  1. Fresh off their NIT championship, North Texas is at a crossroads: new conference, new head coach, but plenty of continuity to keep the momentum going. Immediately following former head coach Grant McCasland departing for Texas Tech, the promotion of Ross Hodge, McCasland’s longtime associate head coach at Arkansas State and North Texas, should bring solace for the Mean Green faithful. Most importantly, much of North Texas’ defensive dominance has been thanks to Hodge: considered the architect of the Mean Green defense under McCasland, Hodge’s defense forces teams to grind out the shot clock, limit clean passing opportunities and eliminate easy shot attempts. This upcoming year, some of North Texas’ defensive stalwarts return: Rubin Jones, Matthew Stone and Aaron Scott are all tough, versatile defenders with high motors and an ability to play multiple positions. link: https://stretchingthefloor.blogspot.com/?m=1
  2. Duke has only brought in three players via the transfer portal that have stuck on the roster thus far, but they convinced an FCS All-American Offensive Lineman to flip his commitment from University of North Texas today. Jacob Long, who earned Second Team All-American honors after a monster season at Angelo State, originally opted to return back to Texas where he played high school ball but the Blue Devils' coaching staff remained in pursuit as they lost a few linemen to the portal themselves this Spring. Long, who is 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds, played guard for Angelo State and projects as an interior lineman for the Blue Devils. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining and will arrive at Duke this week. He was part of an offensive line that led the conference in offensive yards and points while finishing 24th overall in total offense in DII. read more: https://247sports.com/college/duke/article/duke-lands-commitment-from-fcs-all-american-ol-jacob-long-210926149/
  3. 2022 Record: 7-6 overall, 4-4 in Conference USA Head Coach: Trent Dilfer, 1st year: 0-0 - UAB 2023 Football Schedule @ColFootballNews | @PeteFiutak If anything, UAB football has been a massively underappreciated sports story. Here’s a school with a football team that didn’t make a peep of noise in a divided state that worships either the University of Alabama or Auburn, and it not only broke though, it thrived. UAB first took up football in 1991 and spent five years as a lower level independent, moved into the FBS world in 1995, came up with just two winning seasons from 1996 to 2014, and then got put into a coma for two years. This program didn’t exist. Maybe it would come back, maybe it wouldn’t. No big whoop. But it did, and not only did it survive, it roared with head coach Bill Clark hitting the ground running with six straight winning seasons, two conference championships, regular bowl games, an 11-win 2018 season, and success, success, success in an unbelievable situation. Easily, Clark belonged on any list of coaches who did the most with the least. With all the wins came the interest, a nice new stadium, and from a near death experience the program moved up in weight class to the American Athletic Conference going into this season. It was more than just validation for a job well done, it was good deal for the AAC, too. And then UAB hired Trent Dilfer as its new head coach. read more: https://collegefootballnews.com/cfn/uab-blazers-college-football-preview-2023-breakdown-prediction-top-players-win-total
  4. McKinney 2024 ILB Jonathan Agumadu (6'1, 215) and 2025 OLB Riley Pettijohn (6'2, 210) are impressive physical specimens blowing up in recruiting. Agumadu has seen recent offers come in from North Texas, SMU, Texas State, Memphis, Missouri and more. Pettijohn's most recent offer is from LSU, and the Tigers will be a force in his decision-making process.

  6. LOUISVILLE, Ky. – UNT softball junior Kailey Gamble was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-South Region Third Team at first base, the organization announced on Thursday. Gamble led Conference USA with 16 home runs and finished tied for 23rd in the nation. She started all 57 games for the Mean Green and paced the team in 12 statistical categories including batting average, RBI and walks. Gamble became the seventh player in program history to earn the distinction and first since Hope Trautwein and Tuesday DerMargosian garnered first and second team selections, respectively, in 2021. Gamble was one of two C-USA student-athletes to be named to All-South Region teams and was among nine players in the league to be listed by NFCA. North Texas closed its final season as a member of C-USA with 35 wins and a second-place finish at the conference tournament on Saturday. UNT moves to the American Athletic Conference on July 1, 2023.
  7. Dr. Roger H. Grant (aka Coach), 77, passed away on April 10, 2023, at home in Laguna Park, Texas. While we are deeply saddened at his passing, we find great comfort that he is no longer in pain. Roger was born on September 3, 1945, in Plainview, TX to Betty and Dee Grant. Roger was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Annette. Roger's love of basketball began early in life and he played point guard for his high school team the Plainview Bulldogs. His senior year, his team won the title of District Co-Champions and advanced to the Bi-District game. Roger's basketball career continued through college playing point guard for the Wayland Baptist Pioneers. Roger received his B.S. in Business Administration & Education and Physical Education from Wayland Baptist College. It was here that he met the love of his life, Marilyn (nee Maxwell), and the two were married August 28, 1967. Roger received his M.S. in Physical Education and Business from North Texas State University and his Ed.D. in Physical Education and Health from East Texas State University. Roger began his coaching career as the Men's Tennis Coach at East Texas State University, but found his true passion to be coaching Men's Basketball at Sul Ross State University starting in 1987. Coach Grant loved to help players achieve their maximum potential both on and off the court. What started as mentoring his athletes to achieve in the classroom, quickly turned to mentoring and encouraging those same athletes to pursue and obtain higher level degrees. Many of those athletes became coaches themselves and circled back to the values and work ethic that Coach Grant instilled in them on the court. Nothing brought Coach greater joy than hearing their success stories and knowing that his coaching legacy continues to this day. Coach loved to golf, play guitar, and to watch The Cowboys every Sunday even if he was "only watching to see them lose." He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years Marilyn, son Darren Grant and wife Cyndal of Tyler, Texas, daughter Kari Grant and husband Lee Robinson of Austin, Texas, and grandchildren Damian, Elise, Gracie, Brailey, and Slaiden. A Celebration of Life is being planned in San Angelo, TX, in June with the option to attend in person or via livestream. To be included in updates on Coach's Celebration of Life or to share pictures, stories, or memories, please email RememberingRHGrant@gmail.com In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to one of the following charities: Positive Coaching Alliance https://positivecoach.org/the-power-of-positive/ USA Basketball Foundation https://usabfoundation.org/ Guitar Center Music Foundation https://guitarcenterfoundation.org/ To plant trees in memory, please visit the Sympathy Store.
  8. North Texas qualified for the Conference USA title game a season ago, but the real danger for California is that its season opener against UNT occurs on the road. The Golden Bears have a ton of transfers, and with this being their first game with several new faces, a less-than-ideal situation could present itself. Breakdown: California has one of the Pac-12's toughest tests when facing Auburn, which has been rejuvenated following the hiring of Hugh Freeze. The Golden Bears' clash with the Tigers comes during Week 2 and falls between dates with North Texas and Idaho, which could lead to some assuming the Golden Bears would have one of the most manageable schedules in the conference. But California faces Washington, Utah and Oregon with each of those games coming on the road in venues often described as among the loudest in the Pac-12.

  9. Davis wasn't the only prospect at Prosper High School to land an offer. Stein also extended a scholarship offer to 2025 offensive lineman Connor Carty. Carty is a 6-foot-4, 285-pound player who projects out to play as an interior offensive lineman. The Ducks are the second school to offer Carty a scholarship. They join North Texas as the other program to do so. LINK: https://247sports.com/college/oregon/article/oregon-ducks-football-recruiting-209952770/
