  1. I am hearing that a deal is done between UNT and former SMU head coach Phil Bennett to be come the new DC for North Texas. Bennett has had DC stops at Texas A &M , Baylor, TCU, Kansas State and LSU. Believe it is a huge grab for Seth with him bringing over 25 years of DC experience!

  3. I don't believe the sky is falling. Yes we have a lot of people leaving. But lets think about this for a second. Everyone is getting and extra year. There is going to be a back log on the roster. Some players have to leave to make room to being in more guys. Most guys that have left already had there degree.. but lets think about who has transferred so far.. Transfer so far Siggers RB - I love Siggers.. but lets be real. He was atleast 3rd on the depth chart. You have the young studs coming up Johnson, Ragsdale and the STUD Adaway. Also hearing Torrey is coming back. So he was

  4. I was walking my dog this morning and it hit me. Not my dog, an idea. An idea who’s time has come. The greatest menu addition since Kettle Korn. Hayden Fries ! I know nothing about cooking or spices or vegetable oil, but with a name like Hayden Fries, they’re bound to be good. I bet there is no such stadium food offering at Ford Field or Kinnick Stadium. No sir, just here at Apogee Stadium. Get ‘em while they’re hot ! GO MEAN GREEN

  7. Greetings to all Mean Green fans! I’m a longtime Rider season ticket holder and I love the discussion. Clearly Mason Fine is an exceptional talent and I am excited to see him play for the Riders. I expect he will play in one or both of the preseason games. Although it is uncertain if the season will start on time given COVID restrictions. Sooner or later he will play and I expect he has all he needs to be successful in the CFL once he adjusts to the nuisances of the rules and a larger field. All part of the fun. I notice #9 seems to be available right now. Go Mason Fine and go Riders!

  10. 5 Things I was hoping the new DC would have. 1. DC experience 2. Success at FBS level as a DC 3. TXHSFB ties 4. Shown an ability to make adjustments. 5. Head Coaching experience I am hearing and I have confirmed with multiple sources Seth has singled in on his top target. He has already met with the candidate. The target checks all 5 boxes on my wish list. Sounds like this will come down to can we out bid his current employers.

  12. Loyola alum and fan living in Texas (The Woodlands) checking in here. First and foremost - I’m really glad you guys agreed to play this game. It’s not easy scheduling a game on short notice, and the fact that your coach was willing to travel all the way to Chicago is awesome. Going through all the protocols, travel, etc. is no easy task, and your team was already at a disadvantage from the tip because of it. We were equally as happy to get this game as you, given the circumstances. Second - y’all should know our fans respected your team going into this one. It’s my hope we return th

  14. Mike Stoops would be a good choice. Currently an analyst at Alabama. His years at Oklahoma should give him familiarity with recruiting in the State of Texas.

  15. I love Brune. But I have to disagree. Seth had to do the safe hire. Not in a position to roll dice with you an inexperienced guy. Yes you could find the defensive version of Graham Harrell.... but it’s about 85% more likely you end up with Bodie Reeder

  16. We need SL to work out. He has built the bridges we desperately needed for so long. I don’t know for sure, but I think we lose all that and any potential momentum if he’s let go after 2021. There is no way Wren’s seat is truly hot. Anyone saying so is just trying to throw their own matches on his chair. Let’s get a DC and right this ship.

  18. Personally, I hate to see anyone lose their job but this has to be done and it is part of the profession they chose as a career. I hope he finds success in the future. Now let’s go get us a DC that is experienced, runs an aggressive scheme and is adept at making in game adjustments.

  19. He frustrated me. He can frustrate somebody else. He had flashes of greatness, but overshadowed by drops, in my book. Hopefully he can be more consistent somewhere else for someone not on our schedule.

  20. It’s college sports. If our players aren’t performing, the blame should always be on the coaches. Are the players not good enough? Then our coaches should have recruited better players. Are they too small or slow? Then our S&C coach isn’t getting results. Are the players not being developed well as football players? Then our position coaches aren’t doing their job. Having the 3rd worst defense in the country is evidence someone isn’t doing their job as a coach, and it’s on the head guy to figure out who that is. Something had to change.

  21. Baker's leadership at UNT has been incredible. He has been outstanding, and his coaching hires are incredibly successful. He was a candidate in 2018 at Auburn, and is deservedly at Tennessee now. Let's give the guy the credit he deserves, and lets keep him at UNT as long as we can.

  22. Phil Bennett confirmed on David Smoak radio show former SMU DC Jim Gush will be new linebacker coach at North Texas. great addition. Ton of experience and juco connections Galen Scott will not be returning

  23. Nobody understands the importance of this hire more than Seth. He is living it 24/7! To say he doesn’t care, isn’t trying hard enough or wants to be P5 OC is just stupid. It isn’t about the information he shares with us, it is about getting this hire right! Amazing how people trash somebody’s character when they don’t know Sh!t. GMG

  24. Eligible immediately. Will be an immediate boost in the weight and locker rooms. Under-recruited player out of high school because his major focus was on baseball (Owasso is a national powerhouse in baseball). Good size and great work ethic. Walked on at OSU and earned a scholarship because of his play on special teams. Is more of a "Midwest mike" LB but will compete for a starting position here. No doubt in my mind he will be a contributor

  25. Wilson ended up leading the team in rushing - when starting the year at the 4th RB on the roster.

  26. Novil. If he decides not to come back it will be because of how many here called him Norvil.

  27. I think the NCAA created more problems than they thought they were solving with this stupid "one year free transfer" rule. Think about how P5 schools could really screw G5's around this year. EX: Grayson McCall is an unbelievable QB at Coastal Carolina and he's only a freshman. Waaaay too early for a graduate transfer and immediate eligibility. But this year, if some P5 needed a QB, voila!, the G5 schools becomes a de facto minor league for the P5 schools. Thankfully he's staying from what I hear at Coastal. Either way, I can't wait for this dumb rule to be one and done.

  28. We really should be more mature about this. It’s not SMU’s fault that we pay our coaching staff millions and they can’t compete with SMU’s roster that makes the same millions.

  30. Part of that is that some guys just want to get out of town and explore a new area. You guys have the same issue except yours leave Houston due to their having warrants in Harris county.

  31. I am honestly hoping Seth can win enough this next year to keep his job. Because I don’t think as far as an offense if Coach we can do better. And I still think Seth has a very bright future.

  36. No, you would be making the most coveted number unavailable He certainly deserves special recognition, NT just needs to find another way, maybe name recognition like Greene, Renfro, etc. on the stadium wall. Also, I think it is too soon; let his career mellow for at least 5 years.

  37. DC, and not even close. For all of my bitching, Seth has proven he can run the O, and as long as we keep the O-line coach I am not worried about that side of the ball

  40. You don’t turn down a 4 star QB ever. 500 yards of offense... how much of that was in junk time? I like bean and aune. But I believe a true competition this spring. Let best qb have the reigns. Build offense around them. 2 completely different qbs. We ran the exact same offense for both. Mistake imo

  41. I hope that some of you are joking. Losing Wren would be a massive hit in the most critical position for the university. Look at his large body of work since he has been at UNT. Yeah, football has regressed the last 2 years. But, if we leave it alone (including the new DC Bennett) the next 2 seasons should be a big improvement IMO. It's was only a matter of time before Wren was on a P5's radar. We need to hang onto him for at least a couple more years.
