Bobcats and Kids – A Magical Adventure: UNT 81 – Tx State 77

The Fearsome Bobcat Student Section

Ed note: North Texas played the mighty Texas State Bobcats in San Marcos while K-State (and a crapload of Kansans) visited Fouts. Intrepid blogger and UNT alum (and apparent Aggie fan?) Quoner, aka Brians_Song reports:

Have you ever taken a child to a sporting event? I hadn’t. My experience with children at games was simple: scan my seating area for children and then adjust speech/alcohol intake accordingly. So, when my seven year-old nephew decided to join me, my father-in-law and wife at the North Texas vs. Texas State game, I didn’t know what I was in for. Could I still yell? How often will the kid need to pee? Will he get bored 10 minutes in? Also, will a kid who has only been to two Houston Rockets games get into a game with about 300 people watching in an empty stadium with a giant white wall on one end of the court?

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 a little drama, a lot of action, a little underdog (literally) and a great finish. Oh what a finish.

I hugged a stranger.

That kind of finish.

Troy wins again

I’ll admit that I had some hopes for this year’s squad after the performances vs Clemson and Rice. I almost thought that Todd Dodge had…

Canales Try-Out Series: Game Two vs Troy

Here we go.

Last week, after a throttling of hapless Western Kentucky I said we should put a hold on printing out a new head coaching contract for ol’ Chico. If we get a similar result today, I think maybe we can at least think about formatting said contract.
