    I don't see our fan base growing from the mediocrity. Why? I think it is a combination of things, but setting the bar the same every year like winning the mythical C-USA west is not exciting to lsu fans who gradated from Tech. We need to seek to be the Central Florida or Boise State of the G5. We need those fans and we need to seek them out.
    PD, this is the most talented team I've ever seen at Tech (as far as depth is concerned). This team looked like LSU from a physical standpoint the other night and pretty much went toe to toe with them. Tech has never been outstanding at the highest level. Keep hoping though... nothing wrong with hoping (but take some time to enjoy it too... life is short). UNT is also very good this year. They are allowed to be good too.

    The real problem no one is talking about is who will be able to watch this game? It is on Bein Sports, which Directv dropped a couple of weeks ago. Possibly the most important game of the year and no one will able to see it! Is it on Suddenlink or Dish?

    1. Stop fawning over North Texas. Their record is indicative of their cream puff schedule this year. We would be 4-0 with that schedule. Arkansas is playing some really bad football. They are down to 100 on the Sagarin ratings. Incarnate Word(208), Liberty(156), and SMU(104) aren't exactly a murders row.

    2. We are the highest ranked team they will face all year. Wish this game was at home, or after a UTEP/Rice game. The quick turn around from Saturday's loss will be difficult. They had a scrimmage with Liberty while we played the number 6 team in the country.

    I thought I posted an almost exact post on the "How to Watch" but can't find it. Looks like we will have to take the one week free trial and then cancel. I am keeping my ESPN+ because we have two more games left there.

    Since we're using Sagarin: You guys beat S Alabama (137) 30-26 and Southern (209....right below UIW) 54-17. You did play LSU (13) and made a game after they got up 24-0....but they seemed to adjust.

    Oh and since we're using Sagarin: UNT #50 La Tech: 84

    But.....I get your point. Quit fawning over UNT....we suck. We should've beaten that weak schedule much worse than 195-63 (saw a stat that starter vs. starter in basically 3 qtrs of every game is 175-26) But again....we haven't played anyone like Southern and South Alabama so you have a point.

    I hope you put in the back ups in the 3rd quarter and don't run the score up on us....we'll need to pick up the pieces after you stomp us.

    I'm just honored to have La Tech coming to our stadium.

    Welcome UNT fan. We've had a dearth of opposition posters this year. If I were UNT, I'd feel good about this game, but I'd be a little nervous. What's your nerve factor for this one?

    I think most of us believe we should be favored, but are nervous. 4-0 is great and all but it means nothing in conference. Arkansas is the most talented group of football players we have faced so far, but LaTech is the better football team than they are.

    Probably will be the best this entire year unless FAU can get everyone outside of Motor to kick it up a notch.

    If we beat you, there is a really solid chance we enter that FAU home game at 10-0.

    Re: 9/29: @UNT Game

    Everyone keeps brushing off their Arkansas win like they beat Central Arkansas....or, poor ole Arkansas-Pine Bluff, egad! Well, Ark is still in the SEC and I guarantee when it comes to raw talent, across their whole roster, they are more talented than anyone on our schedule, sans LSU and Moo State. And they didn't just eek out a 1 point win either. It was a blowout.

    Now, that does not mean you can directly compare scores, like Team A beat Team B by 30 pts, who beat Team C by 15 pts, therefore Team A should.... But! you can make relative comparisons. Relatively speaking beating Ark on the road by 27 pts trumps losing to LSU on the road by 17 pts. Yeah! LSU is better than Ark, which I'm sure they'll demonstrate when they play. But, 44 pts better? Doubtful.

    Playing on the road is always tough anyway. Tougher still when you play a quality opponent. Usually teams that play good defense give themselves a chance to win on the road.

    Defense, Bulldogs, defense!

    Arkansas had some QB problem going through 3 QBs (6 int for the day) vs UNT. I don't think they will win a game this season. Arkansas is bad this year.
