  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 UNT and UH? Adding two state schools with more than 38,000 students and a demonstrable upward trajectory in multiple sports seems like a win-win in a few years. Not to mention, adding UH to the Big 12 could possibly hurt TAMUS recruiting which I am sure more than a few current Big 12 member schools would like.
  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 this season with 100 yards on 25 carries with three rushing scores. read more: https://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2018/10/uab_holds_off_north_texas_in_m.html

  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, Mason Fine was sacked in the end zone by Garrett Marino a play later for a safety to make it 21-12. The Blazers seized the momentum from that safety to cut UNT’s lead to 21-19 after a Spencer Brown 3-yard touchdown run on their following possession. Brown wasn’t done. He found the endzone on UAB’s very next possession - a 7-play, 67-yard drive - to give the Blazers a 26-21 lead with 14:16 remaining. read more: https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/football/article220381355.html Read more here: https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/football/article220381355.html#storylink=cpy Read more here: https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/football/article220381355.html#storylink=cpy

  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.

  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 is Fine's ability to scramble — the way he avoids sacks and gets rid of the football or how he never pulls the ball and keeps his eyes down field. It also doesn't show how he kept getting back up after Sangster planted him in the ground twice in the first quarter and again in the third. read more: https://www.clarionledger.com/story/sports/college/southern-miss/2018/10/13/southern-miss-falls-north-texas-30-7/1630775002/
  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. "They played extremely hard. "But we have to play a lot cleaner," he added. "We couldn't get into rhythm or sync offensively in the first half. We didn't play to our standards whatsoever. Just way too many mistakes." North Texas is 5-1, its best start since 1988. The Mean Green got off to their slowest start of the season, failing to score on their opening two possessions as UTEP generated early pressure on Fine. The Miners, meanwhile, with Ryan Metz starting at quarterback for injured Kai Locksley, put together a pair of sustained drives and jumped out to a 3-0 lead. An interception by North Texas' Tyreke Davis, however, turned away the second threat. North Texas mounted its first scoring drive late in the first quarter on the strength of a 38-yard pass from Fine to Bussey, followed by an 18-yard TD pass to Darden, who broke a tackle at the 7-yard line and tight-roped down the sideline for a touchdown. But the North Texas offense could not find consistency. Big plays were followed by critical mistakes, including dropped passes by multiple receivers and an inconsistent running game. UTEP, meanwhile enjoyed success through the air, especially on yards after catch, including turning a short toss into a 29-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to give the Miners a 10-7 lead. However, North Texas made three plays late in the half to stem UTEP's momentum. First, wide receiver Cudjoe Young fought his way through a defender for a 23-yard reception on third and 10. Five plays later, Cole Hedlund made a 52-yard field goal, the longest of his career and tied for the ninth longest in school history, to tie the game at 10-10. Then defensive back Nate Brooks stopped a UTEP threat just before halftime with his fourth interception of the season at the goal line. "We had some come-to-Jesus talks," Littrell said of the Mean Green halftime locker room. "We had too many drops. That's when we lose focus a little bit." The Mean Green found its offense in the third quarter, getting another field goal from Hedlund and an 11-yard touchdown on a shovel pass from Fine to Bussey for a 20-10 lead, as Fine completed 14 of 15 passes in the second half. But UTEP refused to fold. It responded early in the fourth quarter with a 90-yard scoring drive, the longest march North Texas has allowed this year, to edge within 20-17 with 10:43 to play. North Texas answered with a nine-play, 75-yard drive, burning up half of the period's remaining clock and opening a 27-17 lead on a Nic Smith 20-yard touchdown run. And UTEP struck back immediately with a 67-yard touchdown pass. The Miners then stopped the Mean Green's next possession, setting the stage for one final comeback attempt. That final rally, however, was foiled by Ejiya and English, who sacked the Miners' QB for a 10-yard loss to set up fourth and 17. The fourth-down play narrowly failed when a pass over the middle slipped off the receiver's finger tips. "A W is a W," Littrell said. "We're going to enjoy this win. But we are going to clean up