  1. So I got a little bored this weekend and had nothing better to do, so I made a fan video for the upcoming season. Anyways, just thought I'd share. I'm in no way a professional. Football season needs to get here already! Fixing the bass issue now. Should have another version soon.

  2. Most people on here know that I like doing research and plugging the numbers into spreadsheets to come up with some interesting statistics. I decided to turn my attention towards UTSA football. Below is a list I compiled of wins that UTSA has logged against FBS programs with a winning record: Tulane Here's a graph I made:

  3. It was as a beautiful win on Saturday. It may not have looked pleasing to the eye, but I could care less. All that mattered on Saturday was to win, it didn’t matter how or what the final score was. UNT needed that win. The slow starts continue to plague this team. It’s already cost UNT two games. I can’t say how proud I am to see how resilient and tough this team is, but they need to do something to spark them early It’s not that I’m upset at the screen call; I’m upset at the execution. What was Derek thinking on that play? Reminded me of Brandon Weeden, your better than that Derek. Co

I'll be doing a comic event that day in Tucson so I'll probably miss it, but here's the link for the rest of you to enjoy it if you're currently an out-of-towner like me: http://www.collegesportslive.com/?media=494780

  7. Andrew Smith is one of my favorite players and I thought he was going to be a great one, but he died young and was never able to play as a seasoned upperclassman. His numbers do not stack up to DT or Scott Hall in any of the stats I listed. We'll never know how good he could have been, and it's unfair to compare his stats at the start of his career to what DT/Hall did at the end of theirs, but that's all we have. Since it's the ten year anniversary of his passing, we should do something for the scholarship fund.

  8. This is a pretty cool video made by UNT Students highlighting the campus and their obsession for UNT. Great slam on the ponies, frogs, longhorns, etc. Enjoy!

  9. So obviously these are a little fancy so what I'm planning on doing is making an equal number of both and posting them all throughout the buildings on campus and surrounding places that'll let me. Then I'm going to make some lower quality flyers with just text mainly with debunked myths that I'm going to hand out on campus and see if I can get RHA to pass out at the residence halls. I'm also gonna make one with Uncle Sam that says "UNT NEEDS YOU TO BE AT APOGEE" and put that on all the bulletin boards. Also, I'm about to make a Twitter @hit30k in which I post updates on what we're doing, d

  11. 3) We TOOK five turnovers from them. Make no mistake, we weren't given anything. We took the ball five times. I'm not sure the guy that Laramie Lee hit on that fourth turnover knows he's made it back to Indiana yet. 4) We won by seven after giving Ball State seven points! We made a crucial mistake on that Jimmerson fumble that led to a gimme touchdown (by the way, I don't remember seeing him after that play). A team the caliber of Ball State was gifted points and we still won by a touchdown. And we also gave up our patented throw it over Hilbert's head and watch him not turn around to

  14. What makes me want to quit donating? Is threads like this. Who gives a flying f-ck. This program needs money and more fans. Neither of which hinge on whether fans can attend practice. I read threads like this and think to myself maybe it is time to quit throwing good money after bad. We will always be small time. Unfortunately for me I have some sort of addiction to the hope of better days for the Mean Green. So I keep sending out the checks. On a side note. My wife and her entire family attended Ohio State. My father in law and I give about the same amount of money to our respec

  16. I will be working with recruiting and social media specific to the football program. There are some minor inaccuracies from the article that was linked in your blog, so the attachment should clear things up. Always interested in having a dialogue about the Mean Green, so we'll be reading you here, on Twitter, and Facebook. Let's get excited about UNT football and fill "the nest" against the Vandals!

  27. So, the green team pulled away a bit in the second half to edge the white team in this the 4th year of the GMG.Com BB Classic! And what a fun day it was...we had two great honorary coaches in Vertrail Vaughn's for the green team and Hannah Christian for the white. Stepping in to do a "most interesting job" as our third referee was Brandan Walton. Also joint us as referees were Ex-UNT footballer Troy Kokjohn and ex-Cheer Squad member Matt Sherman. Thanks go also to our athletic department student managers and all the help they gave with the scoreboard, set-up, equipment, clock, etc. Our two coa

  29. We all have had hopes for better and bigger things at UNT....some of us for over 30 yrs. We were helped along when they build the athletic center..we just needed a stadium....then...ground breaking and we ended up with Apogee...just a great stadium. We have seen a great hire in Dan Mac and the other coaches, tailgating has been great...marketing seems to have improved...now we are in CUSA...attendance has improved and the students are really pulling their weight. After the HOD bowl, the crowd and the events...what a fun time, and perhaps a gaze into the future of what could be. My vision j

  35. All the talk this past week has been about what the defense accomplished last Thursday night, but what about the offense? Well the offense didnt put up great numbers, but still accomplished enough to help out with the win. We decided to go back and look at every offensive play that we thought was successful and break it down for yall. Here is the definition of a successful play in our book. Any play resulting in a touchdown Any play resulting in a first down Any pass play 5 yards or greater Any run play 4 yards or greater Get the results and read more here : Successful Plays

  36. We have been taking the trip to the “body bag” game for 13 years now and in my opinion this was by far the best the team has played in that time. During the game we heard many UGA fans making comments about the game. In the first half we were hearing “this is embarrassing”, “we are not playing well” and “Why can’t we move the ball?” By halftime the comments changed to “North Texas is better than we expected” "we can loose this game" and “we were caught off guard by a good team.” After the game as we were walking around the campus and city we had UGA fans stopping us telling us “You

  38. This isn’t a must win for UNT, but it certainly could be a defining and a statement win. North Texas hasn’t had many chances in recent years of having a win that could help make a season. I think a win at Ohio would be a huge shot of momentum in the arm of this team. Which QB plays the best? How could you not love how Derek Thompson played if you’re an UNT fan? On the other side it couldn’t be much worse for Ohio starter Tyler Tettleton. I have a feeling that Tettleton is going to rebound this week. He is too good not to rebound. I’m more intrigued on how well Thompson will play. He lit up

  39. September 12, 2009 was a dreary day in North Texas, but it was game day. The week before North Texas had opened the year with a surprising 20-10 road victory over Ball State to sit at 1-0 for the first time since 2005. It was pouring all day. A late morning Mean Green soccer game on a flooded field, one of the most bizarre games I've ever witnessed ended with a 1-0 PV A&M victory over a far superior NT side, but at least there was a football game that night, and for the first time in several years, true excitement through campus. The game started off well. NT led after the 1st qua

  40. http://espn.go.com/blog/statsinfo/post/_/id/71753/heisman-hopeful-qbs-stand-out-in-week-1 According to ESPN.com, Derek Thompson had the 5th highest QBR in the country last week (96.6), putting him above the likes of Jameis Winston, who dazzled the country Monday night. It is a new career high for DT (his previous being a 93.8) after going 23-27 for 349 yards in a rout of Idaho. Now I think we can all agree it is rather unlikely that DT will win the Heisman, but this game was definitely a confidence booster both for DT and us fans. I don't know about you, but when DT got hurt, I was wor
