  1. I will be there. Ginger Man after sounds like a good idea.
  2. #offseasonrandomness How old is the fan picture on the front of GMG? It seems it has been many years now that these friendly faces have greeted us when we get our daily GMG fix. Does anyone else wonder where these people are now and how they are doing? Are any of you in the picture, and can shed some light on the subject? How does it feel to see yourself on the front page every time you log in? Yes, it's a slow morning in the office for me.
  3. Without taking a side on the underlying issue I would like to take exception with the thread title. It implies that good guys with a gun ‘saving the day’ is a regular occurrence when in fact it’s rare. Even more rare is to have said good guys with the level of training this man had.
  4. I will be shocked if either are drafted.
  5. For what we pay I am convinced we can find another up and coming coach that can win everything but big games.
  6. My prediction is Seth takes on the OC role.
  7. I really don’t care about missing out on Renfro. You never really know how things will play out. Maybe he will be a star maybe not. I do get perturbed by kids backing out of commitments only because it hurts our recruiting in so much as we move our focus on other positions once that box was checked. Such is life I know.....
  8. ODU sells-out their stadium for almost every game. They also beat a top 25 team last year.
  9. I won’t disagree with any of that but in my observation people, however slightly, don’t care about the game as much.
  10. It’s all relative as every university is struggling with attendance but some are down from much higher numbers. One quick example is Notre Dame sellout streak just ended at 273 games. The second longest streak in the nation. So the question is why do people not like football as much as they used to? Some may say they just don’t like going to games as much anymore but I tend to disagree. I have discussed this with many friends and while the answer is certainly convoluted many think two big factors is penalties and injuries. The game is not the one that was played 30 years ago.
  11. I still support SL because I think he is a fierce competitor that is willing to change until he finds the success he is looking for. He will learn from this season and build on it. On top of that things feel less bleak to me because we have been unlocking the mysterious recruiting box. I have never seen us recruit well, outside of a couple good Darrell Dickey classes, until recently. Now to say something deeply unpopular. Mason Fine is not a big game player. He has racked up amazing stats against lower and equal teams. When it comes to winning the big game not only does the team lay an egg but Mason generally looks pedestrian at best. I think he is a good player and even better human being but I think he shares some blame in the teams big game woes.
  12. My understanding this will be built in the park area between where all the RV's park on game day and the road. Which is why it upsets me on a selfish level. I love parking my trailer there and letting the kids play all day on game day. That said I don't come to enough games to truly be upset but as it currently stands UNT has the best tailgaiting areas of any school. I just hate to see that messed with.
  13. Possible the 17 is only those watching on FB
  14. Only 17 people watching on FB. Can that be right?
  15. I looked across that field and saw a team that was over matched above all else. Occasionally you win those, most often you lose and sometimes you get blown out. So how should I think about the current state of affairs? Should we compare it to the end of Dickey years? Towards the end of Dickey era he was recruiting a bunch of 1 stars and in total despair about the programs lack of funding, leadership support and fans. He was burnt out and not motivated and I can't blame him. The current state of the Seth era? He is on the verge of two great recruiting classes in a row. He has full support and funding from the University. His facilities are as good in the G5 as you will find anywhere in the nation. Finally he has seen some of the best crowds for home games in the programs history. Seth has zero reason to be discouraged about the future and nowhere to lay blame except at his own feet. I fully believe that Seth is in himself a work in-progress and he will keep learning and building and improving. He is in the perfect situation to do just that. And, if he is the kind of coach that his bad years is 5-6 wins and the good years we are competing for championships then I would say its a big risk to think we should replace him.
