  3. SMU’s season opener could not have gone worse. The Mustangs were outgained, outplayed and outcoached in Saturday night’s 46-23 loss to North Texas at Apogee Stadium in Denton. “Everything that could go wrong went wrong,” SMU head coach Sonny Dykes said. SMU’s offense looked out of sync for the better part of the night. It started on the first drive, when the Mustangs went three and out after two penalties and a sack. Five of the Mustangs’ six first-half possessions ended in punts. On four of those drives, SMU went three and out. By the end of the first half, the Mustangs had just 24 total yards in the first half and only 46 by the end of the third quarter. “We never could get anything going,” Dykes said. “We couldn’t get on track. It just seemed like we were sluggish.” Ben Hicks’ struggles echoed those of the Mustangs’. He was under pressure all night long and had trouble throwing accurate passes to his receivers. He only completed three passes for 27 yards in the first half and threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown by North Texas’ Kemon Brooks to put the Mean Green up 14-0. Hicks rebounded in the fourth quarter, completing six of nine passes for 197 yards and two scores, but it was too little, too late. read more: http://www.smudailycampus.com/sports/everything-that-could-go-wrong-went-wrong
  4. The Mean Green could be a threat if they can get their defense up to speed with their offense. They’re a one sided opponent - outscore them, because they can go on offense but they can’t dictate pace." "Strong offense, the wide receiver from Notre Dame [Jaylen Guyton] really stands out on film." "The offensive system is interesting, they’re doing more experimental stuff than you’d expect from a Leach tree OC [Graham Harrell].” read more: https://www.google.com/amp/s/athlonsports.com/college-football/c-usa-coaches-talk-anonymously-about-conference-foes-2018%3Famp
  5. Joe Greene met his wife Agnes at the University of North Texas over 50 years ago. This summer, Joe Greene was back near campus to announce the start of the Agnes Lucille Craft Greene Memorial Scholarship named in his late wife's honor. Agnes Greene passed away after battling breast cancer in 2015. The scholarships will be presented annually to students at North Texas whose parents have battled cancer, with breast cancer "being a particular focus since that tragically took her life." “Not only the scholarship, but my kids, Major, Delon and JoQuel, they wanted to honor their mother in that way, to put a scholarship in her name at her school that she loved so much, to provide assistance to young people whose parents also had issues with cancer,” Greene said, via Steelers.com's Teresa Varley. “It’s a doubly important angle. It’s honoring her, and helping others. It’s important for me that Agnes, her name will be serving a wonderful purpose at North Texas and students will have an opportunity to extend their education. read more: https://247sports.com/nfl/pittsburgh-steelers/Article/Pittsburgh-Steelers-Joe-Greene-honors-late-wife-with-scholarship-fund-119551445/
  6. BOCA RATON For the first time since 2008, Florida Atlantic is preparing for postseason play. Though FAU (9-3, 8-0) clinched bowl eligibility on Nov. 3 and a spot in the Conference USA championship game earlier this month, the Owls are now officially getting ready for their first postseason game since a 24-21 win in Detroit over Central Michigan on Dec. 26, 2008 in the Motor City Bowl. FAU completed the fourth 8-0 season in C-USA history with last Saturday’s 31-12 win over Charlotte. Saturday’s C-USA title game pits FAU against North Texas (9-3, 7-1), a team the Owls beat 69-31 on Oct. 21. “I feel like we’ve done a lot, we’ve accomplished a lot,” FAU linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair said. “We’re not where we want to be, but looking back, we’ve done a lot of progress in the summer and even in December when the coaches first got here.” As the Sun Belt conference — FAU’s home from 2004-12 — does not have a championship game, the Owls will be playing in their first FBS title game. Here are some of the key details FAU fans need to know prior to Saturday’s C-USA title game. read more: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/college-football/after-perfect-conference-usa-season-fau-set-for-first-title-game/udHM8yHEcVglqquUBp61KL/

