    Rank the UNT 2018 Schedule

    smu ………....I refuse to put a number 1 in front of their name. 2. There is no number 2. There will be a new number 1. It's the next game after the smu game. FOCUS!!!

    Texas at El Paso lands big time fullback

    They were funded in 1914 as The State School of Mines and Metallurgy. They still have a practice mineshaft on their campus. It keeps them grounded by giving them a place to practice being shafted.

    '19 QB Maverick McIvor (San Angelo)

    This thread jumped the tracks with any comparisons of pasted QB recruiting to what we've seen from Seth Lettrell and company. Mason Fine......Period!!! He would have never been recruited by past regimes. If fans can't get excited about new QB recruits like Kason Martin and Jason Bean, then they haven't been paying attention. UNT's future is now! Leave the sad past alone.
  4. Harold Taft said the only way to break a drought is with a flood. I hope that's the way UNT does it. Even a little water in the ditch would be OK.

    2 C-USA QBs drafted in 2018

    The Cowboys signed 2 CUSA QBs. Mike White from Western Kentucky had the 4th most passing yards in the FBS last year and the 5th most in 2016. He could make the team. Dalton Sturm from UTSA signed as a free agent. The biggest thing about him is he rushed for 545 yards last year and 1,227 yards for his career.

    Marcus Davenport goes 14th in !st Round

    If 5 years ago someone had asked this question: "Which Texas university will have the only player taken from a Texas school in the first round of the 2018 draft." Who would've guessed UTSA. Go figure. The Boise player taken by the Cowboys in the first round was a walk on at Boise. It just goes to show that some really good players are overlooked by big schools.

    Favorite Mean Green Game

    1. The Army game this year. I made a comment before the game that if they let UNT get the ball with a little time and the game on the line, that Fine would stick it to them. 2. The 2003 Baylor game. The Baylor fans were stunned. My son and I listened to a group of Baylor fans as they left the stadium. It was pretty funny. 3. Lance Dunbar in his last game in 2011, when he set a number of records against Middle Tennessee. He had 313 yards rushing and also set the career rush record on a cold and rainy night.
  8. For this year, the CBI is perfect as it's allowing the team keep on playing though March. The experience of winning and all that entails should bode well for the future.

    SBC Bowl Season

    SBC or not, Troy is the real deal. 11-2 this year with a win at LSU. Last year they were 10-3 with a 30-24 loss to National Champion Clemson. They should have been ranked.

    John Stephen Jones

    Too short. 5' 10'' If he was just half an inch taller like our QB then you could make him an offer.
  11. I sadly missed the UTSA game. A 98 yard drive with no timeouts and seconds left....WOW. However, I was at the Army game, and that was a heck of a game. Littrell's quick decision to run one more play after Army attempted to freeze the kicker was pretty sharp. That might have been the most important play of the game. We will never know if the field goal would have been good from the longer distance. Great win!

    SL Hypothetical

    OK. At 9 or more wins each year and no championships, it would keep him here until he retires.
  13. Drought breakers? I think there's a chance for one or more seniors to get into this years NFL draft. Jeff Wilson (1215 yards in 11 games 6.5 yards per carry) might be the one to do it. Probably 2 or 3 others have outside chances. What say you?

    “Winnable Game”

    Agree 100%. Troy is near the bottom of teams to be pitted against because beating them will not get much recognition since they are from the Sunbelt. They are bad news at 10-2 with a win at LSU. I would much rather play a struggling P5 team.

    DRC: Five thoughts on UNT's loss to FAU

    5 Thoughts on the game 1. FAU is a top 25 team. 2. Line help is needed on both sides of the ball. 3. Mason Fine might get to 4000 yards on the season. (3,749 yards and counting) 4. It's too bad both FAU games were played in Florida. UNT plays better at home, and Apogee would have been packed and loud. 5. The FAU fumble at the goal line with1:09 left was totally funny.
