  1. Speaking as someone who currently has Covid, it is the real thing. It is relentless and EVERY step should be taken to keep it from spreading. If it means we cancel a football game, then we cancel. If you think it isn't real or isn't that bad, then I would guess you probably have not had it.... and I hope you don't.

  2. I'm willing to bet a substantial amount of money that everyone in Green wanted to play. Players, Coaches, AD, everyone. We can accuse the guys of not being very good, but I wouldn't question their heart to play... no matter who's on the other side. If you're insinuating we're using this to get out of the game because the team thought they were going to lose, that's pretty crappy.

  3. "Contact tracing" and quarantining the folks that have come in contact with those 4 positives will wipe out at least a whole position unit, if not an entire side of the ball.

  5. Good article. https://247sports.com/college/north-texas/LongFormArticle/Ten-takeaways-from-North-Texas-Mean-Green-footballs-loss-to-SMU-Mustangs-151748989/#151748989_9 I have been hesitant to comment other than a post in another thread, but here are my thoughts if anyone cares. 1. Our 20 starters, not including the kicking game, included 1 RFr, 9 So or RSo, 4 Jr or RJ and 8 Sr or RSr. Included in the Sr. class was Torrey who played less than Adaway (RFr), Pirtle who was less productive than Roberts (Fr), and Howell who was a converted HB and started at LB considering the major

  6. I am a middle school teacher. I got it the first week students came back on campus face to face. I had morning cafeteria duty the first day students came back. I had to tell the kids over and over to wear the mask over their nose too or to pull it up. It was a constant issue telling them to wear the mask in the classroom (they want to take it off at their seats). I had afternoon bus duty that same day. It was a mask free zone when they were waiting on their parents - not because we allowed it, but they would not listen. I tested positive at the end of the week. I have not been b

  7. SO I went back to 247's recruiting rankings over the last 4 classes and see something positive. IN 2017, SMU ranked 80th overall, we ranked 115th. IN 2018, SMU ranked 87th overall, we ranked 101st. In 2019, SMU ranked 68th, we ranked 75th. In 2020, SMU ranked 70th, we ranked 68th. If we can develop kids from these last two classes into something credible, we can close the gap with SMU--unless they get infused again with more P5 talent that wants to play and get a degree from SMU, like Buechele has done.

  9. I had it way back in early march (moderate case, no hospitalization needed). The fever lasted over 2 weeks. The health department would not clear me to leave the house for over 2 months because of existing cough. Of course, this was the very beginning of the outbreak. So, maybe they were being overly cautious then. I would say that it took me about 5 months to get back to completely normal. Up until Covid, I hadn't been sick in about 15 years. In the 3 months right after Covid, I came down with 2 stomach viruses and also an MRSA infection. In other words, Covid seems to have

  11. So! They've pinpointed the problem? Well, so have I. 1. Our defense gets run around, past, and most sadly OVER by a 184 lb running back. 2. Our defense (most notably our blitzing linebacker) thinks that playing bumper body without bothering to put your arms around the SMU QB should be sufficient to bring him down. They also thought that about the aforementioned RB. 3. Our defense thinks that late hitting and drawing 15 yrd penalties is a great idea.

  12. I work in a very large medical organization with a very at risk population and can testify to the spikes in mortality rates. It is a very real issue that we are simply lucky isn't deadlier. But still deadly. Yes it can be a political weapon. But at its root it is not a weapon. Every life we can save is worth it. Sorry to get serious on it. I have just seen how serious it can be

  13. Only at UNT would a coach 3 games over 500 after 4 years would be considered doing an incredible job. Sonny Dykes at SMU has done an incredible job, not Littrell.

  14. With Raheem Mostert out several weeks with a sprained MCL, and Tevin Coleman out even longer (they put him on IR), the 9'ers backfield is down to Jerrick McKinnon & our boy Jeff! https://www.sfgate.com/49ers/article/Jerick-McKinnon-Jeff-Wilson-are-now-49ers-lead-15584876.php "The next man up is 24-year-old Jeff Wilson, who has two carries and three catches this season. He's had a bit role with the 49ers since 2018, but could actually get the most action this coming Sunday." Looks like they plan to use Jeff as an early-down back and McKinnon as a 3rd down guy. Here's the opp

  15. I really think people are overlooking how good our offense is. Take away those 5 drives in the first half trying to get Bean’s confidence up, give those to Aune to get settled in quicker and we probably put a lot more pressure on SMU’s offense. We were a yard away from 42 points, and the points we did score were on SMU’s starters. We’re going to score points, and our defense is not going to be that bad again (it better not be). The 2017 defense took similar lumps against SMU and FAU and they ended up at least good enough for our offense to outscore opponents most games, then became a goo

  20. Is there any member of our staff as valuable as Walerius? And yes, I'm including Littrell in that. Our recruiting is truly night and day since he's joined the staff, let's hope we can keep him around as long as possible.

