Observations:

Horrible game plan

NT staff obviously overrated their defensive backfield

Worse 3th down pass defense I can remember

Anyone blaming the loss on Fine in this one, is beyond wrong

Both teams got same total yardage

Way too many mistakes by NT

Darden wins returner job, he earned it; but others were horrible

Offensive line still has a long way to go

Despite the lopsided loss, some good performances: Moore, Muhammad, Gardner, Lawrence, Darden  and Fine

Wonder if Baker is rethinking that Littrell contract redo

It is only one game, but this team has a long way to go to even be competitive in CUSA

Agreed the DB play was terrible on 3rd down.. The players of the game as well are spot on, and the OL was still making stupid plays... Darden should be the PR from now on with Darden and E. Johnson on KR.

We fans need to be real with our expectations of this team.. after Lamar we thought way to highly of team. 

This is still mostly the same team from last year (sadly).

YOU thought way too highly of them. I bet you BillySea didn't. Because he understands what the F is going on in recruiting. 

You WANTED to lie to yourself. That lie is exposed. Will contact bye to be exposed next weekend. And will possibly be driven like a steak through your heart in the UAB game.

But keep on being you.

Never believed the hype or anything.. Ive said repeatedly here this is a 6-6 team.. but you were away to miss it.. but keep thinking the end is coming..

I agree GH did a poor job, but at the same time, people are saying how well Fine played. Was Fine calling his own plays?? So GH did a good job on the plays that worked and a crappy job on the ones that didn't ??

This will be lucky to be a 4 win team.

You're right, this will probably be a four win team. And you want to know why?

Because when RV was a total dipshit AD (and it was obvious back in about 2004) you still supported him and he was kept to hire a dipshit like Mac who ran this program into the ground. Only when it was CLEARLY obvious ten years too late did you finally raise a peep about RV. So look in the mirror pal. Because it's guys like you who kept saying RV was doing a great job that allowed him to stick around and royally screw up this program. You and your ilk were the original 17.

There were only a few people who knew what the RV/Dickey drama was back then, and most of them them knew the wrong person got run off.

Not just Billy, but also Cooley, who used to post.  He was too honest about the recruiting for most people's liking.

SMU bent us over like an FCS school because that's mainly what has been recruited here.

You simply can't be recruiting a roster half full of guys who didn't have even one other FBS offer.  Littrell has not changed the recruiting here.  It's hurting us.

Damn...that's just a colossal beat down right here.

UNT 90 was right about the UNT 17 and RV in the end...but that was about ten years too late.

I disagree. The Dickey drama was only part of it. RV couldn't keep his promises, meet his own goals, ran a lousy MGC, was too lazy to create his own marketing ideas so he poached them from other schools, hired lousy coaches for the most part, bombed at the first stadium vote and on and on. It wasn't a big secret.

SMU adjusted after giving up 10 quick points. NT didn't score again until late in the 3rd on the deep pass. Inexcusable, imo. Horrible offensive series after horrible offensive series all the way into 4th. SMU's Defensive staff schooled NTs offensive staff. 

I said it earlier, NT did not get out athleted tonight. Sutton yeah, but no way in hell was SMU better across the board.

Dickey needed to go when he did. Losing was back in a big way, he had the charm of a porcupine, and his offense was a good way to cure insomnia. He provided nothing close to what we needed for the program to move upward from where we had gotten in the years before. Whether that was because of RV or because they couldn't work well together, it's all he said/she said. 

But RV having the insulation of the UNT BOR, then the UNT 17, was the pathetic part of all of this. And it's why we are where we are. Littrell has to get better, but he is our coach now because we didn't have a ton of choices that were any better or more well known.
