  1. Another add-on to the 1988 team -- not only did they beat Texas Tech and pretty much Texas (if replays were done back in 1988 like they are now it would no longer have been North Texas 24 Texas 13 Referees 14) but they also beat the heck out of Rice as well. Going 3-0 against the Southwest Conference for all practical intents and purposes is not too shabby.
  2. This is why a certain side of Congress is trying to get immunity for businesses & institutions as it pertains to Coronavirus claims. Otherwise you will see MANY businesses and colleges close their doors waaaay longer than necessary in fear of exhaustive litigation expenses from ambulance chasing trial attorneys who are looking for their next big meal ticket. Nevermind that a customer or employee likely can't prove they got the virus from a particular establishment -- it'll be the "hey, you made me go into work and that's why I caught the virus -- I'll settle for $______ to make it go away". This will kill any hopes of the economy restarting -- thus, why it's important to have legal protections built in...
  3. That is crazy! Only one -- repeat ONE -- 6-6 team was left out this season. If the same # of eligible teams held true next year, that means FIVE teams with losing records would go to a bowl game. Are there no such thing as standards for the NCAA? They have the power to say no more. SMH.
  4. I'll just wait to see what the results are. We can't judge a hire on Day Zero. Yeesh. Some of you would likely be complaining if SL hired Wade Phillips as DC.
  5. Guess I'll go first since I posted the topic. haha. 1) Clearly Louisiana Tech got the best of the 8 bowls with a date against a big name brand school like Miami (FL). Makes sense as the date is right after Christmas and that is an easy trip for La Tech fans to make. Any other conference mates that ended up there would have probably drilled attendance. 2) Poor Appalachian State. Top 20 team and you're having to play a team that just got waxed by 40+ points in the CUSA Championship Game. They deserved a date against a P5 team to showcase what they can do. New Orleans is great & all but I bet they would rather be playing anywhere they could against a P5 team, even if it ended up with them getting moved around. 3) Speaking of moved around, it was interesting that CUSA ended up not being in the New Mexico Bowl, which we were contractually tied to. Instead they put in a MAC team. 4) Basically all the bowls WE wanted to go to in the past (First Responder, Armed Forces & Independence), THIS is the year they finally all got filled by CUSA teams. Just our luck. Ugh.
  6. Our conference bowl line-up for this year is as follows: Dec. 20 Bahamas Bowl 1 p.m. (ESPN) Charlotte vs. Buffalo Dec. 21 Boca Raton Bowl 2:30 p.m. (ABC) Florida Atlantic vs. SMU Dec. 21 Camellia Bowl 4:30 p.m. (ESPN) Florida International vs Arkansas State Dec. 21 New Orleans Bowl 8:00 p.m. (ESPN) UAB vs. Appalachian State Dec 23 Gasparilla Bowl 1:30 p.m. (ESPN) Marshall vs. Central Florida Dec 26 Independence Bowl 3:00 p.m. (ESPN) Louisiana Tech vs. Miami (FL) Dec 30 First Responder Bowl 11:30 a.m. (ESPN) Western Kentucky vs. Western Michigan Jan 4 Armed Forces Bowl 10:30 a.m. (ESPN) Southern Miss vs, Tulane Thoughts?
  7. So, what you're saying is the headline Sad: Jacksonville State drops football is "fake news"? Sad! 😋 Thank you for clearing up who really dropped the football program.
  8. @El Paso Eagle -- um, I 100% agree with you. I was using sarcasm to point out GH IS good and this board overreacted (shocker) about GH not being very good and we need someone else, yada, yada, yada. In fact, the guy was so "bad" he got promoted to the OC of a P5 school.
  9. Hmmm, my guess would be no. Graham Harrell was such an ineffective OC here that half of this board bitched & moaned about his playcalling for quite some time. Surely someone who was incapable of being a capable OC in CUSA wouldn't be considered for a HC in CUSA? 😋
  10. Rick -- you're doing a bit at this point, right? It's gotta be. There's no other explanation for continuing to resurrect this thread to tell us what a football genius you are. Now if you picked 4-6 at this point for North Texas, come start a thread about being Nostradamus. Thx. P.S. I'm not a genius. I had us at 9-4.
  11. That's exactly what I thought too. That's why they play the actual games. That was crazy!
  12. And sometimes you restart an old thread to comment multiple times about just how right you were in the prediction department. 😉
  13. I personally think this was well played by unBEARableCalFanatic. Gotta give credit when credit is due.
  14. That's the beauty though. It's not what people on this forum think that drives the decisions. If it was the entire staff would have been fired after the SMU game -- and all rehired after the UTSA game. I've got tired head from being at the game and just getting home so I haven't read all the threads but I can probably sum up the threads here: "we suck ... the season is over ... fire all the coaches". Repeat ×30. Until we win the next conference game -- then it will be "wow! We're going undefeated in conference!".
  15. NorthTexasWeLove ... rebuttal comment from you to the AP putting them in at #23? (So, yes, they are now actually in the top 25).
