    Big congrats to the Mean Green fans that have been waiting for this for awhile. Not a win over us. I’m talking about winning the regular season crown. That’s one hella accomplishment this year. The conference isn’t as good at the top as it was 3 years ago when Middle, ODU, Marshall, and Western were all top 100. But....there are basically no gimmes this year. You have to bring your game every single night. So very impressive job by your squad. I said on our board and CUSA board awhile back of all the teams I’d seen this year in conference you guys were best and La Tech was right there with you. The rest of us can win games but I thought you two were at the top and nothing I’ve seen since has changed my mind on it. Do we have a chance to win the tourney? We do but then again we could easily take a loss in the first game in the tourney as well. Even when we had Bassey I thought we could win any game on our schedule but also thought there wasn’t a single game on the schedule I would have marked down as a gimme. Once we lost him we’re the size of a decent high school team. I’ve been amazed at the games we’ve won. I’ve never thought much of Stans as a bench coach and he still drives me nuts but he’s done a decent job with this group. Him adding a press to this group has really helped us. It turns teams over some but what it mainly does is shortens the time a team can get in its offense. Because if they have time they have a pretty easy job of scoring on us in straight up defense. I met Tasty Greek and his boys several years back and know there are a lot of huge hoops fans at UNT so I just wanted to drop by and congratulate you bunch on a job very well done.

    I disagree. He does have something special figured out. He has something special figured out in how he treats people, most importantly his players. I’ve sat behind or near behind the bench for three years now. I’ve never seen players take such an ass chewing for not doing their job with better attitudes. They believe in him and I’ve never seen more love and respect between coach and player at NT than I have seen with this group. Rick

    We're still playing to get the highest seed possible in the NCAA Tournament. To me it's simple, everyone plays.

    DENTON – The North Texas football program and Vice President/Director of Athletics Wren Baker announced Friday that the Mean Green have agreed to a home-and-home series with the University of Missouri. The Mean Green are scheduled to host the Tigers in Denton in 2030 and travel to Columbia, Missouri, in 2031. "I'm very pleased we were able to schedule a home-and-home series with Missouri," Baker said. "Upgrading the quality of our non-conference home schedule continues to be a focus point for us. I appreciate the work of Jared Mosley in helping assemble our future schedules as well. Scheduling is a time intensive exercise and Jared has done a great job of landing quality non-conference home-and-home series." These scheduled meetings will be the second and third for the Mean Green against Missouri. The Tigers knocked off the Mean Green 28-7 in 1995 in Columbia in the season-opener.

    My kids disappeared into the backyard for a couple hours. Turns out they were making a highlight video...oh, and James Reese plays football now too. 075A88E4-9CAE-4855-AB7C-3283406FE360.MOV

    I know we may be disappointed in the attendance given the stakes. But that 4500 was LOUD. My kids were covering their ears. When the Pit is loud it’s so electric. 8,000+ would be un-manageable by a road team. I haven’t had that much fun there since the OK State win. And it was my youngest’s first game at the Pit. They had a blast and can’t wait to go to Frisco

    guys... things are going really well.. .i just completed the 2021 season on NCAA 13... as an update, we moved to the Big 12 in 2020, and although the first two years have not produced a national championship, we have won the Rose Bowl... the flipping longhorns beat us last year though... we just fell behind early and couldn't make up the deficit. although there was a lot of pressure on me as the head coach, i decided to go ahead and sign a contract extension over the next 4 years to stay in Denton.

    Never seen this before, 6th inning two out & two strikes on batter with Katie Clark on second! Coach Delong calls for a bunt (?) the batter squares up and the pitch is well outside the plate...Katie steals third since the coach is calling for a sacrifice, right. Catcher under throws the ball to third so it goes out to left field. Katie scores! When we they finally get the third out Coach Delong comes back he's laughing his head off since he lost count and screwed up the CALL but it worked. He had to hide his face in his hat since he was laughing so much at what he did. Good man! we all had a good laugh. The sad thing is that UIW's SB field was really impressive compared to utsa's dump. It's all syn. OF & IF. utsa's seating made you think that you were in the center seat and an airplane. You had to go outside of the field to use the head. I was told that our team really has a problem with slow pitching ( that's pretty obvious Saturday and early today. Final UNT 11 them 4 (really only two ER's). They are going to redo the SB dugout's (sink them) and enlarge the stands for Coach Delong. He's really happy at UNT he told me prior to the game. So, we can have bigger events at UNT (conf.tournament's ). And... a new scoreboard Too. They asked him about moving the field and he said he's happy with where it's at! I'm really impressed and what the parents told me about him and the ladies. Go see them play. It was lot's of fun.

    Play this game like every other game. Not a time to develop bad habits, play to win.

