  1. They're underpaid, plain and simple. Their job is to play football and if they want to sit out a game because of law of diminishing return, what ER or EE wouldn't skip that game. What about the fans, the fans should be upset with the system that makes players want to sit out because the current process is broken. The NCAA makes too much money for players to be put in this situation. Don't get upset with the players, these are 18-22 year old kids who have more riding on their future than the selfish fan who gets some bragging rights because their team won.
  2. This is a terrible analogy. Students spend years preparing for the NFL, not just 12 games. If there wasn't millions of dollars on the line, this would be a different story but that's not the case. Or better yet, how many of y'all would go to work for free because you want to help the company make more money? Please, just stop. Athletics is a business, everyone is making sure they're covering their own ass because no one else will save them.
  3. I thought college was to prepare you for your future not force you to make decisions based on capital gain for the University...
  4. Until the NCAA starts to pay players for their performance, this will be the new norm and it's not selfish. As everyone said, why don't coaches get this much heat?
  5. I have no idea but we have some pretty interesting degree choices as well. Still think it's a valid comparison to see if athletics helps grads get jobs like everyone is saying
  6. Please don't show facts, it feels good to say we need more money from students.
  7. I don't think employers are lining up to hire people from Boise State and Northen Illinois. I could be wrong but show me some facts that prove otherwise
  8. You are the most negative person I've met. I havent been on this board in months and maybe even and year and you still have nothing else better to do than complain on a message board...
  9. If you think spending $40-60m for high school stadiums an efficient use of tax payers dollars, then vote for it. But increasing tuition isn't in the best interest of the students long term financial health. Increasing taxes is easy, but the best increase efficiency by using what they have and find new ways to bring in revenue without putting that burden on someone else.
  10. So would everyone here vote "Yes" for increasing federal taxes, property taxes or creating a state tax? Students shouldnt pay more for athletics. I think everyone can agree that tuition is way too much and putting more debt on college students isnt the best solution for the students long term success. Just like no one wants to increase their taxes. $51 a semester sounds cheap now but lets add some interest over 10-20 years to that since most college students take out loans to pay for school.
  11. As I'm sub 30, I dont think it matters if we're UNT or North Texas... I mean, its basically the same... Better time could be spent elsewhere than changing just to change.
  12. “Generally speaking, mid-season coaching changes – other than making some fans happy – do more harm than good,” Baker said. “Less than five percent of coaching changes are made mid-season. It’s more destructive the constructive. It rarely greatly changes the trajectory of a season.” I guess he doesnt know about "Lock the Gate" Firing TD and having Chico as the interm was better for the program.
  13. This is the wrong former WKU coach, we need Darrin Horn.
  14. It is what it is, that's what happens when you have 4 straight losing seasons. I've looked past the crowd support. I know me personally, I don't want to travel to Denton from Dallas because of the traffic on 35; aint nobody got time for that. But more Denton locals should be able to support the team once they start winning again.
  15. I was pleasantly surprised how well we broadcast (stream) games compared to others in CUSA, we really have a great crew. I had a great viewing experience watching the game on the TV. I have the CUSA streaming package, I play it on my iPad and then use airplay to my Apple TV. You cant get better than Dave and Hank. Dave really calls a great game and Hank transitioned into the color commentator role nicely. I'd never thought I would have to compare TV crews but its not even close to how much better our TV crew is, some of those football games we watched were unwatchable. Finally, I'm liking the in-game product. The lights seem to only be on the court and the music seems to be better.
  16. They only mentioned CUSA coaching leaving due to their record, not because of getting poached.
  17. I'm quite sure SL was on no ones radar when we were first looking for a HC. I honestly didnt hear about him until @MeanGreenBreakdown tweeted about some random possibility and was like "who is Seth Littrell" All everyone was talking about is current OC's that were in the area, nothing about some OC in Chapel Hill... Just like no one is talking about some coach in Denton, TX. I thought Mainord would actually one of the first coaches that will probably leave. He's still on salary from UK, he's making around 275k and we're only paying him $75k.
  18. We'll just wait and see. Just don't be surprised when he's impressed some AD's in interviews.
