  1. I will be in attendance. I also have two additional tickets as my other two partners-in-crime are not able to make it. If anyone is interested in those tickets please reach out to me. It is in the B-204 region row 1 seat 2 and 3. Sadly, I will be in seat 1 so you will have to sit next to me (in theory). My goal is to make it to EVERY home game this year and support my alma mater and damn it I am sticking to it. Even as this year's team drives me crazy and up a wall... I want to hopefully witness a second half fight and see what this team is made of with a strong finish. If not, then at le
  2. Mean Green: 55 ACU: 10 31 - 0 halftime. I think our defense will create some turnovers early on and shut them out for a half. We will have some explosive plays on offense and will take advantage of the early turnovers. I do want to see more execution in the red zone on offense and close out our drives. I want to see the physicality of our defense especially with our linebackers and see our corners lock it down. I even want to see our kicker get a couple kicks in just to give me a peace of mind. Looking forward to watching all of this at Apogee on Saturday.
  3. I was at the game last night and will make the drive next weekend to Denton (from Austin). I was happy sitting in the patch of green in a sea of orange and proud of the fan support sticking with the Mean Green throughout the second half. The energy was great at first as the defense was getting after it but the offense provided no help or relief for the defense throughout the game. Our fan's reaction to our offense's lack of production was a familar sight. I'm looking to see how the Mean Green responds at home and what adjustments they attempt to make on the offensive side of the ball. Looking
  4. I am very aware of Dajon's capabilities and McNulty's below subpar performance against Idaho. Dajon has a lot of upside and I have NO doubt that he will be a gamer once the coaching staff feels like he is ready to perform and manage a game in a hostile environment such as this. He is gonna have to sooner or later. In a sense, they're all inexperienced when put into a game of this magnitude. The reason why we, the fans, are having quarterback disagreements is because each quarterback brings something valuable to the table. All that we have to go on is what we have seen, the statistics that each
  5. Fair enough. Either way it'll be a win-win. Whoever is on the field by the Texas game will give UNT the best chance to win.
  6. The post-spring's depth chart is public that was handed to Brett Vito who included it in his article not too long ago. Here is the link: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/files/2014/04/SpringDepthChart1.pdf I consider McNulty the starter since he is above Greer even though there is an "or". Greer didn't outplay McNulty in the spring game but had a good performance. McNulty does have an edge with his experience at the D1 level, knowledge of the offense, and has had more reps in practice. As I stated earlier, it is McNulty's job to lose in August when practices resume and competition
  7. I agree that we do have to make plays and take risks down the field in order to have a chance to beat Texas. Dajon played well against Idaho (1-11 overall last year) during clean up time after Thompson gave Idaho a clinic. ONE game against Idaho didn't tell me a whole lot except that he does have potential. The game and UT's defense will be 3-4x faster than the snaps and throws he made against Idaho. I'm not taking anything away from him and I think he'll be really effective down the road but those same play making abilities can also add up to quick turnovers by trying to do too much and take
  8. When it comes to UT's situation, if Ash is not game ready by then, our biggest concern is stopping the run, forcing their QB to throw the ball, but keeping him contained and not having him make plays with his feet. Easier said than done I understand that. Our defense needs to attack early and not let their QB develop any kind of rhythm. Capitalize on specials will also work in our favor. I think this is our best case scenario to have a chance to compete with Texas in this game. We just need Texas to shoot themselves in the foot a couple of times and not shoot ourselves.
  9. McNulty is not an inexperienced freshman quarterback or a JC transfer. A lot of growth and maturation has come between his freshman year and now. He knows and understands the offense. He can also use his legs if needed. Here is a link to his biography: http://www.meangreensports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/andrew_mcnulty_847328.html He's undersized but out of the group of quarterbacks that we have right now, I believe his body of work gives us the best chance to win at this moment. I am not against putting him on a short leash if he can't facilitate a spark in the offense. Give him a ch
  10. Its not bad but the shirt could be better. The message needs to be more direct. I personally like the message to aim for the jugular which is what I would want to wear for a UTSA game. I'd still buy it for support. Rivalries have to start somewhere and we are overdue for one. I would love UNT to own SMU across the board in competition.
  11. I like the fact that he plays hard until the whistle blows and that he has a little edge to his playing style. The fact that he played different positions on the o-line will make him more versatile if adjustments need to be made due to another o-line injury. That would be interesting to test him on the d-line and how he responds to those positions but I am pleased with him as part of the o-line.
  12. There shouldn't be any ill will with either party. It was a promotion for him to take the next step operating a division one football team as a head coach. Todd Dodge KNEW that D1 wasn't going to be a 5A challenge. It just goes to show the HUGE experience disparity transitioning from high school football to college football as a head coach. If you put Todd Dodge's body of work next to Coach Mac's resume then I think it would hit home on Dodge's place in college football as a head coach to begin with. I think UNT fans were split about the hire from the get-go but it did create a lot of buzz. I
  13. UT's offense are going to have to find a sure identity that can only be figured out by the "real speed of the game". UT has play makers in Brown (RB), Ash (QB), Shipley (WR), and Johnson (WR). Their question mark is their offensive line. Their still huge and athletic. Ash is not Manning. Though he has experience, missing reps in practice and spring game to a new offense can translate to errors in "real speed". He's also concussion prone with a questionable offensive line. He might be hesitant to run and will either take the sack or force a throw. Blitz packages will keep him uncomfortable and
  14. Great article. I love hearing Coach Mac talk. He is one of the most positive individuals inside and outside of football but at the same time a realist. I am looking forward to seeing this team continue to build confidence, depth, and consistency along with the addition of increased fan support. Increased traffic and tail gaiters in Denton for UNT football? Yes please. GMG!
