  1. Championships arrive with regularity in Denton, judging by recent history. Before the calendar flipped to 2013, Ryan had won state titles football and basketball and Guyer in football not all that long ago. North Texas won a bowl game back in 2002 —and that was just for starters. What made 2013 special in Denton-area sports is the string of championships that seemed to come one right after another.

  2. For the last eight years there’s been a slumbering giant in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex that has finally stretched its arms, let out a big yawn and started stomping around a little. The North Texas Mean Green, led by former Iowa State Cylcones head coach Dan McCarney, took home an impressive 36-14 win over the UNLV Rebels on Wednesday in the Heart of Dallas Bowl, showing they’re back on the map in the Lone Star State. In the early 2000s North Texas had a solid run of success under former head coach Darrell Dickey, winning four consecutive Sun Belt Conference championships from 2001-200
  3. I stopped by practice to talk to Dan McCarney and his players a couple of days ago and picked up a tidbit that has been talked about briefly and made its rounds a bit on Twitter. I hung on to it for a dead day — and this would qualify — to talk about it on the blog a little bit more. UNT had 51 players who finished with a 3.0 GPA or better and everyone on the Mean Green’s roster is eligible for the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

  4. For the last two seasons, the man handed the responsibility of carrying the Mean Green offense has been senior quarterback Derek Thompson. That could no longer be the case, as head coach Dan McCarney opened competition at the position this offseason, giving the four eligible quarterbacks on the depth chart the opportunity to compete to start week one when the University of Idaho comes to town. “Even though we started preparing for Idaho earlier this week, we still take about three fourths of the practice to compete and evaluate the position,” McCarney said. “It’s fun to see because the

  6. One of the infamous statements about the state of the UNT football program last season came late in the year when head coach Dan McCarney said that he and his staff didn’t feel comfortable running a nickle package due to the fact the team didn’t have enough defensive backs it was comfortable rolling out there in a game. I bring it up because times have changed. UNT brought in a key cornerback recruit or two and continued to develop a walk-on now on scholarship who is getting a long look in fall practice. We will have a story on that former walk-on in tomorrow’s paper and on our website
  7. Brandon Garner heard from UNT’s coaches on a regular basis up until he committed to Purdue during his junior season. Once he backed out of that pledge, Mean Green’s staff picked up its efforts again and saw them pay off Wednesday afternoon when the Mansfield Timberview linebacker committed to play for the Mean Green. Garner decommitted from Purdue three weeks ago. read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2013/07/brandon-garner-talks-unt.html/
  8. The North Texas Mean Green is a curious oddity when it comes to big time college football in the Dallas area. Nestled in Denton, just north of both Dallas and Forth Worth in one of the biggest recruiting hot beds in the state, and yet, they can’t seem to string together any success. They had some success under head coach Darryl Dickey when they first joined the Sun Belt Conference. But since back to back New Orleans bowls, they have not even been able to have a winning season. This year they are hoping to break the losing trend and capture a winning season. Dan McCarney is heading into his
  9. UNT officials say the additional exposure that television games provide is just one of several ways the move to C-USA will help the program improve. “We will be on TV a lot more than we ever have before and have access to more bowl games,” UNT athletic director Rick Villlarreal said about the benefits of moving to C-USA. “Those are all things that are important to coaches and to players.” UNT spent the last 12 seasons as a member of the Sun Belt Conference. UNT also announced kickoff times for five of its games next season, bringing the total number of game times that have been set t
  10. Micah Thompson – a sophomore offensive linesman for UNT – is happy to be playing Division I football, but he, at 21 years old, has experience that many of his teammates do not understand. From the age of four Thompson was without a father, and relied on his coaches to discipline and teach him. Growing up with a single mother of two rowdy boys, the income was low and food stamps became a way of life for a period of time. But with his mother’s guidance, coaches’ wisdom and wife’s love, he was able to sustain a full-ride football scholarship to UNT and is now fathering his own seven-month
  11. Kidsy had 35 receptions for 400 yards and four touchdowns as a junior, breaking out with 11 touchdowns to go with 669 yards on 33 receptions this past season. He also averaged 33 yards on kickoff returns and 18 yards on punt returns. Kidsy, who plans to study petroleum engineering with a minor in kinesiology, selected North Texas due to a good impression from coach Dan McCarney and the Mean Green’s move to Conference USA in 2013. With his scholarship signed, Kidsy is eager for his future. “It’s a countdown,” Kidsy said. “It’s a grind and I’ve got to stay focused. This isn’t it. Thi
  12. I am down in Miami for the FIU-FIU hoops swing, but I did make a couple of calls on the recruiting front and talked with Omar Tebo, a defensive tackle from Liberty, Texas. Tebo is coming to UNT on an official visit this weekend and said he would like to commit to UNT. The issue is he is a little farther down on UNT’s wish list at this point. Tebo indicated that there is another lineman who is considering an offer from Tulane in front of him on UNT’s recruiting board. UNT only has three scholarships left and several players still on the board. Read more: http://meangreenblog.de
  13. Why should we play North Texas, though?: North Texas is an interesting university to arrange a series with, because although we have played them a number of times in the past we've never shared a conference with the Mean Green. Although it wouldn't have the appeal to the alumni that games against Rice/SMU/Houston and the like, it does have a few perks to it, not the least of it being an easy road trip for fans if the frogs make the trip up to Denton. UNT is located quite near a number of regular high school football powerhouses, and being in the north Texas area is certainly good for business
  14. Craig Robertson almost never left the field when he played football for Stafford High School in suburban Houston. He was a quarterback, running back and go-to wide receiver on third down. He also played defensive back and even served as a punter and place-kicker, too. So which duty was his favorite? “I liked having the ball in my hands really,” Robertson said. Now Robertson is a linebacker for the Browns, and his preference hasn’t changed. His knack for being around the ball has helped him make two interceptions through four games and earn a prominent role as one of two linebackers

  16. Mississippi State score 20 points off of four Troy turnovers in the first half. The Trojans fumbled on their last two possessions of the first quarter and threw interception on their first two possessions of the second quarter. “It’s like I told them at halftime when they decide to protect the football, we’re going to have a good football team,” offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield said. “Bottom line is we’ve coached, we’ve harped, we’ve preached on it. We’re going to play the guys who protect the football.” Troy now hits the road to face North Texas. The Trojans fell to UNT last season
  17. North Texas hits the road again today in the face of long odds against a Kansas State team that, in the estimation of Mean Green coach Dan McCarney, is better than its ranking as the 15th best team in the nation. To compete -- and better yet prepare for a Sun Belt Conference schedule that begins next week -- the coach said, the Mean Green (1-1) will need to match the defensive intensity it displayed in a home-opening victory last week against Texas Southern and find a balance on offense that has remained elusive through the first two weeks of the season. While North Texas running backs B
  18. Kansas State last played North Texas on Nov. 27, 2010 – the final game at Fouts Field in Denton before the Mean Green moved across the interstate to $78 million Apogee Stadium. Here’s Kellis Robinett’s article from the Wildcats’ 49-41 shootout victory, a game notable for Daniel Thomas running for 269 yards and two touchdowns. Several current Wildcats played key roles in that game – safety Ty Zimmerman had one interception, wide receiver Chris Harper scored a touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Carson Coffman and Anthony Cantele handled all seven kickoffs for K-State. Collin Klein had five carri
