  1. Hello mates, Mean Green fan and graduate of '79 reaching out to you from across the pond. Does any one think that UNT to the Big 12 is even a remote possibility within the next decade? Granted, the conference might not exist by then but I've heard that a potential membership would require our athletic department to net over $25 million annually to even be considered. Surely with the development efforts we've seen in the last two years (both on the court/field/etc. and in the business side), it is not THAT crazy to believe we can be competing in a power five conference. Why not
  2. Another uniform thread! https://ucfknights.exposure.co/a-familiar-flight These may be the most bad-ass alternate/throwback/feauxback/tribute uniforms I've ever seen. It's chock full of little details and even some trolling of USF. I love it.
  3. The UAB Blazers overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to defeat North Texas, 29-21, to take a commanding lead in the Conference USA West division race. The Blazers (6-1) held North Texas to only 64 rushing yards and sacked Mason Fine a total of four times for a loss of 13 yards. Fine becoming the first quarterback to throw for more than 200 yards on the UAB defense after going 29 of 40 for 336 yards and 3 touchdowns. A.J. Erdely finished 14 of 22 for 189 yards while running the ball 14 times for 23 yards. Sophomore running back Spencer Brown hit the century mark for the third time t

  5. North Texas just couldn’t get out of its own way. The Mean Green had everything going for themselves against Alabama-Birmingham at Legion Field on Saturday, until they didn’t. A safety that cut their lead to 21-12 early in the third quarter completely shifted the momentum of the game in the Blazers’ favor, as they went on to score the final 19 points in a 29-21 victory. UNT (6-2, 2-2) was in danger of letting UAB back to within a score early in the third when senior DB Nate Brooks stripped and recovered a fumble at the Mean Green 1 to preserve the two-score cushion. However, Mas

  7. I just went through their online roster and expected to see a high level of juco transfers but holy cow, this may be the most transfer laden program we have ever played. I counted 60 players on their active roster who are either juco or 4-year college transfers. Poor Rice with their high academic standards must have felt like they were playing an NFL team last weekend! I list the transfer or juco/community college for each transfer player listed on their official roster below.

  8. DENTON, Texas — Mason Fine cooked the Golden Eagles again. And after Saturday's performance, he ought to have the recipe just right. North Texas pulled away late for a 30-7 win over Southern Miss, Fine's third win in as many seasons over the Golden Eagles. "At some point, you just have to give credit where credit is due," Southern Miss linebacker Jeremy Sangster said. "That guy is good. Really, really good." The senior threw for 292 yards and a touchdown. Statistically, it was an underwhelming performance for the Maxwell and Manning Award candidate. But what the stats don't show
  9. It was just barely enough. Winless UTEP, playing like a team desperate to snap the nation's longest losing streak, hung with the Mean Green all night. Twice North Texas built a 10-point lead in the second half, and twice the Miners pulled within a field goal. It took a quarterback sack by North Texas' E.J. Ejiya and Bryce English in the final two minutes, then surviving a Miners' near miss on fourth down, before the Mean Green finally sent the Miners to their 18th-straight loss, 27-24. "I want to give coach (Dana) Dimel and UTEP a lot of credit," North Texas coach Seth Littrell said.
  10. EL PASO, Texas — Nick Smith sprinted 20 yards to score in the fourth quarter to give North Texas just enough cushion to hold off UTEP 27-24 on Saturday night. Smith’s touchdown gave the Mean Green a 27-17 lead with 5:46 left to play. The Miners responded two plays later when Ryan Metz, in his first start for UTEP, hit Keynan Foster in stride for a 67-yard scoring strike to trail 27-24. UTEP, which has lost 18 consecutive games, got the ball back with 2:45 remaining but the Mean Green defense stiffened when Bryce English and E.J. Ejiya sacked Metz, making it fourth-and-17 on UTEP’s 24
  11. DENTON - In front of the largest home crowd in school history, North Texas suffered through a disastrous second quarter that wiped away a 21-6 lead and from which the Mean Green ultimately could not rally in a 29-27 loss to Louisiana Tech Saturday at Apogee Stadium. UNT quarterback Mason Fine, battered, sacked five times and limping from a leg injury suffered in the third quarter, led the Mean Green on three second-half drives to attempt to bring North Texas back from a 29-21 deficit. The Mean Green scored late in the third quarter on a Fine pass to Rico Bussey Jr., but that was as far as
  12. It doesn’t take a Hall of Fame coach to know the end zone is the literal measurement of success for a college football program. Visit it more often than your opponent on a week-to-week basis and championships tend to follow. Collegiate athletic departments across the United States have also honed in on the potential of the space that lies just beyond the pylons. End zone expansions are the latest trend in Division I collegiate football stadium design – and our design team doesn’t see the movement ending anytime soon. The proven revenue and performance benefits are simply too powerful to i

  14. “North Texas has a different team than they did a year ago,” Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz said Tuesday. “A year ago, they had a great tailback, they were featuring him, had a young sophomore quarterback. They were running the ball more, they were in bigger sets. “This year, you’re seeing them more in four-wides, they put more speed on the field. They spread the field throwing the ball a lot more. A year ago, they had a senior tailback that was their workhorse and they were feeding him. You could load the box more. This year it’s more pass-first, run-second and that’s one of t
  15. RUSTON – Many might argue that game one of an eight-game conference schedule presents too small a sample size and is way too early to gauge if a team stands a chance to make its league’s title showcase. Under normal circumstances, I would agree with those folks. I’m usually cautious and so much can happen over the course of a season. But this week, I’m throwing caution to the win and I’m here to tell you Saturday night’s clash between Louisiana Tech (2-1) and North Texas (4-0) at Apogee Stadium, a heavyweight slugfest of the clear top two Conference USA West squads, fits all the mark
  16. A new weekly feature, where we look at the 5 plays that had the biggest outcome on the game. The Flames were unable to slow down the high octane Mean Green offense despite two lightning delays. Liberty also failed to convert on two of three trips into the red zone as they were routed by a very good North Texas squad, 47-7. Throughout every game, there are several moments or plays that go unnoticed, or could be overlooked. Still, they play a huge role in the eventual outcome. Let’s look at five plays that changed the direction of this game Mason Fine connects with Rico Busse
  17. Liberty Head Coach Turner Gill - Overall thoughts on the game... “I want to give God the glory. We obviously had the weather and all those things that took place. I don’t think it really distracted our guys. They were just the better football team. They executed better than we did. We didn’t make plays when we had to make them. From an offensive perspective, we just never got anything going. Most of it was us, but someof it was them. But overall, they were the better football. We just have to get better at the things we need to get better at, and that’s blocking, tackling, catching the ba
  18. To put this week in perspective, the last time UNT went 4-0 was in...1959. We went 8-0 that season (1959) before running into a loss at Tulsa in the 9th game. We went undefeated through the first 8 games of 1967, but that included a 31-31 tie with NMSU in the 3rd game of the year. Shout out to great fan @island eagle for the info!
