UNT alums @Evan, @Harry and @BeyondTheGreen give their hot sports thoughts on the successful Homecoming return of Coach Darrell Dickey and some new athletic facility plans that have fans very excited for the future. Recruiting expert @TheReal_jayD joins us for his latest recruiting analysis and another big weekend for potential Mean Green commitments. Audio Link:
  3. Grant: A fantastic job at SMU is a 10-win season. Horn: And they could have a 10-win season. Bass: They could do that in that conference. Like I just mentioned, how they got Courtland Sutton, I'll never know. That's such a big check mark in the Chad Morris column to me. The fact that you got that kind of caliber player and another bigger school sees that and goes wow we can get this type of player with this guy and he's recruiting in the area. Sherrington: Well he also recruited DeShaun Watson. Horn: DeShaun Watson, comes from a program, Clemson, that is not a bad program to be coming from. Sherrington: He would've been better off to come from there. Horn: You think so? Grant: I do think so. Bass: I'm just pumped Seth Littrell isn't on anyone's radar yet as he has my North Texas Mean Green up above .500. read more:
  4. So, where does Texas Tech go from here? ESPN writer Adam Rittenberg says that there are multiple names on the list of prospective coaches, including SMU’s Chad Morris, North Texas’s Seth Littrell, Troy’s Neal Brown and Arkansas State’s Blake Anderson. read more:
  5. DENTON -- Seth Littrell came to North Texas a year ago with a national reputation as an offensive guru and vowed to "tee it high and let it fly." The path UNT's head coach took to reach that goal seemed a little unconventional, to say the least. Littrell had been on the job just a few days when he handed his offense over to Graham Harrell, a Texas high school and college football legend with a short coaching résumé. Littrell's decision to hire an old friend as his offensive coordinator and play-caller resulted in a few bumpy moments, but it paid dividends overall. UNT will head into the second year of the Littrell era off a turnaround season that came largely out of the chemistry the pair have developed together -- and with their players. "Those two guys have a great relationship," UNT quarterback Mason Fine said. "Coach Littrell respects what Coach Harrell is trying to do. And Coach Harrell will bounce ideas off Littrell. Their attitudes complement each other. Coach Littrell is more laid-back, while Coach Harrell is always yelling. I am very comfortable with both those guys." read more:

  7. “I felt like as a team we were able to overcome adversity fairly quick because there was no finger pointing. I think we had good chemistry. We talk a lot about that. That’s why I think chemistry’s so important.” That’s a lesson he learned at Oklahoma, where he played and coached under now-former Sooners head coach Bob Stoops, who recently retired after a long and distinguished tenure in Norman, a departure Littrell sees with mixed emotions. “Well, it’s two-way. I’m very happy for him. This is something he didn’t want to do up until his 60s or 70s,” Littrell said. “He wanted to have a great career and when it was time to go, go, so he got to do it under his own terms, which I’m really excited for him. But I’m also sad for Oklahoma and college football because he’s an unbelievable head coach. I have a lot of respect for him not only as a coach, but the man he is, the way he treats his staff, his players.” Stoops was known for how well he treated everyone tied to OU football like family, but also for the enthusiasm and energy he brought every single day, two qualities Littrell, a member of Oklahoma’s 2000 national championship team, is also not short on. read more:
  8. Arizona State has appeared to fire a warning shot in the direction of head football coach Todd Graham. Jeff Metcalfe of The Arizona reports....possible replacements include: SETH LITTRELL Current Position: Head Coach, North Texas Like Mike Norvell, Seth Littrell has rocketed up the coaching ranks in the last decade. The former Oklahoma running back was offensive coordinator at Arizona and Indiana, and associate head coach at North Carolina before taking the North Texas job last year. The Mean Green went just 5-8 last year and still may be couple years away from challenging for a Conference USA championship. However, it wouldn't be the least bit surprising to see the 38-year-old field Power Five calls after a strong 2017 season. read more:
  9. With the final 2017 recruiting class starting to take form, North Texas saw several new additions this past week. Reports indicate North Texas has 20 spots to give in this 2017 class, so this is a smaller class than the typical 25 you can sign. With a week to go, North Texas currently sits at 16 commitments, meaning if all hold firm, you are probably looking at round 3-5 more spots left to give. Littrell also may decide to keep a spot or two in his pocket for a late qualifier. Overall, the Mean Green are ranked #11 in C-USA which does give weight to class size. North Texas’ top commit is Notre Dame transfer wide receiver Jaylen Guyton, an explosive receiver who is already enrolled. Cleburne athlete Tre’Von Bradley shows up at #2 and Houston Heights cornerback Cameron Johnson holds the #3 spot heading into the final stretch. North Texas landed several commitments, cornerback Jordan Roberts from Ardmore Oklahoma, tight end Hunter Gieser from SW Christian in Ft. Worth and offensive lineman Jacob Brammer a 6-4, 275 pound tight end (who will likely move to the o-line) from Foster HS in Richmond Texas. A number of key recruits will be in Denton this coming weekend for their official visits. North Texas recruiting class breakdown (17) Quarterback (1): Cade Pearson – Texarkana, TX (Texas HS) Running back (0): Wide receiver (1): Jaylon Guyton - Athens, TX (Trinity Valley CC/Notre Dame) Tight end (1): Hunter Geiser – Ft.

