  1. Honestly who cares anymore? This realignment stuff has gotten so stupid.

  5. White stripe is strictly for film purposes. Coaches have a much better idea where the players eyes are when that giant white stripe is pointed towards where they SHOULD be looking or where they SHOULDN'T be looking. Takes the players ability to lie about where they were looking away. Eye in the sky don't lie.

  6. If you read Jim Williams's post, it's ALL speculative. Those are HIS ideas, not something currently in progress. FSU still has not found a way out of the grant of rights. Louisville is certainly questionable for the B1G - they wouldn't take OSU or WSU so I'm not sure why they'd take Louisville. This COULD happen in a few years, but certainly no reason to panic like it's going to happen for 2025!

  7. FAU's Dusty May on playing the Mean Green in Denton Wednesday night: "they're healthy now. They've played extremely well with a full roster. They beat Memphis at home. And then they bring in Rubin Jones and CJ Nolan back from injury and they sputtered the first game or two. I think sometimes you bring a guy back from injury and you just expect him to work back in seamlessly. In reality, roles change, rotations change, it's not quite that simple. And as we know it, every game is hard to win and is a challenge to win. So they played as well offensively as they have all season yesterday vs East Carolina at home, so they're clicking with a full roster and we're very well aware of how difficult it's going to be to win and in The Pit."

  8. Congrats to long time UNT supporter and fan Rick McKinney (BBA '90) on his retirement after 30-years of public service with the Fort Worth fire department. Thank you Rick for your many contributions UNT athletics and the community. Go Mean Green!

  13. I agree. Any growth at a non-power conference school with today's plethora of entertainment options and generation of students who don't care as much about sports is good.

  14. One could just as easily blame alumni or Denton area residents given there are hundreds of thousands. The reality is it's growth. We just need to to continue! We average 4100+ this year...shoot for 4500+ next year, etc..

  21. Try Tri Champions, you would have to put Temple in there as well…all three teams with five loses/13 wins. Just win the tournament, champion stands alone and only team to get an invite to the NCAA tournament!

  24. Channel 8 gave a "shoutout" to our WBB program's record-setting number of wins on last night's sports segment. Was nice to hear it publicized in the local media. Now let's beat Memphis and get part of the conference championship! GMG

  25. Thank y’all for the kind words. You know I’ve always felt like one of the most blessed people on earth for being able to share life with three different families. My family at home, my fire family at work and my Mean Green family. Emergency workers need their families to de stress and take their thoughts of the shift somewhere else, and this family, my Mean Green family has certainly done that for me. Whether we are fighting over our opinions on subjects of the moment, or loving each other in celebrating Mean Green successes…it’s all been a family to me and helped me focus on happier times. My last shift yesterday was an overwhelming day of emotion, reflection and joy seeing family and friends and coworkers one last time at the station. I greatly appreciate hearing from so many of you, and was especially proud seeing @SilverEagle repping the Mean Green at my station, as well as his Mean Green alumn son Jeff, or as he’s known now on the FWFD, Chief Covert. I hope to make more games now, hopefully more road games, though my wife’s Honey-Do list has now grown longer than a @PlummMeanGreen post on national “Stadium Day”. So I’ll see how it goes. So till the next tailgate,….It’s All Good And All Green. Rick

  32. On a serious note, it is crazy to me that Waco just finished expanding I-35 to eight lanes while it forever for Denton to get to six, and Fort Worth to Denton is still only four. Meanwhile I never have to exit there, but seeing all the development in Argyle and Robson Ranch area makes me mad for the people who have to suffer a two-lane FM 407 everyday.

  37. Saw D’Andre Payne “promoted” to CB coach so it looks like they are finally admitting they don’t give a damn about TEs and not replacing Gilbert. (Hope no one paid to learn about the next TE coach…)

  41. Congrats Rick! Great NT fan and friend. Now you can continue your movie career... "There was an even larger role waiting for one new graduate. Rick McKinney (’90) was looking for a job when he was approached by Jim Hobdy (’69), then UNT’s assistant athletic director of marketing, about a request from Paramount to be in the film. "I got a call from the assistant head costumer, Barry Kellogg,” McKinney recalls, “and later that month, I met head costumer Dan Moore, who took me to Dallas to get costume fit for the Armadillo mascot suit." Letter jacket given to the players and mascot during filming on campus. As a former member of Talons who had a passion for football and served as the Eagle mascot Eppy (later re-named Scrappy) during UNT basketball games, McKinney was hired as Rowdy the Armadillo. He also served as the equipment liaison between the film crew and the athletic department. "The filming was different than anything I had ever experienced, in life, playing ball, going to school, and growing up on a farm. The people you were side-by-side with were the sweetest folks ever, but the hours were extremely long," McKinney says." https://northtexan.unt.edu/issues/2022-spring/necessary-roughness-turns-30

  42. Been a rough season for sure. If we had a closer on this team I could see 5-6 more wins this year. I have faith in Hodge, he's given me that through 5 years as McCasland's #2, and as a winner in the JC ranks. Only 2 blowout losses this season. Some gritty wins. He is not Benford, thats for sure.

  43. Unless we are a perennial top 20-25 program, I don't know why it is acceptable to knowingly sign bench/role players. J. Morgan was not a good player in high school. Why would we expect more from him now? Stone was the 3rd best kid on his Oklahoma HS team. Why would he be a key guy on the G5 level? The kid from Kilgore JC (not sure he is on scholarship) just started playing the game. Our recruiting has been boom or bust for the past 5-6 years. Half of the recruits have excelled while the other half have been busts. Stop wasting valuable scholarships on kids of great character that may be great in practice. Treat each scholarships like it's the only one we have. There are too many good/great players that we pass up that could really help this program. (with no known issues) More so in football. Just my weekly rant
