  1. Fast turnaround in the search! We can still let Seth go!
  2. I think we are all frustrated at how this is working out. Seth appears to run a clean program and the players seem to really like him—-but he has not won games of meaning. 0-2 in conference championships and 0-5 in bowl games. A couple of wins against Army (but lost the bowl), Arkansas, and the fluke of UTSA last year. But that is really it in seven years. And no real momentum built off of them. People have asked all year what he need to do to stay and I have stated 1. win two out of three regular season games with UTSA, WKU, and UAB. NO! 2. Get to the cUSA championship game. YES. With one not achieved I felt as though Seth needed a win in the championship game. NO 3. Win the Bowl game—???? I would have hoped that there would have been an announcement by now but the Wren thing has thrown an additional “Wrench” into the situation. The grass is not always greener but come on.
  3. Please, Mr President money whip a good coach to help us!!!? Bring your fans back! 1. Gary Patterson 3m might do it if you also throw another 1-1.5 for assistants and/or support staff. 2. Jeff Grimes- will cost you less and he has skins on the wall as an assistant. Heard from a source that A&M is trying to get him to replace Dickey and actually call plays. 3. Garrett Riley- same money as Seth, young and energetic family bloodlines. There is no reason we can’t. For goodness sake FAU got Herman.
  4. Yes- with the current coach! No- for the money we are paying him. I would not feel so bad if we were paying him, like $850k instead of $1.8m base salary. At least then I could stomach the W/L record— BUT would then be complaining about wanting better for a little bit more $$.
  5. Yes, if he wins both you can’t get rid of a 9 game winner.
  6. Now, now— one game at a time—please.
  7. Glad he has committed to us. The offer sheet is impressive. Needs to gain some weight.
  8. Any announcement (even if we lose to Rice) will not come until after the championship game. The buy out drops in early December again!!! Only way it happens right after Rice would be agreed upon by Littrell and Wren at the lower buy out.
  9. This will be a very difficult decision for Wren. The next two games will give us the answer. . . a loss in either of these and the announcement will come after the championship game (unless Seth agrees to the lower buyout earlier). He has to win out to keep his job. I don’t think he will and I’m not suggesting that he should. This loss was a major step in that fork in the road that Wren was facing. Now as for a new coach for UNT in the American— hell, who knows. It totally depends on the type of staff that they can put together and keep. What would y’all think if we were able to get Skip HC and either Graham or Applewhite as OC/QB?
  10. We are on the same page. But I do believe that if he wins the next 3 (don’t think he will) and gets to 9 he won’t be fired. Nothing will be announced until after the championship game b/c the buyout drops again.
  11. Said a long time ago that he would need to 1. win two out of three (UTSA, WKU, UAB) looks like a NO! 2. Get a championship game appearance and/or win (now must be a win now) 3. Win a bowl game. Looks like it less likely that he stays. Plus Rice Will be looking to “hit 6.”
  12. 2 out of 3 (UTSA, WKU, UAB) Conference Championship game appearance/win Bowl WIN 🏆 Some combination of the above. This would also equate to another 9 win season. We would be a laughing stock if we fired a coach that won 9 games three times in 7 years at North Texas. This will lead to 1 of 2 things: 1. 3-5 year extension. Hopefully with a better buyout structure for the university. 2. He won 9 games x3 at UNT— He gets swooped up by a lower level P5 and he won’t pass it up this time around.
  13. Never said that we didn’t have a couple of position groups that could compete but I am interested in all position groups getting better. You have to recruit better than what you currently have on your roster or there is a problem.
