  1. That’s stupid to say. He played hard here and had some great years. If he stays at UNT he is going to have a young QB that has basically never played in college determining his NFL future. He would probably max out as a 4th-5th round pick with everything going perfect here. He has a chance to be a 2nd round pick or so if he has a good year at a P5. I don’t want to see him leave either, but people also have to be realistic. This is a family decision to potentially set them up for years to come. I love UNT, but anyone that would put a school above doing what is best for his family and career is just being stupid and petty.
  2. I remember him being knocked for making TOO many tackles in college and that they thought he couldn’t make plays at the LOS because of that.
  3. Fine measured in at 5’ 9 3/4”. That is probably about the worst thing that could’ve happened for him. Really needed like 5’ 11”. Stupid to think that 1.25” would make a big deal but the NFL has a track record for being stupid.
  4. As I don’t follow Kansas at all, I honestly have no clue whether or not he is a good hire. The thing that gives me pause is that he was the DC/S coach here in 2011 and then almost a decade later he takes the same job again. Obviously he seems like a loyal guy so that may play into it, but if he is to be a great/good DC you’d think that he wouldn’t be taking the same DC job at the same CUSA program a decade later and would instead be moving up the ladder... Obviously I hope that he works out and wish him nothing but the best, but I can definitely see how it would be hard for some people to get too excited about it. Personally I wanted Koonz as it was a night and day difference in the LBs before, during, and after his time here.
  5. https://www.google.com/amp/s/247sports.com/college/north-texas/Article/North-Texas-football-staff-promotions-Tommy-Mainord-Jeff-Koonz-Luke-Walerius-129392701/Amp/ “Luke Walerius, North Texas' director of recruiting, will continue overseeing all of the Mean Green's recruiting efforts. However, Walerius will also take on the title of Chief of Staff, which will involve him directly assisting head coach Seth Littrell with day-to-day duties within the football program.” To me it seems like they could be grooming Walerius to be the next HC if Littrell leaves in the next couple of years? He’s definitely done an amazing job with recruiting!
  6. Im not sure if it’s already been mentioned but if Riley is coming on board as RB coach like was mentioned previously, then Nichol almost makes too much sense. Looks like he coached under Littrell as WRs coach at Arizona for 3 years and coached with Garrett Riley for 3 years at East Carolina. Would make a lot of sense relationally and schematically.
  7. The deadline was January 14th so he’s locked in and can’t come back. Hopefully he can catch on with someone, though I’d say at best he was the third best receiver at UNT so not super likely. I’m guessing with all the young talented guys coming up he figured his stock probably wouldn’t increase more and since he already has his degree might as well try now with his high school pedigree and his CUSA newcomer of the year more recent.
  8. He signed custom ”Mean Joe” cokes this year at the scholarship event honoring his late wife.
  9. I agree. It seems like Harrell and Littrell put together a good game plan but then Harrell sticks with it even after the defense adapts. I think he just needs to learn to better adapt and have confidence to deviate from the game plan.
  10. I think that Harrell is a great QB coach as evidenced by Fine’s growth. The problem is that unlike being a QB coach where he can directly use his playing experience, play calling takes time to develop. I think he has a lot of potential as a coach but I think the frustration stems from his play calling not developing as fast as many fans would like. The offense has been good but has left a lot of points on the board from suspect play calling at times.
  11. Which 2018 and 2019 recruits do you expect to make the most impact next year?

  13. I think Harrell is a good QB coach as we have seen how much better Fine has gotten each year. He just needs a lot more development as a play caller and unfortunately I think that to live up to their potential this team needs a better play caller. Yellock doesn’t surprise me. Amazing improvement on the dline this year. If he leaves I wish him the best of luck! Biagi seems like a future star with his coaching and recruiting. I think he would be the best candidate to replace Seth down the road if we promoted from within. Choice is in the same boat as Biagi to me. The players seem to LOVE both of them and it seems like every key recruit posts a picture with Choice, Biagi, and Mainord. I would not be surprised to see Choice as a HC somewhere in the next 5 years. Glad to hear on the rest. The only coach I’m on the fence about is Langston. Not impressed with his results but the online recruits for this year seem better. Oline takes a while to develop so I’ll trust Seth on this one. I know a lot of us wanted Reff gone last year and then he turned into a star this year so patience may be a virtue.
  14. Would this be as a Co-OC with someone like Mainord or as the sole OC? I mentioned him yesterday but didn’t know if he was ready for sole OC yet
  15. Oh I agree! (I posted it right above😀). Just looking at potential options. If they went after someone like him it’d probably be more of a Co-OC thing. My choice would be Mainord but with having to bring an extra assistant in Riley would be intriguing with working under Lincoln and makes sense with a prior connection to Seth
  16. I agree! Let’s hope it’s OC/QB coach. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Mainord move up to OC and a QB coach come in. Not based off of anything but just makes sense to me
  17. I did see that Lincoln Rileys brother Garrett has coached the QBs and TEs over the last couple of years at Kansas and it looks like 1 of his years as a player at Tech overlapped with Seth’s. Was an offensive assistant at East Carolina when Lincoln was OC there so maybe an option?
  18. Let’s hope! I would have thought that a guy like Mainord would be promoted but maybe not
  19. Wren just started following this company on twitter: http://ventura-partners.com/sports-management/ it looks like they do executive searches and the Clemson AD is quoted on the page saying that they help find good coaches...😕
  20. And he actually had a crazy amount of success as a recruiter. Mccarney still doesn’t know what the word recruiting means...
  21. This is why KSU never made sense to me. Eventually the NFL money will persuade Lincoln to go and even if Littrell was able to have quick success at KSU they would make the buyout so high because they know that he wants to go to OU that OU would probably look elsewhere.
