You're in the NCAA's and actually leading heavily favored Kansas State early in the game. It may not last but you make the DFW area proud. UNT best music school, best public admin and now ... well we will see.

Yeah they lost pretty badly - KState is a jock school and spends way more on athletics. Hopefully they will get another chance next year.

There are some schools that are amazing at athletics, and not so much at academics. There are some schools that are amazing at academics, and not so much at athletics. What is UNT? (Hint: Not amazing at athletics and academics)

I agree with cody. UNT is not amazing at athletics and academics. As cody clearly received an excellent education - he was wise to point out that our success in academics has so far not been matched in athletics. There are some schools who are in the same spot, such as UTD and UTA, and then there are some schools in the area who are not amazing at athletics OR academics - mainly non-research universities like SMU or TAMU-C.

Well personally my alma mater is the University of California,Berkeley which is amazing at academics and in most international surveys its ranked as the Number One public university in the world. It has some pretty good athletics too, however its jocks actually have to go to class. They creamed Louisville last night.

Having said that, I think UNT does not have the financial resources to compete with the major national universities but I do give them credit for having made the Big Dance. They do have the best public administration program in the state. I stand by my initial post and the DFW area should be pround of them. I'm not sure any other area college made the NCAA's.

Wow, really?

SMU - the school that won a bowl game this year, 12-to-1 student-faculty ratio, 3.6 average GPA...? You would compare that to TAMU-C?

Sorry, but as a soon-to-be-SMU-alum who was just accepted to four of the top graduate schools in my field, SMU is widely underrated. (And is light years better, academically, than any other school in the D/FW metroplex.)
