  1. The wining formula in the G5 leagues is not rocket science but it is easier said than done. You have to recruit well and consistently. If you can do that the rest will fall into place. Take a look at the AAC in football, look at years 2017-2019 in the 247 rankings and you will see the same names at the top, UCF, Cincy, Memphis... This season Tulane found their way to the top 3. Guess what, that wasn't luck. It was a detailed and well executed plan that Coach Willie Fritz and his assistants commandeered and it took several years to come to fruition. Back to basketball, I felt Coach McCasland has always shown a propensity to recruit. This past season was his masterpiece and the irony is he lost one of the best point guards in the country (Ryan Woolridge). Because McCasland can recruit, it allows him to overcome other obstacles. I still think he burns out his teams too quickly during the season and goes overboard on the getting irate on minor issues early on, but that said, he has a real chance to do very well with this team this season. I also think Jalie can recruit however, she has struggled with keeping recruits in the program once they sign. She has also had some injuries. UNT has a great location, good academics and more administrative support than they have ever had in the past. They are slowly but surely addressing the long standing facility issues and can now boast some of the nicer facilities in G5(still need to address the athletic center and lockers etc). I have long stated that more of the budget needs to be appropriated to recruiting specific needs, and I also think that recruiting ability should be one of - if not the top - characteristic in new coaching hires. The portal and transfers should be a HUGE strength for UNT based on location and academics. I also think the walk-on program could be huge here (it has been in the past). I'm into data driven solutions. If we are losing recruiting battles let's figure out what the objections are and address them. Or let's focus on the right recruits that match our profile. Back to the original point, I think what we are seeing in basketball this season is EXACTLY what we should see in all of our programs going forward. GMG
  2. Very valid point -- but it also helps when you are looking for expansion projects to be able to show you are in the black and not running a deficit. I recall a lot of the opponents of Apogee were making a stink about the AD losing money.

  7. MEAN GREEN FOOTBALL Littrell Wraps Up Conference USA’s Top-Rated Class Click here for direct link to player bios DENTON - North Texas added wide receiver Detraveon Brown to its 2020 signing class on Thursday, giving the Mean Green a total of three additions during the February signing period. Brown’s inclusion moved North Texas into the top spot in Conference USA according to 247Sports.com, the Mean Green’s highest-ranked class since the recruiting service started grading classes. The Mean Green inked a trio of recruits, giving North Texas 21 for its 2020 signing class, 11 on the offensive side of the ball and 10 defensive players, all of which are rated 3-star prospects by 247’s Composite ranking system. UNT added Brown from Northwood High School in Shreveport, Louisiana, junior college offensive lineman Teeshaun Turpin and an accomplished edge rusher from Las Vegas, in Jonathan Pickett. The Mean Green exhibited a focus in the trenches in the 2020 class, signing five offensive linemen and five defensive linemen. North Texas is currently No. 1 in Conference USA according to 247 and is among the highest-ranked of the schools from the Group of 5 conferences. This year maintains a significant rise in UNT's recent returns as Littrell continues to build recruiting momentum, with the Mean Green checking in at No. 67 nationally as of Thursday morning. The 2017 class was rated No. 115 in the nation with six 3-star recruits by 247Sports. In 2018, UNT's class was up to No. 102 with 12 3-stars according to 247Sports. ESPN graded none of the UNT recruits in either year as 3-star. In 2019, the Mean Green rose to No. 75 according to 247Sports. 2020 North Texas Signing Class #UNTamed20 High School Signees Name Pos.

  8. Great pickup!! Good work by the coaching staff as he had options.
  9. I am really pleased with this hire. Guys is a good teach and recruiter. Take a look at FAU's line play and you will see what I mean.
  10. Powered by transfers Three junior college transfers in their first season with the Mean Green combined to help destroy the Roadrunners. Hamlet (a guard from Northwest Florida State College) had 22 points and six assists. He hit 8 of 11 from the floor. Forward Thomas Bell III (Kaskaskia College) had a double-double with 11 points and 15 rebounds. Reese (a guard from Odessa College) hit four 3-point shots and scored 18. read more: https://thejbreplay.com/jackson-scores-37-but-north-texas-beats-utsa-98-78
