  1. It’ll be an exhibition game for them but not for us. One of those weird things where the NCAA lets the D2 school count the game as an exhibition but let’s the D1 school count the (presumed) win on their record.
  2. I’m very excited about him, even though the offer list isn’t great. He is the first high school recruit Littrell has signed that actually has left tackle written all over him. Problem is he is going to at least need a redshirt year.
  3. I know technically we returned him, but don’t forget Woodworth. His loss, along with Murray and Mayfield (2 Mccarney signees and a grad transfer), has really exposed our inability to sign and develop quality high school offensive linemen. Which is something I’ve been saying still hasn’t improved much in quality despite our recent uptick in overall recruiting.
  4. Committed to Wofford. Not sure if he’s still visiting, but hopefully the staff feels confident they will get either Houston or Henry.
  5. Watching the game last night I couldn’t help but think back to Littrell’s first three recruiting classes. We don’t have many Mccarney recruits left and a lot of the JUCOs we signed early on are gone. In year four we’re at the stage where we are leaning on the early high school signees to be the upperclassmen and leaders of the team. According to 247, the 2016 class was ranked 8th in CUSA, the 2017 class was ranked 11th, and the 2018 class was ranked 8th. And by my metrics based on offers, these classes were even a little below the last two Mccarney signed. The turnaround since then is well documented but those guys from the 2019 and 2020 class are years away from being the upperclassmen of our roster. What also hurts is that we only signed, by my count, 10 high school signees in that first class in 2016. It was always a peculiar decision to go so JUCO/transfer heavy right away in a rebuild. And while some of it definitely paid off early, it definitely would be nice to have another 5-10 seniors and redshirt juniors, especially at some of the positions where we are not looking great. At this point the roster is what it is. We are recruiting better at most positions, and that took time to turnaround our reputation. We have won the last two years without having great depth, and we’re going to have to do so this year as well. All this to say I don’t need to go into detail on where the team needs to improve, but based on recruiting results this team should be an average to slightly below average CUSA roster with a really good QB and that’s what we’ve looked like this year.
  6. Football CUSA Championship game is that day
  7. Looks like we will also be hosting North Carolina A&T on 11/19 as part of this tournament. http://www.ncataggies.com/SportSelect.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=24500&SPID=74518&SPSID=593455
  8. Utah State and Rhode Island schedules are now consistent. Looks like we will play Rhode Island on 11/22 and Utah State on 11/24
  9. He was only at Arkansas State for one year. I agree it’s premature. So was Littrell’s first raise. I think Baker and his crew believe in their coaches and are willing to pay them for what they are going to do more than what they’ve done. Our administration is doing everything and committing as much as possible in nearly every facet to make our major programs successful. Including keeping our coaches happy and making it clear that we’re about keeping them, doing what we can to help their programs, and keep them focused on what they can build here long term, rather than keeping an exit strategy in mind. Whether or not it pays off is another question. But that’s just my explanation of the rationale.
  10. https://www.prephoops.com/2019/08/mike-miles-down-to-five-schools/ IN MIKE’S WORDS North Texas: “I have not been on the new campus officially. They came in pretty late but their coaching staff contacted me after Peach Jam and I love what they said. I have known their staff for two years and am taking them very seriously.”
  11. So a bit of confusing info has come out over the last few weeks. Utah State announced on their schedule that they will be playing LSU on 11/22 and us on 11/24 Rhode Island also announced they will be playing LSU on 11/22, and North Texas or Utah State on 11/24. LSU’s schedule is showing TBA for both dates.
  12. We talk a lot about how things will affect our recruiting abilities going forward, as it pertains to prospective student athletes. But I think our ability to attract quality coaches is as high as it ever has been. Our administration is proving how much of a priority athletics is and how they’re willing to raise and pay the costs necessary to create a winner.
