  1. Oh my God! That's the funniest thing I've heard in a long time......😁
  2. Section 105. I saw a few Honey Bees.
  3. Folks, this current version of the Green Brigade is what I've been begging-griping-pleading about for at least 15 years....if not longer. They have ENERGY, ENTHUSIASM, AND (believe it or not) REAL SCHOOL SPIRIT!!! I still think that 450 members is a bit unwieldy, and their march around before the game is not much of an improvement from the previous bands, but they have surprised me with their on-field marching/movement. They are still early in their (new) development, but as most college coaches would say they are "still making adjustments". Well done Fessor Cook! NOW if the cheerleaders would/could just get their shit together.
  4. If anyone thinks that anyone other than a socially awkward NT student who has too much time on his/her hands regards this as cool, then you are a fool. Since I was in High School in the late 60's North Texas has had a reputation as (with apologies to the Christmas Rudolph cartoon) the Island of socially misfit students. Before I enrolled at NT someone asked me where I was going. And when I said NT, they said "so, your going to school with all those weirdos?" And something like trotting out someone in a Albino Squirrel costume during a football game only confirms that negative image. Let me clue-in all the "quirky people" out there about the reality of "perception". I'm as fond of whimsy as anyone, but I know that the doers of the world tend to gravitate to schools and organizations etc that take themselves seriously. In High School these people were generally involved in organizations that promoted school spirit, did things for the community, and got involved in things like the student counsel etc. These are the people that when they graduate from from College they go out and start their own businesses and/or go up the ladder in big companies. They tend to come back to their Alma Mater and DONATE and start scholarships etc. They don't gravitate to schools that allow school spirit/traditions to be trivialized by quirk and whimsy. And serious athletes don't either. They tend to choose other schools over us.....sometimes even smaller schools in smaller classifications. SO LOSE THE DAMN SQUIRREL COSTUME........ESPECIALLY AT ALL OF OUR SPORTING EVENTS. If you have some fond memories of an albino squirrel (which has already been shown as NOT being unique to North Texas) that you spotted whilst studying for an important exam that you passed, then let the costumed misfit make an appearance in the Library or where ever students gather to study. My guess is that the serious students will chase him/her away.
  5. My friends and i had lots of fun in college that had nothing to do with the official imagery of the sports teams. And we didn't even think of trying to incorporate it into the sports imagery,.....
  6. The only uni I want them to feature is the "whop-ass-and-take-names-uni"
  7. FFR and I once produced a t-shirt that featured a more close up version of this photo........ The image mainly featured the eyes and the beak just below the nostrils. The message was THE EYES OF NORTH TEXAS ARE UPON YOU". We completely sold out of them. This one might work just as well, with the same message but with a NT Battle flag in the background.
  8. This would be a good candidate for the "faded/weathered" look.
  9. .....and we lost all of them. Let me be a bit more graffic and somewhat crude. We just lost the first bowl (vs Army) under SL. In the last two, we were bent over a chair and......well....use your imagination. And the same humiliating thing happened with our two important conference games with FAU. Come to think of it, the same thing happened with our game at UTEP right before our first Bowl invite........UTEP forgodsakes!
