  1. MACU had five players with two or more three's, including 10 of 16 in second half. NT had only two three's the whole game. Our best shooters graduated last year.
  2. From the 1968 Yucca (yearbook) describing the 1967 team: "They produced all this, and they produced a new name, the "Mean Green."
  3. Being picked second with no player on first or second team speaks well for overall team expectations. Rose stats dropped big time his sophomore year, and his third year may start with suspension for DWI. Given his second year stats and overall team strength, that may not hurt us too much.
  4. But not good enough for television!
  5. SMU had some success with short kickoffs to the corner against us, but it backfired when we tried that against Houston. No disrespect to Michael Lawrence and the other receivers, but we clearly miss the impact of Rico Bussey on offense. All that and more that can be said, I think everybody underestimated the motivation Houston had after blowing their game against Tulane nine days earlier and then watching two offensive leaders take the redshirts.
  6. https://tarletonsports.com/news/2019/9/30/general-tarleton-receives-ncaa-division-i-invitation.aspx Looks like joining WAC for olympic sports and becoming a Div 1 - FCS independent in football.
  7. Confirming, no radio show tonight. Announced at end of radio postgame broadcast Saturday night.
  8. While my "get on the record" prediction of 11-3 is still possible, it is hard to say probable with Rico out for the season. Now I see a serious challenge just to get bowl eligible. We need four more wins. MTSU, UTEP, and Rice need to be three of those wins. The other games are at USM (3-2, 1-0 beat UTEP), at Charlotte (2-3. 0-1 loss to FAU), at La Tech (4-1, 2-0 beat FIU and Rice), and regular season finale at home against UAB (3-1, 0-1, lost to WKU). The next game is always the most important, and the game at USM could be that other win we need to get us back on track. Conference USA does not look particularly strong this year, and I think we are capable of sweeping conference games to finish regular season 9-3. The team that was on the field Saturday is just as likely to finish 5-7.
  9. The 7:00 start in late September should mean student sections in shade when game starts.
  10. College Football News has us playing WV in First Responders on December 30 - played at SMU this year due to outdoor hockey in Cotton Bowl.
  11. Improved venue for the Birmingham Bowl game played at Legion Field.
  12. Section 119, row 12 Bought from UNT ticket office, picked up before ACU game. Email said you can pick up this week or will call at Ford. Interesting, section 122 is for SMU recent alumni. Guess those do not sell too well. Visitor sections are 117 thru 120 plus 218 and 219. If I had to guess, the band might be in 117-118.
  13. When we played at Texas a few years ago, it was cost-prohibitive to take the band. The Texas band showed a lot of sportsmanship and class by playing "Glory to the Green" as part of the pregame set. I wish the GB would do that for visiting teams. On the other side of the coin, we had our band ready to play the alma mater at SMU in 2017, and the SMU coordinator never give us time for that. BEAT SMU
