  2. This article forgot a big date for MTSU: Sept. 10 Annual loss to eventual conference champions, North Texas
  3. I say throw them out. Then they'd have to go I-A in football to get into a conference. They think they are so big and bad in hoops. Let them try to get into a conference as good as the Sunbelt without Football. Wright Waters needs to tell them if they want to stay in the Sunbelt, then they need to play Football. If not, then tell them Bye, Bye!
  4. Joey Byerly is a GREAT fit for DD's system. Why are you so down on him?
  5. The BIG question is are they interested in such a position?
  6. Young had a no-no through 80 pitches 6 1/3 innings and 11 pitches later he had given up 3 earned runs & 2 Home runs. But he's still pitching good.
  7. I believe ir will be Byerly, if he's eligible. And I hope he will be.

  10. I wonder what Schnellenberger will say on Oct. 16 after a 20 point loss at home in Miami!!!
  11. WKUFANLee Locker room fodder for what girls cross country? WKU needs to worry about getting it's ship straight, before they start worrying about locker room fodder!
  12. Harry, Good to see you've come around to my way of thinking. I've said for 2 years that McNac is a protype blocking fullback. He's not fast enough to be an effective linebacker, but he's big & strong enough to take on a linebacker as a blocker. I think he'd be a devestating blocker!!!

  14. Deon Hunter was my favorite player. Could penetrate, shoot and dish. If you like fundamental basketball, he was the man for you.

  18. Rowlett track star races to North Texas By: LEE STRAIN Few Eagles have flown higher than Shayla Hart, the Rowlett High School Female Athlete of the Year. The National Honor Society student finished in the top ten percent of the 2005 graduating class and has signed to continue her scholarly and sprinting excellence as an Eagle for North Texas University. Hart led the way in the Rowlett girls track team's second-place overall finish at the district track meet last month. She cruised to a record-setting win in the 400-meter run and anchored the Lady Eagles to a first place finish in the 800-meter relay. "Shayla contributed not just with points in her events but in her work ethic showing the younger athletes what it takes to be successful," Rowlett track coach Ray Young said. "She works out at a different level. The younger kids see that and they know they have to bring their game up if they want to be here signing scholarship papers." Hart's mother, Renee said that her daughter, a student with a 3.9 grade point average, got her academic genes from her father, Rickey. Hart attributes her athletic abilities to her father, as well, but Rickey gives the credit to his daughter. "I was a good athlete but I told her that she was superior to me because I would not have been as committed to do my homework, chores then work-out like she does," Rickey said. "She has been able to juggle so many things. I know I would not have been that dedicated at her age." Many schools such as TCU, Texas, Oklahoma and Texas State and UTA have recruited her talents this year. That wasn't the case in 2004, even though she was the district champion in the 400 meters. "She was Texas' best secret," Renee said. Attending school close to home was an important consideration for Hart when narrowing down her choices. The reception she received on her first visit to North Texas made her feel more at home than any other. "I didn't need to visit any other schools. I just did it for the experience," she said. "I felt very comfortable when I first got to the campus. The coach picked me up from the academic center and we were able to talk. The girls were cool. We had lunch at the cafeteria. They all talked to me." Hart is concentrating on excelling in her basic classes and is keeping her career options open. The Student Council and Mu Alpha Theta member is considering utilizing her math skills in the engineering field or she may decide to go with her heart. "I want to do something dealing with children, maybe in pediatrics or in a counseling center," she said. The future will take care of itself for Hart. Her track career is more immediate and is just now blossoming. Inspired by her parents' personal trainer Kevin Jordan and private track coach Tony Miller, Hart is focused on her track career. Miller was a finalist in the U.S. Olympic trials. "He knows how to run the 400," Hart said of Miller. "He said 'I run like him' so it will be easy for him to teach me how to run so I can go as far as I can go. Hopefully, I can make it to the Olympics." Hart came to Rowlett a talented basketball player but gave it up her senior year in order to direct all her energies to track. She leaves with many accolades and with an important lesson learned. "When I first came to this school, I thought I had to be in the 'in-crowd,' and sit at the same table at lunch," she said. "When I became an upper-classman I found that none of that matters as long as you have friends that care about you." Managing Editor Daren Watkins 303 N.

