  1. It's kind of hard to see why this is on our football forum, other than a lack of anything else. He never had a chance of being hired here. There seems to be some undercurrent of support for his rehabilitation, but we are in no position to do anything but look forward to the next hfc coach hire for UNT, who needs to be someone without the kind of baggage that the Briles name brings. Doesn't he have a retirement plan sufficient to get us past some kind of pity party for the guy?
  2. He's busy enough deciding whether to close schools due to weather.
  3. Well, I guess yesterday was the last time it could have any real chance for coolness until March third of next year.
  4. Ok, I see we have some of the same unanswered questions. I think if any other school is competing with us for receivers or quarterbacks, they may point out the same issues. I actually had some hope that an experienced quarterback coach might be brought in from the outside, but I'm now wondering if SL has decided that his late season emphasis on the run game, which worked ok until it didn't, might be his plan going forward, as we have hired a new O line coach instead. My brother-in-law from Boise mentioned that he thought the strategy of outscoring their opponents was the way Boise State had succeeded. On this one topic I would agree with him, and that as a way forward for us. Maybe Seth thinks he'll strike lightning with Stone. Objectively though, it seems that Aune regressed last year, when we had no full time qb coach. I really think that SL wants to stick with a quarterback he starts the season with, and once he's changed, doesn't consider other options.
  5. You seem to be referencing Kade Renfro, a quarterback who backed out of a commitment to UNT to sign with Ole Miss. I can understand someone who may be a good qb somewhere being buried on the depth chart behind someone who, at this point, appears likely to be the drafted in the first round of the next NFL draft. It's harder to understand quarterbacks being buried in the depth chart at UNT since the departure of Mason Fine, considering the level of play at that position we have seen. And honestly, highly talented FBS quarterbacks get benched or beaten out by others all the time, transfer to other schools, play where they wouldn't have if they'd stayed put, and often succeed beyond expectations at the time they transfer, just not here. Of course we're talking about more than quarterbacks in this thread, but that's who you chose as an example, and UNT as a place "not to be buried on the depth chart". What have we seen in the last 3 years to justify that, for quarterbacks anyway? And I'm sure I'm not the only here to think "hey the first two guys aren't getting it done, next up".
  6. A bitter pill, perhaps the bitterest in the Seth era, in my humble opinion. Well, I'm done with this Mean Green Football until the Seth Show hits the road for good. Martin looked good every time he was out there. If anyone knows why he never got a chance despite no quarterback after Mason's departure showing us any reason why they were on the field, I would be interested in reading about it. My theory is that Seth keeps a Hotel California style of quarterback doghouse Kason where Kason checked in (perhaps by letting it be known he wanted to play?), and couldn't leave. Good Luck, Kason Martin, and I expect you'll finally be seeing the field and getting results elsewhere.
  7. So, how is that Kason Martin has fallen so far since appearing to be good enough to play at this level 3 years ago in the New Mexico Bowl once Mason went down, and has not been given opportunities for meaningful playing time since? This, despite UNT not really having anyone playing qb well enough to keep opposing defenses honest for the last 2 years.
  8. After what we've seen since Mason Fine left, your prescription is settling for mediocrity at the qb position? I'm not sure how that would sound out on the recruiting trail, "hey we see you as our best hope for an average passing game". Honestly though, it seems that for the last 2 years we've never risen to the level of adequate qb play, so maybe you have a point. Wouldn't it be better though, to aim higher, even giving a shot to others on the roster, just on the off chance that they might be one of those who is better in a game than in practice?
  9. I went to a Euless Trinity vs Allen playoff game at Apogee maybe 5 or 6 years ago and it was standing room only. I hate to say it, but to me, it looked like a crowd for a college football game should look.
  10. Why would we assume that he would not, or that he wouldn't otherwise be released, when there is an example of someone much more successful at another level (and recently more competitive against power 5 teams) leaving by "mutual agreement" just last week: https://footballscoop.com/news/john-grass-steps-down-jacksonville-state
  11. Why wouldn't we want SL (and UNT) to win out, including a bowl win? If he did that, then left, he would probably have a better chance for a well paying assistant position somewhere, reducing the amount of our payout
  12. Didn't Seth say once that he wanted to coach a high school triple option team after he left college coaching? Are we sure he hasn't already started that career change?
  13. I watched that game and wished we still had him to start against Liberty.
  14. No to Bennett. If he won a few he has the resume to become a credible hfc candidate here, who probably doesn't have what it takes to set this program right, based on his record at SMU. Maybe Cobbs could be a good fit as interim, as there would be few expectations anyway, and if he won a few or at least had us playing competitively, might set himself up for a promotion here or a good move to another school, which could look good for us. I just don't see us a place where a "new" coach should be an internal hire, which a Bennett promotion might portend.
