  1. I believe you are correct here. I think Brint Ryan was the biggest push for the scale of the contract. But EVERYONE was calling for an extension after the SMU/Arkansas games that year, not to mention Seth Littrell is 1 of 2 coaches in UNT history to have back to back 9 win seasons. There were lots of indicators that things were going well. But something is off. It doesn't seem a departure like Graham Harrell would completely derail a program but maybe it did. I don't know. But this isn't the same program we saw in 2017 and 2018. I don't fault UNT for giving Seth an extension. It was
  2. This is true. I believe WB extended Seth twice but Brint Ryan and Smatresk hired Seth and I'm sure had a lot to do with his extensions as well since President and Board approval are required. At the time, most everyone agreed on the extensions (last one was when he beat Arkansas and SMU and after back to back 9 win seasons for the 2nd time ever) but the salary did seem high. Perhaps that was due to the Kansas State flirtations, not sure. I'm not ready to write this season or Seth off. I'm hopeful we'll settle in and win six or seven. But if we have to hire a coach, WB has shown the abilit
  3. I think Rice is down to 10. FAU and FIU are also at 10. Of course the power conferences are all at 10. I'd love to see us pick up a 12th game but understand the logic of not picking up expense if there isn't a big paycheck game. I'd feel differently if we'd have lost a home game.
  4. Seems like there's some unknowns. But UNT announced its refunding students that lived on campus prorated for the remainder of the semester as of last week. That would mean roughly 6 weeks living rent and meal plans being refunded. I don't know how many we have living on campus but has to be somewhere between 6,000 and 8,000 I'd think. Assuming the lesser number of 6,000 at a refund cost of $1,500 each (remaining rooms and meals) that would be $9 million. It's just the start and I assumed low end of all of those numbers. Then summer enrollment has to be suffering from this I'd imagine. Summer i
  5. I got an email today. In fairness, cancellation wasn't until Thursday. Email on Friday of last week said expect something early this week. I got my email on Tuesday. Definitely had not been a week. But it does seem longer without sports. 😞
  6. No they wouldn't. What makes you say this stuff? P5s pretty much NEVER take buy games, even from P5s. When they do it's at elite programs like Notre Dame. If you can get P5s to take buy games at G5s then you should quit whatever job you have and go into scheduling. You'd be a millionaire off of UCF alone. Miami probably has a $100 million budget. You think they'd sacrifice their football program by playing on the road? I'd like to get on what you're on. Also I'm with MeanGreenTexas, WB and crew have proven to be more adept at scheduling than anyone we've ever had here. I'll wait for fina
  7. This peaked my curiosity so I went back a little further. We finished 2nd once in the Sunbelt but I think there were only 3 teams. So I agree with your initial premise that its one of UNT's lowest performing teams. But I disagree that it was getting better under the previous coach. It seems like the current coach has done just as well if not someone better when looking at both conference finish and dual meet head to head records. Probably an uphill climb without a new facility and as we all kind of agree, that seems a ways off. 2015 - 5th 2014 - 5th 2013 - 2nd (Sunbelt) 20
  8. I haven't seen finish this year but last year we had our highest finish ever in CUSA (3rd place). Rice and FIU are both really good programs and head and shoulders above the rest. https://www.collegeswimming.com/results/118549/ But yeah, my guess is its to balance the male female ratio. Not sure on the facilities but if they still use the facilities in Physical education building, they were an issue 20 years ago when I last stepped in there. 🙂
  9. With a full week before our 1st conference games, I wouldn't rest them at all. My biggest concern is rust heading into CUSA tournament. We've lost our last two games after 7 days off. Play to win. They have a full week to rest after that which is a lifetime for a college athlete in the condition these guys are in.
  10. Honestly, I haven't seen much calling for her head. Are you talking about on GMG.com? I'm a fan and want Jalie to do well. I think she's not that far off. My biggest worry is the number of transfers out she seems to have in the program. But I believe if any other coach at UNT had her overall record, this board would be on fire. It seems most of us are pretty patient with her given she's one of ours and inherited a mess. But McCasland also inherited a shit show, has won considerably more and has taken way more criticism on this board than Jalie.
  11. I'm guessing it was overall pitch count and how he figures schedule shakes out tomorrow. Hope was starting to struggle. If you leave her in and we lose, then you may not have her much, if at all, tomorrow. This team has come a long way. Our pitching behind hope isn't bad, but it's nowhere near her. We have a great chance to beat a Northwestern with Hope. We saw the game without her.
  12. I haven't made it to a game yet this year. I will when the weather and my schedule line up. I made it to a half dozen or so last year and I agree. Night and day. They play hard but it's obvious they're having fun. I think the previous coach just kept them too uptight.
  13. You do know you can make a gift to the University and restrict it to whatever you desire including the softball program. I haven't got this specific but I would think they'd accept gifts towards softball salaries. I agree DeLong is doing a hell of a job. WB hired him so I'm sure he wants to keep him. Posting on here 2-3 times a week does nothing. $$$ towards it does and I'm sure every little bit helps.
