  1. The Ath. DEpt. has invited Mark Cuban to the game. With Bracey Wright from The Colony playing for IU, should be a pretty good crowd.
  2. Offense puts asses in the seat, DEFENSE wins Championships. Who among the Mavs starting five plays defense. Exactly NO ONE. The Mavs will win no more than 50 games and be the fourth or fifth seed in the West. They will be eliminated by the Minnesota Timber Wolves in the first round of the playoffs. Mark it down.
  3. Who is going to stop Duncan? Who is going to stop Shaq? Who is going to stop Yao Ming? Who is going to stop Divac? The Mavs are the third best team in the MidWest nad the fifth best team in the Western Conference.
  4. From SoccerBuzz.com North Texas stuns #20 Denver The University of Denver fell to North Texas 3-2 in two overtimes in Denton, Texas. This loss marks the Pioneers' first conference loss in 25 matches. The last loss recorded against a conference team was on September 21, 2001, against North Texas. Senior Melissa Behrent and junior Maggie Kirchhoff scored the Pioneers' two goals. The loss snaps Denver's seven game winning streak and drops them to 9-2-0 (2-1-0) on the season. The Pioneers were tied when freshman goalkeeper Danielle Wiley received a red card in the 76th minute for touching the ball out of the box. The game remained tied and was forced into its first overtime. The match was still scoreless until North Texas struck with 24 seconds left in the second overtime. A goal from Kristen Campbell ended the Pioneers winning streak and put North Texas up 3-2. Way to Go Lady Eagles!!!!
  5. Rockets misfire as Clemens rallies By David King San Antonio Express-News Web Posted : 10/04/2003 12:00 AM The Clemens Buffaloes needed no pep talks at halftime, no win-one-for-the-Gipper speeches. All they needed was to remember to hang on to the ball and stop the Judson Rockets' big plays. They did both, in abundance, Friday night in rallying from a two-touchdown halftime deficit to win 26-21 in front of an overflow crowd of 8,031 at Judson Stadium. "We felt like we just needed to stop the mistakes on the big plays and come together as a team," said Clemens tackle Yaniv Barrett, who led a Buffs defense that gave up 1 yard of total offense and no first downs to the Rockets in the second half. The Buffs (4-1, 1-1 26-5A) scored all of their comeback points in the fourth quarter, using drives of 47, 52 and 45 yards to claim the victory in the Cibolo Creek showdown. Sophomore running back James Henry led the Clemens offense, rushing for 133 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns, all in the second half. "That little sophomore did a heck of a job," Clemens coach Robert Lehnhoff said. "We lost some kids to grades this week, and we knew he had to step up." Henry had a 23-yard gain in the Buffs' first scoring drive of the fourth quarter, then gained 40 yards and scored from the 3 on the march that made it 21-20. A bad snap doomed the extra-point pick, but it didn't matter — Judson was going nowhere fast on offense and the Buffs were rolling. On the third play of Clemens' next possession, Henry sprinted 34 yards for the clincher (the pass for two failed). An interception ended Judson's last possession of the game. "Our defense just played awesome," Lehnhoff said. Indeed. Judson's three touchdowns in the second quarter came on three big plays. Take away Chancy Campbell's 67-yard touchdown run and Joel Waldon's scoring passes of 48 yards to Brian Robinson and 17 yards to Shawn Small and the Rockets had 103 yards of offense. Clemens lost three fumbles in the first half after driving 70 yards to take a 7-0 lead on a 39-yard run by Ben Tedtaotao and Matt Litt's extra point. "We kept fumbling the ball and putting our defense in a hole," Lehnhoff said. But then Henry, who also played some in the defensive secondary for the Buffs, took over the offense. "He's a heck of an athlete," Lehnhoff said. And it was a heck of a victory for the Buffs, who have come up short in close battles with the Rockets the past two years. "Anytime you beat a team like Judson, it's a big plus for your program," Lehnhoff said. Barnett, the 290-pound anchor of the Clemens defense, agreed. "This is the best, oh yes," he said. "We seem to have lost to them for years and years."
  6. That Drew is a good kid, a good qb, who just made a bad decision like many of us have done before.
  7. Nuggets sign Marcus! DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets signed rookie free agent center Chris Marcus on Thursday, expressing confidence in his future despite injuries. Terms were not released. The 7-foot-1 Marcus averaged 14.1 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.71 blocks in 79 games at Western Kentucky. Foot injuries limited him to 19 games over his final two seasons. “Chris has experienced some setbacks with injuries, but he has worked very hard to earn this opportunity,” Nuggets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe said. “We feel he has a very bright future.”
  8. Cerebrus, Please move this thread to the NON-UNT sports board. It has degenerated into Cowboy vs. Texas or Cowboy fan vs. Jerry Jones. I realize that Toby Gowin is a Cowboy, but this thread belongs elsewhere. I keep reading it thinking there is NEWS about Don, but I find more needless COWBOY drivel.
  9. Are you surprised. Look at our record over the last five years.

