  1. 1). Consistently competing in and winning football games. We got a taste of this in 2013. This will not happen overnight, but I do expect to see us have a much better 2016 season. 2). Getting a signature win. We had a good first half against Georgia in 2013, but truthfully - this program has not seen a signature win since the Tennessee win back in the Fry era. This has to happen at some point if we expect to jump start our fan following. 3). Fill Apogee. This is an albatross hanging over the neck of the program right now. If Littrell could make it happen it would be a defining moment
  2. Hindsight is 20/20, but a recent discussion with a Mean Green fan reminded me of the flaw in Mac's definition of "Mean Green Football". "Mean Green Football" to Mac was relying on the other team to make more mistakes whether it be turnovers etc. His conservative offense played into this. His bend not break defense did as well. Frankly, the turnover battle is something every team in the country is aware of and prepares for. I look at the best teams, heck even that Portland State team that thrashed us, and I see AGGRESSIVE offense and ATTACKING defense. If you execute these properly, and get
  3. “Andrew McNulty is our starter,” McCarney said. “I was really disappointed in the consistency of DaMarcus Smith when we did give him an opportunity. He does have talent, but the attention to detail is something he needs to make major, major improvement on. If he does, then he has a chance to contend for the top spot. If he doesn’t, we will get what we saw the other night.” Smith made one of the biggest plays of the night for UNT when he hit Carlos Harris on a deep ball for 61 yards. The junior couldn’t build on that throw and finished the night 3-for-11 for 70 yards. Smith threw an interceptio
  4. We are not alone!! Four FBS teams are 0-fer: Kansas, NMSU, Wyoming and UNT. The other good news is that historically almost no one goes 0-12. Also - Jeffery Wilson had another good game! Go Mean Green!
  5. Look - we had some very disappointing losses the first three weeks of the 2015 season. No sugarcoating-- it sucks. No we weren't supposed to beat Iowa but we had hoped for a better showing (ala Georgia etc). It didn't happen. SMU and Rice were winnable. The "Go Mean Green" banner we flew over Ford is gathering dust and tattered in AAUNT's garage. People are unhappy on here and I can relate. Our fans are passionate -- they see the potential and want results. I get it. Back 5-10 years ago we had a different mentality and a much smaller conference and budget. As meanrob pointed out, ti

  7. UNT ranks 128th in defense on 3rd down. This means, we give up first downs on 3rd down more often than any other team in the country. UT ranks 127th. This per Dallas Morning News. The 3rd and 20 Rice conversion play sticks out in my mind from Saturday... but there have been WAY too many similar type plays this season. It appears that Cosh is moving into a semi-prevent on 3rd downs, often with a standard rush package. Perhaps we need to rethink this strategy?
  8. Since UNT fell to SMU 31-13 on Saturday we have beaten the dead horse that is what ails the Mean Green’s offense and then beaten it some more. What we haven’t talked a whole lot about is the performance of UNT’s defense that was one of the bright spots of what transpired down at Ford Stadium. No one is in much of a mood to talk about what went well, but it is worth noting that the Mean Green showed some signs of potential on that side of the ball. UNT held SMU to three points on three trips inside the 5-yard line, posted a goal-line stand and generally looked pretty solid before collapsing lat
  9. I would love to know what our record, say in the last 10-20 years is in "opportunity" games. I define these as games where you can take a step forward as a program and move the chains in terms of fan support, recruiting and outside respectability. Saturday night was a great example of an "opportunity" game that could have really put some wind behind our sails. Games that have good UNT crowds are opportunity games. I think games that open up the season and set fan expectations whether at home or on the road are often opportunity games. UT last year was another opportunity game, not that I exp
  10. It seems as if the North Texas Mean Green football team lost sight of its talent last year. After finishing an astonishing 2013 season with a 9-4 record and reaching their first bowl game in almost 10 years under head coach Dan McCarney, the program plummeted in 2014. In ’13, the UNT football squad was laced with 22 seniors, a group of guys who impacted the Mean Green program with experience in all phases. McCarney, who will be going into his fourth season with North Texas, will be looking to do whatever it takes to make sure his inexperienced young talent is prepared with a winning attitude
