Good. More excuses to lose. Our team really needed that. In case you haven't noticed, the President recently made Coach McCarter's team the most important sports priority at UTA. So far that only amounts to lip service, but eventually we will have a new arena, even if a majority wanted something else first. Texas Hall is not ideal, but it is far from the worst venue in our conference and is more than large enough to hold our crowds.

I know enough about basketball to see that an impressive arena has not brought decent teams to UNT. No wonder they are afraid to play us.

I'm not ready to give up on this year's team, so enough with the excuses. See you all at the games.
