Larry Brown Stepping Down

Recommended Posts


The Larry Brown era at SMU is coming to an end, according to reports Friday morning.

CBS Sports basketball insider Jon Rothstein reports that Larry Brown is stepping down as head coach of the SMU men's basketball program, a move that has to do with the school's unwillingness to offer a long-term contract going forward.

Tim Jankovich is expected to take Brown's place, Rothstein reports. When NCAA sanctions forced Brown off the bench for the first nine games of last season, Jankovich led the team.

So it WAS about the money after all and not just the kids right Larry?

Wish I could share your amusement, but considering who is leading our team and where they have led us, I would take Jank in a heartbeat.

Back on topic, this is typical Larry Brown MO.  Go to a program, build a winner, leave the program, the program ends up with sanctions.  SMU being SMU.  It is sad that the two programs in Texas with the most visible "incidents" of cheating/running a rogue program are tied to the Baptist and Methodist denominations of Christianity.

It has become clear that they should be a better reflection of the teachings of the religion.

Don't laugh. He (Brown) could be Benford's replacement when the new AD is named from within. Then the AD will thumb his nose at SMUt and holler "Gotcha!".

It has become clear that the NCAA will only investigate small, Christian based schools in Texas. UT and A&M are off limits.

      Former North Texas running back Tre Siggers looks as advertised early on in camp. He has experience and will be a great combo with the electric Ulysses Bentley. Siggers had a great game vs SMU in 2019 and a great relationship with assistant HC/RB coach Ra’Shaad Samples. Sample’s dad, Reginald Samples, is a legendary coach in Texas and coached Tre at Duncanville High School. SMU is really excited about its new transfers on offense like Siggers, tight end Grant Calcaterra and QB Tanner Mordecai.

      For simplicity let's look at it like this:   UT and OU are going to the SEC period end of story.  A&M may not like it but they are one vote.   The remaining Big 12 leftovers are going to try their very best to land in a P5 conference.  They are all in a disasterous situation but landing in a P5 at least gives them some semblance of hope.   Kansas has a great basketball program but their football sucks.  Could they be in the Big 10 for hoops sure - they would fit in fine but not in a million years for football. Texas Tech is talking PAC12 but does the PAC12 want their sub par academics?  Do Tech fans want to travel out west?   Baylor is talking ACC, and the ACC may like an entre into Texas but do Clemson and those types of programs want to travel into Waco?    TCU and Baylor may want to be in the PAC 12 with Tech but the PAC 12 in the past has shunned religious programs.  Would they make an exception?   Iowa State and K-State seem to be on an island as Iowa does not want ISU in the B10.  KState is interesting but not sure the B10 is dying to add them.   Big 12 could try to get on the offense and add some programs asap to keep alive.  Say Houston, UCF, USF Memphis, Cincy, SMU -- all of their top targets would be in the AAC.   This is how things look to me now but there are rumblings that the SEC may try to add more like Clemson and FSU...  if that happens wow this whole thing could blow up and we would just have one major conference.   I tend to doubt that the SEC will go there yet because I think they teeter on monopolistic practices and it would involve a lot of political wrangling but at this point who knows.   As is typical for UNT, we have to wait and see what happens with SMU.  If SMU were able to convince the Big 12 to take them (don't kid yourself they have money and political power) and the Big 12 was able to survive it could mean that the AAC adds UNT.   The problem is what is the AAC after being robbed by the Big 12?  Another C-USA?

      On a warm September night at Apogee Stadium, an offense led by then-junior quarterback Mason Fine put up 46 points for North Texas compared to Southern Methodist University’s 26. The aforementioned game was in 2018 and it is the last time North Texas had a significant triumph versus SMU on or off the field.
      Starting with its on-field performance, football has not found a way to make the annual Safeway Bowl close in the last two years, losing 49-27 in 2019 and 65-35 in 2020 — the latter of which was on the Mean Green’s home turf. Giving up a combined 114 points in the last two contests, North Texas’ defense has failed in stopping the likes of sophomore running back Ulysses Bentley IV who posted 19 carries for 227 yards and three touchdowns in 2020. It was the same story in 2019 when former SMU running back Xavier Jones tallied 16 carries for 127 yards and three touchdowns. 
      To make matters worse, however, the damage is not just being done on the ground. The Mean Green were likely ecstatic to see former SMU quarterback Shane Buechele enter the NFL draft this year. In two career games against North Texas, Buechele threw for a combined 636 yards and seven touchdowns while dismantling the Mean Green defense. The lone standout performer for North Texas in either game was former running back Tre Siggers who in 2019 rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown versus SMU. This offseason, Siggers joined the Mustangs via the transfer portal.
