  1. Ross has done an excellent job. I really wish he had convinced Scott and Jones to stay where they could start, compete and win. Trying to be Excited for the season but already dreading the end as it just isn’t what it use to be.

    What part is the biggest drop in awhile?

    I know quite a few people who have not renewed their season tickets. Including some who have emailed the AD to let them know the direction of college sports with the NIL and the portal as the reason. Many feel of the players aren’t loyal why should they be. Especially if they are going to be season ticket holders or donate 10k-50k to the university a year. Losing people who have supported programs for decades and apathetic college students isn’t good for the future.

  3. Put these guys around Jones and Scott who graduate and ride out together into the pros. That was the ending we needed. Still hard to get excited about any of this. Hopefully students show up as season ticket holders are sadly not coming back for sports. Probably the biggest drop off we have had in a while 😕

    It is truly sad to see many of our best posters come on here and try to pretend that we should be ok with our best players leaving to go to other schools.   This system sucks and will ultimately kill college sports and I refuse to adjust my views on it,

    Most people agree. It’s why people are letting go of season tickets and not giving to athletics. Not just at UNT but at many other universities. I wish this trend would continue to all schools and kill off the NIL!

    Nothing will change my mind. They rather be like Lebron than Jordan (granted I hate he went to the wizards) and Kobe. This generation always wants theirs. Selfish and yes run away until they find it. Can’t ever grow where they are planted. That’s a fact for many and evidence by college athletics.

    I don't understand the move to New Mexico. That is a lateral move at best.

    Players these days like to run away. Keeps Blake away. They aren’t mentality prepared to actually compete. It’s easier to run away and try to get cash than be the best player on the court. That’s this generation. Run away and hide behind others while trying to get petty cash where they can.

  7. What a chump. Go kick rocks and lose on another team. At this point we can boo these traitors and boo the new guys. College sports is simply pathetic. Our “new guys” are pulling the same crap. Shut it down. Nothing to cheer for anymore.

    On the flip side my dad was mostly committed to unemployment but still bounced around in life... 3 wives, 3 countries. Anyways, I think your reasoning is, well, unreasonable but it's your opinion and you're entitled to it. I hope Massie does well here and in the post-UNT.

    I would like they stay where they started. One transfer and make that about one of 3 things.

    1. Family

    2. Competitive step up

    3. location 

     

    you get one move. Make it count. Better yet stay where you are. Maybe NILs need to be kept in accounts and only guaranteed if you stay in your original location. Paid out at the end unless  you leave or go pro in which case that account is forfeited. There are many reasonable solutions. Instead it’s the Wild West. Anarchy…. It’s ridiculous .

    It's his second. McNeese State for 2 seasons then Longwood now UNT. Do you hate him now?

    I thought I saw it was just long wood for three years. I stand corrected. Just another dude floating around never happy. These kids are going to struggle bouncing around out there in real life. 10 jobs 15 wife’s 20 countries…. I mean I guess whatever. That’s normal… just move move move move because it’s all about you all the time.

    Give you? 

    This player disrespected Longwood and shows no loyalty or commitment. And you're fine with it... . .   .   .     .

    ? I would like a 6’6” player like Jordan Williams who has more muscle. I don’t like transfers; however at least this is only his first. That’s why it’s tough but Jones and Scott could get a pass. Noland? Buggs? They are jokes. Bouncing around never happy. Don’t give me that ever. Sadly Walker did the same. That needs to end.

    A 6'6 guard is something NT isnt really accustomed to. We had a bunch of shorties making it rain before this. So this is pretty refreshing. Not hating on the guards of the past, but ya know what I mean lol.

    Give me that Jordan Williams frame! Maybe with some extra muscle on top.

    Are you kidding?   Indiana State lost their entire starting lineup and 3 others (8 total) to the portal.  There are plenty of other examples.   Saint Louis just lost  Bradley Ezewiro and Djordje Curcic. They already lost Gibson Jimerson, Sincere Parker, Cian Medley, Stef van Bussel and Abou Magassa to the portal.  Arkansas lost basically their entire team.  There are too many to post. 

     

    To be fair he said without a HC change.

    If SMU offered you $200,000 per year to come post on their fan board (Poneyfans.com) versus GoMeanGreen.com would you? What if LSU or someone else tops that by $50k the following year? In the business world, have you ever been offered substantially more to leave your employer? Or did you stay "loyal" to your company that may have hired you right out of college? It's unfortunate but these are the questions the kids have to make today. Playing and/or starting seems to be secondary. I think I would go get that paycheck my final year of eligibility.   

    We already have jobs. Don’t make that much but I would stoop to that just for extra cash. The people using these kids and whispering all that nonsense in their ears should be held accountable.

    As I said in an earlier post, it’s the AAU/Select mentality and that’s all most of these kids have ever known, so it’s hard to blame them.

    To be clear, I don’t blame the parents for this either; it’s the system.  At about 9 or 10 years old my son began playing Select baseball, not because we wanted to, but because the rec. league offered no competition at all.  If all the kids playing AA select would just play rec league, lots of people could save money because I assure, there’s nothing “select” about AA baseball.  A bunch of pretty good, but not great baseball players.
    Another example:  I have a friend with a 5th grader who is evidently a very good athlete.  He is currently playing select baseball and was approached about being on a travel basketball team at $800 for the Spring season (not his normal travel team). My friend told them they weren’t interested because they had already paid for baseball for the Spring.  A few days ago they get an email from the coach welcoming him to the basketball team.  They wanted him on the team badly enough that they waived the cost for him.  And this is in a small town, definitely much worse in Dallas, Houston, etc.

    Yes because like the NIL it’s not regulated. AAU ball is a joke…. Parents paying thousands to invest in their kids sports is a joke and pathetic. It should be a practice that’s ended. 20-30 years ago this wasn’t the case yet we still have plenty of athletes at the college and professional levels. The people at the top simply take advantage  at the AAU level.

    It is happening everywhere. Arkansas has ZERO scholarship players on their roster right now. 
    If you were a good college basketball player under the current rules, why wouldn't you jump in the portal every year and see what NIL offers you could get? 

    Because I would want to loyal and rely on myself and my team. I would want to prove people wrong. I would t want to be a coward hiding behind money and others. But I guess college athletics isn’t about competition anymore…..
