    http://texashsfootball.com/top-5-texas-college-football-match-ups-week-1/ 4. SMU at North TexasA revenge game for North Texas as they start a new era under Seth Littrell. SMU defeated the Mean Green 31-13 last year for one of their two wins in 2015. Chad Morris had an offense that could score last year for the Ponies, but the defense wasn’t up to par. This clash between two teams looking to bring new life to their programs will be big in recruiting in the North Texas area.

    Coach Ekeler was on KGAF (Gainesville)tonight around 7:20. He stated Fred Scott, Rod Young, and Jareid Combes as having great camps so far. Also mentioned that former Gainesville, Texas Tech, and Denver Bronco DB Darcel McBath is interning with the NT staff this season.

    Honestly, I think it's laziness on behalf of the national sports writers to predict UNT will be 1-11 again. They aren't taking into account several factors from last season that those of us who follow the program know. For one, during our big embarrassing FCS loss, it appears our players had literally quit on Dan McCarney. You can disagree with me, but the more I watch it the more it appears players were intentionally missing tackles among other things. Another factor last season was that we only had 5 home games last season and no freaking bye. That's a tough schedule even for a good team. The biggest for me is that this team really appears to have bought into SL and the new coaching staff. They are young and bring a lot of energy. There's normally a boost anytime there's a new staff, hell even McCarney took a team that looked like they would have won 1 game until Chico stepped in and brought them to 1 game shy of a bowl game his first season. New system or not, I don't think just having a new coach and losing some non-contributors (aside from a couple players) is going to result in the same record as a season with all the factors mentioned above in play. I think people are really underestimating how bad the coaching and QB play was last year. Both of those are now extremely improved.

    Coach Littrell said we are going to a bowl game. I believe him, but more importantly, his players believe.

    ESPN3 is free, very accessible, and can easily be viewed on your TV via HDMI cable or Xbox. This helps with recruiting as well. I don't get why we have to bitch about everything.

    You know, CUSA with Rice, UTSA, UTEP, La Tech, and USM is still light years better than our old SBC days...

    What last year's team did on homecoming was tantamount to mutiny. Everyone associated with this team needs to prove to the fan base that they are worthy of our support. I know that sounds harsh, but the players should expect that. They took drastic measures (the homecoming beat down). Now they need to earn our trust and respect. I bleed Green, but I don't have time for quitters. I hope Coach Littrell has the team ready to play 4 quarters. If he can do that then we will be competitive. We aren't a demanding fan base. Play hard, display sportsmanship, and we will cheer for 4 quarters. Win or lose. Go Mean Green, Beat SMU!!! See you all in the stands!

    Nah. It's the direction TV is going. Tbh, UNT should be streaming every game. Apogee has the capabilities. To make it sweeter for UNT, make access to a streaming option on MG Sports a part of the MGC. Win-win.

    A good QB can win games by himself in G5 play. A great 1 can do it in P5. I'm disappointed with less than competitive in every game, including Florida. Last year we were awful and though we were blanked on the scoreboard the team was still competitive vs Tennessee. Just be competitive.

    After listening to the podcast, I got psyched for the hope of Beyond the Green returning and wanted to watch some of the old episodes. Immediately, I wanted the Sarge McCoy to be the first one I watched. It got me thinking - does anyone know what he is doing these days? Wouldn't it be great to have that guy around these young guys in some capacity? I have to wonder what last season would have been like if he was still around. I think he's an exceptional guy.

    Our family would like to announce our extreme pride in our son, Todd Eaglin's new journey. He has just been accepted into Grad School at the University of Alabama. He will also be joining basketball coach, Avery Johnson's staff as a Graduate basketball assistant. We would like to thank UNT and the UNT coaching staff for their work in assisting in this next chapter. Our family is extremely thankful to UNT, so much so that our other son was accepted into UNT this fall and will graduate from UNT also.

    That would be me. First, let's thank the Oreos for opening a can of whupass on the ASStros. Then, the lowly Angles came through again for us by sopping up the Marinaras. Seven games up on the Marinaras, 10 1/2 up on the ASStros...life is good for us Ranger fans. Now if I could ward off the mini-strokes with a Shiner...hey, it is lunchtime. Then later today, we suit up in Tampa for the first of three with the... RAYS.

    April 29. http://www.dentonrc.com/local-news/local-news-headlines/20160430-demolition-work.ece?ssimg=2746528 The center section of the bridge is complete and has a road surface on it now, but the outside section are still in progress. This feeder road closure on Friday night is probably to let them lay some pavement to connect NTX Blvd to the bridge surface.

    I realize the hole he is starting in, but I will be very disappointed with less than 3 wins. At least Littrell appears to have a D1 QB at his disposal, which we did not have the last 2 years. I admit at this point is is mostly just hope.

    I agree. I think it's mainly about much improved defense and QB play, and I believe that we will get both to at least a reasonable degree. I'm not ready to throw in the towel until I see evidence on the field that tells me to do so. Of course there's no doubt that this team has got to stay relatively healthy in several areas. I'm really looking forward to the opener and we're almost there.

    It is. 5 games not on TV this season. 2 seasons ago, every game was on TV, last season, only the Portland St game wasn't televised. Big time let down.

    I was very sorry to hear of Kaydon's dad passing away this past year and completely understood his stepping away to be with his family. However, I really expected him to make a return to the team this fall. Especially with the need for experienced offensive lineman and the fact that he has pro potential (if he was interested in pursuing a pro career). And after having some time to spend with his family, it seemed to make sense, at least to me, that getting back on the field with his team could help him heal and honor his dad's legacy. I don't know Kaydon or his family, so there may be other factors in this situation, but I just thought for sure (and really hoped) he would decide to come back. Regardless, I pray he can find peace and comfort as he and his family move forward. Anyone have any additional insight about this?

    I've heard he is first to show up for practice and last to leave.... watches film all weekend long instead of partying... coach on the field. You know, the type that plays way above his talent level because he is so prepared... 2 words.... Lunch Pail

    I have waaaaay more faith in Littrell than I ever did in Dodge (which was constantly zero), but the latter proudly proclaimed that his "system" was going to shock the world, starting with a road game at Oklahoma. I'll wait for results.

    See, I've been watching pulley systems all summer, and given all the evidence, it should raise up for 4,000 yards and 45 touchd- oh wait where am I?

    It shouldn't take long at all. But if someone isn't paying attention or something, a kicked football could crack that scoreboard. It's not a matter of how fast the pulley system works, it's how fast the person utilizing the pulley system works.

    Just unscrew the Jumbotron and set it up a couple of feet higher. I'll bring out a set of screwdrivers, wrenches, and a rachet set, and we'll work on it during practice. I'll need someone to hold one end after I unscrew it and go to unscrew the other side. Volunteers?
