    I recorded the game and watched it after the basketball game. Brooks and Hall looked good. They seemed to lock down the receivers on the National team for the most part. The only time the National team was able to complete balls down the field on corners was when Brooks and Hall were out of the game. They completed some underneath stuff, but nothing major. When they did complete underneath stuff, they made sure tackles to keep them from gaining the first downs. Brooks got the INT. I think they both did a lot to help themselves. I know EJ is our best prospect to break the draft drought, but I don't think he helped himself yesterday. He just seemed to get lost in all the ash and trash. He wasn't able to shed blocks well. Maybe he did some things that I didn't see, but he didn't look like he did anything to help himself from my POV.

    CUSA Standings (1/20/19)

    Marshall has a tough stretch coming up going on the road against WKU, LaTech, and USM. So, if we take care of business, we could be at the top of the conference again.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    I understand what you are saying about rankings and seeding matter, but my point is that if you come in as the number 1 seed or number 15 doesn't matter as long as you beat who you are playing that game. If you are number 15 and beat everyone in front of you in the tournament, you can be the NCAA champion. Even if you beat said teams by 1 point each. Football is different because we could beat everyone on our schedule and still will not play for the National Championship because we are not in a P5 conference.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    Exactly what I am saying.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    For all the naysayers that say this team is not really that good because we do not blow out inferior opponents, just stay calm. You do not have to blow teams out to be good. You just need to beat who is in front of you that day. Style points are only good for rankings. Rankings don't mean anything if you beat the other team by at least 1 point. All we need to do is just what the late Al Davis used to say "Just win baby." And today we did just that. They got it done. Sure, I would love for them to win every game comfortably, but what I want more than that is to keep winning no matter the score.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    Okay so they do not even specify a North Texas Jersey? That's odd. Thank you for the information.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    Does it matter what kind of jersey? Can it be a football jersey or does it have to be basketball?
  8. Being a Steelers fan, I would love to see him in black and gold. Besides, we need a good ILB with speed since Shazier was lost. Plus, he is bigger than Shazier was. Maybe he can be the next NFL hall of famer to play defense for the Steelers from North Texas kind of like a guy people called Mean Joe. Okay I am getting ahead of myself, but I can dream.

    QB Cade Pearson intends to transfer

    I knew he would transfer when he was recruited. Some had him rated a 3 star and others a 2 star. I think UNT offered him because they were still in the process of improving their recruiting and felt like he was the best they could get until recruiting improved. In other words, I felt like he was a band aid until they could get a real fix. Once they had a winning season in 2017 and Luke Walerius came on board, recruiting improved drastically and they quickly brought in 2 QBs in Bean and Martin. I knew for sure that spelled the end of Cade. Him not playing in the NM Bowl told him that he was not going to play here. I think he is a good kid and I think he wants to succeed and will work hard. I hope he does succeed somewhere.

    Got Our Asses Handed To Us By NutsaCK!

    I was at the Women's game and I do not understand why Coach Mitchell was not putting on a full court press most of the game. UTSA had 7 players and I believe the press would have worn them out. Towards the end they were tiring, but we dug ourselves too big a hole to climb out of. Plus, we were absolutely atrocious offensively. We could not buy a basket.
  11. While most watch the men, the women are quietly racking up wins. They thoroughly defeated UTEP tonight. They led from start to finish and beat UTEP 70-51 to go to 3-0 in conference. Also Coach Mitchell reached 50 wins faster than any coach in UNT history. I try and go to both men and women games at the Super Pit. The defense by the women tonight was just amazing. Hopefully they continue this dominance this Saturday against UTSA.
  12. This was a great game. Our women are getting it done.
  13. I am like others. I think he had too many drops this year and seemed to get lost in double teams. I hope he succeeds because it will definitely help our program if he does.

    Pre Spring Offensive Depth Chart

    I think Cade Pearson will transfer out based on the fact that he was the only QB that did not get an opportunity against Utah.

    Women outscore men ?

    The women thoroughly dominated Southern Miss yesterday. Maybe their OOC schedule is starting to pay dividends. If they can keep this up, I expect a lot more wins. Plus, they did that away from the Super Pit. They are 2-0 in conference. They have some firsts as well. This week was the first wins in Ruston and Hattiesburg. They did not leave any doubt in both games who was the better team.

    Super Pit thoughts

    I don't know when they plan to open the new arena either, but I doubt they will spend the money to perform those upgrades because they plan on building the new arena.
  17. I am guessing he forgot about the Rice game. I am glad that they finally got this 15-1. Maybe they will play better. Part of me felt like they were feeling the pressure of getting this record and it has affected the way they were playing. Like taking shots that were clearly not good looks, but pressing to make them happen anyway. Now that the pressure of getting the record is gone, they can relax and play the basketball that they are capable of playing.

    Southern Mississippi (1/5/19)

    I agree wholeheartedly

    Southern Mississippi (1/5/19)

    While I agree that we probably won't make it through the conference without a loss, I disagree with we're not capable. I think they are very capable of going through the conference without a loss. It would be tough, but they definitely have the ability. Will they do it? Probably not, but can they? Yes.

    UNT NET Ranking Tracker - 2018/2019

    The only way we move up after USM is if we thoroughly dominate them from start to finish.

    Holgorson agrees with UH

    I am with you on this. I left UNT for one semester to attend UTA. I hated it there and came back to UNT and never looked back. Although I did not like UTA, I do not waste my time going to their fan page, if they have one, just to bad mouth the school because I did not like it there. We get it, he doesn't like UNT. But for someone who didn't like UNT and left, he sure spends a lot of time on our page. He is like the a person whose girlfriend broke up with him and he says he doesn't care about her, but yet spends all his time following her around and bad mouthing the new guy that she is dating. Sounds like to me he is bitter that he didn't graduate from the Mean Green.

    Louisiana Tech (1/3/19)

    I will be there. Come hell or high water, I will make it. I am not going to let the weather stop me.

    CUSA Standings (12/30/18)

    If we can win Thursday, that should put us in a very good position. We need to pack the Pit this Thursday and cheer on the MBB team. It would be super nice if the WBB team can beat LaTech on that same day in Ruston.

    Rice (12/29/18)

    The team I watched over the last 25 minutes of this game is the team I hope we see the rest of the way. That was a good road win against a team that came out firing on all cylinders.

    The ESPN announcers are messing up names. The one guy called Draper's name drapper so many times in the beginning.
