  1. Yeah it's been awhile. Like about a decade. From what I can tell the last time we started the season 3-3 was in 2003 under Darrell Dickey. We lost at OU 37-3 We beat Baylor at home 52-14 We lost at Air Force 34-21 We lost at Arkansas 31-7 We beat ULL at home 44-23 We beat Idaho on the road 24-14 We went on after that to win 6 straight games in the Sun Belt for a 9-3 regular season record before losing to Memphis in The New Orleans Bowl 27-17. So we ended the 2003 season 9-4. Could history repeat? GMG
  2. When we last left Conference USA — or at least talked about how the league might shape up a few weeks ago — there were a few safe assumptions one could make. Rice, which won five of its last six and then beat Air Force in the Armed Forces Bowl a year ago, would be pretty darn good after returning nearly all of its key players. Tulsa would be at the top of the league just like it always is. Louisiana Tech lost pretty much everyone, including head coach Sonny Dykes to Cal, but has a recent history of success and didn’t seem to be headed for much of a drop-off. And UNT? The Mean Green wa
  3. Mac is 3-2 in games where UNT has had more than 7 days to prepare... In 2011 we lost to Houston 9 days after a Thursday night loss against FIU on the road... In 2011 we defeated Troy on the road after a 14-day layoff with an open week after losing to Ark St. on the road In 2011 We busted up MUTS at home 14-days after a WKU loss at home... In 2012 we won against ULL at home after a 10-day layoff after losing to Houston on the road In 2012 we lost to MUTS on the road after an 11 day layoff after the Tuesday night ULL win at home...
  4. I’m back in town after a quick night and an early return flight from UNT’s loss to Ohio. Here are a few thoughts. First a few quick-hitters: – Ohio really shut down UNT’s running game, limiting the Mean Green to 104 yards on 38 carries, an average of 2.7 yards a pop. UNT’s longest run from a running back was 10 yards. Considering the running game is supposed to be a strength, that has to be a concern going forward. – One has to wonder if the book isn’t out on UNT offensively, especially after Ohio limited Brelan Chancellor to one catch for 33 yards. Take Chancellor away, stack the
  5. Offense: A strong, punishing running game that keeps defenses honest. A passing game that throws on first down. A tight end and two receivers other than Chancellor emerge. Quarterback depth is developed so we aren't starting from scratch after DT graduates. Defense: Better outcomes in 3rd and long situations. More sacks. Giving up big passing plays that are earned not just due to coverage errors. A new defensive end and tackle emerge. Take a few chances with the blitz versus allowing long sustained drives which can be demoralizing. Special teams: Better overall athleticism.
  6. I just don't get it. Berglund is a great athlete with a quick release, gun arm and wheels. He's absolutely picture perfect for what Mac and Chico wants. I understand he lost reps in the spring. But not a mention of him this Fall....? From everything I've read he seems like a very good kid, respectful to his coaches and teammates...hard worker...motivated... In the spring game he got limited reps but showed remarkable speed and arm strength... And yet from Vito's latest report he is running third team and splitting time with a true freshman? Perhaps he is not a great practice playe
  7. North Texas knows exactly what it has heading into the season with Brelan Chancellor. The senior is about as proven as a player can be at the college level after three seasons of highlight-reel catches and consistent production that has put him at the top of the scouting report for all of the Mean Green’s opponents. The concern for UNT heading into its Aug. 31 season opener against Idaho isn’t Chancellor — it’s the wide receivers the Mean Green is depending on to complement him. What wide receivers coach Mike Grant has seen during a little more than a week in fall practice has him
  8. NT wrapped up its first week of camp with its first scrimmage on Saturday. Practice is closed except for the first few minutes when media members can come in and grab a little video or shoot photos. Scrimmages are closed as well, which makes it tough to draw any hard-and-fast conclusions about how UNT is faring. We are essentially relying on the word of the coaches and players. With that being said, there were some interesting developments over the first six days of workouts: The quarterback race is still wide open for competition. Derek Thompson, Brock Berglund and Andrew McNulty (i
  9. Throwback Uniform to be Revealed at Football Media Day Monday DENTON, Texas – In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of Mean Green football, North Texas will unveil a special throwback uniform at its annual media day Monday, Aug. 12. North Texas will wear the commemorative uniform in its season-opener against Idaho Aug. 31 at Apogee Stadium. The throwback uniform will represent some of the most successful eras in North Texas football history. The uniforms are also a component of the 100-year celebration, which included the naming of the All-Century team. Head C
  10. The purpose of this article is not to look at the guys who everyone in Denton will be talking about in UNT 2013 Fall Camp leading to their first season in Conference USA. Those guys are - of course - Brelan Chancellor, Derek Thompson, Brock Berglund, Darius Terrell, Darvin Kidsey, Reggie Pegram, etc... Rather, I would like to focus in on a few of the guys who may not be in the bright spotlight but could very well have a big impact on the success of the program now and in future years. Some are new and some have been around for awhile. This list is certainly not all inclusive. In scanning
  11. UNTs players report for the beginning of fall camp tomorrow with practice and media day to follow on Monday. We have been talking about how UNTs roster shapes up and some of the key issues the Mean Green faces heading into the fall since the end of spring practice. There is a feeling around UNT that this could be the year the Mean Green turns it around, and that maybe its UNTs last good chance to turn it around after eight straight losing seasons. With so many seniors in key spots, its easy to see why. And that does not even take into account the one-time chance to get off on the right foo
  12. We began a blog series this week looking at some of the key games in UNTs 2013 season. There are a host of games that could make or break the Mean Greens year, just like there is in any season. We started out with UNTs game against UTSA, or as we have decided to call it, the UNT-Fans-Wing-Zone-Green-Koolaid-Suicide-Pact game. We fear a host of UNT fans will gather in the stands at Apogee and elect to leave this mortal coil if the Mean Green (celebrating year 100 of its football program) falls to UTSA (celebrating year three of its football program). That brings us to No. 2 in our count
  13. Introduction: It's an end of an era. The Western Athletic Conference ceases to exist in terms of college football after the 2012 season. The 1-11, 1-5 Idaho Vandals, one of the last survivors, has become the latest to join the likes of Army, Brigham Young, Navy and Notre Dame as an Independent. Offense: Change is inevitable and Idaho hopes that truism is very much evident in 2013 when the Vandals take a 123rd points in offense and 122nd points in defense to the line of scrimmage. An 84th strength of schedule coupled with new coach Paul Petrino, brother of Bobby, and seven returning offen
