  1. Definitely. When I think of SMU working against UNT, I have this image in my head that they are working/paying to keep us down and out...beyond a measly yes/no vote. everything you’ve mentioned has been agreeable, but in the context of them simply wanting to improve their own position. Not necessarily to keep us down. does keeping us down help their position? No more or less than keeping down anyone else that wants what they want. the previous Mean Green generation has painted this picture of SMU administration going to every effort to smite and hurt the Mean Green specifically, using their money and political weight. I don’t see it. Not during my fandom. Does anyone have any thoughts on the 10 year football series with them? If they wanted to have nothing to do with us, why did they sign on for that?
  2. SMU has some weight to throw around, but they aren’t acting against us. Or for us. I don’t think they care about us. If anything, they just want to get their shit together and beat us on the field.
  3. ...or you wanted to join/follow the path of TCU/Memphis/Houston...
  4. The only thing that gives me defensive optimism is that Breeder sounds like he is better at converting 3rd downs than GH.
  5. I think the TV market argument is losing strength. Because of the shift to streaming services, the decline of cable, and the stronghold the P5s have on everything. How is the Texas market boosting the F_Us? I don't see them ever sustaining success. So why would I be interested in stretching ourselves westward, and becoming someone else's F_U? This is endless and pointless. The CUSA ceiling right now is so much lower than the MWC, so IMO we're talking about sitting where we are at, contending for titles in a much smaller house...versus moving to the MWC and associating with bigger homes but not win any titles 9 out of 10 years. Not claim any sustained success. Plus we'd lose our regional foes. Plus away games would have horrible start times. The G5 landscape just sucks in general. Thanks P5s. Thanks Judy MacLeod
  6. I look at the F_Us as counterpoint: they want to be in a conference with Texas markets and they have it. How is it benefiting them? I don't see them ever sustaining success. I also think - aside from a failing commish - that CUSA being so spread out is one of the main reasons the conference struggles so much. I also worry that switching to the MWC would equate to spending 9 out of 10 years on the outside of championship games/tier 1 bowls looking in. On top of that, we'd lose our regional foes, and the away games would mean terrible start times for those in Central Time. In a way, I can see MWC foes looking at us as we currently view the F_Us.
  7. Any number$ that Say the positives outweighs the negatives. Any numbers that say the excuses to not join are weak.
  8. Scrolling through the 2020 recruit tweets, I heard of The Opening. It seems big enough that it might deserve it's own thread.
  9. Surprised to hear this from you
  10. Is CBSSN offering a streaming option? I know they normally do NOT, but CBS treats the NCAA postseason stuff much differently.
  11. We don’t have a true big. Question: is this because 1) Mac is not prioritizing it, or 2) he can’t find one? Maybe a little of both?
  12. Draper has the best 3 point percentage, but not by a lot. Gibson is a close 2nd in %, but throws them up a lot more. If you value contribution, it’s not like he’s scoring a ton off the bench. he’s averaged 4 ppg this year. i wonder if a lot of the positivity about Draper is carry over from what he did at the end of last year. i like his hustle and intangibles, tho.
  13. I don't want to frighten anyone, but it appears his hair can germinate and spread
  14. I"m super reluctant to leave that strategy, but I get what you're saying. It's a problem with no easy solution. Maybe the path becomes a little clearer with a few 10-win, championship seasons under our belt.
  15. If the Peach Basket were to ever return (which I consider unlikely rn), I would want you involved. Either holding it down or even just a guest.
  16. I have some critique for how we are playing, but have to concede we just seem outmatched in every facet. Trying wat I want probably wouldn’t amount to much. I know we’re small but good gosh WKU looks long/tall.
  17. TV broadcast provided by Stadium
  18. FWIW: OBPM -8.1 DBPM -0.5 BPM -8.6 EDIT: Here’s the roster table so you can see how everyone else compares
