  1. News arrived concerning a former Texas football head coach early this week, indicating that he will be shifting his role from coaching to the broadcast booth. Former Texas head coach Tom Herman is reportedly set to join the CBS Sports broadcast team this fall. Herman’s first game as a color analyst with CBS Sports will reportedly come on Sep. 3, when the North Texas Mean Green out of Conference-USA takes on the SMU Mustangs out of the American Athletic Conference. Moreover, this is definitely an interesting shift in roles for Herman after he joined the Chicago Bears as an offensive analyst/special projects coach following his departure from Texas a couple of years ago. Herman wound up spending just one season on staff with the Bears before making this shift to the commentator booth. read more: https://hookemheadlines.com/2022/08/08/former-texas-football-hc-tom-herman-to-join-cbs-broadcast-team/
  2. Two years ago, North Texas football went 1-11. On Saturday, the Mean Green clinched just the 18th 2-0 start in program history, and first since 1994. It’s incredible to think how this program has grown. That’s nothing compared to what the Mean Green can accomplish this weekend, as UNT travels five hours east to face off against SEC opponent Arkansas. read more: https://www.texasfootball.com/article/2018/09/13/unt-football-mean-green-can-launch-program-to-national-relevance-by-beating-arkansas
  3. Texas State spent decades beneath college football's upper echelon before it decided to strive for something greater. So in 2007, the university in San Marcos started raising money and mapping out a jump from the Football Championship Subdivision to the Football Bowl Subdivision, the NCAA's top level. Roughly 54 miles southwest, UT-San Antonio was on the verge of something even more ambitious. In 2012, UTSA went from having no football team to joining Texas State as the Lone Star State's newest FBS universities in the span of two years. Both schools, fueled by desire and donations, joined the growing list of in-state athletic departments ramping up their football programs. However, those moves come at a steep cost. Between 2013 and 2017, the schools' football programs have operated at a combined deficit of nearly $38.3 million, according to NCAA reports obtained through open records requests. Factoring in the cost of scholarships, coaching salaries and facility upgrades, football is by far the most expensive NCAA sport. For Texas State and UTSA, the lofty price tag is worth the prestige and opportunity that comes with having a football program. "In Texas, you need football," said Texas State athletic director Larry Teis when asked why that money isn't spent on another high-profile sport like men's basketball. "I hate to say it for those who don't have it, but you need football." Other schools seem to agree. Since 2010, at least six Texas schools have moved up to Division I (FCS or FBS). UT-Arlington, which shuttered its program in 1985 because of budget constraints, could be the next to join the mix. UTA athletic director Jim Baker has been in conversations regarding bringing back a football team, according to messages obtained through an open records request. Baker could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon. read more: https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/collegesports/2018/07/30/texas-need-football-starting-college-football-programin-lone-star-state-worth-price
  4. "North Texas' football program reached a new low over the weekend when head coach Dan McCarney was relieved of his duties following a historically bad loss to Portland State. The 66-7 loss was the worst loss an FBS program has suffered to an FCS opponent in NCAA history. The game was bad enough, even before it being UNT's homecoming game was factored in to the equation."

  5. WACO, Texas -- Imagine the incredulous looks you would have drawn a decade ago had you been brazen enough to forecast the current football landscape in the state of Texas. Instead of lining up a trip to the next game, your friends would have staged an intervention and lined you up for a trip to the shrink. Think about it. The 10-year anniversary of Texas' 2005 national championship season is approaching. The Longhorns were on top of the college football world after their unforgettable 41-38 win over USC in the title game. They were in the midst of a glorious nine-year stampede under Mack Brown that saw them win 10 or more games every year and five straight bowl games, including three BCS bowls.

  6. SEASON BREAKDOWN & PREDICTION — In a nutshell: Rice needs to prove itself in two areas before being taken seriously as a challenger to Tulsa, East Carolina, Marshall and Louisiana Tech in Conference USA. The first is in road games: Rice has won four regular-season games away from home over the last three years, with three coming in 2012 against Kansas (1-11), Tulane (2-10) and UTEP (3-9). This year's schedule sends the Owls away from home against Texas A&M, Houston, Tulsa, UTSA, New Mexico State, North Texas and UAB – giving this team only five true home games. Even if the Owls are a stronger team than UTSA, NMSU and UAB, is it safe to predict anything better than 3-4 in this season's road games? In my mind, considering the program's historically weak play on the road, whether Rice makes another postseason run hinges on whether it can defeat Kansas and Louisiana Tech at home. The second area: Rice needs to beat good teams. It'll be hard to view the Owls as anything but a lucky beneficiary of an easy schedule should this team reach six wins against Florida Atlantic, UTSA, New Mexico State, UTEP, North Texas and Tulane. Would that be a successful season? Yes, in many respects – because a bowl trip is a bowl trip, and Rice will take those where, when and however they come. But would that resume make Rice a top-75 team in the FBS? Probably not. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2013/06/10/rice-college-football-countdown-2013-preview/2407811/ 2013 TEAM OVERVIEW — Conference: Conference USA, West — Location: Houston — Nickname: Owls — Returning starters: 17 (7 offense, 10 defense) — Last year's ranking: No. 111 — 2012 record: 7-6 (4-4) — Last year's re-ranking: No. 70 — 2013 schedule: Aug. 31 at Texas A&M Sept. 14 Kansas Sept. 21 Houston (at Reliant Stadium) Sept. 28 Florida Atlantic Oct. 5 at Tulsa Oct. 12 at UTSA Oct. 19 at New Mexico State Oct. 26 UTEP Oct. 31 at North Texas Nov. 16 Louisiana Tech Nov. 21 at UAB Nov. 30 Tulane
