    Softball Finds Final Piece to Puzzle
    Official roster
    DENTON - When North Texas softball lost four seniors to graduation and a handful of other players, head coach Tracey Kee knew a long summer full of recruiting lie ahead for her and her staff. Fortunately for the future of the rising program, the four-time conference Coach-of-the-Year and two-time NFCA Mideast Region Staff-of-the-Year were more than up for the task.
    Approximately 20 tournaments, six states and countless miles later, Kee and her staff have assembled an 11-athlete incoming class, the largest of her coaching career. At East Carolina, Kee’s second largest recruiting class of nine athletes led her to back-to-back Conference USA Championships and NCAA Tournament appearances in 2010 and 2011.
    Given the previous success of one of the C-USA’s winningest coaches, it may be safe to say North Texas softball is merely reloading instead of rebuilding as a program. One thing is for certain, Mean Green fans can be excited about the many new faces that will be seen on the diamond this coming school year.
    The newest face to the crowd, outfielder Hannah Gerecke, makes for a solid final piece to the puzzle. At La Grange High School (TX), Gerecke racked up 113 career wins and just eight total losses, including a 22-4 state playoff record.
    After overcoming an ACL injury during her freshman year, Gerecke led the Lady Leopards to at least the regional final round for three consecutive years, including a state semifinal appearance in 2013 and the Class 3A Texas State Championship in 2014. In addition to having the state title under her belt, Gerecke was decorated with multiple all-district honors throughout her career and was named a Texas Girls Coaches Association all-star in 2015 to cap it all off.
    Kee on Hannah: “Hannah is a solid student-athlete who understands the importance of balancing academics and athletics. She’s a hard nose player who will add a level to our team’s toughness. She can create things offensively with her deceptive power and foot speed. She’s a true competitor who understands the commitment involved to be successful on this level. Her addition to our outfield will give our staff many opportunities to solidify our last line of defense. The ‘grass players’ who often go unnoticed, yet play an important part in all of our defensive philosophies. We are very excited to be adding her and her family to our Mean Green program.”

    Why Gerecke chose North Texas: “I’ve always dreamt of playing at a division one school. It was an absolute blessing to me when Coach Kee watched me play and found an interest in me. I am honored that she took a chance on me and I can’t to see what the future has in store for my academic and athletic careers at North Texas.”

    How Western Kentucky football can become the Talk of the Town
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – You won’t find the Western Kentucky football team on Phil Steele’s list of Most Improved College Football teams for 2015, a list that includes 15 programs.
    Western did not qualify because the Hilltoppers closed the 2014 season by toppling unbeaten Marshall and Central Michigan.
    That bumped WKU to 8-5 – and the Hilltoppers were this close to beating Illinois, Middle Tennessee and UAB. Steele does not consider any team coming off a winning season eligible for his list.
    But consider this: What if the Hilltoppers bounce into Nashville Sept. 3 and open their season by handling Vanderbilt on the SEC Network? WKU is only a 2 ½-point underdog.
    WKU has started its season by defeating a Southeastern Conference program in Nashville before, right? Last season Vandy looked as if it was back to being Vandy.
    Then WKU returns to Bowling Green to open its home schedule against Louisiana Tech, a team that lost its defensive coordinator (Manny Diaz) and could be relying on erratic arm of Florida transfer Jeff Driskel at quarterback.
    Who do you like in a quarterback shootout – Driskel or Brandon Doughty of WKU?

    BARNUM REFUSES TO LISTEN TO VIKING SKEPTICS
    Portland State is deep at several positions, particularly on offense where Barnum should have multiple candidates to choose from at quarterback, running back and wide receiver.
    ‘Cautiously optimistic’ could be the most apropos phrase describing the anticipation around the Vikings heading into the new season, even though Barnum is the first to acknowledge PSU is far from a perfect team and, like most teams in the Big Sky and elsewhere, has flaws.
    “We have holes at certain spots,” Barnum admitted. “But I also think we are pretty darned good at some spots. We’ll be competitive in the Big Sky. This game is 90 percent mental. Right now, the attitude of our guys will get us to the fourth quarter. I would be surprised if that wasn’t the case in every game.”
    Summer workouts will wrap up soon as the Vikings transition into preseason camp. Based on the feedback he has received, Barnum described summer workouts as ‘strong.’
    “Our guys are doing well. The attendance has been very good,” Barnum said. “I have no complaints about summer workouts.”
    Little has changed regarding the quarterback position. Four signal callers (Kieran McDonagh, Paris Penn, Josh Kraght, Alex Kuresa) were locked into a spirited, ‘too close to call’ competition when spring practice concluded in late April.

    Best shot @bowl this year, UNT or SMU?
    Which team has the best shot at a bowl this year, UNT or SMU?
    Gosselin: SMU. The quarterback situation at North Texas remains too unsettled for the Mean Green to clear the muck this season.

  11. Harry added a post in a topic Coach Mac   


    As much as I hate to say it hit 6 may be the realistic goal for this schedule Rick.  I don't agree or appreciate your statement that we have low expectations here.  We've had one winning season in a decade. Think about that.  I think our fans still hanging in there and putting their hard earned dollars and time toward this program are the least of our issues.

  12. Harry added a post in a topic Five things UNT must to do improve in 2015   

    To follow 86's point, I would say my biggest concern is quality depth.  Last year when Lee  and Lincoln got injured you could tell the defense really suffered.
    C-USA is becoming a league where you need two lines deep.  UTEP's coach realizes this and when he arrived he had like 14 scholarship receivers.  He has since pared this down and moved those spots over to the hogs.

  13. Harry added a post in a topic Gosselin: How can North Texas football emerge from obscurity?   

    Would love to do an impromptu quiz of Lee Jackson, the BOR and mayor of Denton, city council etc..
    1).  What conference is UNT in
    2).  Who is their football head coach
    3).  What was their record last year?
    My guess is if you asked the same questions in Boise they would know the answers and be able to go even deeper...

    Taking a look at the Toppers' 2015 opponents
    NORTH TEXAS
    Mean Green coach Dan McCarney and his players were adamant at media day that greater leadership is what could make the difference for UNT this season.
    “I like the development of this team since last January,” McCarney said. “I think we’re ahead of last year at this time – believe we are, hope we are, think we are. I think leadership-wise and the chemistry of the team, the seniors have done a really good job so far.”
    North Texas will need that leadership for the long haul.
    The Mean Green have a bye the first week of the season before beginning a run of 12 straight games that includes nonconference games against Iowa and Tennessee.
    “When you go 12 games without an open week – five home games, eight bowl-eligible teams – the challenges are many,” McCarney said. “But we’ve known about this schedule for a long time, so we’ve got to get ready for it. It’s not getting ready for us.”

    Key Difference:  Chris Peterson.
    Chris was hired 2001 as a coordinator by then Boise Coach Dan Hawkins.
    He went on to be head coach at Boise in 2005 and the thing just exploded.
    In 2006 they went undefeated and the BOR approved an $850K a year salary because they realized his immense value.  He would stay until 2013 despite many suitors and tons more money.
