  1. Many of you know that I was born and raised in Denton before attending North Texas. My in-laws now live in Robson Ranch and all of my family is still in Denton County. Well, after 15 years of policing at Dallas PD, and the last two as Chief of the city of Keene, I am returning to my roots. I will be sworn in as the Chief of Police in Argyle on January 2.

  3. Speaking as someone who currently has Covid, it is the real thing. It is relentless and EVERY step should be taken to keep it from spreading. If it means we cancel a football game, then we cancel. If you think it isn't real or isn't that bad, then I would guess you probably have not had it.... and I hope you don't.

  4. I’m sure this won’t be a popular post, but I just wanted to provide a little perspective. The world is in the middle of the worst health crisis in our lifetime. Many businesses have gone under and many people have lost their jobs. Our kids that chose in person learning must wear face masks all day long. Many members of our government are now being hospitalized due to the virus. We can’t do routine shopping without wearing face masks. Even then, we still risk exposure to a virus that could be life-threatening. We were completely without live sports for almost 5 months. Some conferences still h

  6. Because that's what you do in the middle of a pandemic... you sign up for 30 years of payments... Anyways, we started moving in yesterday, and for those of you who don't know, I live in Nashville. Well, today we opened up a closet and discovered this ONE chair left here by the previous owner... I'd like to think this is a sign that this was the perfect home purchase... because i'll be damned if this isn't a Flying Worm Mean Green chair right here.

  7. UNT was a lot of the UNTamed20’s 1st choice. I definitely know it was Christian’s 1st choice even though he was getting P5 looks at LB. He probably would of had several more offers if he wouldn’t of committed so early because of his Senior season stats. However, he knew as soon as he was on campus this was the school he wanted to be at and got on the recruiting trail as hard as the coaches. In his heart he knows he is a P5 talent and wanted to come to UNT along with all of the other commits to push this program to a new level. If we all could get on board with Coach Trice, former mean green p

  9. We all watched the same game, we all saw the good and the bad moments, of which there were plenty of each. I dug a little deeper into the statistics of this performance to try and get some reference. Aune’s passing stat line: 28/47 for 339 yards, 2 TDs/0 INTs For Mean Green QBs this was the second most passing yards ever in a starting debut, behind Vizza’s 383 against Louisiana Lafayette in 2007. Aune averaged 7.2 yards/attempt in this game. Last season Mason Fine averaged 7.2 yards/attempt against FBS competition for the season. Aune threw the ball 47 times, which

  10. Now that we are on the other side of a COVID forced “off week” I think it’s important to turn our attention to SMU discussions. I’ll start. I hope they lose every day in practice this week. I hope they get booed when they order fast food. I hope their underwear feel a bit too tight when they walk around. I hope their cardboard cutout fans act like their real fans...only a few thousand show up, they pay little attention to the game, they leave in the third quarter, and they talk about how “back in the good ol’ days” they were the best cardboard figures

  13. Seth Littrell is 27-25 over 4 seasons with zero conference championships, three bowl losses in which the defense gave up 47 PPG and one of the highest paid coaches in CUSA with best facilities and resources we have ever had. I'm not saying he's on the hot seat but he should be if we're not in the hunt for a conference championship. If we end up with 4 wins again we should be raising hell there is no excuse for mediocrity now.

  14. I'm willing to bet a substantial amount of money that everyone in Green wanted to play. Players, Coaches, AD, everyone. We can accuse the guys of not being very good, but I wouldn't question their heart to play... no matter who's on the other side. If you're insinuating we're using this to get out of the game because the team thought they were going to lose, that's pretty crappy.

  15. Big congrats to the Mean Green fans that have been waiting for this for awhile. Not a win over us. I’m talking about winning the regular season crown. That’s one hella accomplishment this year. The conference isn’t as good at the top as it was 3 years ago when Middle, ODU, Marshall, and Western were all top 100. But....there are basically no gimmes this year. You have to bring your game every single night. So very impressive job by your squad. I said on our board and CUSA board awhile back of all the teams I’d seen this year in conference you guys were best and La Tech was r

  18. While looking through the roster and the various position groups it really stood out to me how many of these guys had at least one P5 school offer them in high school. We can basically put together a starting lineup of guys who had P5 offers, and are 2-3 deep there in some positions. So I did. This obviously is nothing like what our starting lineup will look like and some of these guys will get or have already been outplayed by guys who didn’t have P5 offers, but it’s encouraging to see so many of these type of players competing for spots. That’s how you build a good roster. The guys who

  20. I’m tired of seeing our d-linemen getting doubled into our LBs laps, then seeing that 5th DB come in to make the tackle after 10+ yard gains. I know it’s a passing league, I know it’s easier to get good DB recruits than D-Line recruits as a G5 school, but the 3-3-5 hasn’t worked and it feels like our players are constantly in positions where they are on their heels and in 3rd and shorts, if they even get to 3rd down. Maybe even a 4-2-5 might make more sense if teams’ bases are 11 personnel. We have recruited well the last couple of years defensively, so I refuse to believe we don’t have p

  22. I know this isn't the time for the athletic department to be spending money, but the way this virus disproportionately effects our older population really got me to thinking about Abner Haynes. Wren did a great job of getting a quality sculptor to honor Joe Greene. I really hope once we get past COVID-19, Haynes will also get his due. I've had this sculpture finished for the last 4 years, and I see it every time I go into my studio to work. If Wren wants to go another direction, that fine. I just hope UNT gets to honor Haynes, like we did Joe Greene.

