Heck when I went there, the word win was non-existant. I was going to school back in the 1AA Corky Nelson years. UNT tried bringing a coach out of highschool (Dennis Parker) and it worked out the same way that Todd Dodge will....Fired and setting the program back 4 years. UNT then decided to hire Matt Simon who took them back to Div 1. When he wanted the adminstration to ease up on the entrance requirements in order to recruit better athletes, the administrations reply was to fire him.
As far as the new stadium, it was promised to Dodge before he took the job. The real reason that the stadium is being built is because Fouts Field is developing structural issues that are not worth fixing and because it will free up room on the main campus. The capacity of the new stadium will be no more than the current stadium, however it can be expanded.
