  1. Vito was sayiong about 4-5.
  2. THerein lies the irony. What happens to schools that are at the bottom of the major category? If you get rid of us who will they get to beat up on so their fanbase stays happy? I think the A&M's need schools like UNT to prop themselves on top of.
  3. I'm saddened to read this. Littrell may be a good man but he is acting somewhat naive. He needs to be the one stealing other players to better us. He may not be a good fit for an HFC in this new world order. We need more of a Jeff Trailor salesman type in our current situation.
  4. I don't know man, it is hard to fire a coach that qualifies for a bowl. Maybe there are some instances but not very many.
  5. I wonder how much money judy would have negotiated? Like maybe a 4th of what Aresco will get if that?
  6. Does this mean we would go in sooner? If so I'm good with it but all the more reason to get football squared away quickly!
  7. Couldn't find the roster but you might be able to in the wayback machine. I did find this from 2002: https://web.archive.org/web/20020420072542/http://www.gomeangreen.com/article.php?sid=134&mode=thread&order=0
  8. Nice recruiting win over Gardner Webb’s
  9. Jordan Addison had yet to enter the portal when ESPN reported Friday night that the All-American receiver was mulling the possibility of leaving Pittsburgh for USC. The scenario was apparently dire enough to Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi that he called Riley multiple times Friday to express his discontent. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh officials told ESPN and the Athletic they suspected USC had tampered with their star receiver. USC officials wouldn’t comment on the accusations. Addison has until Sunday to decide whether he’ll officially enter the transfer portal. If he does, the intrigue surrounding USC’s likely pursuit of the top receiver is sure to deepen further. The initial connection between Addison and USC, according to a person familiar with the situation not authorized to speak publicly about it, stems from a prior relationship with Caleb Williams, the Trojans new quarterback, who also hails from the Washington D.C. area. It’s not uncommon for other college football players to try and convince their peers to transfer. That, on its face, doesn’t constitute tampering. Similar accusations from fans across Oklahoma followed Williams on his way to USC. The sophomore quarterback entered the transfer portal a month after Riley left Oklahoma, only to join Riley at USC a month after that. Two other Sooners also followed, leaving many in the state upset with Riley’s transfer recruiting tactics. read more: https://news.yahoo.com/lincoln-riley-isnt-altering-transfer-025327735.html
  10. For some sports gamblers, betting on the Super Bowl coin toss is about as good as the odds can get. But for , Jim McIngvale the Houston furniture mogul known as “Mattress Mack,” placing multi-million-dollar wagers on the big game and other marquee sporting events offers a different strategy—heads I win, tails I win. For years, McIngvale, who owns the three-store chain Gallery Furniture, has made his headline-grabbing wagers not for gambling glory, but as sensible hedges against his big sales promotions. During the Super Bowl, March Madness, the World Series, and other events, Mack will place a giant bet on one team—either a Texas club or one closest geographically to his home state—and offer customers a full refund if they win. During this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, for example, he wagered $5.5 million on Kansas and ran a promotion to refund all customers who spent $3,000 or more on certain types of mattresses and furniture if the Jayhawks won. Right after Kansas beat the University of North Carolina on Monday night, Mack and his 20-person sales team received a stream of text messages from their customers: We won! We won! “When does a furniture salesman get a text at midnight from a customer?” McIngvale asks. One customer bought seven mattresses for a total of $38,000 and another bought $40,000 worth of furniture to outfit a new home. “I’ve always heard about his promotions on the news, but I never needed furniture until now,” says Robert Cruz, who has a new house full of new, free furniture. “When I heard the score I said, ‘Wow. That’s cool.” Read more: https://www.forbes.com/sites/willyakowicz/2022/04/06/mattress-mack-jim-mcingvale-sports-bets-march-madness-super-bowl/?sh=75b1d2eb5264
  11. AUSTIN — At least 1,100 college football players were registered in the NCAA transfer portal during the month of April, according to tracking data compiled by College Football Playoff partner SportSource analytics. That’s nearly a twofold increase from April 2019 (595), the first spring in which the new compliance system was active. The number was 1,037 last April, and as of this April 29 there were 1,102 players floating around looking for a new program. A handful of Longhorns joined that crush this week, too, just ahead of Sunday’s deadline to be eligible for the NCAA’s one-time transfer waiver. Too late and they’d have to sit out the entire academic year. read more: https://www.expressnews.com/sports/longhorns/article/Like-everyone-else-Texas-dealing-with-transfer-17137447.php
  12. I see your point @untjim1995 our hand is dealt we can’t change the cards. what in your opinion is our best play? Do we double down or fold em?
  13. Less than a month after he committed to Montana State, Kadren Johnson changed his commitment to North Texas. Johnson, a defensive lineman who previously played at Abilene Christian, announced his decision to join North Texas on social media Sunday, tweeting that he's "100% committed" to the Mean Green. He wrote the same thing in a since-deleted tweet when he committed to MSU on March 29. Johnson told 406mtsports.com Monday that he changed his commitment for a "family reason." He declined to go into further detail. Johnson signed a financial aid agreement with MSU shortly after he committed, according to MSU. Transfers don't sign national letters of intent, so they are not bound to their new school until they enroll.ext Up Johnson stands about 6-foot-4 and weighs around 250 pounds. The Texas native has spent his entire college career in his home state, starting at Navarro College before signing with Abilene Christian, which he attended the previous two years. MSU assistant defensive line coach Nick Jean-Baptiste held the same position at Navarro, a junior college, when Johnson played there in 2019. read more: https://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/sports/bobcats/football/montana-state-loses-transfer-kadren-johnson-to-north-texas/article_a42c20ac-6054-5343-854c-661cc8d52f3f.html
  14. Obviously programs like OU and Texas will do this on a different level. I am more concerned about programs in our AAC sphere like SMUt, Memphis, UAB and nUTSAck.
  15. Agreed but remember these reports are for C-USA and we are soon to be in the AAC. Much harder for us to compete like this in AAC as they have much better funded programs and NIL organizations.
  16. 247 says he only had one other offer from Missouri State.
