He’s better than Todd Dodge, by a lot, but only because he didn’t bring in high school coaches.

But he’s just another Leach disciple—no defense, empty numbers, no championships.

His big year is next year and he knows it. 2021 either keeps him here or gets him fired. That’s what it’s all about for him...and really, that’s what we have to accept, no matter how many years he has been here and how much he has swindled us for. Without Graham Harrell, he is just a bad coach, no different than anyone else we have seen in Denton other than Fry and Corky.

Brammer looked good. Aune looked good minus the INT.  Aune should start and not Bean. Addaway should be the starting RB. Why didn't we play Siggers? Lots of wasted downs with Torrey when Siggers can do what Torrey does and more.  First half was a ****show but the second half, offensively, was mildly encouraging.  I know people want SL's head but who else do you think we could get here?  The defensive issues were probably going to be a given with the new staff and limited number of practices. Losing our best linebackers, especially in this hybrid offense defense, is why our defense couldn't stop the run.

I doubt the Davis's even have Covid, it's probably just contract trace protocol BS.

I’m not calling for Littrell’s head Yet but to answer this part...tons of people. We comp at the upper end of G5 and have good football facilities. Lots of qualified people would happily take this gig.

I want him to answer 1 simple question...why is his team so much worse than the one 30 miles down the road?  Pretty much every reason is directly under his control: i.e. recruiting, coaching (practice and game day), conditioning, etc. and he's had time to fully develop whatever "scheme" he' intending to implement.

If I may, why? 

I’m not saying I’m not heading in that direction, just not there yet. Last year was a GIGANTIC red flag. Today adds to the negative side of the ledger significantly as well. I do like the direction the recruiting has taken in the past couple of years.

The defense looks like it may be beyond saving this year but I’m willing to give it a couple more games to see if the younger players adjust to the speed of the game. They sure looked soft to me. If it doesn’t make a big leap in the next 2 games, this season will be lost. Willing to see it play out though.

Flying Worm uniforms totally wasted tonight.  Need to show up to play defense if you're going to break out a classic.  Certainly not if you're going to treat your so-called 'bitter rival' like Portland State.  Waiting to see what kind of a smiley face Wren paints on this performance.

We are so freaking soft. Our players are killing the turf. 

More like the turf was killing our players. How many guys went down periods tonight?  It was beautiful weather coming off of a week off. What do we pay our strength and conditioning coach for?

Food was garbage in the Hub Club tonight too... Except for that delicious Mac n Cheese. 

Every time I've been up there, it always is garbage.

How many false starts have we had? I feel like there's a guy moving early on every snap

What did we end up with, 7+ false starts, including at least one on a receiver. Totally inexcusable.

I’m here for the mean green no matter the score. Just grateful there’s a 45% chance/proof I may not remember it

Next game, I'm bringing in a bottle. Screw the flask. 

 

 

Tonight was an embarrassment. Plain and simple. I don't believe $mut is a good team. We were just that bad. We looked like an FCS team tonight.

Our defensive culture has to change. This 10 yard cushion bullsh has to have been renamed the "North Texas" scheme by other schools by now. Weak ass arm tackling.  Corners biting on God knows what on that first drive that left the receiver wide ass open. Honestly, what the eff did he bite on?  I saw kids in 104 tracking the receiver better than our corner on that play. I don't think I've ever seen a corner try to key in on a quarterback who was simply rolling out, and just let his receiver go. There was no one in the same damn zip code to cover!  The play on 4th down was even worse. You have Buechelle dead to rights, and you can't even make the most basic of tackles!  Instead you stand straight up, stick out your forearm, and he just bounces off of you.  What the hell do they work on in practice?!

In my opinion the only positive I saw in the entire game was probably my adopted player, Oscar Adaway III. That guy is the real deal. With almost no blocking he was dragging SMU players for extra yards on every play. When we get to conference play Adaway could dominate most of the C-USA level defenses. He really is the only story worth following this season. Unless Wren fires Littrell and we get to speculate about a new coaching hire. By the way, he seemed to hobble off the field after his last play of the game. Hope he is okay. Here are Adaway's numbers....

Adaway 20 carries for 104 yards for 5.2 yards per carry

      The SMU Mustangs opened the 2020 college football season with a closer-than-expected 31-24 victory over Texas State two weeks ago. SMU was then forced to wait longer than anticipated for another chance to play when its rivalry game against TCU was postponed. However, the idle week allowed Sonny Dykes' team extra time to prepare for another rival, as the North Texas Mean Green is set to host the Mustangs Saturday in Denton. North Texas also opened the season with a win, beating FCS member Houston Baptist 57-31 in Week 1, and then spending two weeks preparing for the opportunity to move to 2-0.
       
      SMU at North Texas
       
      Kickoff: Saturday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. ET
      TV: CBSSN
      Spread: SMU -14
       
      When SMU Has the Ball
      The SMU offense runs through Shane Buechele. The former Texas quarterback threw for 3,929 yards and 34 touchdowns with only 10 interceptions in 490 pass attempts in his first season with the Mustangs in 2019. Buechele accounted for 367 passing yards and a touchdown and averaged 10.2 yards per attempt while completing 72.2 percent of his passes against Texas State, but he was picked off twice. Top target Reggie Roberson Jr. caught six passes for 99 yards and a 51-yard score that proved to be the game-winner as it broke a 21-21 tie in the third quarter. Rashee Rice led the team with 101 yards on five catches, and junior college transfer Danny Gray, one of the fastest players in the country, caught four passes for 72 yards.

      The Mean Green wrapped up their 2020 recruiting class with a handful of signees that will be a great addition to their squad on Wednesday during National Signing Day.
      A majority of the 13 Texas area signatures came during the early signing period in December. With the 2020 recruitment period coming to a close, North Texas is looking ahead to what will hopefully be a better season than last year’s 4-8 (3-5) record.
      Here’s a look at the 13 natives who will be joining in the fall. 
      OG, Kade Bond (6’3, 281)
      3-Star, Magnolia
      Committing to North Texas in June, Bond sealed the deal in December with a signature. According to a 246sports.com composite, Bond is the No. 221 player in the state of Texas and the No . 94 offensive guard in the nation. Bond is a three-time First Team All-District athlete (’17, ’18, ’19) who helped anchor Magnolia’s O-Line for a gain of 2,921 rushing yards, 265.5 yards per game, and 24 rushing touchdowns in 2019. Bond is great at creating a pocket for his quarterback. We can expect to see great blocking coming from this 3-star recruit once he suits up. Bond chose to join the Mean Green squad over offers from five other schools including Texas State, New Mexico State, Louisiana-Monroe and more.
