  1. If Garrison Johnson wasn’t going to sign with us tomorrow then he wasn’t going to sign with us in February. I know Coach Choice really wanted him and put a lot of work into building a great relationship with Johnson and his mother. The early signing day was time for Johnson to $&@* or get off the pot with us. I’m glad our coaches pressured him to sign early. That is the only leverage we had with him. Johnson has other options, but so will we. Better to know that he isn’t IN now so we can find someone else than getting ghosted in February when the alternatives have signed elsewhere. We need to move on.
  2. Fourth college team: FSU, EMCC, FAU and ???
  3. Wilson wanted to play pro baseball in the off-season instead of doing football workouts. This pissed off the NC State coach who threatened to name Mike Glennon (future NFL journeyman) as the starter. Wilson got mad and transferred.
  4. I think it would take a pretty unique situation to get Mason to grad transfer. It would have to be a national title contender. And how many of those are there, really? Maybe Kyler Murray goes to play baseball and Austin Kendall tears his ACL this spring? Most national title contenders have 4 or 5 star QBs with multiple seasons of eligibility left as backups. Even Mason’s original “dream school” of OK State has Spencer Sanders in line for their QB job. Why would a good P5 prefer one year of Mason Fine to the potential upside of it’s own younger highly-rated QBs. And why would he transfer to a P5 that doesn’t have a shot to win a national title? He already has a chance to play on TV and on the biggest stages in out of conference games. Heck, even at home games he is playing in front of large crowds. Plus, I would guess that he has relationships and loyalty towards teammates here that he would not want to betray. Most grad transfers switch schools for more playing time. When Russell Wilson left NC State it was rumored that it was because he had lost the starting job there. Also, many grad transfers don’t end up working out. They don’t even end up winning the starting job at their new school. I think Mason will finish his career at UNT and always be remembered as an all-time great.
  5. I stayed home. Pouring rain, lightning and a tornado warning were happening when I would have needed to leave for the game. A tornado ended up hitting Waxahachie HS a few miles from my house. I wanted to be at the game but getting in the car and driving through that with my wife and kids would have been dumb. I regret nothing Wren Baker. Go Mean Green!
  6. They need two car lines in the blue lot. One for those who already have their blue tag and another for those paying cash. I pay extra to get that blue tag so I can park quickly. I had to wait in line 15 minutes last game while people paid cash and got change, etc. A logical person might not support the MGSF just to get the parking pass if all they have to do is pay cash on game day and they have the same parking experience either way. Plus, if you pay cash on game day, you don’t end up paying for parking to games you can’t attend like I am right now by making a donation to the MGSF to get a parking pass. Wren needs to protect the value of the parking pass and encourage supporting the MGSF by offering an express line to those of us with the blue tag.
  7. We also have to prepare for the nightmare scenario that Littrell gets an attractive P5 job (OK State?, TX Tech?) and Mason Fine follows him as a grad transfer. So far, the grad transfer thing has only benefitted us, but it could also burn us. Really, really hope it doesn’t happen.
  8. I don’t care how many other offers these recruits have as long as we keep landing in conference championships and bowl games.
  9. You don’t think Littrell recruited well right out of the gate? He signed a kid who is now the best college quarterback in the state in his very first class!
  10. He is pretty good, too. Article (from The Ringer) mentions his Mean Green football career. Looks like Nwigwe is about to be big-time! https://www.theringer.com/music/2018/4/23/17269458/tobe-nwigwe
  11. Feb. 13, 2018 DENTON - In some respect, it's a good thing Kason Martin left Manvel when he did. The freshman quarterback enrolled early at UNT just two weeks after playing in one of the most talked about high school football games in history. He said he couldn't walk around town without people asking him about the game - the Class 5A Division I state championship game, which his team lost in heartbreaking fashion after coming up literally a yard short of winning as time expired. He figured with a relocation to Denton, he'd be able to walk around campus without people asking him about the game that was still weighing heavily on his mind. He was wrong. One of his first days in Denton found him eating in the cafeteria at his new dormitory when an upperclassman student-athlete came up to him. "Hey, you're that Manvel quarterback, right? I saw you in that game." "You've gotta be kidding me," Martin thought. read more: https://t.co/jMfbEE3n3G
  12. Doesn't demand have to go up for prices to go up? How can you raise prices when attendance is already not good?
  13. Sounds like the fee failed and the SGA members who support it passing are trying again. With voter turnout so low historically, if we can just get the student athletes themselves to vote for it then the fee has a good chance to pass.
  14. 14 of 24 on field goals for his career. Yikes. i will choose to trust Seth on this.