    Play to win. We will have a long break before our next game and we don’t have the luxury of losing a game if we want the best seed we can get post season.

    I don’t want to hear it about fouls (though I predicted there would be whining about it). Hollingsworth scored the 22 he did because he constantly created space...with an off-arm push off.

    My cousin is in the hospital on a ventilator fighting for his life against COVID-19. A couple of you may have met him several years back when he used to tailgate with me. He and his wife were football season ticket holders when one of their sons was in the Green Brigade. They kept their season tickets but then discontinued when my cousin was battling pulmonary fibrosis, resulting in a double lung transplant. There is an effort underway to get COVID-19 survivors to donate plasma. There is belief that their plasma can help those that are struggling with the virus. If you know of any survivors, please pass the Facebook group below on to them. It was put together by my cousin’s father-in-law. Prayers are welcomed as well. https://www.facebook.com/groups/507716073250326/?ref=share

    Sure this isn't the most football related, but I feel like the football board is where the most action is and I want us to be able to help other Mean Green. Obviously COVID-19 has taken a hit on more than a few of us (sickness/employment-wise) and our businesses, no matter if we're in Austin, Dallas, Houston, or elsewhere. Would love to get a list going of Mean Greeners who need a job, some extra help, or Mean Green-owned businesses (and where) that we can patronize (ordering online) to help them out. I know in Austin, Austin Gourmet Popcorn, and Lambert's could use some love.

    Last night I dreamed I was attending a Mean Green football game at Apogee Stadium with a full house in attendance. Before the game started, the Army Golden Knights Parachute Team jumped (disclaimer: I was an Army paratrooper, but never close to being a Golden Knight). At the end of the game, we all ran out on the field and were not observing social distancing. So, what does it all mean? That maybe the quarantine was over, and we had defeated the virus? we played Army in a bowl game and beat them? who knows? But it was good to be there once more to see the Mean Green take the field. Okay, off to bed to see what comes next.

    Yeah, but in my dream Mason Fine threw a sixty-five yard Hail Mary with no time left on the clock to give the Dallas Cowboys a Super Bowl win over the 49ers. The Mean Green beat Alabama for the national championship. I had a date every night of the week with a different Dallas Cowboy cheerleader ! Then the jailer woke us up and emptied out the drunk tank. (Oh by the way, I was in the 82nd Airborne so I think we may suffer from the same dream disorder) ✈️

    Not sure who's running the account, but someone out there is tweeting a simulation of the 2020 March Madness bracket released by the New York Post on March 16... Regarding NT's Round of 64 matchup with Oregon... Next Up? Kinda depressing but it's all we've got. The imaginary hope of a Sweet 16 showdown with Mr. Woolridge & Co.

    Meh, it’s a bit of both. Both extremes are silly. COVID-19 is much more lethal than the usual seasonal flu, but the ‘cancel everything so it looks like are are doing something’ is also silly. It looks like you mostly catch this disease from breathing, unless you’re planning on stopping that you are kind of hosed. We really can’t shut down everything everywhere for months or years until a vaccine is tested and ready. COVID-19 will likely get worse in terms of death totals. It’s scary because it’s so new, but it’s possible that this could end up killing less people than other causes of death this year. Much as in a wilderness survival situation panic kills more than the elements, even if the elements claim their share. Obviously if you are personally affected it feels worse, much like a highway fatality is worse if you know the dead than it is for those just stuck in traffic. Don't freak out and fight over TP, stay away from others as much as practical if you’re ill and stay away from both extremes (sky is falling and nothing is happening).

    Most of the people upset about this who are calling it an overreaction probably won’t change their minds until it hits close enough to home for them. Or until it has reached high enough confirmed infection/death numbers to where they can’t keep posting the same meme comparing COVID-19 numbers to flu numbers. Hopefully by taking precautions like this these people can still look back in a few months and think they were right about calling these actions overreactionary. But in reality these measures may be the reason we can prevent it from getting to the point it is in over in Italy.

    So, UNT Marketing should take this opportunity to tout how we were an "all-time" Cinderella story and we can declare the Mean Green the 2020 NCAA champions!!

    Co-Player of the WeekJAVION HAMLET, NORTH TEXASRedshirt Junior, 6-4, 191, G, Memphis, Tennessee Hamlet led North Texas to its first regular season league title in 31 years by averaging 19.5 points, 8.5 assists with a 2.8 assist/turnover ratio and 5.0 rebounds in a pair of Group 1 victories at FIU and against WKU in the Super Pit. In the win over the Toppers, Hamlet led all scorers with 25 points and nine assists in a seesaw bout that saw the Mean Green capture the C-USA regular-season title.

    WKU has the brand to bring in one or two extremely high profile recruits. Maybe not every season but it sure seems like it. But, you know.... 78-72 and all. 🤣
