  1. Since UNT has returned to FBS (Div I-A) Football it seems to me the only offensive position we have been consistently decent at is running back. I wanted to pose the question to the MGB board of why has allowed UNT to be consistent at that position? Perry is the latest departure but it seem that during this run the entire staff has turned over several times but running back play has been a consistent bright spot on offense most years. How does the Mean Green keep the run going? Several other topics inspired this one specifically "Great Mean Green FB You Ever Saw" among others. This
  2. DENTON - The North Texas Athletic Department on Friday announced its 2016 Athletics Hall of Fame class, a group that comes from four decades and three sports. The six-person class is headlined by a pair of alumni currently playing in the NFL, Lance Dunbar and Craig Robertson. Dunbar, the leading rusher in North Texas history, is a running back with the Dallas Cowboys, while Robertson, the No. 2 tackler in school history, is a linebacker with the New Orleans Saints. This year's class also boasts: Susan Waters, one of the best hitters in Mean Green softball history;
  3. Monday marked the last time several players will walk through the halls of Valley Ranch. The Cowboys have 18 unrestricted free agents, and it’s a safe bet most of them will find new homes this off-season. Running back Lance Dunbar and defensive lineman Jack Crawford expressed an interest in returning to the team. Others, such as linebacker Rolando McClain, refused comment as they packed up their belongings. For a guy such as Dunbar, the Cowboys are the only team he has known in his professional career. The North Texas product carved out a niche as a third-down back and return
  4. “It was like starting all over, starting my life all over, making new friends,” Dunbar said. “It was a pretty crazy experience, but I think it made me who I am today, a better person.” Dunbar ran for 3,025 yards and scored 25 rushing touchdowns in his 21/2 seasons at Haltom and earned a scholarship to North Texas. He finished his four-year college career as the Mean Green’s all-time leading rusher, with 4,224 yards, and all-time leading scorer, with 49 touchdowns. Now in his fourth NFL season, Dunbar has earned a bigger role with the Cowboys. “I feel like the game is what made it a whole lot e
  5. the backfield yet, but running back Lance Dunbar has been shining at OTAs. Per ESPN's Todd Archer, Dunbar stole the show at Wednesday's practice. "If they handed out MVP of the day trophies, then it would have gone to running back Lance Dunbar. He caught four passes from Tony Romo in the two-minute drill work to close the first-team’s work in practice and had the linebackers on skates in seven-on-seven drills. Perhaps this really is the year the Cowboys use Dunbar more." Dunbar is expected to compete for the third-string running back position, but with Darren McFadden sidelined with a hamstrin
  6. This writer seems to believe (as we all do here at GMG.com) that Lance was under-utilized, and his contract extension should mean more touches. http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/2015/03/18/roster-rundown-dunbar-was-underutilized-during-disappointing-2014-campaign?adbid=10153751933252814&adbpl=fb&adbpr=99559607813&campaign=social_20150318_42328296
  7. Unless the Cowboys start giving him more playing time I wonder if it wouldn't be better for his career to play with another team?
  8. IRVING, Texas -- Lance Dunbar's journey to the NFL has been the result of perseverance. Were talking about a guy who left his hometown of New Orleans after his sophomore season because of Hurricane Katrina and spent his last two years at Haltom High School. Now, he wasnt a big-time recruit, even though he was a quality runner, because he is only 5-foot-8 and 185 pounds. And hes more quick than fast. But hes always believed in himself, even when others didnt. Frankly, that is one of the reasons he went to North Texas. He figured if the played well, the NFL would find him no matter where h

  10. Dunbar is even younger, and thus fresher, and coming off a sophomore season in which he averaged an impressive 5.0 yards per carry (albeit on a tiny sample size of 30 attempts). Before suffering a season-ending knee injury last November, the 24-year-old was tearing it up with 102 yards on 15 carries over a two-game stretch, twice busting free for 18-plus yards. Dunbar has only experienced 144 regular-season NFL snaps, but the Cowboys cherish the North Texas product so much right now that he was among the healthy scratches for last week's preseason opener. They're already thinking about pres
  11. OXNARD, Calif. Even the lead running back is calling for Lance Dunbar to get touches this year. Anyone whos watched Dunbar since the North Texas product came to the Cowboys in 2012 has seen that the 5-8 running back brings an added dimension of quickness, speed and agility no others possess on the roster. Theres no question DeMarco Murray is the leader and bell cow of the group, but Dunbars the back everyones waiting to break out. Dunbars a special guy, Murray said. He definitely gives a great chance to do some things. I definitely want to be in there as much as I can. But I definitely
  12. 1. Lance Dunbar is poised for a huge year... if he stays healthy. The running back out of North Texas showed flashes last season before a knee surgery shortened his 2013 campaign. Dunbar told me he was nervous going into the procedure -- "that was the first time I'd ever had surgery!" -- but is really excited to have new Cowboys play caller Scott Linehan around. Linehan was very good getting the ball to running backs in the passing game in Detroit last season (Reggie Bush, for example). Dunbar was described to me by Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown as an unbelievably gifted RB in the
  13. OXNARD, Calif. -- In some ways Lance Dunbar still carries himself as an undrafted running back from North Texas. It doesnt matter that this is his third training camp with the Dallas Cowboys. It doesnt matter that he already has a role as the third-down back. It doesnt matter that he could be a core player on special teams. I wouldnt say I like it that way better, but it kind of pushes me, made me work harder, made me the guy I am today, Dunbar said. Dunbar is not established the way DeMarco Murray is established. He had just 30 carries last season and caught just seven passes before
  14. According to running back coach Gary Brown, there’s a very good chance Dunbar gets an expanded role in an offense that didn’t really have any use for him during his first two seasons in the NFL. Well, he’s a guy that’s going to be a complete weapon. We can line him up anywhere on the team-tailback spot, at the wide receiver spot, in the slot. He has tremendous hands and he’s just not a specialty guy. He could play tailback if you need him to go out there and give you 15 or 20 carries. He’s that type of kid. He brings a whole different dimension, a whole different vibe in our room as far as

  17. I noticed something in the DMN. Lance Dunbar showed to be on the active roster. I went to the Cowboys website and there he was still on the active roster not IR. Do they think he might play if they can get a ways into the playoffs?
  18. DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – After suffering a sprained left foot in Saturday’s preseason game, the Cowboys aren’t certain if running back Lance Dunbar will be ready for the team’s opener. That didn’t keep Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from making a lofty comparison on Tuesday. In his weekly segment on 105.3 The Fan’s New School, Jones compared the second-year running back to one of the NFC’s most dynamic backs in the past decade. “This is probably a stretch, but I know what [brian] Westbrook did to us for 100 years in Philadelphia,” said Jones. “I couldn’t figure it out, but all he did wa
  19. Don't forget to check out Lance Dunbar tonight in The Hall of Fame game. I'm guessing he gets a lot of PT It's preseason , but so what. It's finally here!