  19. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Denver made sure the biggest celebration was the last one. Freshman Paul Stastny scored two goals and Peter Mannino made them stand up with an almost flawless performance in goal to help Denver successfully defend its national title with a 4-1 victory over North Dakota on Saturday night. After coach George Gwozdecky won his 400th game the last time Denver beat North Dakota, last month in the conference semifinals, he stopped the celebration to address his team. "I told them, 'Thank you very much. But it sure would be a lot sweeter to celebrate after No. 405,'" Gwozdecky said. It was the seventh national title for Denver (32-9-2), which was ranked No. 1 for most of the season. Stastny, the son of Hall of Famer Peter Stastny, also had an assist on Gabe Gauthier's empty-netter. Jeff Drummond scored the Pioneers' first goal, Kevin Ulanski had two assists and Gauthier had an assist to go with his 26th goal of the year. Mannino, who was selected the most outstanding player of the Frozen Four, had a career-high 44 saves two nights after stopping 41 shots in a 6-2 win over Colorado College in the semifinals. "My team allowed me to see the puck," Mannino said. "When there were rebounds, they cleaned them right away. I just wanted to keep them (the Fighting Sioux) off the board, and it worked out." With the score tied 1-1 midway through the second period, Denver scored on a power play. The Pioneers had six power-play goals in their win in the semis after scoring on just three of their 45 power-play chances leading into the Frozen Four. Ulanski's hard slap shot from the top of the right circle sliced through heavy traffic in the slot and appeared to glance off Stastny's stick. Stastny redirected it high over the right shoulder of goaltender Jordan Parise, who could do nothing but watch the puck settle into the net. Only it didn't glance off Stastny's stick. "It hit me right in the butt," he said with a laugh. Stastny added his 17th goal in the third period to give Mannino and the Pioneers' defense a cushion. Again on the power play, defenseman Carle faked a defender to the ice and then sidestepped him, throwing a blind pass back to the right where Stastny converted with a hard one-timer. "That was the second time that Matty had danced past a defender in the game," Stastny said. "He didn't even look. He just threw it right onto my tape." Mannino did the rest. The Fighting Sioux (25-15-5) pulled their goalie for a man advantage for most of the last two minutes but couldn't get the puck past him. He ran his record to 3-0-0 in NCAA play and has been at his best when the games mean the most, surrendering just five goals in his last six games. "He made an awful lot of good saves," said rookie North Dakota coach Dave Hakstol, who led his team to the title game despite a fifth-place finish in the league. "That's one factor you can't control in a hockey game -- how the guy wearing the pads at the other end is going to play." Denver improved to 7-2 in NCAA title games while sweeping all four meetings with the Fighting Sioux this season. The Pioneers' seventh title tied them with North Dakota for second place behind Michigan's nine. The Western Collegiate Hockey Association -- which became the first conference to have all the NCAA semifinalists -- has produced the last four national champions. Denver, 26-1-1 this year when scoring first, used a fluky goal to open the scoring. Ulanski found a loose puck on his stick as he skated past the goal line. Almost as an afterthought, he threw the puck at the crease and it ricocheted off the left skate of North Dakota defenseman Matt Smaby. Drummond was there to jam it in. Smaby hung his head when the goal light went on, while the Pioneers' fans danced and sang in celebration. "They got the bounces," North Dakota defenseman Matt Greene said. "Tonight just wasn't our night." The Fighting Sioux tied it when defenseman Nick Fuher took a soft shot from the point and teammate Travis Zajac reached out with his stick and redirected the puck -- with his back to the goal -- and the puck slipped between Mannino's leg pads. Parise, the son of former NHL star J.P. Parise, was at his best late in the second period, stopping five shots on one Denver power play.
  20. Softball: Florida International mows down UNT in doubleheader Golden Panthers pitcher sets two school strikeout records 09:05 AM CDT on Sunday, April 10, 2005 By Brett Vito / Staff Writer Florida International’s Tiffany Ore had not pitched in nearly three weeks when she took the mound for the second game of a doubleheader against North Texas on Saturday afternoon. If there was any rust left from the layoff, the Mean Green couldn’t detect it in both team’s Sun Belt Conference opener. Ore struck out the first 12 batters she faced in her initial outing after recovering from a shoulder injury and set a pair of school records in a 5-0 win over the Mean Green at Denia Park. The win put an exclamation point on the end of a dominating performance by Golden Panthers, who won the first game of the day 5-3. The sweep left UNT (7-22, 0-2) in the midst of an eight-game losing streak heading into a doubleheader against FIU (24-16, 2-0) at noon today that will complete the weekend series. "We didn’t show any intensity today," UNT coach Kelly Burns said. "We talked to them about picking that intensity up." Ore took advantage of a lackluster performance by UNT to earn a place in the FIU record books. The junior broke the Golden Panthers’ record for consecutive strikeouts in a game of nine set by Erin McCutcheon in a game against Campbell in 1998. She also set a new school record for strikeouts in a game with 17, one better than Leah Barnes’ school record of 16 set in a game against Palm Beach Atlantic in 2001. UNT didn’t put a ball in play during the second game until third baseman Susan Waters grounded out to lead off the fifth inning. FIU’s infielders let Waters’ pop fly drop in foul territory to give Ore a second chance at extending her strikeout streak just a few pitches earlier. Catcher Christen Jonse broke up Ore’s perfect game with a double to left field later in the fifth inning. "It was tough to come back from that start," Jonse said. "We were not aggressive enough at the plate." Burns said UNT let too many strikes go by early in the count and allowed Ore to rack up strikeouts with her rise ball. Ore’s performance was all the more impressive considering a pinched nerve in her shoulder had kept her off the mound for an extended period. "Tiffany had a lot of rest and that helped her today," FIU coach Kim Gwydir said. "She does not throw that hard, but she is deceptive. At the college level, it’s not about how hard you throw, it is about the movement on your pitches." FIU pitcher Amanda Nealer helped set the tone for the series when she picked up the win in the first game for the Golden Panthers. Nealer struck out 10 batters, including six straight in the second and third innings. One of the few highlights of the day for UNT came when the Mean Green scored three runs in the final three innings of the first game. Waters doubled and scored a run in the fifth inning. Pinch hitter Brittiny Chapman added an RBI single in the seventh when UNT scored a pair of runs. UNT was hoping to carry that run of success over to the second game while playing without one of its top players. First baseman Heather Bostic left the team after her brother died in a car accident on March 31. The sophomore attended the game, but did not play. She is expected to return to the team later this season. UNT appeared as if it might get on track against FIU without Bostic in the second game of the series, but the Mean Green ran into Ore and promptly dug a hole they couldn’t escape. "I was excited to pitch," Ore said. "I threw OK. I didn’t even think about the strikeouts during the game." UNT thought a lot about them after the game and now faces a critical doubleheader today. The Mean Green will head out for eight consecutive conference games on the road after completing their series with the Golden Panthers and their pitchers who dominated the first two games of their series. "Not to take anything away from their pitchers, but we swung at balls and took strikes," Burns said. "We have to start playing our game." BRETT VITO can be reached at 940-566-6870.

