Dane Brugler article at The Athletic

Recommended Posts

Dane Brugler just put out a way too early scouting rankings of senior QBs and had Mason Fine at 14th among senior QBs. This is as an NFL prospect, not a college QB. There weren't any notes on the reasoning, but I assume size is the main concern.

Hopefully he won't get overlooked, but he will be a steal for someone if he does.

I am cautiously optimistic that MF will be drafted.  He has the mental and intestinal requirements to go along with his physical talents.

That's not a fair ranking in my opinion.  Add this guy to a long list of non-believers.

Or is it something else.  Could it be they perceive more clicks if they provid coverage of bigger school or P5 QB's.

Cause the size thing is horseshit,  look at the last two OU QB's that went to the NFL they were both Fine's size...

I've heard him talk about Mason passively on the draft show and never said much glowing remarks. Called me a decent little QB. Brugler lost some respect from me that day.

He’s simply never seen Mason throw.

I thought those OU quarterbacks were all-world athletes, like ran a 4.3 40 and were high baseball draft prospects. Is Fine identical to them in every tangible?

14th, just in the Senior class?   So there are even more Juniors (& possibly Sophs) ranked ahead of him in this guy's mind?  I don't have an The Athletic subscription, so I don't know what the article says.

Then he’s either a dumbass or ignorant not realizing how difficult it is to throw a football 40-58 + yards accurately.

Try running at QB in the NFL for any significant time and see what happens.   I put Fine's passing, release and decision making up against either of them.

I dunno guys.  Fine can throw, but can Fine take an NFL hit?  Wish he was a little heavier.

That senior QB list is so stupid with MF being placed at 14th.  

Just look up the stats of the top 6.  

Fine threw for more yards.

Threw more td’s than most.

Had a higher completion percentage than most.

And threw fewer interceptions than most.

........but he’s under 6 foot so...

How the hell is FIU QB so far ahead of Mason? Poor list.

Mason has a lot in his favor. He has started a lot of games, his production will get him more than a seriously look, and the height of the last two Heisman winners/#1 overall picks helps as well.

It also helps with the way QB contracts are that if a team can get someone in the third or fourth round to be a starter, they can allocate their money everywhere else. So teams may feel impulsed to role the dice on Fine fairly early in the draft instead of writing him off as an UDFA.

Mason just needs to keep doing what he does.

All we have to do is WIN to change this ranking!

👍

....and beating California would make for a great start in changing that ranking. 

The difference for Fine, if he ever makes it to an NFL team, will be what I observed in fall practice of his freshman year........he just oozed confidence from every pore.  That goes a long way for a savvy coach.

      DENTON, Texas — Full cost-of-attendance for out-of-state students at the University of North Texas runs about $36,000 a year.
      Mean Green quarterback Mason Fine has repaid the school for his scholarship several times over — even if it was the only scholarship offer he got.

      In 2015, when Fine was a record-setting high school quarterback at Locust Grove, Okla., North Texas averaged just 13,631 fans per home game. A total of 68,155 went through the turnstiles that year. In 2018, when Fine was winning his second consecutive Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year award, UNT brought in 23,355 fans per game, a total of 140,131 and a 71 percent increase in ticket sales.
      “For a long time, I think everybody looked at North Texas from the outside and said, ‘That’s a place that ought to be pretty good: great location, 40,000 students, a rapidly growing area of the country,’” UNT athletic director Wren Baker recently told Sporting News. “And Mason has been a key part in helping turn the program around, which in turn has had a huge influence on the university. Record-setting donations, not only in athletics but at the institution, (and) freshman enrollment is up like 15 percent this year.
      “Is he solely responsible for that? No. But has he played a big part in probably the No. 1 marketing tool of the university’s success? Yeah, he’s had a huge impact.”

      DENTON – Senior quarterback Mason Fine has accomplished quite a bit during his three-plus years in Denton. His name is all over the Mean Green record book and several other key categories are in his sights. What else is left before Fine moves on to his next chapter?
       
      Winning his last game(s)
       
      North Texas has resurrected itself quickly from the 1-11 2015 season prior to head coach Seth Littrelland Fine's arrival. The Mean Green have reached three consecutive bowl games for only the second time in program history. Unfortunately, however, the team has fallen in all three – only one of which Fine was completely healthy for.
       
      He missed the Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl in 2016 due to injury as a true freshman and last season in the New Mexico Bowl suffered a leg injury in the first quarter that cost the Peggs, Oklahoma, native the remainder of the game, despite a gritty effort to fight through the pain.
       
      The Mean Green are positioned well again to compete for a conference championship and find success in bowl season. One of the only things left on Fine's sparkling UNT resume is a win in his last game.
       
      Wins in the final regular season game against defending Conference USA champion UAB, a conference championship game and then a bowl game are all realistic goals for this team, and Fine will be driving the bus.

      So, The Texas Sports Hall of Fame, in Waco, is the first to receive the New Dave Campbell Texas Football. Now granted that we are non to happy of UT's Sam Ehlinger on the cover and not Our Mason Fine They do have us going 9-3 overall (7-1 conference) in the 2019 Season. In fact, Greg Tepper of Texasfootball.com ask "Can a Texas team finally break Through in Wide-open C-USA?" He goes on to say that "The Lone Star State's best hope appears to be North Texas."
      Small Breakdown:
      Mean Green Offense :
      QB's = A+
      RB's = A
      OLine = B-
      Receivers = A
       
      Defense:
      D-line = C
      LB's = D+
      D-backs = B
      Special Teams = C
      Game of the Year: Mean Green at Southern Miss Oct 12. that being the conference loss.
      Let the debating continue....
