  1. ••• We’ve not seen much “live” college football this Fall during the Chinese pandemic & there’s no guarantee what the balance of our season will be now so.........maybe good Mean Green football memories from these videos will help negate negative ones that can crop up during this COVID-19 idleness? •••The year was 2017 & the Mean Green traveled to Ruston to be La Tech’s opponent at their Homecoming game. GMG!

  5. Texas A&M’s new offensive coordinator might never call a play, but there’s a lot to like about Jimbo Fisher’s hire of Darrell Dickey. The 58-year-old Dickey comes from a football family. He played at Kansas State for his father, Jim Dickey. His brother, Jim Dickey Jr., was a high school football coach in Texas, including Crosby from 1994-2001. Darrell Dickey also knows the Lone Star state, having been an assistant SMU, Texas State and UTEP. He also was head coach at North Texas from 1998-2006, and he started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Texas A&M in 1985 under Jackie Sherrill. All that experience seemingly helped Dickey find his niche as the offensive coordinator at Memphis. The Tigers are 37-13 in the last four seasons under former head coach Justin Fuente and current coach Mike Norvell, a pair of offensive minds on the rise. Fuente got hired at Virginia Tech after turning Memphis around, and Norvell recently opted to stay after getting a new $13-million deal through 2022. Fuente called his own plays at Memphis, just as Norvell has, but with plenty of help from Dickey, dubbed “Norvell’s eye in the sky.” Fisher called his plays at Florida State and you’d expect him to do the same at A&M, so Dickey can become “Jimbo’s eye in the sky.” What Fisher and Dickey need to do is sign or develop the kind of quarterbacks both have worked with — Fisher had Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and Memphis had Paxton Lynch and Riley Ferguson. read more: http://www.theeagle.com/aggie_sports/cessna-dickey-as-new-offensive-coordinator-a-solid-hire-for/article_e246dcba-df0d-11e7-9e2e-979bd60258d4.html
  6. From Horns 247 article: We're hearing SMU’s Chad Morris is headed to Arkansas to replace Bret Bielema, and multiple well-connected sources at SMU have told Horns247 that Texas defensive coordinator Todd Orlando is under consideration to replace Morris. Along with Orlando, SMU interim head coach Jeff Traylor, who was an assistant at Texas under Charlie Strong for two seasons (2015, 2016), North Texas head coach Seth Littrell, UTSA head coach Frank Wilson and former Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin are among the possible replacements to fill the vacancy, sources said. read more: https://247sports.com/college/texas/Article/Texas-Longhorns-defensive-coordinator-Todd-Orlando-on-short-list-to-replace-Chad-Morris-at-SMU-111830399
  7. Oh yeah, that would probably be the highlight of my life (to return for the bowl game),” Wilson said. “I’m a go-getter. I don’t let things bring me down. I don’t like to stay down. I’m built to get back up out of any situation. That’s obviously how I want to leave, but if I can’t get back, oh well. If I come back, I would love to and it would be the joy of my life, but if I don’t it’s not going to kill me.” read more: http://www.etfinalscore.com/ET-College+Sports/315029/elkharts-wilson-wants-to-return-for-unt-bowl-game
  8. ...and it doesn't look like they will land Mahlzan from Auburn. ----------------------------- Interim Athletics Director Julie Cromer Peoples said DHR International was brought on to help with the football coaching search last weekend. Cromer Peoples delivered a termination letter to Bielema following the Razorbacks' 48-45 loss to Missouri last Friday night and met with assistant coaches the following morning. On the night of Bielema's firing, Cromer Peoples said there would not "be a formal search committee for the process." It is believed to be the first time a search firm has been used to hire an Arkansas football coach. "With the number of vacant coaching positions in our league and around the nation, it is important that we move forward expeditiously and efficiently in finding the next head football coach for the Arkansas Razorbacks," Cromer Peoples said in a statement. According to the university, private funds are being used to pay for both search firms. The UA will pay Korn Ferry $75,000 to conduct the vetting process, but the cost paid by the Razorback Foundation to DHR International is not yet known. Oregon State is paying DHR International up to $200,000 to help fill its vacant head coaching position, according to The Oregonian. According to its website, DHR International is one of the world's five largest search firms. The company's sports division includes former Wisconsin Athletics Director Pat Richter and Glenn Sugiyama, a former board of directors member of the Chicago Bulls and former assistant basketball coach at Eastern Michigan who Forbes magazine called "one of the most influential men in college athletics" in 2012. DHR International's 2016 coaching searches resulted in North Texas hiring Seth Littrell and Toledo hiring Jason Candle, according to CBS. Both coaches will coach in conference championship games this weekend. read more: http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2017/nov/28/ua-hires-search-firms-ad-football-coach-searches/

  11. BOCA RATON North Texas head coach Seth Littrell knows firsthand the challenges that come with turning a dismal program around. Two years after inheriting an 11-1 program, Littrell’s Mean Green (9-3, 7-1) prepare to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls (9-3, 8-0) in Saturday’s Conference USA title game. Speaking to the media in a teleconference call on Tuesday, the third-year coach expressed his respect for the job FAU coach Lane Kiffin has done. “I think he’s done an unbelievable job,” Littrell said of Kiffin. “It’s a challenge getting somewhere, building relationships, setting your culture, having your guys buy into it. … It’s a great challenge.” Kiffin and Littrell faced off on Oct. 21, a 69-31 FAU win where the Owls recorded more than 800 yards of total offense. FAU players admitted after the win to being motivated by Littrell commenting that the Owls shouldn’t have scheduled the Mean Green for their homecoming game. read more: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/college-football/north-texas-coach-seth-littrell-praises-lane-kiffin-quick-fix-fau/NMHlUS5ew3a1y5VeA518xJ/
  12. BOCA RATON For the first time since 2008, Florida Atlantic is preparing for postseason play. Though FAU (9-3, 8-0) clinched bowl eligibility on Nov. 3 and a spot in the Conference USA championship game earlier this month, the Owls are now officially getting ready for their first postseason game since a 24-21 win in Detroit over Central Michigan on Dec. 26, 2008 in the Motor City Bowl. FAU completed the fourth 8-0 season in C-USA history with last Saturday’s 31-12 win over Charlotte. Saturday’s C-USA title game pits FAU against North Texas (9-3, 7-1), a team the Owls beat 69-31 on Oct. 21. “I feel like we’ve done a lot, we’ve accomplished a lot,” FAU linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair said. “We’re not where we want to be, but looking back, we’ve done a lot of progress in the summer and even in December when the coaches first got here.” As the Sun Belt conference — FAU’s home from 2004-12 — does not have a championship game, the Owls will be playing in their first FBS title game. Here are some of the key details FAU fans need to know prior to Saturday’s C-USA title game. read more: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/college-football/after-perfect-conference-usa-season-fau-set-for-first-title-game/udHM8yHEcVglqquUBp61KL/

  14. jdaggie2112 3:39p V Since everyone is throwing out names, lol Not a big enough name, BUT remember that name. Due to son, thus my money, going to UNT I went to 6 or 7 UNT ganes the last 2 years and that guy is doing an amazing job. If Texas Tech would have been smart, they would have canned Kliff and grabbed Littrell. A future star in the making in my opinion read more: https://texags.com/forums/5/topics/2909707
