  1. I guess you're serious, but are you not aware that the yearbook had the name right at that time?https://blogs.library.unt.edu/unt125/2015/06/22/name-change-unt/#:~:text=On May 15%2C 1988%2C the,College and Teacher's Training Institute
  2. If your spouse already has the cookbooks and is a fan, you can find this as a late Christmas present at your local Barnes and Noble or favorite local book retailer (too late for Amazon): Ree Drummond "Frontier Follies".
  3. Glad to see him get the touchdown for the niners, probably with his folks there in the stadium, as they always were in Denton.
  4. Denton can do food. Check out this National Geographic Article (just ignore everything else and scroll down to the picture and caption at the end of the piece):https://www.nationalgeographic.com/foodfeatures/meat/
  5. I have fond memories of that part of North Carolina; I wish I could make it Myrtle Beach again (went there once while stationed at Ft. Bragg with 82nd Airborne), but too short of a notice. It would be a nice drive there from Boone, I'm sure. I was up in Blowing Rock shortly after y'all beat Michigan, and enjoyed seeing all the pride being displayed by the folks going up there for the scenery before playing a Saturday game. I did wonder if winning in such notorious fashion wasn't a bit of a distraction from your conference play that year.
  6. If Dimel could get UNT to forfeit, getting a UTEP win out of it, that could get him to winning more than 3 games for the first time since 1999, a considerable achievement for him, but not one to ever get him hired at Houston again.
  7. I suspect you're right. I'd love for us to play them this year, but I'd never assume anything about us and UTEP.
  8. We haven't heard that one here in a long time, but people are really pretty proud of Euless these days, so it doesn't matter. As I recall in my original post, I invited people to fire away, so you're welcome. Yeah, we win at football around here. And really, I was just responding to another poster's slamming El Paso, I place I didn't care for the first few times I went through there, but grew to appreciate it as a gateway to the desert mountains I love. Congratulations on loving your home, and to all you West Texans, best folks in the whole damned world!
  9. Hey, my wife owned a house here when we got married. Then, the first time I took her out to Far West Texas (to the town of Marfa, home of the coolest summer mornings in Texas, she let me know she did not want to live in the desert. I was ok with that; one thing I enjoyed about Denton was the oak woodlands of the Cross Timbers region, especially compared to the generally treeless plains surrounding the Wichita Falls area where I grew up. However, I've always enjoyed being in places of scenic beauty, but never felt like I had to live next to a National Park to enjoy them. I'd love to l
  10. If I'm going to Big Bend National Park or some other part of the Texas Transpecos region, which I like to do every few years, I'll fly in to El Paso and get a rent car and drive back from there, rather than face the rather depressing aspect of seeing the Midland Odessa area. I mean, just because we haven't won a football game the old West Texas town since maybe 45 years ago doesn't mean that El Paso has nothing to offer. Of course, defenders of Midland and Odessa, fire away. Nothing against those places, they're just not for me. I did take an east coaster to the Big Bend area (folks from
  11. The song or the city? I can't remember when we went out there that we didn't end up like the "wild young cowboy" in that classic western song by Marty Robbins.
  12. I shook Mean Joe's hand once and said, "Thanks for everything, Joe". He didn't say anything, but was gracious. That was the biggest hand I have ever shaken, and the warmest handshake.
  13. Hey, I'm a liberal, and not particularly religious(yes, still using that UNT voice training in church choir). Still, I imagine her and Scalia somewhere, catching up on things. That friendship should inspire us all.
  14. I don't think we had a real chance at a bowl win that year without winning the CUSA championship and playing somewhere besides Albuquerque. To play at about 4000 greater elevation than here and and do well woud require being in better condition than we were. Two specific things I can think that could have helped I'll lay at the foot of our offensive line play: 1. Don't have your starting quarterback go out early due to already being beat up and getting more beat up early in the game. 2. Don't have your center bouncing shotgun snaps off the ground at the worst possible times.
  15. Uh, no. I wish him well at UTEP, or any place other than Denton, except when we play against a team he coaches.
  16. Ok, I upvoted that "comment", but there's more to than that, as SMU is not located in Dallas, although they have some minor facilities within the Dallas city limits. And the "Park Cities" are enclaves "within" Dallas, rather than "suburbs", so there is that. I can't blame SMU for identifying itself with a better known city, although some might find it confusing. However, I recognize the Dallas Logo to be close enough to the "official" City of Dallas Logo that someone at the City had to sign off on its use, and I have an opinion that such brand management might have serious downside potent
  17. I love me some BillySee58, but forgetting can sometimes be a good thing.
  18. If so, that "specific testing" should become a standard protocol and instituted for student athletes starting at high school level. I'm always suspicious of whether physical exams are thorough enough when hearing about a student athlete dying during practice. Expensive? Probably. Worth it? Think about how much the argument for the economic impact of sports is trotted out as a reason for a return to a regular fall schedule. Better yet, think of how you'd feel if it was your child's life that could be saved by greater scrutiny.
  19. I'm sorry to read of your loss. From reading the news account, he was a wonderful person and exemplary public servant.
  20. If the filibuster and the electoral college were set out by the curb and picked up with all the other garbage on Monday, I wouldn't cry.
  21. It's probably some of our best programs (music, chemistry, etc) could get hurt the most, because they attract students who want the best education for the money in those fields. I am sure this could cause some deep pain to many good programs at UNT. On the other hand, I think UNT and other universities should do as much as they can to have an innovative combination of online and classroom instruction, perhaps in a way to nuance this guidance (i.e., have some classroom instruction for a mostly online course, with perhaps a fourth of the class enrollment in classroom instruction one day a week,
  22. When I moved from Wichita Falls to Denton to attend North Texas back in 1973 I remember being shocked to see that statue on the grounds of the Denton County Courthouse, never having been aware of any "Confederate Statues" in Wichita Falls, and instead being accustomed to the World War 1 statue "Spirit of the American Doughboy" on the grounds of the Wichita Falls Memorial Auditorium: https://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WM7GQE_The_Spirit_of_the_American_Doughboy_Wichita_Falls_TX I suppose the "shocked" part was due to having been raised by a Bible believing mother who interpreted the E
  23. No, he said, "Does this shirt make me sexy".
