  1. Probably not the proper forum, but I have to post anyway. My daughter just got accepted to UNT! She will be a Freshman next fall. She is also trying out for the North Texas Dancers in June and will study Psychology. So proud to see her following in the old man’s footsteps. She has been a member of the Mean Green Nation since birth, now it’s official! GMG.

  7. Congrats. She'll have a great college experience. Here's another story about the growth of the Mean Green Nation. I live up here in Newtown, CT (small New England town) and my daughter started at North Texas last year. The very first student from Newtown High School to go to UNT according to the schools's Naviance system! So, last Friday night we were having dinner at our local Indian restaurant, it was cold so there was only one other couple at a table next to us. We're regulars there so we know all the staff and asked where everyone was, etc. and they said it was all takeout

  10. Frankly I love the stadium and the layout. Game day experience has really gotten a lot better the last couple of years! Obviously this piece is not accurate. Maybe they should consider season tickets, park right next to the entrance! Maybe even tailgate some before the game if they want! #GMG

  14. UNTlifer you have been correct all season about Shorter as the fastest guy on the team. This summer they clocked him at 24 MPH in the 60 yard with a GPS tracking. Just a side note for you

  15. Depends how he (and the team) finishes the season out. I hope we can torch Rice next weekend but they've been stingy all season and played a lot of good teams close. UAB doesn't seem to have the same defense they had last year. It's a shame it's taken most of the season for the offense to get going (minus the debacle at La Tech).

  17. My pre-season prediction of a 12-0 season, a conference championship, a bowl win, and seeing Mason Fine named as the 2019 Heisman winner is looking less and less likely.

  18. Only way to reverse that shit is to win. Only way to win and win championships is by building from a defense-first mentality. Since selling our soul to the offensive gods in 2007 we’re 58-101 with zero championships. DEFENSE! Rick

  19. Once again, Mason is a great player, but this "once in a lifetime" and "generational player" talk is way premature. Sure, some things probably are. He basically started all 4 years. It may be a while before we have that again. He is an incredible underdog story, ultimately becoming what will probably be a top 30 all time NCAA passer. We may not get another one of those for a long time because it pretty much requires starting all four years. But I refuse to believe we will never have another elite quarterback.

  20. UH was very good in football and basketball in the 60 and 70s, which made the SWC have to give them a look. Also, Rice was dying on the vine in Houston, so the SWC wanted to pro up that market. In DFW, you had TCU and SMU already and we got good just after UH got admitted and the privates saw how successful UH was right away, so adding us was a non-starter. What drives me insane to this day is that Hayden Fry/North Texas only limited themselves to the SWC. The Big Eight would have been the perfect conference for us to join and help grow into Texas. At the time, OU was the only team that p

  22. It’s yet another way we see the uphill road we have to walk to be relevant in this area, much less state or region. The SWC media legacy around here is still strong. I’ve never seen a group more interested in seeing a team succeed like they all do with SMU. It’s like they feel bad that they brought them down for cheating and they got the Death Penalty for it and never recovered for decades. Meanwhile, this same group of people thinks we are super spare to even have a football program and that we most be spat upon at ANYTHING we achieve. Seriously, Apogee is about 10x nicer than Ford Stadi

  23. This is absolutely ridiculous. If they were talking about Fouts that would be one thing, but Apogee? Apogee is one of the finest around, especially when it's full and loud. This is very biased.

  24. Mason isn't getting drafted, IMO. He had a chance, if we had been able to protect him and given him the defensive help to win more games and put up the kind of gaudy numbers he did in a few games this year. He would have had to be in the national conversation, both through wins and numbers. For reference, Minshew won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm award, broke Jared Goff's Pac12 passing yardage record, won 11 games, was the Pac12 Offensive Player of the Year, and finished 5th in Heisman voting. He went in the 6th round.

  25. Because we've whiffed on OLine recruiting for years, and we don't have the correct OL coach to make lemonade out of lemons. Plain & simple. EDIT: The interior linemen have been OK. Tackles (outside of Mayfield) have not.

  26. As much as I love Mason, for some reason it is hard for me to see him being drafted. I really hope he does, but I think a lot of teams are going to be concerned about durability.

  29. Oh Crap, I forgot about that! I guess there wasn't a press conference since there was a bye week so we will have to wait to see. Hopefully Mason's head injury wasn't significant to linger for two weeks.

  37. More like a Satellite TV company. We got him on a contract with a “promotional” price. Of course, we don’t mind paying that price because we like the channels. And hey, they happened to randomly upgrade our existing package with 3-4 extra channels we love. Then, after year three, the “promotional” discounts roll off & they take Fox Sports Regional networks away(this may sound familiar to some of you). Of course we’re pissed about that, but you still have all those other channels you like. Mess around and drop Rice &/or UAB, & it’s like the satellite company also

  41. Biased, yeah, but also just NO research done. Take this for example: "The Mean Green lose more than half their home games, though their overall season records have improved since 2015, when they went a dismal 1 and 11." It takes a quick Wikipedia search to find out the Mean Green's record at Apogee is 34-15, and I think that's even a few wins outdated...

  45. Forgot to post in here a few weeks ago when I coached against him but the kid is a stud. Played well defensively and housed one on us when they threw him in at Wildcat QB. Went out of his way to be a good sport to our coaches and admin after a tough loss for him too. Scuttlebutt is that Tech is snorting around though.....

  46. Not surprised. Many have commented that Mason doesn’t look the same this year. Maybe it’s the OC, maybe it’s the patchwork Oline, maybe it’s the loss of Rico, or maybe it’s injury. Regardless, this Mason just isn’t quite as good as early last year’s Mason.
