    Only funny because we won. Also, lol at the crickets after his joke at 4:10 mark.

    G5 Playoff

    UCF beating Auburn in the Sugar Bowl last year was a big deal. TCU beating Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl was a big deal (they wound up riding this to a P5 conference invite!!). Boise St. beating Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl was a big deal.

    Attendance Record?

    You know why he had to do that? Because our game was on TV, and we don't want to be playing our fight song & hearing students yell "m/f'n" for anyone who could see. So, he was explaining to the band that they would transition to a different song during the drumbreak so the students couldn't do it. It's sad he has to do that kind of thing. But I'm afraid it's a lost cause now. It's simply not going away.

    Yeah! Let's give 'em the ol' razzmatazz! Our applesauce wingback will make sure the opposition is on a trip for biscuits!

    G5 Playoff

    A "G5 Playoff" would be voluntarily creating a FBS-1AA. Not necessary. The only way G5's can continue to show we belong is by UCF-like runs from more G5 teams. Create our own "playoff", and those opportunities are gone.

    Earl Campbell semi finalists named

    I would say this thing was sewn up for D'Eriq King, but depending on how bad his injury is, it could open it up.

    Dang! That's DT (#7) and Byrd (#24 right by him) over on the left. That picture is over 5 years old!!

    DRC: Five thoughts on UNT's win over Florida Atlantic

    One of those, Khairi got burned peeking in the backfield on the play action to Motor (hard to fault him there) while his man ran right by him. I didn't see the other long TE play.

    ED Oliver Vs. Major Applewhite

    Major basically accusing him of packing it in & not playing for his teammates. I admire Major for that, but maybe not at that particular time.

    YOU PUT THE POINTS ON THE BOARD!

    They put Darden in the flat pre-snap, and threw over to him once last night. He was promptly gobbled up for a loss/no gain. I think there's a lot of film on the offense now & teams are more prepared for what we're doing. There just comes a time when you have to line up and go get those tough yards... Something we could do with Easley, but it's not Torrey's strong suit.
  11. MeanGreenTexan

    Torrey

    Make no mistake, Johnson is a feature back. He can do it all. He just hasn't had an opportunity to play like one at Manvel until Playoffs. Torrey will move back to his 3rd down role he excelled in while we had Easley.

    I scanned all 4 of my tickets (kids were in bed though). Just doing my part!

    My kid meets Mason F

    After that 40yd pass he dropped to Bussey on a dime in the 1st quarter, I just stood there and thought, "I'm watching greatness right in front of me." Not necessarily because he can drop a pass in like that, but because he can do that while also being the kind of dude that is humble/approachable like this. I had the same thoughts sometimes watching Dunbar rip off huge runs. The sky's the limit for Mr. Fine.

    UTSA

    They were playing for legitimacy in 2013. Both teams were flat-out awful in 2015. Yeah, they'll come out swinging because it's their "bowl game". But unlike ODU and FAU, we'll put up a bunch of quick points on them & they'll start playing VERY chippy and undisciplined. Our guys know this will be coming. It's gonna be ugly. Yawn on "rivalry"

    ***FAU vs UNT Official Game Thread***

    He has virtually played his way into a "feature back" role. Smith is rarely out there anymore.

    A modest proposal

    The book is out on him now. I mean, I guess he can get in some garbage-time runs VS UTSA, but putting him in during a bowl game will not fool anyone. The box would get loaded so fast...
  17. MeanGreenTexan

    UTSA

    UTSA has nothing to play for. They're not going to a bowl game. Their team has already checked out. We'll have extra time to prepare. When our offense comes out fast and punches them in the mouth early like we've been doing lately, they're not going to bow-up. They're going to fold. This game gets ugly for the birds that don't fly.

    Basketball Scandal?

    Back when this actually happened, it was right in the middle of Baylor's troubles & at the end of Benford's tenure. Pres. Smatresk showed everyone he learned a thing or two during that time & got out in front of this thing with openness & honesty. NT administration was very forthright, knowing it could give them a black eye, but choosing to do the right thing anyway. That's why this is not a big story now.

    DRC: Five thoughts on UNT's win over Florida Atlantic

    Point #4 was HUGE. I can tell the defense game-planned for Motor. Holding that dude to less than 100 yards is an incredible feat. He was averaging 168yds in the 3 games prior to ours.

    Bryce English

    He's a Nose/1Tech. His job is to eat up 2 blockers so that Ejiya/Garner can rack up all their stats. The fact that Ejiya/Garner have a ton of tackles, sacks, pressures means he & Tauaalo are killing it. And yes, last night he was in sweats with a boot on. So sad.

    Possible Bowl Games Mega Thread

    The same one we'd go to at 7-5. Whichever one wants us most after UAB & MT/FIU choose theirs. Plenty of bowls will be interested in us because of our offense. It's either going to be New Mexico or First Responder, unless the team wants to go to Hawaii to play an air-raid battle with the Rainbow Warriors.
  22. MeanGreenTexan

    ***FAU vs UNT Official Game Thread***

    ...but that's all he did last night. It's all he ever does. If it's not a designed run, he'll make 1 very quick read & tuck/run if it's not there. And obviously FAU did not know this about him, even though every Mean Green fan knew exactly what was coming. It's like they thought, "Oh, next man up... same old Air Raid offense though. We won't make any adjustments to our defense." That said, I'm glad he got to do that in his last game at Apogee!

    YOU PUT THE POINTS ON THE BOARD!

    What on Earth were they going to call there? Your offense is based on spreading out the defense, sideline to sideline & vertically. They have to be able to stretch out the field, or get the ball out quickly in tiny spaces. When the ball is on the 4 yd line, you don't have the ability to spread the defense out. The field is too small. You have to be able to line up heavy and mash the ball in, which we have proven over & over we simply cannot do reliably.

    A modest proposal

    I do think the introduction of, essentially, a run-only QB, was a shock to the owls. One that definitely seemed to swing the momentum with their inability to stop him. With Mason for the duration, I don’t know if we lose the game, but I don’t know if we win either. Hope that answers your question!
