  1. John Savage (as many mentioned) Jim Mudd - even though he played only 2 seasons in Denton, he appears near the top in several all-time school categories. He averaged 25.2 points per game and 11.5 rebounds/game. In addition, he earned All Missouri Valley Conference team honors both years and at one time was the ninth leading scorer in the nation. Playing in the Missouri Valley Conference, Mudd went up against many formidable opponents including Cincinnati (#1 in the country), Bradley, St. Louis, Houston, and Wichita State. His battles with Cincinnati’s Oscar Robertson were amazing.
  2. Interesting discussion here. I get why most SL defenders state that he changed the culture. There’s no doubt that, when SL took over our program, it was in a downward spiral. I give him credit for his first few years and how he changed the team’s records from losing to winning seasons. He did change the team by setting us up for winning seasons (thus breaking the losing culture we were experiencing prior to his arrival). In turn, the program experienced increased fan excitement and support (indoor practice facility, etc). I’ll give him credit there. To be fair, you have to look at the last season and a half. We have begun returning to the losing culture that SL had helped change. Now, I have a serious question for all SL supporters. What would you say is the primary reason for our players being outplayed (outperformed) on the field? My response...our offensive and defensive lines have been outplayed consistently. Our opponents dominate the line of scrimmage. I know there is a lot of discussion about game strategy and decisions by the coaching staff. Let’s just set aside coaching decisions made DURING games. What has this staff done to address our most glaring weakness ON the field? It has been exposed and is no secret. If you’re going to defend the current staff, shouldn’t it be concerning that they have NOT addressed this weakness through recruiting and the transfer portal. Good coaches (and programs) do that. So, when I and others call for a change, it’s based on looking ahead to a situation which appears to not have a lot of reasons to be optimistic in the near future (next 3-5 years). No improvement in offensive and defensive lines equals status quo or worse. I don’t care how many 3 star skill players you recruit and celebrate on signing day. We need to dominate the line of scrimmage in the future to truly change the culture and take our program to the level that we all want!
  3. While I think the QB position is in fairly good shape for next year, who’s going to block for them? We HAVE to bring in linemen for next year and beyond. I do believe many of the youngsters will step up next year at the skill positions. However, it won’t matter if your QB has no time and is running for his life or there are no running lanes open for the RBs.
  4. UNT 69 LaTech 49 A shootout develops with a Mean Green offensive explosion in the second half to pull away for the win. During the after game press conference, SL remarks “Who needs a defense, if you can score 69!”
  5. Hey, if I need to look like a fool to help earn a victory, sign me up weekly! So glad I was wrong!
  6. UNT 24 UTEP 28 Coach Mumbles loses another game that they shouldn’t and he proceeds to put everyone to sleep with his monotone, unemotional, and usual ridiculous postgame interview. Time to clear house!
  7. Ok. My statement on the players quitting was wrong. I apologize for that. They have way too much pride and desire to win. What I meant to say was they are no longer supportive of much of the coaching decisions, play calling, and schemes. It wasn’t quitting but rather no longer supporting its coaches (like it once did). I’m sure the players are as tired of the game results as well.
  8. This team has quit on their coach. Their coach has quit on the team. No one is accountable for their lack of performance. I’m tired of the apathy from coaches and the “I’m just here to collect a check attitudes.” Attendance and fan support is exponentially dwindling (and rightfully so). If this weren’t enough, I see no offensive or defensive line help coming in committed recruits and no coaching emphasis on changing this deficiency. It’s time to clear house. Some will roll eyes or disagree. But, serious question. How far backward must we go to undo the progress that was made in SL’s early success? For me, we have reached that point.

  10. As several have mentioned and I’ve been saying all along, we HAVE to recruit offensive and defensive linemen. This should be our focus for any transfer portal candidates too. We HAVE to improve our line play. Dominate the line of scrimmage! This is the key to not only consistently winning in CUSA but also to taking our program to the next level. Once we have solidified our lines, skill position players will follow with future recruits and transfers.
  11. We have to focus on improving our O and D lines. Controlling the line of scrimmage is key to consistent winning and championships in CUSA. Unfortunately, our current coaching staff is enamored with recruiting only skill position players (which as a priority should come after you build a program with solid line play).
  12. Old Denton bad mojo never left this program. I’m afraid we need to clear house, cut our losses, and try to get out of this funk.
  13. At this point, Seth is just collecting a check. I’m tired of the apathy, excuses, and lack of results.
  14. Very possible. If his replacement builds his team through recruiting strong line play, then we will finally be headed in the right direction. You have to control the line of scrimmage.
