    I love the way we keep talking about Mason in terms like "lightly regarded" and pretending that Harrell took this raw clay and made a masterpiece. The kid was the two-time Oklahoma player of the year and between his junior and senior high school seasons passed for 9,233 yards and had a touchdown to interception ratio of 124:13. Other than height, this kid was not some scrub unworthy of a chance.

    Mother nature is when your dog drags a deer leg out of the woods to your back door, or even a whole raccoon up into your yard. Mother nature is not getting a pair or trio of dogs riled with a caged animal. Then letting said animal out of cage so you can video a feeding frenzy to get your weird rocks off. It's pretty twisted shit to be honest. The only person or people that would watch this video without at least a trace of 'WTF' going through their minds are either 1) a sociopath 2) a backwoods river rat redneck 3) mixture of both.

    Vito's comment wasn't "lightly regarded", rather it was "lightly recruited".

    I'm personally fine with either one for putting down a raccoon, but I come from a family of ranchers (though I was raised in the city). Once you have the thing in a cage, though, it's inhumane to release it and have dogs attack it. Hell, I'd mostly be concerned for my dogs. Raccoons are tough, and often diseased these days. Even knowing my dogs would kill it, I wouldn't want to risk injury to the dogs for no good reason. It's one thing if the dogs were out at night and came upon a raccoon and attacked it (though even then my goal would be to get the dogs away from it so I could deal with it). This is both cruel and stupid.

    I'm hearing Seth may go younger OC. And just be more involved in offense

    do we know for certain that the dogs didn't fear for their lives after encountering a masked rodent? I think all of these knee-jerk, anti-dog reactions are coming from people who have never lived in the high-stress, high consequences world our dogs live in. And of course no one talks about the hundreds of thousands of good dogs out there that interact and protect rodents on a day-to-day basis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DC_S4ggv93A where's the MSMs coverage of this, huh?

    **** Well, whatever. Onto the next. It will be interesting to see if we do better in the second half of games next year or not.

    While his in-game ability has been questioned on the board (as is the case with every OC in the country), the work he did in building up the young man who will go down as the best QB in our school's history should always be reason for NT fans to appreciate Harrell's time in Denton. Will be rooting for his success. The timing of this may play into our favor as there are several reasons OC gig here should be very appealing to potential candidates: QB position is settled and spectacular Littrell's arrow is pointing up and he proved with KState that he's loyal to his staff Those with HC aspirations may see opportunity to be in position to have a leg up on other replacement candidates if Littrell moves on (as @Wag Tag suggested) I think we all recognize that Littrell has become one of the more well-connected coaches in the game (certainly at the G5 level) and I think he'll have plenty of quality options to choose from.

    Everyone has an opinion, but "I f'in cant stand Racoons" isnt a good reason...Seriously? Dont use the argument that because it's a Racoon, it somehow had this comin... No, I'm not stating this because I love animals. I mean, if some racoon like kicked your ass back in the 5th grade or ate your grandmother, and finally, you feel vindicated, well, I'm happy for you....But my experience with Racoons is that I see them now and again, and they've gotten into my garbage cans. So have numerous dogs and cats in my neighborhood. Kinda pissed me off, but I dont think the dogs, cat, or racoons and the like, deserves to mauled to death after being held captive... And more importantly, the issue isnt about the racoon, people...It's about the player's decision to do this...His decision to film this...And his decision to upload this....You hate racoons? Fine...But the question is, was this a good decision to do, for the team? I'm guessing not or we wouldnt be having this discussion or reading the DRC about it. it's distracting, and shows that someone doesnt think about others before acting....

    Having Applewhite as an OC would be an absolute coup, and a serious upgrade over Harrell.

    Maybe he learns a few things and comes back as the next head coach of UNT. Would be happy for him to learn a few things at a program like that and comes back with some california connections and new wisdom. Congrats and GMG.

    Eric Morris would be awesome if we could somehow get him away from UIW for a coordinator position. That has the potential to basically set up a head coach in waiting.

