  1. Here’s a look at the six newcomers: ▪ Phillip Houston, a 6-5, 270-pound offensive tackle, arrives from Navarro Community College in Texas. ▪ Jamarrion Solomon, a 5-11, 270-pound defensive tackle, is a freshman from Miami Palmetto. He will rejoin another former Palmetto defensive tackle, Savion Collins, who is an FIU veteran. “(Solomon) is dominant – quick and athletic,” MacIntyre said. “He plays with good leverage and is put together like a 25-year-old.” ▪ Luke Knox, a 6-3, 240-pound outside linebacker, spent the past four years at Ole Miss, making two starts in 2019. He was switched to tight end last year, but MacIntyre wants him on defense. His older brother is Buffalo Bills starting tight end Dawson Knox. read more: https://amp.miamiherald.com/sports/college/conference-usa/florida-international-university/article262967983.html
  2. 6. North Texas The Mean Green overcame a 1-6 start by winning their last five regular-season games (including a win over undefeated UTSA) to earn the program’s fifth bowl trip in six years under coach Seth Littrell. But after an 18-9 mark from 2017-18, North Texas is only 14-21 over the last three seasons and the pressure is building on Littrell. A step forward in ’22 will require more consistency out of the passing game (197.1 yards a contest last fall), which could come in the form of Memphis/Arizona transfer Grant Gunnell after he joined the mix to push Austin Aune after spring ball. The Mean Green are deep at running back – a unit bolstered by promising sophomore Oscar Adaway III returning from an ACL tear to join Ikaika Ragsdale and Ayo Adeyi. Players returning from ailments also boost the receiving corps with Tommy Bush and Jyaire Shorter joining Damon Ward and Roderic Burns to form a standout receiving corps. Four starters return along an offensive line that should rank among the best in the conference. The hire of veteran play-caller Phil Bennett had a massive impact on North Texas’ defense last fall. In 2020, this unit surrendered 6.94 yards per snap and 42.8 points a game but cut those totals to 27.5 a contest and 5.7 yards a play. Improving on those numbers will require replacing ends Grayson and Gabriel Murphy (transferred to UCLA) and tackle Dion Novil. Linebacker KD Davis is among Conference USA’s top returning defenders for ’22. Key swing games against Louisiana Tech, FAU and Rice take place in Denton.

  3. I haven't been plugged into much news about this upcoming football season. Can someone point me to an existing thread or explain where UNT stands right now in terms of its schedule? I know A&M has cancelled all non-conference games this season but assuming C-USA doesn't shut down this season are we still expecting to play our non-conference opponents as it stands today? SMU, Houston, HBU? If we are still planning on playing everyone on schedule besides A&M, this season doesn't seem completely lost as I had once thought. As long as CUSA doesn't cancel, I feel pretty good about our success in the upcoming season.
  4. Similar to the interview/breakdown that SBNtion did of "Peter Pan", they wrote something similar of ODU's second win over WKU Saturday: https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2018/10/22/18007100/old-dominion-wku-ending-2018 Should we care much about the dregs of CUSA-East? Naw, not really. Are the highlights and read of this game entertaining? Hell yeah.
  5. https://techcrunch.com/2017/08/23/facebook-will-live-stream-over-a-dozen-college-football-games-this-year/ "Facebook wants you to watch more video on its site – including those you can’t see elsewhere. To that end, the social network earlier this month launched a dedicated section for original video, called Watch. Now that’s being expanded with the addition of live-streamed college football games, broadcast in partnership with sports network Stadium. The deal will bring 15 live college football games to Facebook, including nine Conference USA games and six Mountain West games. These games will be exclusively broadcast on Facebook, the company says, and will be available on the Stadium: Live College Football Show Page to users worldwide, as well as on Watch for U.S. users. Unlike games aired on traditional television, the games broadcast on Facebook will take advantage of the digital platform to introduce a number of interactive elements as part of the viewing experience. For example, they will include a live, curated chat from football personalities alongside the on-air presentation. Plus, a social team and other correspondents will work to engage the at-home audience in conversation." UNT vs LA Tech on November 4th will be 1 of the 9 CUSA games shown on the platform.
  6. Liberty University is not messing around. https://pilotonline.com/sports/columnist/harry-minium/liberty-university-already-spends-more-on-athletics-than-odu-and/article_ce714ec9-31db-5420-8e4b-ce63bc2e2474.html
  7. A fun and interesting article https://www.underdogdynasty.com/conference-usa/2017/7/28/16047118/conference-usa-west-ncaa-football-recruiting-prestige-rankings-2018-la-tech-rice-utsa-uab-unt-utep

