  1. Bracket this dude with Gaddie over the top as the options after him are not scary.
  2. Considering this bowl wasn't even a thing less than 2 weeks ago, I doubt they have any of this lined up. And if they do, it's likely very generic stuff.
  3. Here's the reason Shiner is so good: https://247sports.com/Player/Dalton-Brooks-46109467/ No one at the 2A level can hang with this dude.
  4. Listening to Sterling Weatherford and he said this is gonna be the first time a lot of these guys have ever travelled to Texas. There's not a single Texan on their roster! I didn't even think about that... The furthest these guys have travelled to play football over the past 5 years is to Minneapolis and West Point this year, and Minneapolis again in 2018. Crazy. That should work in our favor wouldn't you think?
  5. Best of luck to him! (And I mean that with sincerity) He’s an elite OC. And now that he’s gleaned a lot of Briles’ system to go with his version of the Air Raid, I have no doubt his offense would be top 20 quickly. And I’d fully trust Baker to find a more than capable replacement. But I’m pretty sure if you’re a FBS head coach, you’re not gonna willingly step down a rung, even to a “better” school. I don’t really know of any guys who’ve done that before. Rocky Long “retired” as SDSU’s HC (Brady Hoke was already on staff again so I think they may were looking for a reason to elevate him), then took a DC job at the place where he started his defense, UNM.
  6. You guys sound a lot like us (Minus y'all having a WR threat, & flip-flop OL experience/strengths)!
  7. Welcome! What can you tell us about the RedHawks for those of us who haven't seen y'all play? What is the offensive philosophy? Who are some key players for us to look out for? Looks like your LB, Pace, is a good one!
  8. Nope. They won't have enough time, unless they get a bunch of huge chunk-yardage/explosive plays. NT's going to be running the ball a ton against them, and our DL is going to be living in their backfield. They don't have dudes ours on MAC D-Lines. Should be something like: NT - 30 Miami,OH - 17
  9. Being a former player doesn't necessarily make you a good coach. Is this season not his first as a QBs coach in college football (let alone FBS-level)? Have we seen improvement in QB play from last season? He may wind up being a really great coach someday, but NT needs someone who can help our QBs right now. The connections make sense, sure! But that doesn't equate to being a good QBs coach.
  10. We don't need a guy learning on the job here. NT is past that BS now. Get a dude in here who can develop a QB.
  11. I get the consistency angle here in demanding more from EVERYONE... But there is a cavernous difference between what Hedlund is doing with the Soccer ladies in expecting conference championships every single year VS what Littrell is doing with Football (let's be happy with #hit6!). There may be an upside in replacing Hedlund, sure! But I think it would be very, very risky because the margin is not very big (we're talking, instead of just winning a conference championship, we should also expect to knock off ranked teams at their houses in the NCAAs every year as well!) ...Whereas the margin between 3 seasons of 41% winning football VS even competing for conference championships every single year (let alone expecting to win them) is quite a jump! I can guarantee you if Hedlund turns in 3 years of 41% winning, he's gone. Heck, if he turned in 2 seasons of winning 36%, he'd be run out with gnashing of teeth around here. But that's because of the expectations he, himself, has set for his program. Littrell set some high expectations for himself after 3 seasons, then underperformed woefully, yet is vigorously defended... it makes no sense. PS: It's not as if NT is not competitive in their NCAA tourney losses either. Can you imagine what would happen to NT Football if we played a top 25 team on their home field in the postseason?
  12. It's not really going to change anything. The 4 & 5* guys are still going to these big schools. There is still an 85 scholarship limit per team, and only 25 guys can sign per class. Now, they can definitely dangle that carrot out to transfers who are doing well at other schools, but ideally we could maybe do something similar for our superstars.
  13. We interested in this guy (who entered the portal because of Graham)? https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/4373934/chevan-cordeiro I think he has 2 years to play 2 due to Covid year.
  14. Oh yes! You're right. Nevermind that part. Still wouldn't mind bringing General in.
  15. A 5'11" QB from Iowa, last name starts with "Mc..." It's gonna be a pass for me (Likely an incomplete pass in the dirt).
  16. Saw he was from West Orange, and thought, "Oh, a chance to come home!"... but it was West Orange, NJ. Wonder if he'd want to move all the way to Texas?
  17. Absolutely. Whatever the HC situation is next season, we need someone on staff that can coach-up QBs. As far as I'm concerned, the best QB coach we have currently is a GA.
  18. Hmm. The winningest Volleyball coach in NT history with a 59% win-% and a Conference Championship in his trophy case isn't good enough for Wren Baker & his vision for the program... interesting. It's not like Palileo was a .500, or lower, coach.
  19. Everyone looking for the next Zappe or Mordecai from the portal... Leaving some really nice JUCO players twiddling their thumbs... Hope the coaches hit the JUCOs hard! Take, for instance, General Booty (Excellent bloodlines & nephew of EDIT: former NT coach John David Booty): https://247sports.com/Player/General-Booty-46058082/ https://www.hudl.com/video/3/4640174/613e8b2be97ac303f4e55cfb Or Michael Hiers with his jaw-dropping 72% Completion%!! https://247sports.com/Player/Michael-Hiers-46116966/ https://www.hudl.com/video/3/14933014/6148e885b018b604605cb35c
  20. SDSU has been in & out of the top 25 since 2016 and has lived in the top 25 since the 5th week of this season. They're a very good program.
  21. But when we DO sell out, it's because of you sir! Wren better be taking notes.
