  1. AUSTIN, Texas Spring drills were over. The final intrasquad game in April 2013 was in the books, and Dan McCarney finally went in for a simple angiogram for chest pains as he had promised his wife. When the North Texas football coach awoke from the procedure, he saw a look of concern on her face. She looked like somebody shot both of our dogs, McCarney said. She told me, You have four blocked arteries. Theyre 95 percent blocked. Surgery was not an option. It was mandatory. And within 48 hours, McCarney was on an operating table undergoing quadruple heart bypass surgery. That he was in

  3. Bye weeks make me lazy, so you're getting these late. Also, Cellular Data Plan Consideration! All of my images will be hosted efficiently and with as low of file sizes as possible. First off, Week 4 saw an excellent win... UNT90: "But C'mon, it's still a 4A HS team." There seems to be this weird Twitter relationship going on amongst a number of masked fans... We learned that the numbers from the State audit are coming down... ...but we're still hella pissed that Chancellor Jackson gets a free pass in all of it. But back to th
  4. UCF's 2015 non-conference schedule is coming more into focus after the recently-announced agreement with Stanford. The Knights will travel out west next year and welcome the Cardinal to Orlando in 2019. That leaves one vacancy, a game that must be played at Bright House Networks Stadium. Previously scheduled for 2015 were the return game at South Carolina and a home date with FIU. Conference USA: Middle Tennessee: The Blue Raiders have one vacancy, but with road dates already scheduled at Ball State and Illinois they're likely looking for another home game. Louisiana Tech: Same situat
  5. So I half-way wish I was quicker on the draw for this one... the comedic timing would have been better. You'll see... LEVITY CURES ALL! My god, those CSC people are nuts. And what the hell is wrong with the people selecting our in-stadium music? I mean, c'mon. The Chicken Dance?!? ​The first half was nothing short of utter embarrassment... Which led to 1000 Dajon Williams threads... EDIT: substitute "faculty" for "coaches" and "arraignment" for "next game"... DOUBLE EDIT: a brief bit of language... so maybe don't play it at work. BUT THEN MAC
  6. I posted a low resolution copy of the UNT helmet the Associated Press moved the other day and noted that there is a good chance that the Mean Green would wear that design this season. It was one of the more popular blog posts of the last few days, which A. makes me sad and B. prompted me to ask for some additional information on this important topic.

  7. This year's series will have a decided Texas flavor. It begins Friday with "Mean" Joe Greene, the Temple native who starred at North Texas before becoming a mainstay of the Steelers' "Steel Curtain" defensive line and nemesis of the "Luv Ya Blue"-era Oilers. Also on the schedule are former Oilers quarterback Warren Moon, Oct. 3; former Sealy and SMU running back Eric Dickerson, Oct. 10; and former University of Texas Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams, Oct. 31.

  9. To all Mean Green fans who live in Austin and are not going to the game- I called the Silo on 7th and they confirmed they will be showing the game. If anyone wants to come join me at 11 am on the East Side, I will be in my green SOW t shirt cheering the Mean Green on (with my computer open to do a game recap obviously). If anyone would like to join and support a UNT bar, please let me know. Thanks.
  10. DENTON, TEXAS North Texas made a big breakthrough last season winning nine games, including a bowl on New Year's Day. Now comes a significant test for coach Dan McCarney and the Mean Green after their first winning record in nine seasons. They will be trying to do it again while replacing so many starters. "It's fun, it's exciting, it's nerve-wracking when you have so many guys that you don't know who your best guy's going to be, don't know who your starters are going to be," McCarney said. Four of the Mean Green's five returning offensive starters are linemen, three of them seniors wit
  11. There has been a lot of talk about quarterback play over the last few weeks, and justifiably so in a season UNT must replace one of the better ones in recent Mean Green history. I bring it up because Dan McCarney talked a little bit about what he is looking for in a new starting quarterback this week during his annual State of the Green Two-A-Days Edition Address. “Our system, our identity and how we do it is to take care of the football on offense first. You have heard me say it before — a punt is a hell of a lot better than a turnover. We have a really good punter and good special t
  12. 1 Who will play QB? With Derek Thompson graduating, Head Coach Dan McCarney needs to figure out who will take over. Mac says it's wide open but said junior Andrew McNulty and sophomore Josh Greer will run mostly with the first teams. Look for one of those two to get the nod in the opener against Texas and have the best chance to take over the reigns early. 2 Will the defense stay strong? North Texas lost some key contributors from last seasons top notch defense in linebackers Zach Orr, Will Wright and safety Marcus Trice. Orr and Trice are competing in NFL camps now. The defensive line
  13. The on-going saga of who will be on the field when UNT travels to Austin to face Texas took another turn over the weekend that we have to yet to mention here on the blog. We’ll get to that, but first UNT QB target Chris Riddle posted a photo on his Instagram account of both him and a teammate at Central Florida for media day. Riddle is a good prospect and was high on UNT when I talked to him a while back for our on-going UNT recruiting target series. Riddle has visited UCF multiple times. He’ll land somewhere.

