  1. I don't want to hear anyone saying we don't need our own basketball facility.
  2. B+ year for me. Lots of players to replace, new coach, new conference, lots of injuries. Hopefully we can find our rhythm as a team next year, and that we can up our caliber of recruiting. This is a very good league, and if we want to be at the top of it we need to win recruiting battles for sought after players.
  3. Allen is a junior? I thought he was a 5th year senior?
  4. I'm more interested how UTSA lands a 7ft-er with the year they had before?
  5. It's clear from so many close games this year that we just lack that little 10% to get us over the hump. Someone to put in a solid 6-8 points a game consistently. I don't know if that's another big since Sissoko had many games where he didn't get us anything, or another power forward with length that can drive, but we needed a little more consistency to make another run this year.
  6. To be fair replacing players like Perry and Huntsberry is very tough. It's one of those cliche things that say, "You can't coach clutch."
  7. He looked awful on the sideline. I was yelling at the tv to get him out of there.
  8. I loved the energy too, but I'd rather not be in games where I question if the refs are being paid off by the mob. 😂
  9. That block call on Walker with both feet set a good 3 seconds before contact was the most disgusting egregious call I have ever seen in basketball. It boggles the f-ing mind how that was not called a charge.
  10. A lot of dumb fouls by our guys, but a lot of them were minimal. Look at the stat sheet, I don't remember a game that had so many starters in foul trouble all year.
  11. We need to up our budget across the board, but particularly in basketball. According to this article we spent $3.5m https://www.collegefactual.com/colleges/university-of-north-texas/student-life/sports/ And this older article had us ranked around 130 https://www.three-man-weave.com/3mw/college-basketball-budgets-2022 The problem is we are well bellow the AAC's average budget of $5.5m. For reference Memphis' budget is $13.7m and USF's is $4.9m.
  12. Everyone voiced concerns of what would happen of NIL was approved. I don't think for a second that teams didn't know how this was going to go. They could have easily put restrictions and rules to prevent such a free for all system, and like you said the timing of changing the transfer rules seems just a tiiiiiiiny bit suspect right? The system in place now isn't some unforeseen consequence, it's the outcome they wanted.
  13. Next time you ask yourself that, think about this. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2024/03/01/after-loss-in-court-the-ncaa-is-pausing-investigations-into-third-party-nil-deals-with-athletes/72810794007/ Anytime they have tried to wrangle in NIL they have been unable to, due to the antitrust laws in this country. It's simply not possible to enforce rules that hinder a person's ability to be compensated. The big schools want it to be this way, they knew what this would bring. So can we collectively agree that the problem is not from a lack of trying from the NCAA?
  14. If they do break off for football I hope the NCAA immediately kicks them out for all sports. No more NCAA tournament or CWS.
  15. What's a foul? I can't be the only one who feels like they are going crazy right? You can't have your feet planted and hands in the air while the offensive player initiates contact? How are you supposed to defend anything?
  16. What's the story with the AC expansion? I thought they had a goal to start at the end of the 2023 FB season? This is definitely 1 area where we really need some improvement.
  17. You're welcome! Take it for what it's worth, but I've heard people say conferences added privates schools to hide contracts/payouts/anything else they didn't want public since they were not obligated to show public records. Again, take it as just a myth, it's just something I've heard quite a few times.
