    This ESPN broadcast is great unless you work for KLVI. I was just looking at the roster and one guy's stats jumped out at me. Adam Morse is now listed at 6-1 and 234 lbs.; I thought it was a typo. I looked at the group picture and it sure doesn't look like it's a typo. Without anything to back it up, I think that Lamar has a shot to pull off the upset. Call me crazy. That's all I've got.

    The game may be postponed or canceled. They will decide within a day or two.

    Lamar and UNT share the same bye week (October 7th). Pro for rescheduling would be getting a little extra practice time in before opening the season as practices have been modified with the storm. Big con however is that that would mean the team would play 11 straight games.

    Per the UNT Athletic Director on Twitter, they have been in constant contact with our athletic department and we "fully expect to play the game". UNT has also offered their facilities to us.

    Lamar is their perceived enhanced scrimmage game, before their regular schedule starts. As for as their concerned, that game is going to be played.

    On the flip side this is Lamar's money game that helps keep the program afloat...they will want to do everything possible to play as well

    This team needs to play a quality opponent before it plays a conference game. Odds of the lack of practice affecting the actual outcome of the game other than score are pretty slim. I say play it. Hit somebody other than a teammate.

    Re: **Lamar vs North Texas Game Thread**

    Do I interpret that Puddin thinks the Cards win the game had they not missed any practices because of the storm? If you believe the Cards will lose the game whether they had an extra practice or not then there is no fuzzy math. A one point loss or a sixty point loss is still just a loss. Like every money game the Cards have played since the return of football the things I would like to see are minimal to no injuries, good field discipline and a solid team effort. Yes eventually I would like to see a close game and even an upset at some point in the future, but getting prepared for conference and a chance to make the FCS playoffs is what these first two games are really about.
