  1. Miner: UTSA’s inaugural football season was 2011; was last year was supposed to be ‘the year’? Karels: “Yes it was. It was the year to get a 10 win season, so it was disappointing when they finished 6-5. Their first game against Houston was canceled due to Hurricane Harvey, and they still came out and beat Baylor at McLane Stadium to open the season. The momentum of a 3-0 start, however, kind of fizzled out. The Roadrunners lost five of their last eight games and missed a bowl game. Four of those losses were by one possession and a total of 17 points.[4]” read more: https://247
  2. FRISCO, Texas – North Texas spent more than a decade in the football wilderness. The Mean Green were 41-104 from 2005-16, with only one winning season during that period. North Texas finally broke through last season in its second year under coach Seth Littrell. The Denton, Texas, school went 9-3 during the regular season and won the Conference USA West Division title. Losses by a combined 44 points to Florida Atlantic in the C-USA title game and Troy in the New Orleans Bowl put a sour end to that season. But the 9-5 campaign was still overwhelmingly positive for a program

  4. HUNTINGTON - On paper, it appears that Florida Atlantic should run through Conference USA in 2018. It isn't an unfounded thought, considering the Owls' tightest football game the last three months of the season was a 30-25 home win over Marshall in which the Owls used their defense to force turnovers and keep the Thundering Herd at arm's length, leading for two scores for much of the contest with the Herd battling to get back in it. For all intents, THAT was a young Florida Atlantic team. Young talent, new coaching staff, new schemes. Now, head coach Lane Kiffin has expecta
  5. As North Texas prepared for its CBI opener at South Dakota, Grant McCasland had a problem. The Mean Green were limping when they accepted the tournament invite, having lost seven of their last eight games. McCasland had a dynamic, slashing playmaker in sophomore point guard Ryan Woolridge but the court had shrunk around him. UNT had shot just 28.3 percent from three in the previous four games, and McCasland needed to create space for his lead guard. As the morning shoot around unfolded, junior guard Michael Miller missed shot after shot. McCasland couldn’t take his eyes off of him.
  6. Put any coach in front of a microphone and ask him if stars matter and he’ll probably say one or all of the following: “We don’t look at that stuff.” “We trust our own evaluations.” “Give me a 5-star heart any day.” College football coaches are a pathologically competitive lot and recruiting is the lifeblood of the sport, but they don’t care about recruiting rankings? Look at it this way: You could build a pretty solid roster of NFL players taken in the fifth round or beyond, but you’d be nuts to take that roster over a roster of first-round picks. Being a 5-star recrui
  7. Joe Greene met his wife Agnes at the University of North Texas over 50 years ago. This summer, Joe Greene was back near campus to announce the start of the Agnes Lucille Craft Greene Memorial Scholarship named in his late wife's honor. Agnes Greene passed away after battling breast cancer in 2015. The scholarships will be presented annually to students at North Texas whose parents have battled cancer, with breast cancer "being a particular focus since that tragically took her life." “Not only the scholarship, but my kids, Major, Delon and JoQuel, they wanted to honor their mother in that

  9. "What sold me on UNT was not only the fact that it’s a Division I school and in an amazing conference, but the love that I felt from both the track and the basketball coaches right away," said Henderson, who recently graduated from Martin. "My trainer told me to go where I was most wanted and I definitely feel like I belong at UNT. The coaches and teammates from both programs will look out and support me." She received an offer from UNT track first to run and compete in the triple jump, but she waited because she always loved basketball. The coaches finally reached out to the UNT girls ba
  10. Moore is a Hall of Fame football coach who won 215 games at App State from 1989-2012. He led the Mountaineers to three straight national championships from 2005-07, directed the historic 34-32 road upset of Michigan to begin the 2007 season and helped Appalachian capture 10 conference championships in 24 seasons. “The thing that happens to you when you stay some place for as long as we have, it becomes dear to you in a lot of ways — a lot more than wins and losses,” Moore said. “There’s so many things that happen in your life, so many things you have memories of that are everlasting, mor
  11. 21. Mason Fine, Jr. North Texas A smallish, fun baller, he'll be at the helm of one of college football's most dangerous offenses, coming off a 4,052-yard, 31-score season. Get ready for him to bomb away and push for a 40-touchdown pass campaign for the electrifying attack. read more: https://a.msn.com/r/2/AAzvFfC?m=en-us&referrerID=InAppShare

  14. May 23, 2018 NASHVILLE – Junior quarterback Mason Fineheadlines a group of eight North Texas players named to Athlon Sports’ preseason all Conference USA teams. Fine was selected as the first team quarterback following his breakout season a year ago. The Peggs, Oklahoma, native set single-season program records in passing yards (4,052), passing touchdowns (31), completions (324) and pass attempts (511) on his way to C-USA Offensive Player of the Year honors. He had 17 touchdowns of 20-yards or more, six of which went for 50-plus yards. Four Mean Green players were selected to the se
  15. Frisco and University of North Texas officials on Tuesday unveiled a plan for a 5,000-student branch. But the plan to add one more university campus to a North Texas region already served by almost 40 traditional colleges and universities has some lawmakers and education officials vowing to look closely at the plan before giving it their support. In a series of unanimous votes Tuesday, Frisco, two city entities and the UNT System board of regents paved the way for UNT to open the branch campus on Preston Road near the Dallas North Tollway. The votes call for UNT to begin constructi
  16. Lesa Benton Roe’s mother discouraged her from going to college. No one in the Benton family — not even Lesa’s older brother and sister — had made it past high school. And her mother, a switchboard operator in Gainesville, Fla., feared that her youngest couldn’t cut it, even though Lesa was a straight-A student. “She was trying to brace me for failure,” Roe says. “But I had an internal drive to be something more.” Fortunately, Roe listened to her father, a groundskeeper for the Veterans Administration who had always regretted not having a college degree and expected her
