Tre Siggers Update


Recommended Posts

Former North Texas running back Tre Siggers looks as advertised early on in camp. He has experience and will be a great combo with the electric Ulysses Bentley. Siggers had a great game vs SMU in 2019 and a great relationship with assistant HC/RB coach Ra’Shaad Samples. Sample’s dad, Reginald Samples, is a legendary coach in Texas and coached Tre at Duncanville High School. SMU is really excited about its new transfers on offense like Siggers, tight end Grant Calcaterra and QB Tanner Mordecai.

You guys are so funny to me.  When a dude transfers you act all high and mighty towards any fan that gets upset about it.  Then when someone wants to keep track of a former players career you get all pissy!  😂 

I have said it before somewhere in these forums. It should be a universally obeyed rule to respect the decisions of these 18-22 year old kids as they are massive, life-altering decisions that heavily affect their future. If Siggers feels he has a better chance at making the pros or ensuring a better future for himself in or out of football at SMU then all the power in the world to him, and best wishes.

At the same time, when one of your more reliable players up and switches to hands down *our* biggest rival and a team that already has a leg up on us in most categories, it's 100% justified for people to be bothered by it and not give one lick of care for him moving forward. 

In this case, you can have your cake and eat it too. Siggers was a fun, exciting player for UNT who - definitely through some shady tampering - now plays for a school we all dislike that does not respect us. It sucks. It's not an indictment of hypocrisy from the fans at all.

I remember the $MU game where Siggers ran all over and through the Mustang defense.

On Pony Fans, the $MU fans were stating how much they would like to have Siggers on their team.

Some how Siggers did end up on their team. I wonder if there was player tampering going on since that game?

This is such a weird board sometimes. What illegal recruiting do you think needed to occur here?  Do you think SMU convinced a Siggers, who didn't want to transfer, to transfer, so they could add another player to one of their strongest positions?

Kids decide to transfer all the time. Maybe he didn't like something at UNT.  Maybe he want to move up to a program that's performing better and plays higher profile opponents.  Who knows.  Happens all the time and will happen more with no transfer penalty.  SMU has players who transferred up like Siggers and players who transferred down for playing time. The only thing unusual here is UNT's ability to take advantage of the transfer portal.

SMU cheat, now we know that could never happen

Transfer up, did I miss the announcement that SMU is in a new conference?

One word of advise, when cheating is mentioned relative to SMU; it might be better to just remain silent.

We spent weeks in the top 25 with multiple other conference mates, including Cincy in the top 10.  We had a very successful game with GameDay there the year before.  Nobody is talking about whether your conference will raid the B12 leftovers or vice versa  If you can't admit that's an increase in prestige and competition you have some serious self-confidence issues to work through.

And yet, I am not posting on a mustang forum bragging about another teams' success.  

Notice you didn't really address SMU as the post penalized program in the NCAA which was the focus of the comment.

I live in Denton and casually follow UNT. I'm reminded why I never posted here for so long however......

 

As to your cheating comment, there is nothing to address. There's not even a scenario where SMU would cheat to snag a backup RB when we have a strong RB room and much bigger needs.  If you are implying it was negotiated before he declared for the portal, sure. I'd imagine he reached out to multiple schools in advance through an intermediary. That's how these things are done everywhere.  I don't know if that's cheating in fact, but certainly not in spirit. 

 

Beyond that I can't imagine what you are even trying to bring up. We got penalized slightly more than everyone else is a dirty conference 35 years ago. We clearly haven't been cheating since then otherwise we are the most incompetent cheaters ever.

Slightly more?

SMU is currently a better team in a better conference.  If you think most NT fans are not aware of that, than post away. 

What I would suggest is that you post on SMU media and try to spread the word because SMU needs more fans that actually go to games.

Gee, I wonder why we would think that.

      For simplicity let's look at it like this:   UT and OU are going to the SEC period end of story.  A&M may not like it but they are one vote.   The remaining Big 12 leftovers are going to try their very best to land in a P5 conference.  They are all in a disasterous situation but landing in a P5 at least gives them some semblance of hope.   Kansas has a great basketball program but their football sucks.  Could they be in the Big 10 for hoops sure - they would fit in fine but not in a million years for football. Texas Tech is talking PAC12 but does the PAC12 want their sub par academics?  Do Tech fans want to travel out west?   Baylor is talking ACC, and the ACC may like an entre into Texas but do Clemson and those types of programs want to travel into Waco?    TCU and Baylor may want to be in the PAC 12 with Tech but the PAC 12 in the past has shunned religious programs.  Would they make an exception?   Iowa State and K-State seem to be on an island as Iowa does not want ISU in the B10.  KState is interesting but not sure the B10 is dying to add them.   Big 12 could try to get on the offense and add some programs asap to keep alive.  Say Houston, UCF, USF Memphis, Cincy, SMU -- all of their top targets would be in the AAC.   This is how things look to me now but there are rumblings that the SEC may try to add more like Clemson and FSU...  if that happens wow this whole thing could blow up and we would just have one major conference.   I tend to doubt that the SEC will go there yet because I think they teeter on monopolistic practices and it would involve a lot of political wrangling but at this point who knows.   As is typical for UNT, we have to wait and see what happens with SMU.  If SMU were able to convince the Big 12 to take them (don't kid yourself they have money and political power) and the Big 12 was able to survive it could mean that the AAC adds UNT.   The problem is what is the AAC after being robbed by the Big 12?  Another C-USA?

      On a warm September night at Apogee Stadium, an offense led by then-junior quarterback Mason Fine put up 46 points for North Texas compared to Southern Methodist University’s 26. The aforementioned game was in 2018 and it is the last time North Texas had a significant triumph versus SMU on or off the field.
      Starting with its on-field performance, football has not found a way to make the annual Safeway Bowl close in the last two years, losing 49-27 in 2019 and 65-35 in 2020 — the latter of which was on the Mean Green’s home turf. Giving up a combined 114 points in the last two contests, North Texas’ defense has failed in stopping the likes of sophomore running back Ulysses Bentley IV who posted 19 carries for 227 yards and three touchdowns in 2020. It was the same story in 2019 when former SMU running back Xavier Jones tallied 16 carries for 127 yards and three touchdowns. 
      To make matters worse, however, the damage is not just being done on the ground. The Mean Green were likely ecstatic to see former SMU quarterback Shane Buechele enter the NFL draft this year. In two career games against North Texas, Buechele threw for a combined 636 yards and seven touchdowns while dismantling the Mean Green defense. The lone standout performer for North Texas in either game was former running back Tre Siggers who in 2019 rushed for 164 yards and a touchdown versus SMU. This offseason, Siggers joined the Mustangs via the transfer portal.

      If Texas and Oklahoma officially make plans to leave, the strongest move the Big 12 could make is aggressively going after the top layer of the Group of Five, with a special focus on tying together a strong geographic league. Houston should be a first call, like it should have been last time. SMU should come. BYU, Memphis, UCF, Cincinnati, Appalachian State, Louisiana, Boise State should all be considered. 
      Pick four of the schools, whichever ones make sense competitively, geographically and culturally. All of the schools I mentioned have perennially been in the top 25 discussion, both in football and basketball. While nothing will make up for the vacuum at the top of the league, it immediately would make the Big 12 a deep league filled with great programs.
      Let’s say for argument’s sake that the new league takes SMU, Houston, UCF and Memphis. The league would have a handful of conference championships and New Year’s Six bowl wins to its name, along with a solid geographic footprint and some fast-growing brands. Mix that with what Baylor, Iowa State, TCU and several others have done over the past few years and you have a very exciting football league.