  14. One of the more important dates on the UNT football calender has arrived. The Mean Green’s Friday Night Lights camp is tongiht. UNT’s football staff travels the state and sees a host of the best players in Texas high school football at its satellite camps. The best of the best are often invited to Denton for the final camp in the series — Friday Night Lights. The concept is pretty common in college football. Schools often have select camps for their top prospects. The format UNT follows is a bit different. Friday Night Lights is open to any high school player who wants to come. Players c
  15. After banging out a few stories for the tomorrow’s papers, I’m back with some follow-up thoughts from Conference USA media day. I wrote a main story and a notebook for tomorrow’s DRC (buy the newspaper), so there isn’t much I didn’t get in, but here’s one tidbit I omitted. Dan McCarney talked a little about opening against Texas and facing SMU early in the season … “North Texas has never beaten Texas and is 4-28 against SMU [actually, it's 4-28-1, but who's counting?],” McCarney said. “Rivalry? Rivalry at 4-28? We had better establish one where we have a chance and they have a chance.
  16. IRVING — At this time a year ago, North Texas felt pretty secure when it came to a few aspects of its team. Linebacker Zach Orr, running back Brandin Byrd and wide receiver Brelan Chancellor all seemed to be locks to start. And while Derek Thompson didn’t nail down the starting quarterback job until right before the Mean Green’s season opener, he had two years of experience as a starter under his belt heading into his senior year. UNT will have a little less certainty when it opens fall practice Aug. 5 in advance of its Aug. 30 season opener at Texas, especially at skill positions. Wha
  17. REGINA — Is it cooler to be a professional football player or an Olympic bobsledder? “They’re two different things,” says Johnny Quinn, a former Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver and a member of the United States’ 2014 Olympic bobsled team. “Walking into Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football, having my first reception on Monday Night Football — what a special moment. And walking in the opening ceremony, representing the United States, wearing the red, white and blue, competing on Olympic ice — what a special and unbelievable moment. “They’re different but both still so special.”
  18. An Offer is Not an Offer Until the LOI is Signed It’s an instant-information, instant-gratification recruiting world we live in, and nothing has proven to be more ambiguous than the scholarship offer. Prospects get lost in coach-speak and half-hearted overtures, oftentimes confusing interest for a concrete, all-expenses-paid invitation to join the program. In taking steps to avoid misinterpretation, assistant coaches Mark Elder and Darrell Dickey say they try to be as crystal-clear as humanly possible. “We don’t deal in committable vs. non-committable,” Elder says. “We’re not offering so

  20. Two of the best linebackers in recent North Texas history met just a few weeks ago during the Mean Green’s spring game and the festivities that surrounded it. Cody Spencer was back in town to be inducted into the UNT Athletic Hall of Fame and met Zach Orr, who followed in his footsteps during his career with the Mean Green. The hope for UNT is that the parallels between the two will continue sometime in the next few days during the NFL draft. Spencer began a his five-year NFL career after being selected in the sixth round of the 2004 draft. UNT has been waiting for its next player
  21. 4. Expect big things from North Texas, MTSU The Buzz: Conference USA saw six schools land into postseason bowls, two of those – East Carolina and Tulane – will no longer be a part of the league in 2014. North Texas and Middle Tennessee State also qualified and played for the postseason after terrific seasons in 2013. North Texas returns 17 starters from a squad that won nine games – it’s best season since moving up to the FBS. Middle Tennessee State won eight games for the second straight season. Both programs were ranked first and second in Conference USA in turnover margins. Read mor
  22. Q: Can you talk about the state of the North Texas football program as it comes to recruiting? A: I actually think that things are certainly on the rise there or at the very least trending in a more positive direction here recently. They have a nice new stadium and had a very good season on the field in 2013, which spurred the best signing class that I have seen them have in my time covering the region. The Class of 2014 commitment list is littered with prospects who I recall being very solid high school talents Read more: http://recruiting.scout.com/2/1396284.html
