  1. ….from the NCAA REGIONALS and will play the Okie State Cow Patties in the Regional Finals tomorrow. The Mean Green are now ranked no worse than 32nd in the nation. BTW,…I would have posted this in the Softball forum,…but unlike our #1 sport Men’s Basketball, our now #1.2 sport Softball doesn’t have one ….yet. Rick

  2. Yet, Seth the arrogant did not start Aune in the first game last year. Seth has started both Ruder and Bean over Aune. Aune ended up with the job because he performed better than anyone else at QB. Littrell has now signed 3 transfer QB's, which seems to me to indicate that he is disparity searching for a QB with a higher ceiling than Aune.

  3. Admins, feel free to move this but I really wanted to get this in front of the biggest audience possible. On June 11th, I will be repelling off of a 6-story tower to raise money for the Children's Advocacy Center of North Texas. The money raised will support therapy sessions for children who are brave enough to come forward about abuse. I encourage everyone to click the link below and give! Children's Advocacy Center for North Texas, Inc. - Argyle Police Department's fundraiser (networkforgood.com) Also, if you are local, that same day my police department will be hosting our 2nd Annual Child Safety Fair. It is free and will include a LOT of activities, information, and giveaways to keep kids safe. https://fb.me/e/mKaHLkhsM

  4. Wow. A lot of you guys have forgotten about guys like: Darius Terrell Reggie Pegram Cam Feldt Alec Morris Bryce English Nick Harvey Dominique Harrison Jordan Rucker Jace Ruder Jacob Ferrell Tommy Bush (TBD) These dudes were highly-rated transfers from big time P5 programs over the past 10 years when they came to UNT... and did (or have done) virtually nothing. We had a bunch of other also-ran P5 transfers over the years as well: Reggie Pegram & Jordan Rucker-types who came from P5's but didn't have the crazy offer lists... So, for every Marcus Trice (THE ONLY P5 TRANSFER WHO MADE A GAME-CHANGING IMPACT OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS!!!!), there are a dozen+ P5 transfer guys who barely did anything. And then, you have guys like DeAndre Plantin who started a lot, but just underperformed for what his expectations were. Gunnell not being able to win the Memphis job outright from Henigan (who, admittedly is a fantastic QB) should be a reason for at least a little pause, but some of y'all are full-steam ahead on this guy. Same thing with Neville, who was told by a pretty pedestrian Nebraska team that he's not good enough to crack the 2 deep there. I don't comprehend how y'all can constantly just assume these guys will come here and light it up... history shows they don't. I just can't get excited for these kinds of transfers anymore. Too much heartbreak. Show me.

  5. TBT is a huge tournament where the winning team gets a cool $1million! If you watch the video montage at the end, it appears JJ & DJ might pull down the following dudes: Tony Mitchell Jordan Williams Shannon Shorter (I believe all 3 of these dudes are still playing professionally overseas). Thomas Bell III James Reese Zach Simmons Javion Hamlet That team would be friggin SCARY, and would make any game they're in a must-watch for any Mean Green Basketball fan!

  6. So many people were hating on Littrell for not landing big recruits early in recruiting and on (traditional)signing day. But as we all know, these are different times and they call for new ways of doing things. I think Littrell’s patience is paying off. He knew kids would go through spring ball only to find themselves down the depth chart and wanting to move on. Now with scholarships still open, we’re waiting with open arms for kids wanting a fresh start and looking to be on top of the depth chart. I hope this strategy continues to pay dividends and we can continue to land some upgraded talent.

  8. I just heard from the ENMU Head Coach Tye Hiatt. He was very warm and supportive. He said that Kason will join them this summer and have two years of eligibility. He said that they had high expectations! I am pleased. The Coach said he could help us get tickets for us to see him play. Good news for a good young man indeed. GMG

  9. Was a 3 star - .8851 rated QB in the 2019 class with offers from AZ, AZ St., Ohio St., TAMU, Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, CA, Central Arkansas, FL. St., Georgia, Hawaii, Houston, IN, Iowa, KU, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi St., Missouri, NE, UNC, Northwestern, OK St., Ole Miss, Oregon, Pitt, Purdue, smu, TCU, TN, TSU-SM, TX Tech, Tulane, UCF, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin. He signed with Arizona, entered the portal in December 2020 and signed with Memphis before entering the portal again and committing to us. I hope he has found a home and recaptures the magic that made him such a sought after recruit in high school. https://247sports.com/Player/Grant-Gunnell-84631/

  10. Strange isn’t it. We get a D2 transfer in basketball with no negativity. We get an all-conference D2 football transfer and get plenty of negativity.