  22. In 2017 they were ranked 35 spots ahead of us. In 2018 the gap closed to 14 spots. In 2019 the gap closed to 7 spots. In 2020 we were ahead of them by 2 spots. Far be it from me to speak for the OP, but I suspect this is what he meant when he said “close the gap.”

  24. Pretty interesting pickup here that has really flown under the radar. Davis was listed in the 2-deep this week behind Cam Johnson and saw some action this past Saturday. Davis is a transfer from Texas Tech, and former Euless Trinity Trojan, who was recently added to our roster. Below is his recruiting profile from when he signed with Texas Tech out of high school. Was primarily a special teams player at Tech but this is another P5 transfer for those asking for more of those. 4th P5 Transfer since this summer with the others being QB Amani Gilmore from Kentucky, DB Jordan Rucker from Purdu

  27. Does anyone chuckle at people with unrealistic expectations? "Hey, great job North Texas! You went 10-1 ... but you had a bad game against SMU. Littrell ... you're fired. Let's get an all new-coaching staff in here and rebuild this thing in 3 to 4 years with their new philosophy". So it sounds like you'll only be happy if we go undefeated every year? Pretty tough bar to clear. My advice would be to buy a lot of TUMS because we're not going 10-1. In a related note, I'm assuming you picked UNT to go 11-0 in Brett Vito's "get your rear on the record" contest or whatever he calls it?

  28. Every time we talk about SMU’s roster it always gets brought up how much they are bolstered by P5 transfers. They started 2 P5 transfers on offense and 4 on defense. While that is a decent amount, you would think half their starting lineup is made up of P5 transfers. It’s not. They have recruited very well at the high school and JUCO level, and have supplemented those signees with P5 transfers. Not the other way around. This is something we are starting to do more of with bringing in 3 P5 transfers over the last few months. Like Jim showed, we started off recruiting very poorly und

  29. Where the heck is all this Selfless, Tough and Disiplined Seth preaches every week? Is selfless celebrating when your down 20? Is tough allowing a QB to get past 3 defenders behind the line and convert 4th down?? Is disiplined allowing 10 false start penalties??? I am getting sick and tired of hearing this phrase because i haven't seen any of the qualties since at least the 2018 team. How about Selfish, Soft and Undisiplined... at least that would tell the damn truth.

  31. SMU and Houston kicked our ass last year and it didn’t hurt recruiting. Also don’t think those losses hurting team morale is what lost us those games the rest of the way. Get the experience, have more on-field time together to click, and win some conference games and recruiting would keep going just fine imo. Also, I’m not very worried about recruiting right now. I’m more concerned on how we develop the guys we have, because it’s hard to imagine recruiting getting much better than it’s been the last two years. Until we start winning the conference and pushing into the top 25, we have recr

  36. Hey - we lost to Portland state before Littrell came to this school - We are young with no spring ball - we are trying to see who should be starting and who can play this game - I promise we will be much better as the season progresses - if we go backwards then I agree maybe we need a new coach but I promise you that is not going to happen -. However , next week is going to be horrible - Houston has everyone back and we are still trying to figure out who can play . I think Aune has the better arm especially with the deep ball - Bean is faster - Aune has better presence and keeps his emotions u

  38. My thoughts.... a. Driving to Denton, I saw this billboard, and it of course- steamed me pretty bad.. b. After the game - I had to laugh...Well done SMU. I hate to admit it, but we TOTALLY deserved that. But something to to chew on....Many of us on have heard for years, have heard how "SMU doesn't consider us a real team (I know I know, don't leave, read all of this...) and that this game means nothing to them, and in NO WAY do THEY consider it important or a Rivalry....", right? Look at both images again.....CLEARLY,UNDENIABLY, they do...And, they're winning it, easily.

  43. Lot of good stuff here and I agree with just about all of it. As for the the blitzing, I hate how reliant on blitzing we are. You talk about the 4-man fronts later, but man it would be nice to have two good ends putting pressure on the tackles every time the other team passes, rather than hoping a blitz hits home when it hasn’t been. When I played offensive line I would prefer a blitzing linebacker to a good passing rushing defensive lineman almost every time. I don’t know if it’s that Littrell is very big on playing older players or if it’s that the older guys truly are better, but I