    Been saying it since day 1 of Wren Baker tenure that CUSA was not the end goal or ceiling for North Texas. We have 200,000 + alumni just in DFW. Perfect location. Huge student body. The big 12 is going to dissolve it's a matter of time. There will be a ton of shuffling. President and Wren goal is to be in the best situation as an athletic department and school as a whole. The new big 12 will look drastically different, the AAC will look drastically different. The p5 could become a p6 who knows. But I can promise you we will be in better shape when that day comes than we have been in the last 50 years. The little private school in Dallas has stopped us before but they may not be able to this time around. If we have a football program bowling each year and sniffing top 25, a basketball program sniffing top 25 and having post season success. The rest of the athletic department rocking and rolling. A student body of 36,000 that is growing each year in numbers and athletic support. North Texas will be very very attractive to a conference. GMG

    In a surprise move, Seth has begun negotiations with Spanky McFarland to fill the rumored-to-be vacant OC position. When contacted for comment, McFarland gave this response... The opening offer was a Charms Blowpop, 49 cents per week, and he is allowed to bring his dog Petey with him to all events.

    BREAKING: North Texas hires the unborn child of Sean McVay as it's offensive coordinator in an unprecedented move

    You've been listening the hell out of financial radio program! At least if he owns a home in Gainesville,TX., the Florida fans won't be angry with him if he leaves next year. I mean, if he were to live in an RV in Gainesville, FL. for a year (also fiscally responsible), that would tell all the fans his heart isn't truly there & they made a mistake in hiring UTSA DL coach.

    Have you seen that poor kid? The Weis family line may end abruptly at Charlie Jr. Scuttlebutt is that Littrell is looking to make the youngest hire ever & hire his own daughter who's firey & loves to watch film.

    I'm just laughing at the fact that USC went from getting Kliff Kingsbury as their OC to now getting Graham Harrell. That's a rather steep drop, IMO.

    It's a GD raccoon. Who ******* cares? ******* soft *** ***********. Seriously though, it's a raccoon. Who cares? They are vermin. EDIT: another thought, what is "animal on animal abuse"? Because that just sounds like mother nature to me.

    The drool coming off good coaches has to be substantial looking at what’s coming back next year. “I can go to Denton and coach Mason Fine?” We will have our choice of OCs

    A 3 point loss is laying a big egg? The real truth (and I grew up in Denton) is that people there attach themselves to whatever is trendy. You get 5 kids in a classroom wearing North Texas gear and talking about how they got VIP treatment at a game...you’ll have 15 classmates sporting green and attending games by the next week. It is an entire town of front runners.

    I’m pretty sure USC OC is not considered a lateral move by anyone in the coaching ranks. Make no mistake. Graham effectively received a promotion. Even if the title is the same.

    Obviously the goal should be to one day be able to hang onto these coaches (however far out that may be), but if the reasons for needing to replace a coach are: 1) they were pretty good and got hired away or 2) were really terrible and had to be replaced, I'll certainly take #1. Best of luck to Coach Harrell and his family. Thank you for your contributions.

    We are at 2,820 for the year total. 3,059 for games against D1 competition. 3,700 per game this calendar year and that is going to continue rising. Could the numbers be better? Sure. But things are trending the right way.

    Gotta imagine he's done. And if he's not, it'll be difficult to cheer him on. It's one thing to use hunting dogs while actually on a hunt. This is obviously different, not to mention grossly idiotic on his part to put on social media.

    Releases from NLIs due to head coaching changes are becoming pretty common now. Not sure about coordinator changes. NCAA COULD SEE RECORD NUMBER OF NLI RELEASE REQUESTS WITH MAJOR COACHES LEAVING THEIR SCHOOLS

    Congratulations to Harrell and his family, I hope he does a great job. As for where I think we turn, Baker and Littrell like successful guys with Oklahoma and Texas ties. Here is my best guess... Tim Albin, the OC at Ohio. He has been very successful at Ohio. Ohio had a better offense then UNT last season, putting up more yardage and points then the Mean Green. Plus the guy is a native of Oklahoma where he graduated from college and served as a head coach, so he understands the players and recruiting. Albin makes about $150,000 a year at Ohio. Harrell was making $275,000. I believe Baker can afford him.
