The optics of dropping two Army games for two Liberty games may not be great, but I think picking up this UH series more than validates it. IMO UNT's schedule is better off than before.

Hopefully UNT will be improved enough by then to make this an exciting match up! GMG

Not really, Army would have brought out a much better crowd and local fan interest than Houston. Nobody cares about Houston in DFW

No comparison between Boise and Houston. Houston is just flash in the pan success and Boise has been the premier G5 program for the last 15 years

Kansas played @ Memphis last year. At 34,000 it was the lowest attended home game. SE Missouri State was a bigger draw.

Houston drew close to 47,000 to the Heart of Dallas Bowl. The biggest crowd in the bowl history involving a G5 team. It stands as the second biggest overall crowd. Short of the record by about 1,500.

They did play Penn State, the most prominent team to ever play in the HOD bowl, That name alone brings out local and bandwagon fans.

Based on my expert opinion you are incorrect.

Kansas played @ Memphis last year. At 34,000 it was the lowest attended home game. SE Missouri State was a bigger draw.

I think that speaks to establishing a base where the home team comes out regardless of opponent. It wasn't too long ago when Memphis was dependent on opponents for attendance numbers.

A reoccurring theme I've gathered from reading these boards for years is that TX teams seem to want other TX teams to help foster rivalries and help with attendance (whereas G5 conference games may be lacking due to proximity).

outside of texas (& west louisana) id agree but you have zero clue if you think this is true within texas...vs Houston is top 4 attended if not #1 for every g5 texas team...

we bring the most fans of any teams willing to travel to their stadium, about 3-5k.
i guarantee youd have said the same thing that nobody cares about houston in the austin area...except our game was completely sold out for texas state and had 3k people in standing room only (highest attended game ever for texas state)

houston vs unt is still unt's most attended game ever
not including utsa first ever year, where every game was doing crazy numbers, we are the #4 most attended home utsa game outside of year 1 (arizona beat us by a 100 people, another was a top 10 Oklahoma st)

you have zero clue about what you are talking about..unt, utsa texas state have all claimed they want to be rivals with us, their fans come out of the woodworks to trash talk whenever we play them..san antonios mayor makes a jersey bet with houstons mayor everytime we play...

We all believe Houston would generate more interest than Norte Dame, Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Michigan. What about UT, A&M? When you talk about bringing in a splashy opponent UH is way down the list.

More people watch SEC and Big 12 in Houston than UH (proven by top 20 chart) much less in DFW where UH is just an after thought. For a regional G5 opponent, yes Houston is good opponent but nowhere near the opponent UNT fans were expecting. I'm sure it will be a decent crowd with the local UH alumni but so would Army. And Army would have generated interest among local Vets, soldiers from Fort Hood and they could have a military appreciation day and showcased their university for potential students.

Ruston is not much further than Denton and Houston brought a smaller crowd than quite a few regional G5 opponents

BTW You are referring to UNT first game ever in their new stadium. It wasn't because they were playing UH, yeah you forgot to mention that part 03-lmfao
