  1. Hey the win over Idaho was fantastic, and really started things out for us on a real positive note. However, that win combined with the loss against Ohio is probably the root cause of some of the emotion being displayed here on the board the past couple of days. Let's face it folks, Idaho is not very good. I think some of us secretly hoped that they would be good and they would win some ball games which they still might do. But right now they're a pretty bad team. So we had a week of beating our chest and feeling good about ourselves after whipping up on the little guy. A lot of beer was drunk and a lot of backs were slapped after that win. We then face a guy that is our size, not any bigger or better but our equal and he gets the better of us. Not because he was necessarily better than us mind you, but due to our own mistakes. I think that is what had many of us scratching our heads and in some cases showing some extreme emotion after the loss. I can see how some new posters would come in here after witnessing the post-Idaho euphoria and wonder man are these guys pms'ing or what? A closer win against Idaho may have allowed us to accept the Ohio loss more easily. Thankfully that didn't happen. I still would take an Idaho type team opener for eternity as a North Texas fan because for at least one week we can dream about where we aspire the program to be. Since it hadn't happened in a LONG time (1998?) I just don't think our fanbase was ready to deal with the after effects of a disappointing week 2 loss. Next time we'll be ready.

In the Idaho Vandals’ season debut last Saturday, first-year coach Paul Petrino praised the frequency of his team’s hard-hitting The biggest hit in the 40-6 loss at North Texas came from an unlikely source: 165-pound wide receiver Dezmon Epps. “I love the way he competes, he probably had the best hit of the day,’’ Petrino said. “(UNT linebacker Zach Orr) came and tried to wipe him out, and he knocked (Orr) right on his tail.’’ Epps, a junior transfer from City College of San Francisco, came across the middle as a teammate made a catch on the outside. He saw Orr bearing down on him, put down his shoulder and took out the senior Lombardi Award watch list member, who had 11 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. “He’s a pretty tough guy, but I had to show him I wasn’t a punk,’’ Epps said. “I’m 165 (pounds) and he’s 235. I kind of surprised myself with that, but it was just a natural reaction.’’ Read more: http://www.idahostatesman.com/2013/09/06/2745113/epps-makes-an-instant-impact.html Read more here: http://www.idahostatesman.com/2013/09/06/2745113/epps-makes-an-instant-impact.html#storylink=cpy
