  1. OK so keeping in mind I was extremely pleased with how hard the team played on Saturday here are a couple of the things that I would like to see improve: -- Our secondary has to get better at making plays on the ball. I think we are often times in position and just don't make a play on the ball. Whitfield catches a lot of the heat for this but you could apply it to every guy out there. If I am Ryan Walters I spend less time on getting into position and focus more time in practice on making plays on the ball in the air through technique and reading the wide receivers eyes etc. This ty
  2. ATHENS, GEORGIA -- Forget all that cupcake talk or thinking Saturdays game was merely a tune-up for next weeks showdown with No. 6 LSU. Georgia's season at one time looked dangerously close to being on the brink early in the third quarter against North Texas. Yes, North Texas. The Mean Green tied the No. 9 Bulldogs by recovering a blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown 43 seconds into the third quarter, Georgias second major special teams disaster of the day. Georgia already had surrendered a 99-yard kickoff return for touchdown in the second quarter. The Bulldogs (2-1) survived all
  3. CB: Akron almost upset Michigan last weekend. Does that instill belief that a North Texas can beat Georgia, since we just saw a mid-major almost bring down a BCS program? TC: Nothing's impossible and this is the deepest, most talented team for UNT since its run of four straight bowl games in 2001 to 2004. But no, my best case scenario is to keep it competitive in the first half and to not lose by more than a couple touchdowns. Beating Georgia just doesn't seem probable. CB: North Texas joined Conference-USA this season. How well do you think North Texas will do in its new conference?

  5. ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No. 9 Georgia to a 45-21 victory over pesky North Texas on Saturday. Murray overcame an early interception in the end zone, hooking up with freshman Reggie Davis on a 98-yard TD — the longest pass play in school history. Arthur Lynch and Chris Conley also had touchdown catches for the Bulldogs (2-1). The Mean Green (2-2) came in as a 33-point underdog, but big plays on special teams helped make a game of it. Brelan Chancellor returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and Zac Whit
  6. ATHENS, Ga.----After being criticized often in No. 9 Georgia’s first two games the Bulldogs’ (2-1, 1-0 SEC) defense had a point to make in Saturday’s 45-21 defeat of North Texas. While the score may not reflect the Bulldogs defensive dominance a deeper look in the statistics shows how impressive Georgia was. The Bulldog D conceded just seven points while giving up only 245 yards including just seven yard rushing. The Bulldog also collected their first interception of the year when freshman safety Tray Matthews picked off Mean Green quarterback Derek Thompson in the third quarter. “Co
  7. We couldn't run the ball. Anyone hear what it was? Hope he's back by Tulane!
  8. WOW what a great gutty performance from the Mean Green!!! We got a shot!!! GO MEAN GREEN!!

  10. Georgia's first game against an unranked opponent sure wasn't as easy as the final score made it appear. The ninth-ranked Bulldogs had last week off after opening the season with a loss to Clemson and a win over South Carolina, both top-10 programs, but it took a strong second half Saturday to pull away for a 45-21 win over North Texas at Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs, possibly eyeing next week's showdown with LSU, led only 21-14 at the break. Things got worse almost immediately when Georgia went three-and-out to start the second half and the Mean Green tied the game with a blocked pun
  11. I'l be taking up residence at East Side Social Club this Saturday to watch the game from as my planned trip to Athens was nixed by a dog going into surgery. If you or anyone else want to join me, let me know.
  12. Do not the score fool you, I am a better player than Shirkey. Any run of the mill NCAA 14 player (Shirkey) can come in and beat a powerhouse competitor (Me) when he’s playing North Texas, which is ranked a 72 overall, while playing with Georgia who is a 91. Flashback to two weeks ago when we played with even teams and I romped Alec by a score of 56-35 with South Carolina, but I’m not here to dog on Shirkey (although it may be warranted). This week, I beat myself. Going up against the Georgia offense was nearly impossible with the Mean Green’s defensive players, and Aaron Murray
  13. I’m about to head to the airport for an afternoon flight to Atlanta, which will be a nice change, getting to go in a day early. I used up most of the material I wanted to get in the paper or in the blog, but I will leave you with some final thoughts. Before we get to those thoughts, a quick note: The UNT soccer team’s game against Baylor has been rained out. UNT is 2-1 and is looking for the stunner and just the second upset of a ranked team in program history.

  14. Over the course of his career, North Texas coach Dan McCarney pretty much has seen it all when it comes to the personalities and confidence levels of players. McCarney has coached quiet guys and loud guys, confident guys and guys who needed encouragement. Then there’s Darvin Kidsy. Even McCarney, who got into the coaching business in 1977, had never encountered anything quite like the UNT freshman receiver. “He’s really confident,” McCarney said. “He called me more than any of the signees did, and it continued once he got here and camp was going on. Most of the time it’s coaches c
  15. ATHENS — On an early-season schedule that is as rugged as any in college football, this is the one that has romp written it all over it for Georgia. Nobody will confuse North Texas with the top-10 teams the preceded it on the Bulldogs’ slate (Clemson and South Carolina) or will follow next week (LSU). The Mean Green is a 32½-point underdog. That’s actually less than the 37 points Michigan was favored to beat Akron by last week. The Zips nearly went all Appalachian-State-circa-2007 on the Wolverines, who thwarted a pass attempt at the end zone on the game’s last play to avoid a shocker
  16. North Texas scored 95 points this year versus Idaho, Ohio and Ball State, but has been outscored 232-27 by LSU and Alabama over its last five games against ranked SEC opponents. The Mean Green are 1-43 all-time versus Top 25 schools, including 34 straight losses since defeating San Diego State in 1974. They overcame an 11-point halftime deficit at home to Ball State last Saturday by scoring 18 second-half points en route to a 34-27 victory. "There's a lot of grit on this team," coach Dan McCarney told the school's official website. "The seniors want to be remembered for turning thi
  17. We have a special guest with us today in Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald. Mark covers Georgia. You can find his stories that appear in the paper at the newspaper’s website, where you can also find links to his blog and Twitter feed. Mark agreed to stop by and answer a few questions about Saturday’s game: 1. How does Georgia approach this game? Given that Georgia just had a week off, I think they go out there Saturday wanting to be crisp on offense and show improvement on defense. Any hangover from the South Carolina win is probably gone by now and the team wants to build mome