  8. DENTON, Texas (AP) — Trevor Moore kicked a 39-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to give North Texas a wild 52-49 victory over Army on Saturday night, ending the Black Knights' six-game winning streak. Mason Fine threw for 386 yards and four touchdowns, including a quick 10-yard toss with no timeouts left to get the Mean Green (8-3) a little closer for Moore's winning kick. The longest winning streak for Army (8-3) since 1996 ended despite 244 yards rushing and two touchdowns from quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw. "My most important thing is winning football games," said Bradshaw, who set Army's single-season rushing record at 1,472 yards, breaking Collin Mooney's 9-year-old record of 1,339. "If I have zero yards and we win the game, I'll be happier than having a million yards and losing the game." read more: https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2017/11/18/late-fg-lifts-north-texas-to-wild-52-49-victory-over-army/107842444/
  9. Heading into a critical game against Western Kentucky Thursday night in Denton. North Texas is currently ranked 55th while WKU is ranked 32. If North Texas beats WKU this team should shoot up in the rankings, but my question is this. Is wining the conference tournament North Texas’ only path into the NCAA Tournament? Or could North Texas still get in based on strength of schedule or rankings? Excited to see how this unfolds as I can’t remember when the last time the volleyball team was in a position to make the NCAA tournament. -GMG! http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/volleyball-women/d1

    UNT Christmas gifts

    I've seen this posted in the past and I liked it! Who got cool UNT stuff this year? Pics are certainly welcome and encouraged so that you can show off all your awesome UNT stuff. I got a sweet UNT alum coffee mug, which I am quite proud of and will use boldly and often. I also got a really nice dry-fit UNT pullover from my sweet, clean bride. But the coup de grâce are these bad boys in the pic below!! I was then informed by my wife that the new pullover was for wearing tomorrow to the game. It was pretty cool, she had this ruse going that her family had already planned for us all to be at their place because her grandmother is in town. I was told there would be lots of food, but that they'd have the game on and I could watch it however I see fit. Turns out, they were all in on it and they're watching the kiddos while the wife and I go to the game. YES!!! Side note -- anyone taking the DART Green rail, which station is closer to the stadium? The Fair Park station or the MLK station?

We need our new AD out there shaking hands and kissing babies right now. Maybe Hank is filling the void?
  14. In the five years since the University of North Texas’s Apogee Stadium opened, the $78 million home base for the Mean Green has seemed like a complete waste. UNT’s football team is about as functional as putting an orange in a keyhole to open a door. But even if UNT isn’t breaking records on the football field (last season the team won exactly one game), it is setting the curve for sustainability. Apogee Stadium is “the first newly constructed collegiate football stadium in the nation to achieve the highest level of LEED certification,” or LEED Platinum. Leading the way in sustainability, environmental research, and energy consumption is a wonderful achievement for any university. And it looks like using football as a conduit to accomplish tangible milestones (which, apparently, doesn’t include a winning team) seems to be a trend that suits UNT nicely. UNT is in the beginning stages of entering an exclusive agreement with the Dallas Cowboys, which certainly raises some eyebrows considering the game of football is bleak in Denton. Nevertheless, the collaboration looks like it could be particularly valuable for the school’s academics. Last Thursday and Friday, UNT’s Board of Regents discussed and voted on whether or not the University of North Texas System Chancellor Lee Jackson and President Neal Smatresk would be allowed to draw up a deal with the Cowboys without the board’s oversight. Unanimously, the board voted yes. The deal is in its infancy and certainly subject to change, but the potential terms see UNT paying the Cowboys $1 million or more in order to become a “Proud Partner of the Dallas Cowboys.” According to a meeting memo, this would allow UNT to use the “team’s star and other primary logos; a blend of digital in-stadium, in restaurant and concourse advertising at The Ford Center and AT&T Stadium; digital mixed-use exterior banner and highway marquee advertising; select event exhibit space; game-day radio spots; preseason network and Jason Garrett show televised commercials; and a microsite and ads on the DallasCowboys.com web site.” - See more at: http://www.texasmonthly.com/the-daily-post/unt-cowboys-partnership/#sthash.W1O7qGAc.dpuf Here is a link to the UNT memo on this subject: http://static.texastribune.org/media/documents/05.19.-20.16_Board_Book.pdf