  11. ….known as the attic of my house I found this gem from the Helwig era. Spawned from the final straw witnessing our men’s basketball team come out in puke-looking shiny blue satin warm ups. I know @greenjoe will remember. UTA player to several North Texas players before tip off: “You fools look like the Solid Gold Dancers!” Rick

  12. Bad take. Ruder had 1 career TD prior to UNT. This guy has 15 to 2 interceptions playing on a bad team against superior programs. Ultimately it'll come down to our coaches.

  14. I saw on Twitter where he earned his degree in Criminal Justice although he is still a junior eligibility wise. I hope he stays around and plays his final two years and puts the injury bug behind him while working on his Master's degree.

  15. Looking like another solid pick for the team. Massive offer list out of HS and he has 4 years of eligibility left. https://247sports.com/Player/Latrell-Neville-46054704/high-school-216147/

  16. Man Littrell and the staff are really finishing extremely strong. Very encouraging. Also like that this young man is from Houston. Could open up a pipeline.

  17. I think this is pretty good. A couple differences I have just from listening to Brune and John Fields’ breakdowns are: - Seems like Sifa Leota was the starting Devil this spring. - Gaddie was playing corner, and I think Whitlock was playing the EAGLE position as the 5th DB. And I believe Nick Nakwaasah was the other starting safety next to Crosby. - Jett Duncan got the most reps at Right Tackle in the spring. He is definitely good enough to play, just seems they are trying to find a spot for him and Right Tackle is the most open spot. But at 6’2” we’ll see if he can get it done at tackle. - Not sure whose spot he would take, but it really seems like Jay Maclin is going to be a starting receiver. Also, I keep seeing people spell his name “Gunnels.” It is Grant Gunnell. No “s” at the end.

  18. My recollection is Ruder was never the starter at UNC but Gunnell was the starter for Arizona for the entire 2020 season. Ruder threw 7 passes in 3 seasons at UNC while Gunnell threw 248 in 1 and a half at Zona.

  20. NIL has deadened my love for college athletics. I didn't think that would be possible, but I don't care nearly as much as I did a few years ago because of the nonstop transfers and the money...it's no longer the same.

  22. Not meaning any disrespect to Mr. Gunnell, but shouldn't we have our softball team honored with that spot? They are scheduled to beat Nebraska in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Friday.

  29. You never quit,do you? How do you know that the players LIttrell have signed out of the portal are not players that will significantly help? I think thus far that Littrell has played the portal very well. This as usual with the NCAA, will hurt lower tier teams. As the Bigs just grab up more players that would have fallen to G5 level schools. With the max ships staying at 85, what this will do is cause a lot more turnover. As teams jettison players to make room for potentially better transfers. Hopefully, it will accomplish it's real mission, which I believe is to provide more high schoolers with scholarships.

  34. Respectfully, I'm wondering if many of y'all know who this kid was in HS. Him coming to UNT is Mason Fine-esque in one specific category. He has the Texas HS record for most career TDs (195) and passing yards (16,108). I actually saw a ranking recently of the greatest Texas high school QBs of all-time and this kid was in it. All-American second team his senior year. I'm wondering if coming from a catholic private school hurt his recruiting stock (like Fine coming from a small Oklahoma school) but then again, it never hurt Bishop Dunne. Gunnell is also 6'6" so he should look like a man amongst boys at the C-USA level. Time will tell. As for me, I'm excited about football for the first time since Fine.

  35. We heard the same hype about Ruder. We'll see. I hope he's everything as advertised. I still think Aune is the starter day 1.

  39. I know it's easy to put the blame on Littrell and the state of the program but every single school is losing players currently. That is the current state of college sports regardless of the direction of the program. We are pretty much right on par with schools like Bama, Georgia, LSU..do you think the players there see the writing on the wall too? Granted, it's hurts us 10x more than these programs because they can replace those guys with anyone and we can't. But blaming players leaving on the state of the program is just refusing to look at the big picture.
