  1. Thanks for making this happen, Harry. I've largely been against collectives based on an assumption that at most schools they're simply handing kids cash and asking nothing of them off the field. Loved hearing RV's vision of using this to further develop these students' skills and community connections.
  2. Would be very tasty if Purple & Black win later setting up a rematch of the 2010 NCAA tournament game between Shannon Shorter and Jacob Pullen. No doubt Shorter would love a chance for revenge.
  3. NT sports has felt underserved for so long, I'm always eager to have new voices covering the goings on in Denton. Thanks for posting this.
  4. Since apparently The Tournament really tracks engagement and fan interest in teams applying for the event, I'm sure it couldn't hurt for us all to register on their site and fill out a bracket. The registration is free and includes designating Bleed Green as your favorite team. Link: https://bracket.thetournament.com/bracket
  5. Looks like our move to the AAC will perfectly align with the next EA video game for the sport. Glad the announcement came when it did to give developers plenty of time to get it right from the jump. According to the Extra Points newsletter ( https://www.extrapointsmb.com/ ) and the accompanying Going For Two podcast episode: I can't remember if previous editions used "Fly Like An Eagle" and I wonder if Steve Miller Band would nix that from being included, but I'd love to have that tune and Boomer as Apogee-specific elements introduced to the game.
  6. Wonder where he got that crutch phrase
  7. Starting to think admin needs to add a new "Big Game Boomer Tweets" forum
  8. Dare to dream... https://247sports.com/player/javien-toviano-46103147/
  9. Thanks for posting. Need regular reminders of how fortunate we were to have that guy as the face of our program while we did.
  10. What an important and probably underrated part of the story that is this program's revitalization. McBride, Bell, and Murray returning to Denton was so key. They didn't only stabilize the squad with rotation continuity but they led the new team into a force that I certainly didn't see coming. This season proved that last year wasn't a flash in the pan and McBride was critical to that. As with Reese, Gibson, and Woolridge before, I'll be tracking his next step and rooting for his success.
  11. Takeaway: Of course an 18-24 year old student is going to read what's posted online about them. Keep in mind while using this site.
  12. A good listen with some new insight about the program's approach on the court and recruiting trail. It's a good listen overall, but if you're only interest in McCasland, he joins around the 27min mark
  13. This is what jumped out to me. He feels very much at home in Denton. Whatever happens this spring, I'd love to be in position to make sure "staying home" has justifiable appeal. As he noted in the interview, the forthcoming move the the American helps.
  14. I should be embarrassed by how much I've played around with Torvik's "Teamcast" this year playing out various win/loss scenarios. Have fun... https://www.barttorvik.com/teamcast.php?team=North+Texas&year=2022
  15. Not sure I've seen someone get as low backing down his defender at T.Bell does. Puts them in such a bind when he enters a shooting motion because they're center of gravity is so far forward trying to hold position that Bell's able to initiate contact and force a foul call. Hope he pulls that FT shooting up toward his 70% last year.
  16. Always enjoy the info unpacked on these episodes but what I appreciate most is that you guys maintain a positive, supportive perspective - one that I think most on this board share even though sometimes the negativity gets more traction.
  17. Agree. The program didn't need a culture change, it needed a demolition of the existing culture and the building up of a new one from the ground up, McCasland was clearly the perfect man for the job.
  18. Boy, need to remember next time a look-a-like thread gets going for USM how much their commentator Larry Boyd looks and sounds like Woody Harrelson Boyd Harrelson
  19. Similar initial measurements to 9 year pro Mike Daniels
  20. I'm guessing if someone sees you reach into your jorts, they'll be very relieved that the next step involves torts.
  21. https://www.barttorvik.com/ Obviously, it's been a strange season for programs across the country and we're still dealing with a relatively small sample size but Bart Torvik's ratings system seems to think pretty highly of what our Mean Green have done thus far. Removing pre-season projections by changing the start date to 11/09/2021... #29 Overall #2 Mid-Major
  22. Always Be Recruiting. For the cost of $0 to the recruiting budget, Traylor gained additional, however slight, credit among coaches who were tuned in. Had Littrell don it, there would only be praise for the move on the board.
  23. For a team with so much high end roster turnover, the composure this squad plays with naturally points to incredible work by the coaching staff but I think it also highlights the work the players have put in with each other since the final whistle of the 'Nova game. The crazy thing about that 20-0 run is that nothing about it was fluky or irregular. There was no unconscious shooting display. No. It was just a sequencing of "do your job" defense and patient, "get our shot" offense. This team plays with a confidence that proves their buy in on the "toughest team wins" mantra.
  24. Not disagreeing that it would be great to have a rowdy and devoted crowd at the Super Pit but for comparison, I just glanced at a few recent CUSA home games to see how announced attendance stacked up... December 8, 2021 - Bluefield College at Marshall - Attendance: 3,738 December 4, 2021 - LSU Shreveport at North Texas - Attendance: 2,740 December 8, 2021 - Buffalo at WKU - Attendance: 2,689 December 11, 2021 - Louisiana at La Tech - Attendance: 2,603 December 12, 2021 - Millsaps Majors at UAB - Attendance: 2,578 December 8, 2021 - Palm Beach at FAU - Attendance: 1,045 December 1, 2021 - Florida Gulf Coast at FIU - Attendance: 446 Obviously, a tiny sample size and who knows how accurate these figures from ESPN are but it's more information that I had 10 mins ago.
