    Well, that's what you get when you actually BEAT an SEC team early in the season. UNT did that at Arkansas. That gets fans excited, because they think they are finally getting a product equivalent to the big boys.

    LA Tech should try it sometime. Quit being a doormat to every SEC team we play. We still have a trip to Starkville coming up. Maybe we'll actually try to win this one.

    That little "swing pass" (almost like a screen) to the UNT RB out of the backfield was a killer. Mason fine threw that pass all night, and we never stopped it. We never assigned a guy to stop that play. Hopefully our defensive coaches will work on stopping that ONE PLAY before we play UAB. Otherwise, we will see that play all season.

    Oh....and TACKLE DRILLS. We have some DB's that need some serious tackling drill work.

    Look at the Dallas Morning News site Sports and compare that to the Monroe/Shreveport papers. A lot more coverage. They had at least three stories on the UNT/Tech game and still had room for the big Texas schools - Texas, Baylor, A&M etc. Since Denton is only about 30 miles away they consider them a home team.

Fans in the Metroplex aren't going to fight traffic to and from Denton to watch a team that the DFW media does not even cover.

    UNT took advantage of the wins to build on attendance. They did that with great marketing to their own. Our people are too arrogant to properly market to our own fans and students.

    I won’t argue the arrogance, but I’m pretty sure lack of experience and intelligence plays a role.

    Many people have reached out to him to offer suggestions and point out things that were hurting or that could our attendance. He actually doubles down on "dumb ass" when he is confronted. That's whey I call it arrogance.

    Our fans blamed our lack of success on Dr. Reneau in the past because he didnít have his focus on Tech sports. Is it time to say the same about Dr. Guice?

    Dr. Guice has given his AD all the rope he needs and much more than Jim Oakes or BVDV ever had. Dr. Guice even gave our AD a raise long before he deserved one. He is not a micro manager. I hope and expect he will evaluate and see that our athletic programs are less than where they should be. He is not the type ignore problems.

    Schedule the worst teams in the SEC, and it'll be done. We lost to a much better Arkansas team in 2016 by one point, and the same against an even better South Carolina team in 2017. You think UNT can hang with the SEC like we do? I sure don't. Hell, we've beat an SEC champ. but you're such a negative little bitch, you'd never praise the team for anything.

    We beat an SEC champ with Holtz as coach? Oh, wait, never mind...we've beat any SEC team with Holtz as coach? I missed that one. Who and what year was that?

    We might just give it against a sorry Mississippi State team that will be on a five game losing streak when we roll into StarkVegas this season.
