Phillip Monty update from Tulsa


Recommended Posts

Tulsa: Philip Montgomery will return for a fifth season in 2019. “Coach is a good man,” AD Derrick Gragg told the Tulsa World. “He runs a clean program. He’s a player’s coach. They play hard for him. They haven’t quit.” Tulsa went 3-9 in 2018 and is 5-19 overall after going 10-3 in 2016.

Wow surprised by this. I think he is a good coach and a heck of a recruiter. Not sure why things have went so down hill there

I'm not.

When Tulsa was looking to cut money in the athletic department he took a paycut along with most everyone else. Wager they can't afford to buy him out and go into the marketplace this year.

How are you feeling about Anderson?    Think he's going to get a P5 opportunity he can't pass up?

Are the stAte fans wringing their hands like we are?

Blake’s wife’s breast cancer is out of remission and has spread he isn’t job hunting. His name got floated for Colorado before the diagnosis and no jobs since. 

He will be on and off the job in the near term with Trooper acting head coach any time he has to be out.

This really puts things into perspective.  I've had quite a few stresses come up lately in (large) family life but this one makes them all seem trivial.

Had 14 month or so remission. Blake and Trooper were roommates at Baylor, having him on hand to serve as interim as needed hopefully dials down the work stress so he can concentrate on the the  important

Had a friend buried on what would have been his 48th birthday a couple weeks ago. Was out running and collapsed. 

So easy to overstress the small stuff

So sorry to hear this.  We are all really just hanging on threads aren't we.  We shouldn't be sweating the little things.

      A school-record seven North Texas teams earned a perfect score for the 2017-18 academic year, according to the Academic Progress Rate report released by the NCAA Wednesday.

      Since the NCAA began reporting APR data in 2005, North Texas has never more than six teams with a perfect score in one academic year.

      Posting a perfect 1,000 for the 2017-18 season were men's golf, women's golf, men's cross country, women's basketball, swimming & diving, tennis and volleyball. For men's and women's golf, women's basketball, and tennis, this was the seconded year in a row to report a perfect single-year score.

      Of the 14 teams sponsored by North Texas, 12 improved their single-year score from the previous year.

      "I'm very proud of our student-athletes for their many records and achievements this year," Vice President and Director of Athletics Wren Baker said. "We take the greatest pride in their academic success which is reflective of the dedication of our student-athletes, coaches and academic staff. Collectively with the support of our donors and fans, we will continue to build champions and prepare leaders."

      In the multiyear APR data, eight UNT teams maintained or improved their score from last year's report. The multiyear scores cover a four-year period beginning in the 2014-15 academic year and ending in 2017-18. The NCAA mandates a four-year aggregate score of 900 as acceptable for each sport. The Mean Green tennis team has maintained a perfect 1,000 multiyear score to lead the way, and earn public recognition by the NCAA for being in the top-10 percent nationally.

      RUSTON – After finishing 2018 with seven straight wins, Louisiana Tech will carry that streak into the new calendar year of 2019 when they take on North Texas on Thursday night at 7 p.m. inside the Super Pit.
       
      The matchup will be streamed live on ESPN+ (subscription required) with Hank Dickenson and Paul Valamides calling the action.  Fans can also listen to the Voice of the Bulldogs Dave Nitz and Jack Thigpen call the game through the LA Tech Sports Network on KXKZ 107.5 FM (Ruston), KJVC 92.7 FM (Mansfield) and KRMD 100.7 FM/1340 AM (Shreveport) as well as on the Louisiana Tech X mobile app.
       
      LA Tech (11-3, 1-0 C-USA) opened league action with a convincing 71-56 victory over travel partner Southern Miss this past Saturday.  It marked the fifth time in the last six seasons that the Bulldogs began C-USA action with a win.
       
      With the win, the Bulldogs ended the month with a perfect 7-0 record, marking the first time since 1971 (and only the fourth time since 1950) that the team went undefeated in December.
       
      Sophomore forward Anthony Duruji poured in a season-high 23 points against the Golden Eagles, connecting on a career-tying four three-pointers.  It marked his team-leading 10th game in double-digit scoring.  Sophomore guard Jacolby Pemberton also connected on a career-high four triples (only had two total last season).
