UNT lands key recruit Raveon Hoston!


Recommended Posts

"Didn't I read somewhere that his only other offers were FCS and D2? Sooooooo....This should seem like a no-brainer unless Cali is his home and he wants to stay there."

As per Vito, Washington State has jumped into the mix for Hoston and sound pretty serious about it.

No bueno. Well, this is an opportunity to win a recruit over a sub par P5 team.

9-4 overall, 6-3 in the PAC 10. Hardly subpar. Pirate doing pirate things. 

On the bright side, they did also lose to Portland St... But by 56 less points than UNT.

20-29 under Leach. 

Before Leach arrived...9-40 under Wulff. 

29-69 since 2008. That rivals our kind of suckness. 

Last year's 9-4 was their best year since 2003. Coincidentally it was their first winning season since 2003 as well. Sub par might be an overestimation on my part.

So you think that was a one and done for Leach? You think Mike Leach is Dan McCarney? Then this can't mean good things for UNT's offense, considering they hired their OC from this same underachieving team. And that OC's entire one year of on the field coaching experience happened at Wash St. Oh the horror!

This isn't 2010 Wash St.

Isn't UNT the team that suffered the worst loss in college football history to Portland St last year?

I'm just talking what is. You are talking what you think it will be.

You know, maybe following college football just isn't your thing...

Because Washington St historically is garbage and I pointed it out? And 90 comes in and states an extreme outlier? Washington State to the Pac12 is what Iowa St is to the Big12. Leach will get the boot...he almost got it last year but he saved his season. He'll get it eventually. Some places are just difficult to win at and Wash St is one of those places. 

Point is..we need this guy to be in green next year. Not in red playing in a wanna-be P5 stadium that uncomfortably seats 35K.

A lot of those defenders that quit on their coaches last year are no longer here and hopefully many of those that are still here will lose their spot to a more capable player.

An unfortunate combination of having a team lay down against a capable FCS team, as demonstrated by their win over a P5 bowl team in the same year.

No, you are talking what was. Washington St was a good team last year that won a bowl game over an ACC Opponent, not what they were in 2010.

What they were in 2010? Or how about 2011-2014? Or 2004-2010? You're wrong and that's OK. We've had 1 winning season in the last decade. They've had 1 winning season in the past 13 years. Their 1 just happened to come last season. 1/13 is what is, not what was. Just like 1/10 or 11 is what is for us at North Texas.

When Wazzou has a good coach, they are usually tough. Mike Price made Wazzou tough for a long time and they went to two Rose Bowls in his tenure, as well as defeating Texas in the Holiday Bowl when Mack had the Longhorns rolling as a top ten program.

Mike Leach is following in those footsteps. He took over the worst P5 program at its lowest and has methodically gotten them better, just like he did at Tech. Hopefully, these Leach disciples, Littrell and Harrell, can follow his same path here in Denton. But when you take over the worst of anything, it takes a while to get it fixed, which is usually about three years if the coach gets things right.

Well, if we're talking about current recruits, aren't we talking about current results?

I think you're both right.  WSU is historically a sub-par P5 team.  But their most recent record is to the contrary and is what will factor in the heaviest for the current recruiting cycle.

The excitement that Leach generated in Lubbock could potentially validate any "we're on the up-and-up" claim that Leach tells recruits.

      Mike Ekeler, an excitable sort, often prefaces his football stories with phrases such as "Think about this" and "This is the greatest story of all time."
      In January, the 48-year-old native of David City was named special teams coordinator at North Texas. His Mean Green players soon will learn about Ekeler's storytelling prowess, if they haven't already. 
      Think about this one: During the spring of 2010, when Ekeler coached Nebraska's linebackers, he recalls the Husker defense plodding through a terrible Friday practice. So, Ekeler had a message for his linebackers before a scrimmage the next morning.
      Not an official marathon, mind you. In this case, Ekeler had an NU football staff member drop him off on Interstate 80 about 27 miles from Memorial Stadium. It was 90 degrees. The good news: The wind was at his back. The bad news: It was all of 90 degrees. He made it to the 21-mile mark, but not the full 27. We'll get to what happened in a second.
      Read the rest of the story here:  https://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/sipple/steven-m-sipple-the-story-of-mike-ekelers-aborted-27-mile-run-on-i-80/article_01d10c2f-8fd4-5bd3-8e00-56f72aa57ea7.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

      When Mike Ekeler was playing linebacker at Kansas State University under Hall of Fame coach Bill Snyder in the early 90s, he set a record.
      But you won’t find his name scribbled in the NCAA history books anywhere.
      “When I played a hundred years ago, I set the NCAA record for having more fun than anyone,” Ekeler said jokingly. “When I got into coaching, I said I was going to enjoy it more than anybody.”
      He seems to be living up to his promise.
       
      Ekeler’s antics have caused just about everyone to take notice — including his boss. Head coach Seth Littrell knows the excitement Ekeler brings to the field and summed it up in two words.
      “Energy and passion,” Littrell said. “He’s very sharp. He understands what he’s looking for and understands the scheme.”
      Without Littrell, Ekeler would not have come to Denton. The hiring of Littrell is one of the main reasons Ekeler decided to call North Texas his new home.
      With a resume that has coaching gigs at the University of Southern California, University of Oklahoma, Louisiana State University, Indiana University, Nebraska University, and most recently, the University of Georgia, there is little doubt Ekeler could have landed just about anywhere in the country he wanted to go.
      But coaching is a job for a people person, and Littrell knew just the person to call to fill his defensive coordinator void.
      His former colleague was sold — and ready to join the Mean Green.
      “I’m 100 percent standing here today because of Seth Littrell,” Ekeler said. “I think he’s an unbelievable football coach and a great person. I believe in the guy.”
      Despite a powerhouse pedigree featuring some of the most renowned football programs in the nation, one thing mattered above all else to Ekeler.
      “I’ve worked at some of the greatest schools history-wise in the game,” Ekeler said. “But what it boils down to is people. You can be at the University of Georgia and be miserable if you’re working with shitty people. I really enjoy my work environment and the players here.”
      In just six short weeks, Ekeler has turned what was the eighth-worst defense in the Football Bowl Subdivision last year into a stone wall in the red zone.

      DENTON - There are a lot of factors when considering the career of a college football coach. Success on the field, success in the classroom for your student-athletes, hirings, firings and the excitement each of those may bring to a fan base. 

      What isn’t always thought about is the effect those hirings and firings have on not only the coach but his family, and the remainder of the staff’s families.
