    What do you mean? He was getting his chance until he got injured.

    Uhhhh i mean he waited forever to get a chance at UNT, didn't, transferred somewhere he thought he could and gets a major injury before October? Obviously i hope it's a minor setback for him but it would really be disappointing for him I assume.

  2. It's the complacency, and the complete and utter silence from anyone involved with the team after these losses happen. It's week 3 and we've lost two games by 31+ points. Tomorrow the FB account will tweet something about "its game week vs memphis!" and move on like nothing happened, just like we did after losing by 38 to SMU. There's no accountability or respect for the name on the jersey. THAT is what enrages me. Not the occasional loss.

  3. I'm as frustrated as anybody, and I admit to being a bit of a Wren homer, but hear me out. Football is, essentially, the only major sport at UNT that hasn't seen some level of demonstrable success in the last six years, and to be fair, we were rolling with tremendous upside under Littrell heading into 2019. 

    I would implore people to just wait until he has the opportunity to make his football hire. Yes, it's overdue, but the extension at the time was deserved for SL and Wren has overwhelmingly contributed to improving our brand. Hell, this sorry team is gonna be competing in a vastly superior conference starting next year because of WB. He needs to get SL out the door ASAP. It's a band aid that needs to be ripped off and there's no other way to put it, but I've said it before, until we were 1-6 last year there wasn't really a right moment to do it and we rattled off five straight wins. Should he have made the rip by now? Definitely. I can assure you we are much closer to the end of the SL tenure than the beginning here and Wren's track record at heading an athletic department leads me to believe he will make a considerable upgrade.

  4. Y'all can it please. We just got absolutely slapped around like the little brother that we are and that our school chooses to be to SMU. Maybe don't lose to the most important team on your schedule by 30 for the second time in three years and then you can say stuff like this.

    Their money and time would be better spent supporting/growing our new NIL Collective or MGSF. Baseball isn't going to advance our athletics department. 

    Yeah man baseball hasnt proven it can advance any TX programs, just look at Rice, or Texas, or Texas Tech, or DBU, or TCU, or A&M, or

    We will always support our alma mater even when we don't agree with the direction leadership is taking.  That said I think we lose a lot of fence sitting fans such as yourself and others by retaining Seth another year for sure.

    I will still be in attendance at games but I certainly am not spending the amount on season tickets that I have in recent years. In recent years I've skipped weddings (not important ones lol) and all myriad of personal stuff in the fall curating my schedule around MGFB but i just dont have the patience to do that this year for a team I know will finish 6-6 ish. Not to beat a dead horse but barring drastic improvements we're looking at probably a hefty loss to SMU, Memphis, and others. And I really hope I'm wrong. But the track record is there.

    I wouldn't even call it fence sitting or frustration, I just feel... jaded? I still care and will be present but I don't care like I did a few years ago (i'm 25+recent grad)

  7. No one is going to like to hear this, but we can barely get 10k to a game on a good day when the program isn't at soaring heights. Let's worry about winning and steady, consistent competitiveness before we open an expansion thread for the 300th time. Respectfully!

    I don't blame him. You can only get so far at UNT, A&M despite the cult fanbase, is a great place to improve as a football player.

    This is the reality for you Group of Five schools. Your best players will eventually want to be on a bigger stage against stronger opponents and that's something you simply cannot find at a G5 school no matter how much you may like it there.

     

    This is a Power Five ran football world. You have to get with the times or continue to be passed up and left behind.

     

    Maybe there could offer some good NILs deals for UNT players but honestly, who in Denton or even Dallas is actually going to step up to the plate for that?

    "You group of five schools" 
     

    Either a really poor troll joke or blatant lack of self-awareness.
