Considering they are playing Long Beach State in College Station, I think it qualifies as a neutral site. Looks like a strong schedule.
a neutral site......in College Station lol.

You have to respect that even though we will be pretty young this year due to just losing a great senior class, we still play a very competitive non-conference schedule.

To the soccer guys : How is conference USA ? Strong programs ? Will we be able to come in and compete right away ?
Conference USA is a level above the Sunbelt based on the number of teams that traditionally get invites to the NCAA tournament. There are many years when CUSA will field two teams to the dance. I don't believe the Sunbelt has ever fielded more than one team, the conference tournament champion. Memphis, SMU, Colorado College and UCF all have had traditionally good programs. All but a few teams have had success one year or another (balanced conference) . 8 of the 12 teams had winning records last year.. That being said UNT will immediately compete in the upper level of the new conference a could potentially win a conference championship their first year. In 2013, Memphis their traditional power house will be moving to the Big East along with two very good programs in SMU and UCF. Note: They beat Houston & SMU ( the third best team in CUSA) last year. UNT traditionally will compete and more often win verse larger confernce teams including the Big 12.. In recent years they have included victories verse teams like (TCU, SMU, Oklahoma, TX Tech, Iowa State, Baylor) and competitive matches verse teams like Ohio State and TX A&M.
In a nutshell the soccer was probably ready to make the jump to a larger conference 10 years ago.....

Excellent schedule...early games should well prepare the Mean Green for the Conference race. Of course, the Mean Green will depart the Sunbelt after winning the conference crown. Bring on CUSA!!!!
North Texas should be the premier program of CUSA when they arrive in 2013. Memphis was one of the best in the nation and UCF was North Texas' equal but both are departing. If history prevails our toughest competition will come from FIU, East Carolina and UTEP but I like our chances.
