  1. It’s a simple case of cause-and-effect for North Texas quarterback Derek Thompson once he enters Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday. If he can’t show he can throw the ball effectively against No. 15 Kansas State, the Wildcats will, undoubtedly, stack the box on defense. And that could mean trouble for the Mean Green, already four-touchdown underdogs. “I know (Kansas State defensive coordinator) Tom Hayes,” North Texas coach Dan McCarney said. “And he’ll be grinning out the side of his mouth if he sees our passing game isn’t working.” Through two games, the Mean Green’s passing attac
  2. There were not as many bright spots for UNT in its win over TSU in terms of throwing the ball. “DT just misfired on some throws,” McCarney said. “He would be the first one to tell you that. He missed on some throws that he makes every day in seven-on-seven and in situational drills. He has made those throws countless times when we were open.” One way in which UNT will look to adjust this week is finding a way to get Chancellor more involved in the offense again. The junior had four catches for 114 yards against LSU but didn’t have a reception against TSU. McCarney said that UNT’s coach
  3. North Texas is 1-1, losing at LSU and beating Texas Southern. “As I've said to our players,” Snyder said, “it wasn't about Miami, it's not about North Texas and it's not about anybody we play in the future. It's all about our youngsters, our coaches, our team and what we do day in and day out in prepration. “It really is about us. If we don't make the whole-hearted investment to become a better football team now and down the road, then you have no chance. The bottom line is if you play poorly against North Texas, you lose. If you play poorly against Miami, you lose. If you play poorly ag

  5. First Impressions -- That wasn't so bad, was it? Sure, a 41-14 box score isn't getting printed out and placed on anyone's refrigerator with a gold star, but things could have gone a lot worse. -- Warning: excuse alert. The final score wasn't really indicative of the game itself. -- Speaking of gold stars, can we get one for defensive back Hilbert Jackson? That guy sent LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger into another dimension, and Mettenberger isn't a shrimp either. YouTube the sack now. We'll wait. -- There were reasons to be happy with NT's defensive effort (more on why later because s
  6. Before the Mean Green plays its first home game against Texas Southern on Saturday, you’ll need to know what to expect and who you’ll see out on the field. The NT Daily Sports staff has compiled a detailed scouting report of the team. Here’s a breakdown of the entire team by position, along with one notable quote from a player who plays that position. Quarterback, Wide Receiver, Tight End Redshirt junior quarterback Derek Thompson now has the experience of a full slate of games under his belt heading into this season. Even though the running game carried the brunt of the load last year, Th
  7. If you look at our first possession of the game it really speaks volumes. We start with a decent 3 yard gain up the middle from DirtyByrd. Then TE Andy Power - who looked like he was double teamed - drops a ball in his hands. Next Ivan DelGado drops a pass in his hands on the sideline. Next we have a penalty on the punt, Atterbury has a shank on the second and there's about a 30-yard gift of field position present we hand LSU. LSU's block in the back helps negate that. The big running play to LSU's Albert Blue sort of broke things wide open. LSU took UNT Nosetackle Tevin Cantly from the
  8. McCarney said he expects LSU to give Mettenberger a chance to show what he can do for a variety of reasons, including North Texas' own lack of experience at cornerback. ''What we're trying to do right now is be ready for what we keep hearing, which is they're going to be throwing the ball deep,'' McCarney said. ''They're going to take shots. Why wouldn't you? ... Both of our starting corners right now have never started a game.'' Still, Miles has said he won't veer too far from his run-first philosophy, and McCarney believes him. ''The things you never get away from at LSU is the (phy
  9. Saturday's football game between No. 3 LSU and North Texas is still scheduled as of now for 6 p.m. at Tiger Stadium. North Texas Senior Associate Athletic Director Eric Capper said the North Texas athletic department has been in constant contact with LSU. Capper said the Mean Green are scheduled to fly into Baton Rouge on Friday afternoon, but that could change depending on the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac. If the game were to be moved, Capper said LSU would be the side to initiate rescheduling discussions. "Any talks as far as canceling or rescheduling the game are premature at th

  11. Here is what I am reading through the tea leaves in terms of guys UNT is saying should make an impact: Antoinne Jimmerson (RS Frosh at RB) - Heads into the season as the #1 running back to replace all time leading rusher Lance Dunbar. Possesses all around skills and is willing to hit the inside holes with power which has endeared him to the coaching staff. Carlos Harris True Frosh WR/Special Teams - Probably has received the most accolades of all of the true freshman class. Looks like he will be an immediate impact player not only at WR but on special teams. Lack of depth at WR helps

  13. Go ahead and cast your vote on how North Texas does in the 2012 Football Season! We are going to pin this up top so that end of season we can see who was correct.
  14. There was a time a few years ago when it appeared as if Coleman Feeley would make a run at the rare distinction of being a four-year starter at North Texas. Feeley was thrust into the Mean Green’s lineup early in his freshman year and started the final seven games of the season. That stretch remains the highlight of Feeley’s time at UNT heading into his senior year this fall, when he will have one last chance to become a staple in the Mean Green’s lineup. UNT has four returning starters who have locked up jobs on its offensive front, leaving only one tackle spot up for grabs. Feeley an