  10. I'll agree with this statement when I see us win games that really mean something.........on a consistent basis. Here is the record so far. We have yet to win a bowl game under SL. We have yet to win any regular games of great importance on a regular basis. 2017 (9-5 record) was the best example. We got curb stomped twice by FAU. And then for good measure, we got brutalized by Troy in the NO bowl. SL started off barely losing to Army in his first bowl here, and the subsequent bowl results are getting worse. 2018-North Texas (CUSA) 9/1 vs. Southern Methodist (5-7) W 46 23 9/8 vs. Incarnate Word (non-IA) W 58 16 9/15 @ Arkansas (2-10) W 44 17 9/22 @ Liberty (6-6) W 47 7 9/29 vs. *Louisiana Tech (8-5) L 27 29 10/6 @ *Texas-El Paso (1-11) W 27 24 10/13 vs. *Southern Mississippi (6-5) W 30 7 10/20 @ *Alabama-Birmingham (11-3) L 21 29 10/27 vs. *Rice (2-11) W 41 17 11/10 @ *Old Dominion (4-8) L 31 34 11/15 vs. *Florida Atlantic (5-7) W 41 38 11/24 @ *Texas-San Antonio (3-9) W 24 21 12/15 vs. Utah State (11-2) L 13 52 @ Albuquerque, NM New Mexico Bowl 9-4-0 450 314 2017-North Texas (CUSA) 9/2 vs. Lamar (non-IA) W 59 14 9/9 @ Southern Methodist (7-6) L 32 54 9/16 @ Iowa (8-5) L 14 31 9/23 vs. *Alabama-Birmingham (8-5) W 46 43 9/30 @ *Southern Mississippi (8-5) W 43 28 10/14 vs. *Texas-San Antonio (6-5) W 29 26 10/21 @ *Florida Atlantic (11-3) L 31 69 10/28 vs. *Old Dominion (5-7) W 45 38 11/4 @ *Louisiana Tech (7-6) W 24 23 11/11 vs. *Texas-El Paso (0-12) W 45 10 11/18 vs. Army (10-3) W 52 49 11/25 @ *Rice (1-11) W 30 14 12/2 vs. *Florida Atlantic (11-3) L 17 41 @ Boca Raton, FL CUSA Championship 12/16 vs. Troy (11-2) L 30 50 @ New Orleans, LA New Orleans Bowl 9-5-0 497 490 2016-North Texas (CUSA) 9/3 vs. Southern Methodist (5-7) L 21 34 9/10 vs. Bethune-Cookman (non-IA) W 41 20 9/17 @ Florida (9-4) L 0 32 9/24 @ *Rice (3-9) W 42 35 10/1 vs. *Middle Tennessee State (8-5) L 13 30 10/8 vs. *Marshall (3-9) W 38 21 10/22 @ Army (8-5) W 35 18 10/29 @ *Texas-San Antonio (6-7) L 17 31 11/5 vs. *Louisiana Tech (9-5) L 24 45 11/12 @ *Western Kentucky (11-3) L 7 45 11/19 vs. *Southern Mississippi (7-6) W 29 23 11/26 @ *Texas-El Paso (4-8) L 24 52 12/27 vs. Army (8-5) L 31 38 @ Dallas, TX Heart of Dallas Bowl 5-8-0 322 424
  11. Also one of my favorites. This Scrappy and the one I posted share one characteristic.........they both have ATTITUDE. I also like the battle flag, but it needs to be a flying flag. It would also look pretty good with a slightly faded-antique look and a little tattered. You know, like it's actually survived a lot of conflict.
  12. From the 50's/60's. The first cartoon Scrappy. Legend has it that it was drawn by the legendary Bill McClanahan.
  13. ......but only if we had anticipated that the OL would be better next year.
  14. THEY? I am assuming that you are an Alumni and fan. And if so, then we can start by having our alumni/fans always use "we", "us", and "ours" whilst making reference to OUR program. Most fans of other programs almost always use ownership words/phrases when referring to their school and it's programs. The next thing I would suggest is that we look at how these guys run their program. 