  1. Reporter5 Views Quick Hits: Five observations from the football spring game Reece Waddell | Senior Staff Writer @ReeceWaddell15 On Saturday, April 23, the North Texas football team took the field for its annual spring game. Here are five observations from the contest. New quarterbacks show improvement Graduate quarterback Alec Morris showed his value in his first appearance at Apogee Stadium, proving he is a clear upgrade from anyone the Mean Green lined up under center in 2015. Morris made the most of his staunch 6-3, 233-pound frame and was not a
  2. 1). I was pleasantly surprised with the turnout. I was shocked to see the parking lots mostly full. We ended up having to park in the Victory lot. I do think there were some other events going on, perhaps a softball game etc that contributed to this. My point is they had the greek letters out, there was some limited tailgating and a pretty decent group walking up. It was a nice day, hot in the sun and many of the fans took to the upper level seats which remained in the shade. The Talons managed the canon very effectively and it was damn loud. Plenty of concessions open, no lines, no na
  3. I just got a robocall from North Texas Head Football coach Dan McCarney... but when he started talking, it sounded an awful lot like Seth Littrell. He even introduced himself as Seth Littrell. I don't know who to trust anymore.
  4. Head football coach Littrell hoping to turn Mean Green around Reece Waddell | Senior Staff Writer @ReeceWaddel15 It did not take long for Mean Green students, fans and even football players to begin drawing comparisons between fictional football coach Eric Taylor from the television series “Friday Night Lights” and new Mean Green head coach Seth Littrell. In a state where football might as well be a religion in some towns, like fictitious Dillon, Texas, Littrell and his imaginary counterpart share many of the same coaching experiences, like turning around programs some had l
  5. Football team changing format for annual spring game this weekend Reece Waddell | Senior Staff Writer @ReeceWaddell15 As the month of April winds down, many college football programs across the country begin to prepare for their annual spring game – an intra-squad scrimmage that pits members of the same team against one another. In the past, North Texas has split its roster into two teams, green and white, and played the game like any regular contest by keeping score, having a clock, and even having referees throwing flags for penalties. That will not be
  6. I know it's just the spring game, but I'm all in for coach Littrell so I'll be there. Let's give him a warm welcome!
  7. Good day, great weather... here are some brief thoughts: - Wow #5 Alec Morris the quarterback impressed the hell out of me. Powerful arm, great touch on the ball... he's the QB we always wanted but never had. Looks like a leader. He's got great size. I like how he wears the lineman,manly-type shoulder pads as opposed to the Garo Yerpremian ones Mini wore. Guy has an attitude and he seemed to be having a lot of fun out there today. - It's interesting to see Littrell (wearing a grey shirt and whistle) and Harrell work together with the offense. It's a very rhythmical thing - the
  8. I have a sneaking suspicion that Littrell and company would not have parted ways with DaMarcus had there not been another QB they had in their back pocket. My guess would be this might be a preferred walk-on transfer who could even be enrolled at UNT now, making him eligible to participate in Spring training. Or perhaps, this could be another graduate transfer type situation that shows up in the Fall. I think it would be a player who has experience in the spread offense. I just don't see them letting DaMarcus go without knowing they had other options. I think this will become know
  9. DENTON – Mean Green head coach Seth Littrell’s coaching staff is complete as he’s announced the hirings of Mike Ekeler, Troy Reffett, Derrick LeBlanc, Nate Brown, Zack Womack and Shane Elder on Wednesday. Ekeler is the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, Reffett is the assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator, LeBlanc is the defensive line coach, Brown will coach cornerbacks, Womack is the head strength and conditioning coach and Elder is assistant athletic director for football operations. Mike Ekeler Ekeler spent the last two seasons as inside linebackers
  10. 6-1 195 lb running back from Lone Grove high school in Oklahoma. Decommitted from Arkansas State (1/13/16). 247 listing offers from Nebraska, Ohio and Tulsa.

  11. 1). What to do with Mr. Chumley? Will he stay at QB or move to another position and if so, what position would he be best suited for. 2). Is Quinn Shanbour really going to get a shot at QB this time? Will Littrell really give this kid a chance? What about Conner Means? Will Littrell many eating up practice snaps like Chico last year or settle on 3-4 like most? 3). What happens to the tight ends on the roster and the tight end position in general? Littrell says he wants 14 scholarship WR's. Will the tight end be as predominate as it was with Mac?
  12. The last University of North Texas head coach to leave the school with a winning record was Hayden Fry. That was in 1978. Seth Littrell intends to change that. Littrell, the Muskogee product and former University of Oklahoma fullback, is just over a month into his first head coaching gig, and while every college football program has its own unique challenges, UNT’s got so bad last year Dan McCarney was fired midway through the season — right after a game. In its first season in Conference USA, McCarney’s 2013 Mean Green squad went 9-4 and p
  13. I might have missed an announcement, but since KP left do we know of anybody's names floating around for DL coach? Roark from UTSA would be nice but it seems quiet on that front. I understand recruiting is the main focus as of now, but wouldn't it make sense to have a full staff for recruiting? Especially at one of the most important positions on the field?
  14. Seth Littrell never dreamed of being an NFL player. From his first year playing football as a kid, he wanted to be a coach. At 37 years old, the new North Texas head coach is one of the youngest head coaches in FBS, but he says that focus on coaching gave him a quick start. “Growing up, my grand-dad owned a car dealership, and my dad and brother were with him. My father loved it. We’d always talk, and my father said, ‘If I could do it over again, I would have coached,’” Littrell told CoachingSearch. “It never really hit me until I was growing up. "I had a 6th grade f
  15. Johnson reportedly waffling: After pledging to TU last month, Alto (Texas) athlete Keenen Johnson has also been considering North Texas following the hiring of Seth Littrell, according to the Denton (Texas) Record-Chronicle. “I am finalizing my decision,” Johnson told the newspaper. “I want to talk it over with my family and take my official visits. I am considering Tulsa and North Texas. I can’t say right now who I am leaning towards more.” read more: http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/tusportsextra/tu-recruiting-notebook-latest-offers-include-sapulpa-rb-dae-williams/art
  16. North Texas is not an easy place to win, but veteran coach Dan McCarney did have some initial success, including a 9-4 record and bowl win in 2013. Following an 0-5 start this fall, though, UNT officials had seen enough, canning McCarney with a 22-32 overall record. North Texas is located in a bountiful recruiting area in the Dallas Metroplex, and the Mean Green has upgraded from the Sun Belt to Conference USA. Seth Littrell has solid experience with fast-paced offenses, spending the past six years as an offensive coordinator at Arizona, Indiana and North Carolina. The Tar Heels re
  17. Shane Elder to North Texas Football Scoop It appears that Littrell has a new member of the football staff in an "off the field" role (Football Operations) , in Shane Elder formerly of UTSA and Texas A&M football programs. Looks like an excellent candidate in an ever-important role.
  18. I found this post on another site and wanted to share. "The skinny on Alec Morris. Why he went under the radar and other info. Allen High School is a 5A school in Texas that graduates classes of over 1200 kids, the talent pool is deep. He might have started as a sophomore, except the senior was a D1 commit to TCU so Alec played JV to get the reps. Allen High School also has a very balanced game, so Alec isn't the focus of our offense every play. We have a running back that that is a D1 commit, and his highlights are also impressive. Several of these highly rated quarterbacks are all the of