  16. Johnson reportedly waffling: After pledging to TU last month, Alto (Texas) athlete Keenen Johnson has also been considering North Texas following the hiring of Seth Littrell, according to the Denton (Texas) Record-Chronicle. “I am finalizing my decision,” Johnson told the newspaper. “I want to talk it over with my family and take my official visits. I am considering Tulsa and North Texas. I can’t say right now who I am leaning towards more.” read more: http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/tusportsextra/tu-recruiting-notebook-latest-offers-include-sapulpa-rb-dae-williams/article_3a20b116-1703-5d6b-93a0-8cd0e88cf928.html Make sure and check out this article link as I think we will battle Tulsa for other OK prospects. There are some other players listed there that might be good targets for us.
  17. While I have a feeling I'm probably the only Jew on this board, I would like to wish Mean Green Nation a Happy Hanukkah. I feel it very apt that on this first night of the Festival of Lights, the man upstairs (or some rich donors, whichever your beliefs) granted us a man whose offense is designed to "light" up the scoreboard in Coach Littrell. Looking forward to the day where we in Mean Green Nation can state the same message that is on a dreidel (the spinning top compulsive Jewish gamblers bet with instead of the sports books) which is 4 letters that are an abbreviation of the phrase that in English, means "A Great Miracle Happened There" (In Denton, Texas, America) Go Mean Green.
  18. North Texas: Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports some names in the mix at UNT include Baylor offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Kendal Briles, Arizona State offensive coordinator / quarterbacks / deputy head coach Mike Norvell and James Madison head coach Everett Withers. http://coachingsearch.com/coaching-search-ticker Have to say like Everett Withers.. Lots of experience a big time programs with big time coaches, and head coaching experience.

    Rosenmueller Sets Freshman Golf Record

  20. The Vikings went into the North Dakota game having relied heavily on the run and without having showed a lot in the passing game — and not much changed. PSU had trouble throwing the ball, other than Kuresa’s 76-yard TD slant pass-and-run to fleet Grant High graduate Paris Penn on the team’s first play from scrimmage. North Dakota was playing to stop the run first, which led to PSU gaining only 97 yards on 30 carries. “When that’s happening, we need to throw the football better,” Barnum says. “When there’s eight or nine (defenders) in the box, two more than us, we have to distribute to our receivers until we loosen you up.” By loading up defensively near the line of scrimmage, North Dakota was locked into playing man-to-man coverage on Portland State’s receivers, and the Vikings couldn’t make them pay for it. “If someone’s going to go man against us consistenly, we’ve got to throw the football and get them back into zone,” Barnum says. “This game is simple: If they’re in man, throw it. In zone, run it. That’s football 101. I’ve talked to (offensive coordinator) Steve Cooper about how we have to improve that part of our game.” Overall, when it comes to run-pass, “we need to get to 50-50,” Barnum says. Through four games, the Vikings are at 75 percent run, 25 percent pass. The Vikings suffered one key injury in the North Dakota game, losing standout cornerback Aaron Sibley to a pulled hamstring. Sibley, also a key contributor on special teams, has had problems with that in the past, and the Vikings went into the week waiting to see if scar tissue was the issue this time and could be treated enough for him to get back on the field at North Texas. North Texas quarterback Andrew McNulty is a 6-1, 210-pound senior from Iowa City, Iowa (North Texas coach Dan McCarney is an Iowa graduate who used to coach there and at Iowa State). McNulty has completed 60 of 126 passes (47.6 percent) for 699 yards and three touchdowns in the Mean Green’s 0-4 start, with four interceptions. View full article
  21. I'm three hours away so I can't but a few of you have talked about the BS Mac spews both post-interview and at the Coaches Show. Is there any time for questions and answers at the show? Would be nice to have a few on the board go up and ask Mac those questions we constantly pose on here, and give him the understanding that we see through his schtick.
