  1. As to why they didn't get transfer help? I don't know. Maybe they tried, maybe they thought they had the horses in the barn. My observation is that this staff isn't committed to Defense. Are they committed to passing numbers & touchdown passes? Absolutely. That's the identity they sell. I don't know what they sell on D. I'm not saying there's not a developmental component in the reason they're historically terrible, but when I see other defenses we play, I have a hard time saying "Our starter is better than theirs."
  2. OR... They just aren't good enough. Outside of Novil, that side of the ball can't play. The sample size is large enough.
  3. I’d take Kaydon Kirby over Fortenberry. 2015: • Named to the Remington and Lombardi Award watch lists • Played in and started 10 games at center, before suffering an injury against Tennessee • Dating back to his redshirt freshman season, he had started 35 straight games at center 2014: • Started all 12 games and has started 25 straight games at center • The Mean Green rushed for over 200 yards on three different occasions in 2014 • The Mean Green ran for 21 touchdowns in 2014, which is tied for the eighth most in school history. 2013: • Named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team after starting all 13 games at center • Was part of an offensive line that has allowed only 11 sacks on the season and the fewest sacks in the nation with 17 over the last two years • Paved the way for Brandin Byrd to rush for over 1,000 yards • Was part of a record-breaking offense that has set a school record for total yards in a season with 5,336 • First freshman to start every game at center since Andy Brewster in 2001 2012: • Redshirted

  5. Yup. Other than Novil, I wouldn’t give a bag of beans for both lines next year.

  7. New stadium, fourth year coach, new IPF? Same D line recruiting. Look at the last 2 classes & tell me where the help is coming from. Blame the DC, blame the whole damn staff. They have proven they can’t bring in front seven talent. Won’t get better anytime soon. But hey we’ve got 18 WRs.
  8. I understand the staff was counting on the K-State transfer but after four years this position group has been abandoned. No chance at the CUSA title if this group isn't better than S. Miss & LA Tech. Take a look at the Southern Miss roster. If we had that size I'd be fine with 18 WRs.
  9. There's no commitment here to recruit size on the lines of scrimmage. The D line rotation is too small. The LBs are too small. The O line is average on their good days. The team who wins CUSA will have the best line play.
  10. My head hurts badly I'm cast to this Practice Shed Rescue me daddy! CJK5H
  11. What’s Larry Fedora doing these days???
  12. Somebody needs to make a Transformer-like Halloween costume outta this thing.
  13. Lots of the Star-Telegram's old sports staff write for SPTSpage.com. -Good stuff if you enjoy DFW sports... Here's the link to John Henry's story. https://sptspage.com/like-a-tied-up-goat/ In part... DENTON – Despite positioning on the evening’s program, most of the Apogee Stadium-record crowd of more than 29,500 came to see the undercard on Saturday night rather than the main event featuring scions of a North Texas favorite son. While professional wrestlers Ross and Marshall Von Erich waited to take the stage, the Mean Green football team – in front of famed alum and former football player Kevin Von Erich – used everything but the iron claw to whip SMU into submission in a result practically no one saw coming … except perhaps the home team. How many Oklahomans does it take to beat up the Mustangs 46-23 in a victory that was in no way actually that close? Oklahoman Mason Fine, the North Texas quarterback, battered the SMU defense for a career-high 444 yards and three touchdowns on 40-of-50 passing. His favorite target? Oklahoman Rico Bussey Jr., who had a career-high nine receptions for 109 yards. Their coach? Oklahoman Seth Littrell, who beat one of his closest friends, Sonny Dykes, the new head coach of SMU, the alma mater of the one who built the Von Erich empire, patriarch Fritz Von Erich. So, the answer would appear to be three Oklahomans, but that’s only if you don’t count a Mean Green defense that, well, to borrow a phrase made famous by Dykes’ inventive-humorist-coaching father, whipped the Mustangs like a tied-up goat.
