  1. I think this is much more likely the issue, other than having no decent NIL program. Our history and our apathy is just so easy to sell against for recruiting. Denton is a great college town, though, and with DFW down the road, it shouldn’t be a problem to get FBS talent here…unless the coaches are the problem, which we won’t know for certain for at least a couple of seasons at least.
  2. If it is, we are gonna be staring at no better than a 2-10 season…gotta beat these two before the schedule gets much tougher.
  3. Agreed. I had us at 4-8 and I’m now hoping that isn’t too hard to reach.
  4. Don’t look, but UTSA is trailing at UH by 3 with under 5 minutes to go in the game.
  5. I do wonder if Tulane isn’t gonna offer the ACC the same thing SMU just did…
  6. We should cancel our series with them, but we won’t.
  7. I agree with this. Like Stanford, SMU has the cash to be independent. And like BYU did, they’ll fill out a schedule with teams that want an OOC game that is winnable and against a recognizable opponent. They’d fill it out with series against many regional teams and the service academies and Notre Dame.
  8. Good for SMU if they pull this off. I wish we could do it, but it is what it is. I will also provide the corollary, which is that we should never play them again. Make them miss out on any local or in-state games.
  9. Fisher isn't getting fired at A&M any time soon. That buyout is $77 Million if they fired him after this season and $68 million after next season. Nobody is firing someone for that kind of buyout/bailout...
  10. Remember, Hurley didn't run into any trouble with this plan, either. No major voices in the fanbase, certainly none in the university's leadership or faculty, and absolutely none from Denton's Citizenry. It was a nuclear bomb to the program. It killed off almost all fans that graduated between the 40's thru the 90's. What has been accomplished since 2000 has been almost amazing considering what we have had to overcome, mindset-wise and from a lack of giving alumni. Where we are today is damn near miraculous when you consider what we have faced and where our university is located, basically surrounded by major universities and old money schools that have all got major media coverage. If we can sustain this same kind of growth going forward AND start getting alumni to care and fund the program at a level that is at least double where we are, then the odds of being a top G5 program are realistic. And when the Power Schools break away to create their NFL-lite level of play, it will be nice playing teams that we are similar to in resources and facilities while giving our football team a chance to win a national title some day.
  11. Your post was which conference would we join and that the AAC would kick us out. All I said was that WSU, who is in the AAC already, says hello to answer your point... Has nothing to do with us dropping football or joining spares. Just pointing out that someone already in the AAC fits the description of non-football playing member.
  12. Just a lurker these days…this place got way too personal. Decided to just walk away…
  13. This is to the rest of the board. My complaining about Judy being terrible as a CUSA commissioner has everything to do with her choosing poor teams to join the league, thinking off brand networks to show the league’s games, and for connecting with bowl games that are often ridiculous to be aligned with (Hawaii and Bahamas) are the reasons. Saying that no man is going to lead the charge to replace the first female commissioner of the worst FBS conference for years has everything to do with the MEN not wanting to get the scrutiny/removal that would occur from those upset at a FEMALE being removed, since she’s the first one. That’s on the MEN, not the WOMAN or WOMEN. I apologize for making anyone think differently of my opinion. As a married man (to a woman) and having a daughter, I wouldn’t ever think less of anyone because of how God created him or her. Im also gonna plan to leave this place. I’ve become what I always said about UNT90, that this place drives people crazy, and it’s apparent that this is now happened to me. I’ve decided it’s time to find something else to follow, after 32 years. I’ve enjoyed some great times and great people. And I thank Harry for this board—but it’s just got to the point where I spend too much time here being mad at my alma mater and some of its posters here. That’s just not worth it to me anymore.
  14. That’s an insult to my wife and my kids, not to mention my friends and family. I think you’ll find plenty of content that talked about RV, a male, being here for way too long as the AD. Yet he finally got fired for sucking at his job, rather obviously, but there was no pressure to protect him anymore. My belief is Judy McLeod hasn’t been fired because nobody in leadership is taking on the task of firing the first female commissioner. That’s a great way to get called out by the media and the university’s female leadership and faculty for being sexist. Never mind that she’s been terrible at her job for CUSA in almost everyone’s opinion. Believing this doesn’t make me think anyone who thinks differently has some kind of weird sex vibe. That’s rude and should be beneath you if you have any character.
  15. That’s odd…I only have female employees and they are the best at customer service in our field. it’s almost as if my professional career allows me to make a call on when someone sucks at their job, no matter the sexual reproduction they have. But then again, I’m not one to care about that, either, unlike so many folks like yourself.
  16. It’s a terrible, terrible conference. And has been for quite a while under the wonderful Judy McLeod. And it’s about to be infinitely worse…like way worse than the original Sun Belt in 2001.
  17. Be careful, Ben…people get mad when you mention this with freaking Judy McLeod. Imagine this reaction with one of our alums…
