    WBB vs. UAB

    With both of the last two games on the road, I have not been able to see the girls. My take on both games is that we may not have the depth to finish games against the top teams in the conference. We are MUCH better than we have been. We are probably another year of experience away from sitting at the top ourselves.
  2. Guyton was good but not great this year. I don't think he was ever the same after the targeting vs Army last year. What he did before that play will be hard to replace. What he did after that play...well, not so much. We will be fine.
  3. We will fine and so will he. And he is already the modern day Sears Woods to me. I was there.... and it was incredible. I'm more worried about replacing him as a punt catcher than as an inside receiver.

    Future Schedule. Baylor & Tulane

    So that only leaves money games at Texas A&M in 2020, Missouri in 2021, and Wisconsin in 2025. I'm okay with ending all those series. Future home and home with Houston, Cal, Baylor, Tulane, Wyoming, Army, and Texas Tech. I'm glad we are telling people to come to Denton or we are not interested.

    Lots of people, but not Lawson. Just go back and watch him in the CBI Tournament. We were and are better without him. He is a talented player, but often that is not all there is to the equation.

    Rice (1/19/19)

    Watching the way their players acted during the game, particularly #32, I do not feel sorry for them. Karma Owls, just karma.

    QB Cade Pearson intends to transfer

    This is not unexpected. When 4 play in front of you and 3 of them are back, it doesn't look good for future playing time. I wish him well.
  8. Leaving for another job or just not coming back? We all know there is a difference.

    Super Pit thoughts

    How is the opponent even relevant? The FACT is that athletics does not control usage at the Pit.

    GrandGreen, I have a suggestion. Next time you see Wren, ask him who schedules use of the Pit and who has priority if there is a conflict.

    Super Pit thoughts

    This is absolutely true. We built it with academic funds and not athletic. That is why our girls basketball team had to play a home game at TWU just a couple of years ago. The academic side needed the Pit and took it. Another example is how miserable the Mean Green Club room under the pit looked for years. The academic side would not allow the athletic side to upgrade the room. Years ago, the Longhorns and Aggies built their facilities with academic money. The legislature then changed the law so nobody else could too. Every other school in Texas has been scrambling to catch up ever since. We did what we had to do at the time to get it built. But, the academic side of the university has generally been uncooperative when it comes to upgrading the Pit. The Pit is an arena that can host a basketball game when not in use otherwise.

    You can wish, but nothing will happen. The Pit is owned by the academic side of the university. Athletics has a hard time even putting on a coat of paint in there. We need a new arena badly.

    Southern Mississippi (1/5/19)

    The NCAA tournament is not about the best teams and it certainly isn't about fairness or giving the little guy a chance. As long as they have a "play in" game, the evidence is in plain sight. The NCAA would rather invite a 14 win team from the SEC than a 20 win team from C-USA. It also isn't in the best interest of the tournament to have a #15 seed from C-USA knocking off a big name. The NCAA tournament is about the money. C-USA will not get a second bid regardless of the record or the opponents. Someone will get to enjoy the NIT and maybe someone the CBI. Until we, as a conference, start selling out our stadiums and arenas, it will stay that way.

    Women outscore men ?

    Well, way to go ladies! The girls have played very well at times. The difference right now is that the men have won most of the game where they didn't play well. The girls have just missed on those games. For the girls, #11 Shephard is going to be greatness for us. It doesn't take a keen observer to see the talent in this freshman. She will only get better and last night in the 4th quarter she really stepped up. Get out to see them if you can. All our athletes appreciate the support.
  15. The men stopped a 7 game win streak by La Tech, moved to 14-1, broke a 4 game losing streak to them, and established ourselves as a team to contend in the conference. The girls beat La Tech for the second time ever, have now beaten them twice in a row, and beat them in Ruston for the first time in school history. So, which win was bigger?
