  1. Wow man, not sure that we need a new arena if the students keep showing like this. The Manica's have made a difference. Much better energy than the Talons.
  2. DENTON — The North Texas men’s basketball team, which features one of the nation’s best defenses, battled to a 52-42 win over UTEP Saturday afternoon at the Super Pit. Seniors Tylor Perry and Kai Huntsberry once again made clutch baskets late to lead UNT to its third straight victory. The Mean Green backcourt combined for 30 points on 10-of-20 shooting. They scored eight of North Texas’ final 10 points in the final four minutes of the game and didn’t miss a shot attempt. “Our ability to handle their pressure and not turn the ball over was the difference in the game,” said head coach Grant McCasland. “We knew going in (UTEP) was a team that scores a lot off turnover, and I thought that was the big flip.” UNT (18-5, 9-3) committed a season-low seven total turnovers Saturday, which the Miners (11-10, 4-6) scored only six points off. On the other side, the Mean Green forced 17 turnovers and scored 17 points off them. North Texas entered Saturday giving up only 55.3 points per game that, which ranked third-best in the nation. The 42 points they held UTEP to on Saturday is the fewest points an opponent has scored on them all year, though, the fourth time this season they’ve held a team under 50. UTEP was averaging nearly 70 points a game prior to Saturday. “We were able to manage the game (late),” McCasland said. “We felt that if we could make simple plays and pass it to the open guy and not do too much that it would be the difference.” Leading up to Saturday’s game, UNT was the only team in the 11-team league who had not had a bye yet. They finally get that day off as they don’t play again until Saturday. They’re at Rice next week. The game is scheduled to tipoff at 7 p.m. CT and will be broadcast on ESPN+ and the Mean Green Sports Network, presented by Learfield. UNT is the nation’s best road team by win percentage since the start of last year.
  3. Dude I like your posts usually, but I gotta call bullshit on this one. Ousmane is the reason we are so dangerous in G5. He is a P5 level post.
  4. This is a little bit of a rant so bear with me on my soapbox if you will. Not sure what he is up to or if he would be interested, but I think we should create a full time positon for Mean Joe similar to what UT does with Vince Young in Austin. Mean Joe should have a restaurant names after him in Denton and he should be at all or most of the games with his NFL Hall of Fame jacket on and his superbowl rings shining brightly. This guy is such a jewel for North Texas and we owe it to him to provide him this opportunity and it would be stupid for us not to utilize his fame and recognition in his twilight years. Boxer Jake LaMotta and singer Frank Sinatra had similar roles for entertainment establishments.
  5. Don’t see anything on the internets about this.
  6. Ouch! hopefully we start to win some of these in the future times under Coach Eric.
  7. Good news for baseball fans as they have a spot reserved for it in the plans.
  8. Great win! Sonproud if these guys for coming back after a terrible loss!
  9. Wow. That's deeply discouraging.
  10. DENTON, Texas – KeAyla Dove broke her own school record to win the women’s shot put title and highlight the day for North Texas Track & Field Friday at the Red Raider Open in Lubbock, Texas. Dove launched a career and school record shot put on her second throw, recording a mark of 56-1.25 (17.10m) that earned her a spot in the finals and eventually stood to win the event title. The sophomore from Houston, Texas, now stands in the top-7 nationally based on marks heading into this weekend. She was ranked No. 11 heading into the meet. In her collegiate debut in the 400 meters, freshman Kendahl Tucker took third in the "B" section with a time of 56.07. Jake Parchman cruised past his personal best in the men’s weight throw, earning a spot in the final and placing fifth with a mark of 60-10 (18.54m). Tyrell Johnson advanced to the finals in both the men's long jump and triple jump, placing seventh (22-11.75, 7.00m) and sixth (46-4.75, 14.14m), respectively. In the men's 200m "B" section, freshman Zavion Langrin placed fifth with a time of 21.79. Jaleisa Shaffer earned a spot in the women's weight throw final and finished ninth with a mark of 53-2.25 (16.21m), and Mason Garner finished fifth in the men's 3,000m with a time of 8:41.27. The initial USTFCCCA NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Regional TFRI rankings will be unveiled on Jan. 23, and the USTFCCCA national rankings will come out on Jan. 24. The Mean Green will be right back in Lubbock next weekend (Jan. 27-28) for the Texas Tech Open at the Sports Performance Center.

  11. Would you care to share a picture of what you are describing? I too have struggled to get it right and I have been going to games for awhile.
  12. It’s really depressing when you think about it.
  13. I’ve noticed that about Rubin as well. He has really struggled and I wonder if it isn’t that he is playing injured.
  14. I can’t believe we are losing to Rice at home!!! This is a very bad look.
