  1. 19% from 3 and Woolridge played maybe his worst game of the year. Showed a lot of heart in the second half, but couldn't overcome the careless turnovers. Shake it off and lets go get 2 at the Pit.
  2. The AD has also been advertising our season ticket packages on tickers all day. http://www.meangreensports.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/082817aad.html Aug. 28, 2017 DENTON – North Texas athletics will host a live remote broadcast of The Ticket’s (1310 am/96.7 fm) morning show, The Musers, Wednesday, Aug. 30, from the Mean Green team store inside Apogee Stadium. The show, hosted by North Texas alums George Dunham and Craig Miller, as well as Ticket personality Gordon Keith, runs weekdays from 5:30 - 10 a.m. Wednesday’s show will feature interviews with North Texas head football coach Seth Littrell at 6:55 a.m. and Vice President and Director of Athletics, Wren Baker at 9:35 a.m. The Mean Green host Lamar in the 2017 season-opener Saturday, Sept. 2, at 6 p.m.
  3. TCU has done this for the last couple of seasons. It gives the stadium a pretty cool vibe when most people comply with it.
  4. https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/23/facebook-will-live-stream-over-a-dozen-college-football-games-this-year/ "Facebook wants you to watch more video on its site – including those you can’t see elsewhere. To that end, the social network earlier this month launched a dedicated section for original video, called Watch. Now that’s being expanded with the addition of live-streamed college football games, broadcast in partnership with sports network Stadium. The deal will bring 15 live college football games to Facebook, including nine Conference USA games and six Mountain West games. These games will be exclusively broadcast on Facebook, the company says, and will be available on the Stadium: Live College Football Show Page to users worldwide, as well as on Watch for U.S. users. Unlike games aired on traditional television, the games broadcast on Facebook will take advantage of the digital platform to introduce a number of interactive elements as part of the viewing experience. For example, they will include a live, curated chat from football personalities alongside the on-air presentation. Plus, a social team and other correspondents will work to engage the at-home audience in conversation." UNT vs LA Tech on November 4th will be 1 of the 9 CUSA games shown on the platform.
  5. Don't get me wrong, I wish Connor nothing but the best! The main difference is that Patterson and Snyder bring those guys in to play other positions from the get go. Typically when a player moves to his 3rd position in college that shows he may be athletic, but doesn't have enough skill at a specific position to stick. See Longhorn great Drew Kelson if you need a prime example of this. All that being said, I hope Connor succeeds at the new position. I'm just more afraid of what the move indicates for our linebacking core.
  6. Connor Means is at linebacker now? That speaks volumes about that lack of depth we have at that position.

  8. This is the experience I've had with non-North Texas people. When I moved into my current house, one of the first things I did was put the battle flag up. Several neighbors came by to introduce themselves, and all except one said something along the lines of "Is that flag for St Patrick's Day?" The only neighbor who knew what is was happened to be a La Tech alum who said he'd seen it up at Apogee before. I think flying the flag outside of stadium would be a great thing to help the general public realize that the flag is a North Texas symbol.
  9. http://www.meangreensports.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/061417aaa.html June 14, 2017 DENTON – The University of North Texas will be adding a new 120-foot tall flag pole located in between the black lot entrance and Apogee Stadium marquee along Interstate 35. Mean Green Athletics is launching VoteMeanGreen.com for fans to vote on the flag that will fly from the pole, coinciding with Flag Day, President Neal Smatresk and Vice President and director of athletics Wren Baker announced Wednesday. “We are very excited about this flag, which will be a source of pride for all UNT fans and graduates as well as a tremendous branding and awareness opportunity for our campus,” Baker said. “We thought it would be fun to let fans vote for their favorite design and I look forward to seeing the design our fans select.” Fans can rank their favorite flag designs from 1-4 and can only submit the form once. The voting period will be for one week, beginning Wednesday, June 14, and concluding Wednesday, June 21. The winning design will be announced on Twitter (@MeanGreenSports) Friday, June 23.
