  2. Why can’t we just do a separate league like the LIV did with golf though? Seems like breaking off and refusing to play the power schools makes sense.
  3. I think if Morris can stay healthy he is the most important addition by far. I worry terribly about his backup though as Stone Earle leaving hurts badly. I feel they did the best they could with the oline having lost their very best player. D-Line is a hodge podge of guys who have potential but did not live up to it at another address. It does appear they are slowly moving away from the smaller, faster players on defense that Bennett coveted. I think the secondary could surprise some people. There is some talent there.

  6. https://www.ntdaily.com/news/harrison-keller-ceo-of-texas-board-for-higher-education-announced-as-universitys-sole-finalist-for/article_d9766b04-24ee-11ef-affc-5f0690f46485.html Today at the University System's Board of Regents meeting, Harrison Keller was announced as the sole finalist for the position of the University of North Texas' president. Keller, the Commissioner of Higher Education and CEO of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, would potentially replace current president Neal Smatresk in August. After at least 21 days following the announcement, the Board of Regents may decide to select Keller as the new president.
  7. I don’t think we could afford to buy out his contract after 2 years. But I agree, his hire has been highlighted by poor recruiting and mistakes.
  8. This is gross to me. Hope he chooses UNT but this list is just silly and over the top woth a jet plane??
  9. Totally agree. Morris has been a big disappointment. Ever since the Cal game. He really blew that one.
  10. Good to hear. Hope he cares about athletics.
  11. I would hope they give him another shot if he indeed wants to return.
  12. In Mississippi, for instance, university and collective leaders led a campaign this spring to change their state statute to permit such a move. In Missouri, a state law has existed for more than a year permitting the school’s collective to receive institution funds for distribution to athletes. Other states, as well as the collectives within those states, are marching toward a similar goal, said Walker Jones, a former agent and apparel executive who leads the Ole Miss collective, The Grove. On July 1, The Grove will transition from a booster-funded collective to a school-financed third-party agency. “Our major gift donors will be thrilled to death with it,” Jones said. “Now, the money, instead of only coming from John Doe’s pocket, also comes from the university. We then go hunt out deals for the athletes and get them active in the community to satisfy [NIL agreements].” Hibbs says this method is “the best of both worlds.” In this new model, funding for a roster would mostly move within the university, where donors receive tax deductions and priority points for required donations as part of their football season ticket packages — not the case with collectives. link: https://sports.yahoo.com/the-next-evolution-of-nil-collectives-and-the-battles-that-await-this-is-a-big-inflection-point-120051261.html
  13. In the new NIL era how should UNT athletics be focused?
