  1. I know a troll account when I see a troll account and that's a troll account. And yes, Big-Pac 12 consolidation is inevitable. More specifically, look for Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah to be Big 12 targets.
  2. For those of y'all wondering why UNT can't win anything. Posts like this are EXHIBIT A. Diehard fans with low standards. Going to a throwaway bowl game means NOTHING. At UH we fired TWO coaches who went 8-5 and to a bowl game. What UNT SHOULD be aiming for is a major bowl game an NY6 bowl. When UNT goes to the Peach, Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Cotton or Orange Bowl against a blueblood opponent THEN you can brag about a bowl game. Yes, Mason Fine broke records at UNT but let's not pretend like UNT quarterback records were exactly lofty anyway. That being said, Fine is out of eligibility and we live in a "What have you done for me lately?" kind of world. Littrell did not take the K-State job because he thought he would have better options next year. I guarantee you he regrets not taking it now. Also, I'm pretty sure Davis came back to UNT because he waited too late and didn't think he would get his transfer waiver approved. Lastly, the fact that you're bragging about beating a 2-10 Arkansas that went 0-8 in SEC play proves my point.
  3. I don't blame him. You can only get so far at UNT, A&M despite the cult fanbase, is a great place to improve as a football player. This is the reality for you Group of Five schools. Your best players will eventually want to be on a bigger stage against stronger opponents and that's something you simply cannot find at a G5 school no matter how much you may like it there. This is a Power Five ran football world. You have to get with the times or continue to be passed up and left behind. Maybe there could offer some good NILs deals for UNT players but honestly, who in Denton or even Dallas is actually going to step up to the plate for that?
  4. Arch had made it pretty clear he didn't want to go anywhere family had already attended so Ole Miss and Tennessee were already out early in the process. All I know is that while Holgerson has improved the defense, we gotta step our recruiting up even further since we actually have to play against Arch and the Longhorns.
  5. The CUSA we were in had Louisville, Cincinnati, Army, TCU, etc. I mean, you can only play whoever is on your schedule but UNT has a more uphill battle to get to a P5 conference.
  6. One thing UNT and Rice has in common is that they give coaches with numerous losing seasons a million chances. Scratch that two things in common, head coaches at both schools complain that it's hard to recruit. No, wait make that three things in common, nobody goes to the games because football doesn't for the school culture.
  7. I like how UNT fans have this weird, rabid unhealthy, one-sided obsession with SMU. Give it up, UNT has no in-state rival or any rival for that matter. Even UTSA's in-state rival is Texas State. SMU's rival always has been and always will be TCU. UH on the other hand, only thinks about SMU when there's a game against them that week.
  8. I trust UH's hiring track record when it comes to football and basketball coaches long before I will ever trust UNT's.
  9. Nick Saban? Jim Harbaugh? Dabo Sweeny? Vince Lombardi's reanimated corpse? Who is this "winner" that only you seem to know about?
  10. Spot on. I will also add that Tony Levine and Major Applewhite were both fired for going 8-5. Just having a winning record and going to a bowl isn't good enough. We also just started a med school as well. While we obviously have a College of Education and an Art College, they typically do not become future donors. STEM, business and other big money professions are what builds donors. UNT has the numbers and resources to succeed but the culture and the lack of competent leadership over the last 40 years is what holds them back.
  11. Yes, leave the 2nd most prestigious football league in the world for something they may not even be around in a year or two. Real smart decision.
  12. Don't forget the hype around Brock Berglund (good lord that was hilarious), Alec Morris and DeMarcus Smith.
  13. Wake me up when UNT has a transfer qb that doesnt flop.
