  1. MURFREESBORO MTSU athletics director Chris Massaro admits the expansive football television package this season is a double-edged sword. Always a battle to put people in the seats at Floyd Stadium, the Blue Raiders have become somewhat of their own competition, considering fans can sit at home in front of high-definition TV sets with little effort and catch the games. It's not just the constant battle of MTSU and Conference USA, which provides its members one, if not the, best television packages for mid-major conferences. From the NFL to the SEC, teams are fighting diminishing home atten
  2. Jeffery Wilson, a running back from Elkhart, left for home from Denton following his official visit this morning, and while I have yet to get him on the line, it appears that he has committed to UNT.

  3. UNT fans will be talking about the Mean Green’s win over UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl for years. The win — and the Mean Green’s breakout season in general — changed the course of the program. We will share our thoughts on how over the next few weeks/months. Before we do, we ought to stop to consider the legacy of UNT’s senior class. We wrote about it quite a bit in the days leading up to the Heart of Dallas Bowl and in the wake of UNT’s win in the paper. What we haven’t done is talk about it much on the blog — a place where we can be a little more opinionated. Read more
  4. 3. Underdogs making noise Baylor and Duke followed a Stanford-like path from nothingness to national relevance, with Baylor taking its first Big 12 title with an 11-1 finish and Duke cracking the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll on the road to the ACC Coastal Division title. Along with this pair, another handful of overlooked FBS programs had banner seasons. Ball State coach Pete Lembo led the Cardinals to 10 wins for the third time in program history. Missouri went from the SEC's forgotten team to the conference title game. Buffalo went 8-4, coming within a win of a spot in the MAC championshi
  5. 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.

  6. University of North Texas leaders say they've long toyed with the idea of adding beer vendors to Apogee Stadium and other campus venues. Like many college sports venues across the country, no alcohol is allowed in the Mean Green's football stadium. But Athletic Director Rick Villarreal said it's been an ongoing discussion. He said he has watched closely as other venues tackle the topic. "It's a trend that we've watched across country," he said. "We've seen that increasingly happen in stadium settings." Villarreal said there are some real benefits to beer sales, such as new profits. But
  7. With a promising football team that is not built on balsa wood; a long needed baseball program nearing launch; outstanding facilities and a new conference that offers us in state and regional rivalries I really think we may be there. I realize that as Coach Mac will say the 24-hours since the Rice win has past but it's hard not to sense the momentum building around athletics and specifically this Mean Green football program. Look at the Goose article, comments from Dewey Scruggs and Babe Laufenberg...the media seems ready to join us at the altar. Yes the early 2000's were great years
  8. They have us sandwiched between Tcu and Smu.... 8. North Texas (4-3, 2-1, next game Saturday @ Southern Miss) — The Mean Green are playing like a bowl-bound squad after claiming a comeback victory at Louisiana Tech. It was UNT’s first streak of winning back-to-back games since the 2004 New Orleans Bowl, a streak of 0-26 following previous victories. Coach Dan McCarney’s team snapped a seven-game road losing streak with a strong defensive effort with four turnovers produced. And 0-6 Southern Miss looms after the Golden Eagles’ 55-14 loss at East Carolina on Saturday. read more: http://
  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

