  1. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Arkansas' fans left Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Saturday evening still not sure they had witnessed the home team lose to North Texas 44-17. One way of showing their displeasure on Saturday was loud boos at end of first half and when Cole Kelley threw his fourth interception of the day. The loudest cheer of the day may have been when Connor Noland entered the game. Following the game, Chad Morris talked to the media. A trio of players were also brought into the media room. Santos Ramirez, Jared Cornelius and Hjalte Froholdt were the three players made available
  2. FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - North Texas used six interceptions to defeat Arkansas 44-17 on Saturday in Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Starting quarterback Cole Kelley was 16 of 35 passing for 185 yards with four interception. He did run for a 5-yard touchdown. The Arkansas fans in attendance booed loudly after halftime and then when Kelley threw his fourth interception in the third quarter. Wide receiver Jared Cornelius took exception to the boos. "It's really easy to pick one guy to point a finger at," Cornelius said. "For the majority of the first half I think that guy was Cole at least by

  4. Morris is getting serious looks at Tennessee... if he leaves it would not shock me to see them go after Seth. UNT (9-3): Too high for Seth Littrell? Maybe if you aren’t paying attention. Littrell will be on a lot of short lists this time next year, just watch. In year one at a moribund program he got the Mean Green to a bowl game. In year two he has them playing for a conference title. An off-shoot of the Mike Leach coaching tree, Littrell had success at Kansas (no, seriously, Kansas used to be respectable), Tech, Arizona, and UNC before heading to Denton. With an athletic department fi
  5. Last season, the Coogs won 13 games, including a 38-24 victory over No. 9 Florida State in the Peach Bowl. The only teams to win more games than Houston last year - CFP champion Alabama and runner-up Clemson. Their path to the Peach Bowl also included a 49-28 rout over Chad Morris and the rebuilding 2-win SMU Mustangs, and in a recent conversation with the Rotary Club of Houston, Herman threw out this jab against the Mustangs: 'We understand the price of a championship. That price is the same for Alabama, as it is for Ohio State, as it is for the University of Houston...In order to p

  7. On facing North Texas: “It’s their opener. I know those guys will be extremely ready to go, especially opening up the season. I’m going to challenge our guys with the embarrassment that they had up there. Watching that game from last year was very disheartening. Our guys will be excited about getting back on the field for a Saturday night game and perform in front of our fans and our crowd, which I thought was outstanding.” On if having a bye week to open the season gives North Texas an advantage: “I guess it’s a little bit of an advantage because they got to see the personnel we have on the f
  8. On February 25, 1987, Chad Morris was an 18-year-old senior at a high school in Edgewood, Texas, a small town 60 miles east of Dallas. That may seem like an arbitrary slice of minutiae with which to begin a story, but this happens to be a story about the football program at Southern Methodist University, and it is pretty much impossible to talk about SMU without referencing February 25, 1987, the day an NCAA enforcement official got so stressed out while announcing that the Mustangs would receive the proverbial death penalty that he literally fainted on the spot. Three decades later, February
  9. Has anyone thought about the irony of SMU hiring former high school coach Chad Morris and our hiring of Todd Dodge back 9 years ago? In familiarizing myself with Morris and the direction he intends to take in the SMU rebuilding project, I took in some videos and articles around his introduction to the SMU community and the media in general. I swear to you, you could have taken clips and sound bytes from 9 years ago when Dodge was announced as HC at UNT and matched them up exactly with the Morris talking points. "I'm a Texas high school coach first and proud of it" or "We've had 100's of area h
  10. After a brutal 1-11 season last year for the SMU Mustangs, new head coach Chad Morris is looking to bring a new brand of excitement to the Hilltop. Here’s 10 things you may not know about the new face of SMU football… 1. All about the numbers The head coach went to school at Texas A&M, graduating in 1992 with a mathematics degree. 2. #PonyUpTempo The guy really, really likes his Red Bull. Don’t believe us? His Twitter feed is full of pictures of Red Bull cans and #Tempo hashtags. 3. Climbing the coaching ladder Morris had an Art-Briles-like career path. He began as a high school head coach