  11. Never got the ball I didn't shoot team Donnel Hayden Jon Manning K. Dubose Don't forget Pat Nash, played around the time as Hayden. If he was in the building, he thought he was open.
  12. It takes money to recruit internationally. Money, we do not have!!

North Texas Soccer Falls To Baylor 4-3 In Overtime WACO, Tex (8/31/03)-- Bethany Vick scored in the fourth minute of overtime to lift the Baylor Bears past North Texas (1-1) 4-3 in the championship game of the Baylor Labor Day Classic.

  15. Brianna got her first, of what I hope is many, shut out of the year.
  16. Rockwall hires UNT alumnus Blakeman ROCKWALL — Former North Texas volleyball player Nicole Blakeman was hired this week as head volleyball coach for Rockwall High School. Blakeman, who played for UNT under the last name Barzilla before marrying, graduated from UNT in 1993 and then went on to Clear Lake High School. After serving as an assistant for one year, she took the head coaching job and went on an eight-year run, picking up her 200th victory in 2002. Rockwall athletic director Mark Elam jumped at the opportunity to hire Blakeman. "We’re excited about her being here," said Elam. "I just liked her presence and her passion for the sport. She was successful at Clear Lake, and she’s just the type of person we need to come in and help us. We’re a growing community, and our girls track team and basketball team have both seen success. I think our volleyball team is ready for that type of progression." Blakeman said she was ready for the challenge. "It’s a rebuilding program, and I thought that would be a great challenge," she said. "It’s a great area, and I’ll have a full-time assistant coach. — Staff report
  17. But if she stays with him. She'll get even more. I don't know what to think. I can't get any hotel clerk to come to my room at midnight. She knew what she was going there for. But if she said No. Nothing should have happened.
  18. I'm glad the baby is healthy. That's good news. I wish CD all of the luck in accomplishing his goals.
  19. When is the Darrell Dickey Invitational Football game (i.e. The New Orleans Bowl). Does it interfere with the IU game. If the IU game is after the NO Bowl, maybe we can present the Bowl Trophy to the crowd.
  20. I know we wouldn't give him a 5-year-deal, but going to the red army. That hurts. That's like Booger transfering to MUTS.
  21. The first NBA draft took place in1947. The 50 draft was 10 rounds for some teams and 12 for others. The 1951 draft was 12 rounds. The draft was 10 round as late 1984. The NBA Draft was 7 rounds until 1987, when a new Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NBA and the Players Association reduced the college draft to three rounds in 1988 and two rounds in 1989. It has remained that way since.
  22. The Spurs behind league MVP Tim Duncan will close out the NJ Nets this evening. This series has not been highly-rated or well-played, but the Spurs two losses, in which they played horribley, is by a total of three points. That tells you how dominant San Antonio has been in this series. They shoot under 30 percent and the Nets shoot close to 60 percent and the Spurs lose only by one. I like J Kidd, but he doesn't deserve an NBA Title just yet. Maybe next year. GMG
  23. Former Lincoln star to enter NBA draft 05/10/2003 By CALVIN WATKINS / The Dallas Morning News Lincoln graduate Chris Bosh announced he's leaving college to enter the NBA Draft. Bosh made the annnouncement at Lincoln High School, surrounded by a dozen friends and family and his college coach, Paul Hewitt of Georgia Tech. "It was a very difficult decsion," Bosh said. "I enjoyed myself at Georgia Tech. It was really tough because I had teammates there that were depending on me. But this was the best decision for me at this time." Bosh, a freshman at Georgia Tech, has been projected as a lottery pick. At 6-10, the power forward was the ACC freshman of the year and led the conference in field goal percentage at 55.8 percent. Bosh's high school coach Leonard Bishop said the announcement at Lincoln is a tribute to the 2002 team that won a Class 4A and mythical national title. College underclassmen have until Monday to become early entry candidates for the NBA Draft. NCAA rules also allow underclassmen to retain their amateur status if they do not sign with an agent or are not drafted. Bosh said he's not signed with an agent, but a public relations firm has been retained to help with today's news conference.
