  1. On a serious note: No, he doesn't need to be a cheerleader. This isn't the Hayden Fry era where coaches double as AD, and walk door to door to promote their athletes. We have entire an entire staff, including paid positions, that are there to market and connect to fans. GM is dynamic and IMO that's bonus. It's not needed. Not a job requisite. What I need HCs to do is 1) figure out how to win games. That's it. As far as personality requirements? Just don't burn bridges. And, honestly, a small house fire won't get you the pink slip if you're winning a ton.
  2. Bennett is beloved around Waco, among the Baylor sports circles. It's not that he's any official spokesman for our team, it's just that they like to talk to him a lot, about what he's doing lately and CFB in general.
  3. How do you come to this? I’m of the the impression that 1) more than these two schools contacted KD, and 2) Jimbo and those SEC schools are all dirty. Kiffin just doesn’t care about playing the media to try and mask it.
  4. Interesting to link the drop in recruiting with a lack of contract extension.
  5. I don't care who it is! We just need the player to be a massive level up from 2021!
  6. I no longer feel like a bowl game means we are heading in the right direction.
  7. I've hard the Sun Bowl can accommodate 50K+...? Maybe this is the difference between seats and standing room availability When they are winning and gettin 35 thousand in attendance, it is definitely loud. The bowl is tucked into a leg of the Franklin Mountains, effectively making it a speaker cone. It's possibly to feel the concrete vibrate/shake.
  8. GreenMiner, breathe! Some people will just never stop responding to trolls.
  9. What's his 40? Or his 100 dash? EDIT: Found it. 4.4 40, 10.6 100
  10. He's C/O 2024. Maybe it's so early the ratings guys haven't bothered with him yet.
  11. I don't think you look like "next in line" just because you're the DC/OC, or an assistant. What makes you think that about Bloesch and Bennett?
  12. Would be cool to have some kind of plan in place, a plan that grooms him into our next coach. The dude BLEEDS green. Has NFL skins, and from my view appears to have the rare ability to take all of that and communicate/coach it into his students. I don't know if we will ever see him as a HC in Denton, but I certainly hope we at least give him the next step as an assistant, coordinator, or associate.
  13. You don't know whipped until you go 3-8, including a 59-0 loss to Boise State, then start 0-5 the next season after losing to a LaMoe team that was 0-4. Then you're next opponent is a 5-0 MTSU team that was averaging 7+ yards PER SNAP, and had a TE that was at least 6'7". Talk about clocking out. But I was in the marching band and went. Then I witnessed a 72+ yard punt and a miracle. You don't know whipped unless you've seen us get beaten so badly week after week with a high school coach that was so over his head, you could hear the opposing defense reading our O and calling out the exact play we were going to run. Play after play. I saw it on a Thanksgiving weekend game, playing WKU in a snow storm and you could count the fans in the stands. Guys, our program's fanbase is one of the most pissed on communities in the history of this game. The media rarely gets our name right. Our administration abandoned our program decades ago that has set us back in so many ways. Coaches have given up on our roster. I'm glad we are frustrated NOW, because it means standards are higher. But don't mistake this frustration for the worst era in history. I feel like it is not even close.
  14. Am I crazy (and maybe a little cruel here) for thinking some of y'all are waaay too high on KD? Where would you rank him among our LBs the last 10 years? Maybe I am underestimating him.
  15. What if the conversation was more than just, "Good sir, I have decided to enter the portal to explore my options?" Also, I like to tell myself A&M couldn't match our NIL offer, and laugh while wearing my "Screw the Ags" Cheerio-stained t-shirt.
  16. I feel like we need to clarify whether we are talking about the worst decision in our history, vs. the most apathetic the fanbase has ever been. I feel like you're talking about the former, and I thought the OP was about the latter. Fun fact about that '81-82 season: you can't find any other moment in North Texas history where we had a 1 year FB coach, 1 year AD (also Bob Tyler) and 1 year University President (Howard Wellington Smith Jr.), all lined up together at the same time. All three of those positions were filled with new names in 1982.
  17. ha! Okay, guys thanks for painting the picture. My most vivid memory from that game was seeing the ladies leave at HT, ahead of us guys, to scout places to eat. Then they returned during one of the first OTs having already eaten, wondering where we had been.
  18. Setting up an auto draft for $10 is not nearly the commitment as asking people to make the trek to Denton for football. People have all kinds of junk subscriptions being auto-deducted from their account. I'm not saying 300K people donating is attainable, I have no idea, but I think you need to reverse how you're thinking these two things ($10 auto-deduction/attending a football game) compare.
  19. I was there and don't remember that at all. Did that involve more than 10 people?
  20. Doesn't there have to be some kind of business arrangement? I thought it was about name and likeness, so there has to be, like, shirts for sale with his face on it, or arrangements for him to appear at your event. If NIL simply allows pools of people/fans outside an AD to legally throw money at players with none of the above required, then have at it. I must have misunderstood.
  21. The money/media environment is incredibly bloated but, by and large, the blue bloods are who they are because they have always been the ones spending the most money.
