    Dickey to A & M

    I was a DD fan then. He could coach then and he can coach now. The AD and all the short sighted leadership at the University at that time are just as responsible for the Dickey's failed last season and the miserable seasons that followed. Happy for him wish it would it have worked out for him here. It will be particularly disappointing if he has a part in Texas A&M winning the SEC Championship cause that is the Texas region football fandom I dislike the most.

    DRC: Former Argyle QB Aune added to UNT's roster

    So that had me try to find his measurements. In one of the stories they listed him as 6-2 190 lbs. Hopefully he has grown a little for either the QB position or another position. When a player transitions from being a QB to another offensive position they usually bring a better understanding of how to makes route adjustments to help the QB.

    3 Years Ago: A QB Race

    How they could not find a decent QB out of that group and coach him I will never know. Greer made me walk out of Apogee in garbage time. When they put him in the game I said he was going to throw an interception. Well he proved me wrong for two plays by handing the ball off. The third play interception. That is when I knew the coaching staff had to go. The back up QB at Ryan or Denton High probably could have played just as poorly as that group. Still shocked that Conner Means couldn't get playing time at QB.

    Watching Party Location Change? (Collin County)

    I make only one or two of these a year. And hopefully I will be at one or two of these road games in person. But for my two cents I think a move would be fine. Fuzzy's isn't that great. Even if you don't settle on this place there should be better options than Fuzzy's. This menu is certainly an upgrade. However I am concerned about the live music conflict. I would not want you to get caught up in a tug-of-war if a special band wanted to do a set that conflicted with a game.
  5. It will be very interesting to see who takes over the starting QB position when Mason graduates. Now if we could get one of them drafted to the NFL it could be a game changer in recruiting for 10 years.

    DRC: Littrell -- English on course to make return

    Up voted this for its accuracy. Love that English is coming back however we are still too thin on defense. English is great but we are not talking about a sure bet Blue Chip first 3 rounds of the NFL draft player. If you have a solid defensive team with just decent depth that is only kind of player you should hope for a 15 point a game impact from.

    Sentinel C-USA non conference schedule ratings 2018

    Regional schools are fine but not FCS schools. And I especially don't like basically 2 FCS schools on the schedule regardless of where they are from. My list included better known G5 programs and programs with a Big 12 connection. I did not mention Houston because I believe that when they are making their OOC opponent list we are near the bottom. Also I believe Tulane doesn't particularly like playing us either.

    Sentinel C-USA non conference schedule ratings 2018

    There is a pretty big gap between OOC world beaters and the likes of Liberty or Incarnate word. I would rather see teams like Iowa State, San Diego State, Colorado, CSU, or even Texas State. Yes you are guaranteed a bowl as conference champion but with this schedule we shouldn't get upset if one of our more competitive conference rivals end up in a better bowl than us. Also if we get in a bowl and get blasted cause we haven't face a team with solid P5 level athletes that isn't a good look either. One cupcake per year please.

    LOCAL TOURNY SPORTS COVERAGE

    I saw some mentions on the local news. It does not help when the UNT men get bounced in the first round.

    More on the Mean Green Athletics Fee

    If the students can’t get on board with still being below Texas State and UTSA in athletic fees..... Never mind I will stay positive.

    Receiver Transfer?

    Not quite that simple but very close. Don’t get me wrong it would be great to have another weapon for Mason’s senior year. If he comes on as a walk-on great. But you need to think about scholarships slots if he isn’t a walk-on. The Mean Green defense needs front 7 help. Needing score 38+ a game against G5 opponents to have enough wins to be bowl eligible is not a good posture to be in. If your defense rarely gets off the field without giving up points that is exactly the position your team will be in. WR is worthless standing on the sideline while the opponents offense is marching down the field eating clock on the way to 7 points.

    Why no one goes to SMU games

    Again 9,000 students in a community with a ton of other things to do and other school loyalties within families. So if you want to criticize the fandom go right ahead. I think it’s stupid because with the resources we have at UNT we have no excuse for not seating at least 28,000 every home game. Not giving any kudos to TCU.

    Why no one goes to SMU games

    Unrealistic expectations from a blog post is revisionist history. Let me quote the blog posting you referenced. “With an enrollment of less than 9,000, TCU football games will forever remain a challenge to fill up Amon G. Carter Stadium's 45,000 seats.” I don’t know what you expect. But competing for sports entertainment dollars in the DFW area is hard. If UNT got the same percentage of local Alumni to buy in as TCU does we would have a nearly pack Apogee.

    That is a good one. But the aren’t small by any stretch of the imagination, 33,000 undergraduates. They are THE school for the Moron faith like Notre Dame is for Catholics. The difference in size of the schools reflects the difference in number of people who have those respective faiths. They have huge buy in from the state of Utah. So there attendance is better and should be.
