  1. Interesting looks like Grant will transition well to the AAC.
  2. Grant McCasland teaches DEFENSE with a capitol D. That's why he has a ring and a shot at another one.Statistically we play good defense. We do. But with the length, athleticsm, and talent we have we should be playing lights out, knock out, suffocating defense. Championship caliber defense.3's are the whole story of this game. I wanted to be at the game but an illness in the family has me on "covid protocol" so I had to watch this one from home. The TV announcers commented on how open North Texas was from 3. UNT does not let you get a good look and we gave them plenty. They shot 43.5% from three, we shot 16.7%. That's the ballgame. read more: http://hilltopperhaven.com/board/index.php/topic,12646.0.html
  3. Yes. If many of these programs are able to do what UTSA did I can certainly see UTA want their piece of the pie.
  4. I agree. Man Abou is going to be a damn monster!
  5. Why the animosity? Tonight should be a time of celebration. Let’s join together not criticize after such a big win. Peace.
  6. Hip hip hooray! What a fantastic win. And look it, when we beat WKU on the road we always get to the tourney!!!
  7. When I looked at it I was like, we are better than this. We CAN do better than this and I feel Wren needs to explain that clearly to Seth in his annual review and I am sure he will.
  8. I’m not going to get too into weeds into why this is happening or what can be done. That’s an equally long post and one I’m not the best person to write it. But what I do think is important to think about is that for many years, a lot of us tried to ignore this as a short-term trend. The BCS was too small. Nick Saban is too good. ESPN has an SEC bias. Nebraska, Michigan, USC, and Notre Dame are just one hire away from being right back there. Sure. There are portions of truth to all of those things. But how much of that is scapegoating the reality of a very real trend of regionalization of college football? How long does a perceived short-term new normal become the permanent new reality? When only a portion of the country enjoys the highs of a sport, it shrinks the audience elsewhere because it reaffirms the idea of a lower level of realistic achievement for your rooting interest. As elite coaches and top-tier recruits migrate towards the South the regional imbalance grows as does the level of interest in the sport.

  9. Marshall gets its next chance to turn the ship around Thursday when North Texas (9-4, 2-1) visits the Cam Henderson Center in Huntington. The Herd isn’t exactly the most confident group right now, D’Anotni said, but the team needs to keep working on the “goldfish mentality” its coach has been preaching about for the last month. “Any time you go 0-5 the last five games, confidence starts to erode a little bit,” D’Antoni said. “Like I’ve said before, you’ve got to have the memory of a goldfish. It’s over. We’re 0-0 and we’re going to take on North Texas.” read more: https://www.register-herald.com/sports/college_sports/dantoni-willing-to-try-some-new-things-to-end-skid/article_5e825eb9-5ffb-5c8d-b906-b1419de3312f.html
  10. You know I am really sensing a good amount of anomosity here. Just because some of our fans choose to be more patient doesn't make them any less important than those who do.
  11. I look at Neal Brown and now his OC being Graham Harrell and feel a twinge of jealousy.
  12. I disagree on Passwaters as well. He seems to be a young star. A bright future he has.
  13. The #UNT G. Brint Ryan College of Business has received the second-largest donation in its history from alumnus Wilson Jones (’85) and his wife, Jane. The Jones’ $5 million gift will create The Wilson Jones Career Center — a new space in the college that will provide more adequate and accessible support for career readiness. The generosity of Wilson and Jane Jones will improve career outcomes and opportunities for our students, and will enable our students to better develop industry relationships that will have long-term implications on the college’s reputation and rank. As one of the largest business schools in the nation, our goal is for every business student to participate in a degree-appropriate applied professional experience during their academic career. The Wilson Jones Career Center will help us achieve these goals and increase college outcomes as it serves as the essential bridge for Ryan College of Business students to access the world beyond UNT. Wilson’s recent generosity is not his first example of putting others first. Recently retired as the CEO of Oshkosh Corporation, Jones has lived by the motto: “Do the Right Thing.” He stood by these values because he firmly believes that a company that does the right thing ultimately benefits everyone — from team members and customers to suppliers and communities. This philosophy earned the Oshkosh company a No. 8 ranking on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies list, a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award for being one of the best places to work, recognition as a Military Friendly Employer by Victory Media and one of Ethisphere Institute’s World’s Most Ethical Companies, as well as a spot as one of The Wall Street Journal's “Best Managed Companies” from 2017 to 2019. Jones was named one of the top CEOs of 2018 and was honored with the UNT Distinguished Alumni Award and inducted into the G. Brint Ryan College of Business Hall of Fame in 2021. We are proud and honored to have the support of Wilson and Jane Jones as we take our college to the next level and support our students in new and exciting ways.
  14. UNT MEN’S BASKETBALL: Scott Named C-USA Freshman of the Week Again Scott Earns Second Consecutive Freshman of the Week Honor DALLAS, Texas – For the second consecutive week North Texas men's basketball freshman Aaron Scott has been named the Conference USA Freshman of the Week. The 2021-22 C-USA Players of the Week awards are presented by Surf & Turf Golf and announced by the league each Monday. Scott was perfect from the field this past week in the Mean Green's two games combined and the Spring, Texas, native averaged over six points per game. He scored nine points on Saturday in UNT's 70-63 win over Middle Tennessee as he came off the bench and played a season-high 30 minutes. This is the second consecutive week he's been named the C-USA Freshman of the Week. He becomes the first North Texas freshman to earn the honor twice in a season since Ryan Woolridge and AJ Lawson each won it multiple times in the 2016-17 season. Woolridge also earned it in consecutive weeks that season. Scott is the first C-USA freshman this year to earn the award in consecutive weeks. His nine points on Saturday versus Middle Tennessee are the second-most he's scored in a game this season. Scott averaged three rebounds per game this week as well. UNT is on road this coming week as they travel to Marshall on Thursday and then WKU on Saturday. The games are scheduled to tip-off at 6 p.m. CT and 3 p.m. CT, respectively.
  15. Great analogy @Brett Vito. It did seem like a heavyweight battle last night. Great game we just came up short as we often do in these big games. Would love to know UNT's overall winning percentage in big games and rivalry games that matter.
  16. Jimmerson killing us with the skyhooks.
  17. Bell is having a horrible game.
  18. I would like to add that it was neat to get a UNT segment from John Rothstein at the half. I thought he made a valid point, stating that McCasland had to replace both Mo Gibson (OU) and James Reese (South Carolina) and yet has managed to keep the talent level high. McCasland truly is a jewel for us.
