  1. This is the kind of hor$hit WB and the AD Dept has to deal with in regards to the Denton Record Chronicle. Our softball team and it’s new coach Rodney DeLong traveled last Friday to College Station and kicked ass. They went 4-1 overall in the Aggie Classic that included a run-rule curb stomping Saturday of the host and 20th ranked A&M team 10-2, our first win over a ranked team in three seasons. We won 9-0 over UNC and won 8-7 in an extra inning marathon (12) over Cal Baptist Friday evening. We then run ruled A&M Saturday afternoon then lost by 1 in extra innings (9) Satu

  3. The Denton Record-Chronicle is going to be locally owned again. Bill Patterson, the longtime publisher of the Record-Chronicle, is purchasing the paper from A. H. Belo Corp., which has owned the publication since 1999. The sale will be completed by the end of the year, he announced Tuesday afternoon. "I think there's a great opportunity in Denton," Patterson said. "I feel strongly that Denton needs a daily newspaper and robust and trusted digital portfolio, and I believe we can be productive and grow." The decision to buy came after Patterson and leaders at A. H. Belo realized t
  4. UNT athletic director Rick Villarreal will receive a base salary of $275,000 with an annual $100,000 retention bonus and a $7,200 car allowance beginning on Sept. 1, 2013, under terms of his new contract that will run through Feb. 28, 2017. Villarreal will receive a $250,000 base salary and a $50,000 retention bonus for the school year beginning on Sept. 1. His salary from March 1 to Aug. 31 will be $228,000, a prorated portion of his base pay. The last of Villarreal’s three scheduled $100,000 bonuses during the term of the contract will be paid on Sept. 1, 2015. The contract also inclu
  5. “We are really excited about the upcoming season,” Benford said. “I feel like the nonconference schedule we have prepared will have us ready for a demanding Conference USA season. Playing in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic will pit us against four tough teams starting with Oklahoma, and we will also make trips to BYU and Texas A&M. Looking around our league, our schedule is comparable to most of the teams in C-USA, and we feel it’s a schedule that our fans will really enjoy.” Read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/sports/sports-headlines/20130912-mens-basketball-unt-finalizes-2013-14-sched
  6. A few days before North Texas took on UTEP on Saturday, head coach Dan McCarney talked about how much he liked the way the end of the Mean Green’s season was set up. UNT had a little extra time to prepare for its game against the Miners after a Thursday night win over Rice and now will have a whole extra week to take a breather before its game against Texas-San Antonio on Nov. 23. McCarney has emphasized all season that bye weeks are not off weeks. UNT will try to get a lot done in the next few days while trying to heal from nagging injuries. The Mean Green’s players echoed their coac
  7. 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
  8. http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2013/09/sunday-night-weekend-in-review.html/ I guess I know why I didn't see Loving vs Ohio. A kid with a Kansas State offer can't crack our 4 deep ? What gives ? No TE receptions after 2 games
  9. We are headed toward the beginning of a new season when it comes to UNT football. For those of us on the sports staff here at the DRC, it feels more like we have crossed the finish line. Our football preview magazine will be in the paper tomorrow. This year’s edition is 120 pages and there isn’t an iota of non-local content in it. None. I know. I designed every single page with content (those not taken up completely with ads) in the whole thing. Granted, this is a UNT blog followed by a lot of readers who are interested only in the Mean Green. Even when one takes that into acco
  10. UNT’s summer camp circuit has already paid dividends in the form of early commitments from DeSoto defensive tackle Shaquel Jackson and defensive end Johnavhon Grahm. UNT made stops in Duncanville, Arlington and Katy, among other cities. UNT head coach Dan McCarney said before he and his staff began their statewide tour that the effort they made over previous summers has helped improve the team’s talent level. That improvement has paid dividends on the field, where UNT has won nine games in McCarney’s first two seasons, exceeding the eight total wins the Mean Green posted the previous f
  11. Tulsa was a unanimous pick to win the West Division, while East Carolina was picked to win the East Division. We know that we have our work cut out for us heading into a new league, and we have a lot to prove against some great teams that are in our division and our league, UNT head coach Dan McCarney said in a statement. The last time UNT did not have a player named to a preseason all-conference team was in 2009, when the Mean Green played in the Sun Belt Conference. UNT left that league after last season to join C-USA. McCarney and UNTs players have spoken about the importance of playi
  12. Former North Texas standout Tony Mitchell sat in the seats at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night, waiting to carve out a niche in Mean Green history at the NBA draft. Mitchell did just that. He just had to wait a lot longer than most analysts projected. Mitchell was expected to be selected in the first round, but he slid all the way to the seventh pick of the second round, where the Detroit Pistons snapped him up. Despite dropping into the second round, Mitchell, a 6-9 forward, was selected higher than any player in UNT history. Kenneth Lyons was the 23rd pick of the second
  13. UNT coach Dan McCarney said that he has been pleased with the Mean Green’s progress in spring practice during his spring wrap-up press conference Tuesday. UNT will hold its annual spring game at 2 p.m. Saturday at Apogee Stadium. “If you really get good at fundamentals and learn the system so that you can play with confidence and then master things that take no talent whatsoever — that is effort, that is toughness and that is the ability to communicate with your coaches and teammates — that is a really good start for 2013,” McCarney said. “We have done a good job of that. I really like wh

