  1. During the Bear's Bank segment, the Bear, who is 22-12-1 in picks this season, says there are a lot of big double-digit lines which he thinks will not come to fruition - perfect situation is North Texas, which he says "has nothing to play for - already clinched their division and a spot in the Conference USA championship against FAU, Rice has played better lately, North Texas has played a lot of close one-score games, nothing on the line for North Texas, would be surprised if Rice gets blown out at home by more than 12 points, North Texas has nothing to play for today..." They go one to say

  3. 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
  4. According to 2016 Nielsen data ESPN lost over 1.5 million subscribers from February to the end of May this year. That drops ESPN to 89,465,000 subscriber homes, a precipitous decline from the network's total number of 2013 subscribers which was over 99 million. Based on these numbers over the past four months ESPN lost an average of 10,400 subscribers a day. http://www.foxsports.com/college-footbal...tes-052816
  5. Disney and other media companies have been hit by the trend of "cord-cutting" as younger viewers opt for streaming services over cable and satellite TV channels, and investors are particularly focussed on how ESPN, one of the strongest cable brands, weathers the storm. http://www.business-standard.com/article...064_1.html
  6. http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2016/05/02/In-Depth/Media-rights.aspx Conference USA, too, is expected to see its annual rights fee drop from the $7 million per year range to just around $1 million per year, sources said, as the conference replaced bigger college brands like Central Florida, Houston and Memphis with smaller ones like Louisiana Tech, Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky. The deal with CBS and ESPN still has not been announced formally, but the conference says it will soon make an announcement. Conference USA’s current deals with Fox and C
  7. North Carolina offensive coordinator Seth Littrell will be named coach at North Texas, a source told ESPN. Littrell and the Tar Heels will play in their first ACC title game Saturday against Clemson. Littrell, 37, has been at UNC the past two years. Before joing the Tar Heels, Littrell was an offensive coordinator at Indiana (2012-13) and Arizona (2009-11). He also was an assistant at Texas Tech from 2005-08. Littrell is a 2001 Oklahoma graduate. Littrell was one of two finalists, along with TCU co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, a source said. Littrell replaces Dan McCarney, who was fired
  8. Woot! We're ranked 4th in the country! Congratulations coaching staff! I'm amused at the blurb they wrote for us:
  9. A potent pass rush returns, but gone is a veteran O-line. The Mean Green will need a QB to emerge for any shot at .500. Offense How the Mean Green beat you: With no red zone TOs, UNT scored at least a field goal on an FBS-best 94.3 percent of trips; it just needs more visits (35). Enter C-USA’s leading returning WR, Carlos Harris (869 yards). How you beat the Mean Green: With three four-year line starters gone, senior QB Andrew McNulty (6 TDs, 7 INTs) will face a lot of pressure. Defense How the Mean Green beat you: The D dropped the QB 33 times at an 8.4 percent clip (17th in the FBS),

