Greetings from the internet.
It has been a long while since you’ve seen anything from the self-proclaimed third best UNT website in the world and for a very good reason. Yours Truly was away in Spain. I had a great time. When I got back to home soil, I spent some time getting back to my life. A lot changes in two weeks. I’ve had to catch up on the whirlwind of UNT news. Apparently the Seth Littrell regime will be one very familiar with twitter. That’s good news. Danny Mac and company were overly reliant on outsourced tweets, and worse, boring ones.
While I am not knocked over with amazement when Littrell tweets some hip hop lyrics, I appreciate the social media effort as a whole 1. Things have been good in that respect.
He hired some assistants — some interesting, some not so much. He has been recruiting, also. As I suspected, he’s looked for some interesting transfers while looking to build for the long term. This recruiting season really won’t count against him in the long term, given the circumstances. He took over late in the process, and the team had a godawful season. The latter is probably worse but the former doesn’t help either. Even successful programs suffer a bit in recruiting when changing coaches.
The great news is that college football is a dynamic sport. Sure, the rich stay rich and don’t often drop to oblivion so often but things change. It is that hope that we are relying on here. We are hoping a tremendous season in 2016 will spring North Texas into the next college football stratum. You might argue that we have been hoping for that leap every year for the last 20. You would be right.
There is reason to be both skeptical and hopeful about Littrell. Right now I don’t see the value in focusing on the former when I’m feeling so refreshed. Everyone should take a vacation. It’s great.
Anyway, it’s good to be back. It’s even good to read wild ass message board posts again.
- I mean, it is 2016. Hip Hop is Pop music already. I’m unsurprised that he would know and or tweet some of these lyrics. ↩
