    HB - Gumms

    ....

     

    This guy is flying way under the radar, and I think is going to really break out this season if his QBs can get him the ball.    No doubt Littrell & Bloesch can scheme to get him the ball... it's just about execution from there.

    And I'm skeptical that Gunnell can win the job over Aune just being here over the Summer/Fall.   I think Coach Littrell may have learned his lesson last Fall, and will roll with Aune until Gunnell can actually WIN the job from him.

    Adding Gunnell and convincing Aune to stick around should be all Ruder needs to see.  I'm surprised he stuck around.

    I had the same thought, however after researching some of the Memphis sites, it was apparent that Gunnell looked very good in the spring.  I think he would have been welcomed back with open arms by Memphis. They just have a very good QB in Hennegan and Gunnell’s saw UNT as a place he could start right away. 

    Coach Henigan's boy, from right here in Denton (Ryan).    Would've been nice to have kept him home.

    The Raiders schedule was announced today, they have a home game on the afternoon of 9/18.  I'm guessing that means we'll have a day game there on the 17th.

    That’s impossible.    Don’t you remember the Big West days?   This game is definitely gonna start at 8:00PM West Coast time!!

    Having Faulkner playing safety in the bowl game because Sanders chose to sit was a big blow to the defense. If he and Torrey play I have zero doubt we win that game.

    I thought Faulkner played fairly well during the season when he was in, but he was certainly exposed in the bowl game.  Not his best game, for sure, and I bet he'd tell you the same.

    As for the run game getting going if Torrey played...  I dunno.  I think it would have been better, for sure, but I don't know if Torrey would have gone over 60yds the way Miami, OH was playing us.   When Aune was the leading rusher at 28yds (and CFB includes yards lost in sacks in a QBs rushing stats), that's pretty bad. 
    I just think they knew our run scheme and defended it well.

    #1- SL has NEVER, not once, proven he can win when it truly matters 

    #2- Despite having what seems like 30 different QB's on this roster over the last half decade, we still don't have one that makes you say "yeah, that's the guy!" during games

    #3- A WR room that has been full of "potential" for a while now still hasn't come close to matching what we had with Darden, Bussey, and Guyton

    #4- While we bring in transfers from FCS and D2 schools, our opponents bring in transfers from the P5 ranks.   You can say until you're blue in the face that people were "productive" at lower levels, but talent is talent is talent (if you don't believe this, watch film of games from years past).  

    #5- I can't quite put my finger on the exact reason, but this feels like the least excited I've been for a season in a long time.   Like, less excited than the last few years of Dickey or McCarney eras.  

    To jump on point #4, we've seen this play out in front of our eyes already.   
    Guys like Enoch Jackson & a healthy Tommy Bush were productive, heavy-minute, players for us last season.  Whereas guys like Landon Maston, Dawson Nobriga, Braelon Hill, Sean-Thomas Faulkner, & Kameron Hill (D2 & FCS transfers) only provided depth.

  6. I expect the UTEP game to be a close loss, but I would not be overly-surprised to see NT to dig out a win if things fall their way (win the turnover battle).   SMU will be a shellacking... 
    The game that should show us a trajectory for the season will be going out to UNLV.    If NT can go on the road, rebound from those first two games, and win big, maybe this season can be successful.   Drop that game out there, and we're in serious trouble.

    Don’t remember Armani Flash or Marcus Smart ever playing for the Mean Green 🤣

    "Armani Flash" is his Twitter handle.

    Marcus Smart was recruited here pretty hard back when he was at FM Marcus.  It was Coach Jones's last season here, and he just landed that class of Mitchell, JWilliams, Jones, & Robinson, plus bringing Roger Franklin home... NT had assembled somewhat of a DFW All-Star team, so it wasn't just a pipe dream to land him at the time.
    He and Phil Forte attended a few games at the Super Pit, but they both wound up at OKSt.

  8. Once upon a time, back when Ray still roamed the backyard of a legendary NT QB, one word was more offensive than all others around GMG.com. That word is included in the word "quite".  It was determined that no NT player could be called by this abomination of a word, regardless of how that player left the program.  I myself, even succumbed to this malpractice (Vizza absolutely was one).
    So the powers that be (ahem: @Cerebus) decided to implement a text replacement for whenever this word was typed.  In it's stead, "Transfer" would be substituted.
    However, the board's software was unable to parse other words that might contain that specific sequence of letters, and would simply replace those 4 letters no matter when they appeared.   This obviously led to much confusion when using the word "quite".  And we all had hearty laughs.   If you hover over "quite", you'll see why it would be funny when thinking on how the AKA word would sit in the middle of a sentence.

    Chris Jones, Tony Mitchell, Armani Flash, Javion Hamlet, and Marcus Smart. We set. 

    I doubt Chris would consider himself one to "Bleed Green".   Armani Flannigan is an interesting name.  I know he was playing in Europe recently....   

    Marcus Smart?!?!  Wrong Green.

    Good interview with a legendary coach. I think it would be fun this coming season, following a good defensive stand, to do a take off of the "NORTH......TEXAS" cheer:  "COACH......BENNETT".

    If we never cheered "MASON! ... FINE!"   There is no possible way I'd cheer for a dude who only has 1 foot in the door here and is likely gone after this season whether we win 4 games or 9.

    C'mon people.
