  1. Speaking as someone who currently has Covid, it is the real thing. It is relentless and EVERY step should be taken to keep it from spreading. If it means we cancel a football game, then we cancel. If you think it isn't real or isn't that bad, then I would guess you probably have not had it.... and I hope you don't.

  2. I’m sure this won’t be a popular post, but I just wanted to provide a little perspective. The world is in the middle of the worst health crisis in our lifetime. Many businesses have gone under and many people have lost their jobs. Our kids that chose in person learning must wear face masks all day long. Many members of our government are now being hospitalized due to the virus. We can’t do routine shopping without wearing face masks. Even then, we still risk exposure to a virus that could be life-threatening. We were completely without live sports for almost 5 months. Some conferences still h

  4. We all watched the same game, we all saw the good and the bad moments, of which there were plenty of each. I dug a little deeper into the statistics of this performance to try and get some reference. Aune’s passing stat line: 28/47 for 339 yards, 2 TDs/0 INTs For Mean Green QBs this was the second most passing yards ever in a starting debut, behind Vizza’s 383 against Louisiana Lafayette in 2007. Aune averaged 7.2 yards/attempt in this game. Last season Mason Fine averaged 7.2 yards/attempt against FBS competition for the season. Aune threw the ball 47 times, which

  6. I'm willing to bet a substantial amount of money that everyone in Green wanted to play. Players, Coaches, AD, everyone. We can accuse the guys of not being very good, but I wouldn't question their heart to play... no matter who's on the other side. If you're insinuating we're using this to get out of the game because the team thought they were going to lose, that's pretty crappy.

  10. Couple of thoughts on this game. 1. Darden is just so, so good. I know everyone knows this, but it just makes the game look so easy. A great combination of unbelievable physical skills, the drive to work hard and the best part is his understanding of the game which probably goes back to his HS QB'ing days. 1a. Man, Bean looked like a different player tonight. Confident, decisive and a leader. Loved the shot of him on the sideline smiling. His speed is special and really adds another dimension to our offense. After seeing him standing by himself on the sidelines during the last

  12. I made a comment that it has been frustrating seeing us play so poorly knowing we have recruited so well recently. More frustrating is the fact that these recruits are being relegated to the bench by guys who aren’t performing. I looked at our roster and noticed this really does seem to be true. Our redshirt freshmen aren’t playing, and it really seems like Littrell and his staff favor the older players. Here are our redshirt freshmen and their predicaments: QB Will Kuehne - Not in two-deep behind sophomore QBs. No playing time so far. RB Oscar Adaway - Started the season as the numb

  14. Let’s not forget Fine’s first start he was just 11-22 for 108 yards against an FCS school. The next week against Florida he was 6-22 for 66 yards. He threw 6 touchdown passes for the whole season. Sure we can say he showed something, but let’s not make it seem like he was good from the get go. I get there’s a huge difference from a 27-year old redshirt sophomore and a 19-year old true freshman, but Aune is well ahead of where Fine was when he took over the starting job. Of course we shouldn’t expect as big of a leap as Fine made, but he’s going to get better with more reps just as every m

  15. Running back is one of the position groups we definitely have the least to worry about, but I’m not super impressed outside of Adaway and Siggers when he shows those flashes of last year. Torrey continues to get the yards that are blocked, and not doing a whole lot to get more than that. He was averaging 3.4 yards/carry before the 34-yard TD run where he was basically untouched right through the middle. We have to start busting more runs for chunk-yardage plays. 53 runs against SMU and our longest was only 10 yards. Tonight we ran for just 3.8 yards/carry. Too often we’re putting ourselv

  16. I am a middle school teacher. I got it the first week students came back on campus face to face. I had morning cafeteria duty the first day students came back. I had to tell the kids over and over to wear the mask over their nose too or to pull it up. It was a constant issue telling them to wear the mask in the classroom (they want to take it off at their seats). I had afternoon bus duty that same day. It was a mask free zone when they were waiting on their parents - not because we allowed it, but they would not listen. I tested positive at the end of the week. I have not been b

  17. The talent on this offense is overwhelming. Then look at our high school skill player commits, we have: - A 6’4” QB with 32 TDs/1 INT through 7 games this year and more arm talent than any QB commit I’ve seen us get, currently being coached up by Mason Fine - Two wide receivers with P5 offers - A running back with multiple SEC offers - A tight end who was offered by Texas and LSU at one point - A 6’5” 325 lb offensive tackle with multiple P5 offers. Defense still has some progress to make but I think the talent is not an issue there. Offense, we’re gonna be tough

  18. Now that Vito has predicted a loss, watch the guys win. If that's the case, and Vito predicts another win all season, he needs to immediately have his parking pass revoked permanently. In all honesty, maybe a trip on the road will do the guys some good to re-focus on the game... who knows?

  21. I think Littrell will be fine. He has a lot he needs to look in the mirror and fix, but I think he will win with this group of underclassmen. But still, allowing RV to stay as long as he did is what got us in this mess. Wren seems to like Littrell, but it sure would have been nice to have allowed him the opportunity to make that hire. Especially with how well his MBB hire has worked.

  23. First, allow me to preface my comments by stating that I don't think North Texas should fire Seth Littrell this year. Personally, I don't think any college coaches should be fired this year because of the whole COVID thing. Too many unforeseen circumstances have played havoc with this year. With that being said, the performance of the team both last year and this year has been nothing short of horrendous. Let's delve a little deeper. According to the USA Today coaching database (https://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/football/coach), Seth Littrell is the sixth highest paid head fo

  24. Based on the way tonight's game went, there shouldn't be any controversy. Bean is our starter in our next game. But the way the season has gone, the precedent has been set--if any QB isn't doing well, he's getting pulled for the other guy, and pretty quick.