these mistakes." Quick Hits North Texas' 5-1 start is its best since 1988, when it opened 6-1. The 1988 and 2018 starts each include a road win over a Power 5 opponent; at Arkansas in 2018, at Texas Tech in 1988. Junior quarterback Mason Fine (Peggs, Okla.) moved into second place in career passing yards at North Texas, surpassing Heart of Dallas Bowl MVP Derek Thompson (2009-13). Fine has 7,542 yards, and trails only Mitch Maher (1991-94) on the all-time list. Maher had 8.519 yards. If Fine maintains his current pace, he will overtake the top position this season. Fine had the 22nd 200-yard passing game of his career, second most in UNT history. Sophomore defensive back Tyreke Davis (Denton Ryan) had the Mean Green's 11th interception of the season and the first of his career when he undercut a UTEP receiver and made a diving catch to stop a Miner drive at the North Texas 28-yard line. Junior wide receiver Rico Bussey, Jr., (Lawton, Okla.) continued what is becoming the best season by a North Texas wide receiver since Casey Fitzgerald rewrote the UNT record book in 2007 and 2008. With 117 yards on 8 receptions against UTEP, Bussey is on pace to join UNT's list of top-10 single-season receiving seasons in yards, receptions and touchdowns. An 11-yard score in the third quarter was Bussey's eighth receiving TD of the year, which ties for the 10th most in a single season at UNT with Troy Redwine (1993-95). Bussey had the sixth 100-yard receiving game of his career, which ties for sixth most all-time at UNT with Johnny Quinn (2003-06), Redwine and David Yaege (1971-72). Senior wide receiver Cudjoe Young (Chattanooga, Tenn.) had the longest reception of his career, a 23-yard catch to set up UNT's game-tying field goal in the second quarter. Senior kicker Cole Hedlund (Argyle, Texas) hit a 52-yard field goal in the second quarter, the longest of his career and tied for the ninth longest in school history. Sophomore wide receiver Jaelon Darden (Houston) had a career high in receiving yards with 91, on 5 catches. Senior defensive back Nate Brooks (Whitehouse, Texas) recorded his fourth interception of the season, matching his season best in 2016. It was the eighth of his career. Redshirt sophomore running back DeAndre Torrey (Gautier, Miss.), who took over the primary rushing duties following the season-ending injury to Loren Easly, had a career-high 70 yards on 19 carries. Sophomore defensive lineman Dion Novil (Abilene, Texas) had the first field goal block of his career, tipping a 53-yard attempt in the third quarter. It was the Mean Green's first field-goal block since Zach Orr blocked a field goal in 2013, also against UTEP. Senior linebacker E.J. Ejiya (Blaine, Minn.) had one tackle for loss Saturday to give him 26.5 for his career, moving ahead of Corbin Montgomery (1996-99) for fifth most in UNT history. UNT's Keegan Brewer, of the famous punt return against Arkansas, was again on punt return duty. Each time Brewer called a fair catch, the Miners had a defender keeping a close eye on Brewer until he actually surrendered the ball to the officials. Although North Texas and UTEP have met in football 27 times (with UNT holding a 16-8-3 advantage), this was just the sixth meeting since 1980. All six have been since the Mean Green joined Conference USA in 2013. This was UNT's first win in El Paso since 1980, and it levels the C-USA series against the Miners at 3-3. Saturday was UTEP's homecoming, and the Miners celebrated their 1988 team. A member of that squad was North Texas defensive coordinator Troy Reffett, who, in addition to playing at UTEP, was on the Miners' coaching staff for 14 seasons. The UTEP-UNT connections run both ways. UTEP offensive coordinator Mike Canales was offensive coordinator, associate head coach, quarterbacks coach and twice an interim head coach at North Texas from 2010 to 2015, and UTEP offensive line coach Mike Simmonds held the same position with the Mean Green from 2011 to 2015. link: https://meangreensports.com/news/2018/10/6/football-mean-green-escape-el-paso.aspx View full article
  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. The Miners went for it, but Metz’s pass fell incomplete. read more: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/smiths-late-td-secures-north-texas-27-24-win-over-utep/2018/10/06/9742ab94-c9e1-11e8-9c0f-2ffaf6d422aa_story.html?utm_term=.a16f02ef6fed
