  1. So ready to get out of this garbage conference. 0 night games after Memphis and 0 home night games after Texas Southern. Cannot wait until we get nice Friday night/Saturday night games on ESPN once in a while and can actually rewatch them later without cable. I haven't been able to rewatch a NT football game in full in years because they get lost in the ether thanks to Judy's inability market her product. See ya, CUSA!
  2. Big Game Boomer has about as much credibility as Amber Heard Plus KD a top 5 LB in CFB don't @ me
  3. Beating UTSA and getting a top 25 rank and a conference championship sounds even better.
  4. And we're getting Oscar back this year. We're gonna do it to them again lololol
  5. The talent is there. I don't know what went cataclysmically wrong with his confidence last year. Maybe it was the slow ass tempo. I don't know. I'm not particularly interested in getting excited for another 1-6 start and another bowl loss and another season of getting smacked around by rival schools. If Ruder is the guy he has to be THE guy.
  6. According to Roach's twitter, UTEP is his only other FBS offer at the moment. Are you aware that our 2022 class ranks ahead of only FIU, FAU and UTEP in CUSA on 247's system? Our 247 average class rating is at an 82.01. Lower than every FBS school in Texas except for UTEP. You'll forgive me for being trite but this is really frustrating that we are seemingly the best option for a lot of D2-level guys while the rest of FBS collects transfers from each other.
  7. Wow, very reassuring to know we're beating out West Texas A&M and Pittsburgh State for recruits. Yawn.
  8. The same SMU that has beaten us by a combined 73 points the last 3 years?
  9. We've lost all five of those bowls. 4 of them by at least 13 points, 2 by 35+. I'm sorry to be that guy, but we should have higher expectations of our program. You can argue that historically this is better than we've ever had it and yeah, that's probably true, but I'm sorry, I don't see 0-5 in the postseason and a 3-14 record against SMU/La Tech/UAB under Littrell as anything worth saying "Well, at least we have this!" over. TCU can have 10 win seasons and championship contention. SMU can get ranked and have success. UTSA did it this year. I don't understand why expecting more from North Texas is frowned upon. I don't fundamentally disagree with what you're saying. It is the best and most optimistic era of NT football we've ever had, but complacency is just going to keep us where we're at. We are not one guy away from 9-10 wins next year. Are we all of a sudden going to figure out how to beat the Ponies? Louisiana Tech was awful this year and they still beat us. I just don't understand why wanting more and not being complacent is a bad thing.
  10. I know what expectations to place and not to place on this program. But as someone who gives to the MGSF, is a season ticket holder, etc., I am truly finding it hard to care about the upcoming season. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars per seat for me and my family to watch us get the tar beat out of us, and that's the likely scenario. I've done it for six years (which is nothing compared to some others on this board lolololol). Southern Miss was probably a shoe-in win for us this year at home, and that game will be gone now. SMU is going to kick us up and down the field once again. UTSA is not going to bend over and take it in San Antonio. They HATE us and will want to get payback. What can be done to generate hope and higher expectations? Because I really do not feel like giving hundreds of dollars to the program this year, but I do not want to back down from my unwavering support of this team.
  11. Toledo -10 WKU +3 if Zappe plays Fresno state by a million over UTEP BYU - 7 Louisiana -5 Old Dominion + 9.5 UTSA -2.5 North Texas +3.5
  12. Since this has taken a turn into QB discussion (no way!), feels like it's important to point out Ruder is naturally talented enough to be a very VERY good QB for us. If he stays, he'll have a full offseason to get his confidence back and be our guy next year. If he leaves, it's probably best for him considering Head/Drummond will both be legitimate starting candidates next year - at least it seems that way. As many have said on here... no need to be jerks about it.
  13. Ja'Mari Maclin is transferring from an SEC school. JD Head had massive interest from Texas Tech and started two games in November for La Tech (and did pretty good). Don't know much about Savage but his film is promising. Y'all have been pining for transfer portal players forever. Here's 3 good ones. Wish negativity was not the initial reaction.
  14. Jack Sorenson is an amazing WR. Super speedy and has been a lethal deep threat this year. Will be hard to contain him, but man is he fun to watch.
  15. I spent the afternoon compiling some stats and notes on Miami to give everyone a quick rundown of what kind of team they are. Enjoy!
  16. I argue that Seth is worth keeping as long as he keeps passing thresholds. We effin' sucked against teams above 500 under Seth. 2 of our last 5 wins were over teams with winning records. We effin sucked against UTSA in 2020 and could've let the rivalry go entirely in their favor, and he made sure the exact opposite happened. We effin' sucked doing anything on offense in September/October and he kept having faith in his OL and RBs. Aune got so much better throughout the year. The OL got so much better. Ragsdale and Adeyi have emerged as the RBs of the near future. Our defense is the second most improved in FBS. We expect relevance from Seth Littrell and he has not given it to us. Beating UTSA is relevance. Winning a bowl game is relevance. I do think he is not the right guy to lead us into the AAC BUT If he can win the bowl, and show that things are steering in the right direction, I am willing to be patient with him in 2022. I am still of the belief that a decent to good QB on this roster as is gets us 8-9 wins. I do not believe we lose to SMU, UAB or Louisiana Tech with a competent, reliable QB.
  17. I don't care who we play and I don't care where we play. Just win.
  18. CUSA and Judy can go kick rocks. We reppin the AAC in this bowl bitch
  19. Deserves more credit. Has shut me, a former hater, up. I really was not a fan of his hire given his resume but our DL is one of the best in the conference this year and have only become more disciplined and more aggressive.
