Tony Benford Is The New Coach

Today we hired a new coach for the basketball team. Where you stand on Tony Benford depends on what you think this team needs. Do we need the guy that recruited Tony Mitchell, Chris Jones, and Jordan Williams? Then we needed Shawn Forrest. Do we need a successful, name guy that knows Tony Mitchell and…

Spring Game 2012 From Afar

I watched some of the spring game today. You see, instead of making the trip up to Denton this weekend, I spent my money and time at the Oyster Bake eating and drinking and laughing. A good time was had here. From all accounts, a good time was had at Apogee, as well. The Green…

Heartbreak in Hot Springs: North Texas 70 WKU 74

We were punched in the gut for the second year in a row. Same result from different opponents. This was a lot different than last season, though. That was the last hurrah for the most successful class in UNT history, this is the start of the most talented. All five starters in the SBC title…
