  1. I was somewhat surprised to see that UNLV score. You guys really should keep your chins up because you are just a few plays away from being competitive in all your games. The funny thing was I was in Vegas just last week for a conference. I was playing blackjack during one of the breaks. As it turns out the dealer from our table was originally from McKinney and had at one time attended NTSU but did not graduate. Older looking guy, we struck up a conversation in between games and he was unaware that we had played you earlier in the season. Said said he never attended a game while he was in school or after he left. He was a real nice guy though. I actually won a ton of money at his table and left him a big tip.
  2. In the opener matchup versus UTEP, North Texas scored 14 points in both the second and third quarters during a 31-13 win. Austin Aune threw for 236 yards and three scores, while Ayo Adeyi rushed for 80 yards on 17 carries. Roderic Burns posted three catches for 72 yards as well. The Mustangs are 5-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games and 22-7 ATS in their last 29 in September. SMU is 8-21 in their last 29 road games. Meanwhile, the Green are 5-0 ATS in their last five on turf and 6-1 ATS in their last seven overall. North Texas is 0-4 ATS in their last four versus the AAC. PICK: I’m probably going with SMU here. New head coach Rhett Lashlee and his staff have their work cut out for them, but if all goes well the Mustangs are certainly capable of making some noise in the conference this year. Three of the team’s top four targets (Danny Gray, Reggie Roberson and Grant Calcaterra) are gone, so we’ll be seeing some new faces in the fray along with No. 1 receiver Rashee Rice. SMU should throw the ball often, and if the running game can tag along with average numbers the team will win games. I think it’ll all start here with a cover. That said, North Texas looked pretty good against UTEP with their 24 first downs and 5.7 yards per play on Saturday. You wouldn’t be crazy for jumping on the Mean Green bandwagon.

  3. Just wanted to come by and wish you guys good luck out west this week. My understanding is our entire team and coaching staff is watching this game together in the Armstrong center. Should be a good game. Heck I may even watch some of it. My wife is having a couples shower at our house that night. Our caterer attended UNT and I told him we would have the game showing in the background. He wasn't aware UNT fielded a team, but was pleased to know that they had one now and was looking forward to watching some of it.
  4. This is a link to more information about our newly formed NIL. I had several PM's asking me about this and I figured I would put out this link for everyone that is interested in UNT doing something similar to us now that we are in the same conference. I think this same concept could work well for you. Good luck to you guys. https://www.ponysportsdtx.com/
  5. Thank you for that. He was a great coach and even better man.
  6. It sounded like SMU had a decent shot but if Jimbo is involved I would bet he will become an Aggie.
  7. It sounds like there are conversations going on with SMU as well. He and Trey Siggers are good friends.
  8. No offense meant, but most SMU fans would like us to keep your game at the beginning of the season like it has been in the past. We prefer to play teams like Memphis at the end as those games typically will determine who wins the conference. Now if they decide to get rid of divisions it's possible we won't even play every year. You have to keep in mind, a lot of the AAC teams want to get games in DFW because it helps their recruiting. So there will be a big push to remove the divisions or at least allow for some games between the two. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
  9. I think SMU has upped their academic game somewhat in the past 5-10 years but it is not and never will be Rice. It also depends on the major. In engineering, business and especially law SMU is top notch and nationally ranked. On the other hand I think you can argue that the education at UNT for the amount spent is a pretty good value given that the NT tuition is close to what a student might spend at a community college like El Centro or TCJC. NT is a good choice if money is an issue and you aren't worried about things like rankings and starting salary. For example, the lady who catered our Memorial Day gathering just yesterday was a proud NT graduate and she seemed very much on the ball.
  10. North Texas fans could be right on this one being a bust. I mean why would he leave Bama is my question. I will always give you guys the benefit of the doubt. My yard guy went to NT and he seems to be a pretty sharp guy and right about a lot of things.
  11. That's quite a big loss there. Sorry for you guys.
  12. No way and also and according to my sources we were never seriously interested in McCasland in the first place. There must have been some false leaks going on out there on this one.
  13. Love SMU but SMU does not have a better academic rep than Texas A&M.
