  2. I am excited about the new coach but I won't have season tickets to come see what he produces. I welcome him to UNT. I will warn him about the ineptness of our athletic department. And tell him that he will have generate financial support and media attention for the program because the AD simply doesn't care or doesn't know how. (Just once I would like an AD to be honest with us and tell the masses what it will take financially get where we want to be). In so many negative ways what is going on at UNT mirrors exactly the same problem the pro team 35 miles south has. But I relent and simply ask the fans that have a problems with people who think like UNT90, KingDL1, and myself a few questions. I want to you consider these carefully if the next football coach fails 1. What did we accomplish by hanging on to RV in 2015 2. If RV is not one the main contributing factors to the mess that is our athletic department then what are these factors and how do we fix them? 3. Has RV generated strong and diverse financial support for the program? 4. Since the completion of the facilities improvements what exactly has RV done well? 5. Does Athletic Department have a mission statement and are they living up to it?
  3. Most of the candidates we have discussed on the forum already have jobs. I think getting someone desirable who already has a job to come here is a long shot here with so many other vacancies available. I believe if they are to hire a coach and keep RV they should hire someone now, to try to salvage whatever they can from the years recruiting class. When Pep Hamilton was fired from the Colts it got me to thinking. Could we put together a pretty good staff right now of all out-of-work coaches? I don't know about Pep Hamilton as a head coach but I would love him to replace Canales as assistant head coach/offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. And if we ran a pro-style offense that could be a recruiting tool for quarterbacks who have serious NFL aspirations. The spread is popular but if you can't master some the basic pro-style passing progressions you won't be a success in the NFL just ask (plug in Heisman Trophy candidate/winner spread offense running QB name here). Pep Hamilton https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pep_Hamilton Please limit you responses to coaches who are currently out of work. Offensive Coordinator: ? Defensive Coordinator: ? Quarterbacks Coach: ? Wide Receivers Coach: ? Defensive Line Coach: ? Offensive Line Coach: ?
  4. Please can start speaking truthfully about the hiring of Dan McCarney? Look I like him as much as the next Mean Green fan but let get a few things straight about him. He arrived at UNT with losing 56-85 overall and 27-68 conference record as head coach. That is losing anyway you slice it. Yes, Iowa State has the deck stacked against them in the Big 12. But you can say they same thing about all the other old Big 12 North Division programs outside of Nebraska and Missouri. Mac arrived with great fan fare and energy here and all Mean Green Fans appreciated that. But there was little substantive in his resume as a head coach that should have made us so optimistic. Mac has deep roots in the Big 10 Conference region and that is part of the reason he had some the success he did at Iowa State. Therefore, I think it is a huge mistake to dismiss the value of experience in Texas in favor of just a young hot up and comer with Texas ties. I for one want BOTH an experienced leader with hot shots under him. Instead of Kendall Briles we need to be looking for our 'Art Briles'. And if our Art Briles leaves us we may end up promoting our 'Gary Patterson' from the staff he leaves behind. (If you are not following me look up Patterson's history at TCU). TCU had long journey getting back into the mix with the other big programs in the state and our journey will be even more difficult. I held my peace before and after McCarney was hired, I won't do that this time. Bring a coach under the age of 35 in this toxic situation is just a recipe for failure. So if we hire a 30-ish or younger bright star don't be surprised if it is another Dodge like situation 3 years from now.
  5. To add insult to injury, Smatresk essentially agrees with RV in that the voices of displeasure are not "truly representative" of the masses. So much for Smatresk being our last hope. http://ntdaily.com/attendance-on-the-decline-in-major-sports-at-north-texas/
  6. The only way now UNT can really compete for talented coaches now with 7 already open at this point is to have a different pitch. We can't money whip a good coach into coming here. We don't have the money now and we don't have an athletic department that knows how to campaign for the money necessary to do that. The team that is well known and available right now is the Spurrier family. You need 5 years from Steve (he is 70 now so longer than would not be wise). The names by themselves would project a stability and commitment to building something great. I think they would be interested because getting UNT to win CUSA will be much easier than trying to win an SEC title. And if South Carolina doesn't want Scott or Steve Jr as head coach. I don't believe they would be a good fit for any other positions open now except UCF. Also I think they would want to steer clear of Miami because it doesn't fit the profile of the Southern Universities they are used to dealing with. I could see Steve Jr coaching here 3 years winning 2 CUSA west division titles and moving on to a SEC school. Steve Sr. hires someone else from his coaching tree and glides off into retirement. It all just a dream and very unlikely here at UNT but that is all I have now. Can you guys think of an AD & Head Coach "Team" you would like to come to UNT. Keep in mind this "team" need to have a family connection or existing working relationship.
  7. http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2015/10/14/9530335/ncaa-football-coach-jobs-best I think this will be the most important topic for football. The UCF position just came open and that may move us down to number 6. I thought the Washington State job was going to open up but it looks like they have some positive traction up there. What dominos will fall at the end of the season? Could we find ourselves without a coach before the New Year? I think that is quite possible. And given that there will be a lot of competition for coach talent where the hell is our AD? He should be leaking through all the back channels that UNT is ready to pay the next head coach 1 million per year. And if we aren't prepared to do that, should be campaigning for grass roots level money.... Wait, wait he can't do that because his track record gives him no credibility here. Why no one above the AD seems not to get thisI will never know. I am extremely pessimistic about the quality of head coach we will be able to get. This recruiting season is toast so I don't think that should play into the time table at all. In a perfect world RV would have be fired already. And we would have a committee looking for AD and head coaches who already have working relationships with each other and hire them at the same time. First interview question to an AD candidate. "Who would you bring in as Head Coach of Mean Green Football and why?" So here is my question for Mean Green fans how would you rank the available FBS head coaching positions?

  9. Love this quote from Rick Villarreal (update on UNT-LSU game status): “If LSU wants to get on a plane, fly down here and play on Saturday, I’m sure we can work that out.” Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2012/08/love-this-quote-from-rick-villarreal-update-on-unt-lsu-game-status.html/
