  1. I still remember when at Alabama 6-7 years ago we took our first posession all the way down the field and went wide left on the FG attempt....I caught the ball...
  2. I don't think it's so much the condition of the stadium/weather as it is resources/logistics. There is always a Huge police presence around their stadium and traffic is very heavy. The police/highway patrol are busy with other things and probably will be for a few days. If they have it, I bet they discourage tailgating before and after the game like they did a few years ago in a similar situation.
  3. In this gremlin plagued podcast, we discuss the matchup with LSU and the start of the 2012 season Direct Link iTunes Podcast Link

  13. I've never been a fan of bumper stickers, and so for the last 10 years or so I have had a handful of different North Texas college plate designs attached to my sleds. Starting with the first which was a picture of the Tower, it later changed to the star with the eagle. The SOW logo popped up a few years back. Most of the college plates were the same with a smallish logo on the left Myplates.com, the license plate contractor for TXDOT has been tricking up the designs lately and adding quite a few new ones. They newer college plates they are moving to more solid colors with some like the TEXAS plates are a bit over the top. My wife decided not to renew hers because she didn't want a huge longhorn or a solid orange plate. The other day on the official athletics site, I saw a "North Texas Plates" link. I clicked it and it didn't work. I couldn't find the North Texas plates by going to their site either. I called to ask if there was a redesign and sure enough, they had been taken down because they are in the process of being replaced with a newer design which i pictured below. So if you have been looking for a great way to support the mean green without a sticker, here's your chance. They couldn't tell me when they would be available, but it could be a few days or weeks. For those with the old plates, you will have to see if you are eligible for an upgrade. They are like cell phones and every few years you can get new ones. They run about $55 a year with a portion going to the university. Of course if you'd rather not, there is a plate for Freebirds Burritos too.

  16. I took the picture yesterday. I was at a meeting at Valley Ranch. The Rookies had just left when I took this, so I didnt see Lance.
  17. Since there have been a few posts of late from the "more seasoned" mean green fans, I thought it was time to pull this out. Now I was 4 when this happened, so I'm sure plenty out there will want to add their own two cents. Have we had a string of bad luck calls and too many near misses...yes...but the fact that we have any history at all is great. As I sat at the Conference USA press conference reading the school profiles, I realized that schools like UTSA and FIU have very little history or famous alums that they can hang their hat on. They'd love to have a "one that got away" against Arkansas, Texas, Florida State, or even a Coke Commercial with a kid a jersey and a NFL legend.......We do and I'm glad.... So here it is.....

  20. He went on to say, “I was impressed with the number of alumni that came to our game and alumni support is no small matter to me”. He was referring to the nearly 10,000 NT fans that made the trip to Austin to see NT lose by three points. In early 1977 North Texas was making a push for the Southwest Conference led by Director of Athletics Hayden Fry. Coming off of 7-5 in 1975, and 7-6 in 1976, North Texas was poised to have its best season ever in the fall of 1977 that ultimately led to a 10-1 record. The basketball team led by Bill Blakely was also flying high coming off a first and only national ranking in 1976. Things were looking good. North Texas had gone Independent in 1975 leaving The Missouri Valley Conference starting its push to bigger and better things…..The SWC. Hayden Fry had turned a program around. Wins at Tennesee, SMU (1977), and near misses against Texas and Florida state had the program proudly perched. The flying worm helmets and Kawasaki green uniforms are fondly remembered by alums that were around during those glory years. So what happened? Concerns among SWC members over too many conference games played a part (The NCAA was at that time considering adding the 12th game). Pat Truly From the Star Telegram wrote in his column that The SWC was a 7 member conference that was stable for years, but bowed to political pressure by bringing in the west Texas factor (Texas Tech). Houston was also admitted in 1971 but only after a courtship that lasted nearly two decades. Revenue sharing was also mentioned, but in most people’s minds in was the politics. Houston and Tech were admitted after having support of big names like LBJ and John Connolly. North Texas just didn’t have any good old boy sponsors in the capital, and If none of the other schools were looking to sponsor North Texas, NT was going nowhere. Most know what happened next. After a 10-1 season in 1977 and a very respectable 9-2 record in 1978, Hayden Fry moved on to greener pastures. The school moved back to 1-AA and in 1982 joined the Southland conference. In a matter of 5 years things went down hill and it took almost 20 years to recover. I’m sure plenty here will add their thoughts and memories.
