  1. I’m surprised they only set their minimum wage at $36k per player considering they are paying their running back over $200k just for this season alone. Might as well go ahead and cancel classes and exchange the cash for a diploma and call it the NFL-B league. Rick
  2. I wished I could honestly say I’ll enjoy watching SMU and schools like them burn their athletic departments to hell as they slush fund their way through making a complete mockery of division 1 college athletics. But then I’m reminded what will become of North Texas as it attempts to keep up. https://sportsnaut.com/texas-running-back-bijan-robinson-lamborghini-nil/ https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20211214006082/en/SMU-Donors-and-Businesses-Commit-to-Multi-Million-Dollar-NIL-Program-for-Football https://iowa.forums.rivals.com/threads/stroud-drives-off-in-200k-mercedes-as-part-of-nil-deal.392444/page-2 https://sportshandle.com/jackson-state-barstool-college-footballs-nil/ Rick
  3. Thank you Dave. Everyone back home had a blast watching y’all compete. Y’all made us very proud and am looking forward to this event next summer. Rick
  4. Hope you get to feeling better and to see you at the games Mr. Herold. Rick
  5. Maybe I missed it, but when did SL replace Fat Jimmy Sexton with JT Hammons? Rick
  6. Hate to break it to ya but there’s a lot of people not renewing their season tickets this year and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the ticket office. Rick
  7. We’re ready. We just need points scored. Rick FullSizeRender.mov
  8. ….from the NCAA REGIONALS and will play the Okie State Cow Patties in the Regional Finals tomorrow. The Mean Green are now ranked no worse than 32nd in the nation. BTW,…I would have posted this in the Softball forum,…but unlike our #1 sport Men’s Basketball, our now #1.2 sport Softball doesn’t have one ….yet. Rick
  9. ….known as the attic of my house I found this gem from the Helwig era. Spawned from the final straw witnessing our men’s basketball team come out in puke-looking shiny blue satin warm ups. I know @greenjoe will remember. UTA player to several North Texas players before tip off: “You fools look like the Solid Gold Dancers!” Rick
  10. Couldn’t agree more and wondering the same thing. WKY played two more games than we did. Maybe the committee forgot what they were watching and voting on? No idea? But Nunn couldn’t even make it out of the first inning yesterday with a single out for Christ sakes? This team started one Senior, two Juniors(including Peters), 5 Sophomores and two Freshmen. What they accomplished this season, AFTER losing Trautwine, then losing two other pitchers and having only two arms most of the season is incredible to me. Now a very young team gets to taste the next level with a coach that knows what he’s doing and sits on the opportunity to build a major force in this sport. I’ve always felt that due to our location we could become the next LaLa. Is it possible we are well on our way? it’s All Good And All Green(well, black uni’s for softball, but whatever works for now). Rick
  11. GM is the basketball coach, not the director of communications for men’s basketball. I imagine most coaches can’t currently discuss the players they are recruiting. Maybe direct your questions about communications Here. Otherwise you could ask him yourself this summer at one of the coaches events. He’s extremely nice & approachable. In the mean time at this point, considering he’s reversed one of the worst, most embarrassing programs in history to become its greatest in such a short time I could give two shits what he thinks, says or does. He’s earned national respect of 99% of everyone else in college basketball that he actually knows what he’s doing. That’s more than good enough for me. Rick