  9. It would appear the experiments last year were deemed successful. http://www.underdogdynasty.com/conference-usa/2017/5/3/15532488/conference-usa-will-have-games-streamed-on-twitter-this-year-g5-stadium-tv-contract-cusa I personally fully support this move. It certainly does not address the abysmal media payout situation we find ourselves in, but it does definitely mitigate the error of fan accessibility.
  10. http://pilotonline.com/sports/college/ol...abcf2.html Regional realignment will be driven by finances. Not a matter of if but when.
  11. I haven't really been following the Lane Kiffin at FAU. But does anyone know if he will hire his father again to be his defensive coordinator or as a defensive assistant? Monte is currently a defensive assistant with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
  12. Here is a summary of the CUSA recruiting classes. http://collegefootballnews.com/2017/2017...s-rankings C-USA ranking 2nd in G5 group, just behind AAC (SMU's conference). http://www.sbnation.com/college-football...g-day-2017 Overall not too bad from a conference perspective. We beat out Mountain West and Mac/Belch
  13. We need reconsider our "Big 12 aspirations". The market right now is saturated and they have diluted a lot of what makes college football unique and great with conference realignment. And TV executives aren't all in like they were in the first round of super-conference creation. It looks like the only way a Big 12 expansion would be approved by their TV partners would be stealing a popular team from one the other P5 conferences. BYU is the only team available that actually has a good foothold in a new market for the Big 12. Take a look at this story featured at the link below. If you were AD besides just winning what would you want UNT to try to do in light of this information? http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2016/08/01/Media/Big-12-TV.aspx
  14. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 20, 2016 Contact: Jordan Stepp jordan.stepp@unt.edu/940-369-8329 MEAN GREEN FOOTBALL Kishawn McClain Named To Preseason All-Conference Team McClain Was Selected By The 13 Conference USA Coaches IRVING, Texas – Junior safety Kishawn McClain was selected to the 2016 Conference USA All-Conference by the league’s 13 head coaches, the conference office announced Wednesday. McClain was the Mean Green’s leading tackler in 2015 and is expected to help lead North Texas, as the program begins the Seth Littrell era, when it opens the season on Sept. 3 against Metroplex rival SMU at Apogee Stadium at 6 p.m. McClain ranked third in C-USA with 110 total tackles in 2015, 77 of which were solo.

  15. Talks about three subdivisions to Division 1. Talks a lot about CUSA, though it doesn't mention UNT, but you can kinda read between the lines. Interesting offseason reading anyway. http://www.thechaosindex.com/cest-la-tv-college-football-is-about-to-change-a-whole-lot-more-than-you-realize/
  16. In another discussion we are debating out of conference opponents. Everyone whats to get a good P5 team to come to Apogee. However it got me to thinking; What teams that we have never played before would you want UNT to play regardless of location? My top 5 are below. What are yours? 1. Michigan 2. USC 3. Notre Dame 4. Oregon 5. Ohio State
  17. "If you have to play a bodybag game twice a year to afford a program, drop football." His counterpart's expressions are priceless.
  18. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/eye-on-college-football/25289837/conference-usa-beats-sec-for-first-time-since-2010-wku-tops-vandy This is the first triumph over SEC for a CUSA since 2010. It wasn't pretty but it was a W. - http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/ucf-knights/os-ucf-fiu-game-story-20150903-story.html In similar fashion - http://espn.go.com/blog/pac12/post/_/id/90688/utsa-gives-arizona-a-scare-but-solomon-and-defensive-scores-push-wildcats-through Arizona only beat UTSA by ten. UTSA played pretty well but lost with some seriously costly turnovers. Good opening for CUSA. What do you think can be seen from our conference-mates in these games? Close game with a top 25 is a pretty good start for a loss.
  19. I thought this list was interesting. The FBS transfers each school in CUSA has gotten (and currently on the roster). UNT and UTSA tie for the lead with 9, and USM a close second (8).
  20. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/12886474/major-college-football-attendance-hits-worst-average-2003 "UAB, which cut its football program but is considering reinstating it in the coming weeks, had the second-biggest rise, jumping from 10,548 fans per game to 21,841."
  21. The 2014-2015 athletic year has come to a close. This is a list of official conference championships recognized by CUSA including both regular season (RS) and tournament (T) championships; Cross Country, Swimming/Diving, Tennis, Gold, Track & Field (Indoor and Outdoor) only crown postseason champions. 8 Western Kentucky 3 Rice North Texas UTSA 2 MTSU Marshall FIU Louisiana Tech 1 UTEP Charlotte Old Dominion UAB 0 Southern Miss Florida Atlantic http://www.conferenceusa.com/championships/1415-c-usa-championships.html
  22. Marshall's president suddenly and unexpectedly passes away last night. http://www.charlestondailymail.com/article/20141217/DM01/141219264/1276 EDIT: Spell check got me.
