Graham Harrell for HC.

As soon as we lost him, it has been all downhill. Just saying

I was never high on GH basically because of short yardage situations constantly dooming us while he was here. But boy are you right. Since his departure the wheels have clearly fallen off.

I will pitch in however much is needed because he has done nothing but disappoint here. No bowl wins, no championships, 1-4 against SMU, very few wins over teams above .500, always something on e

SMU won by getting an infusion of P5 talent that they “recruited.”  

As I say this, they score.  Forgot to mention we have never had a good OL, defense has been slow almost every year, never ready. Clearly they focus on other things besides winning. WE A

 With his bonuses, it is closer to 1.5M.

“The ceiling at the University of North Texas is incredibly high,” Baker said. “We can be one of the best group of five programs in the country and compete for conference championships every year. Then that puts you in position where you can be one of the programs talked about nationally that can take on anybody. That’s the type of program we’re building at North Texas, so I’m excited to keep that momentum.”

You’ve come around to seeing UNT Football for what it is...some of us always told you this is how it work out. Now it’s your turn to let these newbies understand what the future looks like around here.

We are badass, nationally ranked highly for music and arts. That’s who we are. We don’t want to ever make winning football a priority around here.

All you can do is laugh. The money being dumbed into this program with the product that we are being served is some kind of cruel joke. I will not support this. I am stonewalling my support fully. Complete ineptitude on O until we are against 3's and 710 yards of offense allowed has me feeling like 2015 Dan McCarney era. Littrell is a fraud.

No doubt. I'll just probably wither back away into creeper status on here until something egregious brings me back out.

Bye, I’m sure if we all band together we can figure out a way to replace your $50 mgsf donation.

Damn... Now we have to raise the buyout AND another $50 on top of that? 

Tonight keeps getting worse and worse.

Im not sure if you’ve been watching them but I think the Bobcats would have a real chance of beating us the way we have played thus far.

As far as buying out Littrell, I don’t think that is great idea. This is a f’d up year. We lost our qb coach right before the season started. We lost two defensive starters the day before the game. We are trying out two new quarterbacks to try and replace one of our best ever. This season is a lost season for many reasons. Let’s just try to get through it and pretend in never happened. Hopefully with this pseudo-season and spring practice we will figure the offense out. Defense, we need to find the next John Skladany.

Most on here were way too positive after HBU and now we are way too negative after SMU. They are just better than us plain and simple. We have work to do but right now measuring ourselves against SMU is not helpful. Now if we get curb stomped by UTSA, that is a different story.

Texas State would kill us. Praying UTSA hasn’t passed us yet. And UTEP is the worst program in the FBS.

We don’t have the money to buy him out yet, but the UNT 17 showed us after Portland State that they can only handle so much. But that was buying out 2.5 years of a much smaller contract than what SL gets paid and will have 3 years left on his contract.

Well, when the MGSF gets about 2% of UNT alumni to donate, at least under the great leadership of RV, $50 seems even more daunting...

Also forgot to mention the fact that our bench, with 6 minutes left, were playing around and laughing.

I was in shock. Utter disgust. That shows how bad Seth has our team disciplined.

But at the same time, they had no energy on the field. I wonder where it went. Fans were yelling at the players, and of course they yell back, but for the first time I agree with the fans yelling at them. It was a disaster and they were acting like nothing happened.

I'm in for it. I've been calling for his head since last year. 

He's an OC, not a head coach, and clearly he only excels as an OC when he has P5 talent to execute.

Get Billy Napier on the phone now and pay him whatever he wants

but I pay a thousand plus dollars a year when I don’t have to.

Welcome to UNT sports... I spent thousands in 2019 after I bought the hype and went to all the away games with the old lady plus the thousands spent on Hub Club tix.  Seemed very dumb by the end of the season, but I'd do it all again.  And I'll never get that $45 bucks a tix back for Houston tickets + hotel and gas or flights next week either.

I want to buy a motor home so I can just stay at Apogee and drown my sorrows and pass out post game without leaving the parking lot.  The best thing you can do is just double down on the Mean Green Sports Pain.

Littrell left his soul in Manhattan, KS. 
The cycle of losing is starting again in Denton. Here we go....

Agreed... he probably should have just taken the KSU job.  I don't think he'll get that kind of an offer again.   😎

Anyway, we have obviously regressed a lot.  The proof's in the pudding... our arrow is not pointing up with performance on the field. 

My hope is that Littrell cares enough to really open up a can and whip this thing into some resemblance of a contender again.  As of now, I think La Tech and Southern Miss will take care of us pretty easily.

I’ve seen us have exactly 5 seasons where we have won 9 games. And one where we won 8. And two seasons with 7 wins. That’s 8 seasons...out of 30...

This is my 59th season,[ since freshman year 1961 ] and probably my last. We have sunk to the same level as UTEP,UTSA,Texas State, and Rice, and I don't know if we can beat any of them.

Well, he is 3 games over 500, and not many UNT football can say that. We won't buy him out because we can't afford to.  I don't know how many years he has on the contract he sighed 2 years ago but he is making $1million+ a year, about $100,000 per game. Over paid, over rated.

Jay Hopson was removed after Week 1, and he had a better overall record at Southern Miss than Littrell has here. Just sayin'.

If our athletic department is willing to accept this level of incompetence, than we will not become anything more than we are now... a mid-level program in the worst conference in the FBS. Sadly, we didn't need to spend all we have on facilities and infrastructure to reach that level. Our lines are still trash. Bowen never should have been hired. And, Littrell still has to make excuses for the terrible play on the field....

I will donate the equivalent of my annual expense on Mean Green Fund donations and season tickets, if Wren pulls the trigger and fires Littrell now. I don't know if Littrell has lost his players, but he has lost me, and I would think most logical Mean Green fans. I have no faith in his ability to take this program where I believe we want it to go. Littrell is not a real head coach. He needs to go back to being an OC.

Fire Littrell.

I like Littrell and I wanted him to be successful here at UNT. But, I love North Texas and our administration must always do what is in the best interest of our program. No coach, player, or administrator is bigger than the program, and everyone must be held accountable. June Jones didn't get to stay after getting bent over 43-6 in Denton back in 2014. If our administration is willing to accept total failure while SMU won't, than we will continue to get punked every time we take the field against SMU.
