    It's really a small world. We are currently on vacation in Dublin, and I ran into a couple wearing North Texas gear. I yelled out Go Mean Green and talked to them for a few mins. It's really cool running into alumni in other countries.

    Aune looks like #2 and Martin looks like #3. Bean still tries to make up for his indecision with his legs. He does have good wheels, but then, just about everyone else does too. BV is right, Keune will probably redshirt. He does have some Fine-like qualities however. Addaway looked pretty good. He weaved through the middle of the defense for his first TD. He has very good speed, but I still haven't been able to evaluate his power running. Siggers is getting back into rhythm as a rb after spending a season at DB. White looks pretty good and Shorter made some pretty good catches, but he seemed a bit off after taking an uncomfortable fall in the endzone going for a fade pass. He got mugged most of the day by the DB's...…...as did all of the WR's. It looks like our DB's are being turned loose to go bonzai on the receivers. Hopefully they will then learn to dial it back. #20 and #40 looked good out there at LB. #32 was a monster. All the starting DL's were putting a lot of pressure on the QB's and I saw a lot of #45 and #46 around the ball when they were in there. That's good, because they both look like they are capable of jamming up the middle. just going by todays efforts, #47 seems to have the strongest leg. #49 under kicked a 50+ yrd FG attempt, and #47 had more than enough leg, he just missed. All the receivers had to battle a brutal cold gusty wind today. It never got over 48 degrees and the wind averaged around 15-20 mph. I was sooooo glad to get back into my truck.

    Hmm. AAC leadership apparently has friends in high places, but I'm legitimately wondering if that conference has figured it out.... to the point that even after Texas/OU/OSU/Kansas leave the Big12, schools like Houston & SMU won't want to join up with the Big 12 leftovers, rather staying with the AAC. If NT can keep up momentum better than we have (football & basketball), we can position ourselves nicely to fit with the Big12 leftovers if SMU decides to stick with the AAC. Also, pretty please can we get rid of McCleod & bring in someone who can run a conference? C-USA has done nothing but backslide under her leadership.

    Always glad to be reminded of how great this run has been with Fine's exceptional leadership on the field, in the locker room, in the classroom, and as part of the Denton community.

    I love super ambiguous practice updates "So I watched practice today. They threw the ball, sometimes they kicked the ball, and they kept tackling each other. Stay tuned for more updates"

    Mr. Swan, UNT is a stepping stone until we can pay our HC a 4 million dollar salary while having a 2 million dollar assistant salary pool. Though your article is enriching and positive, specifically for The Daily, it still is seemingly shooting at a moving target. We, like about 80 other FBS programs, are stepping stones. Coaches have a competitive spirit. With that, comes an enlarged EGO. They THINK they are the wonderkind and can take their philosophy and have great success with it anywhere they go (no matter that the same philosophy is being used at about 80% of programs). Since the chips are stacked against us (and about [at least] 80-90 other FBS programs) it only affords them about 30 programs where they have a legitimate shot to really win a national title. They want that shot. And since we do not have a 6 million dollar salary pool for coaches at UNT, they move on because they also want that money.

    After all the turnover over this off season could the Mean Green Coaching staff actually be improved? I think it is no ta contest the staff is improved by miles on the recruiting side. But argument could be mad the Xs and Os part is improved as well. For those living under a rock lets recap OC Graham Harrell to USC = OC Bodie Reeder Bodie come to UNT after leading Eastern Washington to a top 3 offense in FCS and a trip to the FCS National Championship game. Expect the Mean Green offense to move a lot faster next year. It will have a Briles effect. RB Tashard Choice to Georgia Tech = RB Patrick Cobbs I think this is one of the most underrated additions of the offseason. Choice was a fan favorite and a player favorite. But bringing UNT hall of famer back to coach running back is huge. He brings NFL experience and TXHSFB ties. If you have ever talked to Cobbs you can't overlook his passion for UNT. He can sell UNT better than anyone. "I came to UNT and played on Sundays" WR Joel Filani to Texas Tech = TE Adrian Mayes Adrian is the youngest of the new staff but he has already made a huge impact in the recruiting category during his time at Texas State. He also coached TE Keenan Brown who is set to be drafted in April. Look for TE to be more involved in the fall. CB Nate Brown = CB Clay Jennings Coach Jennings comes from Texas Tech. Coach Jennings another North Texas Alum headed back home.You coulld make the arguement that Jennings has been the best DB coach and recruiter in the region the last decade. He has mad stops at TCU, Arkansas, Houston and Texas Tech. He has recruited and coached several that are still playing on Sundays. LB Jeff Koonz to Ole Miss = LB Galen Scott Yes Coach Scott got in to some hot water due to infidelity. But on the football field and in recruiting he was a rising star. He was Co-DC at Memphis before being names Co-DC at Virginia Tech. He resigned to get things right with his family and for a fresh start. But to be named Co-DC with Bud Foster is an honor within itself. I am all for him getting a second chance. Reffett was with Scott at Memphis so if Reff willl vouch for him I am good with it. Offensive Quality Control John David Baker to USC = QC Tommy Mangino I think bringing in the former Big 12 WR coach and SEC QC coach is a huge upgrade. He brings experience and pedigree. I also want to throw it out there that the 4 coaches Seth was able to hang on to could be argued they are the most important to keep. Yellock and Langston can continue to develop the lines on both side of the ball. and Seth keeps both his right hand men in Mainord and Reffett. Out of the 4 assistants that left for P5 gigs all left to go back home besides Graham who go the brinks truck backed up at his house. He is making over a million next season.

