  1. The 6'3 225 lbs. WR turned LB from Butler Community College committed tonight. Chavez has been visiting North Texas the last two days. Coach Kratch was his man recruiter. Give Coach Kratch and co. for turning over ever rock. This addition gets me excited. Chavez is familiar to the LB position. It was the position he played in HS. He will arrive in Denton on June 3rd with 3 years of eligibility left. North Texas lost alot of production at the LB position. Coach Caponi and Coach Kratch have choosen the Juco route to try to fill that void. North Texas has add Blinn JC LB CJ Garnett as well.

  2. Mason's first action didn't come until the 4th quarter. He opened with an interception but then recovered nicely... "Fine finished the contest 8-for-10 passing for 110 yards with two touchdowns and one interception." https://www.tsn.ca/cfl/saskatchewan-roughriders-rally-to-top-visiting-bc-lions-in-cfl-pre-season-tilt-1.1965936

  5. Jon is not our DC. But we brought in 3 of his disciples. I def think there will be growing pains. The point I was making is the Iowa State defense is not loaded with 5 star talent. Iowa State has not finished better than fifth in the big 12 the last half decade in recruiting. And only came in 5th once. But yet the defense has been near the top in both country and confernce year end and year out.

  7. Iowa state defense has been the best D in big 12 last half decade.. and they haven’t been over ran with 5 star guys. that found guys that fit the system. I’m going to trust them till I’m proven wrong. I don’t think it will be a one year turn around. But using the same tactics they used in building Iowa state defense Kratch and Caponi will get this thing rolling

  8. I agree that we should market the Cal game hard. I just think you could leave off “the first Power Five opponent to visit Denton since 2011.” Something like: UNT will host the Cal Golden Bears of the PAC 12 to open the season This identifies them as a school from a known conference without implying that they and their ilk are superior to us.

  10. it could be a luxury, but I don't really think we "need" any more size than what is already on the roster. looking across our AAC foes and really the entire college basketball landscape, save for maybe the absolute elite programs most everyone is running out at least 3 if not 4 guards around a "center" who really is more of a classic power forward. my assumption on the starting line-up, at least early on, next season: 1. Rubin Jones - 6'5" 190 2. John Buggs III - 6'3" 185 3. Matt Stone - 6'4" 205 4. Aaron Scott - 6'7" 200 (that feels small...he at least plays bigger) 5. Moulaye Sissoko - 6'9" 240 that's plenty of size across the whole floor, especially the way they team defend and team rebound. I anticipate we'll still use a pretty tight 8 man rotation...Allen the Ole Miss transfer is 6'8" 230 and will likely be the primary 4/5 back-up...if Morgan gets his line up to something like 2ppg, 2rpg in 20 appearances, I'll call it a win...Edwards I'm assuming will be the primary bench scorer with Moore growing into a contributing role throughout the season. no clue on Cotton. with all that in place, my priority with the open spots would be an upgrade to Stone at the 3...an experienced tough 6'5"-ish guard who rebounds and shoots 35%+ from 3 and can play some PF in a small line-up. maybe then a wirey 6'7"-ish high school kid...raw with some upside...I think we're looking for one more immediate contributor and an upside project with the final scholarships

  15. Let’s hope this works out better than our last ASU DB transfer. As with most of our recent transfers, I don’t see this as someone expected to come in and start. Many of these seem like depth prices, which is fine.

  16. https://247sports.com/college/arizona-state/Article/Tarik-Luckett-ASU-transfer-portal-Sun-Devils-Ro-Torrence-Macen-Williams-Isaiah-Johnson-208914135/Amp/ Here's more information about his background. Let's give the guy a chance. He started a couple of games at Colorado and played some at Arizona State. The speed of the game shouldn't phase him. He hasn't suited up for us yet, and you're already shitting on him.

  17. I know nothing of any incidences in Stephenville. There wouldn't be any stories about him while he was under 18. BUT my professional training and experience taught me that, like serial killers and pedophiles, Mr. Renfro didn't just wake up one day after turning 18 and moving into this college dorm and decide to start date raping and beating the local females.

  19. While I believe he probably did things that he should/will go to prison for, do y'all believe that 13 girls took money and agreed to NDAs? I'm assuming some of these girls were under 18 and the parents would have agreed to it. As a dad of a daughter there is no way I agree to this, so to find multiple dads/parents is unbelievable to me.

  20. This looks really bad and if proven true, he needs to pay the price. Re: The Tweet by Justis M. trying to make a connection with Art Briles at Stephenville is ridiculous. Briles left Stephenville before Renfro was even born. The fact that they both have a connection to Stephenville is nothing more than a coincidence. Now, the connection to Baby Briles…not saying there’s anything to it, but it’s definitely worth mentioning.

  28. Caponi could just as easily surprise us all & get his defense clicking early… who knows? We need to pump the brakes on both sides. Just because he was on IASt’s staff, doesn’t mean he’s going to have NT playing at that level right away. And just because he’s a 1st-time DC doesn’t mean he’s gonna suck.

  30. Jon Heacock is not out DC though. I get the excitement of newness, & I know your role has kinda morphed over the last year or so to a more diplomatic-type, but please understand the concerns are very valid. When one of the top LBs to wear Green just graduated (the guy that basically kept the defense somewhat respectable almost single-handedly), and you lose your 2nd best LB to the portal, I think it’s completely acceptable to expect some growing pains under a 1st-year DC.

  31. Definitely can't buy "any" player, and would be foolish to blow money on something like Arch Manning. But it should be noted, most of our money was just trying to prevent Sonny Dykes' raids on our roster and stabilize the transition. This season is the first real test of our NIL/transfer strategy

  32. Hmm, I wonder if the DA in Erath County might be thinking of re-reviewing all of those allegations made about Renfro when he was playing for Stephenville. You know, the ones that I'm sure everyone ignored at the time.

  35. Tell that to UTSA fans. They think he's over critical of UTSA. People just love to hate writers because they don't constantly pump up their favorite team. He just predicted us to go 7-5 next year. That's way more optimistic than a lot of people here think.

  36. Maybe NT is not interested or did contact him and there was no interest from him. Per you, there is too much talent in the area; frankly NT or any other school is limited in the number of recruits they can significantly invest in.

  38. The claim itself is absurd. UTSA would do very well in the Sun Belt the same as they have in CUSA the last couple of years. I don't think Craven hates UNT, he's just a massive UTSA homer, and it bleeds into his writing and gets quite annoying. We, as a collective fanbase on Twitter and on GMG, call him out for it all the time and it makes him mad. For all I care he can kick rocks, but DCTF is one of the only outlets that covers UNT on a broader basis (albeit very poorly at times). I don't hate the guy. He just wears his orange and blue on his sleeve, much like we wear green on ours. Problem is he's the lead college writer that is supposed to be unbiased against ALL Texas universities, and he isn't.

  43. Born and raised in Norfolk, Va. Circa 1970, my high school band and orchestra director had once been the band director of Roy Miller HS in Corpus Christi. He told me about North Texas and suggested I apply there, and so I did. I will immodestly say I was accepted to the top East Coast music schools but as North Texas offered me a full ride, it was a no-brainer. For reasons I'll not go into here, the school was, and remains, a very special place to me.
