    It seems we always get the plus. Just goes to show you....respect isn't given...it's earned.

    Actually, I think this shows just the opposite… many of those teams on the networks are just being given that treatment by virtue of the name, conference, or tier 1 rights. None of those are necessarily earned, at least down to the individual schools.

    An FBS program currently can have a head coach, ten on-field assistant coaches, four on-field graduate assistants and five strength coaches. There is already no maximum for the off-field staffs allowed, which includes people like operations administrators, analysts and recruiting personnel.

    * Side note - Several of the Mega-money P5s are pushing (and will eventually get it) no limits to the size of staffs.

    These numbers are also officially changing within the next 18 months as part or consequence of the NCAA Transformation Committee. I recommend folks listen to the Extra Points podcast.

  3. Goddammit, NO. This whole thread is asinine.

    Patterson was let go from TCU not only for the on- and off-field issues but because he let the game pass him by and he's resentful of such – loud and publicly so. He couldn't evolve. He tried and failed to maintain the "rule-by-tyranny" kind of head coaching and that doesn't work in this long overdue era of player-empowerment. His decades of success are more than valid, but he actively shot himself in the foot over and again across the last few years. No, thank you.

    I want we – UNT and the royal we – to stop chasing the past glory of other institutions. I want UNT to actively, creatively, and strategically create its own glory; set for what the game is now and adaptive to what's to come.

  4. Hey hey, ya'll. Long time, no see.

    In case this has not been referenced here, before, I recently learned of Athletic Director U's Conference Power Index from Matt Brown and the Going For Two podcast. It essentially is a comprehensive survey ranking programs and athletic departments across conferences rooted in perceptions by peers.


    It’s imperative to note the Athletic Department Power Index is not intended or developed to analyze the performance or potential of the current Athletic Director at the respective institutions. Rather, it is an assessment of the opportunity generally through the eyes of both peers and aspirants to the position were it to become available.

    Here is the most recent Power Index for Conference USA: https://athleticdirectoru.com/articles/athletic-department-power-index-conference-usa/ I think ya'll will be most pleased with these results.

    Even further, there are broader comparisons available through the partner program Athlete Viewpoint: https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/athleteviewpoint/viz/AthleticDepartmentRanking/SchoolComparison Here, you can select multiple conferences at once. Knowing that these rankings are built from respondents both within and external to CUSA, I find the meshing of ours and the AAC listings particularly delightful.


    TL;DR: the national perception within the industry is that we're doing a lot of things well.