  15. MONROE, La. — Louisiana-Monroe was about as far down as a college basketball team could be heading into its game against North Texas on Thursday. The Warhawks had lost nine straight and had dropped each of their last three games by at least 10 points. ULM came out of its funk against the Mean Green — not for long, a half at best — and handed UNT a second devastating loss this season. UNT was up 15 early in the second half, only to see ULM get on a roll and run away for an 85-73 win at Fant-Ewing Coliseum. ULM (4-17, 3-12 Sun Belt) has won just four games all season, with two of t
  16. With key players from last season graduating, the Mean Green will need certain players to step up if it wants to contend in the Sun Belt this season. It is worth noting what players will be missed and what players can be expected to step up and contribute in their place. WHO WILL BE MISSED: Lance Dunbar – Running Back Dunbar set the university’s all-time rushing record with 4,224 yards, recorded 49 career touchdowns with the Mean Green and was one of six players in NCAA history to have 4,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in a career. The gutsiest performance of Dunbar’s car
  17. I have taken a bit of a break from my post spring series on UNT’s roster, but now that I am back from vacation it’s time to get back at it. I started off with some positions where UNT has a lot to be confident about — quarterback and offensive line come to mind. Today, we take a look at an area of concern, UNT’s cornerback spot. UNT struggled at times last year at cornerback, despite having some experienced players — Royce Hill was a four-year starter and Steven Ford played two years for the Mean Green. By the middle of the year, freshman Freddie Warner had become a starter only to be lo
  18. North Texas standout Tony Mitchell tuned up for his freshman season by playing in the FIBA U-19 World Championships a year ago. Arthur Casimiro, one of the players he faced during the tournament, decided to follow the path Mitchell blazed to Denton on Wednesday. The 6-10 center committed to UNT after visiting the school. He will play the upcoming season at San Bernardino (Calif.) Community College and then have two seasons of eligibility remaining. Casimiro is a member of the Brazilian national team. Oral commitments are non-binding. The first day recruits in the class of 2013 can

  20. Cody Nelson felt like he was at the top of North Texas’ wish list when it came to offensive line prospects this summer. That made a big impression on the Keller tackle, who orally committed to UNT late Monday. Nelson had just one offer, from UNT, but said he was told by coaches at Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech that he could receive offers from them if he attended their summer camps. Nelson decided to go with the team that wanted him most. “The coaches at North Texas followed me the whole time and showed that they really wanted me,” Nelson said. “I wasn’t a backup plan in case someone

  22. One topic that I have been meaning to get to over the last few days, but haven’t had a chance to is where UNT stands as far as quarterbacks go moving forward following Brock Berglund’s decision to attend junior college. If you have not been following along, Berglund is the former Kansas quarterback who visited UNT and later decided to go to Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College, due largely to an NCAA ruling that would have forced him to sit a year and pay his own way if he enrolled at another FBS school. Point being, Berglund was high on UNT’s wish list in a year this team absolutely has
  23. A couple of people have e-mailed me over the last few days to bring up a question about UNT’s place in the college football world that I thought would make a perfect blog post. It seems like a lot of UNT fans are wondering when the school’s football program is going to see the mass influx of talent that people have been waiting on for years now. I can understand why that expectation is there. UNT has a terrific new football stadium, arguably the most accomplished football coach to come through town since Hayden Fry in Dan McCarney in place and the Mean Green is headed to Conference US
  24. I’m back from a short vacation and am ready to resume my post-spring blog series on UNT’s roster position-by-position by evaluating the Mean Green’s offensive line, but first a fun story. Vicky and I went to Portland for a few days and picked up a car at the airport. The guy from Enterprise looked at my license and said, “Denton, home of the Mean Green.” Long story short, we got to talking and it turned out the guy went to Troy for a couple of semesters before graduating from a school in Florida. (Insert joke about the Troy guy working at Enterprise here) Anyway, just thought that
