  1. DRC: Lake Ridge QB Jason Bean commits to UNT

    Seems like a good get by the coaching staff. The only thing that really concerns me is amount of wrist bands on this kid. I'm not sure who he's trying to impress but it reminds me a little of these guys.
  2. 2017-18 Bowl Schedule

    Looks like Conference USA has 6 bowl game tie-ins.

  3. Texas gunslinger Graham Harrell is back home — and thriving

    Hey, we could take this guy back if you wanted.
  4. Texas gunslinger Graham Harrell is back home — and thriving

    I based my comment from one coach in particular who spent several hours in the film room with Harrell and came away very impressed. Said coach (now in the college ranks) spoke very highly of Coach Harrell's in depth knowledge and understanding of the game. He was very successful as a player and like many coaches kids, he has a good feel for the game. Don't knock the guy because of who his daddy is and give him a chance. I'm confident he won't disappoint.
  5. Texas gunslinger Graham Harrell is back home — and thriving

    I agree he is having some growing pains but there is no doubt he could be a star coach in the making. I have talked to several high school coaches who have spoken very highly of him. While we didn't throw up great numbers last season, keep in mind it was the first season with limited talent in a brand new system. But Harrell has been around the game long enough at all levels to truly understand the game. I have no doubt he will become a solid coach.
  6. Good write up on Coach Harrell. I hope we can keep him as long as possible. But if / when he leaves Denton, its a good sign of success.
  7. While I agree with the concerns regarding Fine's overall talent and ceiling level, you can't disregard the intangibles he brings to the table. He may not be the most talented (there's a reason we were the only D-1 school to offer him) but he is a leader who understands the game of football. From listening to him speak, he has an insanely square head on his shoulders and is focused one thing and one thing only, winning football games. There was a certain #11 that played quarterback here a few years back that wasn't the most talented either but possessed the right leadership skills for the position. Fine might not be the most talented but he is by far better than what we've had in many years.
  8. LaLa Suspends 13 Players

    Not good news out of Lafayette. "Louisiana-Lafayette has suspended 13 players for a violation of team rules. According to the school’s police department, that violation of team rules is because the players allegedly robbed a dorm room. Per a release from the department, the players allegedly took $2,400 worth of items from a person’s dorm room April 5. The players were identified via video surveillance, according to the Daily Advertiser. All are charged with conspiracy to commit felony theft and turned themselves in to the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. The suspended players are tight end Matthew Barnes, defensive end Joe Dillon, defensive back Robert Hunt, offensive lineman Denarius Howard, defensive end Jarvis Jeffries, defensive end LaDarrius Kidd, linebacker Terik Miller, defensive back Damar’ren Mitchell, running back Trey Ragas, defensive back Simeon Thomas, defensive back Levarious Varnado, offensive lineman D’Aquin Withrow and running back Jordan Wright. Wright was the team’s fourth-leading rusher with 192 yards in 2016. Mitchell had 52 tackles while Dillon had 51 tackles and led the team with seven sacks. Thomas had 40 tackles and Howard had 32. The football team’s release said it wouldn’t discuss the incident out of respect “for the judicial process.”
  9. Mark Tikhonenko transferring to UNT

    Looks like he was committed to Arkansas St. and GMac brought him along. And according to 247Sports, he had an offer from Iowa State. I'll take it.
  11. This strategy works for lower levels of football but works less and less as you move up the 'talent' ladder. In other words, the math works when your punter can only hang one 25-30 yards from scrimmage or your kicker can only boot one downfield 40 yards. Furthermore, as players get bigger and faster (older), they can cover more ground at a faster and faster rate. So yes, this works when your kicker has a small leg and your cover guys can't get downfield quickly. But at higher levels, this works less and less as kickers progressively get stronger legs and players can cover downfield at a faster rate. As the kicking game gets more specialized, teams can flip the field more easily, making this model obsolete.
  12. Mitch Trubisky

    I just saw that several scouts have Trubisky as the #1 QB on the board for the NFL draft. I was curious if Littrell was the one who recruited him to UNC? Either way, it is encouraging that Littrell tutored such a highly rated quarterback.
  13. Hat off to Alec Morris

    I have to tip my hat this man. He had every reason in the world to check out once he lost the starting job in week 2. He was the anointed starter the moment he said he was coming to Denton and naturally didn't look sharp in his first game in nearly 4 years. He knows he won't be playing football ever again after this season. It would have been easy for him to put his dauber in the dirt and not give a damn. There a lot of other kids out there that would have done just that, quit. But Alec stuck with it, stayed in tune, and led us to one of our biggest victories in many years. When we needed him most, after squandering the lead and going down 23-20, he looked sharp and decisive, leading us on the go ahead drive. Given his situation, it shows a lot of character to stick it through. Now I hope he can do it two more times this season (UTEP + bowl game).
  14. Predict the North Texas / Southern Miss score

    "Are you saying Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?"
  15. Predict the North Texas / Southern Miss score

    UNT - 31 USM - 27 We'll generate a few scores off of turnovers and make one or two big stops inside the red zone (i.e. Army game). At the end of the day, our defense will have to find a way to win the game.
