Horizon Gazing

It is way early to be looking into the future. Only one month removed from March Madness and seven months before November, anything and everything can happen. That said, even yahoo has jumped on the bandwagon. Sorta. If both Franklin and Mitchell are able to play next season and the incoming class makes an immediate… Read more »

Josh White’s Exit Interview. Sorta.

This spur-of-the-moment interview started because of drinking. My friend had had too much last night at a rock show and I had to give him a ride to his car this morning. On my way back, I stopped by the apartment office for free coffee and whatever free snacks they like to put out. So… Read more »

So you are a UTSA hater?

If you happen to browse the most popular UNT-centric message board you might have noticed the concern over UTSA and its progress toward prominence. That isn’t to say that UTSA is making large steps toward prominence. Well, none that are amazing. The basketball team is in the NCAA tournament again and won a play-in game…. Read more »

Thirty Six Points

Let me start by apologizing for my absence. Life has been bothering me and asking me to do things. I have complied, however unhappily, with the demands and have managed to carve out some time for important things like writing about North Texas basketball this morning. I hope it will suffice for now. Tristan Thompson… Read more »

Arkansas State Exacts Revenge 63 – 47

I was playing the semifinal game of our little indoor soccer league when North Texas was succumbing to fatigue (I suppose) and the defense of Arkansas State at the Convocation Center. We won by the way. Browsing through Vito’s running blog (dude needs a twitter account) I relived the game in all of the glory that one… Read more »

Surviving Without Holmen

This is such a weird year. 2010-2011 is the Year of the Injury in basketball and, most memorably, in football. That is right folks! I am hinting at more bad news! Holmen is out for the season with a broken hand! I hate to say this, but you have to wonder if this just isn’t… Read more »

Switching to Nike, Goodbye Southlake Carroll Unis

Seriously, they look the same. It was along running joke that Papa Dodge brought with him the Southlake Carroll Jerseys. In fact, I once imagined the conversation that started it: RV: You know, Todd Dodge is sooo awesome.Friend: Yeah. Too bad he coaches high school.RV: We should hire him.Friend: Yeah.RV: You know? We should hire… Read more »
