  1. They haven't hired him yet. If I were a Texas fan, I'd hope they look around more. I agree Sark is a lateral move at best. No reason to throw away $24 million just to have a new guy of equal or even lesser quality.
  2. I saw that too. But, I don't know what to make of it. It could be a cultural fit issue. Indiana isn't Texas. LT fans said he is an odd dude, but they loved having him for a DC and didn't want to lose him. Plus, Littrell has to hit a home run with this hire. If he wants to get a high caliber DC, he may have to take a guy with some baggage. Better that than add another buddy for a P5 that lives among the defensive bottom feeders of the FBS.
  3. Herman was only at Texas for 4 season. In that time he went 54-22 with 4 bowl wins... and it wasn't good enough to keep his job. Plus, it will cost Texas $24 million to push him out the door. I love their commitment to high standards. But, I agree. Sarkisian isn't going to get them Big12 championships, and certainly not playoff appearances. They should poach Matt Campbell from Iowa State.
  4. He has been let go. Purdue fires defensive coordinator Bob Diaco after one season (msn.com)
  5. I think I have found our DC.... He was LA Tech DC in 2019 for their 10-3 season when they beat Miami (the U) in the Independence Bowl (They beat us 52-17 in Ruston that season). He has also been a DC at Notre Dame, Nebraska, Cincinnati, Central Michigan, and Purdue this past season. Daico also won the Broyles award when he was the DC at Notre Dame. Plus, he played for Hayden Fry at Iowa. Thoughts? Bob Diaco - Wikipedia He was suggested by an LT fan on the conference board.
  6. You can't hold them accountable on a message board. Just sayin'.
  7. Let sports be about sports, and leave the politics out of it.
  8. I'd like for UNT to take a look at Ron Collins. He seems to have a lot of the qualities we are looking for in a DC. Big time experience as a DC at Colorado. G5 success as a DC at Boise State. He is currently the DC at Ohio, where his 2020 defense held opponents to just 16.7 points per game (10th in the nation), and 389 yards per game. Of course Ohio only played 3 games this season. In 2019, his first season as DC at Ohio, his defense allowed 27 points per game and 401.5 yards per game. Ohio University (ohiobobcats.com) The MAC programs are poor. Certainly we could pay more. I'd look at the USA Today salaries, but they aren't including the G5 programs this year.
  9. North Texas got into C-USA because SMU moved on. That was the only move that opened up a spot for UNT. Judy isn't doing her job well. Unfortunately, many the league's administrators aren't doing a good job either, and they are connected. We appear to the be only C-USA program that has retired the body bag game scheduling philosophy. ODU and a few other programs opening complain about being in C-USA. Plus, the Sun Belt is actually improving, which only magnifies the current shortcomings of C-USA. In my opinion, their is enough blame to go around.
  10. You have posted the truth and asked a very reasonable question... that too many on this board don't want to address.
  11. Today is the first day of the Year, which means it is the first day of the month. You can read the article for free. I'd love to know how many wins you thought North Texas would have at the end of the 2020 season.
  12. Okay. Just curious... how many wins did you predict for this past season? Get Your Rear on the Record review -- Who was right, who was wrong and who was a ridiculous homer in UNT preseason picks | Sports | dentonrc.com
  13. Be careful. I named Stoops in another thread and got a down vote.
  14. I hope Seth has some help picking the next DC. He has a bad track record of hiring for that position.