Teams are looking to make all non-conference games within driving distance. - Need MGSF donors now more than ever. - Coach McCasland walked through the day that the conference tournament and NCAA tournament were both cancelled. - Some capital projects will be delayed. - Some TV deals for the upcoming football season are starting to take shape, including with Stadium and CBS Sports Network. - Don’t expect the football season to be shortened, but could be delayed. - If foot

  27. Yes he was, he was intended to be a receiver because his arm had an ulnar nerve injury that never fully healed from high school. When Vizza left he filled in but his last year with us (2010), he was not even on the qb depth chart yet he was thrust into the starting role after Nathan Tune and Derek Thompson were injured and the only other semi-qb on roster was walk-on receiver Chase Baine. Say what you want about Todd Dodge but don’t give me that coach’s son bullsh, that kid poured his heart and soul into this team and his body just couldn’t take the punishment.

  28. Alright, everyone knows this is my schtick by now. I have all of the offer lists for all of our signees going back to 2011 (Mccarney’s first class), and I came up with a grading system for each recruit based strictly on who offered them. No other FBS offers besides us is a “C”, one other FBS offer is a “C+”, 2-4 is a “B”, 2-4 with one being a P5 offer is a “B+”, 5-9 is an “A”, and 10 or more is an “A+”. Also, more recently I started grading these classes by giving the recruits offer points, with G5 offers being worth 1 point and P5 offers being worth 1.5 points. I made some nerdy-ass char

  30. I have read post after post about how the SMU juggernaut is going to destroy us based on last night’s performance by our team against HBU. Would that be the same SMU that squeaked out a 10 point win against Texas State (that was honestly far closer until VERY late in the game)? Texas State was 3-9 last year, got routinely blown out, and beat the same HBU team we just played by 9. Last night’s game told me a grand total of nothing about the rest of the season for our team. Bean is fast (not Aune “quick” but legitimately FAST). Both quarterbacks missed some throws. The d

  33. Here's the situation: The DRC is printed by The Dallas Morning News. Up until the last few weeks, the DRC was among the last publications printed each day. The schedule has since been changed by the DMN. The DRC is now the first publication to go to press, ahead of USA Today, all editions of the DMN, The Wall Street Journal and everything else. That switch makes it impossible to get late sports in the printed version of the paper. We are still covering night events. The place to get that coverage has just changed.

Worth during the 50''s and 60's, and never went to school with a person of color until my freshman year at NTSU in 1961.And I certainly didn't come from money. I don't like rap, opera, heavy metal, and most country music. My 35 year career was in sales and distribution of Orthopaedic total joint implants, where I met only 2 surgeons of color. I belonged to a country club in Dallas for 19 years which didn't have a member of color. All the while I sat on the sidelines of integration . I have been fortunate enough la

  40. Back in the 90s and early 2000s when I went to a lot of away games I would meet those home fans and pick their brains about giving back to their university. The overwhelming sentiment of those under 30 (and maybe even 35) was hell no. Especially Sun Belt schools but even at places like LSU and OU most younger alumni laughed at giving money to the school they just shelled out a lot of money to. I would think with how much tuition is today, that sentiment is even stronger. Not everybody is rah rah about their school, they just want the piece of paper and to be done with it. I work with a m

I’ll give 10-1 odds that Orlando ends up making $700k or more somewhere. I have no idea what we’re gonna pay but let’s say it’s $400k which by far is the highest coordinator salary in cusa. Which of you would take 43% less money to do a job? So choices are up and comer who’s going to be inexperienced. Or a retread who is experienced but needs a

  43. Dan McCarney's time in Denton was a roller coaster, to be honest. Really good man and great experience, he appeared to be a solid hire. He came here with all of this exuberance for the job, with an air of excitement we hadn't heard in Denton about its potential than we had heard in decades. He would sell the program to anybody and was great with the media. And he took Dodge's players, who were hamstrung by all kinds of issues, and led us to the great 2013 season, culminating in a bowl shellacking of UNLV in the HoD Bowl in the Cotton Bowl in front of a huge UNT crowd. And then the wheels

We know what has to happen to get a raging loud-ass crowd in there....WINS and notoriety(DFW news coverage).. When we win enough to gain both we’ll have the CBI Championship vs San Fran crowd again. Till that happens there’s no reason to worry about it. Just worry about yourself and enjoy the ride. Rick

You can tell the first time you meet them that they are genuine. However, not the case with many other staffs. We have had coaches that we have run into that would make a used car salesmen at a lemon lot blush. Even had a coach tell our HS coach that they thought Christian was too good for their school, but since he didn’t have an offer yet, they were just gonna wait until he didn’t get an offer and they would swoop in.
