    The reason I asked is yesterday on one of the local sports talk shows they were talking about the situation in the Mountain West and possible teams that could be added. 

    The host brought up UNT because of the overall success and more importantly the upgrade in all facilities and the IPF. The only thing that pissed me off was one he said in referring to the IPF was that they just opened "a bubble." 

    Definitely NOT a bubble

  2. Second time in a couple of weeks. I mentioned it on Twitter and Facebook early this morning and sent an email directly to the paper. Brett was there...not his fault. This was obviously a conscious decision on the part of the paper...perhaps to "encourage" more folks to go on-line, but this is crap-ola! Even the Dallas Morning News put a small piece in the sports section about the win. So, don't want to here the "too late for publication" BS either. The game ended at the same approximate time our games have been ending for years...no OT either.

    The publisher needs to hear...the editor needs to hear. Make it so people.

  3. Twenty points isn't a blow-out? I couldn't tell that by the look on the Rice coach's face after the game last night. I've seen headlines from NBA games recently claiming a team was "blown out" when losing by less then 15 points.  Now, that was a head scratcher for me, but 20 points seems pretty darn within the blow-out range.

    But, from watching the game at the Super Pit last night, I can tell you from a fan standpoint, it sure didn't feel like a blowout. Mentioned that to a couple of folks walking out...20 point win...sure didn't seem like a 20 point win. But, give me more of these "it sure didn't seem like a 20-point win" games. I am down for that.

    By the way...this team deserves more fans to show up. First place in CUSA and playing a style lots of fun to watch. Sure getting 2200-2300 most games, but come on man!

  4. Just picked up a couple of items from Athletics for the silent auction...Scrappy bobblehead, Yeti drink container, nice bound journal book with the "Flying Eagle" logo, plaque with a cut of the goalpost from Fouts Field, some MGSF coasters and a nice UNT golf umbrella.

    PLUS: Just heard from one of our longest sponsors...CrossTimbers Equipment, owned by a long-time UNT supporter, Bryan Waddle, that they will help sponsor the event again this year!  CrossTimbers Equipment and Addison Transportation have generously supported this event for all of its ten years now! Really generous of both of them.

    I still think Fine would be a home run in the Canadian football league. With their format he would break records.

    Really not a bad option. I have a friend who is a big fan of Canadian football, and he has made the exact comment.  Fine could play QB in Canada and have a very long and successful career...if, of course, some NFL team isn't smart enough to give him a shot.

    It is already shaping up to be another really fun event...don't wait too long to sign up as we only have so many playing spots available. 

    Oh, and, by the way, we will once again have some great brisket sandwiches available from the one and only Brisket Big Daddy, Dale Hiatt. If you have tasted his brisket, you know how good it is...thank you again Dale for supporting this event!

  7. I want to thank ADDISON TRANSPORTATION for once again being the first sponsor to step forward for our event. Just so everyone is aware, Addison Transportation has sponsored this event every year since its inception 10 years ago. And, no, there is no Cheerleader connection...no parent with a Cheer Squad member...just a company who supports UNT. Not only through its donations to this event, but through its willingness to hire UNT grads! Not only does the firm support UNT, but several of its employees and management team does as well on an individual basis.

    THANK YOU Addison Transportation!

    I have checked both links and they appear to be working just fine.  Thanks so much!

    Just a bit of a head's up...when you click the "register" or donate" buttons to complete your transaction....give it a second or two...it works and you will get an acknowledgement of your transaction.

    Geu is 2 of 21 from behind the arc so I'd prefer he pass off the ball to a better 3-point shooter. If anything, I'd rather he take a mid-range shot since he is getting more and more attention around the rim.

    Yes, agree, thus my comment about not wanting to see him do it very often...but, even Coach McCasland at the first radio show mentioned his ability to shoot outside.


  10. The FIU and FAU games may just be the best back to back games I have seen the Mean Green play in some time.  The focus and intensity was evident from the start of both games.  The way the team is playing defense, and if they can keep it up, could make UNT a contender for the conference crown.  And, just as a side note...very proud and pleased at the was Rose Smart is playing off the bench. Was not sure if he could be a "bench player", but he seems to have accepted that role and , as a senior, has decided to do whatever it takes to help the team win. I have seen him "pass" on shot opportunities that last season and before he would have just jacked up...not this season.  If he has an open shot...he will take it, but if not, he is looking to pass to an open man. Big change and really excited to watch him play...adding Gau was really a big addition for the team. His presence helps Zach a great deal and, interestingly enough, Gau can shoot from three range as well as under the basket...not that I want to see him taking a lot of three's mind you.

    Anyway, great two game home stand for the Mean Green.  Fun to watch.

  11. Hard to believe that new are in our 10th year, but such is the case.  We are set for the 10th ANNUAL UNT SPIRIT FUNDRAISER EVENT! This year a tad earlier due to scheduling conflicts, but, we have secured the UNT SOFTBALL COMPLEX for our event this year...keep all fingers and toes crossed for good weather this year!

    Since KICKBALL was such a big success last year...we are doing kickball once again. We will "kick-off" at 11:00am on Saturday, MARCH 21st at 11:00am at the UNT Softball Complex off Bonnie Brae Rd in Denton.

    Registration fee for player (which includes the "collectors item t-shirt of course) is still only $35.00 per player. This is a CO-ED EVENT, so come one...come all!

    WE will once again include a silent auction with all kinds of goodies to bid on...UNT and non-UNT items...AND...once again we will have some yummy brisket sandwiches available for those interested.

    We do have a couple of back-up dates should the weather not cooperate, so please take note of these dates as well...Sunday, March 22nd and Sunday March 29th.

    So, what do we need...(1) Players, (2) Silent Auction Items, (3) Sponsors, (4)) Silent Auction Bidders and (5) Spectators...if nothing else, please come out and support our event.  The more folks that come, the easier it is to continue to obtain UNT Athletic Department and UNT Division of Student Affairs help and support.  So, yep, we need ya!

    Here are the appropriate links:

    QUESTIONS?  Ask them here (other folks may have the same question) or PM me here on GMG.Com.
