  1. I have taken a bit of a break from my post spring series on UNT’s roster, but now that I am back from vacation it’s time to get back at it. I started off with some positions where UNT has a lot to be confident about — quarterback and offensive line come to mind. Today, we take a look at an area of concern, UNT’s cornerback spot. UNT struggled at times last year at cornerback, despite having some experienced players — Royce Hill was a four-year starter and Steven Ford played two years for the Mean Green. By the middle of the year, freshman Freddie Warner had become a starter only to be lo
  2. SHREVEPORT -- To be drawn back into coaching, Gary DeLoach needed the right opportunity. His longtime relationship with Bradley Dale Peveto and the Northwestern State coach’s need for a defensive coordinator to replace Brad Laird turned out to be just the chance DeLoach needed. DeLoach, who sat out last season, will be back on a college football sideline in 2012 after Peveto hired him to replace Laird on the Demons staff. DeLoach’s hiring is subject to approval by the University of Louisiana Board of Supervisors. “I’d been wanting to get back in,” said DeLoach, who was defensive coord
  3. There’s a drop off after the top three teams in the projected standings, but Louisiana-Monroe, Western Kentucky, North Texas and Troy are all capable of pushing for a fourth-place finish and a winning record. The Warhawks are led by junior quarterback Kolton Browning, who should be healthy after dealing with a sternum injury most of the 2011 season. The Hilltoppers are on the rise, but must replace star running back Bobby Rainey. The Mean Green is in a similar position to Western Kentucky, as they have to replace running back Lance Dunbar, but should have an improved passing attack in 2012. Tr

  5. I’m back from a short vacation and am ready to resume my post-spring blog series on UNT’s roster position-by-position by evaluating the Mean Green’s offensive line, but first a fun story. Vicky and I went to Portland for a few days and picked up a car at the airport. The guy from Enterprise looked at my license and said, “Denton, home of the Mean Green.” Long story short, we got to talking and it turned out the guy went to Troy for a couple of semesters before graduating from a school in Florida. (Insert joke about the Troy guy working at Enterprise here) Anyway, just thought that
  6. For me it is nose tackle Tevinn Cantly. He was recruited by Dodge as a project who came on late in his high school career (perhaps he didn't play until his junior year?). He had that one thing you can't teach -- size and a fair amount of speed but was raw. Dodge or more likely Mendoza tried to play him at defensive end which was one of many personnel mistakes they made. He underachieved in his first two years and suffered some injuries. I was ready to write him off but last season he started to really show me something. The guy is 6-4, 300 and pretty quick. Something mentally clicked

  8. Just perusing the roster and I find the following Juco recruits: CB - DQ Johnson - Iowa Western CC: A junior that they needed at a critical position. QB - Brent Osborn - Northwestern Miss CC: A junior. After a rough soph year with few opportunities Ozzy came up strong in the Spring. I think Chico felt like they needed an insurance policy with Thompson's injury. TE - Andrew Power - Arizona Western CC: A senior. With Dodge refusing to sign tight ends, Power was a need sign for Mac. I think he's been a solid addition as a run blocker and has All Sun Belt potential. WR - Chris
  9. While we are on the topic of recruiting, it should be interesting to see how the announcement that UNT is on the way to Conference USA helps the Mean Green this year. The Sun Belt Conference has been great for UNT, but there is little question that playing in C-USA where the Mean Green will have some regional rivals fans and recruits care about will help matters quite a bit. I have heard that the announcement of the move has helped matters already. http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/archives/2012/05/brock-berglund-update-and-some.html

  12. Having made it through Spring training- I decided to take a look at the incoming signing class and identified 8 players that due to positional need, injury or other factors could make an immediate impact for us this season.
  13. Less than a month after it was announced that he and another former four-star recruit were leaving Texas, Darius Terrell has found himself a new collegiate football home and, conveniently enough, it doesn't require moving out of state. The tight end, who will play wide receiver with his new team, confirmed to the Denton Chronicle that the new team will indeed be North Texas. Terrell (pictured, No. 15) told the Chronicle that Houston, Arizona State and UTEP were among the schools interested in his services. Read more: http://collegefootba...ferring-to-unt/

  16. Life without Wilson Everyone knew redshirt sophomore running back Nic Smith would be cast as the primary back heading into this spring. He did not get many snaps on Saturday, finishing with 13 yards on two carries. His fellow backs, meanwhile, combined for 3.98 yards per carry and were contained for the majority of the game. Losing Jeffery Wilson obviously changes the complexion of the offense, but the three backs in Smith and sophomores DeAndre Torrey and Evan Johnson looked able to provide the necessary depth for this offense in the backfield even if they are missing the home run h
