  1. He's well ahead with the recovery process. Has been running routes and working with some coaches and QBs since Jan.

  3. Guys our sack leader had 4.5 sacks last season, the next highest was 3. He bends the corner, dips and gets leverage on the tackle better than most of our defensive ends do. If that's his only trick and he plays on 3rd downs while McCrae slides inside he will contribute a lot. We didn't sign a single high school DE in 18, signed two in 19 (Walker, Dotson) who were already passed for playing time by the class of 20 signees Rausaw and Pickett. In my opinion this is a lot better than signing JUCO guys who were just big bodies expected to hold up against the run like Frow, Sa'afi, McMillan, an

  4. Looks like Bennett is going after guys who have proven they can play at the D1 level, rather than P5 guys who have been backups and are looking for playing time. Tyrae Thornton started at Rice, Kameron Hill was a multi-year starter at the FCS level, and Jason Simmons (another transfer offer we have out) started at Safety as a true freshman at New Mexico State in 2019. We aren’t going to get P5 starters, so that’s typically what you can get. Either P5 backups who don’t have playing experience and the most recent tape you really have is high school, or guys who you actually have seen can pl

  6. I don't care if he wasn't rated, and is maybe undersized at his position, but we NEED the depth. I'm hoping we can get more of a depth in the front 7, and do what SMU and UH do where they do almost a complete rotation. We never really do that because we never have the depth and talent at that area. Welcome, Kameron!

  9. Steps up on his soapbox: Kids with talent are coddled and made to feel special because of their athletic ability and it starts at a young age. They build a mentality over the years that they are going pro and don't need to worry about grades, classes, etc... and they are pushed through the system. There are a lot of great high school coaches out there that lived that life and realize it only comes true for very few and they preach the importance of hitting the books and applying themselves in the classroom as well as on the playing field, but many of these kids don't listen. Then we ru

  10. Tony’s basketball career was his own to make or break in, but it’s a shame we don’t do more to set our student athletes up for success after their playing careers are over. Of the football and basketball alums I know or follow on SM, some become coaches, but outside of that very few actually go into a job field that requires a degree. Many are encouraged to go towards integrative studies (general studies) or other degrees that help them focus on athletics, which just doesn’t open up many doors for them after graduation. Long story short, from what I see it just feels like so many of

  11. If he's anything like the last transfer we got from ACU, I'll be thrilled. The 2 years he was here, Riley Mayfield was arguably (along with Elex) the best OL we had. Welcome aboard Kameron!

  12. Even if it was a 3-year deal, so what? If that is what it took to pull in Bennett then so be it. We finally grabbed a real name, somebody with some skins on the wall, someone many would say is out of our league and folks are still finding things to complain about.

  13. There was a lot of doom and gloom a month or so ago about the transfers. We really only ended up losing one starter to the portal on offense and defense combined, and that was Cam Johnson.

  14. This FB posting is very sad. I used to travel quite a bit as I commuted to my job in NYC from Durham. I was typically dressed in a suit when traveling and each time I passed the shoeshine stand at the RDU airport, a young man would call out to me to get my shoes shined. Shining my own shoes was something I enjoyed but I felt like I should support this man who obviously needed the business. Over the course of a year or two, I got to know him rather well and it turned out that he was a two year starter at the University of Alabama. He told me he was injured towards the end of his sen

  16. Are you talking a real live eagle ? Many years ago, on the site where now there is the “UNT “ sign on I-35, sat the clubhouse to the North Texas Golf Course, later called Eagle Point Golf Course. When I was in jr high and high school, I went to billions of dances in said clubhouse. Between the parking lot and the Interstate, there was a cage, I’m told, used to house a live Eagle. I don’t recall ever seeing a bird there, but I certainly remember the very large cage. I for one, appreciate Plummeangreen’s frequent and sometime wacky posts. He is a great fan and

  21. Something about a Gary DeLoach defense brought out the best in some pretty amazing linebackers in his time here. Tobe & Craig were quite a duo in 2008-2009. Really glad to see the positive impact his music is making. He can flow, but it's not the cliche money/hoes/clothes rapping. It's so much better.

  23. I’ve posted this before, but it felt pretty clear to me that Aune won the long game over Bean based on Littrell’s comments and how things ended. I don’t think Bean was shooed out, but I also don’t think the coaches were spending time late at night hoping he would stay either. Siggers did hurt, but he wasn’t a starter. Maybe he would’ve been in 2021, but he wasn’t in 2020.

  25. There are specific degrees called multiplinary disciplinary degrees (different names at different schools), they are not education degrees or other targeted disciplines. Might want to understand what they are before you try and equate them to an education degree.

  29. I’m interested to see where Bennett puts Rausaw and Pickett. Rausaw was playing nose last year after coming in at 6’3” 275 and Pickett was playing 3-tech at 6’3” 270. Looking at Baylor film it looks like most of the time they have a 1-tech DT and a 3-tech DT. Where they were currently, they would be more inside unless Bennett has plans to trim them down a little and move them back outside.

  30. So today’s my birthday. I opened my email and saw an email from UNT congratulating me and giving me a 10% coupon for merchandise and free shipping. I think “I’d like a new hat and shirt.” Pick what I want and start online checkout. Enter my code and get a message that the code is invalid. Really!!! Just mean(green)...

  31. I was looking forward to these two games and hoping for a split. We had that game won last year if Tayveion hits his free throws at the end and he’s been an 80% plus guy from the line since he’s been here. We have a pretty good squad this year. Bassey is legit legit. His freshman year he really wasn’t. He had good numbers but he wasn’t going to get drafted high so came back. He was playing pretty well until he broke his knee. I honestly (being a lifelong Western fan that expects the worst) didn’t expect much out of him this year being 9 months removed from major surgery. He

  36. Him being back is evidence that he didn’t burn his bridges. It’s incomplete data. It’s only February, and the season doesn’t start until August. But whatever number it is, it’s going to be skewed by all seniors getting an extra season of eligibility. There’s a whole extra class of athletes with eligibility next season than there usually are.

  37. It likely has to do with how many bridges he burned on his way out the door. Someone posted on GMG that 70% (+-) of athletes that enter the portal don’t get a call. Sometimes the greenest grass is Mean Green.