  10. On at 210 with Robert Wilonsky and David Moore. Right after Da Mayor Mike Rawlings
  11. Seth Littrell made this claim last December and now is about to have his team placed in a bowl. I thought he was crazy for it, but I have to give him props for being right. Thank you Coach Littrell!!
  12. Houston Coaching Candidate Wish List: 5 Replacements For Tom Herman Seth Littrell, North Texas Head Coach The Mean Green won just one game in 2015. Enter Littrell, who has North Texas at 5-6 entering its regular-season finale and on the cusp of a possible bowl bid in his first season. The former Oklahoma team captain, who won the 2000 national championship in Norman, coached under Mike Leach at Texas Tech from 2005 to 2008 and was at Arizona from 2009 to 2011. He really started to turn heads after he moved on to work under Larry Fedora at North Carolina in 2014 and was part of the Tar Heels’ 11-3 team in his final season before he moved onto UNT. He has only been there a year, but he has already started to re-establish himself in the Lone Star State. He is bound for a bigger job sooner than later. read more:
  13. Jersey update

    Someone signed my newly acquired jersey. Thanks Coach!
  14. DENTON -- Seth Littrell showed a creative flair while coordinating potent spread offenses as he bounced across the country from Arizona to Indiana and finally North Carolina. That creativity extended to Littrell's first few months as North Texas head coach. Littrell took what seemed like an unworkable situation regarding UNT's personnel and gathered the players he needed to make his system work, seemingly from out of thin air. Littrell grabbed headlines when he landed Alabama senior transfer quarterback Alec Morris to run the show. Dig a little deeper, and it's apparent just how quickly UNT's new staff has transformed a team that relied on a power running game just a few months ago. read more:
  15. North Texas head coach Seth Littrell, offensive coordinator Graham Harrell, and quarterback Alec Morris have one thing in common. The new Mean Green trio — gearing up for a revival in Denton following successful stints elsewhere — has not yet stepped out of the shadows of others. Littrell’s promotion to the head coaching landscape came days after the conclusion of an 11-3 season with the North Carolina Tar Heels, where the first-year Mean Green mentor served as the assistant head coach to Larry Fedora. The 11-win season is the most successful campaign in the Fedora era in Chapel Hill. In order to reboot the North Texas offensive staff, one of Littrell’s first hires was former Texas Tech Red Raider quarterback Graham Harrell. Despite a minimal coaching resume, Harrell’s familiarity with the air raid scheme paid dividends in 2015 with head coach Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars. The then-outside receivers coach aided an offense which produced the No. 3 aerial attack in the country with over 5,000 yards. Harrell helped Leach reach a new benchmark in Pullman with a nine-win season. With Littrell and Harrell intent on shooting fireworks in Denton, the duo rung in the new year with the transfer of former Alabama quarterback Alec Morris. In terms of success, Morris may have the upper hand on both his new coaches with 50 wins and a pair of national championship rings on his ledger. Just one problem: Morris threw only one pass over a four-year window in Tuscaloosa. An assistant head coach, an outside receivers specialist and a backup quarterback — with two nattys — waltz into a bar… Except this trio is stumbling headfirst into a barren wasteland that needs a lot of sprucing up. North Texas trudged to a 1-11 season amid a 56-point loss to FCS Portland State and the firing of head coach Dan McCarney midway through the 2015 docket. read more:
  16. DENTON - Friday was North Texas' 10th day of practice during its preseason camp and rain was once again a factor with morning and afternoon showers. Also making an appearance at Apogee Stadium ahead of his band's concert at the North Texas State Fair and Rodeo in Denton Friday night was Texas country singer Josh Abbott. Friday was the Mean Green's third two-a-day session of the preseason. The wet weather created an opportunity for players to battle through the elements. Head coach Seth Littrell was pleased with his defense's work ethic on the field, which is beginning to become a theme of this fall camp. Following every practice, Littrell picks one player who impressed him that day to break the huddle. Friday, it was defensive tackle Roderick Young of Spring, Texas. Offensive Player of the Day: Running Back Anthony Wyche Wyche, a sophomore, stands at 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, but the LA Valley College transfer isn't afraid to take on tacklers. Friday, the Philadelphia native ran over all takers. In open space he used his speed to outrun several would-be tacklers. Defensive Player of the Day: Defensive Back Dee Baulkman Arizona Western College transfer Dee Baulkman had an interception midway through practice near midfield when he stepped in front of the intended receiver's short route. Though the play was whistled dead following his interception, it's safe to assume the Bainbridge, Georgia, native would have returned it for a touchdown. read more:
  17. We got there early so we could fertilize and de-ant our tailgating spot. Overcast and cool morning. Most likely one of the most comfortable scrimmages I have ever watched. Sparse crowd was most likely due to the weather or change of start time. Offense in green, defense in white. 1's vs 1's, 2's vs. 2's and mixmatch. QB's with red jerseys and no contact. Did not see Wren Baker, but did see RV in the end zone. Front doors of stadium were closed so you had to walk around to the athletic center and enter across the bridge. One thing that is totally different with Littrell is his itunes songlist is booming over the stadium speakers non-stop. You hear it in the parking lot. When I say loud I mean like have to speak in the guy's ear next to you loud. He seems to like rap but also mixes in some country and classic rock. My favorite song of the day was AC/DC Back in Black, but I have to admit I was tapping my leg to some of the rap and hip hop as well. The only time they turn it down is when there is a special teams play, ie like a field goal or extra point. I found that odd, you would think you want it to be loud during that type of play. I am going to say overall, I really like the rhythm of Littrell's practices and scrimmage. Very upbeat and constantly moving. There is not a lot of debate or arguing over referee calls etc. They keep the chains moving. He personally is starting to show a tad bit more personality as opposed to the spring where he pretty much delegated everything to the assistants. I saw him high fiving guys after plays and yelling a little bit today. The best way I think I can recap everything is on a player by player basis. I was honestly more focused on the offense today. I am going to go through the roster and comment on everyone I can remember anything on. So here it goes: #1 WR Turner Smiley -- Decent day, he had one drop I saw he should have had on a sideline out pattern but he to me runs the best routes and has the best hands on the team. He is sort of the best all around WR we have at this time in my opinion. A shame we won't have him for SMU. That will be a big loss. #2 WR O'Keeron Rutherford -- Clearly the tallest guy out there, still fairly lean but looks like he has put on a little more size. Smooth and fluid. I really like this kid and can't wait to see what he can produce this season. #3 WR Tee Goree -- I was there for most (not all) of the scrimmage and this didn't seem to be his best day. Too many drops. Again it was just one day but not his best work. #4 RB Anthony Wyche -- WOW -- Maybe the MVP of the offense? He had one Sportcenter run where he bowled over a defender and wheeled his way to the end zone on like a 40-yard TD run. Good speed, moves. The entire green offensive sideline came off the bench to congratulate him. Most of what I saw were runs, I would like to see him catch more passes. Definitely a player that will help us THIS season. #5 LB Mylam Peters -- Playing LB on the outside. Made a few decent plays. Interesting body, very big torso with kind of lean legs. Seems to be better against the run as opposed to pass protection. Saw a lot of playing time. #5 QB Alec Morris - Great day. Looked 10 times more poised than in the spring game. Great arm, made some needle through the haystack sort of pass completions. Looks like a leader out there. I kept thinking to myself, "that is a throw McNulty could never make.." Get excited folks. This guy is the real deal, he's the best package at QB we have probably ever had. My only teenie weenie criticism of today, and I have noticed this with him before -- he seems to sit in the pocket a tad too long at times. Wearing a red jersey makes this seem like less of an issue. With our o-line issues, and the fact I saw MANY 4-receiver sets with a back in the backfield, it concerns me. I don't want to understate though, this guy can FLAT OUT PLAY! #6 QB Mason Fine - fun, fun, fun player to watch. Tiny out there but very confident and mobile. Rocket arm and very quick release. Makes mostly good decisions with the ball. He had one interception that was a bad decision but I liked the fact that Littrell ran him right back out there. It seemed he and O'Hara were splitting time with the two's. He's also