  1. I was on TJ Taylor's twitter feed and ran across this... Play Maker ‏@BeGreat_8 My bro @JordonFinch coming to UNT too. That's also another person to add to the UNT-OU connection. Jordon Finch ‏@JordonFinch @BeGreat_8 yessir I dont know much about him and couldn't find his rivals page. According to OU's roster he was a RS Junior so im not sure how much playing time he would have left. Wondered if anyone else knew about this?
  2. Dan McCarney was walking around campus shortly after taking over as North Texas head coach before last season when he ran into one of his star defensive players. Jeremy Phillips was coming off a season in which he won the Byron Gross Award given to the team’s top linebacker and was expected to start for the second straight year. That news just about floored McCarney. “He was 198 pounds,” McCarney said. “I asked him if he played safety and he said, ‘No, I’m a linebacker.’ I told him, ‘You don’t look like it. I hope you play like it.’” Phillips always has played like it, and now looks th

  5. Game: LSU vs. North Texas at Tiger Stadium Date: September 1 at 6 p.m. Television: ESPNU North Texas coach Dan McCarney is quite familiar with his LSU counterpart Les Miles. Both played in the Big Ten Conference at the same time in the 1970s - McCarney at Iowa and Miles at Michigan. Both were head coaches for a four-year stretch in the Big XII Conference in the early 2000s - McCarney at Iowa State and Miles at Oklahoma State. Then, McCarney was an assistant coach at Florida from 2008-10 while Miles was the head coach at LSU. Now, McCarney will begin the second year of his rebuild
  6. After a brief hiatus, I am resuming my post-spring series on key players for UNT heading into the 2012 season. In the wake of the news that came out of Sun Belt Conference media day, Jeremy Phillips has to jump toward the top of the list. Phillips has been a good player for UNT for a long time. The senior has 127 career tackles, including 10.5 for losses, and three interceptions. Phillips was going to be a key player for UNT no matter what. He became even more important when UNT decided to redshirt Mike Stojkovic this season. Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2012/07/ey-pl
  7. They came from across the state, from Lake Travis to Denton, with some considered as top college prospects, like West Mesquite defensive back Will Earley, while others will be fighting for starting spots on their high school team this fall. What they all shared Friday night was a decision to give up one of their last free Friday nights before the beginning of fall practice at high schools across the state to spend a few hours at “Friday Night Lights.” North Texas’ final football camp of the summer attracted approximately 300 players, along with several dozen coaches and parents who watch
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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

  12. 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
  13. 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

  15. 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
  16. 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
