  1. Directly in the center of a city of 1.4 MILLION. Attendance of roughly 0.01% of that number
  2. First off, he has the tangibles as far as build. Second, his ball seemed to get out on time and he was hitting receivers where they are most comfortable making the catch. A lot was made last year about “drops” by receivers, but a part of that is the body position a receiver us in when he’s asked to make a catch. Last, after big plays he was going around to everyone on the offense, patting o-linemen on the head and celebrating with skill players (and this was on running touchdowns).
  3. All of them. It was a line issue, not the QB
  4. 1) Aune looked good, but no better than in years past. Gunnell just looks like his ceiling is higher…but whether he reaches it is another thing. 2) Unless it gets cleaned up, we will stop our own drives again this year on penalties. i watched for 20 minutes and I swear I saw 6-7 false starts. 3) In typical North Texas fashion, they invite fans to show up at 11am to watch the team…and finish practice at 11:20 4) Oscar Adaway looks good. 5) It appears we will be a run first offense again. I think we should change the motto to “hand it off low, and watch them go” 6) I think we will really miss Novil and Colvin in the middle
  5. So Minnesota, a team in a league that just added USC and UCLA and is one of two leagues that currently sits in the drivers seat (SEC and Big 10), is gonna leave for the Big 12, a league that might just get picked clean by others?
  6. Sure, as long as you don’t fall into the tired mindset of North Texas being so inferior that we accept career backup level quarterbacks being our starter for consecutive years.
  7. Now, now, you’re being a little unfair. We ALL know they’ll show up to the game; you have to show up to work when you’re getting a paycheck. They were undoubtedly confused by seeing that mythical creature, a “fan”, that they have only heard about in stories though.
  8. This year, yet…because someone took it to start 2020 and 2021
  9. I hear he just signed a $200 NIL deal with Dunkin Donuts
  10. Oh no, I will take no pleasure in a 5-6 win season...even if it proves I was right
  11. When the P5 "better" offer came in, there was never a doubt this would happen. Notice his parents are in the photo...often I think this is where the push to go to a "bigger" school comes from.
  12. Also, if we are being honest with ourselves, we would be ECSTATIC if we were 30 days out from our home opener and had 10,000 tickets left unspoken for given our recent past...and UTEP has about the same level of success in the past several years.
  13. Yes. We have GOT TO get out of the "old Denton" mentality of being the little engine that couldn't. We are our own worst enemy, and nobody doubts us more than we do. I think it is about time we start expecting to be great around here. We need to stop assuming that others (namely SMU) are capable of great things while we are just "lil' ol' UNT". Wanna know why every person that knows me doesn't dare take shots at North Texas? Because that is MY school and I will be damned if I, or my university, take a back seat to anyone. In my presence you will not tell me that we are lesser in any form or fashion. And, it's the damndest thing, those same people now keep up with the goings on of North Texas because that's what it takes to relate to me or converse with me about college sports...I simply won't let you leave my school out of the conversation. The bottom line is this...if WE don't respect North Texas, we should have no expectation that others will! Sorry @wardly, not meaning to single you out specifically, but the purposeful taking a backseat to others in our own minds has got to stop.
  14. Why? Do you think we’ll get a P5 invite, because that’s the only thing that would prevent it
  15. I don't know who that guy is, but that is not the real "Diet Coke Guy." Maybe this was a stand-in for a game. The true DCG is a very good friend of mine and part of my tailgate if anyone wants an autograph this upcoming season (with my agent fee, of course).
  16. Two things: 1) It’s not “time to time”, there are literally 5 different threads about SMU “talking to” a conference or “pressuring” a conference to let them join. 2) There is ZERO actual evidence that they are going anywhere. When we joined the AAC, one of their posters was over here telling us they wouldn’t be in the league long and to wait for an announcement. This is a live picture of those who decided to wait for it… I have “talked to” a lot of hot women in my life. Stand by for me and Charlize Theron’s wedding invites.
  17. As much as we talk about where SMU might, maybe, possibly, could be, perhaps, hypothetically, conceivably, by chance be going in conference realignment....can we change the name of the board to GoSMUconjecture.com???
  18. Correction, the NCAA is trying to kill non-P5 college sports. These suggestions don’t get made unless the power conferences ask for them, they run counter to decades of NCAA thinking. But, when you’re afraid conferences will just pull away completely because they no longer need you, you cater to the madness.
  19. On the Mean Green Basketball twitter is a post about former players who showed up to practice. In this one Abou’s expression as Ryan Woolridge goes past him looks like he’s saying “Damn he’s fast”
  20. That article sounds like two leagues realizing they are now, at best, shadows of a “power” conference and trying to save face now that their merger won’t net them what they thought it might
  21. I think his success in the SL has more to do with playing guys who are hoping for a FA minimum contract. Yes, he had one good game against Holmgren. Name me the GM who would take Lofton over Holmgren…they all had that chance and passed.
