  1. He honestly reminds me of Devin Singletary from FAU. Singletary was about 5'9" 200 lbs. Siggers is 5'8" and 200 lbs. He's just as punishing and aggressive of a runner as i remember Singletary being. The same reasons Singletary gave the conference fits are the same reasons Siggers tortures the conference during his career. If he continues like this, expect great things in college and at the NFL level. I'm very excited about Siggers being in green.
  2. Depends. If your transfers never played at P5s due to work ethic or attitude then why believe they'll be any better at a G5 school?SMU got a variety of transfers, several of which had injury issues which prevented them from playing previously. For SMU a few of their transfers were productive at their previous schools. Their QB transfer Bueschele was a starter at Texas for a year and some games so I think many expected him to play well at SMU. SMU also got Abercrumbia, a DT from Rice who was 3rd team all C-USA last year. Their linebacker McBride from Auburn played in the SEC but suffered a neck injury in 2018. He recorded a couple tackles in their SEC championship game against Georgia in 2017.
  3. Yes. Has me wondering, our 2 losses are against what looks like a tough SMU and a solid rankee Cal team who just beat Ole Miss. Maybe UNT isn't that bad this year? I guess time will tell.
  4. Terrible take. If Reeder needed experience he shouldn't have been hired as OC and if SL has this mentality he shouldn't be a coach. I've never heard of a coach thinking "let's get our teeth kicked in but come out with some experience!" Reality is, Graham Harrell was good at his job and we trashed him on the board thinking we knew more than we knew.
  5. I appreciate the talk about additional police presence considering all the Dallas PD officers I know who are UNT alumni. Meanwhile, I've never met SMU alumni with the urge to serve their community by applying for employment with a local police department.
  6. SMU kicks a field goal to get on the board still down 7-3. This concludes my detailed scouting of next weeks enemy as the UNT game commences.
  7. SMU down 7-0 early. Buchele threw an early pick and Ark State threw a TD on their first offensive play.
  8. All the starters get food poisoning before the ACU game leading us to lose by 1 on a last second 60 yard field goal. We then beat every single other team on our schedule by no less than 3 TDs. The ACU game is viewed as a one off due to the food poisoning and 1 point loss and then we make the final 4. Boom.
  9. I bought my tickets for this game yesterday. I can't wait. This will be my first UNT game since the 2013 bowl game. Life took over after college. I moved about 1.5 hours away, had kids, and work nights and weekends. I've requested time off for this game since I have some seniority now but even if I don't get the time off, I'll be at the game. I'll just go to work tired after. Win or lose it'll be a night to remember. I went to every home game in college except for when my brother got married which was Dunbar's last game in green. I can't wait to go to this game and I'll be taking my brother with me. GMG.
  10. Like another poster said, they had years to train and practice together. This SMU team is a mix of random players who barely know each other and have barely practiced together. Will they be scary good by the end of the season? Probably. But when we play them they'll still be figuring out each of their roles and gaining chemistry. I'm not too worried. Now if 80% of these guys have 2 years to play then they'll be good next year. It's late to be bringing in transfers for this season.
  11. Most of their own kids aren't from Dallas proper as it is. Looking through their roster, I counted 9 players from Dallas schools and 6 of those kids went to a prep school or private school (Dunne, Bishop Lynch, Jesuit, etc...). If you want to count Highland Park as Dallas that adds 3 or 4 players from Dallas. The kids mentioned in the Twitter post only include 1 from the inner city (Gary - Kimball). These kids from the inner city know SMU, who goes there, and how they feel about them. I'm not worried about some billboards being put up showcasing players from the suburbs. It'll take completely changing the culture at SMU to make a difference. Edit: regarding Gary being from the inner city, I don't know his background. I will say there are some pretty decent residential neighborhoods in the area of Westmoreland and Kiest around Kimball. Going to DISD doesn't mean you grew up as an inner city kid.
  12. Ehh. Pushing a 50-60 year old professional overboard > pushing an 18-22 year old student overboard. Regardless, all a good job by the Mean Green faithful.
  13. The punter incident sounds familiar as well. We we're ruthless from start to finish those last few home games. I remember the UTSA players showing us up when it was clear they were going to win. We started chanting "no postseason" because they weren't yet eligible for bowl games due to some FBS rules regarding them being in a transitional season. There were many great moments that year. We as students really helped create an amazing home field advantage. It's a shame they took the seats away until now.
  14. Rice game that year. A friend and I were roasting their defense and one of the defensive coaches. My friend told them to go recruit better players so the coach turned around and yelled "F*ck off!" To my friend. It was amazing. I cussed back at them and was warned I would be escorted out if it happened again. It was worth it though after the Rice coach responded. We won the game and as the players were walking along the student section giving high fives, one of our number 8s, I believe it was Trice, jumped onto the the wall and all us students swarmed him smacked his helmet as we cheered. We nearly dragged him into the seats. Lifelong UNT fans were made that night. I'll always remember it.
  15. I have 2011 and 2014. In both we're pretty much the new Alabama within about 5 seasons (multiple time national champs and multiple top 3 recruiting classes).
