  2. If this is true, I genuinely wish him the best. He was no longer the answer for moving us forward, but he was a good man and I thank him for his efforts while here.

  3. SL seemed like all class. I hope he finds success somewhere. Sad it wasn't here because I'd rather our HC have a Gary Patterson or Nick Saban type of tenure but it is what it is. There were good times in all this that won't be forgotten.

  4. I shit on Seth the past 2 yrs but he turned this dumpster fire into a very desirable job. Thank you Seth. I wish him all the best. Good/ great offensive mind. Qb is his downfall

  7. He should be commended for how clean of a program he ran but he just couldn't get us over the hump. Can't wait to see who we hire, we really need to move quickly which is tough without an AD.

  8. Seth was kind of like RV. Took over a 💩 show, made huge advancements, but took it as far as he could. Time to hand off the baton.

  9. While he did a lot to elevate the program, this was 100% the right move!

  10. Seth did a lot of good and elevated us to a program that is no longer satisfied to just get to bowls. In a way, his success partially caused his failure if that makes sense...

  12. 2019: 4-8 2020: 4-6 2021: 6-7 2022: 7-6 We’re 1 loss away from 4th straight seasons of non-winning football. That should be unacceptable for any FBS program.

  15. It's not about cause; it's about accountability and leadership. Art Briles never told any of his players to go out and get some. Art Briles didn't supervise battery, rapes, or sexual assaults. Art Briles, as head coach of the Baylor Bears, oversaw the recruiting of these players and was leading the program at the time they committed these crimes. There was extensive documentation of why Art Briles was fired, and it all boils down to this: a loss of institutional control. That loss of institutional control started was centered on the football team but more broadly included the former AD, now Liberty's AD, Ian McCaw and the former Chancellor and President of the university Ken Starr. If you'd like to read the summary of the Pepper Hamilton report, it's here: https://www.baylor.edu/thefacts/doc.php/266596.pdf A head coach in any sport at any level is responsible for their team and accountable for their team's culture. That's exceptionally true of FBS football programs. A head coach isn't only responsible for what goes on in between the lines on Saturdays; they're also responsible for the attitude and culture around the team off the field. It's chasing success at all costs in the former that led to a toxic disaster in the latter. If you're in public university leadership, you simply cannot bring a person with that kind of record into the fold. Hiring someone with that background opens the athletics program and the university at large up a whole elective dimension of institutional risk. My feeling about Briles as a coach is that if he wasn't going to get a shot at Liberty, it's never going to happen. The set up there was the most ideal setup in FBS college football for him: a small, culturally-conservative school coming off a successful run with another former FBS college football coach with ample personal baggage of his own and the presence of the former Baylor AD who hired him at Baylor and should, in principle, know him better than just about anyone. From everything I've read, Briles was never seriously considered. If the guy who hired you at Baylor won't hire you again at an institution that's practically tailored for you, that sends a quiet but profound message to the rest of the college football world about you.

  16. Instead of flying back home after my finals, I told my dad to come drive down to watch the game with me and then drive back home together afterwards. I know student attendance will be relatively limited, but a bowl game is a bowl game and I figured I'd try to boost student attendance as much as possible. I've got 4 friends already that are going to the game with me! GMG

  17. It’s bittersweet to me because those first 3 seasons were some of my favorite Mean Green Football memories. He’s a great guy. Great family. I wish him nothing but the best & I genuinely hope he finds the spark that makes football fun for him again somewhere.

  18. Come on Leadership, make the right decision. Littrell cannot be allowed to coach this game. Rip the bandaid off now so we can start moving in the right direction ASAP. Let Bloesch coach the bowl game.

  19. Pre UNLV I was open to this, post UNLV I was 100% pro this, post actual firing I finally feel like mourning this bc there have been so many great things and he’s not the kind of Jimbo horn tooting guy to take credit and we rarely gave it to him so I hope we can finally let go of grudges and pay him respects. Time for something else but damn I appreciate the good times eg The Drive, Fayetteville, a couple CCG appearances, making bowl games, the early times were more fun than the later but between COVID bullshit and general Grace, I find it easy to feel a deep appreciation. Hopefully he will be an ambassador in the future and show up to celebrate anniversaries. He deserves to.

  26. Maybe SL has lost focus on the football program because he's an undercover basketball coach? SL is the face of the program, the snakes head. He's not the select one, but the only one. Also, let's be real, college aged students aren't really adults. But I'm damn glad they're voicing their opinion. And let me tell you, whatever was said is bubble wrap compared what would be said at big boy pants programs.

  27. I totally agree. He’s set the single-season TD record & people are crapping all over him like he’s J Greer.

  28. None of the criticism was being directed towards Neal. We actually were all having a great time with him and he even took a couple photos with us. I feel it's safe to say the students really don't have anything major against him. He's the leader of pretty much everything UNT and it's his literal job to make decisions that drastically affect the program. It was definitely not a "screw you Neal" kinda thing... It was more of a "cmon Neal do the right thing"

  32. Very good point. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone here who is not appreciative of what he has done here. Thank you for everything Seth! Wish you and your family the best!

  33. I think we need to bring in both Briles to get this thing going in the right direction. Throw in an old school Buddy Ryan type defense coordinator and I’ll be happy.

  36. Confused by the "economical hire" deal but he looks like a good candidate based off record. I know nothing about him otherwise. Honestly, I'll be excited for any change. You could sell me anybody but SL right now.

  38. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I missed the game in Frisco last year to surgery. I’m taking my kids and will have a house full in town for the game. I live walking distance to the stadium. Gonna have a blast.
