I thought that's why Dodge was hired there in the first place...UNT and Nike really liked his sole.

I'd really love to see The Mean Green become a good team. UNT's players look like Jr. High players against most of their opponents. They need size and speed.

Hopefully, Todd Dodge can recruit a few and get the program headed in the right direction. He did turn Southlake Carroll into a powerhouse and it didn't happen overnight.

HAHAHAHA, he did not turn southlake into a powerhouse. the dragons have been slaying since 1988 since the great bob ledbetter wons state titles in 3A.

dodge is a high school coach and just gotthe UNT job based on the success any couach would have had at southlake....just like the coach at southlake now. and he aint very good.

I hope he can turn it around next year. This year, I just hope to win at least one game. I am a loyal UNT fan, much to the ridicule of everyone around me. I go to nearly every home game and even made the trip to Rice.

I think it will turn around in two years. Dodge will get players that fit his system better. Most of the ones he has now are from the little Dickey regime at UNT where they tried to run the ball every down and let the defense shut the other team down. It worked 5 years ago, but then that system died.

Speaking of the great Bob Ledbetter, any of you sports trivia afficiado's know who hired Bob away form Frisco to SL?

It was the current Interim Supt @ Alvord, Bill Branum.

To 10:55,

The kids that Dodge has brought in are only freshmen and sophmores, so they are going to get better.

Then, I don't see why they made a mistake in changing the coach. Dickey hadn't done anything in a few years and the program was already in this spiral.

I hope they get a better education than this guy did.

I think its sad that most of you think that Todd Dodge is/can turn around UNT Football and that Todd Dodge "inherited" and/or did the same at Southlake. The fact is Dodge didnt inherit his state championships, his state rings were bought.
Truth be told, Dodge is a horrible coach and an even worse human being. 99% of you dont know but i'll fill you in:
in' 98 Dodge overturned a school principal and head coach (with the assistance of a crooked superintendent)to become head of the Fossil Ridge High School program (Keller ISD). Dodge turned a 8-2 JV team ('97) to a 2-8 Var. team ('98) through his brilliance as a coach [started all freshman and sophmores, called it "building his program"].
As a UNT alum i am disturbed! You people are misled sheep. Do your research before you form an opinion. Dont just write about something you have no clue on.
Dodge is a horrible coach and a crooked un-ethical man. They should remove him from UNT ASAP!
