  1. DENTON -- Seth Littrell came to North Texas a year ago with a national reputation as an offensive guru and vowed to "tee it high and let it fly." The path UNT's head coach took to reach that goal seemed a little unconventional, to say the least. Littrell had been on the job just a few days when he handed his offense over to Graham Harrell, a Texas high school and college football legend with a short coaching résumé. Littrell's decision to hire an old friend as his offensive coordinator and play-caller resulted in a few bumpy moments, but it paid dividends overall. UNT will head into the second year of the Littrell era off a turnaround season that came largely out of the chemistry the pair have developed together -- and with their players. "Those two guys have a great relationship," UNT quarterback Mason Fine said. "Coach Littrell respects what Coach Harrell is trying to do. And Coach Harrell will bounce ideas off Littrell. Their attitudes complement each other. Coach Littrell is more laid-back, while Coach Harrell is always yelling. I am very comfortable with both those guys." read more: https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/collegesports/2017/08/22/tandem-seth-littrell-graham-harrell-getting-unt-football-back-track
  2. http://lamarcardinals.com/news/2017/8/14/football-a-look-at-the-2017-cardinals-qbs.aspx A little hard to swallow, but Lamar brings higher recruited talent to the QB position than we do at this particular time. Looks like they picked up an SMU transfer that can throw deep:
  3. No team in Conference USA made a bigger leap in 2016 than North Texas, which vaulted from one win to five and a bowl game in Seth Littrell's first season. The Mean Green ended up losing in overtime to Army in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, which puts North Texas in the rather enviable position of having momentum to build off of while having a bitter taste to motivate it. For a team with a nice mix of seven offensive and eight defensive starters returning, heading into the second season of new systems, UNT seems well-poised to move forward. "You better have a chip on your shoulder, and you better figure out a way for whatever success you had, whether it's game to game, week to week, or as an entire season, to restart it, refocus, and make sure all your goals are right there in front of you," Littrell said. read more: http://www.elpasotimes.com/story/sports/2017/08/11/unt-looks-build-surprising-success/538824001/

  5. As we are now almost halfway they July It may be a good time to discuss attendance at the opener. There seems to have been a full court press on season tickets and so that is good. There are clearly limits to what this can provide based on past performance etc. Sept 2 6pm is the opener against Lamar. The Cardinals won't bring many but probably more than MUTS. They won't set any visitor attendance records. It's going to be hot as hell. So what can we do to up the attendance to a respectable number given a fairly unknown and lower division opponent? Is there a promotion that could help kick things off in a good footing? I think the student turnout will be decent as they are pretty optimistic at the start of the year. But what about alumni? it just seems to me in years past we might have hoped things would just "work out" and fall into line. Heck I mean we went to a bowl last season and everything so surely there will be a good amount of walk-ups right? Perhaps this is an opportunity to think outside the box. Will we demand full ticket price in the heated corner of the Wing Zone or decide a butt in seat is better than none at all? Will the admin support us and encourage students to attend? Will Denton locals and businesses see a value in showing their face? Here's hoping Wren and company are thinking outside the box on this.
