  1. Dykes' roll of the dice was a one-trick pony. Everybody's onto the transfer for a year game now, and that market is already far more competitive for next year's transfers. I remember Todd Dodge. Let's not make that mistake ever again.
  2. They did “Main Title” from Star Trek (2009) after Zarathustra.
  3. It’s as bad as when Saddam somehow convinced Satan that he had changed and was no longer a sandy little butthole. I mean, Rice & UTSA... Absolute truth. I’ve lost count how many times Mason has had to recover from a bad snap this year. Atrocious. Anyone who was in the stadium for that first half was the greatest loser. They played Giacchino. They can do no wrong.
  4. Combining the bands and the dancers, UH bringing their full band this time, stadium nearly selling out, and making sure a few lege members see it... ...UNT and UH are getting much better at playing the game in Austin. Terrible night on the field, but great night for both politically.
  5. I don’t think it was playcalling. The 2 point try’s I’m fine with. Especially the first one, card definitely says go there. When your players can’t tackle, there’s not much else you can do.
  6. Nobody watches the PAC12, and nobody cares about a 1-1 CUSA team. So yeah, I can understand lumping us with UT@ and Texas State. As the article said, we all play each other to some extent, so it will shake out starting on Saturday.
  7. There was a discussion about 10 years-ish ago as to whether UNT would pursue growth at all costs to get an impressive size, or whether we would up admissions standards to get better future donors, and shunt the students to UTA, UNTD and UNTF. I was firmly on the "standards" end, because the quality of student you attract is directly related to their buy-in to the university as a whole. Note this only holds for admission, and not performance thereafter - pretty much every development pro will tell you that your best donors tend to be B-C students. I also supported it because I like what the Texas system does to bolster their @ schools, and would like to replicate it with Dallas and Frisco (and eventually MSU and... that other university in Denton, once the blue hairs defending both leave the Lege). Home campus needs to cap at 40k to allow the other campuses a chance.
  8. SMU faced a good defense for half a game, and a good offense for half a game. What they haven't seen is a great offense for a full game. There's no reason to let up in this one as opposed to our game with ACU. On the contrary, SMU had to pull out all the stops to keep I-n-d-i-a-n-s from meaning victory. Sorry. Red Wolves. And somehow, gave up 300 yards against that offense. If they give that much up against ASU... dear gods... So I've got UNT winning against the O/U in this game. UNT - 77 SMU - 63
  9. I usually take the train to SMU games, and since I'm usually the only one there, I can confidently say my entire section of Ford does, too. Parking is much more of a headache at SMU, so it's usually worth the transfer.
  10. There was a noticeable improvement, I'd note especially the song selection while in the stands, which was great. Remaining kind criticisms: 1) why no Texas, Our Texas; 2) I don't like the handholding with what to do next... i.e. "Now we will do the song thing. Now we will do the chant thing. Now we will do the stand-y thing." Seems too forced. 3) UNT needs more unique pieces, like Fanfare. A music school shouldn't be using the same band cheers as everyone else. Those are very, very small criticisms, though. Well done to all.
  11. I imagine Reeder's made some changes and ain't going to show them this weekend. UNT - 24 ACU - 10 Attendance: 26138 (68973 for any SMU fans already here)
  12. The ice will still be frozen on Saturday despite it already being delivered?
  13. Please gods do not tempt the ghost of the first year eagle scream at Fouts. She is a mighty annoying beast.
  14. Well then, If it's "class" we're worried about, we should follow the example of my graduate institution, which, aside from being the most esteemed and upper-crust group of a-holes in existence, in many ways literally set the expectations for fight songs. Permit me to quote: ... well, I can't. The third verse of the 10000 Men is so lurid that even though it's in pig Latin, it's still obvious. And while our football team is now better than that, as an institution, we still have a long way to go. Behold! A reasonable solution! Perish the thought! It's not classless, and it's the expected norm for sports. The last two words of the title of the fight song is "of Harvard." And while I dislike some of their products, and no one has thought less of their graduates because the entire stadium, led by the band, sings about multiple sexual liaisons in public. ...and in addition to our betters offering the same example, a quick reminder - that vulgar, unacceptable verse was written by young, irresponsible whippersnappers in... 1949. College football is part of and inseparable from our culture, which was created by our forebears. Each generation should build on it, which is how traditions form. We need a tradition of people caring, and we need a tradition of a good entrance to the stadium. Part of building both is taking both the baby and the bathwater.
  15. I know when I'm watching students getting their brains scrambled for my amusement that the presence of naughty words negatively affects the experience.
