  1. I promised myself I would move on to Tulsa after 24 hours but there is one thing I need to get off my chest. The reason that UTSA won that ball game is because they played to win. Even when they were up by two TD's they never took their pedal off the metal...they kept throwing the ball on first down and going for our throat. UTSA played with a sense of urgency even when they had a comfortable lead. We on the other hand played not to lose. We took very few chances until late in the game. We were satisfied to run the ball on every first down even though they knew we would. It is as
  2. Derek Thompson and Zach Orr trudged in to a meeting room and plopped down behind a microphone for the final time at Apogee Stadium on Saturday with looks of disappointment etched on their faces. This was supposed to be their last hurrah, a time when Thompson, Orr and the rest of North Texas’ seniors could talk about one more good time in careers that are ending in a way they always hoped. UNT is all but assured of heading to a bowl for the first time since 2004, despite a 21-13 loss to Texas-San Antonio, largely because of those seniors. Those players clung to the reality that ther
  3. I read this post on their fan website and it seems somewhat plausible -- OK so not many teams will score 21 points in the first half against our defense and the way it is playing right now. But I've watched a number of the UTSA games and they come out on fire...they go for the jugular and move the offense at a very rapid pace. The tend to own the momentum and energy early in most all of their games. Conversely - our offense typically sputters out of the gate. We've had to come from behind so many times this season, with Rice being the most recent example. Canales is going
  4. North Texas linebacker Zach Orr could hardly believe the subject his defensive coordinator brought up earlier this year. Orr and his teammates have always marveled at the breadth of John Skladany’s knowledge when it comes to football and a whole lot else. The senior just never expected the 65-year-old college football lifer to bring up pop-culture sensation Miley Cyrus. “He mentioned that she did something crazy,” Orr said. “We all thought, ‘What? How does he know about her?’ “That’s what makes him so special to play for — he has that connection with us. He knows the rappers we lis
  5. UTSA junior tailback David Glasco II, who leads the Roadrunners in rushing this season, will miss Saturday's key Conference USA game against North Texas with a foot injury, head coach Larry Coker said Wednesday after practice. Glasco was at the workout but did not practice. "He will not make the trip," Coker said. UTSA, 5-5 overall and 4-2 in the C-USA West Division, plays North Texas at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Denton. The Roadrunners trail North Texas and Rice, both 5-1 in Conference USA, by one game in the West Division race. Glasco hurt the foot in practice on the Thursday before UT
  6. We are fortunate today to have Jerry Briggs of the San Antonio Express-News on the blog with us to discuss UNT’s game against UTSA this weekend. Jerry is the go-to guy for coverage of the Roadrunners. Case in point, Jerry is reporting that UTSA will be without its leading rusher David Glasco II this weekend. One can find Jerry’s stories that appear in the paper on the Express-News website’s UTSA section.Here is a link to Jerry’s UTSA blog 1. UTSA seems to be on a bit of a roll late in the season. What has changed? The UTSA defense has started to force turnovers and the offensive li
  7. SAN ANTONIO — Decked out in hand casts, wrist tape and full pads, the UTSA Roadrunners summoned the type of enthusiasm Tuesday that has carried them through a long and successful season. Players sprinted from station to station. Coaches barked, ‘Let’s win a championship.’ Feeling the fever of the Conference USA title race, 65-year-old UTSA head coach Larry Coker executed a flying body bump with running back Evans Okotcha just after the team hit the practice field at 7:15 a.m. “The guys had good energy today,” Coker said. ”Of course, we had a shorter practice. The guys had a
  8. UTSA is working to sign head football coach Larry Coker to a long-term contract extension, athletic director Lynn Hickey said Tuesday night. Coker’s contract runs through the 2015 football season. Hickey declined to comment on financial terms or the duration of the proposed deal. “Just say that we’re working on the details and that we need to move it to the (UT System) Board of Regents before we release any of those details,” she said. ”But we are working toward that and certainly want him to be with our program for several more years.” Read more: http://blog.mysanantonio.com

