Opponent Watch 2019: North Texas

(Patrick) #1

CUSA released their schedules two days ago. North Texas has 4 games prior to our game there against them


Well, UNT will be preparing for us with a new OC.


A decent OOC for UNT.


Completely random observation, but that kind of looks like a cigarette in his right hand.

Good hire for USC.
Good 2nd choice.
He was top of list when Major was looking.

UNT game scares me as much as OU and WSU.

Where do the Mean Green turn to replace Harrell? There are several options on the table — hire from within or go after a successful coordinator who recently got fired from his job.

Major Applewhite would be the dream hire for the Mean Green. Applewhite was fired as the head coach of the Houston Cougars and is looking for a new team. North Texas and Applewhite would be a great fit for each other. Applewhite succeeded the current Texas coach Tom Herman who went 22-4 at Houston before leaving. Applewhite went 15-11 over two seasons as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks’ coach and could come in and immediately help Mason Fine and keep this Mean Green offense rolling.

I would LOVE the chance to play against an Applewhite Offense!!!


King hands Applewhite’s entire playbook over to our DC.

North Texas Mean Green

Head coach : Seth Littrell (23-17, fourth year)

2018 record and S&P+ ranking : 9-4 (65th)

Projected 2019 record and S&P+ ranking : 8-4 (84th)

Five key points :

1. Littrell’s name was tied to a whole bunch of openings, but he’s returning to Denton for a fourth season.
2. The UNT offense could be the best in C-USA. QB Mason Fine, WR Rico Bussey Jr., and a truckload of RBs give a new OC a lot to work with.
3. The defense has a few more questions after losing ĂĽber-productive duos at both linebacker and cornerback.
4. UNT might still have the best safety corps in the conference, plus fun attackers at DE.
5. The schedule features non-conference tossups vs. SMU and Houston and C-USA road trips to Louisiana Tech and Southern Miss. This season could go in a lot of directions.
