  1. Fan bases rarely look at their own program with rational eyes. North Texas is no different. Scour the message boards or social media and you’ll find plenty of Mean Green faithful clamoring for a change at head coach with Seth Littrell in his seventh season in charge. This despite Littrell’s success over the past six seasons. North Texas was awful before Littrell arrived prior to the 2016 season. North Texas had one bowl appearance in the previous 11 seasons and only five total from 2000 to 2015. Littrell has led the group to five in six full seasons in Denton. The Mean Green only won six or more games four times in the 16 seasons during the current century. Littrell has three in six years. North Texas is 3-3 on the season and sit atop the C-USA standings with a 2-0 record. A six-win season seems inevitable for the Mean Green, which means Littrell would be responsible for more bowl berths in seven years than North Texas received in the previous 25 seasons. North Texas hasn’t had this time of sustained success since Hayden Fry was on campus in the 1970s. North Texas will reach a bowl and finish with at least six wins. And then I guess it is on the administration and fan base to decide if it wants to walk into the AAC with its most proven coach in 50 years or start from scratch because they feel like six bowl games in seven seasons is somehow underachieving for a program that went decades without earning any type of post season success. read more: https://www.texasfootball.com/article/2022/10/08/411-from-week-5-of-the-college-football-season-texas-longhorns-favored-in-red-river-rivalry;-mad-max-duggan-takes-reigns-for-tcu?ref=article_preview_title

  3. We are very pleased to welcome back North Texas AD Wren Baker for our summer edition of the podcast. Wren has graciously accepted to spend an hour with us and we are grateful for his time. There is so much to talk about with the realignment, NIL, the new AAC conference, capital projects and many other topics of interest. The podcast should be up for listening this Thursday night (7/14) and we will post links here and on our social media. As always, we welcome your questions for Wren and feel free to list them here in this thread. We will try to cover as many as we can but likely will do a part II later on and use the rest of them then. Thanks again to Wren for taking the time and as always, Go Mean Green!
  4. his is the first entry in the series that will focus on underrated offense across the FBS landscape. North Texas has produced quality play but the consensus is underrating this group. This might come across as a weird inclusion at first as they ranked 88th in EPA per play last season and 80th in success rate but things change, and Seth Littrell’s Mean Green has upside. Ranking first in players per game, the offense should have plenty of plays to support production if things break right. Additions in the transfer portal highlighted by Grant Gunnell could lead this offense to the next level in 2022. Quarterback Adding quarterback Grant Gunnell in the portal can make or break the season. AARP member Austin Aune has been competent for North Texas, but Gunnell gives the offense a ceiling we haven’t seen in Latrell’s tenure. In 2021’s regular season, Aune ranked 109th among qualified quarterbacks in total EPA with -16.66. The loss of Jyaire Shorter hurt the passing offense but ultimately, Aune was holding the unit back. He started or played the majority of snaps in 11 games. In those games, he had more than 240 passing yards once and under 125 yards five times. His average of 181 yards in games, ranks among the worst in the nation for a team that isn’t primarily an option team. To add, Aune had only 9 touchdowns in these 11 games Comparatively, Gunnell has been productive when starting despite limited reps up to this point. In his career, he’s had significant action in five games at a Power 5 level. In the matchups where he’s thrown more than 20 passes, he’s averaging 272 yards and 2 touchdowns per contest. Accomplished as a true freshman and sophomore, Gunnell also played a struggling Arizona team against quality defenses. In 2021, he was injured before the season for the Memphis Tigers, resulting in Seth Henigan’s breakout. It’s a small sample for Gunnell but it’s clear he represents upside for this offense. read more: https://campus2canton.com/underrated-offenses-north-texas/

  6. Despite going to a bowl game, last season felt like it could have been a lot better for the Mean Green. COVID interrupted their season at certain points and by the time the bowl game vs Appalachian State came around, North Texas Football looked worn down from the season and then got blown out. This program has been steadily on the rise under head coach Seth Littrell and expects to have a better ending to their season than the one they suffered last season. North Texas has been defined by high-powered offenses ever since Littrell took over as the head coach and this one might be the most complete one he has had yet. The quarterback has experience and is talented, the backfield is deep and despite losing receiver Jaelon Darden to the NFL, the receiving corps has playmakers around. The big question that has been around the program ever since Littrell started having success was if he would ever find a defense to complement his offenses? That remains to be seen, even in his sixth season as head coach. North Texas football was a program that had struggled to win at a consistent level before Littrell had arrived, but he has taken the Mean Green to a bowl game in four of the five years there and that has raised the expectations. After being one of the most sought-after coaches on the market early during his time at North Texas, some of the shine has worn off of Littrell, and now he finds himself on a bit of a hot seat after his record the past two seasons. This season could be telling on if Littrell can fix the issues that have prevented the program from being better or if it will be more of the same.

  7. UNT - Four of the Mean Green’s starters return from last season, however apart from Jacob Brammer and Manase Mose, it’s still a bit unclear if UNT has all the answers they need upfront from a talent perspective. Even Mose struggled in pass protection last year, as his Pro Football Focus blocking grades have regressed each season. read more: https://www.underdogdynasty.com/2021/6/29/22553517/conference-usa-preseason-position-previews-offensive-line-cusa-alex-mollette-bobby-deharo