  11. First off - tip of the hat to the players, coaches everyone from the game last night. They never gave up and despite the mistakes kept fighting and gave us a chance to win in the 4th quarter against a good team. It's never easy to win on the road and against a team like Ohio it's even tougher. There is no denying the effort is there. This is not meant as criticism more as just an observation after 2 weeks. Here's the problem we have as I see it. DT has a lot of positive aspects to his game and he's a hard worker and leader but he is NOT a running threat. We have a good offensive line
  12. North Texas football coach Dan McCarney couldn’t remember a night quite like the one the Mean Green put together Saturday in a win over Idaho — at least not when it comes to special teams performance. UNT came up with its best outing in more than a year returning punts and was solid in every other special teams facet except for kicking extra points. The Mean Green missed two, but even that major concern couldn’t completely spoil a performance that marked a step forward for UNT heading into a game Saturday at Ohio. “Our kicking game was better on Saturday than it has been the first 22 g
  13. DENTON, Texas - Derek Thompson has spent two years fending off challengers for the Mean Green starting quarterback position, but his performance in Saturday night's 40-6 season-opening win over Idaho did nothing to diminish his grip on the job. On a blisteringly hot night at Apogee Stadium, Thompson was efficient and accurate, completing his first seven passes, 12 of 15 in the first half, and 23 of 27 for the game for a career-high 349 yards and two touchdowns. He connected with eight different receivers, did not suffer an interception, and directed the North Texas offense to 40 unanswered
  14. It's interesting to see the comments on the board after a big opener win against Idaho. The emotions range from elation to uncomfortable to even paranoia. You can tell we're not used to winning games like this. It's like this great suit that we never wore before that everyone loves but we aren't used to wearing. It was interesting on Mac's radio show, Jub asked him about the improvement at defensive end hoping for players to be named and he wouldn't or couldn't give a specific player response. He sort of made some general statements and reiterated that John Skladany was doing a great j
  15. The University of North Texas Mean Green have flipped the script of previous seasons. Heading in to its matchup against the University of Ohio, UNT is coming off one of the biggest victories margins since head coach Dan McCarney took over two years ago. McCarney has taken on big events and celebrations since joining the Mean Green including the opening of Apogee Stadium, entrance into Conference USA and the 100-year celebration of the UNT football program all in his short stay with the team. A 40-6 victory over the University of Idaho Vandals this past Saturday is an indication that th
  16. No more than two years ago, North Texas football coach Dan McCarney was tossed into an overwhelming mess. In many ways, its the same kind of mess that Idaho coach Paul Petrino finds himself in a day before his inaugural game as a collegiate head coach. McCarneys first season as coach of the Mean Green came after four seasons of utter disappointment, when UNT combined to go 8-40. Petrinos situation isnt nearly as desperate, yet the stakes are just as high. Read more: http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/hbo/2013/aug/30/petrino-leads-ui-against-north-texas/
  17. The 2013 football season is one of the biggest years in the University of North Texas football program’s history. This year, UNT is celebrating 100 years of football, starting its first year in Conference USA, opening the season at home for the first time in 12 years and playing four of its 12 games on national television. Not to mention, for the first time in head coach Dan McCarney’s three-year stint, the UNT program has 85 scholarship players. “We have to take advantage of the opportunities that are out there because nobody is going to hand you anything,” McCarney said. “It’s re

  19. North Texas When: Saturday, Oct. 12 (Time TBA). Where: Denton, Texas. TV: TBA. Radio: 100.5 FM, 102.5 FM, 89.5 FM. Series: UNT 7-5. Last meeting: MTSU 38-21 (2012). If theres a trap game on MTSUs schedule, this has the potential to be it. A week earlier, East Division power ECU comes to Murfreesboro for a highly anticipated game. And after this game, a bye week and an equally hyped home matchup with East Division contender Marshall awaits. North Texas likely will not jump off the page on anyones schedule, but the Mean Green should be solid and balanced. UNT will be coming off its first ever

  21. 2012 SEASON IN REVIEW: Since posting an 8-5 record in 2009 and making it to the postseason, the Vandals have been nowhere near as strong. In fact, Idaho has won a total of just nine games in the three seasons since earning that rare bowl bid which turned into a 43-42 victory over a pesky Bowling Green group. The squad closed out the 2011 campaign with three straight setbacks and the defeats just kept on coming in 2012 as well, with five more loses before the program logged a 26-18 win over a New Mexico State team that lost 11 in a row to finish out the season. Unfortunately for the Vandals
  22. 2012 SEASON IN REVIEW: Although it won four straight league titles upon entering, North Texas did not have a gracious exit from the Sun Belt Conference. The Mean Green played a very tough non-conference schedule and won one less game than in 2011. Coach Dan McCarney took the Cyclones to the bowl season in five of his final seven seasons at Iowa State. He has compiled a 9-15 record in two years with the Mean Green. North Texas began its season with a lopsided, 41-14 loss at LSU. It downed Texas State, 34-7, the following week to climb back to the .500 mark. The Mean Green then lost two in a

North Texas Walk-Ons Continue Making The Most Of Their Opportunities Inside the North Texas football offices, the hallways are decorated with pictures of big hits, big plays and special players. Zach Orr, Brandin Byrd, Derek Thompson and other highly-decorated players and highly-sought recruits. When you wind your way around the hallway before heading out, there is a wall with 18 mug shots in a line. This group of 18 players isn't your usual lineup. It's guys who were told out of high school they were not good enough to play FBS football. It's the 18 players that have earned scholarships at N
