Is there a prediction thread yet? Can I make on?

Coffee and TV

Sorry y'all, I fell asleep on the job. Thanks for picking up the slack C&TV.

Dajon will be able to out-athlete Nicholls St. for sure. The O-Line should push the NSU D-line around like Ray Rice or Greg Hardy. I think we'll see more running than you guys would like, especially early on. Pegram will have a big day, going for around 7ypc. Dajon should join in the rushing fun too.

I think if Dajon can break a long run or two (20+yds), he could reach 100yds rushing himself. He probably will if he runs on some busted plays.

Hopefully he can pass the ball well too. I think the O-line can create a nice enough pocket for him to have plenty of time to throw.

The defense almost held SMU to a shutout. I think they'll be just as close with Nicholls. They should score 3-7pts at most.


Go Mean Green!

EDIT: Attendance prediction: 18500 (because of family weekend)

Each RB gets 100yds.

Erik Evans gets his 100 on 2 carries of 63 and 37.

Dajon throws for 175+ and 3TDs 1INT

Arkansas put up 495 rushing yards on Nicholls and only attempted 14 passes.

Air Force rushed for 539yds and only attempted 6 passes.

So I think it is safe to say we will be able to run the ball at will which should allow Dajon to practice his passing on any given play.

Final score 56-13 North Texas

    • We replaced an Air Raid coach who went 24-18 in his first 42 games at HC with an Air Raid coach who went 24-18 in his first 42 games at HC in the FCS. And I'm not saying that everyone who has the same philosophy or comes from the same coaching tree is the same. I think mostly UNT has been TOO reactionary with their hires, trying to always spin a 180, until this most recent hire. I'm just seeing a lot of the same things I've been seeing. I think he's set us up for better recruiting, so there's that. And I don't feel like we're getting as many penalties, which would be a combination of the players' makeups and position coaches' teaching of technique. I LIKE Coach Morris. He seems candid and realistic. But I'm not impressed with our level of Xs and Os or with the roster we've started the season with. And that's the job.  As far as him being able to elevate our program, I don't see it. I don't know what he's bringing to the table that's different than what we've had before. 
    • Morris seems like a down to earth guy, and I like him personally. But, as a coach, I think he's in over his head a little. Until he steps up and actually figures out how to address the defensive failings, UNT will continue to struggle for wins. And he will be no better than an average coach, at best.  Most of these Leach coaches struggle to field real defenses. That's why most get fired and end up back as OC's. I was really hoping Morris would be different. It's not too late yet. But it is his choice to make. 
    • 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.