  10. Not a fan of him from his days at Texas. Also, his "amazing" recruiting ability may have something to do with the fact that he was violating NCAA rules...
  11. No shit. I know the interim doesn't come from outside of the program, but they get a raise to take on the extra duties. With one month left in a lost season it would be pointless to drop extra money on a team that won't win a single conference game. We'd be paying his remaining $100,000 that he's owed just to miss the last 8 games. The "we need to send a message" line is just a load of BS. It doesn't make a difference whether or not he's done on February 6th or March 4th. We've let him get to this point so we may as well see it out now and have him suffer with us. He should've been fired YEARS ago, but he wasn't. Why waste the extra money that would be given to an interim coach when it could be added to the new coaches salary, recruiting budget, facilities, etc. This department has to pinch every penny because of the mess RV created. It's 8 more games, deal with it.
  12. Exactly. The big donors don't care enough/don't think it's worth cutting a check to send Benford on his way (and they're right!). He's done after this year whether we fire him tonight or at the end of the year. No interim coach can turn this around, so why waste the money? Ride it out and start fresh in the fall. That's not a loser mentality, it's called the way it is at UNT. You want change, start giving real money!
  13. We. Don't. Have. Money. I don't know why people can't grasp this fact. You want change? Donate to the athletic department. And by donate, I mean dollar figures that will actually make a difference. Stop talking like you do and and actually do it for once. They don't have the funds to pay him his salary remaining salary and pay extra to an interim coach. The fact that y'all can't grasp this fact just speaks more and more to our school's reputation than anything else...
  14. The spring game should be a lot more entertaining this year.
  15. I can promise you that recruiting him wasn't to keep boosters happy. He was offered by the likes of Alabama, Arizona State, Oklahoma St, and a handful of other Power 5 schools. To the size point, the other quarterback they brought in that same class is the same size he is. And at that time Casey Pachall was their starting quarterback, who had almost identical measurables to Foster. For whatever reason the game just hasn't been able to click for him so far at this level. Scheme and/or lack of development are probably most likely to blame. I think he'd be worth taking a chance on if he's interested in coming here. I wonder if Harrell and Cumbie have been in contact about him.
  16. Being a Heights grad, I really wanted us to land Tariq. He's a good kid with great measurables. He's a lot like Rutherford in that the sky is the limit with the frame he has, it just comes down to if he can sure up some things at the next level. He sometimes had a hard time creating separation against the better competition, but I think that is something that can be fixed with good coaching at the next level. His motor has been questioned before, but every time I've seen him play it looks like he's going all out. I've heard that he was extremely excited after his visit to San Antonio, but I don't know if it had more to do with the coaches, the school, or the city.
  17. We got a winner. They have the same shirts listed on the Army page. http://www.fanatics.com/COLLEGE_Army_Black_Knights_Mens/pg/1/ps/72/so/newest_items
  18. Email Wren Baker or Ryan Peck and they will help you out. I donated a set of season tickets for basketball this season and they were extremely helpful throughout the process.
  19. I did go to the HOD bowl and had a good time at the game itself. We were out there tailgating starting at about 7 am. As soon as our crew started for the gates, the neighborhood's go getters started coming out and taking our stuff. This time I'm only bringing a cooler and some fold out chairs, if that! I'm extremely happy we're in a bowl game, but I don't expect a similar crowd to what we had in 2013. I say in the ballpark of 22,000-25,000 for attendance if the weather is nice.
  20. I'm glad we have a beatable opponent, but I was really hoping for the Armed Forces Bowl. It's a way better stadium and atmosphere than Fair Park. You don't have to worry about people stealing your tailgate stuff when you leave to go into the game. Also, by this time next year we will have played Army 3 times in the past 13 months...
  21. I figured. They're notorious for stealing kids from all over the mextroplex. They tried to pry A'Shawn Robinson away from Heights is sophomore year, but he came back to after about 2 weeks.
