  1. BOCA RATON, Fla. — Western Kentucky sixth-year senior quarterback Brandon Doughty said he's "Grandpa Brandon" around the program. Senior linebacker Nick Holt joked that Doughty has been in college for 20 years. Doughty said it feels more "like 36 years." But this year is Doughty's final go-around – for real this time. "WKU is on the up and coming right now, and I'm really excited to see where our program goes after I leave this place," Doughty said Wednesday at Conference USA Football Media Day at the Boca Raton Resort & Club. "Hopefully I leave. I promise this is the last one." Opposing c
  2. North Texas 2014 record: 4-8 (2-6) 2015 media predicted finish: Fifth Explanation: Until North Texas has a quarterback who can complete more than a few passes a game, the Mean Green will hold a place near the bottom of the division. The schedule isn't friendly, either. North Texas got rewarded with games against Marshall and Middle Tennessee from the East. UTSA 2014 record: 4-8 (3-5) 2015 media predicted finish: Sixth Explanation: 2014 was supposed to be the year for UTSA with one of the nation's most experienced teams. Injuries and inconsistent play led to a disappointing finish, and now 32 p
  3. Single-game tickets for Tennessee football have been on sale for only two weeks, but the Vols have effectively sold out their two most highly anticipated home games. According to Chris Fuller, Tennessee's associate athletic director for external operations, the Vols have sold 5,653 single-game tickets for their Sept. 12 home opener at Neyland Stadium against perennial Big 12 power Oklahoma and 5,574 single-game tickets for their Oct. 10 home game against SEC East favorite Georgia. A single-game ticket for Oklahoma was $105 with Georgia at $90. The Vols have sold about 64,000 season tickets, Fu
  4. Skip Holtz sat at his designated Conference USA Media Day table last year in Dallas for what amounted to be a standard, ho-hum business trip. Holtz, entering his second season as Louisiana Tech’s head coach at the time, was hardly the focus. Sure, he did a local TV segment where he playfully interviewed running back Kenneth Dixon and linebacker Tony Johnson, but other than that, not much attention was thrown the Bulldogs’ way. Coming off a 4-8 season at the time, there wasn’t a particular reason for a spotlight. Plus, C-USA coaches predicted Tech to finish fourth in the West. They did advise T
  5. Britton Banowsky’s impact on Conference USA has been well documented during the past 13 years. From bowl tie-ins, cost of attendance and conference realignment, including helping land Louisiana Tech in C-USA in 2013, Banowsky kept the conference afloat during chaotic times across the country. Conference USA presidents will have to find another leader this fall after Banowsky announced Thursday he is stepping down to focus on his charitable background and serve as the executive director of the College Football Playoff Foundation. A decision won’t likely happen until the fall when C-USA Board
  6. Editor's note: This is the eighth part of a series looking ahead to Marshall University football opponents in the 2015 season. North Texas visits Marshall on Oct. 24. HUNTINGTON — As the old addge goes, if you have three quarterbacks, you really have none. There are exceptions to the rule in some cases, such as Marshall University two years ago when it had Rakeem Cato and Blake Frohnapfel. North Texas, however, is not Marshall circa 2013. The Mean Green had three quarterbacks get on the field in 2014 and all of them suffered the same fate of inconsistency. The result was a paltry offense that
  7. As the 2015 football season approaches, we will look at each position on the Mean Green’s roster. UNT’s wide receivers are up today.