  11. “When all things are equal with records and whatnot, if someone has played a tougher nonconference schedule, it would usually benefit you,” Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said, while noting he believes tough nonconference games would have helped in the BCS era as well. “Otherwise, why play? Otherwise, you might as well just schedule three yawners that no one will pay attention to and not put yourself at risk of losing that game.” Any nonconference slip up from a Big 12 favorite could come back to haunt the conference as a whole, particularly since the last conference champion to finish the regu
  12. The Mid-American Conference has agreed to a new 13-year contract with ESPN, according published reports by The Associated Press and The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer on Monday. The new agreement would give the network all television distribution rights to the MAC’s football games through the 2026-27 season. The new deal is expected to give ESPN rights to all men’s basketball as well, and a select number of women’s basketball and olympic sports games. A formal announcement is expected on Tuesday. The MAC’s current deal with ESPN is for $1.4 million per year, and is split evenly amo
  13. Texas 31, North Texas 14: Charlie Strong's debut game is up and down with the Longhorn defense taking a shutout into the fourth quarter but with the offense struggling to pull away from North Texas. Ultimately, UT is never really threatened but has plenty of room to grow after Week 1. Other prediction of note: Baylor 63, SMU 42: Baylor's offense does what we've come to expect from Baylor's offense, but the Bears defense and secondary in particular struggle in the season opener against the Mustangs. BU quarterback Bryce Petty, once again making things look easier than they are, passes 4
  14. DENTON, Texas -- North Texas coach Dan McCarney is getting a new five-year contract after leading the Mean Green to nine wins and their first bowl victory in 11 seasons. School officials said Tuesday, only hours before spring practice began, that the deal was imminent. Attorneys were reviewing the new contract that will take McCarney through the 2018 season. "What they did was, in putting a contract in place really, is showing appreciation for changing the culture at this place. It's showing appreciation for how we do it, and the way we've done it on the field, in the classroom, in Den
  15. Full Story. Interesting that this is coming to FBS as a way to pay coaches. Seems like an interesting way to stretch AD budgets if you can make it work.
  16. What it means: This is a huge win for North Texas. It marks the Mean Green's third bowl win in school history and first since 2002. It had been a while since they've even been to a bowl game (2004 was their last trip) but Dan McCarney and Co. appear to be headed in the right direction. After finishing 4-8 a year ago, finishing 9-4 this season is a nice turnaround for the Mean Green. Read more: http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/92226/instant-analysis-north-texas-36-unlv-14
  17. DALLAS -- It was clear at the end of Wednesday's Heart of Dallas Bowl that North Texas' fans weren't quite sure what do to after a bowl win. Some of them contemplated rushing the field and in the end, maybe 500 of them decided to join the team in celebration at the 50-yard line, doing so in the most calm and orderly "storming" of a field you'll ever see. You can't blame them. North Texas hadn't won a bowl game since 2002. But on Wednesday, after struggling to get going in the first half, the Mean Green dominated the second half in a 36-14 win over UNLV. Wednesday was one of those rare op
  18. DALLAS -- Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby joked that he's glad to avoid the topic of conference realignment, but he had plenty to say on another topic Monday: NCAA reform. During his 45-minute state of the conference remarks to open Big 12 media days in Dallas, Bowlsby stressed the importance of achieving "transformative change" to the NCAA, its leadership system and its future. "I really do think we need to reconfigure the leadership of the organization," Bowlsby said. "I don't think we can at this point in time move forward, and we certainly haven't been able to configure an agenda t
  19. The Mountain West Conference has agreed to tie-ins with six bowl games starting in 2014, sources said. The Mountain West's six bowl tie-ins are expected to be six-year deals from 2014-19. The Las Vegas Bowl will get the first selection from the Mountain West, while the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego will get the second selection, sources said. The Hawaii, Armed Forces in Fort Worth, Texas, and New Mexico bowls will share the third, fourth and fifth selections. The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise, Idaho, will get the league's sixth selection, sources said. Despite a number of bowls
  20. The seventh selection from the ACC was contracted to play in the game against an at-large team before C-USA completed the deal to fill the spot. C-USA and bowl officials will determine which selection from C-USA will play in the bowl, the sources said. The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman, set for Dec. 27 with a 2:30 p.m. ET kickoff, will be the sixth bowl affiliated with C-USA.

  21. "It was fully explored," Delany said of a 10-game league schedule. "It would have been nice, but we were having difficulty seeing 28 nonconference games and getting accomplished what we want in terms of major matchups. We felt we'd have a much harder time getting to seven home games. "We just thought it was a reach. Who's to say in the future where we may go, but right now, we felt nine was the right place to be." The league's athletic directors and presidents also approved a scheduling model that includes at least one team from a major FBS conference per year and no FCS teams. Delany hope
  22. North Texas coach Dan McCarney underwent heart bypass surgery last Friday, sources told ESPN. McCarney, 59, acknowledged in a statement that he had a medical procedure but wasn't specific. He returned to the office Friday, a week after the surgery. Doctors recommended McCarney undergo the surgery following a routine office visit earlier in the week. "The medical staff was outstanding," McCarney said in a statement released through North Texas. "I put my future in their hands and everything went great. I have already begun the road to recovery and am excited to be back in the office wo
  23. ESPN Regional Television (ERT), a subsidiary of ESPN, announced that the Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl will be played on Tuesday, Dec. 24, on Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium. Kickoff is 3 p.m. HT (8 p.m. ET) and the game will be televised nationally on ESPN. Now in its 12th year, the bowl will pit a team from the Mountain West against a team from Conference USA. The game will be played on Christmas Eve for the ninth time. “We are excited to pair our warm weather with some great football for the entire nation to view on ESPN,” said David Matlin, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl Executive Director.
