  1. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/27886383/college-football-bowl-projections ESPN says Frisco or Bocca
  2. How has no one posted the obvious answer; money. Lots and lots of money. Money to secure coaches and assistant coaches. Money to keep “pay day” games off the schedule. Money for amenities to keep the students’ interest. Money for promotions and marketing.
  3. This weekend’s attendance will have big impact on which bowl we get. Sell Outs matter as much as wins to selection committees.
  4. Where is your favorite place to get the best quality North Texas polos and hats on-line?
  5. For tune up games you pull your starting QB at the half, then you start pulling your 1st stringers throughout the third. That’s Football 101 at any level.
  6. Because we don't want our program/stadium to have to compete with a bowl for corporate sponsorship. Would you rather have the Peterbilt Bowl or Halftime Show Presented by Peterbilt.
  7. The problem with the current bowl system is not enough compelling bowl match ups. We need bowl realignment to match conference realignment and some good G5 vs P5 match ups and not so many P5 #6 vs P5#7 matchups.
  8. Three straight bowl games and OP is complaining about an OT loss, losses to conference champs, and a loss to a ranked team. Nobody likes to lose, but this team and program is headed in the right direction.
  9. Vito had a pretty fair write up. UNT does have a lot to be proud of. The Mean Green beat rival SMU and beat Arkansas on the road. UNT also posted its second straight nine-win season, a milestone the Mean Green had not reached since the days of Hayden Fry. Being blown out in a bowl game was a tough deal for UNT, but the Mean Green have a lot to be proud of.
  10. Anyone else notice that 9 out of NM Green's top 12 are not in Albuquerque? A few things in ABQ worth checking out: 1. Old Town Square. 2. Breaking Bad Tour. 3. NM Natural History and Science Museum 4.Explora Science Museum (kids) 5. The tram up to the mountains. 6. TDs (not for kids)
  11. I am also having a promotion where you can send an alumni to the game. You buy my ticket and I go to the game with you. Additional entertainment services based on the amount of beer you buy. No travel and lodging required.
  12. Budget articles are hard to write. I don't expect student journalist to be able to convey the complexity of government accounting. They did stumble on a few good nuggets. The good news. The Athletic Department is paying more than its standard debt service. That's a really good sign. One, it means they have extra cash to lay down on something. Two, it means they are freeing up debt capacity sooner to be able to move on to the next capital project. Growth is good. The bad news. The two largest sources of funding are essentially internal transfers from the university. Not a sign of strength. But as others have pointed out this is problem throughout college athletics across the country. The ugly. $38 bucks to market soccer. I'm guess that was some facebook ads to hype a game.
  13. Which he will probably do after 4 or 5 full seasons as a coach at UNT. Matt Wells was the head coach at Utah State for 6 years, had two conference championships and 5 bowl teams and he got the Texas Tech job. I love coach L, but he doesn't have that kind of resume yet.
