  1. Sorry - got distracted, the Judge is actually a sitting Judge that sat "on the hill" - I'm making bank on "predictit.org" right now - ttyl! #GMG
  2. One UP for this - wouldn't let me do it in the traditional way 🤷‍♂️
  3. (Sorry for the delay!) On board, well qualified #GMG
  4. Sorry for the delay, traveling at the moment. So, we had been staking out the site for the new Apogee Stadium for a while and we had some great tailgates at Fouts and we wanted to continue that but needed an extended space that didn't cost anything (we were working and in classes at the time). So one of the guys in the group says, basically, "listen, you buy the food and the drinks, and you (different guy) bring everything in your truck to set up, I'll make sure we get the space." We're all friends and you know it's "one for all, all for one" but he was insistent on saving the best space, t
  5. I've got a great story how the "King of the Hill" became a Fire Chief (in the DFW Area), a Judge (in the DFW Area), and a Top Personal Trainer in the (DFW Area)!
  6. I think this comes down to philosophy; I believe you recruit the best talent you can and then work with what you've got. I would also say that the epitome of college football (Alabama) has done that with the turnover of their OC/DC through their dynastic run - to me, from a recruiting perspective, you recruit the best you can at each position every offseason, if that means you cut a senior short because you've got a better Junior-transfer then you do it. Players are now open to transfer when and how they see fit and coaches are hired/fired based off wins/losses then it's got to go both ways
  7. That's an interesting take that I hadn't really thought of, and that's probably where things get blurry as it's open to interpretation of what is and what isn't fair criticism. I agree - I was (amongst the many) calling for Jason Garrett to be fired years before he was, still cheered every game day, wanted the Cowboys to do well and believe(d) we can win every game and the Super Bowl every year (I'm a hopeless romantic in that way haha!).
  8. Anyone outside of Texas able to watch/stream the UIL State Championship games?? I've usually been good with a VPN on my FireStick but it looks like Fox Sports and Fox Sports Go are now going around VPNs - can't find anywhere to even purchase the game?? If anyone has or knows of a way, I'd be grateful! (I have an Amazon FireStick and Mac Laptop that I can screencast from) Thanks!! PS - I Can't believe they're not streaming tomorrows games nationally, I've gotta think there'd be a pretty big audience for it all things considered!
  9. Just wanted to gauge the audience's opinion with this poll. Yesterday saw a lot of action on the boards with a few "negative" comments, responses, etc and I'm curious to see how everyone views the proposition of where the line falls between being critical vs. supportive. In my opinion, one can be extremely harsh/critical, even "negative", and still show up with full force support on game days and hope for a positive outcome. To me, being critical or even "negative" doesn't necessarily equate to being unsupportive or against a certain proposition. More importantly, what are your thought
  10. *I believe his total buyout is $1.215 million
  11. I think the price for a quality coordinator goes up every day, we're battling in a market with some more prominent openings and we lost leverage the day it was announced that Bowen wouldn't be back. The better play would have been what Texas did, stay with your guy until you find the guy to replace them. (Hard to know for sure but the earliest SL probably thought about making a change was before the bowl game and the latest the week after) From ESPN Article: Del Conte said the three administrators served as the search committee and that in one of their earliest discussions, Eltife
  12. I'm really looking forward to this! I remember talking to Riley in the old snake pit after his dad was let go, he was shooting hoops by himself and he was so beatdown and dejected. I don't remember what all his injuries were but he had some significant ones, played through them, moved positions, took heat for replacing Vizza who had a great freshman year before he came in, and of course the failure to win on the field; he carried a lot of that with him, a lot of pride and heart with that one! I don't remember what we talked about but I remember feeling bad for him at the time and was disappoi
  13. A piece of advice I received once but haven't forgotten, came from a college coach who said "when things aren't going well, you better give them something to talk about, if not, they're going to talk about you." We were talking in the context of an administrator who had gone silent for a while and it was amazing how much was starting to come out about their perceived lack of leadership, ability, etc. A great example would be UT firing Herman at Noon and announcing Sark at 4pm (I'm not sure of the times but you get the gist). People were talking about Herman for a few hours and then it
  14. Taking a look at it, going from this link: https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/30675288/michigan-coach-jim-harbaugh-reach-contract-extension Harbaugh's new contract will pay him a base salary of $4 million in 2021, which will increase to $4.426 million in 2025. He can earn a maximum bonus of $3.475 million in each year of the contract, including: $1 million bonuses for winning the Big Ten championship and CFP national championship $500,000 bonuses for winning the Big Ten East Division and reaching the College Football Playoff. I laid it out on sprea
  15. Not sure if you were serious about this but Karl Scott, current CB Coach at 'Bama stands out if that's the case: https://rolltide.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/karl-scott/1077 Before 'Bama: Scott spent the previous two seasons as the secondary coach at Texas Tech before being named the defensive coordinator at Louisiana-Lafayette in late December of 2017. His secondary at Texas Tech in 2017 posted an impressive turnaround, helping produce 29 turnovers, including 14 interceptions. Before Tech: Scott worked at Southeastern Louisiana for three years, serving as the d
  16. Thanks Y'all, and @untbowler yeah, one of his close friends and the guy who started at QB before him plays baseball (and starts) as a freshman at Sam Houston, I guess that'll be my FCS team to follow from now on!
  17. Thanks for your responses and feedback. Little update: have heard that Sam Houston State has a very high interest in him but definitely an under the radar guy to watch - would like to see him in Denton and hope we didn’t overlook him (slightly worried that he ends up at UTSA which is close to home for him and burns us down the road).
  18. How would you rate this recruit (asking for a friend).... Gage Lowry out of La Vernia, TX (South Texas) - 2021 QB - 1st team all district 15-4A - District 14-4A D1 MVP - 6'6” 215lbs..... https://www.hudl.com/video/3/11366012/5f95ef260dcac8103cd5aa17 UNT Potential? D1, 2, or 3? Other? TIA
  19. I do believe contract positions are exempt from hiring freezes or exemptions as has been previously mentioned, to me it makes sense as there are a number of factors that don't calculate into the final decision such as retirement pay - I've often thought we could attract very serious and experienced coaches across the board with the attractive "TRS" retirements system which some coaches can avail themselves of while others are contracted employees!
  20. These three are huge in my opinion, calling plays, scheming against FBS talent and understanding the demands and expectations of a HC, if success follows those three then the other two are proverbial "cherry's on top", if they have a plan in place that fits with the vision (recruits, talent, and scheme) then it sounds like a win-win. A "win-win" should really be appreciated by the fan base/alumni at North Texas, we're not a P5 school but we are a G5 with high expectations (appropriately so) so there will always be a factor here or there that may limit us as far as talent that you can attract;
  21. I agree with @El Paso Eagle and the quote's from Brian Kelly and the timing of the decision allows for coaches around the country that may be a positional coach, for example, to look at the personnel, look at last years film, and put together a presentation as to why they would be a great fit for the program and compete for the job. When you're third from the bottom of FBS Football in Defense, there's nowhere to go but up and you've got a HC, AD, to convince and ultimately a room of assistants to convince and buy in, all are relying on the next hire to get it right! All included want the bes