pretty quick of foot as he had some decent looking runs. My hope is we can redshirt him as physically he needs another year in the weight room but I could see him playing this year if required. #7 DE Jareid Combs -- didn't catch too much of him, but love his size and speed off of the edge. One guy who looks the part of a D-I defensive lineman. #8 WR Rico Bussy - Only saw one play of his, unfortunately it was a drop. Does have good speed and seems to run good routes. #15 TE Caleb Chumley - was not dressed out but was not wearing a brace as I could see it. If injured it seems to be minor. He casts a long shadow with his height and size on the sidelines. Hope we can make it fit into the program in some way. #17 LB Courtney Finney -- He had an interception and made a very nice read/move to the ball. He looks small out there but he has really good quickness and an eye for the ball. I could see him being a real surprise this year after a rough 1st season as a juco transfer. #18 Devin O'Hara - Every bit of 6-5 but fairly lean. Nice arm, not Morris nice but better than McNulty by a lot. Graham Harrell pulled him after one bad decision but put him back in pretty quickly after. He has a nice zip to his ball and seems to be fairly comfortable with the offense. To me, he is not as good a runner as Morris or Fine and I think he would limit us in the offense to some degree from that perspective. Clearly the #2 guy and getting the most reps other than Morris. A nice addition, if only from an insurance perspective. #19 QB Quinn Shanbour -- was not wearing pads and did not play. #23 DB Kishawn McClain -- had the biggest hit of the day on a receiver. Just slammed the receiver a split second after he caught it. Crowd went wild. #25 RB Andrew Tucker -- had a couple of nice runs. I see him filling a nice jack of all trades type of role this season. He has some ability. #29 WIlly Ivery -- Had a huge showing today with some very impressive and long runs. Guy is just extremely talented and has some amazing field vision. Harrell HAS to figure out a way to get this guy the ball at least 7-8 times a game. On the down side, his punt returns while good were marred by fumbles. SIDE NOTE - - One thing I noticed that there were a fair amount of turnovers. Instead of the Mac regime banishment to eternal hell fire, I sensed more of a "That sucks but get back out there and try not to do it again" attitude. It will be interesting to see how it plays out this season. Littrell seems to value the effort more than the error. I could see this team making more mistakes but also making more plays. #30 Kicker Trevor Moore -- Had some hits and misses. Clearly he is the field goal kicker for this team and I am glad to have him. However, the book on him seems to be great accuracy and not great power. He missed a few mid range FG's he should have made. On the other hand, Our punter #84 Eric Keena on the other hand was killing it with both power and precision. If Keena keeps playing like this he may end up getting some NFL looks. He is that good. I thought he had a 60-yarder out there today and there wasn't much wind. Keena is a VALUABLE weapon for this team. #32 LB Fred Scott made a nice hit on a tight end across the middle play that drew some sidelines praise. #42 LB Corey Mann -- reminds me of Corey Pertile. Lean, very quick. A little on the small side which his why he didn't have more offers. Good nose for the ball. He is going to play at minimum on special teams this year. #50 LB LaDarrius "Hambone" Hamilton -- made a few plays, seemed active. Playing mostly with the 2's. #53 - OL TJ Henson - we got a good one here. He had the best pancake block I have seen in awhile on a pull from the right side, just destroyed a linebacker. He's better than I had hoped. Good feet, good size. Could be a REAL nice surprise this season at a position of need. #58 OL Wylie Reinhardt -- move from TE to OL. Listed at 265 - my guess is he is more about 275, 280. Looks more like a lineman. Gotta keep him eating. #59 O-Tackle Trey Keenan -- Listed at 272 and may be less by the time the season starts with all this heat. Probably our best offensive tackle in terms of defending the rush. Has good quickness and hands. Will be interesting to see how he plays. #64 Center Sam Rice -- had a battle going on with Bryce English for much of the day. I though Sam won. Also, his snapping seemed to be a bit crisper although there were a few low ones. It could take a few games, but he is going to be a very good center. #88 Jason Pirtle -- has a nice long TD catch from QB Fine after wrestling the ball away from a defender. Was nice to see these two hook up again. #86 Kevin Dillman -- wore a knee brace on the sidlelines but did not appear to be anything serious. THE END