2018-Louisiana Tech (CUSA) 9/1 @ South Alabama (3-9) W 30 26 9/8 vs. Southern (non-IA) W 54 17 9/22 @ Louisiana State (10-3) L 21 38 9/29 @ *North Texas (9-4) W 29 27 10/6 vs. *Alabama-Birmingham (11-3) L 7 28 10/13 @ *Texas-San Antonio (3-9) W 31 3 10/20 vs. *Texas-El Paso (1-11) W 31 24 10/26 @ *Florida Atlantic (5-7) W 21 13 11/3 @ Mississippi State (8-5) L 3 45 11/10 vs. *Rice (2-11) W 28 13 11/17 @ *Southern Mississippi (6-5) L 20 21 11/24 vs. *Western Kentucky (3-9) L 15 30 12/22 vs. Hawaii (8-6) W 31 14 @ Honolulu, HI Hawaii Bowl 8-5-0 321 299 2017-Louisiana Tech (CUSA) 9/2 vs. Northwestern State (non-IA) W 52 24 9/9 vs. Mississippi State (9-4) L 21 57 9/16 @ *Western Kentucky (6-7) W 23 22 9/23 @ South Carolina (9-4) L 16 17 9/30 vs. South Alabama (4-8) W 34 16 10/7 @ *Alabama-Birmingham (8-5) L 22 23 10/21 vs. *Southern Mississippi (8-5) L 27 34 10/28 @ *Rice (1-11) W 42 28 11/4 vs. *North Texas (9-5) L 23 24 11/11 vs. *Florida Atlantic (11-3) L 23 48 11/18 @ *Texas-El Paso (0-12) W 42 21 11/25 vs. *Texas-San Antonio (6-5) W 20 6 12/20 vs. Southern Methodist (7-6) W 51 10 @ Dallas, TX Frisco Bowl 7-6-0 396 330 2016-Louisiana Tech (CUSA) 9/3 @ Arkansas (7-6) L 20 21 9/10 vs. South Carolina State (non-IA) W 53 24 9/17 @ Texas Tech (5-7) L 45 59 9/24 @ *Middle Tennessee State (8-5) L 34 38 10/1 vs. *Texas-El Paso (4-8) W 28 7 10/6 vs. *Western Kentucky (11-3) W 55 52 10/15 vs. Massachusetts (2-10) W 56 28 @ Foxboro, MA 10/22 @ *Florida International (4-8) W 44 24 10/29 vs. *Rice (3-9) W 61 16 11/5 @ *North Texas (5-8) W 45 24 11/12 vs. *Texas-San Antonio (6-7) W 63 35 11/25 @ *Southern Mississippi (7-6) L 24 39 12/3 vs. *Western Kentucky (11-3) L 44 58 @ Bowling Green, KY CUSA Championship 12/23 vs. Navy (9-5) W 48 45 @ Fort Worth, TX Armed Forces Bowl 9-5-0 620 470 2015-Louisiana Tech (CUSA) 9/5 vs. Southern (non-IA) W 62 15 9/10 @ *Western Kentucky (12-2) L 38 41 9/19 @ Kansas State (6-7) L 33 39 9/26 vs. *Florida International (5-7) W 27 17 10/3 vs. Louisiana-Lafayette (4-8) W 43 14 10/10 @ *Texas-San Antonio (3-9) W 34 31 10/17 @ Mississippi State (9-4) L 20 45 10/24 vs. *Middle Tennessee State (7-6) W 45 16 10/30 @ *Rice (5-7) W 42 17 11/7 vs. *North Texas (1-11) W 56 13 11/21 @ *Texas-El Paso (5-7) W 17 15 11/28 vs. *Southern Mississippi (9-5) L 24 58 12/19 vs. Arkansas State (9-4) W 47 28 @ New Orleans, LA New Orleans Bowl 9-4-0 488 349 2014-Louisiana Tech (CUSA) 8/30 @ Oklahoma (8-5) L 16 48 9/6 @ Louisiana-Lafayette (9-4) W 48 20 9/11 @ *North Texas (4-8) W 42 21 9/20 vs. Northwestern State (non-IA) L 27 30 9/27 @ Auburn (8-5) L 17 45 10/4 vs. *Texas-El Paso (7-6) W 55 3 10/18 vs. *Texas-San Antonio (4-8) W 27 20 10/25 @ *Southern Mississippi (3-9) W 31 20 11/1 vs. *Western Kentucky (8-5) W 59 10 11/8 @ *Alabama-Birmingham (6-6) W 40 24 11/22 @ *Old Dominion (6-6) L 27 30 11/29 vs. *Rice (8-5) W 76 31 12/6 vs. *Marshall (13-1) L 23 26 @ Huntington, WV CUSA Championship 12/26 vs. Illinois (6-7) W 35 18 @ Dallas, TX Heart of Dallas Bowl 9-5-0 523 346 2013-Louisiana Tech (CUSA) 8/31 @ North Carolina State (3-9) L 14 40 9/7 vs. Lamar (non-IA) W 27 14 9/12 vs. *Tulane (7-6) L 15 24 9/21 @ Kansas (3-9) L 10 13 9/28 vs. Army (3-9) L 16 35 @ Dallas, TX 10/5 @ *Texas-El Paso (2-10) W 38 35 10/19 vs. *North Texas (9-4) L 13 28 10/26 @ *Florida International (1-11) W 23 7 11/9 vs. *Southern Mississippi (1-11) W 36 13 11/16 @ *Rice (10-4) L 14 52 11/23 vs. *Tulsa (3-9) L 14 24 11/30 @ *Texas-San Antonio (7-5) L 10 30 4-8-0 230 315 Since joining CUSA these guys have only had one losing season, they have only lost to us twice, they have played in two championship games, and they have won every bowl game that they have attended. They have pretty good facilities but not nearly as nice as ours. They are located in a pretty rural setting and the town is a very nice small college town. The closest big time entertainment is Shreveport. So, how do they consistently out recruit us? Do they pay their coaches more than we do? Or do they just do a better job of hiring coaches?
