  1. The realization is that this team isn’t a good FT shooting team & they will struggle offensively at times all season, especially when they get in a half court lull.. they aren’t big nor should they play big (Tope & Zach don’t really ever need to be on the floor together like suggested) the strength is undoubtedly the guard play & creating mismatches with space... I’d love to get out & run more often, but that’s just me.. conference play is a burner. Is for just about every program in every conference, that’s just how the college game goes.. Love how active the press was too, very impressive defending w/o fouling, wonder if GMac goes to it more... Oh & CUSA officiating is a serious problem.. whistles have been wildly inconsistent in every conference game across the whole league.. I was an official & have great compassion for those in that field of work, but it’s borderline comical how bad they’ve been in the games I’ve seen..

  2. Gibson is probably the best on ball defender on the roster, wonder if G Mac is willing to do away with that in the starting lineup. While we could go super small, I fear by taking J Simmons off the floor you become too small. Duffey’s game is more fit to come off the bench imo, a scorer that could help boost the 2nd unit, but then again the CBI run showed he’s more than capable in a starting role.... unlike years past, nice to have some depth! Good time for a week off, staff can hopefully start pinning down some rotations, kids starting filling their roles... great to have basketball back at North Texas

    Is this not concerning to anyone? Hopefully the bleeding stops, because if we loose anyone else we could be in for a long season. We have lost very little offense, however Lawson and Holston both brought length, athleticism, and defense. We are very undersized already. Hopefully we get some length and defense to replace these guys. 

    All by design & to script.. not worried at all, the scholly's available are coming at the best time for the program.. Expecting GMac to bring in a quality big as well as another scorer.. Many thanks to Khalil, Fredo & AJ, this is just modern day CBB business

    Interesting statistic...

    I'm wondering what his actual stock is amongst NFL teams and if he'll get a chance at the next level. Would certainly add to his already amazing story. He had a very strong year last season too so he's certainly shown consistent production...

    He could use some height and weight, plus I'd think he would need to be an improved tackler... You have to do that at the next level as a DB, but corners are a unique animal.. You can find quality at just about any level, hope he gets a chance..

  5. I kept reiterating what a full off season & spring would do for 6. A kid with his work ethic & IQ was obviously going to take quantum leaps. People forget he was playing as a true Fresh about 30 days after arriving in Denton. Proud of the kid, not only one hell of a football player, but turning into a great ambassador for our University.

  6. It's obvious the Army game was abandoned to set up improved future scheduling, and the home/home with Houston fits that bill. Army is still on the future schedule (2020, 2021) as well. The good guys lost about 5 bodies the other night too. It's football and it happens, but playing Army late in the year isn't necessarily great from a health standpoint, and defensively you have to scheme up the option. That's a complete battle/grind for 60 min, reasonable not to what to do that yearly. As for not wanting to play Liberty over a difference of opinion, get over it. I'm not Mormon, nor do I necessarily agree w/ their beliefs, but I'd love to have a home/home with BYU. As would just about all of us. It's a winnable road game, victories equal a change in perception. Just keep winning, everything else follows. That's how every program has ever made the come up. Plus, I can think of worse things than bending over Liberty on a Saturday.

    First road test, against a Big XII opponent no less.

    B10.. Huskers had to grind out their opener over the fighting Tony Romo's aka Easter Illinois.. Dare I say winnable?? Would love a competitive game w/ under 10 to go.. Believe the game is on Big Ten net??

    Big thanks to my buddy @TheReal_jayD for helping me put together an awesome proposal yesterday. The atmosphere was amazing and the Mean Green faithful made this grown my cry like a baby. Thank you to everyone that was there cheering us on. Wren was there to congratulate us as we walked off the field and on top of all that, we wrapped up the west! It was truly an unforgettable day. Go Mean Green!

    My man Larry is all grown up.... Extremely happy for you brother.. I'm waiting for next years playoff invite to one up you.. I can pop the question when we're playing in the Natty.. Anyone who knows a chick let me know, thanks in advance

  9. The wives, the pool, the whatever, is a straight cop out. Call it how it is, the team got their ass whooped for 60 minutes. No excuses, just flat out outperformed from start to finish.... With that said, I'm eager to see the response, still so very much to play for, but this will really test this staff. I want to see if they can bounce back, prob Littrell & co biggest challenge since arriving..

    Yeah, I just don't see it with the way they've been recruiting. They have completely mopped the floor with us in recruiting under Wilson, and I don't think you can out scheme a talent difference like that on a consistent basis. Even at home.

    The kids Wilson recruited there are what? Redshirt Freshmen? Sophmores? Come on man, the fact you're acting like that isn't a winnable game is comical... sorry I don't buy the 'talent difference' opinion..

    Wilson made two NFL cuts at the last scrimmage, cuts I hadn't seen since Demarco Murray at OU. At least live with my own eyes. 

    Jeff has to stay healthy or it's a mute point. His undersized frame doesn't do him much favor either. I know he has struggled to add and maintain weight in the past. Pound for pound he is one hell of a running back though, he will definitely get his looks, just hope his body holds up. Kishawn is likely the reason for the boost in scouts at practice. He too is a bit undersized, which is typical at the G5 level, but the guy is as instinctual of a ball player as I can recall. Put on the Army film in West Point, incredible the way he flew to the ball, sideline to sideline. He can support the run and drop in coverage. A natural football player. Deserving of every look he gets.
