Lol! Go Mean Green...

I guess they're the 64th best basketball team in the country, which is about 45% better than the football team!

They were ranked 17th in the Mid-Major top 25 as of yesterday. There are over 300 Div 1 basketball schools.

Yes, the football team sucks a$$. Todd Dodge sucks a$$.

I remember being excited about the hiring of Todd Dodge at one point. What the hell?
Firing Dickey has turned out to be a horrible mistake.

Don't get me started on Dodge. The AD has put an ultimatum on his ass. 7 wins this year or you're gone. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Nice generalized statement a$$hat. Do some research on Div 1 basketball before you spew diarrhea out of your mouth. The Sun Belt is hardly a shitty basketball conference.

UNT has an identity crisis. When I was there we were the Eagles, now its the Mean Green. While I attended there, I also learned that apparently not only that, but the name of UNT was changed about 30 times in its past.

Eagles, Mean Green, NTSU, UNT.

All I know is that I'm the only person in my class with an undergrad degree from a state school in Texas (other than UT, of course). CAW!!! FEAR THE CLAW BABY! Lol.

Well duh, you're such a fucking genius. Noone is disputing the validity of basketball in the Power Conferences. Those schools have nearly an unlimited pool of money and tradition behind them. But I'm sure your super sports genius brain knew there were nearly 350 D-1 basketball schools in over 30 D-1 conferences all fighting for a chance at the field of 64?

What's really funny is you shitting on the name of the University you received your degree from. Pretty fucking smart. I've never heard UTA, UH, SMU, & TCU alum do that.

I know we finally got a nationally televised bowl game, and Chris Spielman kept referring to UNT as North Texas State. No wonder he was confused.

It is too funny that you think a shitty team is worth posting, and how angry you get.

Lol guys, come on. UNT isn't a sports powerhouse by any means, but I'm glad to see them do well. I was less than impressed by their assistance in job placement upon graduation, but such is life.

I will throw in my 2 cents:

The problem with UNT has been and will always be the lack of support by the administration. Darrell Dickey proved that if you field a winner the students and alumni will come out. UNT basketball has won 2 out of the last 4 conference championships and would be ready to get out of the Sunbelt if the football team could play like they did from 2000-2004.

Just when the school is on the brink of breaking out, the administration makes a boneheaded move by firing someone or does not allocate the funds to build the facilities to bring better athletes in.

Pretty accurate take. Dr.Pohl began the latest movement towards change. We get a brand new state of the art stadium in 2011. Fouts Field will see it's last game when KState comes to town next season!!!

I always felt that one of the biggest things holding UNT back was lack of support from the student body. Now, they weren't winning when I was there. So, if the student body support surfaced when they started winning, then I guess the above statement about the administration makes sense.

The students want a winner. They voted in an athletic fee. This is boosting the athletic budget exponentially & paved way for the new stadium. Let's hope our new President is Pro Athletics as much as the last 2.

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.

Well, the structural thing is an issue. However, you can't discount the fact the students voted in an athletic fee. NT has never had an athletic fee, ever. Speaks volumes on what the students want, IMO.

As for Dodge and the stadium, he promised a whole helluva lot as well. He's brought nothing but controversy while driving the program completely into the ground. Good riddance when he's canned mid-season.

The reason why they purposed and got the student fee voted in was the administration and athletic department figured they could raise more money that way instead of actually charging students to see the game like the majority of D1 schools do.

Many D1 schools have an athletic fee.
