  1. At some point, maybe 5-6 more years from now, folks will finally stop blaming Tony Benford for the failures of this coach. I still can't comprehend how awful that 2018 class was. How can you have 5-6 scholarships available in a year and get zero (0) production out of any of them? Redshirting guys is something rarely done in college basketball. That was the first sign of how bad the class was. This is not a 20 win program; with so many inflated wins over inferior competition. Thank God Benford left behind Ryan Woolridge and Zac Simmons. Additionally, that most teams who were left out of the NCAA's and NIT passed on that CBI joke tournament.
  2. And other than his jumping ability, he's nothing to get excited about
  3. 28 pts 18 Rbs; should make some money overseas. Plays PV @ 5:00 pm on ESPNU
  4. How about recruiting the best guys you can get (priority to bigs) and stop trying to peg them into a system (small ball) that has not worked in this conference and later on in the year; when shots aren't falling. Let's see if the coach can coach and recruit. The 2018 class was a complete bust. Good luck with trying to get a coach to run off his own guys 1 year after they signed. (although needed)
  5. Congratulations to former UNT guard Jerome Rogers whose son, Jerome Jr., (Soph) won a State Championship today with Dallas Madison and captured Tournament MVP honors. Daughter, Endyia, won the TAPPS State Championship as well at Bishop Lynch and was selected 2019 Player of the year in Texas girls basketball. Headed to USC in the fall. Jerome Sr also won a State Championship at Dallas Madison his senior year.
  6. Huh? Draper and Wooldridge are LITERALLY the only Benford recruits on the team. Mean Green Add Two Recruits For 2017- 18 - North Texas men’s basketball head coach Tony Benford announced the signing of Zach Simmons (Cedar Hill, TX) and Amaad Wainright (Kansas City, MO) to National Letters of Intent. Simmons, 6-foot-9 forward, continues the trend of Texas native recruits to sign with coach Benford. According to TexasHoops.com, Simmons is ranked No. 91 in the state of Texas. Wainright, a 6-foot-4 guard, plays at Trinity Valley in Athens, TX and his brother is a senior guard at Baylor Ishmail Wainright.
  7. Bingo!!! We finally have a winner! This team had most of its major contributors returning from last year with 5-6 more scholarships to add to the mix. This was clearly the worst signing class in the history of the program. (based on the # available).

  9. Jackson was one of the top players in Texas and had a New Mexico offer. Wallace had a UTA offer
  10. I think if Jason Bean could find 20+ pounds, he would be All CUSA quality. I know it's not appropriate to criticize anything about Mason Fine and probably rightfully so but Bean is the type of QB who is needed in the absence of a good line. He actually grew on me during the HS playoffs. He equally has a great deep ball and would be a threat to go the distance when the line protection breaks down. Hopefully he will hang around knowing that he will sit again next year.
  11. ??? - Zach Simmons, Ryan Woolridge & DJ Draper
  12. Maybe it's time to bring in Brewer. Oh wait...
