  2. I thought I'd check to see if anyone had an update on Mr. English's foot rehab.? We sure could use his skill on D line this year.

    Jeffery Wilson Draft Profile

    I believe Tampa Bay's kicker this year was pretty pathetic.

    Scotty Conley gets new gig

    Good for Mr. Conley. The free market at work. Gets pension, then Oh, another employer invests in Mr. Conley's skills, talents, and ability. Another source of income for an older individual (and family) with wisdom and plenty of contacts in the HS coaching world in TX.. I'm sure Mr. Conley has a few idea's about how to implement and improve football operations at Ark. St.. You'd have to believe the AD at Ark. St. discussed Mr. Conley's thoughts surrounding football operations at Ark. St. interview process along with Mr. Conley's developed relationships with TX high school coaches. Of course it will take several years to see how/if Ark. St. recruiting improves within TX.. There's not one of us especially older individual's who just fade away in the night just because they lost there job, or separated from an employer. Mr. Conley must have a good/great reputation in some circles since his time between jobs was so brief.
  6. Really, That's what you focus on in my post. Point is folks on this board have been critical of UNT recruiting and there thoughts on players talent based on offers and many other subjective criteria. Take a look. This is one of the last players UNT had that went to NFL. Wow...3A Powerhouse. Source: Wikipedia "Brad Kassell attended Llano High School in Llano, Texas and was a letterman in football as a quarterback. In football, as a senior, he rushed for 1431 yards and 20 touchdowns and passed for 839 yards and eight touchdowns, and was named the Class 3A All-West MVP, and won All-State second team honors. Brad Kassell graduated from Llano High School in 1998." Look at this. Mr. Kassell wasn't a QB in the NFL. Imagine that.
  7. Come on now. I remember in the Coach Dickey days his staff would look at a lot HS players from 2,3, and 4A in the sticks or on main hwy's. When DD told recruits not to mention they were being recruited by UNT, or committed to UNT many on this board were tremendously critical of Coach Dickey for this (Stealth Recruiting) approach. When SL's staff does the same now everyone is WOW...very smart!! This goes to show there is a ton of talent in the State of TX. Can you imagine if the NCAA hadn't bused up the SWC. It's a shame all the HS talent in the state is so willing to play football outside the state of TX!!! It's no surprise Coach Dickey in going to A&M as offensive coordinator. I'm confident DD will be a head coach in the near future. Go Mean Green!!!

    Jordan Redfearn Aubrey (Aubrey, TX)

    Thanks...I didn't see that update. Can you please define Blueshirt. I'm familiar with Grayshirt. Blueshirt, not so much.
  10. Anyone have an update on Jordan Redfearn signing with UNT? I know he had knee injury and surgery. Did our coaches pull Jordan's offer? If not, when is Jordan going to sign? Go Mean Green!!

    Chad Morris headed to Arkansas

    I don't know why you'd be looking forward to the game with Arkansas. Arkansas SEC and even though they are a less than stellar team in the SEC there offensive and defensive lines are HUGH compared to UNT. Until UNT can recruit and develop our OL & DL with better and more talented linemen it's going to be a long day for Mason F. our offense, and defense. I sure hope our staff has a good/great recruiting year with lot of big, productive OL & DL talent. UNT sure does need it.
  12. Then explain to me how it's even reasonable to pick the New Orleans Bowl before we have played in the c-usa championship game? If we win that game we are 10 and 3. With the possibility of going 11 and 3. And you want to tell me somehow that we can't get a match up in a bowl that has more Prestige than the New Orleans Bowl. The first bowl of the bowl season. As I stated before last year we were 5 and 7 and played Army and the HoD Bowl. So now you want me to believe that the HoD doesn't want us back, where I know they can put Texas or Texas Tech or K State in their bowl game, and hopefully sell out the freaking Cotton Bowl. And I'm the stupid uneducated one. And I can't question the motives of our prestigious ad department or UNT Administration. Evidence by the last 50 years of how they've handled UNT Sports. Really. And I'm the stupid uneducated one. Go figure. I guess y'all do math everyday that two plus two equals freaking five. And yes I did this post on voice recognition so it's not going to be perfect.
  13. Oh, So I'm supposed to believe that the HoD, or Independence bowl doesn't want a possible 10-3 team that's 1-1 against FAU, beat Army, was ahead of Iowa at the half and beat every other C-USA school. Then has probably 200,000 to 300,000 plus alumni in the state of Texas to buy tickets to there bowl game. But in there bowl committee's infatuate wisdom has pasted on UNT as a bowl invitee. Really, that's what I'm supposed to believe!! OMG, I'm not that freaking stupid. Independence Bowl may want La Tech, but UNT would put just as many fans in the stands as La Tech. and be much more profitable for the business owners in Shreveport.
  14. Rudy & untjim1995, Glad y'all think what I wrote of the "Stupidest thing you've ever read". It's been stated now by 2 journalist that UNT Bowl destination has already been determined and UNT hasn't even played C-USA championship game yet. Then, not matter the outcome a 10-3 UNT football team is destined for the "NO Bowl", so players and fans can look forward to partying instead of playing a P5. team. When this is all said and done you're going to see another team from the C-USA play a P5 team with good conference or national name recognition other than FAU. As it stands now that other C-USA team won't be UNT no matter if we're 9-4, or 10-3. UNT beat every other C-USA team but FAU. That's going to be a real kick in the pants to UNT players, and should be to Seth Littrell, our AD, the UNT administration, and anyone else with a brain. I wish I could be a fly on the wall to hear Seth Littrell's speech to the football team players tomorrow before the C-USA championship game knowing that it's already been predetermined that UNT will be playing in the NO Bowl, no matter the opponent. I would say more but both of you think my posts on this matter are "ridiculous"!! Shazam!!!
  15. Shazam, there's a bunch of people in the UNT athletic department, and in the administration that think the UNT fans must be pretty stupid. If we go to the New Orleans Bowl after season like this, because we've been forced to, so be it. But someone's going to have to come out and tell us the truth after the dust settles. The UNT faithful aren't this dumb and stupid. Oh, maybe some are but you can't count me in that group of people.
