‘23 LB Offer; Matthew Moore, Killeen Ellison

Recommended Posts

  • UNTLifer changed the title to ‘23 LB Offer; Matthew Moore, Killeen Ellison

FBS offers between us and Arkansas State. I was impressed with his closing speed on plays. He did a good job fighting off blocks and making tackles. It might be the defense he plays in, but the LBs look slow to react on defense. At the FBS level, he would get mauled by an OL if he stood around for that long reading a play. He will need to bulk up and improve his reaction times. I imagine he would be a candidate for a redshirt.

NTU.  Not mad.  Just...noticing.

Those mistakes are very common when branding isn't followed. One of our new coaches had also posted that he was leaving to join North Texas University.

Could be our fourth Moore in this signing class.

Going to be a little confusing. 

Not to mention one of those Moore’s is Marcus and they are both on defense so if we do names on the jerseys they’ll need to do Mar. Moore and Mat. Moore.

He just committed as well. I think he will be a solid player for us down the road.


I honestly think he will be the surprise of this class. Really liked his film.  They appeared to have played a “read and react” system in HS, but when he reacted, he was quick and decisive. 

Welcome to the Mean Green family Matthew.

    • My observation last night was that neither of our lines were doing a very good job. Our DL got handled and just generally pushed around (lots of running yards up the middle). And our OL did not push their DL around too much. When it came to going purely up the middle. We didn't do very well. 
    • I'm not a fan of Dilfer's behavior yesterday. Sure they made a bad mistake, but making a spectacle of himself in the middle of the game is a bad look for their program. If I'm a recruit or the parent of a recruit, that wouldn't sit well with me.  I'd never want to see Morris berate coaches or players on the sideline like that. In my opinion, Morris should have dealt with Caponi during the bye week. But as we can see from the defensive performance last night, he did not. 
    • His job. As head coach, it's his responsibility to insure we don't have the worst of anything in all of the FBS. For 5 straight weeks we have endured the worst overall defense in the FBS, No FBS defense is giving up more points, or rushing yards. We are entering the 6th week of the season. Practicing tackling and running a few other defensive looks on the field isn't working (ACU should never be able to score 31 on UNT's defense). It is obvious to everyone paying attention that the 3-3-5 shouldn't be our base defense. Can UNT use it in situations? Sure. But, it isn't working as our standard scheme.  This season doesn't have to be a loss. Caponi doesn't have to continue as our defensive coordinator. He has failed at the job. Morris needs to reassign him for the rest of the season, and promote or bring in a coach with successful experience as a DC. Our offense is among the best in college football, and can probably post big numbers on most of the other AAC teams. Unfortunately, our offense is currently preforming double duty as our best defense too, and Morris needs to acknowledge that fact and make the adjustments so that the defense will pull their own weight on this team. Rogers is good at keeping our defense off the field by managing the short passing game and sustaining drives with his feet and our running game. Imagine what this offense could do if they were free to push the tempo and stretch the defenses more. Unfortunately, our lack of defense prevents our offense from being as good as they could be. As long as Morris allows this gameplan to mask the failing of our defense, then he is choosing to shortchange half of his team and the Mean Green fans. I hope I've answered you question.
    • Good UNT teams will bring the fans out.  Think about the Mason Fine days.  Fun times.  So long ago.
    • How do I feel about Morris? I feel like we had the starters in on offense until the final whistle against an FCS team because we didn’t put them away until the very end.  Generally I agree with your points above. For me, #4 is the key: fix the problem or lose your job. Either force Craponi to adjust his approach or bring in someone else.
