UNT Deserves Some Respect
UNT is currently 3-2 (the 2 losses were to 4-2 teams SMU & Iowa). UNT beat UAB who beat LA Tech and UNT beat Southern Miss by 15 who beat UTSA after UTSA was at home and had a bye week to prepare. I’m not saying UNT is going to win the conference or even win the west, but I think UNT deserves some respect for what we’ve done so far and people shouldn’t act like UNT now is the UNT from 2015. #GMG

RE: UNT Deserves Some Respect
I had UNT as my sleeper team to win the west and so far, I'm spot on. :-) Litrell is one heck of a coach. Trust me, no one is overlooking UNT. The west is wide open after the USM upset/payback over UTSA.

Have you looked at recent power rankings on this site? Most have Texas Northern in the 2-6 range. USM's record is 3-2 btw

Granted, most of the last 30 years isn't great and some truly horrible. However, I can see why LaTech fans would not want to remember some of those Sun Belt games against us. :)

Respect is earned. There are like 10 C-USA teams with 3 wins. Go win some more then come back and beat your chest.

9-2 vs UNT since the 70's. And 2-0 while UNT was in the sun belt. :)

I like your enthusiasm, but respect is something North Texas will have to earn on the field every week. And, we are doing that. Patience, it is happening.

My thoughts as well. If we can take care of business against UT San Antonio, we'll be in the driver seat. We still have a lot of defensive questions IMO so I think it'll be an extremely close game. I actually picked this game as a loss in preseason.

Happy, but not beating my chest for North Texas. I’ve seen the bottom fall out too many times over the past couple of decades following North Texas football. To all UNT fans on this board, let’s just tap the breaks and play one game at a time. No preconceived results please.

Well, they've impressed me. That offense of theirs is fun to watch. I kept running the name "Graham Harrell" in my head wondering where I'd heard it from...Then it hit me...This guy was a "gunslinger" for Texas Tech a while back. I see a definite improvement in their style of play and in the culture of the team/program. Take them lightly at your peril, Conference USA.

Absolutely, on the scale of C-USA, UNT deserves some respect. The only thing that is acting against them is that the West is going to be brutal, with a collection of decent teams killing each other to get to the Conference championship game.

Good news is we're already through two of those teams and won both.

I don't think this board has any issue giving teams respect. If a team wins they get plenty of respect. I think we all know the fortunes of a college team can drastically change year to year so enjoy the good times and pray the bad times don't last long.
