Yep, here we go.  Seth's gambet will hurt us.

Meh, good luck finding an up-and-coming coach who's not already at an Elite Power 5 program who isn't going to entertain the possibility of moving up the coaching ladder.

Yep.   Garrison must not have had much faith in Wren Baker.

Good luck to Mr. Johnson if he decides to leave. Think he’d be missing something pretty special, though.  The journey to greatness can many times be more fun than the actual destination.  

AND.....Fact remains that Seth Littrell did not accept the KSU offer extended to him with conditions he would have had to accept.   He turned down the damn jobs, folks. 

If he was so desperate to leave Denton & make couple more million a year  he would have. Let’s not give him reasons to want to get the hell out of Dodge;  that is, let's not burn our barn down to kill a mouse. 

❇️ We've got a fancy new Indoor Athletic Facility that will have the largest weight room of any Texas Big 12 & SEC school.  Other venues on the way!  Remember when we didn't have all this happening up there?  I do.

GMG!

Celebrate!

I never thought I'd see the day when a kid decommits from my school in order to explore options at my wife's school (Syracuse). House divided now, if it wasn't before.

First time I had seen this quote:  “I am verbally committed, but I am still open in case God offers me another situation that I feel better about,” Johnson said when he committed. “North Texas is where I feel best now.”

I agree with @Big Z

...and this kid was never "committed" spewing crap like that.  Why even "commit"?

He's not, or he would have flipped already.  He took an OV there a LONG time ago, and remained committed to us until just now.

And this (not wanting to sign tomorrow & waiting until February) is not something that just springs up.  If that was his intent for a while, I assume it would have come up in conversation...   I think someone reached out to him with feelers & he wanted to take the bait.   He'll get other offers, and he'll take a different one.   But if he waits around until February and hasn't committed to anyone, then signs with Syracuse, it wasnt because that's where he wanted to be.

I assume we'll see a committment to a P5 school in the Big12 in the coming days.

The real question now, is:

Is this just an outlier? Or are we going to see more decommits over the next two days due to similar reasons?

His original waffling commitment was the anomaly of our class.  The rest of whom seem to be pretty excited about signing.

Maybe.

Do note that he admitted he was still playing the field when he *ahem* "committed" to us months ago.  So he was able to keep us as a backup plan.  Now the day before December signing day, he decommits...which puts the coaches at a disadvantage to find another quality RB to offer the scholly to.  I could well be wrong, but it looks like he's playing his cards so that if his "Miss Right" school doesn't come calling (whoever that is), he'll still have a scholly waiting for him.  So he can keep us as his backup plan still.

Either that, or a school that didn't look as appealing earlier looks very enticing now.

Forget him, go find another running back, we definitely need another one. Easley, will recover and probably start next fall; we need a big running back that has quickness and speed that's at least 200lbs. or more!

It appears NT wanted him to sign tomorrow and he still wants to wait for that magic offer.  That is his decision.  

I have watched the recruiting game too long to worry about any one player.   He might turn out great or far from it.  

NT is deep right now at rb, so this is far from a critical signing.  

I also wonder if some of you bother to watch the games, few teams run the ball significantly more than at NT.  Exception being those few that run a triple option attack like Army.

Johnson decommitted.  Then go get a quality offensive or defensive lineman, HS or JUCO, to fill his spot.  F'em.

Maybe God just found that lineman that we so desperately need.

I gotta believe the staff told him we'll move on if you do.   I highly doubt we're going to hold onto is scholarship if he officially decommitted.    If that is his plan, he really messed up.   But he'll get offers.
