  1. Another not-hard-hitting piece from the beat on Bonnie Brae street... Vito. You'd think Brett was scared they would lock him out of the Athletic Center if he wrote anything too mean.
  2. Denton Record-Chronicle journalists won a combined 15 awards for their work during 2020 in honors announced Tuesday afternoon by the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors. Reporters, editors and photographers were judged against their peers at all newspapers in the state with a circulation under 10,000. Veteran sports reporter Brett Vito won first place in Deadline Writing for his coverage of the resignation of former University of North Texas assistant football coach Tate Wallis. He also earned first place in Feature Series for his coverage of how UNT’s athletics program had been navigating the pandemic, and fellow reporter Marshall Reid won third in the same category for his series that profiled area students and their own struggles amid the pandemic. read more: https://dentonrc.com/news/record-chronicle-wins-15-state-journalism-awards/article_97a892f0-624b-5f75-9720-d4841529ac7b.html
  3. This is the kind of hor$hit WB and the AD Dept has to deal with in regards to the Denton Record Chronicle. Our softball team and it’s new coach Rodney DeLong traveled last Friday to College Station and kicked ass. They went 4-1 overall in the Aggie Classic that included a run-rule curb stomping Saturday of the host and 20th ranked A&M team 10-2, our first win over a ranked team in three seasons. We won 9-0 over UNC and won 8-7 in an extra inning marathon (12) over Cal Baptist Friday evening. We then run ruled A&M Saturday afternoon then lost by 1 in extra innings (9) Saturday evening to Cal Baptist. Then we run ruled Northern Colorado 8-2 Sunday morning. So what do the morons at the DRC put accross the top of the sports page this morning? They print a headline teaser across the top of the sports page that UNT Softball “lose in tourneys”. No DUMBASSES!!! North Texas WINS in tourneys! North Texas outscored their opponents 40-17. North Texas won Sunday’s game and went 4-1 in the tournament and kicked the crap out of the ranked team. And yeah, I know it’s the printed version and not online. Despite what you may think or say a lot of potential donors/season ticket holders/supporters of NT Athletics still read the print paper.....but that’s completely beside the point here. It’s the mindset and the negative attitude this paper has always had and always will as long as the Patterson (Ok State Alumni) family runs it. North Texas spends a lot of money advertising in that POS rag. North Texas is Denton’s largest employer. You’d think the days of the constant little negative jabs and back stabbing would be over? It’s not. Effing pisses me off man!!! Rick

  5. The Denton Record-Chronicle is going to be locally owned again. Bill Patterson, the longtime publisher of the Record-Chronicle, is purchasing the paper from A. H. Belo Corp., which has owned the publication since 1999. The sale will be completed by the end of the year, he announced Tuesday afternoon. "I think there's a great opportunity in Denton," Patterson said. "I feel strongly that Denton needs a daily newspaper and robust and trusted digital portfolio, and I believe we can be productive and grow." The decision to buy came after Patterson and leaders at A. H. Belo realized the solutions to problems at The Dallas Morning News, the flagship publication of A.H. Belo, wouldn't necessarily work at a smaller paper like the Record-Chronicle, Patterson said. Grant Moise, executive vice president of A. H. Belo, reiterated that the paths forward for the two papers weren't the same. So the split makes sense, he said. The two companies will continue to work together after the split, Moise said. The newspaper will still be printed and distributed through Belo, and The News and the Record-Chronicle will continue to share content. "The real difference will be in the ownership structure, and Bill and the DRC team will have real, true autonomy and independence over the strategic decisions they make in the future," Moise said. "We're excited we're going to remain business partners with the DRC, and I hope we'll be able to play a meaningful part of their future, just in a different way." read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/news/news/2017/10/31/longtime-publisher-buying-denton-record-chronicle-ah-belo
  6. UNT athletic director Rick Villarreal will receive a base salary of $275,000 with an annual $100,000 retention bonus and a $7,200 car allowance beginning on Sept. 1, 2013, under terms of his new contract that will run through Feb. 28, 2017. Villarreal will receive a $250,000 base salary and a $50,000 retention bonus for the school year beginning on Sept. 1. His salary from March 1 to Aug. 31 will be $228,000, a prorated portion of his base pay. The last of Villarreal’s three scheduled $100,000 bonuses during the term of the contract will be paid on Sept. 1, 2015. The contract also includes performance incentives for both academic success and seasons in which UNT’s teams win conference titles or reach the postseason.