  8. The Paul Hornung Award, now in its sixth year, is named for the former Flaget High School, Notre Dame and NFL great who won the 1956 Heisman Trophy. Players can be added to the watch list during the season. A panel of college football experts selects players for the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll based on performance each week. A national selection committee of 16 sports journalists and former NFL players votes for the Hornung Award finalists and the winner, with fan voting comprising the 17th vote. The winner will be honored at a banquet at the Galt House Hotel in February. Last year's winner
  9. North Texas came out of spring practice with a few key spots in its offensive lineup set heading into the 2015 season. Center Kaydon Kirby and wide receiver Carlos Harris have stared for years and aren’t vacating their spots this fall. That doesn’t mean the Mean Green don’t have some questions to answer, though. Andrew McNulty, who started the final six games at quarterback for UNT last season, will battle DaMarcus Smith for the starting job. The JUCO transfer will be eligible in the fall after missing spring practice. While that battle will take center stage, UNT also has questions along it o
  10. Under direct supervision of the Head Basketball Coach, the Director of Basketball Operations is responsible for coordinating all aspects of basketball operations for the University of North Texas basketball team. Responsibilities of the position include, but are not limited to: * Coordinates all aspects of basketball team travel * Completes all necessary documents to have team travel approved by the Business Office and PPS prior to the season * Submit all necessary bids per the State of Texas and University policies for all buses and hotels * Reconciles all team travel in a timely manor * Coor
  11. Good turnout at the camp, about 140. All the coaches were there dressed in black, dealing with the humidity and heat. This is tough duty, they had an 8 hour day and got right on the road to Houston and then back up east Texas. Tommy Perry still has primary responsibility in SA and DeMarcus Hicks does recruiting outside of SA and Hill Country. A lot of good QB prospects in this region, more than typically and a few are on our radar. Canales was there and commented that the hurry up offense was working well and was well received by the players. Simmonds will need a little time replacing 4 of
  12. A set of sweeping rules changes in college basketball were approved today. The Associated Press covered the entire slate of adjustments in its story that came out this afternoon. Among the highlights … – The shot clock in the men’s game will drop from 35 to 30 seconds. – The women’s game will be played with four 10-minute quarters. – The restricted arc under the basket will be extended from three feet to four feet. – The number of timeouts and stoppages during games will also be cut down. The big fallout from the entire set of changes is a faster-paced game. Coaches knew this was coming for mo
  13. Offensive OutlookSokol threw for 3,436 yards and 30 touchdowns as the field general for offensive coordinator Tony Peterson. Replacing Sokol is former Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel who transferred to Louisiana Tech to play his final season of college football after a disappointing career with the Gators. Driskel was a former top recruit who struggled with turnovers and staying healthy during his time in Gainesville, but the chance for a happy ending exists in this system that should be a welcome sight for Driskel after his offensive coaching staff at Florida was in a constant state of flux.
  14. Students make their way around campus at UNT in Denton, on Wednesday, March 18, 2015. (Vernon Bryant/The Dallas Morning News) AUSTIN A factious measure to allow the licensed concealed carrying of handguns in most public university buildings is scheduled for debate in the House on Tuesday, the last day for the lower chamber to give initial passage to major legislation. The House debate on so-called campus carry is expected to be lengthy and feature fierce opposition from the Democratic minority. And the discussion is a long time coming, given that the Senate passed the measure a full two m
  15. Heading into his sixth season at the Herd's helm, Holliday was ranked No. 1 in Conference USA, No. 15 among the Group of Five conferences and No. 68 overall. In C-USA, Holliday was followed (in order) by Rice's David Bailiff (No. 72 overall), Louisiana Tech's Skip Holtz (No. 73), UTSA's Larry Coker (No. 82), UTEP's Sean Kugler (No. 83), Western Kentucky's Jeff Brohm (No. 93), North Texas' Dan McCarney (No. 94), Middle Tennessee's Rick Stockstill (No.97), Old Dominion's Bobby Wilder (No. 102), Charlotte's Brad Lambert (No. 111), Florida Atlantic's Charlie Partridge (No. 112), Southern Miss' T

  17. The first mass commencement ceremony for the University of North Texas at Apogee Stadium is days away, and staff members have released an official weather plan if the rain continues into Saturday night. If there is inclement weather, the universitywide commencement will move inside the UNT Coliseum, according to the plan. The commencement will feature Gov. Greg Abbott as speaker and will begin at 8 p.m. The exception is the College of Arts and Sciences graduates, who have their “break-out” ceremonies at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Saturday. These ceremonies are like UNT’s former commencem
  18. The teams in Conference USA West Division have all wrapped up spring drills and their spring games in the last few weeks. I am a big advocate of not over reacting to the outcome of spring games, but one can at least get a sense of where teams might be headed in the fall from what takes place. One can also get an idea of who the key players will be for each team in the conference. We have talked a ton about UNT over the last few weeks. Andrew McNulty is in position to hold on to the starting quarterback job heading into the Mean Green’s opener at SMU. There is a chance that JUCO transfe
  19. It’s nice to be ranked,” Tech coach Skip Holtz said. “I think you can kind of look of who’s in the top three or four and who’s in the bottom three or four, but whether you’re one or two or two or three, some of that is more for the fan base to get excited about the recruiting process.” Rivals.com has Louisiana Tech ranked the highest of the major recruiting sites at No. 74 overall and second in Conference USA by a slim margin behind Florida Atlantic, which already has 26 commitments. Tech has 22 commitments and will look to add a few more to get up to 25. 247sports.com has Tech at
  20. Bishop was one of five recruits to visit El Paso this weekend and was hosted by UTEP's starting guard Derek Elmendorrf, he had an offer from North Texas and East Carolina, and was also named First Team All-District 6-3A a year ago with a First Team All-District Honor this season as well. http://www.minerrush.com/2015/1/18/7757977/utep-football-2015-ol-chance-bishop-commits-after-official-visit

  23. UCF's 2015 non-conference schedule is coming more into focus after the recently-announced agreement with Stanford. The Knights will travel out west next year and welcome the Cardinal to Orlando in 2019. That leaves one vacancy, a game that must be played at Bright House Networks Stadium. Previously scheduled for 2015 were the return game at South Carolina and a home date with FIU. Conference USA: Middle Tennessee: The Blue Raiders have one vacancy, but with road dates already scheduled at Ball State and Illinois they're likely looking for another home game. Louisiana Tech: Same situat
