  1. They won't be the last state to do this. Would not surprise me a bit if Texas does the same. It would make a lot of two sport athletes choose. With the overlap, those that play a second sport would probably not be able to do both. But, it could give a marginal player more playing time in his chosen sport.
  2. So, what exactly is the point of this article? If you want good people, it is going to cost. I have no problem with what we are paying any of them. I just wish it could be more.
  3. In the future, all series against P5 are one for one AND the first game is in Denton. Then if you want to cancel, we will talk about a buyout.
  4. It looks like she did not play at all the last 10 games for Tech. The last game she played was for 2 minutes in a 30 point win. Seems to me like she might me there for depth and a solid practice player, both of which are important to winning teams. Seems like a good, last minute pick up. Maybe she can help, maybe just bench depth (which we had little of this year). And she is only here for a year if she cannot help. I think the girls are about to be REALLY good.
  5. He seems to take a lot of pride in his blocking. That tells me plenty about his attitude and work ethic. He reminds me a little of Guyton with vertical speed. Sometimes a kid just runs so effortless. Glad we got him.
  6. The only thing I would add to GrayEagle's post is that there needs to be a standard for who counts as attendance. You should not get to count the ushers and concession workers.
  7. Amen. Do it. I am not a fan of the pod play that we have been doing.
  8. She wasn't injured. She got crossways with Coach Mitchell and never came back. I am glad she graduated, but she was not hurt.
  9. It is funny what these kids (or whoever is putting together their highlight video) think is a highlight. Putting pressure on a QB when the other team blows an assignment is not really a highlight. I was much more impressed with the second play and another late in the film when a lineman tries to kick him out and he drops him like a bad habit. I like when people try to cut him and he has good feet and great hands. I like how he moves lateral keeping his shoulders square. I like how he runs in man coverage. But pushing down a QB when you weren't blocked..... well, okay I guess.
  10. Wise is about to play a lot. He's going to be great too.
  11. It seems like early in the year we had him at the point and Hamlet at the 2. We got good when Coach switched them. It is obvious to anyone watching the games that he can only play the point in spurts. If Hamlet needed a break or got into foul trouble, he could run the point for a bit. But, to have him do it for a season is not in the cards. Why can't winning be enough? You are an important part of a conference champion and that isn't enough for you? Oh well, we will win with or without him.
  12. This is an area where better play could improve our defense quickly. Improvement may come from a different scheme. We consistently played 3 down linemen (there was actually one game last year where we played 2). We seldom got any pass rush from our interior, even when we slid the front. To get pressure, we had to bring people from the second level and play man in the secondary. We got exposed in man coverage when we tried to stunt. Short, fat, and slow is no way to go through life or a season. We have to be more athletic with our front.
  13. My guess is the Bean starts and the QB run game is actually part of the offense. We quit running Mason during his Sophomore year. With the depth we have, losing Bean to an injury isn't as big of a deal as losing Mason would have been. I look for 3 of them to play early since we don't have Spring ball. I also look for at least 2 of them to transfer at the end of the season. Too many are the same age.
  14. True or False: Every conference has to have a mechanism to award the automatic bid in case the conference tournament cannot be played. True or False: Conference USA awards the automatic bid to the regular season champion in case the conference tournament cannot be played. True of False: Conference USA cancelled the tournament and according to conference and NCAA rules, North Texas is awarded the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. True or False: The Conference USA tournament was cancelled and the bid awarded prior to the NCAA cancelling their tournament. Hint: all the answers are true. North Texas was awarded the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Pay the man the $25000 and put up two banners.
  15. He should get the NCAA bonus of $25,000. The CUSA tournament was cancelled granting us the automatic bid. Put up the banner and pay the man.
