I have made it back to town following media day down in New Orleans and have a couple of notes and tidbits left over for the blog.
And in a pretty important leftover note from Sun Belt media day, Troy beat man and old friend Drew Champlin reported today that Southern Cal cornerback J.T. Bryant has transferred to Troy and will be eligible this year. Don’t write off the Trojans just yet.
In non-football news, I chatted with Rick Villarreal for a story I am working on for our preseason football magazine. I also asked a little about baseball and some other topics. UNT has committees looking into multiple projects, including bringing baseball back to UNT and building a basketball practice facility. This is not a big secret, but it sounds like both long-term projects will become a reality in the near future.