    I didn't mind that. He seemed engaged with his group and was able to captivate them. Didn't like the shorts and what not, but I am sure his band loved it. Never met the guy, but from afar he seems like a genuine good dude.

    If CUSA is going to level the financial playing field, it's got to start on the gridiron. We've got two shots in 2019 to do our part... Saturday, Sept 7 - at SMU Saturday, Sept 28 - vs HOU

    If Smart had been 75% of what he was last year, we would have won at least 3-4 more games. He was a shell of himself.

    Hi ya'll - Some big news in Green Brigade world. Dr. Nicholas Williams has accepted the incredibly prestigious position as Conductor of Wind Ensembles at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music in Australia. I am super thankful for the generous spirit Dr. Williams always afforded me and his continued passion for athletics' success as a multiple degree-earned alumnus. Today, his successor was announced. From College of Music Dean John Richmond: --- Welcome Daniel Cook!

    Didn't you post before last football season that you would not go to the SMU game because we would lose? Will you go next season? Don't worry about what others do, just show up! By the way I know many residents of Denton County that graduated from UT, OU, A&M, KSU, SMU, TCU, Texas State, etc. who have Club Seats at Apogee.

    I think the article misses the biggest point regarding declining attendance. College Football fans are the ultimate homers. All they need to motivate is to hold out hope that "next year" will be the year their team goes on that magical run to the conference championship and maybe the national title. This is an underlying sentiment the fuels the passion inside of them. Everything else associated with game day completes the fan experience but is not the base sauce. More and more fans realize now that their teams chance to do anything magical is close to zero. I am not just talking G5 schools. Over half the P5 schools have close to zero chance of winning a national title. Basically the focus on creating a "true" national title game has actually hurt the sport since it is not broad based and severely diminishes the pride fans feel to be chasing "just" a conference championship. To me the obvious fix for college football is to lower the number of regular season games and instead expand the playoff format. You put HOPE back in to a fans heart and they can't get enough. Every time I see Wifi in these articles I throw up in my mouth a little.

    The lack of attendance is due to the lack of parity. There is 0 parity so why should there be increased interest. Over the last 10 years it has been boiled down to about 12 teams with a competitive advantage and real shot to win a national championship. Everyone else, including a large portion of the 'P5', have a minimal to 0% chance. The game has been monopolized with the help of the media. They push the brands that garner the eyeballs because it creates more money for them. How deep of an analysis have you heard mainstream sports media give of Indiana or Purdue? Wake Forest or Boston College? Arizona or Colorado? Vanderbilt or Mississippi State? Iowa State or Oklahoma State? The answer on any given season, season over season, is very little to none.

    If people can’t see the difference between the Big West & MWC, I don’t know what to say. I don’t know why it’s brought up by the folks who oppose the MWC. Again, when you’re talking football, you’re talking only 4 games per year in the Mountain or Pacific time zone (unless you schedule non-conference games like Cal). And those games don’t necessarily have to start late, just like many of our home games kicked off at 1:00 or 3:00 over the past few years.

    Can't be overstated.... There's one way and one way only to control us....and it's on the field. Want recruiting to improve? win those two games Want local media to pay attention? win those two games Want national attention? win those two games Want fans in the stands? win those two games Want to be seen as a top G5? win those two games All the other stuff: media, reputation, P5 bias, conference USA....we can't control that. But we can control how we play vs UH and SMU This staff simply has to win those 2 games

    its worth noting that not one guy that left was it their first offer. 2 left to go home to alma maters 1 left after turning down multiple p5 offers. Still was hesitant even after recieving the million dollar plus offer he eventually accepted 1 left to go back to his home state. And all went to P5s So it was not like these guys jumped at 1st train out of Denton

    I just found my Winter 1970, "The North Texan" .. interesting material in it. UNT was scheduled to be the first team to use Texas Stadium but that did not happen as it was not finished in time. (a UNT/Memphis game) --- Steve Ramsey was the UNT (NTSU) QB in those years .. and played in the NFL for Denver and was replaced later by Craig Morton (former Dallas Cowboy)... On the back cover is a list of NCAA records Ramsey set while playing at UNT for those three years [ Freshmen were not allowed to play on varsity then ] ....... Former record is in ( - ) 1. Most total yards --- 6568 -- ( 6354 ) 2. Most TDs responsible for { either scored or by passing) -- 71 -- ( 69) 3. Most points responsible for . ---- 436 --- ( 429 ) 4. Most pass completions --- 491 --- ( 448 ) 5. Most passing yards ----- 7076 --- ( 6495 ) 6. Most TD passes ---- 69 --- ( 51 ) 7. Most pass attempts ---- 1015 -- ( 943 ) 8. Most touchdown passes by a passer/receiver combination --- 30 (receiver was Ron Shankin who later played for Steelers in a winning Super Bowl) ________________________________ NCAA football has changed a lot since then it more a run, run league.. UNT, Tulsa, Louisville, and Cincinnati of the Missouri Valley were running an offence more like exists today. Also mentioned in this issue are "Mean" Joe Green plus players that were scheduled to play in college all star games that year --- Cedric Hardman, Ron Shanklin, and Glenn Holloway. . At the time this was published UNT was 8-3 in Basketball with wins over Cincinnati and Arizona.... Also stated is the official enrollment of that year 16,501.. 15,024 on Campus and 547 at extension centers. Graduate students made up a bit over 18%. 1 O'clock Lab band was going to tour Switzerland and Germany in June.

    I like this addition. Always glad to bring in a 3 start lineman. The fact we went to Kentucky for this guy really gives me hope that our coaches are turning over every stone to find the best linemen we can attract. Thank you coaches! Keep up the good work.
