  1. I have some insight into this player. My nephew went to school with him, and my brother is a season ticket holder at Friendswood and has watched this young man develop since moving there from Clear Springs. Lee is a big athletic player that could be a great weapon as a hybrid type TE/FB. My sources tell me he is the most athletic player on their team. That is quite a statement for a junior that is his size. I'm also told our coaches need to give their sophomore QB a look too.
  2. I like this addition. Always glad to bring in a 3 start lineman. The fact we went to Kentucky for this guy really gives me hope that our coaches are turning over every stone to find the best linemen we can attract. Thank you coaches! Keep up the good work.
  3. I've never been impressed with her, and believe C-USA has lost ground to other G5's under her leadership. Is Wren happy with her leadership? As fans, who supports her and who would rather look elsewhere? If someone knows how to create a poll for this topic, that would be great.
  4. Wish I could say I feel confident about our game tonight, but I don't. We have not won a game in over a month. I have seen nothing recently to make me feel things will change tonight. But, I hope I'm wrong.
  5. These collapses are killing fan enthusiasm. McCasland has a lot to figure out before the conference tournament starts, or we are in for an early exit.
  6. Congratulations Brett. I'm very happy for you.
  7. Thanks for posting this. I had not seen much of his offense on tape. This is very interesting stuff. I'm even more excited about this hire now.
  8. Three. The girls won the A&M tournament too.
  9. I agree. I didn't think we would win this one, but than I didn't think we would have a solid lead for the bulk of the game either. This is discouraging. Feels like the team is quitting out there.
  10. I agree our TE production could be better. But, I think if it were to evolve, the TE position could be better utilized. For the past two seasons I have been thinking we have the talent to adjust our TE's into H-backs. As a hybrid, the player could line up as a full back (to block for the RB or help in pass protection, or chip block and run a hot route on a blitz), or go into motion and end up on either side of the line as a TE (to block for the running game/pass protection, or become an extra receiver). These hybrids really make it tough for defenses to sub in the right personnel, and would offer Fine more options in the passing game, as well as providing more protection in the pocket. I have not seen any evidence of this wrinkle in our new offensive coordinator's scheme while at EWU, but I'm still hoping to see it added to our system.
  11. Very proud of the way our girls are playing. I think we have a good chance of beating #16 Baylor and #13 ULL next week. Great job coach Delong.
  12. This won't be popular to say, but it needs to be said.... Our offensive line was not "solid" as this article suggests. In our 4 loses, the offense only managed to produce a combined 15 points in the second half of those games. And, we all know we have some of the best skill position players in Texas, and certainly in C-USA. Sure some of it was play calling, but a lot of it was also the o-line too. Fine was running for his life way too often. The lines remain a question mark for me. Until I actually see an improvement in the trenches, and see a greater focus on recruiting both offensive and defensive linemen, I will continue to have my doubts about how productive our offense will be. Plantin could be a great addition, and I hope he is. But, don't think he is not enough. We need more higher end talent in the trenches. Games are won and lost at the line of scrimmage.
  13. Very happy for Mr. Cobbs, and North Texas. It is great to see our program at a place where our legends come back to coach, inspire, and lead the next Mean Green generation.
  14. It is a good class. Much better than what we normally see in Denton. I'll grade it a B-. The reason I don't grade the class higher.... -I'm still concerned about our talent in the trenches, and don't know that this class represents a substantial improvement on the lines. In recruiting, I value offensive and defensive linemen above all other positions. -Also, outside of Texas and Oklahoma, we only signed 3 players from the other 48 states. I believe we could be more committed to turning over every rock to find the best talent we can get, especially when it comes to linemen.
  15. Could Littrell look at Scott Linehan to be our next OC? Linehan has a ton of coaching experience, and recently parted ways with the Dallas Cowboys after serving as their OC. He wouldn't need to move his family, and his son is on our team. Thoughts?
