  1. 21. Mason Fine, Jr. North Texas A smallish, fun baller, he'll be at the helm of one of college football's most dangerous offenses, coming off a 4,052-yard, 31-score season. Get ready for him to bomb away and push for a 40-touchdown pass campaign for the electrifying attack. read more: https://a.msn.com/r/2/AAzvFfC?m=en-us&referrerID=InAppShare

  3. On the opening drive in Saturday afternoon’s spring game at Apogee Stadium, junior quarterback Mason Fine hit junior Rico Bussey for a 52-yard gain across the middle of the field. A few plays later he found sophomore running back Evan Johnson for a 10-yard score. The next possession, redshirt senior Quinn Shanbour threw a short pass to redshirt sophomore Keegan Brewer. The Kansas transfer took it 49 yards to the house for a touchdown. During the fourth series, the offense was held to 4th and 1, but they confidently elected to go for it. Sophomore running back DeAndre Torrey took the handoff up the middle, bounced it outside, and sprinted for a 55-yard score. Scoring looked easy for the offense. “I think we came out with a lot of energy and I thought we executed well,” Fine said. “Defense kind’ve had our number all spring so it was good to come out here and kind’ve get the upper hand on them today but I felt like guys came out with the right energy and right mindset.” Coming out with three touchdowns on four possessions, it looked as though the offense would comfortably control the spring game. But the defense turned the tables with adjustments and stops in the backfield. The defense compiled a total of 10 tackles for loss and stopped the offense from scoring on 12 of their 17 drives but still lost the game 44-23 to the offense. “We just got tired of getting beat on deep balls,” sophomore safety Tyreke Davis said. “[We had] a lack of focus in the secondary then we harped a lot on our technique. We just had to step it up late.” View Full Article
  4. Interesting to consider this fantasy matchup. 2013 had the better D but 2017 O has put up huge numbers. 2013 did not get to the championship game but was damn close. 2013 has more seniors and vets. 2017 had better skill positions. Two of the best in modern history, perhaps all of our history.

    AD: "Mighty Fine" it is

    So uh, does this settle this particular debate?
  6. North Texas trailed Southern Miss 21-14 with 45 seconds remaining in the first half in Week 5. Following a loss on first down and false start, they faced a 2nd-and-16 from their own 14-yard-line. Instead of packing it in, Mean Green head coach Seth Littrell showed trust in his sophomore quarterback. Mason Fine faked the handoff to running back Jeffery Wilson, took a five-step drop and launched deep to Caleb Chumley for a 43-yard gain that set up a last-second field goal. Yep, Fine's shoulder is just . . . fine. Fine was the lone quarterback signee in Littrell's first class in Denton. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound two-star recruit from Oklahoma committed to the program during a visit in January 2016, seven weeks after Littrell, also a native Oklahoman, was hired. “After Seth saw the film, he said, ‘I’ve got to have this guy," recalled Matt Hennesy, Fine's coach at Locust Grove High School. “I’ve been doing this for 25 years, and Mason is the best high school quarterback I’ve seen.” read more: https://m.herosports.com/college-football/north-texas-football-mason-fine-start-ahah
  7. If undersized small-school superstar Keiton Page was given an opportunity to thrive in a Big 12 basketball program, why wasn’t undersized small-school superstar Mason Fine offered a scholarship to throw major-college touchdown passes in Oklahoma? At Locust Grove, Fine was the 2014 Tulsa World state player of the year and in 2015 repeated as the Gatorade Oklahoma player of the year. Because Fine is listed at 5-foot-11 but actually stands about 5-10 — about 3 inches shorter than the minimum preferred height for an FBS quarterback — there was no scholarship offer from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State or the University of Tulsa. Today? Fine is the sophomore starting quarterback at the University of North Texas and already the veteran of 14 starts. His offensive coordinator is former Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell. As TU experiences its lowest level of passing-game productivity in 22 years, Fine leads Conference USA in passing at 288.4 yards per game. Considering that Locust Grove High School is only 46 miles from TU’s H.A. Chapman Stadium, and that Fine’s career totals on passing yards and touchdown passes were the best in state history, it’s natural to envision what might have been if the Hurricane had signed him. Might Fine have done for Golden Hurricane coach Philip Montgomery what he is doing for North Texas coach Seth Littrell? Might TU’s numbers and record be better? read more: http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/tu/bill-haisten-now-thriving-at-north-texas-how-might-mason/article_52866006-464b-581e-b261-88f19d32fd65.html
  8. If the season goes as it should from here on, we're gonna be talking about "The Drive" for a LONG time! If anyone questions Mason Fine again, it should be a perma-ban. Incredible toughness. There's a reason they call Mike Lawrence 'The Standard'. Incredible concentration on that sideline grab! Plus, Rico!!!!!!! Great Night! Go Mean Green!
  9. "He's extremely accurate. He anticipates really well. When you watch him on video, you wouldn't think he was a sophomore," SMU head coach Chad Morris said. "This guy looks more comfortable and more confident. That's what you expect in a second-year player." https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/smumustangs/2017/09/06/smu-wants-see-young-defensive-secondary-grow-unt
  10. I heard this, did not see it. Also heard he could be ready for UTEP game? Anyone heard anything else on this?
  11. I don't post this to take anything away from our starter and the main man Alec Morris. He's the guy and I'm thrilled to have him here. After watching the Littrell press conference though, I remain extremely intrigued by true freshman QB Mason Fine. Littrell is an honest read, and I felt like his description of Fine was sincere. Litrell has seen some good QB's in his time and today for him to say "I was as impressed with him as I was any freshman quarterback I have been around in a long time" speaks volumes. This is a kid who has really made an impression on Littrell and the rest of the staff. It's exciting to think of his potential in this offense especially in 2-3-4 years. In fact, it's damn exciting. Went back and looked up some old articles from when Fine committed. There was one that really jumped out from an Oklahoma paper. John Hoover of Tulsa World wrote, "Sooners interested in Locust Grove QB Mason Fine, but he says 'no thanks'". The articles verifies that his dream school OU came in late with a preferred walk-on offer, and OSU had done the same prior. So maybe it was the right thing for them to do. He was of course a repeat winner of the Oklahoma Gatorade Player of the Year. Or perhaps, OU and OSU thought he had a little something. I know from watching him in the scrimmage, he's a fun player to watch. He knows this offense cause he ran it in high school. His UNT teammates say he is a "worker". He is also an honor student. I look forward to following his career at UNT.
