Rice game that year. A friend and I were roasting their defense and one of the defensive coaches. My friend told them to go recruit better players so the coach turned around and yelled "F*ck off!" To my friend. It was amazing. I cussed back at them and was warned I would be escorted out if it happened again. It was worth it though after the Rice coach responded.

We won the game and as the players were walking along the student section giving high fives, one of our number 8s, I believe it was Trice, jumped onto the the wall and all us students swarmed him smacked his helmet as we cheared. We nearly dragged him into the seats.

Lifelong UNT fans were made that night. I'll always remember it. 

There’s a ton of information and lesson to be learned from this post, especially for anyone in a leadership position at a university.

We must have been sitting  very close,  do you recall getting into the punters head so bad he put his helmet on and went to the opposite end of the sideline! I remember being so bummed they took these away.

The punter incident sounds familiar as well. We we're ruthless from start to finish those last few home games. I remember the UTSA players showing us up when it was clear they were going to win. We started chanting "no postseason" because they weren't yet eligible for bowl games due to some FBS rules regarding them being in a transitional season.

There were many great moments that year. We as students really helped create an amazing home field advantage. It's a shame they took the seats away until now.

Says a lot when 9-4 with no division or conference title plus a bowl game against 6-6 UNLV is considered a megical season.

 

2015 Houston on the otherhand was a REAL magical season.

People like you deserve a good GIF!

You need to up your game.  Some UNT student roasted a Rice player so badly that it made him piss on the ice machine.

I remember that incident.  Is there a rule that would prevent a player from going into the locker room during the game ?  The distance from the ice machine to the locker room door is about 15 feet.  Thank goodness that eyesore of an ice machine has been removed.

I remember last years FAU game someone launched a Coors Lite man can at the FAU bench. Not cool because it would have hurt someone...but the point is that idiot fans can strike anywhere. 🤷🏽‍♂️

I think we should have our students behind the bench, but I would hope that the harassing would be "creative"  and not over the top or some idiots throwing items as noted above.

Ehh. Pushing a 50-60 year old professional overboard > pushing an 18-22 year old student overboard. Regardless, all a good job by the Mean Green faithful.
