  1. It looks like a La Quinta that stopped being a La Quinta 20 years ago
  2. Drez is great and will be an asset to any team. Thankful for his time in Denton. He’s graduating and wants to move on. Can’t fault him for wanting a chance or scenery.
  3. I think we all agree he’s underpaid. I’m hoping the AD can get him in the 1.2-1.5 range. If they can’t then there’s no hope. But after that, the choice is a little less clear if his end goal is to coach in a power conference. If SMU offers 2.5 like has been suggested, his buyout will end up being significant. I doubt that will be a major impediment to a power conference school, but he’s going to have to kill it at SMU because we all know his success at UNT will be downplayed.
  4. Don’t tempt me with a good time
  5. They will outbid us. Without question. Does Grant want to wait it out for a better job/settle for a small raise, or does he want to chase the money? We’ll find out soon enough. He did leave Arkansas State after a year so maybe he’s a job hopper. Though I’d take a pay cut to leave Jonesboro lol
  6. Are you expecting the Big 12 to expand within the next five years and take SMU? Maybe. Who knows. To me it seems like it’s mostly SMU fans pushing this narrative. It’s possible. But its a big if for Grant. If he wants the money, I don’t blame him. I’ll hate him a little for it, but that’s life.
  7. Money wise, I get it. It makes sense. Career wise? Absolutely makes no sense. UNT and SMU will be conference mates and there’s no real indication that they’ll get the call up to the Big 12 anytime soon. Judging from how quick SMU runs through coaches, it’s more likely that Grant will have an off NIT year and get shitcanned before another round of realignment happens. Regardless, UNT needs to pay the man. Hell, give him Littrell’s contract.
  8. The worst part about DFW is the prevalence of the SMU guy who thinks his ill gotten gains from waltzing into a make-work position at his daddy’s firm is a sign of his natural abilities and skills. When in reality he is profoundly mediocre and replaceable and no amount of money will change that. Just like SMU athletics.
  9. I’m pretty sure those unattributed game recaps are procedurally generated by software
  10. Haven’t you heard? SMUs Big12 invite is in the mail! They’re just waiting for it. Any day now…
  11. We need a moratorium on coaching threads
  12. He probably thought he could end it there in dramatic fashion. Love the heart and the gumption, but it wasn't smart.
  13. The criticism of the lack of bench might be overblown. But if there are injuries, foul trouble, or a player is having a bad night the situation gets sketchy fast. I'm more concerned with the lack of a slasher and so many missed point blank shots. The reliance on long jump shots and fade away 3s from the logo down the stretch is a risky way to go.
  14. I don't think power conferences really need to schedule tough home/homes in basketball. If Virginia had just won more games in the ACC they would have made the tournament. They just have to survive the 2-3 tough mid-major games they might get in an early season tournament.
  15. As is tradition in the ACC, Virginia fans bitching about the game even in victory because they’re entitled to it. @Censored by Laurie would love these guys (I’m also Maryland fan so I have sour grapes aplenty)
  16. Best team for sure. Last year’s team had some better individual performances down the stretch
  17. Tough and fought to the end. Too many missed opportunities and rushed shots at the end but they left it all out there. Cant ask for more
  18. Again, Perry forcing a shot…
  19. We’re gassed judging by the lack of close outs on that Franklin guy. He can’t miss.
  20. Wild ending. Perry little too greedy on that shot 😑
  21. Love him but he hasn’t looked right or consistent in a month. We have no offense without him right now.
  22. Too much lateral movement by Scott. Which makes it a 50/50 call. And let’s just assume that every 50/50 call will go Virginia’s way.
  23. Take a shot every time the announcers make a comment about how coach must be leaving soon
  24. Not sure why some are taking offense to the suggestion that this team, on the surface, looks like it needs to make some adjustments. Without question it was a magical season. Having a deeper bench with more contributors combined with the quality we already have, and good coaching might make the difference between having to sneak a couple victories on last second shots, and winning comfortably. Or maybe we beat Miami, and end up with the quality win to get over the hump. I know it certainly would have helped against UTEP and LaTech. Yes it’s all easier said than done. But this is a Internet forum. What else should we be talking about?