  7. “We are really excited about the upcoming season,” Benford said. “I feel like the nonconference schedule we have prepared will have us ready for a demanding Conference USA season. Playing in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic will pit us against four tough teams starting with Oklahoma, and we will also make trips to BYU and Texas A&M. Looking around our league, our schedule is comparable to most of the teams in C-USA, and we feel it’s a schedule that our fans will really enjoy.” Read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/sports/sports-headlines/20130912-mens-basketball-unt-finalizes-2013-14-schedule.ece
  8. A few days before North Texas took on UTEP on Saturday, head coach Dan McCarney talked about how much he liked the way the end of the Mean Green’s season was set up. UNT had a little extra time to prepare for its game against the Miners after a Thursday night win over Rice and now will have a whole extra week to take a breather before its game against Texas-San Antonio on Nov. 23. McCarney has emphasized all season that bye weeks are not off weeks. UNT will try to get a lot done in the next few days while trying to heal from nagging injuries. The Mean Green’s players echoed their coach’s sentiments Monday, when they began to capitalize on their open week. “This is going to be good for us,” wide receiver Brelan Chancellor said. “This will give our bodies time to recover.” UNT had several players nursing injuries after its win over UTEP, including wide receiver Darnell Smith and running back Rex Rollins. Chancellor and linebacker Zach Orr said the recovery time this week allows will be critical for the Mean Green.

  9. UNT rallies from 18 down to beat Ball State By Brett Vito / Staff Writer Published: 14 September 2013 11:49 PM Derek Thompson came up holding his right hand after a push from a Ball State player sent him sailing over the North Texas bench and out of the game Saturday at Apogee Stadium. Fortunately for the Mean Green, the senior quarterback was able to get up off the deck and help UNT do the same in a 34-27 come-from-behind win over the Cardinals. The Mean Green had a grand opportunity in its second home game of the season to reach a host of milestones and take a big step toward the six-win mark that is its stated baseline goal for this season. That opportunity appeared to be slipping away after UNT got off to a horrible start and trailed 27-9 in the second quarter. There were several players who helped the Mean Green recover, from hard-hitting safety Marcus Trice to Zach Orr, the anchor of UNT’s defense. Just don’t forget Thompson, who scored the game-winning touchdown to cap a run of 25 UNT points to close the game after his ill-fated flop over the bench. The resolve Thompson and the Mean Green showed while recovering from some down times gave UNT a 2-1 start — its best since it resumed playing in the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1995. “This is a great win for our program,” UNT coach Dan McCarney said. “We showed great resolve, heart and courage. When you dig a hole like we did for ourselves, it’s hard. But we were able to make enough big plays.” Thompson made several while throwing for 274 yards against the Cardinals (2-1). The former Glen Rose standout isn’t known for his speed but scored the winning touchdown on a 26-yard run. Thompson made that play after safety Martez Hester shoved him out of bounds on the UNT sideline, sending him over the Mean Green’s bench. “My thumb locked up on me and started cramping,” Thompson said. “I wasn’t sure what was wrong. I couldn’t move my thumb, which scared me a little.” Thompson quickly recovered and returned to finish a solid performance, one UNT needed after falling behind.

  10. http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2013/09/sunday-night-weekend-in-review.html/ I guess I know why I didn't see Loving vs Ohio. A kid with a Kansas State offer can't crack our 4 deep ? What gives ? No TE receptions after 2 games
  11. We are headed toward the beginning of a new season when it comes to UNT football. For those of us on the sports staff here at the DRC, it feels more like we have crossed the finish line. Our football preview magazine will be in the paper tomorrow. This year’s edition is 120 pages and there isn’t an iota of non-local content in it. None. I know. I designed every single page with content (those not taken up completely with ads) in the whole thing. Granted, this is a UNT blog followed by a lot of readers who are interested only in the Mean Green. Even when one takes that into account, there are still around 30 pages of straight UNT in there.

