Littrell ranked #104 coach in the nation

It's very much deserved. Best QB in school history and a solid roster otherwise can't excuse going 4-8.

Littrell flopped last year and I'm concerned if he'll get back to a bowl game

Last year was no doubt a disappointment.  

I have some concern about this coming season.   However, the last few signing classes have been really good and eventually (2021 ?), this team should break through from those signings..    Seth is a good coach.   I am still really happy to have him here.

At least we shouldn't have to listen to rumors about him leaving this season.   He was still on the coaching hot list last year until the 3 game losing streak at the end put a stop to that.

How does anyone view this as a  positive rating?

I am a Littrell fan, but fail to see how being ranked this low is a plus. 

It's not. It's called everyone here has a mentality of settling for less.

All he needs is one good year to shoot back into the top 50. He has some serious intangibles that overrate On occasion. His underpromising quiet style works to his advantage.  If he cultivates the right quarterback this year, he will become a popular commodity again. He has some skins on his wall and his stealth demeanor can be attractive to curious ADs.

I’m hoping he surprises, succeeds and moves up the charts this year.

So the only coaches in CUSA who are are ranked worse are UTSA 129, UTEP 124, OD 118, MT 105, NT 104, Charol 102, S Miss 101,  LT 66, FIUY 67, Marshall 68, everyone else in between.

Do you all really think a load of research went into this list of G5 coaches?  It's ridiculous and an opinion.

On the bright side, the job is considered a tier 3 G5 job (really non P5 because they include independents).  Thats better than 104.

 

And before anyone freaks out, there are 5 tiers. Only 11 teams are in tiers 1 and 2 (8 AAC, Boise, BYU, SDSU).  No CUSA jobs are in a higher tier than UNT.

 

Tier 3 definition "Tier 3 jobs: Some resource or location limitations but enough to make bowl games consistently and challenge for conference titles; a restricted but decent recruiting pool of regional or national prospects; a rare New Year's Six appearance is the ceiling; not a realistic candidate for Power 5 expansion."

 

Tiering
TIER 1: Boise State, Cincinnati, Houston, UCF

TIER 2: BYU, Memphis, Navy, San Diego State, SMU, South Florida, Temple
Most likely to move up: Memphis

TIER 3: Air Force, Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Central Michigan, Colorado State, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Fresno State, Georgia Southern, Louisiana, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Miami (Ohio), Northern Illinois, North Texas, Ohio, Southern Miss, Toledo, Western Michigan, Wyoming
Most likely to move up: Colorado State

TIER 4: Army, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Charlotte, Florida International, Georgia State, Hawaii, Liberty, Middle Tennessee, Nevada, New Mexico, Old Dominion, Troy, Tulane, Tulsa, UAB, UConn, Utah State, Western Kentucky
Most likely to move up: Troy, Tulane

TIER 5: Akron, Ball State, Coastal Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico State, Rice, San Jose State, South Alabama, Texas State, UMass, UTEP, UTSA
Most likely to move up: Texas State, UTSA

Shows how one person sees NT not people.

Being there are only 11 teams in tiers 1 and 2, not a long way to go.   NT plays two of the teams ranked ahead next year, so a good chance to move up.   Not likely with a lot of new players, but a opportunity nethertheless.

Again another divide. Who decides p5 g5 and who decides tier 1-5.  People.  People are horse  arses at times. People slant for their own purposes and to suit their own motives. Make a true system that allows for upward mobility and  consequences for not performing - see relegation in the Premier League. Until then these artificial separations don’t exist in my book. To each his/her own belief.  The stupidest thing ever is calling basketball teams power league and mid major participants. Sorry does not compute. San Diego state BYU Gonzaga butler and Dayton slash that theory. But the horse arses still talk.

Division will always happen. No two programs are identical.

Kind of funny...highest rank for G5=#46 Josh Heupel...UCF. The university no one wants....#47 Hugh Freeze "Liberty U". Highest ranked CUSA.....#52 Bill Clark...UAB. The writers must of got bored after the first 25. Seth is better than #104.
