  1. Great point, @SilverEagle! In an attempt to make things a little less confusing, I intentionally avoided the use of historic identifiers and only listed opponents under their current name. So, you won't see names like East Texas State or Texas Western on the list. Instead, you'll see Texas A&M-Commerce and Texas-El Paso. Thanks for bringing that up!
  2. Thank you, @Harry and @ForneyGreen. I really appreciate your compliments. Here's a link to the complete all-time results list. Just in case anyone is interested in seeing what that looks like. You'll start to notice some really interesting teams near the bottom of the list. UNT Complete All-Time Results
  3. I've shared these tables in various posts throughout the past, but I thought I might as well start a new thread to provide the updated results here. I first began working on these lists after noticing that the all-time opponents results list provided in the annual Facts and Records Book does not always accurately coincide with the season-by-season results from the same publication. After painstakingly compiling results for every single game in program history, I soon realized that many of the opponents for whom I had compiled results were hardly even relevant in the modern age of football. So, I decided instead to list game results for all opponents from three significant time periods in UNT football history, and then put them in order by total number of games played against each opponent. Please click on the links below to review the results. UNT All-Time Results UNT Results 1957-Present UNT Results 1995-Present
  4. I got my copy from the B&N store at the Golden Triangle Mall. They still had four or five other copies left. All signed. They're going for $24.99, if I'm not mistaken.
  5. I haven't seen anything posted about this yet, so I thought I'd make mention of a really cool book that I discovered last night. The Barnes & Noble in Denton is selling autographed copies of The Game Changers by Jeff Miller. The book is described to relate the story of Abner Haynes, Leon King, and the true origins of racially integrated collegiate football in the state of Texas. I can't make an honest recommendation, since I haven't started reading it in earnest, but I was definitely excited to see a book like this on the shelves of a large national retailer. Check out the link below to review a summary from the publisher's website, or stop by and pick up a copy for yourself! GMG! http://www.sportspubbooks.com/search?q=9781613219379&f=1
  6. I think that's right, @GrayEagle. 1972 was the first season that freshmen were eligible to play varsity football. After the Marshall plane crash that killed 37 players and coaches, the NCAA granted the school special permission to play freshmen in 1971. The rest of the country was permitted to do the same the following year. By then, freshmen athletes in every other sport except basketball had already been playing varsity for four years.
  7. Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I was really hoping to get him an authentic game-worn helmet, but if that doesn't work, then I'll definitely consider these other options. Thanks again!
  8. Thanks for clarifying @MGNation92. Yes, I am looking for the helmet that is pictured above. Sorry @greenjoe, I should have been more descriptive.
  9. This may seem like a crazy question, but does anyone have one of the authentic white "Flying Worm" centennial throwback helmets that they'd be willing to part with? I'm seeking a unique gift for my father-in-law, who is finally retiring after forty years in public education. He is a fellow alumnus and former Mean Green football player who lettered for Coach Fry's squads in 1974 and 1975. I've already been informed by the athletic department that those particular helmets are long gone, so I thought I might as well ask around. If any of you has, or knows of, one that might be available for sale, will you please let me know? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
  10. Oops. Nice catch! That was definitely a GWG game. And what a game it was! I tried to double-check for mistakes before posting, but I guess I must have missed that one.
  11. That's a very good point. Here's a game by game breakdown of every uniform combination since 2011. Just in case anyone is interested in seeing exactly how the data came together.

  12. Hey guys! Just for the heck of it, I've compiled a list showing the results of North Texas football games, over the last five years, based on the different uniform combinations worn throughout that time period. I feel that these seasons best reflect an overall trend towards uniform variation throughout college football, and they also coincide with beginning of the Mean Green's relationship with Nike. The evidence presented here, although purely anecdotal, suggests that a return to the "blackout" look may be in order. ;) Results by Uniform Combination HELMET JERSEY PANTS W-L Win % PF-PA PD Avg PD White White White 0-2 .000 27-80 -53 -26.5 White White Green 0-1 .000 7-41 -34 -34 White Green White 1-1 .500 47-72 -25 -12.5 Green Green Green 3-2 .600 147-90 57 11.4 Green Green White 9-6 .600 449-332 117 7.8 Green White Green 2-7 .222 143-344 -201 -22.3 Green White White 4-12 .250 367-527 -160 -10 Green Black Black 2-0 1.000 69-23 46 23 Black Black Black 3-1 .750 105-80 25 6.25 Black Green Green 0-3 .000 69-113 -44 -14.6 Black White Black 0-2 .000 41-84 -43 -21.5 Results by Uniform Component HELMET: White 1-4 .200 81-193 -112 -22.4 Green 20-27 .426 1175-1316 -141 -3 Black 3-6 .333 215-277 -62 -6.8 JERSEY: White 6-24 .200 585-1076 -491 -16.3 Green 13-12 .520 712-607 105 4.2 Black 5-1 .833 174-103 71 11.83 PANTS: White 14-21 .400 890-1011 -121 -3.4 Green 5-13 .277 366-588 -222 -12.33 Black 5.-3 .625 215-187 28 3.5

  15. You're welcome @Aldo! Just FYI, they only had two jerseys left (both large) after I bought mine. Don't know if that saves anyone a trip.
  16. If you haven't already heard, Sports Authority has filed for bankruptcy, and will be closing all of its Texas locations soon. I stopped by the Denton location today and noticed that almost everything in the store had been put on clearance for at least 10-20% off the lowest marked price. As of this afternoon, they still had 2-3 racks full of North Texas gear. There was an assortment of men's, women's, and children's apparel on sale. I was able to snag one of the older style Nike authentic replica jerseys for around $30. It looks great next to my authentic Schutt helmet from the same era! If you're thinking about checking it out, I'd suggest that you act fast. They've already begun boxing up some of the other sections in the store.
  17. I shared these tables in a previous post, but thought they might provide some additional context here as well. We've played Texas State the most all-time, twenty-third most since 1957, and not at all since 1995. We've actually faced Arkansas State and Middle Tennessee more than any other teams in recent history. UNT All-Time Results UNT Results 1957-Present UNT Results 1995-Present
  18. I absolutely would. He may not have the seemingly requisite pre-existing relationship with Coach Littrell, but he's both young and experienced, and he's already been recruiting in East Texas for the past few years. Plus, he seems to have the whole "fiery personality" thing down pat.
  19. Bad news Rocky's fans. That building currently serves as the existing site of the newly relocated Luigi's Italian Restaurant. The palm trees do, however, remain intact.
  20. Thanks for commenting, guys! I bought the jersey and pants set on eBay. The hang tags said ProEdge by Knights Apparel. Both looked to be based on an older uniform design, but they were the only ones I could find in a toddler's size. Believe it or not, the helmet was a custom job. I bought an old Michigan State Spartans helmet, on eBay, that had been separated from a Franklin Sports Uniform Set, and then repainted and reapplied new decals to the outside. It wasn't an easy task, but it was worth it!
