    After all the turnover over this off season could the Mean Green Coaching staff actually be improved? I think it is no ta contest the staff is improved by miles on the recruiting side. But argument could be mad the Xs and Os part is improved as well. For those living under a rock lets recap OC Graham Harrell to USC = OC Bodie Reeder Bodie come to UNT after leading Eastern Washington to a top 3 offense in FCS and a trip to the FCS National Championship game. Expect the Mean Green offense to move a lot faster next year. It will have a Briles effect. RB Tashard Choice to Georgia Tech = RB Patrick Cobbs I think this is one of the most underrated additions of the offseason. Choice was a fan favorite and a player favorite. But bringing UNT hall of famer back to coach running back is huge. He brings NFL experience and TXHSFB ties. If you have ever talked to Cobbs you can't overlook his passion for UNT. He can sell UNT better than anyone. "I came to UNT and played on Sundays" WR Joel Filani to Texas Tech = TE Adrian Mayes Adrian is the youngest of the new staff but he has already made a huge impact in the recruiting category during his time at Texas State. He also coached TE Keenan Brown who is set to be drafted in April. Look for TE to be more involved in the fall. CB Nate Brown = CB Clay Jennings Coach Jennings comes from Texas Tech. Coach Jennings another North Texas Alum headed back home.You coulld make the arguement that Jennings has been the best DB coach and recruiter in the region the last decade. He has mad stops at TCU, Arkansas, Houston and Texas Tech. He has recruited and coached several that are still playing on Sundays. LB Jeff Koonz to Ole Miss = LB Galen Scott Yes Coach Scott got in to some hot water due to infidelity. But on the football field and in recruiting he was a rising star. He was Co-DC at Memphis before being names Co-DC at Virginia Tech. He resigned to get things right with his family and for a fresh start. But to be named Co-DC with Bud Foster is an honor within itself. I am all for him getting a second chance. Reffett was with Scott at Memphis so if Reff willl vouch for him I am good with it. Offensive Quality Control John David Baker to USC = QC Tommy Mangino I think bringing in the former Big 12 WR coach and SEC QC coach is a huge upgrade. He brings experience and pedigree. I also want to throw it out there that the 4 coaches Seth was able to hang on to could be argued they are the most important to keep. Yellock and Langston can continue to develop the lines on both side of the ball. and Seth keeps both his right hand men in Mainord and Reffett. Out of the 4 assistants that left for P5 gigs all left to go back home besides Graham who go the brinks truck backed up at his house. He is making over a million next season.

    The epitome of a fair weather fan's response. A very disappointing conference season, but there is always hope until it is over. If I had only went to watch good NT teams, I would have missed a lot of great ball games.

    There were four guards named to the first team and Bassey was selected at center, the game has changed. Secondly no way Woolridge will make the first team with a career 56% free throw percentage and averaging 12 points a game...C’mon man let’s get real 🤨

    And the Democratic Party is dumb enough to let her be the mouthpiece of the party along with basically ignoring Omar, the D-Gov of Virginia, his Attorney General and the third in line’s racism and sexism. Funny how they march, protest, accost, yell, scream, etc... when it is someone like Kavanaugh from the Right but sweep this away all with the benefit of the mainstream media when it is one of their own.

    A bit of the same. However - this is the first time in a long time that I think the positive effect of our new admin and coaching salaries really shows. It was impressive last year that the entire group held firm and carried into year three. This time around, our first real brush with the "successful G5 paradigm", we can honestly say we may have maintained the quality or upgraded at each position hire. Additionally, it shows that Coach Littrell is not afraid to change up the formula a bit that got him here, evolving with the times and bringing on a slightly different offensive scheme in Reeder/Mayes. The only thing that is truly concerning to me is the line play (always). Coaches Yellock and Langston are now at the point to show whether their development of their first couple recruiting classes will actually play out well, or were the glaring issues we all (and especially Mason) suffered institutionalized. Can't wait to find out, though.

    Congratulations to former UNT guard Jerome Rogers whose son, Jerome Jr., (Soph) won a State Championship today with Dallas Madison and captured Tournament MVP honors. Daughter, Endyia, won the TAPPS State Championship as well at Bishop Lynch and was selected 2019 Player of the year in Texas girls basketball. Headed to USC in the fall. Jerome Sr also won a State Championship at Dallas Madison his senior year.

    That is very interesting data, and the spike correlates roughly to my lifespan. Do you suppose I am too flatulent? 🙂 Seriously, it is obvious that something has changed dramatically. I am not a scientist, but my first thought was that to have that much impact there must be multiple causes and factors at play here. Factors that are natural and factors that are man-made. I don't pretend to profess what they all are, but I can think of a few to check out for possible inclusion into the equation. Examples might be geologic causes, population growth, destruction of forests and other natural sources of oxygen and users of CO2, animal populations (not just cows fart; take a horse-and-buggy ride), etc. I try to be conscious of my own actions but this problem is a global problem. I believe we should do our best and let the rest of the world regulate and police themselves. There is no sense in economically destroying this country when we are such a minor part of the problem. Just my opinion.

    Usually when your staff gets raided, there is a real basis for concern. I believe this group of replacements could be an upgrade, which is unusual. I am of the opinion that NT's offensive numbers are more a function of Fine than those that coach him.

    Not too excited Langston remains. Out of the new hires, I’m supremely confident in the upgrade at CBs. I feel good about OC, and I’m up-in-the-air about the rest. Hard to assess the moving pieces around WRs/TEs/QCs since their roles all morphed & we don’t really know what those changes will bring. And I’m not sure about Choice/Cobbs (just because of how great Choice was), or Koonz/Scott (just because of how good Koonz was/will be).

    "Judge not, that you be not judged" Matthew 7:1 if this conversation held any truth, you would talk about the athletes he has recruited.

    Greatness of these hires is you can definitely see promotion in their futures. It might be an OC or DC and in some cases a Head Coaching job! Youth and being s strong recruiter makes the future very exciting! GMG

    😮, Tony will show us all we were wrong about him. He will win a game in the SEC tournament and LSU will make him the new head basketball coach. He has to clean up where ever JJ has been. Look what he did for us after JJ.

    Creating a higher level of college competition would kill other programs not help them. Who won the national FCS championship last year, you may know; but I and most of America do not. NT playing in 1aa was a disaster for the program that took years to recover from.

    And deserves credit for not having recruited a single D1 level QB during the McCarney years. And for 15 points per game in 2015.

    None of the other QB’s on the bench that I can think of ever went somewhere else and flourished. So I’d say no,... the system under Canales wasn’t over complicated. During Canales’ time here he helped produce 20 All Conference selections, an NFL running back and (two?) NFL O linemen and won a bowl game with a record setting QB. So he did a little of something right. Rick

    I don't know anything about coaching basketball and maybe so one on here is and can answer this question. We seem to run the clock down many times in the game only to end up taking a bad shot. I have seen it too often this season. Won't it be better to work for an open shot no matter if the clock at 29 seconds or 10 seconds? We seem to sit at the top of the key killing the clock and run it down to nothing and we force our shots.

    I think the group of people that thought we were actually elite or one of the best 25 teams in the country was very small. We did, however have a chance to boost our profile by getting into the top 25 based on a good record even against weak competition. So from that perspective it was a wasted opportunity. Other than that this team seems to be pretty much what the majority thought it was, especially when the injuries happened. An average CUSA team when the full resume is taken into account.

    Two quick points: The guy made about $60,000 last year - so we are getting a steal financially His recruiting area is DFW - so he already knows the area well A+ on the hire!!

    Very nice hire. He was in charge of recruiting DFW for EWU. So he should have relationships with area coaches.
