    I had a young man come over this morning (Sat) to mow my yard. He showed up in an Arkansas sweatshirt. I asked him what his Arkansas connection was. He said he doesn't like it anymore and only wears it to mow yards. He said he stopped liking Arkansas after the North Texas game. GO MEAN GREEN

    Hi - Thank you all for the posts! It is all so interesting to me and my family. My dad was Steve Ramsey the QB you are speaking of. My son, John Stephen, is now 8 and loves football! He is also so interested in looking up his stats etc. on the internet. It has been really fun and interesting to see these posts and hear about my dad. I really miss him. He died in 1999. Keep the info coming! (ie I didn't know they were suppose to play in Texas Stadium, but it wasn't finished!!!) Thanks - Kim Ramsey Kavanagh

    It's just misplaced virtue signaling. Nobody here disagrees with honoring veterans but it wasn't really germane to this post on this board.

    Just picked up my 2019 edition of DCTF. Thought I’d start a thread where folks could share their thoughts on this year’s offering. One of the greatest things I noticed was that while they list NORTH TEXAS AT SOUTHERN MISS as UNT’s Game of the Year, they list SMU’s Game of the Year as SMU VS. NORTH TEXAS. Greatness.

    Jalen Guyton came to Edinburg in South Texas today to have a combine style camp for kids of all ages. Even threw up the talon. Good luck to Jalen.

    I was talking to a guy I know who played LB at SMU just after the Death Penalty. I asked him if he pays any attention to SMU much these days and he was quite frank in saying no. I asked why and he said, "Look, I went to SMU when we were in the SWC. I played Texas, Arkansas, A&M, Tech, and Baylor, plus teams like Notre Dame in OOC play. I've tried to care after that, but its impossible to care about anyone on our schedule except for TCU and maybe Houston." I told him that as a North Texas guy, this was a big game every year and we have it about as good as we ever have had it, conference wise, as well as playing SMU every year. He didn't even know we played them in OOC. He just shook his head and said, "And people wonder why nobody follows SMU anymore..." Arrogance meeting apathy...only thing I agreed with him about was that this was an incredible fall from the top of FBS to not even being thought of anymore in the college football world. Couldn't have happened to a better group of a$$holes.

    Mods can move if they wish, but when any of our teams are playing for conference championships, it should get football board publicity. Opponent is Middle Tennessee. Double Header Saturday beginning at 1pm. Game 3 on Sunday at noon. If NT wins all three it is guaranteed the CUSA regular season championship and #1 seed in the conference tournament by virtue of its head to head tiebreaker with La Tech. We need to pack the stadium this weekend with fans. Even if you haven't paid the least bit of attention to softball so far this year, make a point to go out and support. If you demand big time wins before supporting a team, well this team has them. Two top 25 wins including one over a top 10 team (and that team is STILL in the top 10 today). Almost certainly the biggest series in the history of NT softball. Let's pack the stadium for it. GMG!

    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.

    I feel like the narrative online is omitting some key points: - the family that owns this property is wealthy, so it is not like they don’t have the ability to move nearby. The son is interviewed but I believe the father owns the property and the tax info fowards to a million dollar home. - despite this wealth this whole section of four buildings has not had meaningful investment in forever, the buildings and pavement are in poor shape and that is being generous. - they are being offered $700k almost triple the tax value for a small building built in the 60’s. So school bullies young hard working owner is the easy narrative to write but I feel there is a more accurate one that hasn’t been put forth.

    Christian is slated to be a Hybrid TE. Will play majority spread out but will come down on the line to block and prevent defenses from switching personnel in a high tempo offense.

    Not directed at you, but none of this downplays freaking D-Day. Everyone knows it was a pivotal moment in a brutal war where the good guys sacrificed so much and won out. America is freaking great, but you know what, Mason Fine is great, too! Maybe not America great, but still great. Also my sister's birthday is 6/6. We just yell at her NO PRESENTS FOR YOU JERK BECAUSE IT DOWNPLAYS HOW MUCH SACRIFICE THIS COUNTRY HAS GIVEN UP. Misplaced, misguided, and sanctimonious. Of effing course we should be commemorating American sacrifices that happened on that specific day, but those exact sacrifices have allowed the rest of the world to keep going and we all appreciate it. Not to mention there were pivotal battles over different continents happening on different dates and different wars.

    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.

    I don't think that is the issue here. You are right. It is a day to remember all of those who lost their lives 75 years ago on that beach. However, I don't know this is the place to be telling people no, they can't get excited about Fine for Heisman or the launch of this website bc if falls on the same day as D Day. Nothing but love for my fellow Mean Green here... just hoped you would understand the reactions you are getting are not bc people don't respect themselves or anything else. GMG

    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.

    Cal fan here. While our LB unit is good, our DB’s are elite. Phil Steele ranks our defensive backfield as the 2nd best in the country, behind only LSU’s. Mason Fine should test them. He’s a very good QB. Best of luck to you. I look forward to the game.

    Going from #Hit6 to #6ForHeisman in 5 years. Damn it feels good that the minimum expectation is a bowl game at this point. Used to be that was the end goal. What a difference a competent AD and HC can make.

    It seems we always talk about the future contract of Littrell and how much we're going to pay the next coach etc etc, but I think at this point, extending/giving a raise to Wren Baker should be the number 1 priority on Smatresk's list. After Softball captured a conference title with yet another one of Wren Baker's hires, the proof is in the pudding to me. Maybe I'm still a bit jaded because a monkey humping a doorknob would be more effective than RV, but Baker has been next level in comparison. This guy is a bonafied AD and I'm of the mindset that we should be doing everything necessary to keep him. Just a thought I had after this year's string of success

    I normally love the battle flag design. But, I think it is too big and would look washed out on TV and in the stands. Personally, I would love to see the battle flag incorporated as a smaller feature in one of the existing designs. Maybe something like this: With a design like this, on TV the battle flag would really stand out because most of the action centers around the key. Just MHO.

    I think everyone knows he can’t win a Heisman no matter what. But this puts him out there to more mainstream fans and perhaps aids his chances at other awards (O’Brien perhaps) and the NFL draft. It also promotes the NT Mean Green brand, which is always a good thing.

    I hope they make him throw it from deep center field with 1:09 on the clock and no timeouts. Thanks for representing us so well Mason. GO MEAN GREEN

    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"

    “No upside”? The guy has us playing some of the best football we’ve played in decades... Baker & Smatresk give him a ~10% raise (which keeps him very happy here & thinking twice/pulling out of P5 offers), and there’s “no upside”?

    NDSU fan here. You will not be disappointed with Geu. Dude works hard and has some nice post moves. Can hit an occasional 3. Not a bad defender and has ability to guard players bigger or smaller than him. Sad to see him leave, as I really thought he deserved more playing time.

    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.
