  1. My own preferences: White for home. Green for road. Black is okay for the occasional road game. Grey looks...bland.
  2. What is Shorter's injury this year? I know he missed much of last year with a leg injury, but I've never read anywhere that said what this year's injury is.
  3. We are in dire need of a QB, but also someone who can coach a QB and a passing game.
  4. Have you seen the box score from Liberty's loss to ULM? Willis threw three interceptions, and they lost to UL-Monroe! This game isn't even their worst of the year.
  5. I hate going for 2 unless the game is in the 4th quarter. Seems to come back and bite teams too much.
  6. Okay I just tuned into the game and see North Texas actually leading 14-7 in the first half?! I'm confused.
  7. Our defense is starting to remind me of last year's game against App St.
  8. Anyone else notice the stats site at MeanGreenStats.com is stuck? Someone reboot the server!
  9. I don't believe the sight line issues thing. I'd have to see that myself. I've never sat at the very tip top of the building before, but I've sat in the upper level, and I don't see a problem. As for costs, I'm sure Wren would prefer a new facility. Most executive managers like tearing down the previous guy's stuff and "putting his stamp on the place" with "new and improved" stuff. It looks good on their resume.
  10. Wasn't the lighting improved recently? If not, that's a really, really easy thing to fix in a building like this. Seating can also be changed out, as we've seen before. I went to a couple of games two years ago and sat about 4-5 rows up from the floor, and I don't recall feeling any more cramped than I do at most stadiums, and I'm a pretty portly guy. (You want skinny seats? Upper deck in the The Ballpark in Arlington/Globe Life Park. They're 2-3 inches skinnier than lower deck.) As for how the Super Pit looks on the outside, the recent change from the old brown wood up around the top part to the silver shiny stuff looks better, IMO, but it could still be better. I always liked the SP because it kind of reminded me of old Reunion Arena in Dallas. Both were flat on top, with a large square or rectangular "lid" that extends out over the side. Too bad they didn't copy RA more and use a dark glassy finish around the top and then add some green (or multicolor) LED lighting around the periphery of the top to light up on game days. Some other easy improvements. They need better exterior lighting for walking across NT Blvd to the parking lots. Last game I went to I noticed the large mast lights were mostly out. They should cut back the trees around the SP so they don't look so old and block the view. They could also reroute or submerge the power/phone lines along Ave. D just east of the SP. Those old wooden telephone poles and sagging lines don't exactly scream "modern" to anyone. Oh, and lastly, paint the damn top of the roof. Put a bit green "UNT" or SoW on it so when people are looking at Denton in Google Maps or Google Earth, they see it!
  11. Can someone please enumerate what exactly is so bad about the SuperPit as it currently exists? I'll grant you that it has a larger seating capacity than is needed for basketball only, but there are cheaper and more efficient ways of dealing with that than building a new facility. Other than the lack of luxury suites or boxes, I don't see the big deficiencies. And really, how much more $$ would luxury suites bring in anyway?
  12. Almost unbelievable. Thank you Mean Green! Because of you, two of my Purdue friends owe me beers!
  13. I feel a year older now than I was when this game started! Great game! Way to go, Mean Green!
  14. Nice game, but Hamlet is going to be tired tomorrow. Best game I've seen from McBride.
  15. I'm watching Stadium on my PC via Spectrum Cable and I'm not seeing many problems. It cut out once for about 20 seconds, then came back. Odd that they have commercial breaks with no commercials!
  16. UAB 65, UNT 61. I hate watching games that devolve into fouling and free throw contests, but that strategy worked better for UNT today than yesterday's 3-pt attempts. This team needs a few more outside shooters.
