I go to nearly every Denton Ryan game…I’ve never seen Seth there.  But I’ve seen Stoops, Gundy, and Sarkesian was there last week.  

That is really, really disheartening to hear but not surprising.  I know a fair amount of people and owners of businesses in Denton and they never see Seth at the mall, restaurants or any local events.  It's like he doesn't even live in the city.

He is usually at speaking engagements.

Has any UNT coach ever had a good relationship with Denton schools? Surprising that year after year there are so few Denton players that stay home, or even today want to transfer back home.

Disagree with Harry's last point that McCasland's success has something to do with Littrell's job security. Even if basketball had been struggling, Littrell's seat would still be on fire right now. Football stands on it's own in Texas.

Agree. If our expectations for football are based on the success of other sports then we are worse off that imagined. Seth's job security is based on bad contracts and a lack of money to make a move.

Harry did bring up a good point of how good we might be with a team fielded with Denton players. Since we have never been successful at getting locals, what can the next coach do differently?

Absolutely, there is a ton of talent in Denton and the area surrounding it.

I don't think NT doesn't get Denton players because of the coaching staff, the players most are referring to are top rated recruits.  NT doesn't get any of those from anywhere.

But we do not seem to be on the radar for the next level recruits. Have to think that not every Denton player is a 4* or a 2*. Should be a lot of 3* quality G5 level recruits in our own back yard

I am not going to defend Littrell and staff' recruiting, but they recruit the best players that they have a chance to get.  Why settle on Denton recruits just because they come from Denton when your best bang for the buck results come from the DFW and Houston areas.

Denton is DFW area…and Ryan, Argyle, and Guyer are deep contenders in the playoffs every year.  One of the keys to building a winning culture is getting player who hate to lose.  We will never be successful recruiting talent from toxic teams that underachieve.  The ️‘s next to your name only indicate tangible assets…the intangibles matter too and that’s how teams can find winning formulas with less talent.  At the end of the day, UNT has to have a staff that is exceptionally good at converting 3️ Talent into P5 talent…and when the P5 schools pick those kids up, we have to rinse and repeat.

Well in a roundabout way you are defending them with your statements to the contrary.

Yes, I am definitely defending Littrell by stating he needs to recruit were he can sign recruits.

Not sure even in a roundabout way that counts as a defense.
