  1. Bennet past his prime Old ass quarterback throw dime Dime more than nickel
  2. Aune old as eff Precision is not his game Black Oak Arkansas
  3. Why is everyone in denial about what they really want? Bring back Darrell Dickey and we will be whole as a program again. You know you MFers want him.
  4. That’s a good point 80. I just don’t know if it’s worth the extra dollars. We need money more than fan hope but it can’t become hopeless and lose fans forever.
  5. If the loses start pilling up it’s just a bad deal for everyone. Recruiting suffers, the coaches don’t care as much, etc. It’s not like you can fire the whole staff. I feel for the kids in this situation. I don’t think you even get a head start in the search for the next coach. As long as he acts professionally he will be here till the end of the season.
  6. What did the NCAA do? They didn't cause this. As far as killing the G5...App State, Air Force, UCF, Old Dominion, Marshall, and Ga. Southern would like a word. It works both ways.
  7. Nope. My previously purchased blue lot parking pass with mandatory MGSF donation was honored instead of being given to an charlatan.
  8. They deserve a ton of credit. So do many, many more over the last 20 years. This didn’t happen overnight. It was boosters, previous Athletic Department leadership and staff, former Presidents, and members of the board of regents.
  9. Yes, the issues would have still come up. I haven’t been upset about the game at all. We all had a pretty good idea what the outcome would be.
  10. A quick note to the clowns reading this that can't handle any criticism: I believe Wren and Neal are both a big net positive. Ok? Now on to the rant. Wren had to send the email, ok? There was no fantastical epiphany on accountability. Wren did his job really, really bad on Saturday. This has happened before. Not only has this happened under Wren before, but this EXACT SAME BULLSHIT happened under RV. And oh yeah, under a different President as well. We are either unable or unwilling to pull our collective heads out of our collective asses. For those of you in the "just get there earlier" or "it didn't happen to me" crowd, I wish you would consider a few things. I wish you would empathize with those who had significant issues on Saturday. These are significant issues for some, not all. They are still significant issues. They really happened. These issues are serious enough to drive potential fans away forever. An answer of "just get there earlier" or "it didn't happen to me" only hurts in finding a solution to this bullshit. It's the same old shit. Our AD is one of the highest paid ADs in the country. Yes, country. Like top 30ish. I expect him to document and resolve issues like these for all future ADs. This is basic job responsibility stuff. Again, it's the same old shit. We gave a negative gameday experience to some potential fans who will never, ever come back. Not only am I pointing the finger at the AD, but I'm also pointing the finger at Neal. Hey Doc, act like you're smart and find a solution to this. You two are capable of great things but the amount of ego and selfishness is appalling. It's almost as if you two don't give a douchebag about the future as long as you look good now. It's almost as if you want to make the guy following you have a tougher job, so your legacy looks better. You two receive well deserved praise in a lot of areas but both of you get a resounding "F" in change management. So do your predecessors. Just 100% terrible. Change management is a real thing and you should really look into it. Neither of you will be around forever but you need to act in a responsible manner. You need to find solutions AND put systems in place to ensure this never happens again...whomever is the AD or University President. I know it doesn't fulfill your selfish needs right now, but it is the right thing to do. I don't give Wren or Neal a pass. This is just the same old shit. Wren and Neal, c'mon fella's we like you! Now it's time to get your shit together.
  11. The University and NIL are to remain separate entities. Doing what you suggested would be NCAA violation. Not that it matters because are there really any violations anymore? This is sports anarchy right now so eff it, divert the funds to NIL. I say this in jest.
  12. Dan McCarney says “hold my Grey Goose and I’ll show you how it’s done”.
  13. The traffic and parking was so, so bad yesterday. Who knows how many people just peeled off and didn’t bother to make it inside the stadium. Was it 100? A 1000? 3000? I sit in a suite. I always get there right as the suites open 90 minutes before kickoff but yesterday was an exception. I hit the stadium traffic at 5:45. I didn’t get to my seat until after 7:00. Is it always like this when attendance gets to around 25k? Who the heck would put up with this more than once? I’m kinda in shock of just how bad it was. Wren, you owe us an apology and a commitment to get this corrected.
  14. Since it's North Texas: 940, 682, 817, 214, 469, 972, 430, 903, and 254.
  15. One of the Von Erich’s.
  16. I was in Lubbock watching the #6 Red Raiders beat the #1 Longhorns with the Crabtree touchdown. It was early in that game and I was looking at my phone for play by play updates. I just knew the Hilltoppers were going to punch it in making it more likely we would end the season winless. It went from 45-40 to 51-40 game over on my phone with North Texas as the victors. I was so confused. It took a couple of minutes for me to figure out what happened.
  17. Level of competition matters as does the product on the field/court. I've seen some great crowds over the past few years in FB and MBB against competition that isn't a big draw. I think 30K at a football game and 9K at a basketball game is a leap forward. We've also done very poorly at times when our team and or opponent just aren't very good. I disagree about Dentonites, they show up when there is a good product or when the opponent is a household name...just like everyone else.
  18. This is totally the way to go. I do the same for bowl games as well. Pros from buying at the North Texas ticket office: 1) Our AD gets a small cut. 2) You get to sit by other North Texas fans. The Cons: 1) Probably the worst tickets available. You will be able to score much, much, much better seats from the other ticket office, including on the North Texas sideline. 2) Unpredictable delivery. They say they will be available on Tuesday, but you are still looking for them on Friday, which we will all be forced to read your posts about this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 3) You don't know until you get the ticket exactly where you will be sitting (and the seats will suck). 4) Increased level of dread and frustration about the future and direction of the athletic department and even the University as a whole.
  19. Garrett Marino, what an absolute pleasure of a human being.
  20. Dude, just stop. RV should be assessed on how it was when he started to how it was when he left because that was, you know, his job. We weren't just awful; we were ULM awful. We passed many a school during his tenure in terms of big boy business stuff like facilities, revenue, and willingness to take on debt. That's the big boy business stuff that gets you into better conferences instead of ABC State who does a lot with a little who can't understand why they got passed by because they had a better win loss record than UNT and then blame it on markets. I was right here when that bullshit report came out. Yes, we needed to improve on some things. We still do and we don't need another "report" to make it true.
  21. This is an important statistic for sure, but you are GREATLY missing the mark like all of the message board experts who couldn't for the life of them figure out why UNT was invited to the American when in reality we were a slam dunk. It didn't just happen when Wren arrived and the grand summation of all of the previous ADs efforts amounted to a pile of shit. RV deserves a TREMENDOUS amount of credit for seeing the big picture and getting us in a position to get to where we wanted to be. If anyone else could have done it, they would have. They didn't and they are stuck where they are.
  22. They didn't analyze the shit show he inherited from 1999, did they? They didn't analyze before and after, did they? I am very aware of the 3rd party report. Those third-party reports are such performative art. It's not like there was anything in the "report" we didn't already know and if there was, we certainly should have and that's on us. Talk about a waste of money. It reminds me of the American contracting the former B1G guys to give them advice on conference realignment and the American realized the report they received wasn't anything they didn't already know. Remember the bullshit Gene Stallings report on UNT? It was craaaaaaaap. It was only $20K but c'mon.
