  1. I’m planing on driving over from Lubbock for the SMU game. Hopefully we can finally get a win over there.
  2. A small but funny thing: The diving eagle design doesn’t have the C-USA logos like the other 2 designs do. THAT’S how they’re really trying to convince people lol.
  3. The Battle Flag is the best design and it’s not really close.
  4. It also helps us pull in better coaches in the future via our budget. It’s easier to keep allocating $1.8M to salary each year than it is to change the budget to bring in a new coach at $1.8M or even $2M from $1.4M.
  5. UNT has a good case (good budget, football committed, recent success in football/basketball, in DFW, good facilities, etc.) but I am going to be honest and tell you UNT’s 3 biggest things hurting our chances of getting the promotion right now: 1) Proximity to SMU. SMU doesn’t like us (especially after last year) so they would likely lobby against us. Also, SMU is also in DFW so there’s a question of how many eyes could be gained by adding another DFW member. 2) UNT doesn’t have baseball right now. Yeah it’s in the master plan sure, but lots of schools have lots of stuff in their master plan. Baseball is about 5 years away for us at this point. 3) How sustainable is UNT’s current success? The last 3-4 years have been some of the best in UNT athletic’s history with an AD who loves sports, a president who loves sports, and a BoR who love sports. This hasn’t happened before at UNT. So is this the new norm or is this a blip in time where athletics is just getting very well funded and won’t in the future? I would say those are probably the 3 biggest marks against UNT, if you disagree or think of something else, I’m always open to feedback, but I think that’s my best unbiased opinion. I do think UNT would be a good overall addition for the AAC, but can definitely understand why they would be apprehensive and say no.
  6. My guess: Jordan Nichols, Ennis Rakestraw, and either Seth Meador or Cedrick Pellum
  7. Also our SOS improved when New Mexico blew out #6 Nevada. That probably gave us 1-2 spots and the Southern Miss won gave us the other 1-2 spots.
  8. Did anyone happen to catch the announced attendance?
  9. The real story here is that they are paying him $4M/year. The salary is more impressive to me than the name. $4M/year is an insane amount of money for a G5. Next highest paid G5 coach is Mike Norvell at Memphis making $2.6M/year. We need a sugar daddy donor like UH & Memphis have lol.
  10. 40-29 Rice lead. This seems less than ideal.
  11. Good thing about the NCAA’s NET rating is that a 50 point win = an 11 point win as far as margin of victory goes. Anything 10 or above in MoV only counts as 10 points.
  12. OL Chris Cassidy named to the APSE 5A All-State first team. Good sign for the future of our OL.
  13. That tweet makes me think he is blueshirting. Was curious if they would have him sign in Johnson’s place or reserve the spot for a surprise
