  1. https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketball-men/d1/ncaa-mens-basketball-net-rankings Looks like we were at #26 last week before our close calls with some bad teams.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    School record is 24 wins. Regular season record is 22.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    Man. I don’t like the way we play with fire but even if this team isn’t as good as its record shows, 17-2 (5-1) is still solid

    Rice (1/19/19)

    We haven’t been a good offensive team all year

    QB Cade Pearson intends to transfer

    Yes but it is concerning that all four of Fine’s backups (including Aune) will be freshmen. Both from an experience standpoint and, more importantly, once one of them is named the starter then the rest will all likely transfer because of how close they are in terms of grade classification.

    ‘20 WR/RB Will Nixon - Waco Midway

    Maybe you’re thinking of GMG24. I have seen him trying to get posters to create these threads with uniformity. Methods don’t have to be precisely congruent as long as the important stuff is in there

    ‘20 WR/RB Will Nixon - Waco Midway

    I never told you to do it that way. The way that Cerebus and I decided on doing it years ago was, in example, as follows: ’20 Wide Receiver William Nixon (Waco Midway) Year, followed by position, followed by name, followed by school name as it would appear in official standings (in parentheses). Year should have the apostrophe before the digits since we’re not saying they’re 20 feet tall, and position can be athlete if you’re unsure, and school name should be in parentheses. Over the last few years we haven’t really had consistency in these thread titles and so many people are creating them it seems like too tall a task to get everyone back on the same page, even if we pinned the format. I’m not gonna be a stickler about.
  8. There were two crystal ball predictions from right before he committed in a November.

    Texas San Antonio (1/12/19)

    Damn. Terrible way to lose. Maybe they’ll realize you can’t wait to get going offensively until after the other team has

    Texas San Antonio (1/12/19)

    Offense really hasn’t looked that different from last regular season. Hope they don’t wait until the CBI to pick it up again
  11. I made a comparison between the last seasons of each of the previous basketball and football coaches compared to the seasons that their successors are currently having. They already have 21 more wins than the teams that preceded their first season, and almost twice as many conference wins with still 27 conference games left this regular season between both basketball teams. Football finished last in the division in 2015, and the last basketball teams of Peterson and Benford failed to reach the CUSA Tourney. I know McCarney didn’t coach the entire 2015 season but he was still the last head coach (without the interim title) before Littrell.

    1-11-19: ESPN has UNT as 11th seed in Tourney

    Team Rankings shows 6 seed as the highest seed that we have a possibility of obtaining. Realistically I’m just hoping we can put ourselves in position to get a 10-12 seed if we win the CUSA tournament. Just want to see us in a winnable game in the round of 64.

    Where do you stand in this poll? Not really applicable for out of staters.

    1-11-19: ESPN has UNT as 11th seed in Tourney

    No but a 12 seed beats a 5 seed every year. Only eight 15 seeds have ever beaten 2 seeds, and 15 seed is the best we have ever been. Just want us to have a winnable game instead of stuck playing one of the top 8 teams like in previous years.

    UNT NET Ranking Tracker - 2018/2019

    1-2 start from ODU and La Tech falling to Rice last Saturday have pushed both down to where we are almost the only top 100 team in CUSA. ODU just in at 96

    Football and Basketball Turnarounds

    Yup. RV was let go as soon as the school year ended. Smatresk knew he wouldn’t be retaining RV at that point, so there was no way he was letting a lame duck AD make the hire of the highest paid employee of the university. Smatresk has already admitted that RV wanted Meacham but it wasn’t his hire to make. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.star-telegram.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/mac-engel/article218537150.html Also, the Jalie hire fell right into RV’s lap. The school’s all-time leading scorer, who was brought in by a coach he didn’t hire, was ready to be a Division I head coach and wanted to come back while we had an opening. It wasn’t some under-the-radar hire that took huge amounts of research and diligence to uncover.

    Texas San Antonio (1/12/19)

    That last game before conference play may have been a win, but it was only by 3 points against a Division II School. Wouldn’t include that game as evidence of a good stretch.

    Texas San Antonio (1/12/19)

    UTSA seems to be have turned it on since CUSA play started. Looking forward to this one

    UTEP (1/10/19)

    Agreed. He did his homework and was giving perspective from both sides, not just the hometeam. Wish every broadcast had a guy like that. Instead we usually get guys who whine when foul calls don’t go their way and act shocked that their team can’t score against us.

    UTEP (1/10/19)

    Clutch by Mo. I liked the looks we were getting in the second half when we weren’t turning it over. Huge game Saturday.

    I thought it was just some random speculative tweet

    UTEP (1/10/19)

    Arikawe looks lost out there, on both ends

    UTEP (1/10/19)

    We’ve been downright bad offensively since the early run against La Tech
