  1. The "when" was originally an "if". Then I said, why not?, and deleted and replaced that mofo.
  2. No doubt. Can you imagine when NT excels in non-conference next season, starts well in conference, then Memphis comes to Denton with division championship implications on the line?
  3. Michigan?!? Wow! Welcome aboard Gracie, you're going to love Denton, TX! ...If just for the weather!
  4. I mean, obviously we're not going to hear him say that ... right now. When the time comes for Baker to make the move, what are you thinking he's going to say? "Well, uh, we're lil' ol' North Texas. I guess we'll just give this $2million/year to whoever is generous enough with their kind heart to come on board and coach us." This isn't youth rec football. We're not desperate for volunteers. This is one of 130 jobs in America, and we're paying VERY WELL! There will be a myriad of well-qualified coaches who desire this job.
  5. You fire because he's not meeting expectations. Plain & Simple. You cannot know who the next coach will be until the current one is gone. The AD has proven in other hires that he can identify good coaches. Why would we doubt him regarding a football coach? You're thinking along the lines of The-Devil-You-Know-Is-Better-Than-The-Devil-You-Don't. This isn't going to get us anywhere but where we're at. If you're happy with that, so be it. But you're in an ever-growing minority.
  6. There are a lot of people that will look at wins VS mediocre-to-bad C-USA teams and think, "Hey! this is so much better than Late-Dickey, Dodge, & McCarney! We're in a better place now! We're going to bowl games almost every year! Be careful, because change could put us back to that previous level!" And this is true. However, if we're truthful in thinking forward, we'll see that in less than 1 year, we'll be moving into a much more difficult situation to achieve that same kind of .500 football success. We're also stuck with very stagnant fan engagement. Most of that is due to a lack of football success, but some is also due to the fact that the football coach could give 2 practice swings about their/our engagement, and his wet-mop personality doesn't pair well with middling football to win fans. This aint Nick Saban or Bill Belichick (some of the common names people throw out there when this point is made). We're also seeing recruiting put on the back burner because the coaches know they must win right now in order to keep their current employment status... which means pour all time/effort into winning the next game on the schedule. In other words, we're robbing the future to keep the middling going. Don't be surprised with a win at home VS a struggling LATech team in 2 weeks. ...The fun starts 10/22 at the Alamodome and continues the following week.
  7. He tried to. 3 different times after Harrell left. All of them (for whatever reasons) were abject failures: Bodie Reeder Tate Wallis Blake Joseph If I understand correctly, after 3 strikes, you're out. Just go get the best available coach you can get. Clements is a pretty good get. Fortunately, it means we now have 2 really good OL coaches on board. One of them happens to be a pretty bright Xs & Os guy in the Briles tree, so he gets to call plays and be the "QBs Coach" too. For intents & purposes, we have 2 "QBs coaches", via analysts Cole Johnson & Quinn Shanbour. Definitely not the best way to do it, but again, I'd rather have Clements than have Littrell somehow find another bum QBs coach (which he definitely would have).
  8. I’m not sure if Austin Aune took any steps towards building a connection with Jyaire Shorter after connecting with him for 3 TDs in win over Owls. Does anyone know?
  9. Wait, “win out” means you don’t lose another game. Do you mean to say (purely hypothetical) that if NT won CUSA, then won a bowl game against what should be a really good team, you’d still want to fire Littrell? I couldn’t get behind that. That kind of turnaround wouldn’t be smoke & mirrors like last year’s late run.
  10. … but then you take it out of the RBs’ hands & have Aune throw, which stalled the momentum. Bailed by a penalty. I can see why Taggart is on the hot seat.
  11. We should be able to run it behind that interior OL & just kill clock. This game SHOULD be a win.
  12. Say what you want about Aune, but I’d rather have him than Perry. For sure.
  13. This game should be 35-7 after running it down FAU’s throat to end the half. Instead, FAU is back in the game, carrying momentum into halftime.
  14. He has about 8 years on me, but I totally agree with you. I think some are just myopic in what they see happening in front of their face. It's painfully obvious Littrell is being retained too long. That said, his 30 years (and my 22) explains why it's so frustrating to see football sink back down to sub-par, and just spin wheels for 4 seasons when you watched it climb out to 9-win seasons and a Conference championship game appearance not that long ago.
  15. It would be Wren's job to step on Seth's toes. THEN bring Fuente (or whoever else) in.
