Whats that say about the leadership in Providence? They tried to foist this upon the football schools.....

Why didnt the FB schools express their doubts last fall? I find it hard to imagine Marinatto woke one morning and said we should invite villanova, i'll call the media but not confer with the league members.

It continues to amaze me, how some people have such a low opinion of the football schools that they believe they are "forced" to do things against their best interests.

Which makes me thing this whole thing was staged a little. They wanted us to pay attention to Nova while the real moves was being made behind the scenes.

Or simpler than that, Nova had to be given a chance before TCU could get in. Contact with TCU regarding their interest was made prior to the announcement about Nova. 03-wink

The only reason the Big 12 is vulnerable is because there are teams that other conferences want. And the SEC, for one does not want a Big 12 school. They will only go after Texas A&M if there is a substantial risk of other conferences expanding beyond 12. The SEC going after TAMU is as counterproductive as the Big East going after Kansas since it would bring about a seismic shift that hurts itself.

And you are clearly wrong, that the Big 12 is not lucrative.

LMAO 03-lmfao

6 of those wins by North Texas are so old they came before college football was integrated.

The only modern era UNT win was 1975. That was the year before Houston joined the SWC. Hall of Fame coach Bill Yeoman redshirted and hid every player he could. As a result, UH went 2-8 and lulled the SWC to sleep.

The next year, we won the SWC and went to the Cotton Bowl. If losing to North Texas in 1975 was the price we had to pay to get to the Cotton Bowl in 1976, so be it.

LOLOLOL UNT

LOLOLOL Coog.

Can you dispute anything I said? In 1993, did UH Rice, SMU and TCU have any kind of Texas legislative support demanding that those schools be included in the Big 12 instead of Baylor and Tech? No. Did UH, Rice, SMU and TCU have attendance issues and in some cases NCAA problems? Yes.

So instead of laughing at me for pursuing a 2nd degree at UNT, please explain what I have written is incorrect?

Nah, what you wrote was right. Enjoy your music degree or what the **** ever it was that was worthwhile there.

Thank You. I'm not getting music degree. By the way, UNT & UH have a lot of the same characteristics. Big commuter school with sub par facilities and very little support from the alumni, students or fans. I have no grand ideas of UNT being anything more than what they are. It's big school that is affordable in comparison to SMU & TCU. I would have never chosen UNT out of HS but since I have a family, this was the most economical way to go back to school and get a 2nd degree.

FTR, UNT leads UH in football 7-5 and over the last 6 seasons has averaged 5600 less than UH.

Yeah, our schools are reaaaaal similar. Enjoy hipster U.
