UNT v Rice That was kind of a horrible game. Thanks to Tristan Thompson and a successful full-court press, North Texas squeaked away with a win.
The Super Pit After introducing the Phog last Friday for the game at Kansas, its time to talk a little about the UNT Coliseum, the Super Pit.
That’d be the Phog and the Phog Phog Allen was born Forrest Clare Allen in 1885. Which would make him125 years old, yesterday. Who is this man that led the University of Kansas to name their basketball arena after him? Well, he was pretty awesome. A quick browse of his Wikipedia page lets us know that he won… Read more »
Josh White: Beast Already being called the most amazing atmosphere at the SuperPit — and maybe at a UNT venue ever– the win versus the Red Raiders was many things — a statement, a big win, a great way to start the season — but most of all it was fun. Yeah. Fun. It had… Read more »

Should we keep the guy based of the 33-6 beat down over perennial fodder Western Kentucky? The answer is no. Should we keep the guy if he runs off three or four wins against the conference plus K-State? The answer is maybe. Will we?
He was near the top of every coaches hot seat from the beginning of the year and probably the lists from last year as well so it wasn’t too much of a surprise when Papa Dodge got canned yesterday morning. It was damn near expected. We won’t be able to accurately put into perspective his… Read more »
The big recap will come tomorrow. For now, here are some quick points: Our offense looked like we had a fourth stringer running it. Chase Baine kept us in the game with his running ability. Our line was not there — again. That was the most mountainous five point deficit ever. I’m glad we came… Read more »