  12. UNT’s summer camp circuit has already paid dividends in the form of early commitments from DeSoto defensive tackle Shaquel Jackson and defensive end Johnavhon Grahm. UNT made stops in Duncanville, Arlington and Katy, among other cities. UNT head coach Dan McCarney said before he and his staff began their statewide tour that the effort they made over previous summers has helped improve the team’s talent level. That improvement has paid dividends on the field, where UNT has won nine games in McCarney’s first two seasons, exceeding the eight total wins the Mean Green posted the previous four years combined. “We have more guys who can play Division I and play on Sundays,” McCarney said. “We have more guys who want to take a look, and when they do, we have a shot.” UNT has lined up another shot to make an impression on some of the players it is targeting the class of 2014 this week, when the lights at Apogee will shine a day early.

  13. Tulsa was a unanimous pick to win the West Division, while East Carolina was picked to win the East Division. We know that we have our work cut out for us heading into a new league, and we have a lot to prove against some great teams that are in our division and our league, UNT head coach Dan McCarney said in a statement. The last time UNT did not have a player named to a preseason all-conference team was in 2009, when the Mean Green played in the Sun Belt Conference. UNT left that league after last season to join C-USA. McCarney and UNTs players have spoken about the importance of playing well in their first season in a new conference throughout the offseason. They are not going to shut the program down if we dont win, but this is a big year for us, UNT quarterback Derek Thompson said. There are a lot of guys who are ready to help turn things and have a really successful year. We are prepared for it.

  14. Former North Texas standout Tony Mitchell sat in the seats at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night, waiting to carve out a niche in Mean Green history at the NBA draft. Mitchell did just that. He just had to wait a lot longer than most analysts projected. Mitchell was expected to be selected in the first round, but he slid all the way to the seventh pick of the second round, where the Detroit Pistons snapped him up. Despite dropping into the second round, Mitchell, a 6-9 forward, was selected higher than any player in UNT history. Kenneth Lyons was the 23rd pick of the second round in the 1983 draft and was UNT’s highest selection before Mitchell. John Horrocks was picked by the Mavericks in the fourth round of the 1984 draft and was the last UNT player selected before Mitchell, who was accompanied to the draft by head coach Tony Benford. Mitchell’s teammates, UNT fans and the team’s assistant coaches gathered at Treehouse Bar & Grill in Denton to watch the draft on television.

  15. UNT coach Dan McCarney said that he has been pleased with the Mean Green’s progress in spring practice during his spring wrap-up press conference Tuesday. UNT will hold its annual spring game at 2 p.m. Saturday at Apogee Stadium. “If you really get good at fundamentals and learn the system so that you can play with confidence and then master things that take no talent whatsoever — that is effort, that is toughness and that is the ability to communicate with your coaches and teammates — that is a really good start for 2013,” McCarney said. “We have done a good job of that. I really like where we are at right now.” While McCarney was pleased with UNT’s progress in general, he did single out a few players who performed particularly well, including defensive end Chad Polk and cornerback Kenny Buyers.

  17. MONROE, La. — Louisiana-Monroe was about as far down as a college basketball team could be heading into its game against North Texas on Thursday. The Warhawks had lost nine straight and had dropped each of their last three games by at least 10 points. ULM came out of its funk against the Mean Green — not for long, a half at best — and handed UNT a second devastating loss this season. UNT was up 15 early in the second half, only to see ULM get on a roll and run away for an 85-73 win at Fant-Ewing Coliseum. ULM (4-17, 3-12 Sun Belt) has won just four games all season, with two of them coming against the Mean Green (9-18, 4-12). “That last 15 minutes, we played some of the worst basketball we have played all season,” UNT forward Roger Franklin said. “We had them down 15 and let them score 50 points in 15 minutes. We had them down and needed to step on their neck and chose not to. Since we didn’t put them away, they came back and hit us and we couldn’t do anything about it.” ULM entered the night averaging just 59.9 points per game, a total that ranked last in the Sun Belt Conference, and had surpassed the 80-point mark just once this season — in an 81-68 win over the Mean Green. Amos Olatayo led ULM with 22 points. Millaun Brown, who came into the night averaging 5.6 points a game, added 21 and Trent Mackey 18 for the Warhawks. “We scored enough points, but defensively we were terrible,” UNT coach Tony Benford said. “It was our worst defensive night of the year.

