  1. Mildly interesting...CBS Ranking as of Dec1, 2022:
  2. Excellent writing. Engaging, informative, fun (toting the rock), and on my side. Thanks so much!
  3. The selected day and time simply determines the audience that won't be watching.
  4. 10,000 steps and 10 pages of notes? It sounds like an archaeologist on a trek. Nope. That's ESPN's Molly McGrath during a single gameday on the sidelines, doing the job...and Chasing Mike Leach https://theathletic.com/3901449/2022/11/16/espn-molly-mcgrath/?source=targeted_email&campaign=5548881&email_login=rexhwinn%40gmail.com
  5. Welcome to the fold, gordo. There are a few of us on here who are pushing the eighth decade of life and believe me we've seen a lifetime of ups and downs but, we keep hanging on tight because of our appreciation and affection for our beloved North Texas. I hope you become a life long fan and devoted alum. Go Mean Green!
  6. Solid observation. Playing not to lose is always a bad strategy.
  7. USF’s replacement for Jeff Scott? Jason Candle, Ja’Juan Seider names to watch https://theathletic.com/3771884/2022/11/07/usf-coaching-candidates-jeff-scott/?source=freedailyemail&campaign=601983
  8. As stated above, this task can be handled with a simple digital remotely controlled switch from anywhere in the world. There is no physical reason for not lighting the tower for every athletic victory in every sport. Every time. So, that leaves us with the question: Why is this not done?
  9. 49ers’ John Lynch explains Jeff Wilson trade, says Elijah Mitchell is close to returning: "SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The 49ers never actively shopped locker room favorite Jeff Wilson Jr., general manager John Lynch said Tuesday. But when the Dolphins called last week with mild interest — then called back with more urgency Monday — the 49ers couldn’t turn down their ultimate offer, a fifth-round pick". https://theathletic.com/3753324/2022/11/01/49ers-jeff-wilson-trade-elijah-mitchell/?source=pulsenewsletter&campaign=5394422
  10. Excellent, Sir. Your nail-on-the-head satire is not wasted at my house as I'm sure it's equally appreciated round about... including Vito's place.
  11. I like Deion. I like his energy, his personality, and his chutzpah is over-he-top entertaining. He obviously knows football and has shown himself to be an extraordinary recruiter and capable coach. My gut however tells me he's not the right fit for North Texas. Although, if by some chance Deion should become our coach, I will be his biggest fan!
  12. Every Group of 5 conference race is wide-open, and we’re a week away from seeing if any G5 teams are in the first College Football Playoff rankings. I asked for your G5 questions and got a lot of good ones. Let’s get into it. Chris, last week The Athletic did midseason All-Americans for FBS overall, the transfer portal and freshmen. Can we get a quick G5 All-American team? — Louis S. I think I made a midseason All-G5 team in our first year of college football coverage in 2017, but we never brought it back. I saw this question got a number of likes and requests, so here you go. Quarterback was the toughest choice. Debate away. QB: Grayson McCall (Coastal Carolina) RB: DeWayne McBride (UAB) RB: Khalan Laborn (Marshall) WR: Ali Jennings III (Old Dominion) WR: Rashee Rice (SMU) TE: Griffin Hebert (Louisiana Tech) OL: Air Force (Not going to pretend I know enough about individual OL play) DL: Jose Ramirez (Eastern Michigan) DL: Viliami Fehoko (San Jose State) DL: T.J. Jackson (Troy) DL: Thomas Incoom (Central Michigan) LB: Ivan Pace Jr. (Cincinnati) LB: Jason Henderson (Old Dominion) LB: Ezekiel Noa (Boise State) CB: Steven Gilmore (Marshall) CB: Quinyon Mitchell (Toledo) S: Bentlee Sanders (Nevada) S: Jack Howell (Colorado State) K: John Hoyland (Wyoming) P: Joe Doyle (Memphis) Ret: Eric Garror (Louisiana) https://theathletic.com/3732065/2022/10/26/mountain-west-group-of-5-football/?source=freedailyemail&campaign=601983
  13. I think Wren has already made his decision. He's just working the clock for the right moment when the stars align...the major donors, his bosses, the budget, and availability of new candidates to name a few.
  14. Excellent interviewer and interviewee. Grant McCasland is first class.
  15. Who’s next after Will Healy at Charlotte? Alex Atkins, Josh Gattis names to watch This article names several excellent prospects... https://theathletic.com/3721540/2022/10/23/will-healy-charlotte-football-coaching-candidates/?source=freedailyemail&campaign=601983
  16. Division I schools can expect to receive further NCAA rules guidance related to name, image and likeness activity as soon as next week, two sources on the subcommittee overseeing the process told The Athletic. The NIL subcommittee that issued updated guidance regarding the role of boosters and collectives in May is set to endorse its latest set of recommendations next week at a meeting of the D-I Board of Directors. The two sources, who agreed to discuss the group’s messaging before it was made public in exchange for anonymity, said that the board will meet both Tuesday and Wednesday and is expected to adopt guidance addressing which activities are permissible and impermissible when it comes to institutional involvement in NIL activity. The subcommittee’s work is just one of the topics expected to be on the agenda for the board. https://theathletic.com/3711601/2022/10/20/ncaa-nil-rules-guidance-boosters/?source=freedailyemail&campaign=601983
  17. Can anyone help me with TV or Streaming information on this weekend's game? I appreciate it.
  18. Just want to share this short clip of Deion Sanders... https://fb.watch/g80ofK6ucc/
  19. In my opinion, one of the most oft forgotten aspects of hiring a successful football coach is personality. How does this person relate to the students, the community, the area, the media? "Athletic directors have several responsibilities. They fundraise. They manage facilities. But nothing is more important than hiring coaches, especially for football. “College football is the economic engine that allows us to support all of our sports, minus men’s basketball,” said Hocutt, in his 11th year at Texas Tech. “And your football coach almost always is the most highly recognizable figure on your college campus, as well as within your community. To have a positive and authentic leader in that position is your top priority.” From the article, Keeping college football coaching searches secret: Mission (nearly) impossible for ADs https://theathletic.com/3654950/2022/10/12/college-football-coaching-search-firms-secret/?source=freedailyemail&campaign=601983
  20. Matt Rhule is now getting paid $40 million NOT to coach the Carolina Panthers.
