Take On Me and FAU Ends the 17 game Home Streak

As we left the Pit tonight some dude was humming along to the arena music. Then he started singing along with it, “Saaake on meee.” That pretty much summed up the night for me. That guy, like the team, was close but not quite close enough. I made the comment on the twitters that North… Read more »

The Snow Game

North Texas Kicks Off Conference Play With Win Over UALR

For whatever reason UALR has the ugliest uniforms thus far in the season. Not only did the grey-on-purple look whack, but they were wearing ill-fitting digs that reminded me of the 1999 NY Knicks. Some (The Woman) say they looked like they came straight out of 1993, complete with the dude rocking a flat top…. Read more »
