  1. That year, we played KU, who ended up ranked tenth, we played at OU, who was ranked 10th when we played them, we played at LSU who was ranked at one time that season, at Alabama, who finished ranked 21st. Louisville, who was an independent and went 7-4,and Nevada, who won the Big West in 1995. Missouri wasn't good, but we played them to open the season before they got beat up by the best conference in CFB that year, the Big Eight, which had 4 teams in the top ten, and Nebraska won the national title by about 100 over a great Florida team. We beat a bad Oregon State team at home, which led to them firing their coach and building up into a legit program just a few years later, as their fans openly said that was their low point of their football program's existence. We beat Idaho State, a 1-aa school, late in the season in our final home game, and we lost two terrible games, at home vs UAB, who was 1-aa at the time, and at UNLV, who only won 2 games all year. That exact schedule today would be a dream for an independent program, but it was a nightmare for our program. And even though we joined the Big West the next season, our OOC games were brutal for most of the next two decades, basically.
  2. Yeah, the last 50 years of welfare and our education system has really created an awesome situation for children...lets not change that
  3. Be very careful. Crazy ass fans will call this crapping on the program...
  4. I guess I am wondering why Tech and UH get 2/3 of the funds and we have to split our 1/3 with Texas State…
  5. Any reasoning for how the distributions get calculated? It seems weird for a school with the 3rd largest enrollment to get the least amount in distributions...
  6. Man, is this the truth. Some crazy ones want to keep their heads in the ground like an ostrich.
  7. Sure you did, pal…you deserve this place so much. Such a loser
  8. Telling the truth isn’t shitting on the program. No matter how hard that is for your sweet little heart to read.
  9. When the SWC fell apart, TCU was really a bad program. But the City leaders in FW, knowing that TCU was central to their city, came up with a plan for making them the Hometown Team. TCU used their best asset at the time, money, to buy away Franchione from New Mexico and bring him to FW. And it worked. He got them turned around and when he left for Alabama, his Defensive Coordinator was ready to move up. And Gary Patterson did just that. And the next thing you know, FW goes crazy for them, that leads to a Rose Bowl win and top 5 finish, then getting into the Big 12, which led to another top 5 finish, and then making a hire in Sonny Dykes to pump life into the program and he immediately leads them to a national championship game. What Fort Worth has done for TCU is what Denton has not done or will ever do for UNT. Dentin’s citizenry either ignores or openly loathes our program’s existence. We have yet to ever have one sellout at our stadium—that seats a little over 30k. It is what it is.
  10. If you’re a G5 program, you’d be really smart to look at a great regional FCS program to poach their coach and get their players to transfer. As was mentioned earlier, getting upperclassmen that are used to a coach’s system and moving them up against G5s that aren’t really good, you’ll do fine. Texas State is showing just that. We just didn’t look at that when we hired Morris. Doesn’t mean he will fail, but it makes his efforts to recruit and develop HUGE!!
  11. If you go to this game, I feel bad for you…on many levels, actually
  12. It all depends on your perspective. Our leadership is great at what the community and UNT Family overwhelmingly ask them to do, which is offer a great value for educating a ton of people and making sure the artistic vibe of Denton is celebrated greatly. It’s absolutely irrefutable that we have been a major success at both of these. When I went to school from 1991-1995, our enrollment was around 26k. Our music program was bringing home Grammy’s. Football was quarter-assed. We have now grown to 47K in enrollment, still have the music and arts promoted greatly, and our football program now is about half-ass compared to most other Texas FBS programs. Some things are just set in stone. It’s what the university wants. They don’t care if football wins or not—they just want it be there for the 10k people that support this place with dollars and season tickets.
  13. Good for the players, I guess. They got cash in their hands. I’d imagine they sleep pretty well at night knowing they got $$$ they wouldn’t have ever gotten here. Stupid system is stupid.