  11. DENTON — The temperature pushed up toward 100 degrees at Apogee Stadium this spring as Chris Cosh bounced around from drill to drill, watching the members of North Texas’ defense sweat through another workout. Cosh barked instructions while laying out the basic principles of his defense, clearly in his element heading into his first season as UNT’s defensive coordinator. “Coach Cosh is a character and is tough on you, but we need it,” UNT linebacker Fred Scott said. “He pushes us and knows what he’s doing. He’s been a lot of places and knows what he’s talking about.” The journey includes stops
  12. Sights and sounds from day 1 of fall camp. This is an example of the direction BTG will be heading in conjunction with GMG. The idea is to provide this type of video content and much, much more. On our most recent podcast we lined out the details, so if you haven't already, give it a listen. Hopefully everyone enjoys this clip and is eager to see more down the road. Don't forget that I will be in the chat room this evening (starting at 8:00 pm) to discuss the scrimmage and will also be able to answer any questions regarding the future of BTG. I should be posting another video tomorrow
  13. Is it just me or does the start of this season seem to be taking damn near forever to get here? Jees we still have 22 days before a game. That's 3 weeks for goodness sakes.
  14. The senior came out of the scrimmage just like he went into it — UNT’s starter. “Every opportunity Andy Mac is getting right now, he keeps getting better and better,” McCarney said. “He’s going to be hard to beat out. Not impossible, but if he stays healthy and keeps executing like he has this first week he will be hard to beat because he is really sharp.” McCarney said he has been impressed with Smith’s athleticism but said he is way behind UNT’s other quarterbacks. Smith quickly moved up to share the third line on the depth chart with Connor Means, but he still has a long way to go with the
  15. none have more than Texas. For 12 days, as teams nationwide dig into preseason drills, USA TODAY Sports’ college football reporters are traversing the state of Texas and visiting each of its one dozen FBS programs. AT&T presents Two Weeks in Texas … Day 6: North Texas DENTON, Texas — Mike Canales and Mike Simmonds came to visit Kaydon Kirby in the fall of 2011 with reams of information about North Texas, then in its first football season under Dan McCarney, but without the item Kirby wanted most: a scholarship offer. Instead, they brought honesty. We like you, they told Kirby, then a unde

  17. Hear me out. We take care of business against SMU to start the season 1-0. Tough game, closer than last year but a W. Next we are able to beat Rice at home in front of a big opening day crowd at Apogee. Very tough game but we pull it out at the end. 2-0 We take on Iowa on the road and lose but we play them respectable...make it tough, make it a hard fought win. 2-1 Hit the road again for a win against Southern Miss, honestly a team we should have beaten last season. 3-1 Back home for an easy win against Portland State. 4-1 Oct 15th we have a Thursday game against WKU who are probably the
  18. - deepest condolences to Ratliff family at Charlotte - great summer grades, were phenomenal finishing up summer 2 session now. Academics is meaningful and we don't anticipate - Xavier Grindle did not make it academically - Florida LB took his spot - keep refreshing as I am updating as I can (Harry) - Lou Carrela did a great job in conditioning. Lou has team in best shape since I've been here. - can't wait to get it going. Very excited about this season. - Has been around the program more this summer than at any other time. Very pleased with the effort and development he has witnessed. - e
  19. Guy has not played a down in a game for us yet but, I have to say -- he has the look of a very good player for us. He is one of the bigger, stronger looking defensive backs physically I have seen at UNT and that puts him in some good company. He gets overshadowed by guys like DaMarcus Smith and others but he may be the one who could make the biggest impact, at least initially, since he will likely start. In last seasons loss against UTSA to end the season, we started Sheldon Wade and Laramie Lee. Obviously Lee was injured the entire year. I think we could look back and say that James Gray a
