Tonight I watched a fine football game. It was a hard fought battle, with big plays on each side of the ball. Some unexpected heroes, great coaching, good halftime adjustments, and time management battles that went down to literally the last minute.
Malakoff beat Grandview to advance to the State semifinals.
Friday night is for high school football. UNT should remember that in the future. Fortunately, I'm certain the AAC won't be chained to such a schedule.
It is glaringly clear that change is needed. So what will the administration do? Will they do what needs to be done? Or continue to say 1 game above .500 and a bowl game is enough, while hemorrhaging fans and interest?
That was the screwup, sitting too long to step out. The play clock was actually running correctly with the 40. Kickoffs that are fair caught are spotted and the Auto-40 sec clock starts automatically unless the Media rep indicates that TV wants a timeout. (they did not).
We got out there a little late also, but should have had about 10 seconds or so to run a play. It is not the crew's job to ensure the defense isn't lollygagging.
Smatresk should hire a talented and ambitious AD and give him the full power to decide whether to keep Littrell or replace him.
Anyone who sees himself as a P5 AD someday isn't going to want to stake his future on Mr. Six Wins and a Bowl Loss.