  11. Chad Morris is into fixing things. So when he arrived at SMU last December as the school’s new football coach, he got to work right away and convinced his bosses to cough up more than $1 million for facility upgrades. Morris’ decorating touch can be seen throughout Gerald J. Ford Stadium, from upgraded weight room equipment to new video and audio technology, wall graphics highlighting the program’s three national titles, wood panels in place of dingy carpet, and an enhanced player’s lounge. In the coming months, the school expects to announce plans for a stand-alone football building that will
  12. One of the big offseason stories in Texas college football has been the arrival of new head coaches at SMU (Chad Morris) and Houston (Tom Herman). Each comes with an impressive pedigree and landed at schools with some inherent advantages due to location and something to sell as a member of the American Athletic Conference. Whether or not it’s true, each will tell recruits the American is the best conference in America outside of the Power Five. I bring it up because Dave Campbell’s Texas Football made the argument that the pair will end up ruling Texas college football outside the power league
  13. A couple of days ago, UNT and SMU went head-to-head in a recruiting battle for East Texas running back/safety Kevin Johnson. Johnson committed to SMU, which in the large scheme of things wasn’t a huge issue for the Mean Green. UNT has plenty of good running backs coming back next season from veteran Antoinne Jimmerson to sophomores Jeffrey Wilson and Willy Ivery. What could get interesting is the bigger picture. Just to be clear, UNT is doing a good job recruiting and building relationships with Texas high school coaches. There were a ton of high school staffs that came through dur
  14. Quarterback Quick take: Matt Davis appears to have the edge on true freshman Ben Hicks at the quarterback position. While Hicks is a special talent and will almost certainly be the guy down the line, he looked the part of a first year player at the spring game. Meanwhile, Davis appears to have made strides from last season and is a good fit in Chad Morris’ offense. Remember, Davis led SMU in both passing and rushing last season. The former four-star recruit has potential, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Morris mold him into a pretty darn good football player. With that said, Hicks wil
  15. One of the great pastimes for UNT fans is to watch what is going on at SMU, the Mean Green’s neighbor to the south. Morris There are plenty of good reasons that’s the case. UNT and SMU compete for media attention, fans and, yes, recruits. There are a few SMU fans who will deny that is the case, but it has been the truth for a long time. I bring it up because it is going to be very interesting to see how the next few weeks go in terms of recruiting, not to mention the next few seasons after SMU hired former Texas high school coach and Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris.
  16. It’s safe to say that Southern Methodist University head coach Chad Morris sees the potential in coaches on the high school level. After all, he was a high school football coach himself. After being named SMU’s coach, Morris plucked Claude Mathis away from DeSoto to serve as his running backs coach, and Morris has just selected another coach from the college ranks, according to the Dallas Morning News. Mark Smith, coach at Hurst L.D. Bell since 2009, will join Morris’ staff as the Director of Recruiting and an offensive analyst. Read more: http://texashsfootball.com/2015/01/morris
  17. Nebraska: Bo Pelini has been let go. AD Shawn Eichorst has announced that he decided to make a change and informed Bo this morning. SMU: Chad Morris is headed to Dallas. All will be officially official soon enough. We dont expect any full-time assistants from Clemson to join Morris at SMU. We hear his staff is likely have a heavy Texas influence (as it should). Well keep you posted Read more: http://footballscoop.com/the-scoop/
  18. Former UNT assistant coach Van Malone will be announced as SMU’s defensive coordinator some time in the next few days, a source close to Malone said Tuesday afternoon. Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2014/12/former-unt-assistant-to-join-smu-staff.html/
  19. Editors note: this guy can flat out recruit and was the best recruiter on the Dickey staff back when he was here. Malone’s experience recruiting in the Lone Star State is likely a factor in his name being connected to the SMU opening. Prior to Malone’s two-year stint in Tulsa, he coached defensive backs one season at North Texas and four seasons at Texas A&M. The Cowboys’ pass defense has allowed an average of 282.8 yards through the air per game this season, a mark that ranks No. 120 nationally. read more: http://newsok.com/media-report-oklahoma-state-cornerbacks-coach-va
