  1. Maybe Barr's 4 pages sums up Mueller's 400. Maybe it does not. I will say that I was not surprised in the least how this finally played out. What I do wonder is how simple a person must be to look at the following list of indictments and plea deals and come away with the conclusion that the special counsel was a political witch hunt. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/list-of-mueller-indictments-783405/ We as Americans, be it left or right, should be deeply concerned about the transgressions uncovered in the Mueller investigation. If you are not I seriously wonder where your priorities lay.
  2. I think the article misses the biggest point regarding declining attendance. College Football fans are the ultimate homers. All they need to motivate is to hold out hope that "next year" will be the year their team goes on that magical run to the conference championship and maybe the national title. This is an underlying sentiment the fuels the passion inside of them. Everything else associated with game day completes the fan experience but is not the base sauce. More and more fans realize now that their teams chance to do anything magical is close to zero. I am not just talking G5 schools. Over half the P5 schools have close to zero chance of winning a national title. Basically the focus on creating a "true" national title game has actually hurt the sport since it is not broad based and severely diminishes the pride fans feel to be chasing "just" a conference championship. To me the obvious fix for college football is to lower the number of regular season games and instead expand the playoff format. You put HOPE back in to a fans heart and they can't get enough. Every time I see Wifi in these articles I throw up in my mouth a little.
  3. Shows what I know. I always thought this building had Charn’s name on it.
  4. I have never seen enough upside to warrant building a new arena. UTA, they needed a new arena. The pit in both structure and ownership is not ideal but does not hold the program back. Give me baseball!
  5. My wife is very much supportive. She likes going to the occasional game and wear her UNT gear. I generally receive something North Texas related for Christmas. With all that said. She went to Ohio State and I can tell in the backs of her eyes that she thinks the UNT program is cute. She wants to give us a noogie pat us on our head and tell us to keep trying real hard and one day we might be a big boy too.
  6. Think how excited you would be today if 10 years ago we had an AD that was getting these games on the schedule.
  7. We made them look like they should be ranked #1
  8. sometimes when I read these articles I get sad about how small a G-5 fan base really is. Can you imagine the number of responses if UT or aTm did a get your rear on the record?
  9. I would argue winning at NDSU might be the easiest job in college football. Main reason is they constantly build on the success of the past. They have not had a losing coach since the 1950's. They get the best borderline FCS/FBS recruits. They get great FBS transfers. They have a terrific stadium. All of that has built a fanbase that is the most energetic and loyal in all of college football. Their fans come in droves to Frisco for the Championship each year and take over the town. Klienman did not build all of that, he just kept the ball rolling. I see a lot of risk with this hire.
  10. All season I have been wondering why Ejiya has not been getting much NFL talk. The young man looks every bit an NFL caliber player to me. What is the hole in his game that I am not seeing?
  11. The longer this carries out the more I am convinced the whole thing is about contract negotiations with UNT.
  12. For years we talked here about wanting to be the next UH. A springboard for the great up and coming coaches. When we hired Littrel it showed the AD finally understood what was needed at North Texas. A young, energetic, upwardly mobile coach that will use us to build his resume and we will use him to elevate our program. What we are feeling now was inevitable but also fortunate, in that it means we have had success. The majority of my disappointment comes from the fact that our coaching search will be late and we never landed the best recruiting class in a long long time. I would not be shocked at all if Graham Harrell is announced as the next head coach. Yes we all have our reservations about GH being the next head coach. But, if it means keeping the recruiting class together and possibly our staff then he deserves a very strong look.
  13. If Seth turns down the K-state job you have the city of Manhattan Kansas to thank. With a population of 52k, where will you be spending your millions? Its almost three hours to Kansas City, about the same to Omaha. If he wants to see family in Muskogee it will take almost 6 hours. But, he will be rich! He can just fly everywhere. Well he better have a private jet otherwise his choices are limited out of Manhattan Regional Airport.
