    I just dont see Litrell going back to Texas Tech. He is a big suporter of Leach and a Leach disciple. The way Tech ran Leach out on a rail was wrong and disrepectful, and i dont believe Litrell would go there out of respect for Leach.

    That would be ideal. If we can bring both basketball programs up because Soccer is already there, then maybe the Big 12 makes us an offer and cans that mess down in Waco.

    Wouldn't it just be awesome if UNT went to Arkansas, and gave him a shot with a few seconds left and he kicks the game winner? If that happens, then I want somebody to make and post a video of the reaction of the person who posted this video

    My two cents.....he'll wait for one of the two Oklahoma jobs to open up. Why drag your family to west Texas. Hopefully, he has his ego in check.

    Hopefully Littrell can take UNT to the highest level and accomplish both. Just keep winning. Be the Gary Patterson of UNT.

    IMHO, Seth Littrell will not be leaving North Texas for some other gig, especially a dump like Tx Tech. Here are my thoughts. Some people are forgetting Home Boy is the HFC at Tech. Home Boy shows any improvement he will stay another year or longer. All the sports talking heads are trying to come up with news stories daily stating Seth Littrell will not staying at North Texas which is their big news. I have seen the same story probably 50,000 times, this year alone! Towards the end of the season, the same crap story will feed the sports talking heads with more fodder for their sports reporting. Seth Littrell has what all coaches want - an administration that supports all athletic programs, the University President that supports the coaches and their work, and a AD that is developing all North Texas athletics! Salary is not always the number on factor. Look at Frank Solich at Ohio- he is still working at Ohio and has a great team every year. Solich has turned down better offers. Solich likes where he is at! I believe Seth Littrell likes where he is at, and likes what he is doing for North Texas. Seth Littrell will be at North Texas for a long time to come! So stop with the speculation that Littrell will leave North Texas. Littrell knows what he is doing and he can see that North Texas is a very good gig to have!

    That, and previous stories like it, is a VERY tough read! Every time I see an article like that, I want to ignore it...but I can't. A song starts to play in my head and I am reminded of the words of the immortal Etta James..."I would rather go blind, boy, than to watch you walk away from me." 😞

    This is a relief. I am glad that he is not a Red.

    I didn't say anything about anyone's opinion or point of view. I didn't say anything about UTA's attendance. As far as your comment, "The argument is not about gate revenue"... Personally, I agree that we're probably not ready for baseball. But the argument going on here about ticket revenue is not that relevant to UNT sports.

    Just when I was beginning to have some confidence in the recruiting ratings, I began to scrutinize the figures assigned to our offensive line. Either we recruited some very mediocre linemen or the rating gurus don't give o-linemen any respect. Our only 3-star lineman is the former starting center Creighton Barr. He checked in at .8080. There was only one .79; former starting tackle Jordan Murray at .7905. Three were given marks in the .78s: newcomer Daizion Carroll leads with .7892. Backup backup center Dakoda Newman comes in next at .7824 and Cole Brown follows at .7803. The largest group given ratings were the .77s. Jacob Brammer was rated at .7790; Chandler Anthony .7750; Brian Parish .7709; followed by projected starters Thomas Preston III and Sosaia Mose at .7700. Two in the .76s were Jordan Redfearn and projected starter Manase Mose. Redfearn was rated .7691 and Mose .7642. In the last rated group were Jevin Pahunui at .7483 and arguably our best lineman...Elex Woodworth received a rating of .7481. The three remaining all transferred from a four year institution and thus did not receive a rating. One was the remaining starter Riley Mayfield and squadmen Ted Fausak and Chad Hickson. Edit: I inadvertantly left off Brendon Weatherspoon from the list. I found that he was given a rating of .7750...the same as Chandler Anthony and about the middle of the pack. That, in fact, is better than the average of the starters (.7631).

    They are going to be tough. I just wonder if Kiffin is on the up and up when it comes to recruiting. He sure grabbed a lot of P5 retreads that had problems resulting in them leaving their respective programs.

    While we all hope Seth will stay for a long time the reality of the "business" is that coaches move on in many cases. If he does I would hate it, but be thankful to him for answering the question "Why not NT"? I am confident that Wren will have his "list" ready and if it's in the cards have one of the current assistants ready to step in.

    I'm with you. He was the best I've seen in a long time...maybe ever. I never worried when the game was on the line and the offense got him a reasonable shot. Very cool and focused under pressure.

    Texas Tech is a good job that pays well, with fan and university support. If offered Littrell should take it.

