What USU Fans Are Saying about UNT and NM Bowl


Recommended Posts

Re: New Mexico bowl is official

Post by Aggie84025 » Today, 1:52 pm

With Wells leaving and us losing to boise as well, I think this is a good spot. I am just thankful it is not the potato bowl. While the drive is short it is just not intriguing to me. North Texas is a good team and will be a real tough opponent. If we had our full staff here I would feel confident about this game, but with a depleted staff I am worried about a let down. Hopefully the players are motivated to go and perform well. Had a great time we played there a few years ago.

North Texas did a huge favor for USU when we led the way to sponsor them for SBC membership.  They were most appreciative of our school for helping them, too.

The Aggies will be the first ranked team (#25) for our favorite school to play in a bowl game.  That makes this a very special opportunity for the Mean Green.

Agreed,this will be a great challenge for the Meangreen

Then that same SCUMBAG school turned around stabbed in the back the very schools that had stooped to help them. USU can burn in hell for all I care, and take Karl and Rance with them. I hate that we are having to associate with them on any level.

They have proven themselves to be pure trash.

Please elaborate.  Not familiar with this story.

Yahoo bowl rankings named this the 12th best bowl out of the 39 bowls! 

There you go. 

I think the NM Bowl will be a barn-burner & if we beat the Top 25 USU Aggies maybe that translates to pre-2019 Top 25 votes leading up to the UHouston game at Apogee & then the PAC12 Cal Bears also in Apogee.  There is a path for Top 25 rankings in Denton—both OldDenton & NewDenton!

Top 25 sort of. We will not be preseason ranked in any poll. And we're playing Cal in California next year.

My bad on Cal part.  They “SHOULD”  be playing in Denton!  Wren?!?!😆

Mostly talking Top 25 points that can lead to a Top 25 ranking.

The NM Bowl provides one of the best matchup opportunities for CUSA during bowl season. This shouldn't surprise any of us.

I won't make the game. Can't due to budget, having a family of 5 kids including a 2 month old, and time frame. For those who can make it, please do. If you can make it, don't talk down to those who can't (not that I've seen this). We have had discussions of joining the Mountain West Conference conference to hopefully follow TCU's path. Now that we have a bowl game against the Mountain West at a relatively close destination (New Mexico), we as a fan base are complaining. This is a good opportunity. I just don't understand why we've had discussions hoping to join the MW conference and are now complaining about playing against this conference. Somebody please help with that? If it's just the financial aspect on such a short turnaround then I understand.

I think the MWC discussions on this forum revolves around the excitement of the kinds of teams they could bring TO Denton for basketball and football. It's never really been around the premise of, 'man I can't wait to get out to Fresno for the game'. It would debunk the ideology of regionalizing conferences, but we would without doubt be in a more competitive football and basketball conference. Traveling fan attendance would obviously struggle for teams coming to Denton and for Mean Green fans traveling to away games, but it would better position us as a competitive athletic program moving forward.

CUSA East schools can’t be closer than what many have expressed wanting UNT to be in a proposed  MWC East as a member with some schools from CUSA West in it—-that would be the only way to make it work.

MWC has more Top 25 programs that makes CUSA look like NCAA football novices.

🤔Who knows, maybe USU can return a big favor & sponsor us one day in such a MWC East division setup?

Look where all the MWC bowl games are played.

That's kind of irrelevant since we're playing in one of the CUSA/MWC bowls. And one of the MWC teams are playing in one of the CUSA tie-in games. Plus bowls are typically regional so they would take that into consideration when they add/shift/subtract or do whatever to the inevitable bowl shifting.

In mwc New Mexico Bowl is nearest to us.

Regional? Why is San Diego playing in Frisco?

On defense, the Mean Green its scoring defense is top 30 in points per game, top, 35 in yards per play allowed and plus eight on the year in turnover margin. This will be one of the tougher matchup the Aggies have faced all year.

      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.

      To see how each Mean Green team performed in the APR, find the full report by clicking the link below.

      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).
