College Football Is Being Played All Over America Today Except In—Denton, Texas.😣

It is what it is…after all of these years, we have more than proven that we are in the division of the conference we need to be in.

For whatever reason, we just cannot do it. Actually, there are lots of reasons why we don’t…

What?  Sack & salt the MG Village?🤣  

We’ve seen what a charismatic coach can do at a North Texas (then) located in a (rural) Denton County that had only 98,000 (now 900K+);  a city of Denton that only had 34,000 citizens (now 150K?);  & an NT that only had an enrollment of 16,000 students (& now 42K+). 
Like some of you I like Seth Littrell but it’s obvious (especially after tonight) that this is no longer working. Some of you saw this much earlier —I guess I was way too slow to have that light bulb come on. 😞 

😢 This is all just so disappointing because so many of us had high hopes with Seth Littrell; a likable kind of person although I never met the guy.  I stopped needing to meet coaches after Corky Nelson because I just kept getting disappointed.  Seems I made the right decision in doing that.  Where’s my Louisville slugger & an oak tree to take this out on?🤢

I’ll be completely honest with you. I’ve followed the program since 1990. I’ve never seen anything like what you’ve described…like nothing even close

Ever the ray of sunshine. We can fix it and move on or, as it appears you are suggesting, give up. I’m not into giving up.

He is speaking of Fry's era. An anomaly in our long and mostly sad history.

I’ve never suggested giving up…never even once.

What I have said all along—and have been proven completely right about—is that SL and this program being nowhere near being competitive for a season that so many homers on here have talked about us being. This program needs a restart, as you mentioned, but the reality is that it will always come down to two things here: money and want to. And none of us know what that will end up being in the end.

When we had Fry, he was probably too much for Denton & for sure the venues we then didn’t have.  He (or one like him) would not be that at a 2021 version of UNT.  
👉🏻 How many in G5 can honestly beat our overall facilities inside the Mean Green Village & (still) the ageless Super Pit? •••That number would be on one hand—maybe just one finger. (No, not that one).🙀
 
Yet the feelings I got tonight are similar to the infamous Portland State game & that makes me ill for all concerned—Seth, his coaches, his players & we the fans.  Where’s the family dog!😨

We lost to a FCS team from Portland that day on Homecoming by 59 points.

Tonight’s game won’t be worse than that, as UAB has been the dominant team in our league for four years now. They just aren’t some spare…

We just got our asses whipped by a program we need to emulate in a bad way…

You said we are where we belong. That is acceptance or giving up at moving up.   Either way, you have your opinion and I have mine.

We belong here until we can prove otherwise. Look, I know you’re mad and upset. You bought into the idea we would be better because of the recruiting classes here. I don’t blame you for being disappointed. But you have to recognize that UAB and La Tech have physically whipped out ass for 5 years. Until that changes, we are where we belong. I’d call it recognizing the reality.

Took me awhile but for what we need to happen at UNT—we need a change even if by mid/season.  Give the interim job to Phil Bennett.

IMO, the momentum of this program started going south almost after SL turned down the Big 12 job. Things seemed to go into a funk after that.  His recruiting has been fine but this team has no inspiration.  

Hell!  Maybe we need to drop football 2 years & come back roaring like a Hillbilly Dragon!! 🤬
 

Worse?  The timing of the last 2 years could not have been worse in light of what’s happening in the NCAA. 
 

I told you I did not feel it and I thought it would be worse than the SMU game.

Post what you want but you don’t put words in my mouth to make your point.

Posted above but.......🐎 ••• All should still be reminded that the year SMU first joined CUSA (2005) the 10 seasons prior to 2005 were all .500 & less In wins/losses for the Stangs.
