  1. Yeah, and within 24 hours of the loss, Boise fired a coach. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/34657389/day-disheartening-loss-utep-boise-state-fires-offensive-coordinator-tim-plough
  2. I see no glory in beating the UTEP's of C-USA. The only games I'm focused on this season are against SMU, UNLV, Memphis, FAU, LA Tech, UTSA, WKU, & UAB. So far, we are 0-3 in these "better" games. I think that is a fair standard for accessing a coach in his 7th season at UNT. Personally, I think the OOC games against SMU, UNLV, & Memphis were a large enough sample size. Getting excited about winning the "lesser" games can cloud the judgement and give a false sense of improvement.
  3. I think Wren runs the risk of being labeled a basketball AD since he continues to tolerate failure from our football program. It's insane that he can orchestrate the building of our successful basketball program yet completely drop the ball with football.
  4. Our fans are just tired of losing. Of course there going to complain. The best way to stop the complaining is to build a program that actually wins.
  5. Two second half pick-6's and a bad snap inside our redzone is completely unacceptable for a program in its 7th year under a coach.
  6. Sean Payton? College football isn't the NFL, but with NIL and the portal, it's getting closer. The question is could Wren make UNT the right situation for Payton? “I really enjoy what I’m doing right now,” Payton said. “More than maybe then I thought. If the right situation presented itself, I would definitely be interested. There’s no utopia, if you will, when it comes to teams. If I felt like if it was the right situation, I would have an interest in that." https://www.si.com/nfl/2022/09/21/sean-payton-was-asked-if-he-wants-to-coach-in-2023
  7. If this is the case, then why was Littrell not let go after his 5th bowl loss sealed his 3rd straight losing season?
  8. Not happy about this. It's not good news for UNT... or any other other FBS program in Texas. It appears SMU isn't messing around. I can't believe they will be able to challenge Texas or Texas A&M in NIL, but SMU is going to try buy a better position on the college football ladder despite being in the G5. SMU is launching another collective tomorrow. I don't have details, but it appears they are going to top Texas Tech's $25K per player standard. Here is the link to their new "Boulevard Collective" twitter account. They should make their official announcement tomorrow. https://twitter.com/theboulevardnil/status/1556045150329126913?s=21&t=zjg5uOCKMpE5RHI1B3w_6g
  9. Great interview! Thanks for doing this Harry. RV and the heavy hitters will do a wonderful job. So glad to see Craig Robertson is a major force in this thing too. Can't wait for the site to go online. Here is a great article about NIL's in the AAC. At the time of this article only a few of our future conference-mates had NIL's. They were SMU, Memphis, Tulane, & UTSA (yes, UTSA already has a collective... But I think it's only something like every player that signs with UTSA gets a bucket of KFC and $5 gift card to Taco Bell). Here is a link to the AAC NIL article... https://www.underdogdynasty.com/2022/4/5/23008827/nil-collectives-how-prevalent-are-they-in-the-aac-name-and-image-likeness-american-college-football
  10. I'm not a big fan of these new icy whites. It comes off like a G5 Oregon ripoff. I'm of the opinion that we need a solid unique look that sets us apart from everyone else... and then we can make minor variations but keep the core of the look. I'd like to see a marriage of the kelly green and apple green to create a two-tone set of home and away jersey combinations. Similar to the throwbacks but using the current logo.
  11. Be heard Mean Green Nation. https://twitter.com/txfblife/status/1549900991180447744?cxt=HHwWgICxhayvrYIrAAAA
  12. UNT's recruiting is lagging far behind SMU, and now also UTSA. SMU has 15 recruits and enjoys a current ranking of #44 on 247Sports. UNT has 4 recruits and no ranking by the site. 10 of the commits held offer from both programs, but only 1 of those 10 recruits chose UNT. UTSA also enjoys a similar recruiting advantage against UNT. Why are we failing to recruit these high caliber players? Is this a result of the recent NIL changes in college football or is it a different problem? What is your plan to improve our recruiting as UNT prepares to join the AAC in 2023?
  13. Despite earning a bowl in 2021, UNT had an average attendance of 16,689, down from pre-COVID years like 2019 when the Mean Green had average crowds of 21,358 with a 4-8 record. With Apogee back open at full capacity, what does Wren feel is keeping some of our fans away, and how are season ticket sales looking for this season? Up or down from last year?
  14. The elevation behind the Wing Zone is actually higher than where the flag currently resides, so it should be visible from even farther away if moved. I'd think we could fly it higher than the lights on Apogee. That should keep it impossible to miss from the 35's and visible from many part of Denton.
