    Some of us who were aware of Phil Bennett’s work ethic at Baylor were amazed that he was even available when SL hired him. Some of us called it a hiring coup matter a fact. 

      Littrell is now 31 & 31 at North Texas.   Most UNT coaches I’ve seen hired at UNT in 5 decades were way under .500 in their year 6.  Let’s call progress as we see it.  I think our fans need to understand we are not going to hire a combInation of Elmer Gantry & Tom Landry in Denton.  Neither is most of the G-5 & lower echelon P-5 for that matter.  

    Our favorite school has named things after coaches who were way under .500 when they left Denton. “If ‘ifs’ & butt’ were candy & nuts we’d all have a Merry Christmas” but...had we had Phil Bennett last year Seth Littrell would have not been on the hot seat at all this year.  

    A good tell-tell  for SL is that most of the Mean Green Football Lettermen group want him back as do the majority of his present players from all accounts. (Had he been terminated there was always a chance for some kind of a boycott or portal transfer blitzkrieg out of the MG Village & that’s what one Denton County alum told me just today).  

    Let’s just play the game & win our fair share with a bowl win or 2 or 3, too?


    I like Coach Litrell and hope he stays in Denton.  I'll hang up now.

  2. In case you can't get enough of Apogee, the red-hot Celina Bobcats will play the Aubrey Chaparrals next Friday, December 3 at 7:30PM in the UIL quarterfinals round at the stadium. 

    Both teams played each earlier in the regular season and Celina dominated the game (as usual).  Celina scored three times in the first and second quarters on the way to a 49-14 win over Aubrey. Aubrey, which was previously undefeated, gave up 413 total yards to Celina (5-1, 1-0 District 4-4A Division II) and had no answer for its ground game, which racked up 260 yards. 

    Here's the playoff bracket and Celina is expected to be playing late in December -  https://www.uiltexas.org/football/playoff-brackets/4AD2

    Celina travels well so expect to see a lot of orange.  GO BOBCATS!