  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 UNT could come. A two-point conversion attempt following the Bussey TD fell inches short. A 41-yard field goal attempt midway through the fourth quarter hit the left upright and bounced away. And a 46-yard field goal attempt with 41 seconds remaining was blocked. "That was two teams fighting extremely hard," North Texas coach Seth Littrell said. "I'm not disappointed in how hard we fought or how hard we played. We just made too many mistakes to beat a good football team. "We just made some mistakes that we haven't made this year." Among those mistakes were two lost fumbles that led directly to seven points at the end of the first half and four penalties for 55 yards - not a lot of flags or yardage, but they kept alive a Louisiana Tech second-quarter drive that resulted in points. After playing with a lead for four-straight games and through the first quarter Saturday, North Texas finally struggled in the second quarter, getting out-scored by the Bulldogs 20-0. "That second quarter was as bad football as we've played in a while," Littrell said. "That's the first adversity we've faced." "We gave them too much time to throw," North Texas linebacker E.J. Ejiya said. "Louisiana Tech is a great team. They came out ready to play, and their quarterback was a little too comfortable in the pocket." It was the league opener for both teams, who were preseason picks to finish 1-2 in Conference USA's West Division. It was the first loss of the season for the Mean Green (4-1, 0-1) and the first home loss for North Texas since it lost in 2016 to Louisiana Tech (3-1, 1-0). As they have all season, the Mean Green started fast, putting together three scoring drives in their first four possessions, all ending in touchdowns. North Texas ripped off yards in chunks. Screens to DeAndre Torrey, Nic Smith and Loren Easly netted 79 yards, Easly had runs of 23, 13 and 9 yards, and Fine threw a 36-yard scoring strike to Michael Lawrence. Easly followed his 177-yard performance a week ago with a 111-yard effort Saturday. The Bulldogs responded with three scoring drives of their own, fueled a 48-yard run, a 43-yard pass, and a trio of conversions on third-and-long situations. Each time, however, the North Texas defense limited Louisiana Tech to field goals to build a 21-9 lead midway through the second quarter. But for the first time this year, things began to unravel for North Texas. The Louisiana Tech pass rush began to take a toll on the Mean Green, holding them scoreless in the second quarter, the first period in which UNT has not scored this year. The Bulldog offense finally broke through late in the half, reaching the end zone on a 8-yard touchdown pass 4:30 before halftime to cut the gap to 21-16, then tacked on a fourth field goal to draw within 21-19. The Bulldogs amassed 272 yards in the first half, the most the Mean Green has allowed before halftime all year. North Texas then compounded its problems with two fumbles late in the half, the first setting up a Louisiana Tech punt that UNT fumbled and the Bulldogs recovered at the Mean Green 5-yard line with 38 seconds left in the half. On the next play, the Bulldogs got their second TD pass of the half. For the first time this season, North Texas found itself trailing, 26-21. "Louisiana Tech is a great team," North Texas linebacker E.J. Ejiya said. "They came out ready to play. Their quarterback was a little too comfortable Louisiana Tech added another field goal in the third quarter but that was all the offense the Mean Green defense allowed in the second half, giving the North Texas offense a chance for a comeback. The rally started well. Easly had 9- and 11-yard runs sandwiched around a 23-yard pass to Bussey to move UNT deep into LA Tech territory. Faced with fourth-and-2 from the Louisiana Tech 7-yard line, Fine tossed a shovel pass Bussey, who swept around the left side for a touchdown. Bussey finished with nine catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns. The two-point attempt, however, fell short when Jaelon Darden, on a reverse run-pass option, was tackled inside the 1-yard line, inches away from tying the game. The Mean Green defense, which picked up the intensity in the second half, forced the Bulldogs to punt on their final possessions to give the offense a chance. Twice more North Texas drove into scoring position, including on its final drive in the last two minutes of the game, but the two field goal attempts failed. Quick Hits It was throwback day at Apogee Stadium. In honor of Mean Joe Greene, North Texas wore 1967 uniforms and helmets, and the scoreboards referred to North Texas as NTSU. The day began with the unveiling of a statue of Mean Joe in front of gate 2 on the west side of Apogee Stadium, an event that drew multiple NFL hall-of-fame players, including Tony Dorsett, Charles Haley, Franco Harris and Earl Campbell. As a part of the celebration, North Texas brought Greene's retired No. 75 out for one night. It was worn by junior defensive end LaDarius Hamilton (Corrigan, Texas) Saturday's attendance was 30,105, topping the previous Apogee high set against SMU in the season opener. Junior wide receiver Michael Lawrence (Sweetwater, Texas) had his first touchdown reception of the year, in the first quarter. That TD toss put junior quarterback Mason Fine (Peggs, Okla.) over 7,000 passing yards for his career, the fourth player in UNT history to reach that mark. Fine moved past North Texas All-Century QB Steve Ramsey (1967-69) for third place in career passing yards at North Texas. Fine has 7,248 yards. Fine threw three touchdowns Saturday, giving