide. Geez.