  21. Track & field: UNT’s Wesley qualifies for regionals Junior heptathlete sets Mean Green record 08:45 AM CDT on Friday, April 8, 2005 AUSTIN — North Texas junior Deidra Wesley shattered her school record in the heptathlon and punched her ticket to the NCAA regional championships Thursday during the 78th annual Texas Relays. Wesley posted a solid first day in the event and continued to roll in the final three events of the competition to finish in eighth place with 5,030 points. The regional provisional qualifying standard is 5,000 points for the event that features seven individual events. Wesley posted solid performances in the long jump (5.3 meters) and the javelin 97-8 before capping her day by recording a time of 2:31.34 in the 800-meter run. She also qualified for the regional meet in the high jump on the first day of the heptathlon when she tied the UNT record with a leap of 5-8.75. Wesley’s high jump mark is tied for the 14th-best in the country this season. She has qualified for the regional meet in the high jump in three straight seasons. Her mark in the high jump helped her shatter her own school record of 4,808 points in the heptathlon and become the first person in UNT history to qualify for the regional meet in the event. Kory Williams finished ninth in the preliminaries of the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 52.28. The senior, who held the nation’s fourth fastest time heading into the meet, will run in Saturday’s event finals. Sophomores Frank Ngeno and Josh Rogers finished in 19th and 22nd place in the 5,000-meter run. Ngeno finished in 15:57.58 while Rogers timed in at 16:31.62. Texas’ Trey Hardee put the finishing touches on a solid all-around performance Thursday to win the decathlon, edging teammate Donovan Kilmartin. Hardee placed first in the decathlon 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.41 seconds and immediately followed it with the second-best throw in the discus with 141 feet, 3 inches. The Texas Relays continue today with Mean Green record holders Jessica Henderson and Ciji Brooks competing in the discus and the shot put.
  22. Is this the kid who was home schooled and played for the Weatherford Express?
  23. Emmitt, There is a BIG difference between supporting a program and attending the game. No one doubts your support of the program, even when you have to work on a Saturday and miss a game in the fall. Lets face facts, it's easier to attend Basketball games if you live in Denton, than if you live in Fort Worth or South Dallas. Traffic does make a difference in my thinking as it does with most people. No matter how much I enjoy basketball, it is frustrating to drive an hour and a half in bumper-to-bumper traffic and then watch the team give-away a game they should win and then drive an hour home pissed off. I choose to listen to the game on line, it is much easier. But I still SUPPORT the program. And you're correct, 1,500 fans is about what you can expect until you post a 20-plus win season. Just the facts, not trying to start an argument, because we agree basketball attendance is lacking, but do not ever insinuate that I do not support this program!!!!