him 50 for his career and tying him for third all-time at North Texas with Scott Hall (2000-04). Fine has 21 career 200-yard passing games, surpassing Steve Ramsey (1967-69) and Derek Thompson (2009-13) for second most in program history. Junior wide receiver Rico Bussey Jr. (Lawton, Okla.) has 15 career touchdown receptions to move into a tie for seventh all-time at North Texas with George Marshall (1999-02). Redshirt senior linebacker E.J. Ejiya (Blaine, Minn.) upped his career total of tackles for loss to 25.5, passing Zach Orr (2010-13) for sixth most in school history. Redshirt senior linebacker Brandon Garner (Mansfield, Texas) had half a tackle for loss Saturday, giving him 24.5 for his career, seventh most in school history. Redshirt freshman defensive back Jordan Roberts (Ardmore, Okla.) had the first pass break-up of his career, tipping away a Louisiana Tech deep pass in the third quarter. Senior kicker Cole Hedlund (Argyle, Texas) had his streak of consecutive field goals made snapped at 10 when a 42-yard attempt in the fourth quarter hit the upright. Redshirt junior running back Loren Easly (Houston) had his second 100-yard rushing game of the season and second in as many weeks. Easly had 110 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown. North Texas, which allowed just six sacks through the first four games, gave up a season-high five sacks Saturday. North Texas' streak of scoring in consecutive quarters to start the season was halted at 17 when it did not score in the second quarter Saturday. The North Texas defense had its streak of not allowing points on the opponent's opening possession snapped at four games. Louisiana Tech kicked a 28-yard field goal on its first drive. What's Next North Texas faces its first road C-USA game when it travels to El Paso to take on the UTEP Miners Saturday, October 6, at 6:30 p.m. central time. The game will be televised on beIN.

  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 ignore. On top of creating a more intimidating game day atmosphere, end zone projects realize the potential for unique seating and premium spaces along with integrating new team spaces that benefit more than just football student-athletes. Each university considering an end zone renovation has a wealth of options unique to its culture and footprint. We’ve been fortunate to work on a number of end zone projects for premiere college football programs in recent years. Here’s an inside look at how the latest took shape and help take their respective programs to the next level: read more: https://populous.com/full-circle-collegiate-end-zone-renovations-come-age

  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 the reasons they’re putting up so many points because they’re making people play in space. I don’t think you can take last year’s results and compare it to this year’s team because it’s completely different what they’re featuring. Fine is a year older, he is now the king of the hill and the feature of that offense. He’s doing a nice job.” read more: https://www.thenewsstar.com/story/sports/college/louisiana-tech/2018/09/25/louisiana-tech-preps-different-north-texas-team/1425957002/
  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 markers to tell us who’ll be the front-runner to represent their division come the first weekend in December.

  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 Bussey for a 22 yard touchdown pass – On UNT’s wnd drive of the ball game, Liberty’s defense had forced a 3rd and 11 from the 22 yard line. Hoping to hold them to a field goal attempt, Mason Fine had other plans as he found Bussey for a 22 yard score giving the Mean Green an early 14-0 lead. Buckshot intercepted at the goal line – In what may have been the turning point of the game, Buckshot was intercepted at the goal line as he tried to find B.J. Farrow on a quick slant. The senior WR was open, but Khairi Muhammad jumped the route ending the Flames drive that would have cut the deficit in half. Read more: http://www.aseaofred.com/dont-forget-these-5-north-texas/
  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 ball, executing and doing all the things we need to do. We’ve still got a lot of good football left, and I’m excited to see how our team will respond as we move forward here in the next two games on the road.” On not taking advantage of two opportunities to score, one in each half... “Those two opportunities that we didn’t score put a little damper on some things. We still have to respond. Our defense has to respond when they have opportunities to get off the field, but they were on the field a lot. We didn’t sustain enough drives. On the running game... “Overall, we ran the ball pretty good most of the time. There’s a few times where we didn’t have success, but I think overall we had some things in the first two or three quarters where we ran the ball pretty good. Our throwing game was not on par as far as what it should be.”
  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!
