North Texas vs Houston Preview

This has been an strange week. The Houston Cougars star QB D’Eriq King abruptly announced that he is redshirting the rest of this season — a prelude to a transfer perhaps — that would remove him from the upcoming game vs North Texas.  Incredibly, his backup is Clayton Tune, Hebron HS’s own steps into the…

Houston QB D’Eriq King to Sit Out NT Game, Season | Updated

Breaking news from Joseph Duarte of the Chronicle:

King is the best player on Dana Holgerson’s offense and one of the most dynamic players in the nation. He just broke the NCAA record for consecutive games with a passing and rushing TD at 15 in the loss to Tulane.

North Texas was going to have a big challenge ahead of them but this makes things much easier.

There are developments. Apparently we will figure out if he is really leaving later this afternoon.

Finally, it is official. He is out for the year. So is WR Corbin.

North Texas vs UTSA: Live Blog

We want to try a little something different this time. Usually, we take in the game and do our commenting on the twitter machine. We will still be doing that, but will add to the conversation here. Twitter can be great but also very annoying. It is halftime. NT up 24-3 on UTSA and Mason…

North Texas vs UTSA Preview 2019

Report: Hotel Stays Before Home Games Are ‘Costly, Questionable’

GateHouse News published a report looking at the costs of college football team’s practice of staying in a local hotel before the home games. The idea behind this is that it brings a focus for the team, and keeps them out of any Friday night trouble.

Putting all 100 or so guys in a hotel room where you can monitor activity and make sure they get to sleep is ideal when you want to control all aspects of their preparation.

Ohio State University, which spent $93,000, said hotels provide a venue for camaraderie, structured team meals, the ability to monitor hydration and a “restful night of sleep” thanks to bed checks and a set lights-out time.

There are studies that suggest getting a nice rest at home is preferable in most cases, however.

North Texas reportedly spent just under $8 grand per night on this practice.
