  1. I did too however, here's the problem as my compadre stated last night. Could our offensive line be as good as it was last season? Sure. Getting Mayfield back helps that cause for sure. What are the real chances it would be better though? Mose is working his way back into the rotation sure but will he be 100%? IE what additions or development players will make the line better? Could the scheme be improved? Is moving big boy back to guard going to work better? Is Jacob Brammer going to make a huge difference in his first season on the field. There are a lot of question marks.
  2. I had this discussion with a fan last night and it turned it to a good debate.
  3. Seth Littrell, 40, HC, North Texas Littrell played his college ball as a RB at Oklahoma. His first coaching gig was a graduate assistant at KU under Mark Mangino from 2002-04. He was an offensive coordinator at Arizona, Indiana, and North Carolina before becoming the head coach at North Texas in 2016. In two seasons, he has a 14-13 record, but has been to two bowl games. Prior to his arrival, UNT went 1-11. Littrell just signed a five-year extension in March of 2018 that pays him $900k per year with incentives that could push it over $1M, but has a buyout of $3.3M per the USA Today coaching salary database. read more: https://www.rockchalktalk.com/2018/8/14/17681618/18-days-until-kansas-jayhawks-football-coaching-candidates-part-2-up-and-comers

    Great vid! So I have to post this, the Lawrence family came to Tony's tailgate the very first season when Mike was a true freshman and we tried our best to roll out the red carpet treatment for them. Absolutely some of the nicest people I have ever met. This story could not happen to more deserving people and I am so happy for them. Hope to run into them again this season and here's wishing Mike has a great season. GMG!

  6. August 13, 2018 New SERVPRO First Responder Bowl to be played at Cotton Bowl Stadium DALLAS – In a joint effort to honor the service and sacrifice of America’s First Responders, the annual college football bowl game played at Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas has been renamed the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl. Kickoff for the newly christened SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is set for December 26 at 12:30 p.m. CT (1:30 p.m. ET) and will be televised by ESPN. The agreement between ESPN Events and SERVPRO was brokered by Denver-based Impression Sports & Entertainment. "We are truly grateful for all first responders’ sacrifice and service,” said Brant Ringler, Executive Director of the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl. “It is a tremendous privilege to honor these brave men and women who protect our communities 24/7/365. As this game continues to grow, so do our ties with first responders. Additionally, having a sponsor like SERVPRO who works along-side and supports these community heroes reinforces our goals of recognizing our first responders.” "We are proud to present the SERVPRO First Responder Bowl dedicated to honoring some of the hardest working men and women in our country" said Sue Steen, CEO of Servpro Industries, Inc. "We recognize the dedication and selfless acts of our First Responders and are honored to help highlight and celebrate the commitment of these everyday heroes." The 2018 SERVPRO First Responder Bowl is the ninth edition of the bowl game, formerly known as the Heart of Dallas Bowl, and part of the 89-year history of games being played at Cotton Bowl Stadium on the grounds of Dallas’ Fair Park, which features 227 acres of museums, attractions, history, art and performances located in the heart of the ninth largest city in the United States. First responders to be honored include police officers, firefighters, EMS workers, correctional officers, search and rescue, dispatchers, security guards, federal agents, border patrol agents and military personnel who have specialized training and are the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency. “This is an exciting change, and we are humbled by the fact that an actual bowl game has been named exclusively for the first responders of this country,” Dallas Fire-Rescue Fire Chief David Coatney said. “We are truly honored to have a bowl game here in Dallas named after the hard working men and women serving and protecting communities across this country. It always feels great to be recognized, and I know our officers and firefighters are touched by this overwhelming show of support,” said Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall. The SERVPRO First Responder Bowl tickets will go on sale in September. Tickets for First Responders will continue to be underwritten by our corporate sponsors.

    Football Practice Facility

    Welcome to the site. I think it will be huge, and I think it will have a major impact but you are correct - in a sense - it is keeping up with the Jones'. That's the problem with athletic facilities, you can blink your eye and what you thought would put you at the top is now outdated. Perfect example is you wouldn't think UT would be needing new facilities anytime soon with all that they have. UT just approved $175 million in upgrades to DKR and I just saw an article that part of the reason Jimbo Fisher left Florida State for A&M was the lack of a "football only" facility. While we are not recruiting against these schools, we sure want to be in a good position for the schools that we are recruiting against.
  8. NORTH TEXAS MEAN GREEN COACH: Seth Littrell, 14-13, third season at North Texas 2017 RECORD: 9-5, 7-1 C-USA POSTSEASON: lost to Troy 50-30 in New Orleans Bowl » A LOOK BACK The Mean Green made a dramatic turnaround in Littrell’s second season at the helm. North Texas won nine games for the seventh time in program history thanks to a prolific offense that featured 4,000-yard passer Mason Fine and 1,000-yard running back Jeffery Wilson.

    I agree SMU is huge but I hate to think we can blow a whole season in the very first game.

    Tulsa AD+Coaches accept pay reductions

    That coach Monty is on a very short leash. We are benefiting from their being down. Need to keep it that way.
  12. It would be interesting to see how the success of the offense and passing game has impacted the amount of time the defense is required to be on the field. Back in the Dickey and some of the Mac days, we had stout defenses but they did not have to be on the field near as much.
