So many to choose from. I'd start with the entire 2001 season. I attended every game that year with a good friend of mine. Started 0-5 with road trips to Norman, Tampa & Monroe My first trip to Norman and first time to see Big XII football in person. My friend had a connection that helped us get a beach front condo in Tampa the week of the USF game. Turns out the week before we stayed there President Bush had stayed in the same condo. Resort staff was still moving furnishings back in that secret service had removed. Took the bus trip from hell to Monroe with many on this board. Watched Necessary Roughness on the way out, got super pumped then lost to a team I was sure we would beat. Bus ride home was a beating. To this day I refuse to watch Necessary Roughness on game days. At this point in the season I see no reason for hope. Next week we shock the Conference favorites, MTSU, in Denton. Late in the game with NT leading 21-0, GreenJoe, who has seats close to mine, yells "When does the North Texas game start!" I am shocked, but still don't expect much from the rest of the season. Following a victory over Arkansas State, we travel to Las Cruces. We had a good crowd. Security kept moving our fans out of the good seats (even though they were empty) and into the corner of the end zone. IIRC, Emmitt actually walks to the ticket booth and buys tickets in the section we were removed from and security still makes him move. NMSU students start chanting "F$%k North Texas" from the student section. We win in a miracle comeback. The legend of "The Miracle in the Desert" is born. NMSU turns off the stadium lights as soon as the game clock ticks to 0.00. We tailgate in the parking lot for hours after the game. I start to think the impossible may happen. We beat the Cajuns then travel to Idaho. Go to a sports bar in Moscow the night before the game. On the menu I find a "Mean Green Burger". No joke. Not many NT fans in the stands. Brad Olson is there in their version of a suite and promises to throw some pretzels to me in the cheap seats. He doesn't. My friend and I are interviewed by the NT Daily and get on the front page the following week. We win big and secure a berth in the New Orleans Bowl. We travel to Troy to play the Trojans and secure a .500 record. We lose. Damn. MTSU fans begin an epic meltdown over being snubbed for a 5-7 North Texas. New Orleans baby! So much fun on Bourbon Street. Game is a disappointment, but I had a fantastic time.