  26. I think the most disappointing thing to me this season has been watching so many of our highly touted recruits from the recent classes relegated to the bench while the guys ahead of them perform poorly. Are the guys on the field truly the best we have? Are the highly recruited guys busts who are stuck behind below average CUSA-level players? Should the coaches be giving other guys more shots? When I saw the initial depth charts this season I was a little disappointed at how this was transpiring, but I gave the coaches the benefit of the doubt and trusted that the best players were w

  28. SO I went back to 247's recruiting rankings over the last 4 classes and see something positive. IN 2017, SMU ranked 80th overall, we ranked 115th. IN 2018, SMU ranked 87th overall, we ranked 101st. In 2019, SMU ranked 68th, we ranked 75th. In 2020, SMU ranked 70th, we ranked 68th. If we can develop kids from these last two classes into something credible, we can close the gap with SMU--unless they get infused again with more P5 talent that wants to play and get a degree from SMU, like Buechele has done.

  29. The difference in Bean tonight, to me, was the confidence he showed. He looked comfortable throwing the ball, was decisive with the option reads and didn't look hesitant to run the ball. He is an incredible talent, and my knock on him in the past was that he looked overwhelmed with the game. Man, he looked so much better tonight. Every game will obviously not be this easy, but if he can just lead like he did tonight, then he can be a game changer. I disagree that we have average QB's. We have two inexperienced QB's that just need to gain experience and grow. They have different skill se

So, I told her that my son could have guy time with me and go alone with me to some of the basketball games...she was not on board because she wants to go to ALL of them. Gotta love when your kids get genuinely upset about being left out of any Mean Green events. 🙌🏾 So then my wife asks how we will be this year in basketball.

  34. Why do we always do this? Whatever the previous coach is, we need the exact opposite of him. After Dodge, we wanted an experienced coach and that was the only direction we’d go. That led us to a retread who had a good season but was left looking like a dinosaur in both on-field product and recruiting. And his archaic offense and inability to develop/sign QBs and score points led us to narrowing our search to young and upcoming offensive coordinator types. Which led us to Littrell, a first-time HC. And if Littrell fails are we really going to keep doing this routine of “the last coach was

  35. Timing is everything. If memory serves we were 9&4, had taken Arkansas to the wood shed, and Littrell was a hot property. I think Baker and powers to be had little choice than to give him a new contract with an extension. I don't remember a lot of grumbling at the time . Rather I think most of us were pleased to have "locked him up" for a while. Having said that, when you compare what Dykes has done in a shorter time at SMU to where our program is today it has to make you sick.

  36. Don't be "that" guy ... Regardless if you are hating him as a coach, he's still a human being. He doesn't need to be shamed within his own stadium with you clearly going out of your way to do so. Find another way to express your concerns. Just my opinion. 😁

  38. I had it way back in early march (moderate case, no hospitalization needed). The fever lasted over 2 weeks. The health department would not clear me to leave the house for over 2 months because of existing cough. Of course, this was the very beginning of the outbreak. So, maybe they were being overly cautious then. I would say that it took me about 5 months to get back to completely normal. Up until Covid, I hadn't been sick in about 15 years. In the 3 months right after Covid, I came down with 2 stomach viruses and also an MRSA infection. In other words, Covid seems to have

  42. Hey coach, since you’ve been here you’ve run the same ridiculous play up the gut in short yardage situations. I would venture to guess it is over 85% of the time that you call that stupid play. Never do we see an imaginary idea. Anytime we have a nice gain that’s close to a first down, we also love to rush to the line and call the same smash up the middle for no gain. It’s 3rd grade play calling and beneath someone making your money!! Pathetic.

  44. So! They've pinpointed the problem? Well, so have I. 1. Our defense gets run around, past, and most sadly OVER by a 184 lb running back. 2. Our defense (most notably our blitzing linebacker) thinks that playing bumper body without bothering to put your arms around the SMU QB should be sufficient to bring him down. They also thought that about the aforementioned RB. 3. Our defense thinks that late hitting and drawing 15 yrd penalties is a great idea.

  45. I am in favor of playing the hot hand. If one is doing poorly. Put the other in and hope for better success. I am happy that SL made the move as soon as the turnovers piled up instead of trying to work through them with the same QB causing the turnovers.

  46. I believe we have a better Defensive Coordinator than Clint Bowen on staff currently: Mike Ekeler. I recall quite a few people on this board were upset when he left for UNC, thinking he was the better half of the Co-Defensive Coordinators back in 2016. Well, now he's back. I believe Littrell can "re-assign" Bowen to Safeties coach and make him take over Special Teams (they can't get much worse) so Ekeler can be the Defensive Coordinator, and if Bowen refuses, he can be fired without pay. The defense is approaching Chris Cosh-level bad (if it's not there already). Wh

  47. Benford is much, much worse than Seth. Benford completely flushed the program down the toilet while Seth has at least had some success here. I remember as a student I was so hyped going into Benford’s first year as head coach. It was immediately apparent how bad he was. I somehow watched almost every home game that first year, but haven’t been back to watch a BB game since. That’s how much damage Benford did.

  49. 3 of the 4 “TD” passes I put on the receiver. 2 dropped....actually hit the receiver in the hands. 1 of those, the defender made a decent play, but the receiver should have held on. The 2nd drop. The receiver payed out for it...had it, but dropped it when he hit the ground. Another, I believe was #15, slowed down when he looked back and missed a sure TD by about a yard. Run thru the pass and that was a sure score. The QB is not always responsible for an incomplete pass. Those were all in the 1st half and would have been a game changer.
