  1. Morris is 18-40 as a head coach. But if you think he's an upgrade then go ahead.????????
  2. Possible new poll question: Will more people be upset if UNT loses 10 games next year. or Will more people be upset if UNT wins 10 games next year. Judging by this forum it would be a tossup.
  3. Kansas hired Lance Leipold after he went 37-33 at Buffalo. He went 2-10 this year. Indiana hired Tom Allen who was the DC at S. Florida and 0-0 as a head coach. He went 2-10 this year. Geogia Tech hire Geoff Collins after he went 15-10 at Temple. He went 3-9 this year and 9-25 overall. There are a dozen similar stories with P5 schools. There will be schools looking for HCs. If Littrell has a 9 or 10 win season and a record of 47-42 he will get looks.
  4. Outrageous early prediction: If Littrell is left alone, UNT will win 9 to 11 games next year. His overall record will be 46 to 48 wins and 41 or 42 losses. Some P5 schools will take a long look at him and try to hire him away. You can tell me how stupid I was a year from now.
  5. He also won an NFL championship as a player and one as an assistant coach. He is credited with popularizing the two-minute offense.
  6. I received my bachelor's degree in 4 years. It just takes some people longer than others, so let's cut Littrell some slack.
  7. Littrell has a pretty good and improving young team. Of the 26 players listed on the offensive depth chart for the bowl game, only 3 are seniors. On defense only 5 of 22 players are seniors. I agree things are different now. Player can now transfer easily when a head coach and his staff leave.
  8. OK. Get a new coach. Tear it down. Rebuild. 2006 3-9 Darrell Dickey Get a new coach. Tear it down. Rebuild. 2010 2-9 Todd Dodge (1-6) Get a new coach. Tear it down. Rebuild. 2015 1-11 Dan McCarney (0-5) Get a new coach. Tear it down. Rebuild. 2021 6-6 heading into a bowl game Sounds familiar, except this time it would be tearing it down and then having to rebuild.
  9. Yes. This is a young team that has found itself. The next 2 years could be special if things stay put. However, with all the moral support he received this season, I don't know if I could blame him.
  10. Top 10 Possible bowls: 10. Target Bowl in Archer City 9. Yeti Bowl in Big Foot 8. FTD Bowl in Flower Mound 7. Eagle Claw Bowl in Hooks 6. Cici's Pizza Bowl in Italy 5. Nike Bowl in Marathon 4. Mahatma Bowl in Rice 3. Butterball Bowl in Turkey 2. Miracle-Gro Bowl in Garden Ridge 1. Viagra Bowl in Greatwood
  11. I was looking at the records of teams in CUSA and noticed a very odd stat. UNT, Old Dominion, and Western Kentucky opened the season with a combined record of 3-16, then they went for a combined 17-0 over their last 17 games. UNT and Old Dominion each opened at 1-6 and then won their last 5 games, while WK open at 1-4 and then won their last 7. What are the odds?
  12. Littrell seems have the loyalty of his players. What's happening at OU is interesting, with both recruits decommitting and players transferring. Spencer Rattler would look good in a green UNT uniform.
  13. UTSA has the highest paid coach in the conference (2.8 ave for 10yrs) and they just got stomped by a 6-6 team that has won their last 5 games.
  14. PERSPECTIVE. Do you think a new coach will automatically mean utopia? This is a young team that has found itself. Let them have a chance. The next 2 years could be very special. Or you could change coaches, have players transfer out, and start the rebuilding process all over again.
  15. Littrell's 37-37 record doesn't looks so bad when you compare it to the 28-69 combined record of the prior 2 coaches. Their teams quit on them. Just saying.
  16. Darrell Dickey lost in the bowl game that year, but won the bowl game the next year by beating Cincinnati.
  17. Seth Littrell just pulled off a Darrell Dickey. (2001) He did not let his team quit.
  18. So how many wins will Seth need next year to silence his critics?
  19. Maybe everyone should wait a minute and hear what Jimmy Chitwood has to say before the vote.
  20. Maybe they decided to put all their money in their coaches. Why pay for a new stadium when they are practically given a 72,000 seat indoor stadium. You don't buy a cow when the milk is free.
  21. It seems the $7.5 million buyout gradually tapers. Being signed through 2031 has to make recruiting much easier.
  22. UNT caught lightning in a bottled because Mason Fine had receivers. Jaylen Guyton, now with the Chargers, Jaylen Darden, now with Tampa Bay, Rico Bussey, now with the Steelers, and a very productive Michael Lawrence who is #9 all time at UNT with 143 receptions.
  23. UTSA is averaging about 40 points per game and they have shut out 2 teams. They beat Rice 45-0. It won't be easy upsetting them. They have outscored their opponents by an average of 21 points per game this season. While I'm not big on a moral victory, it's better than being blown out.
  24. If UTSA rolls in here ranked and 11 - 0, they will try to make it a statement game for ranking purposes. There is certainly no love loss on their side. They'll try to make it a really bad "extra crispy" game.
  25. We are 1-6 now. The winnable games that are left are all on the road. We are at Rice, at Southern Miss, and at FIU. We play UTSA (8-0) and UTEP (6-1) here. I hope this season turns around, but it doesn't look good.