    I certainly hope that you are right. My only concern with the Solich analogy is that Solich did coach at Nebraska when they were in the Big 12 right after Tom Osborne retired so he has tried his hand in the P5. Littrell has yet to be a HFC at the P5 level, I just often think that maybe in the back of his mind, he wants to prove he can win at the highest level of college football. You are right when you say it is not all about money, but most of these guys have big egos and that is what drives them to prove that they can win at the highest level. Otherwise, college coaches would not jump ship to the NFL when they are making just as much or more money at the collegiate level. They go to the NFL to prove they can win at the elite level. If they fail, they run back to college. Nick Saban, Chip Kelly, Steve Spurrier, and Bobby Petrino come to mind.

    Looks like he’s been shooting the ball well from deep. Pretty efficient play, and a great experience for him. This dude is a tailor made stretch 4, and might be the biggest wildcard on the team

    If coach Littrell has the season we expect him to have the Red Raiders will have to get in line as everyone is going to be knocking on his door.

    What can be done to encourage potential immigrants to pursue legal channels to enter the country? Answer that question, and other related issues will be largely resolved. Ignore that question, and everything else will continue to get worse.

    Do you watch the college World Series or the softball championship? They could at least break even with the right effort. I live in west Texas and Tech baseball is hugely popular.

    My hope is our guys are fired up enough after getting their asses handed to them twice to take them down. Hell I'd even take a close loss lol I just don't want some 55-10 nonsense happening in Apogee.

    They may not be rated highly, but I trust this staff will get it right and get what we need regardless of how many stars they have. Murray was recruited by Mac and he has more stars than Woodworth, but he is not hardly as good as Elex is. Long story short, trust the SL process. We are seeing results on the field and in a short time. As long as they continue to win, I wouldn't give a damn if they were rated zero stars.

    I"d love to counter point this article but FAU is going to a tough squad. But a key injury or quarterback struggles could change things.

    I think that getting ratings right is probably harder for the O-line than pretty much any other position. Given that O-linemen don't collect any stats and one does not always know what their exact assignment on a given play is, given that opposition quality usually differs more on the lines than any other position between different high school classifications, I feel size and high school of origin is never more overvalued in the rankings than there. And yet it is obvious do you do need size at that position. That said, there really is not much to argue that UNT recruited all that great at OL the past seasons. p.s.might it be that overall, there are less highly rated OLs than there should be given how every team is starting 5 each game?

    In Tech's case, as hinted in the article, they will want him and Filani as well. And they are probably not the only school that would want the whole package, thereby gutting us and bombing us back to the Stone Age.

    Then I suppose basketball has different rules? Every NCAA presentation I've seen says they can't do that.

    This is a dumb argument. You do know that no sports at UNT break even via ticket sales, right?

    UTA averaged 108 fans per home game for 26 games for total of 2,800 for the season. At $5.00 a head that's $14,000.00 for the season.I have no reason to think UNT would do better.

    Trevor was a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of player and leaves big shoes to fill. From all I have read since Cole announced his transfer, he has the potential to step into those shoes. Lets get behind him. Would it be against NCAA rules for us to fund for Cole the same icewater IVs Trevor used?

    I can feel your passion for UNT football recruiting. It’s actually refreshing reading articles by someone based on interest; instead of it being their job. Thanks for being a fan first.

    conspiracy theories borne from nothing but his skin color and funny name, not a history of bankruptcies, failed businesses and a penchant for inflating considerably his personal wealth. not to mention it has been a, usually as little more than placating window-dressing, a concession made by all presidential candidates for 50 years. but ok. I found an article dated 4/27/2011 entitled "Obama releases long-form birth certificate"...assuming that is the correct date, by my math that is 807 days into his presidency. it is day 537 of the Trump presidency, so he has 270 days to square things and you get to maintain intellectual consistency. I'll be sure to set an alert

    He has the best words and one of the best brains of any president. Highest IQ. Like when his uncle (John) told him about "nuclear" and Trump knew it was going to be something one day. Amazing brain to know that something we developed and used before his birth was going to be something one day..

    I am not factoring in the cost of a facility, just the yearly cost to run the program. Do we factor in the cost of Apogee when talking about football?

    I would argue that baseball could easily become a revenue producing sport, as could softball, with success and the proper marketing.

    The last thing we need is another non revenue producing sport with a big capital expense for a stadium. Regarding men's soccer, we had a great program, basically cancelled it on Friday, and added a women's soccer program on Monday.