GAME NOTES: Just one win behind Rice for the top spot in the West Division of Conference USA, the North Texas Mean Green try to run their home win streak to six in a row as they clash with the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners on Saturday afternoon. Since losing back-to-back games against Georgia and Tulane, the Mean Green
  11. "I like how unt calls us out for not having our own stadium, well I did a little research and found some interesting things about Apogee Stadium..." "For the spring 2002 student election, UNT Student Government Association (SGA) senators held a referendum on whether to recommend that the University of North Texas SystemBoard of Regents increase the student athletics fee by $4.50 per credit hour, $1 of which would be dedicated to "facility improvements".[9] The referendum was rejected by UNT's voting students, with 1,023 voting for the proposal and 1,265 voting against it. After the vote, how
  12. Major Division-I college football powers like the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University football sustain decades of success and bowl game appearances, but the UNT football team hasn’t reached that level yet. For the first time in nine years, the team is projected to go to a bowl game with hopes of winning one for the second time in school history. The last UNT bowl-winning team comes from 2002, where the Mean Green came out victorious at the New Orleans Bowl. The bowl win came in the midst of four consecutive Sun Belt Conference titles and four New Orleans Bowl appearanc
  13. I shot a little video this week with UNT quarterback Derek Thompson. We cover the UTSA game this weekend and some of his thoughts as we head toward the end of the regular season. Thompson and a whole lot of other seniors will play their final home game on Saturday. Brelan Chancellor and Zach Orr will also look to go out on a positive note. UNT is on a heck of a roll late in the season with five straight wins. UNT will have its annual Senior Bowl this week. The Mean Green has responded really well to the concept over the years. Win and the team photo is displayed in the office all year.
  14. "I stumbled onto the UNT forum and damn do they have a hard-on for UTSA or what? I can't believe how much hatred they have for UTSA already and we've never even played. I get the feeling they're scared at the rate at which UTSA has risen to competitiveness and, much like the Teachers College in San Marcos, see UTSA crushing them very soon in Texas recruiting and therefore, on the field. In 3 years when UTSA is playing on regional TV every weekend because of market size & a new winning tradition... UNT will simply be another mid-major trying to pick up UTSA's leftovers that no one outside o
  15. UTSA running back David Glasco II hasn’t been ruled out for Saturday’s game at North Texas. But UTSA coach Larry Coker on Monday acknowledged concern over what he described as a case of plantar fasciitis in one of Glasco’s feet. The plantar fascia is the tissue that connects the heel to the toes. A strained plantar fascia can result in swelling in the tissue, which makes it hard to walk or run, according to information on webmd.com. Glasco, the team’s leading rusher, hurt the foot two days before UTSA’s Nov. 9 home game against Tulane. Because of the injury, he sat out the Tulan

  18. 5. North Texas (7-3, 5-1, next game Saturday vs. UTSA) — Dan McCarney’s coaching job with the Mean Green has to rank among his most satisfying and best in his career. North Texas took Saturday off and can take care of the C-USA West Division title by winning out. They already have the tiebreaker over Rice and can take another step to the championship game when upstart UTSA visits. 9. UTSA (5-5, 4-2, next game Saturday @ North Texas) — The Roadrunners had the week off to prepare for a huge upcoming challenge at North Texas with a share of first place in the C-USA West Division at stake. Lar
  19. In the heat of the summer, when the temperature soared into triple digits and times were at their toughest during workouts, Aaron Bellazin kept reminding his fellow North Texas defensive linemen about the perception of how they would impact the Mean Greens season. UNT had a veteran quarterback in Derek Thompson, a stable of good running backs, a veteran offensive line and potentially one of the best linebackers in Conference USA in Zach Orr. What it didnt have was a lot of certainty on its defensive front. Defensive end Brandon McCoy and defensive tackle Ryan Boutwell missed spring pract
