  1. Coaches like UTSA's Jeff Traylor, North Texas head coach Seth Littrell and Texas State's Jake Spavital view the transfer portal as way to improve roster, chances at success in 2022 college football season. Listen to a press conference or sports radio or the loud voices on Twitter and it’d be easy to think that the advent of the transfer portal is sure to damage college football, especially at the G5 level. But most of the coaches, at least in Texas, disagree. The transfer portal presents new challenges, and it isn’t a perfect system, but many head coaches argue that their rosters have never been as talented. The sky isn’t falling. The game of football isn’t dying. Like most changes, the outcry outweighs the outcomes. The seven G5 programs in Texas added an average of 9.7 transfers to its programs between the end of the 2021 season and the beginning of fall camp in 2022. SMU led the way with 17. UTEP was the lowest with one, but the Miners did add nine JUCO players to the roster. Of the 68 incoming transfers at the G5 programs in Texas, 43 came from the Power Five level. That’s 63 percent. The talent is trickling down more often than it is bolting for greener pastures. And the more successful and attractive programs are attracting the best talent, and retaining its starters. The foursome of SMU, Houston, UTSA, and Rice brought in 43 transfers with 35 arriving from Power Five Programs (81.3 percent). Those four teams went 36-16 last season. Take away Rice and the three remaining schools went 32-8. Rice's academic reputation and a few more hires on the recruiting staff helped the Owls keep pace. The trio of North Texas, UTEP, and Texas State combined to go 17-21 in 2021. Only eight of the 25 transfers signed by those three schools arrived from Power Five programs (32 percent). read more: https://www.texasfootball.com/article/2022/08/17/in-state-g5-coaches-view-transfer-portal-as-a-net-positive?ref=article_preview_img
  2. http://www.frogsowar.com/2013/1/20/3893222/frog-abroad-lets-play-the-university-of-north-texas In this article the writer call UNT a medium size public university. So even when someone 35 miles down the road from UNT is trying to campaign for it in a positive way even they make UNT smaller than it actually is. There are well over 125 public universities in USA and we are some where between 25th and 30th largest. (I have consistently heard 25th other places). So if you were in the top 20% of your graduating class would you call yourself an average student? If this is how a person that has taken a little time to research UNT as a football program thinks of UNT what do you think recruits think of UNT when they have barely heard of it?

  5. I have a challenge for you all. You've probably seen the Keep Austin Weird shirts: You've probably also seen the Keep Denton Beard shirts: As a showing of solidarity and focus on beating UT on August 30th, I challenge you to put down that razor and let those beards grow until game day. I mean really, who has time for shaving when our focus should be preparing for the kickoff to the 2014 season. I propose we get our beards started no later than May 30th. 3 months of growth should look pretty dang good. When people ask you about your change in facial follicles, use the opportunity to spread the word of your support for the Mean Green. Tell your friends, alert the media, spread the word... Let's win the challenge of Beard vs. Weird. Note: Ladies, please show your support by pushing the men in your life to participate in this challenge. Don't change your own grooming habits...really not needed.
  6. 6'3 220. Offered by UNT & UTSA. Listed as a WR on scout, but his highlight tape is mostly him playing DE and a little TE. http://northtexas.scout.com/a.z?s=353&p=8&c=1&nid=7022541 http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1802225/myles-mouton
  7. First, I think Kay Bailer Hutchison is/was an amazing Senator. She really exemplified the pre-2000s style of politician in being able to debate and come to compromise, not stall and indignantly hold up Congress. And thus, I'm morbidly horrified of the Republican nominee to fill her place in Ted Cruz. All he ever appears to offer is the place of vitriolic tea partier lap dog. This then gets me actually pumped to learn more and more of the Democratic challenger, Paul Sadler. He has a brilliant record in our state of being able to do the sort of work that Hutchison did at the Federal level and is much closer to what the political landscape should be: give me centrism over isolationism any day of the week. And then all of a sudden DMN: http://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/editorials/20121018-editorial-we-recommend-paul-sadler-for-u.s.-senate.ece Coming from them....just woah. So, what does GoMeanGreen think about this race, one that I believe has a lot more at stake for Texans than the Presidential one does?
  8. Obama during the debate is like our Mean Green football team during a football game. No offense.
  9. theres a sophomore qb in valley view we should take a look at. looks like he could be good for us, and supposedly he's gonna go to one of our camps in july. http://www.hudl.com/athlete/521518/#highlights/2115409
  10. Who are our prospects at quarterback for the 2014 recruiting class?