  18. With key players from last season graduating, the Mean Green will need certain players to step up if it wants to contend in the Sun Belt this season. It is worth noting what players will be missed and what players can be expected to step up and contribute in their place. WHO WILL BE MISSED: Lance Dunbar – Running Back Dunbar set the university’s all-time rushing record with 4,224 yards, recorded 49 career touchdowns with the Mean Green and was one of six players in NCAA history to have 4,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in a career. The gutsiest performance of Dunbar’s career came in his final game with the team. In a rain-drenched 59-7 win against Middle Tennessee, Dunbar rushed 40 times for 313 yards, setting the UNT and Sun Belt record for most rushing yards in a single game. After going undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft, Dunbar signed with the Dallas Cowboys and is trying to make the team as a third or fourth string running back. Read more: http://www.ntdaily.com/?p=67667
  19. 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 lost to a season-ending injury. The number that sticks out is that UNT ranked last in the Sun Belt in passing defense with an average of 265.8 yards allowed a game on the season. There is no doubt UNT had its problems in the back end. I just wonder how much of them were directly attributable to the cornerback spot. Some of them? For sure. The whole problem? Probably not, especially if you take a closer look at the team. UNT was torched by Houston’s Case Keenum, Tulsa’s G.J. Kinne and Arkansas State’s Ryan Aplin, three really good college quarterbacks. But when it came to Sun Belt Conference play, UNT actually ranked third in pass defense with 215.0 yards allowed a game.

  20. North Texas standout Tony Mitchell tuned up for his freshman season by playing in the FIBA U-19 World Championships a year ago. Arthur Casimiro, one of the players he faced during the tournament, decided to follow the path Mitchell blazed to Denton on Wednesday. The 6-10 center committed to UNT after visiting the school. He will play the upcoming season at San Bernardino (Calif.) Community College and then have two seasons of eligibility remaining. Casimiro is a member of the Brazilian national team. Oral commitments are non-binding. The first day recruits in the class of 2013 can sign national letters of intent is Nov. 14, the first day of the early-signing period. “I looked at the program and really liked it,” Casimiro said Wednesday. “I really liked it.” Read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/sports/colleges/north-texas-headlines/20120711-men-s-basketball-unt-gets-commitment-from-6-10-brazilian-center.ece

  22. Cody Nelson felt like he was at the top of North Texas’ wish list when it came to offensive line prospects this summer. That made a big impression on the Keller tackle, who orally committed to UNT late Monday. Nelson had just one offer, from UNT, but said he was told by coaches at Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech that he could receive offers from them if he attended their summer camps. Nelson decided to go with the team that wanted him most. “The coaches at North Texas followed me the whole time and showed that they really wanted me,” Nelson said. “I wasn’t a backup plan in case someone else didn’t commit. I felt like I was a Plan B guy with some of the other schools.” Nelson (6-5, 270 pounds) played both right and left tackle for Keller. UNT safeties coach Noah Joseph recruited Nelson, who is projected to remain at tackle. Oral commitments are nonbinding. The first day recruits in the class of 2013 can sign national letters of intent is Feb. 6. Kevin Atkinson, the new head coach at Denton, coached Nelson at Keller before taking over the Broncos’ program early this year. He has known Nelson since he was playing in the Keller youth leagues and says he believes he will develop into a solid college lineman.

  24. One topic that I have been meaning to get to over the last few days, but haven’t had a chance to is where UNT stands as far as quarterbacks go moving forward following Brock Berglund’s decision to attend junior college. If you have not been following along, Berglund is the former Kansas quarterback who visited UNT and later decided to go to Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College, due largely to an NCAA ruling that would have forced him to sit a year and pay his own way if he enrolled at another FBS school. Point being, Berglund was high on UNT’s wish list in a year this team absolutely has to sign a quarterback. That was Dan McCarney’s take on national signing day in February. And it’s not too hard to see why. UNT didn’t sign a quarterback in its 2012 class. UNT signed three in 2011, but Cooper Jones has since moved to tight end and Brent Osborn was a JUCO transfer who will be a junior in the fall.
