  1. The crowd of 38,380 seemed sparse in the 92,100-seat Cotton Bowl, and seemingly more than 38,000 of those fans were wearing their North Texas green, filling the stands behind their team’s sideline from end zone to end zone, not surprising with the campus located about 45 minutes from the stadium. Small clumps of Rebel red did their best to buoy UNLV, a near-touchdown underdog. The teams’ honorary captains were announced for the pregame coin toss, the first of many times the Rebels were outclassed on the field that day: UNLV’s representative was former cornerback Kevin Thomas, a decent enou
  2. I got this idea as I fell asleep last night watching this damn thing again for the 5th time!!! My wife is like you are crazy!! Come on guys, they say the first step to overcoming an addiction is being honest with yourself about it ;-) I see this as sort of a "raise your hand if you cried during old yeller" poll...
  3. DALLAS - For the first time in eleven years and the first time on New Year's Day in program history, the North Texas football team is a bowl champion. In a game that epitomized the 2013-14 North Texas season, the Mean Green fell behind early but showed its boundless resiliency, methodically taking control of the game, battering the UNLV offense into submission, getting an efficient performance from senior quarterback Derek Thompson, and scoring a Heart of Dallas bowl-record 22 fourth-quarter points to roll to a 36-14 victory Wednesday afternoon at the Cotton Bowl. "Really proud of my
  4. DALLAS (AP) — Derek Thompson and Brelan Chancellor were among the seniors who wanted North Texas' first bowl game in nine years to be close to family and friends. They made a lot of green-clad fans very happy. Thompson threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns, Chancellor scored twice and the Mean Green dominated the second half of a 36-14 victory over UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Wednesday. North Texas (9-4) pulled away from a 7-7 halftime tie for its first bowl win since New Orleans in 2002. The school's third postseason victory came in front of a strong turnout of 38,380 on a sunn
  5. By Drew Harris, www.heartofdallasbowl.com DALLAS – It’s certainly been a long road for UNLV. This time, traveling more than 1,200 miles to the Heart of Dallas Bowl presented by PlainsCapital Bank and a de facto home game for North Texas proved to be too much for a rising Rebel program, which lost 36-14 on Wednesday afternoon at Cotton Bowl Stadium. North Texas (9-4), located just 44 miles north of Dallas on Interstate 35E, opened up a game that was tied 7-7 at intermission with physical play on both sides of the ball. The Mean Green scored 22 fourth-quarter points to hand UNLV (7-6) its
  6. Heart of Dallas Bowl Link: http://theheartofdallasbowl.com/ DALLAS - North Texas made its return to the postseason a memorable one with a New Year's Day 36-14 victory over UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl presented by PlainsCapital Bank. The Mean Green put a cap on a remarkable 9-4 turnaround season on a perfect afternoon at the historic Cotton Bowl. North Texas won a bowl game for the first time since 2002 and finished with at least nine wins for the first time since 2003. "Really proud of my football team," North Texas coach Dan McCarney said. "I dreamed of a day these seniors could g
  7. UNLV isn’t the only success story playing at Cotton Bowl Stadium on Wednesday in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. North Texas (8-4) has had a better 15-year run than the Rebels but recently their situations have been very similar, with the Mean Green winning only 22 games from 2005-12.. Under third-year coach Dan McCarney, who led Iowa State from 1995-2006, the Mean Green have broken out of their rut to play in a bowl game located less than an hour’s drive from campus. North Texas has done it with a top-10 defense that should pose significant challenges for UNLV’s potent offense. To get to kn
  8. DALLAS North Texas players and coaches talked about the special opportunity in front of them months ago. The schools program turns 100 this season. Players like senior linebacker Zach Orr and a host of other veterans on the Mean Greens roster wanted to make sure that milestone season would be remembered for a lot more than just that anniversary. There is little doubt now that it turned out to be a breakout season. The Mean Green (8-4) is headed to its first bowl game since 2004, has already won as many games as it has in any season since 2003 and posted a host of key wins. The Mean Gree
  9. DALLAS — And to think Cyril Lemon almost didn’t visit the University of North Texas. The 2011 Marble Falls High School graduate took one last trip in February of his senior year and found his new home with the Mean Green. Three years later, Lemon, a junior, is a solid fixture on the North Texas offensive line and leads the nation in consecutive starts for his position at 36. Head coach Dan McCarney was so impressed with Lemon during his final year at Marble Falls that he told the player he would be a starter for the Mean Green when he arrived on campus. “You have to keep your b
  10. Dan McCarneys phone has been buzzing pretty much nonstop over the last few days, just like the phone in the North Texas ticket office. UNT is only two days away from facing UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on New Years Day, and those closest to the program say they sense an enthusiasm building unlike anything they have seen in years when it comes to Mean Green football. UNT is breaking a nine-year bowl drought under McCarney, its third-year head coach who has been receiving well-wishes on a regular basis after leading the Mean Green to wins in six of its last seven regular-season games.

  11. Our WKRN-Channel 2 news and sports maven, Dawn Davenport has been keeping up with Santa Claus's travel schedule. She started off doing sideline reporting Dec. 21 from the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise, Idaho. Don't let this out, but D-square wanted everyone to know it was cold in Boise. Dawn will also be at the Cotton Bowl for the Heart of Dallas Bowl between North Texas State and UNLV. That will be on ESPNU Jan. 1 Read more: http://www.wkrn.com/story/24321406/joe-biddle-sunday-notes-dec-282013
  12. UNT is headed to a bowl game for the first time since 2004 and the Denton Record-Chronicle is going all out for the occasion. If it seems like I have been MIA on the blog for a while, which I have, there is a good reason. I have been holed up in the office writing and designing the largest bowl section we have ever produced. The section will be 12 pages with not a sliver of wire content anywhere. It’s all UNT and UNLV all the time. Read more: http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2013/12/the-heart-of-dallas-bowl-section-is-out-tomorrow.html/
  13. I was interested for how many here would this be your first UNT bowl game in person? Having been able to make the New Orleans bowl games I can tell you that you are in for a real treat. There's something special about a nationally televised bowl game that words can't do justice...having the students, band, alumni, etc all on the same side together is a really neat experience. I am real happy that we are playing in this Heart of Dallas Bowl for many reasons. I do think the biggest though is how many of our fans will be able to experience the Mean Green playing a bowl game in person. GMG
  14. GAME DAY EATS - If you are hungry before or after the Heart of Dallas Bowl on New Year's Day, the iconic Old Mill Inn Restaurant & Bar will be open at 7:30 a.m. on game day. Located 400 feet from the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium in the shadow of Big Tex inside Fair Park, the Old Mill Inn will feature breakfast and lunch with a full bar service. The menu features county-style cooking like chicken-fried steak, sandwich baskets, fruit cobbler and more. The Old Mill Inn was built as a flour mill for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition. It was a large exhibit that featured a modern experim
