North Texas vs UTSA Preview 2019

It is rivalry week, no matter what the message board people say. There are many flavors of rival, and they do not all look like the Iron Bowl. In CUSA, this is what it looks like: two struggling teams with relatively small fanbases (compared to the P5 programs) going at each other. Long time NT…

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.

North Texas Gets Stomped by SMU: 27-49

I have an unofficial rule that when two teams are evenly matched it will result in a blowout. SMU came in with talent and depth in certain positions, and NT with talent and depth in others. What happened was that their best players played better than the Mean Green versions. It is no more complicated…

North Texas at SMU Preview 2019
