  1. Off to Iceland to play soccer with Sportacus! Congrats Brooke, and Thank You for your time at North Texas.
  2. What? A little background here. Ousmane was a very well known player coming out of high school and committed early to Rhode Island. Rhode Island had to reevaluate it's signing class when Makhi and Makhel Mitchell, the twin four star freshman center/power forwards who left Maryland’s basketball team in December, committed to Rhode Island as a package deal. Ousmane then committed to Grant McCasland and North Texas. Many schools were also still pursuing Ousmane, mostly Rick Pitino at Iona right outside New York City. Can you imagine the pressure, sitting in his living room with his parents and Rick Pitino and declining because he has committed to play basketball a thousand miles away in Denton, Texas. Rhode Island couldn't keep a commitment but he could. Thankfully Ousmane honored that commitment to North Texas, signed, enrolled, has worked out like a son-of-a-gun, and has rapidly developed his game. Recently the defeated UMass coach has said there was "very little they could do against him" as he was so dominant inside. Many schools wanted him and we are very fortunate to have him. . .
  3. I already did that in the first post.
  4. There should be an opening since the President of hsc has been promoted to Chancellor of the North Texas System. None of this looks good.
  5. Wow, the UNT Health Science Center (HSC?)sure has distanced itself from affiliation with the University of North Texas. The signage formerly had UNT in the name and was posted in GREEN, not black. In an AMAZING coincidence, Carolyn Cross, a TCU alum and the Director for the HSC, who's worked with changing the name and color identity, is the same person that was in charge of UNT Branding when black was mysteriously added as an "official" school color on the UNT Branding site. Green and White were voted as our school colors 119 years ago. No other color has ever been voted in. Our university identifies with GREEN probably more than any other school in the nation relies on a color for identity: Go Mean Green! Yet, it called a tin-foil-hat-conspiracy mentioning when somebody that has no ties to the school other than employment, is permitted to monkey with our heritage, because she liked some fashion color better, possibly because it made her look slimmer, or maybe that she has malicious intent. Now, she's worked with rebranding our medical school to TCU Medical School and something generically called hsc, Wow, if that logo doesn't get your Mean Green Pride flowing then I don't know what will. Yes, it sure appears that we've been bamboozled. https://mdschool.tcu.edu/
  6. Team Statistics Team Statistics Game Stats UNT Marsh FG% .481 .453 3FG% .389 .235 FT% .571 .722 RB 41 26 TO 16 7 STL 5 9 A few stats clearly show where we were clearly dominant and also areas where there may be room for improvement. Overall it's a good victory over a very scrappy team desperately fighting for it's relevance in league play.
  7. It's the sideline cameras, and how they can zoom in on the individual players and show the emotions on their faces like at an NBA game. I would have thought that by the 2020's North Texas would have had a quality school owned television production network like WKU has. Maybe in the 2030's? Do we not have media classes that teach this type of production?
  8. So true. He sells out the whole planet to line his pockets, Thank you for the correction.
  9. https://news.unt.edu/news-releases/5-million-gift-will-expand-career-readiness-unt-business-students Wow, that's an amazingly generous gift.
  10. Amazing, the person in this country that is best positioned for insider trading, is able to achieve a $30M gain off her questionably accumulated $50M portfolio. I am not saying that anything's illegal or unethical, because maybe she's just a really good guesser, like Hillary Clinton was. .
  11. Um, DeepGreen's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw DeepGreen pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious. ... Get well Phill, we love ya .
