Houston Fans Discuss North Texas

Fine is as good as advertised, will be one of the best 3 QBs we face this year and he has an experienced group of receivers to throw to. Their offense was super inconsistent last year, like struggling to score points against the dregs of CUSA like Rice, UTSA and UTEP. They also had to bring in a new OC because USC hired away Graham Harrell.

Also, they lose practically all their playmakers from a defense that was a pretty big part of keeping them in games last year. I can’t imagine them not regressing at least somewhat, which will probably mean week 5 in Denton is gonna be a shoot out. I can’t see them stopping King that often.

Mostly pretty fair comments. Except for the one that said the crowd was predominantly UH fans in 2011. That’s a bit ridiculous. 

They did fill the visitor section with a little over flow. But no way was it even 60-30.

I remember being disappointed in the crowd vs. Houston, as Houston did not fill the seats that I had anticipated.

Yes. They brought a good contingent of fans to Apogee (read a couple thousand)  just like we do when we play down there at UH or Rice. This game should be an annual OOC matchup. It’s good for both programs.

Get alternating schedules. We play at rice and UH comes here. UH plays at UNT and SMU plays at UH. Then switch.

Fair assessments/comments here unlike a certain coog that roams our boards from time to time. Other than the deluded clown comments about attendance in 2011, they appeared to have a lot of respect for us. Should be a shootout

      As Holtz has studied film on the Mean Green, who have had a disappointing 2019 up to this point, what he’s seen hasn’t surprised him. And it doesn’t cause a fiery response. For the Louisiana Tech head coach, it’s the same concern that comes each season matching up with North Texas.
      “They’re everything I thought they’d be,” Holtz said.
      Saying the 2019 season has not been smooth for North Texas, the preseason favorites to win the Conference USA West division, may be a bit of an understatement. With plentiful starters back from last year headlined by senior quarterback Mason Fine, the Mean Green had their sights set on their second conference championship game appearance in three years.

      I enrolled at the University of North Texas right in time to watch Darrell Dickey sink into the earth. The football coach would finish 2-9 that year, right after a 7-5 season—and almost 2,000 rushing yards from rookie Jamario Thomas—got them their fourth straight bowl berth. He’d lose his job two years later, and then Todd Dodge got brought up from Southlake and stunk up Fouts Field so bad that the sports program had to launch a dubiously-funded effort for a new stadium to get us to talk about something else. (Fouts was also really old.) When my friends and I would go to games, we’d spend more time in the parking lot than in Fouts. It was bad football. (But Tobe Nwigwe was on the team, and he is now terrific, and running back Patrick Cobbs got some years as a backup for the Dolphins and I think the Saints. OK, no more parenthesis, I promise.)
      I bring this up because current coach Seth Littrell is apparently one of just 15 coaches at public universities who has personal access to a private jet written into their contract, according to USA Today. That’s use of a plane not for recruiting or work-related endeavors, but for “family vacations or other leisure trips.” In addition to his $1.865 million salary, Littrell gets $100,000 a year that goes toward “private aircraft charter flight services.” Not bad!
      Littrell is among good company: six coaches are in the Big Ten and five are in the SEC. Littrell is … in Conference USA. He’s 26-21 since 2016, with three bowl appearances but no wins. That’s definitely a jump in quality, but is it worth shelling out $100,000 in university funds so he can take some trips?
