  1. At first, Tulsa won. Roberts committed to the Golden Hurricane on May 17. North Texas, the first school he visited, had always been a possibility, but it wasn’t a frontrunner. Then the Mean Green offered him a scholarship on June 1. When Roberts returned to Denton, Texas, for another visit, he had a new perspective. As he immersed himself in the UNT environment, he faced a dilemma. Although he liked Tulsa, multiple factors drew him toward the Mean Green. He could envision himself in the lineup as a tight end. He learned about the indoor practice building that is under construction, p
  2. Johnson reportedly waffling: After pledging to TU last month, Alto (Texas) athlete Keenen Johnson has also been considering North Texas following the hiring of Seth Littrell, according to the Denton (Texas) Record-Chronicle. “I am finalizing my decision,” Johnson told the newspaper. “I want to talk it over with my family and take my official visits. I am considering Tulsa and North Texas. I can’t say right now who I am leaning towards more.” read more: http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/tusportsextra/tu-recruiting-notebook-latest-offers-include-sapulpa-rb-dae-williams/art
  3. Posted: Saturday December 6, 2014 12:00 am FYI Montgomery makes $800K a year. Will be interesting to see where our new staff salary falls in line. Cross one name off the list of candidates for the University of Tulsa football opening. On Friday, TCU co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham declined a request to interview for the vacancy, a source close to the situation told the Tulsa World. Meacham, a finalist for the Broyles Award, played at Oklahoma State and was an assistant there under Mike Gundy for eight seasons before spending a year at Houston and moving to TCU this year. Following t
  4. After decommitting from Baylor on Tuesday, quarterback Chad President waited until Christmas night to announce his decision to attend the University of Tulsa. I was planning on committing today, just as a little present for coach (Philip) Montgomery, President said by phone Thursday night. I told him I had a present for him and that Ill be up there in the spring. President is a Rivals.com four-star prospect from Temple, Texas, and is ranked the No. 9 dual-threat quarterback nationally. He had been verbally committed to Baylor since April and would have stuck with the Bears if Montgomery ha
  5. Here the complete look at the AAC East-West divisions: East Division UCF Cincinnati UConn East Carolina USF Temple West Division Houston Memphis Navy SMU Tulane Tulsa In addition to the divisional alignment, the AAC also announced the tiebreak procedure for the 2014 season — a conference championship game will be held in 2015 as the league moves to 12 teams.

  6. The University of Tulsa, the American Athletic Conference and schools and leagues just like them would like two assurances coming out of last week's big NCAA announcement about Power Five autonomy: One is maintaining the football scholarship limit of 85. The other is continuing the current form of shared governance. If granting the ACC, the Big 12, the Big Ten, the Pac-12 and the SEC legislative autonomy due to their expansive revenues means those leagues can add football scholarships, that would create a competitive imbalance with which schools in the AAC, Conference USA, the MAC, the Mou

