  1. I don't see the AAC adding us because I do not see them adding another team from the DFW metro to the conference. If anyone from CUSA goes to AAC, I see it being Marshall. Not that they are better than anyone else, it just makes sense to me because of the market and location. They have some decent history and other than WVU, there is nothing else going in the market. If not them, I can see UAB, Old Dominion, or USM based on location. I just do not see AAC saturating the DFW market with another team. Our best bet out of CUSA is MWC.
  2. I'm with you. I cannot stand Starbucks, but then again, I don't drink coffee either so they never get my money anyway.
  3. Wow! I never knew any of that. I already had a tremendous amount of respect for Coach Littrell, but after reading all that, I have a new found respect for what he has accomplished amidst such tough trials. For him to keep going and achieving like he has, that speaks to the character and the soul of the man. God has truly blessed him and after what he has been through and keeping his trust in God, he deserves those blessings. Often as fans, I think we do not think about the fact that the people we cheer and yell at have lives outside of football. He has managed it well. I am sure lesser people would have crumbled under the pressure to win when they have the trials that he has faced with them daily. Glad he is here with North Texas. God continue to bless Coach Littrell and his family.
  4. Exactly. I agree with what you said. I think there was an assumption that you were trying to relate them to bodybag games.
  5. I with Brett here. He never said they were bodybag games. He only said that UNT has cut down on the number of games in which we play P5 schools. All those teams may not be powerhouse football programs, but they are part of a P5 conference. We went from three a year to one a year. That is cutting down the number.
  6. Hopefully you get an interview with him soon to give us some insight on why he chose UNT.
  7. This is huge when you can get 4 star recruits. I know he may be a retread, but the fact that he chose to come to UNT says to me that we are trending in the right direction. Pretty soon we will get 4 star guys right out of high school and won't have to take guys who are transferring. If things keep going this way and we keep winning, we will have to start looking seriously at coaches salaries. Right now, IMO North Texas is becoming very attractive and P5 schools are going to come very hard after what we have. With a student body and alumni base as large as ours, there is no reason why we cannot compete with P5 schools. Especially the ones on the smaller side. However, I know we have a long way to go to energize an apathetic alumni base. I think we are starting to sell the new students. It's the older students and alumni that we need to get on board.
  8. That was great. Thank you for posting this.
  9. I was looking at the all time football recruits for North Texas according to 24/7. Mason Fine, Jeffery Wilson and Zach Orr were so far down the list, it was ridiculous. Hint, it's easier to start at the bottom to get to those guys sooner.That goes to show that giving stars to players do not necessarily give a great indication of how well they will perform at the next level. https://247sports.com/college/north-texas/Sport/Football/AllTimeRecruits/
  10. I went to Rendezvous there because they supposedly have the best dry rub. Yeah, I was not impressed. I never went back again.
  11. I taught ROTC at the University of Memphis when Wren was there. We often had to work with the Athletics Department to plan and do the color guards for multiple sporting events. I do not see him leaving for Memphis. UNT is a much better place for an AD. I think he would only leave for a major P5 program. Besides, Memphis is a garbage city to live in. It is cool to visit Memphis as a tourist, but living there is a whole different matter. The school system is horrible, the crime rate is terrible, and the city leadership is completely corrupt. The last thing is, Memphis BBQ is not what it is hyped up to be. Texas BBQ is much better. :)
  12. Would be 8 if Mayfield can do well in the Bucs mini camp.
  13. USM scores a run. They still trail 3-1 in the bottom of the 4th. They still need 3 more runs at least. I am certainly cheering for USM.
  14. Especially with the way Pittsburgh's kicker hit the skids last season.
  15. LaTech up 3-0 in game 3 of this weekend. If this keeps up, they will be Co-Champs with us. I hope USM can get their bats to come to life soon.
  16. I remember him when I was a student at Denton High School. He was no longer coaching football, but we all loved him. He was a great man.
  17. Why do you guys even acknowledge CK2? He comes on this board to troll. Just stop responding to the guy or giving him ratings. Don't give him good ratings or bad. Just do not acknowledge his presence.
  18. Roderick Young to Jacksonville.
  19. I may be wrong, but I think the difference is recruiting. For the player it makes no difference. They just want an opportunity to make it. For the school, it matters because when you are recruiting, kids know about the players who were drafted and you can use that. They don't know anything about who signed as free agents unless that free agent makes a household name for himself. Sure you can tell them someone signed as a FA, but it doesn't have the same impact as selling a prospect on being drafted. Just my opinion.
  20. Kemon Hall to the Chargers.
  21. I don't understand how the Packers draft Ka'Dar Hollman, but pick up Nate Brooks in free agency. Nate Brooks stats were much better than his.
