  2. https://www.californiagoldenblogs.com/2019/9/16/20866701/post-game-thoughts-north-texas This is the first time Cal has been held below four yards/play by a non power conference school, and there is little evidence to suggest that North Texas will have a defense that is above average nationally.
  3. https://www.californiagoldenblogs.com/2019/9/14/20866504/the-wrap-cal-fades-in-a-23-17-victory-over-north-texas I find it interesting that most UNT fans are coming away from this game feeling better after our play, and a lot of Cal fans fear the worst. All in all, a win is a win, but the Bears seem to have more questions than answers. For a team that is 3-0? That does not bode well going into the gauntlet section of the season.
  4. https://sportschatplace.com/picks/college-football/north-texas-vs-utsa-9-21-19-college-football-pick-odds-and-prediction We're favored by 18.5 right now - GMG
  5. In 2017, we had back-to-back loses to SMU in Dallas and Iowa on the road. That was also the year we won the Western Conference, played in the CUSA championship game and went to the New Orleans Bowl. I'll wait until the season is completely before writing the obituary. GMG
  6. https://www.underdogdynasty.com/2019/9/12/20862782/choosing-c-usa-week-3-cusa-conference-football-picks I said this on the Pawdcast, but I’ll say it again. I thought North Texas was a lock for this going into the season. I’m a little less confident after watching their first two games. I’m still picking North Texas though because I’m just a believer in Mason Fine at this point.
  7. https://www.californiagoldenblogs.com/2019/9/12/20862021/cal-football-2019-north-texas-defensive-preview North Texas gave up 31 against Abeline Christian then gave up 49 against SMU. Which version of the defense should we expect?
  8. https://247sports.com/college/north-texas/ContentGallery/North-Texas-Mean-Green-football-vs-California-Ten-things-to-watch-135508109/?utm_source=247Sports Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=190912_175306_North Texas Mean Green&utm_content=Link&liveconnect=9A-77-F1-20-1A-0B-D0-CF-8B-BB-1C-45-A7-52-62-91190912_175306NorthTexasMeanGreen North Texas goes on the road as 14-point underdogs in what is expected to be a fairly low scoring game. The real question here when picking the spread is do you think North Texas scored more than 14 points? If the answer is yes then they should cover, if the Mean Green score 14 or less than California likely covers or it’s a push. I’m 0-2 against the spread this year and 1-1 straight up, but I think the defense has its best game of the year so far, even though it’s not enough to win. MeanGreen247 prediction: California 27, North Texas 17
  9. https://sportschatplace.com/picks/college-football/california-vs-north-texas-9-14-19-college-football-pick-odds-and-prediction North Texas fell behind 21-0 in the first quarter of the SMU game and realistically didn’t have much of a shot beyond that. Cal probably isn’t going to come out with utter offensive dominance like that so this should be a more manageable matchup at least initially. I’m going to stick with the Golden Bears in the end but otherwise not going near it. Pick: California Golden Bears -13
  10. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2852937-college-football-picks-week-3-predictions-for-every-game#slide6 North Texas at California (4:15 p.m. ET, California -13.5) North Texas should be a good litmus test for California's potential on offense. Led by quarterback Mason Fine, the Mean Green will move the ball and get a few scores, even against this excellent Golden Bears defense. But any competent offense should be able to score against North Texas' D. Even Abilene Christian put up 31 points and 456 yards of total offense in the opener. If Cal is to be taken seriously as a Pac-12 contender following last week's upset of Washington, it has to score at least 40. Prediction: California 42, North Texas 24

  12. At least they are showing us some respect! GMG https://www.californiagoldenblogs.com/2019/9/11/20832743/california-golden-bears-north-texas-mean-green-littrell-fine-torrey-siggers-bussey-durden-lawrence "First, as a quick note, I’m terrified of saying something to jinx Cal."

  18. If they win, all is forgiven and right with the world again. SMU's victory won't mean much if we beat Cal on the road IMO.