  9. Tonight (11/14/13) Marshall Thundering Herd (6-3) @ Tulsa Golden Hurricane (2-7) 7:30 PM EST/6:30 PM CST Fox Sports 1 From MUTeke on the CUSA Board:
  10. "...During homecoming weekend I took the time to get a pulse of the program through several boosters, former players, and current coaches. I will start with the boosters. One booster told me this: Studies on coaching have been conducted on coaches who take over both good and bad teams. For coaches taking over bad teams, if they were able to turn the program around before or at year three, the coaching hire was considered a success. For the coaches taking over successful programs, if the coach continued having success through year 3, the coaching hire was considered a success. I directly asked
  11. Opening statement HEAD COACH Bill Blankenship: All right. I guess first of all, I wish to apologize to our homecoming fans and the folks that have been a part of this, because we surely did not represent Tulsa football very well today. Q. This is obviously a big recruiting time. How do recruits look at this? Do they shake their head and walk out early or do they say they can play for this team? Is this a good thing? HEAD COACH Bill Blankenship: Yeah, I don't know. I don't know. That's certainly a challenge for us right now. Hopefully they can see us in the worst of times and see if they
  12. Ah...Football. It doesn't get any better than this time of the year, does it? No disrespect to baseball fans, but I usually refer to the period between the last day of the NBA Finals and the first day of the football season as "the dry season." Don't get me wrong -- I love going to a baseball game every now and then, but watching it on television is brutal. Football, on the other hand, was made for TV. College football, in particular, is a joy to behold on Saturday afternoons. Watching these kids play their hearts out with no thought of contracts, showboating, or other selfish ambitions (o
  13. With all of the rumors and high hopes surrounding the return of baseball to North Texas, it could be viewed as a little premature to start planning out the next athletic facility improvement. Obviously, most North Texas fans are thrilled about the prospect of adding a new baseball facility in the Eagle Village Athletic complex. And the fact that the athletic department - with big help from our sainted donor Ernie Kuehne - was able to build the new basketball practice facility in such short order - was a big feather in their cap. I was not one who thought an indoor football and athletic p
  14. TULSA FINDS ITSELF in an odd situation this fall as a member of Conference USA but with an eye on the American Athletic Conference. The Golden Hurricane will be the favorite in C-USA football this fall and one of the favorites in C-USA men's basketball this winter. However, what's happening in the American Athletic Conference will be important to Tulsa's long-term success. TU will enter its final school year in C-USA as the king of the league. The Golden Hurricane has won 49 conference championships in C-USA, more than twice as many as the second-place school during the same period.
  15. Returning starters: 10 (7 offense, 3 defense). Five players to watch: QB Cody Green, RB Trey Watts, OT Garrett Stafford, LB Shawn Jackson, S Marco Nelson. Spring questions: 1. How much of a concern are the losses? Tulsa does return only 10 starters, one of the lowest totals of any team in college football. Perhaps on a different team, in a different conference, this would be an overriding concern. It doesn't seem as troublesome to Tulsa and coach Bill Blankenship, who have experienced similar roster turnover in the recent past yet remained among Conference USA's elite upper slice.
  16. If you were a C-USA president who would you add? If Banowsky sticks to his guns -- it's about TV markets and geographical rivalries.
  17. Not blessed with either great geography or a top television market, Tulsa has been on the outside looking in during much of the ongoing realignment saga. But as our own Bill Haisten reported in Wednesday's paper (read the full story here) that could change soon. It appears the Hurricane may be on the verge of accepting a Big East invitation. An invitation was thought to be coming TU's way if San Diego State opted out of its deal with the Big East and returned to the Mountain West Conference. According to reports by CBSSports.com and ESPN, the Aztecs made the decision to stay in the Mou
  18. The Big East will make a serious push to keeping San Diego State as a member in football and it will also focus on adding Tulsa as member in all sports according to sources familiar with the overall planning the conference is making to restructure its future. Big East commissioner Mike Aresco will meet with Big East Presidents and Athletic Directors at an airport hotel in Dallas on Friday to discuss the overall strategy. The most pressing issue will be the configuration of the football league for next season. The original plan had been a 12-team two division conference with the addition of
  19. While San Diego State still gets the first chance to remain in the Mountain West by Jan. 31, but that does not mean that Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson is burning through his long distance minutes contacting other schools to join the league. Earlier on Monday, it was being reporter that the SMU Mustangs are not interested in joining the Mountain West, and if that is the case than adding the Houston Cougars seems like a far fetched option. It would make sense for both Houston and come as packaged dell, well that is unless Tulsa, or even Texas-San Antonio, join the league. UTSA wa
  20. Tulsa head coach Bill Blankenship sees a lot of similarities when it comes to the Golden Hurricane and the Mean Green when it comes to their football programs. Tulsa upgraded its facilities and saw the investment pay dividends quickly. Blankenship foresees a similar payoff in the future for UNT, which opened Apogee Stadium last season.

  21. 1. Conference USA coaches and athletic directors met in Destin, Fla., Monday and, according to multiple sources, there is a strong movement to move the 2013 conference tournament from Memphis to Tulsa. Memphis is leaving for the Big East after next season and while it would make more economic sense to keep the event where it is, there isn't a lot of goodwill toward the Tigers to give them an added advantage in their final season in the conference. A decision on the tournament will be made next month. Read More: http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/59071/3-point-shot-c

  23. Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby was introduced as the Big 12's new commissioner on Friday and many believe it signals a new era of stability for the reconstructed conference. At the same time the Big 12 was putting its hope for a new quieter period in Bowlsby, C-USA was announcing five new members in a continuing makeover of its membership. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are hoping a frantic two-year scramble, that included at least two near-moves to the Pac-12, may finally be in the past. On the other hand, Tulsa is hoping this bold move by Conference USA will bring about a simil