  12. It was nice seeing the North Texas coaching staff and support personnel wearing Green and White. Thank you guys.
  13. https://meangreensports.com/news/2022/1/8/mens-basketball-mean-green-beat-middle-tennessee.aspx North Texas returned to wearing school colors on Saturday and subsequently returned to winning. DENTON — The North Texas men's basketball team beat Middle Tennessee Saturday afternoon from the Super Pit 70-63 behind a season-high 25 points by newcomer Tylor Perry.Perry scored 17 of his 25 in the second half as the Mean Green held off the pesky Blue Raiders. Score By Periods Team 1 2 F Middle Tenn. 33 30 63 North Texas 36 34 70 "Give credit to Middle Tennessee," said head coach Grant McCasland. "I thought their pressure on defense really had us out of wack especially early. But proud of our team for how they fought through it and found a way to win late."UNT (9-3, 2-1 C-USA) had a season-high 16 turnovers Saturday and eight of them came in the first nine minutes of the game. But a strong shooting night by the team as a whole kept them ahead of Middle Tennessee (9-6, 0-2 C-USA) for most of the game. The Mean Green were 10-of-17 (59 percent) from deep and 20-of-40 (50 percent) overall. "I thought this was one of our best shooting nights," McCasland said. "Anytime you shoot that well from three you give yourself a chance and it started with Drez (McBride) knocking down the first one." Mardrez McBride chipped in 11 points and was 3-of-5 from 3-point range. He scored all 11 points in the first half. In the second half UNT kept the Blue Raiders honest by still attacking the paint and getting to the free throw line. The Mean Green made a season-high 20 free throws Saturday. But when Middle Tennessee was making one final push late in the game, it was Perry who extinguished any Blue Raider hope. With 49 seconds remaining, Perry hit the bottom of the basket on a 30-plus-foot 3-pointer with a hand in his face as the shot clock buzzer rang to give the Mean Green a 69-60 win."We tell him all the time to shoot," McCasland said with a smile. "He's got a special talent and is a unique point guard than we've had here in the past. He's built for those moments."North Texas is on the road next week as they travel to Marshall on Thursday for a 6 p.m. CT scheduled tip-off and then play at WKU on Saturday for a 3 p.m. CT scheduled start.
  14. I think we sometimes get treated unfairly by the referees simply because our bad luck gray and bad luck black uniforms are just so ugly, at least when compared to our beautiful iconic Green and White uniforms. .
  15. North Texas played well and fought hard, but the unlucky gray uniforms were just enough to tilt the game in favor of the Blazers. The final score would probably have been reversed if we were wearing our school colors.
  16. https://meangreensports.com/news/2022/1/6/mens-basketball-mean-green-fall-to-uab-69-63.aspx The jinx continues. North Texas confirms that they usually have bad luck when wearing black or gray. DENTON — The Mean Green men's basketball team's six-game winning streak came to an end Thursday night as North Texas fell 69-63 to UAB at the Super Pit.The Mean Green were outscored 15-1 on second chance points and made three less free throws than the league favorite Blazers."Give credit to UAB they did what they needed to do to win," said head coach Grant McCasland. "They attacked the paint and got second chance points. We knew we had to rebound well to win. I felt like we had a chance there at the end but we didn't make winning plays."With less than 2:15 left in the game, UNT (8-4, 1-1) trailed by just two points. A missed jumper by UAB (13-3, 3-0) was batted out by the Blazers' big man Trey Jemison to his guard Jordan Walker who stepped in a sank a second-chance bucket to increase the lead to two possessions. A missed three on the other end by North Texas turned into two more points for UAB essentially sealing the win."We didn't make the plays late," said senior guard Mardrez McBride. "We got away from attacking the paint and got comfortable with shooting 3-pointers. We know we're a good team and we know we have another important opportunity in front of us Saturday."North Texas took multiple leads in the second half after trailing by one point at halftime, the first time they've trailed at half in seven games. However, they could never increase their lead in the second half to more than one possession. McBride led the way for North Texas with a game-high 17 points. It ties his season-high. He was 4-of-7 from deep. North Texas will be back in action Saturday when they host Middle Tennessee (9-5, 0-1) at 5 p.m. CT from the Super Pit. ***Please feel free to downvote if you absolutely hate the off-color uniforms.*** .
  17. Fantastic news! It'll be great to see them in Green again next year representing our university.
  18. There's speculation that this former walk-on, Ralph Rucker, may inherit the starting quarterback duties at OU now that Caleb Williams has entered the Transfer Portal. He was awarded a scholarship and has obviously made an impression in Norman. It could be a great football rags to riches story for one of our preferred walk-on recruits.
  19. Congratulations to those student athletes for their excellent academic work.
  20. No, Helwig added blue and copper. Then we correctly returned to GREEN and WHITE. Those fricking logos took forever to go away The disgusting Blue and Copper were eventually discarded as they were "pulled out-of-tail-end" additions. Black was then added as an accent color, usually for outlining Green on a White background or White on a Green background. But a non-caring university employee, with computer access far beyond her scope of knowledge, was then able to place on the branding site that her favorite fashion color was somehow one of our official school colors. It isn't.
