Big guys shag punts to cap spring practice

Recommended Posts

North Texas reached the finish line when it comes to spring practice in light-hearted fashion Tuesday afternoon.

The Mean Green sent out their lumbering offensive and defensive linemen and a few coaches to catch punts lofted high in the air.

The exercise provided a final few laughs and a nice sendoff for the Mean Greens players after a spring full of challenges, perhaps none bigger than adjusting to new offensive and defensive schemes.

The quarterback race that was won, at least for now, by senior Andrew McNulty stole the headlines, but there is little doubt that how UNT adapts to new schemes also will be vital to UNTs prospects.

As alumn and Mean Green fans we have to evaluate how much money we make and then decide what level of support we can afford to give towards supporting the Mean Green. We have to decide if we are even going to support them at all? Is it worth it? Are we going on vacation? How much is our house payment? Do the kids have a college plan to pay for? , What are the results? What improvement did we make? What questions remain? Are we going to stay the family course and strive to be the best providers we can be for them? Or are we going to hold back a little and give to the Mean Green? Did we work overtime this spring? Did we set a bit of it off to the side for the fall? Or did we blow it all on bills, piano lessons and braces for the kids? Can we do better? Can we strive to take on even more debt, or are we going to pack it up and curl into a fetal position and give in to the the pressure and allow our wife to purchase that new purse or pair of shoes? The questions lay before us. Are we willing to pay the price to find the answer to those questions? That's what we have to find out this coming fall and go forward with our plan to strive to be the best we can be.

Word.

1-200 dollars annually is nothing. I'm certain that even the most unfortunate can swing that if budgeted correctly. If 1-200 dollars can't be given then surely the new $25 donation can be handled. If not, then don't worry about giving because that person has far more to worry about than donating. Donate! And GMG.

      It wasn’t too long ago when Erick Evans was the talk of practice at UNT.

      The former Seagoville standout arrived from the Air Force Academy’s prep school and made a name for himself in spring practice a year ago.

      Now Evans is gone.

      The sophomore has elected to transfer. I will have a notebook in tomorrow’s paper that goes over some of what took place in the last couple of days around the UNT athletic department. That story will include quite a bit on Evans, who I talked to today.

      The teams in Conference USA West Division have all wrapped up spring drills and their spring games in the last few weeks.

      I am a big advocate of not over reacting to the outcome of spring games, but one can at least get a sense of where teams might be headed in the fall from what takes place. One can also get an idea of who the key players will be for each team in the conference.

      We have talked a ton about UNT over the last few weeks. Andrew McNulty is in position to hold on to the starting quarterback job heading into the Mean Green’s opener at SMU. There is a chance that JUCO transfer DaMarcus Smith could become academically eligible, beat McNulty out in the span of just a few practices in the fall and convince coach Dan McCarney/offensive coordinator Mike Canales to start him even though he really hasn’t had a lot of time to prove himself.

      North Texas faced a host of challenges in spring practice from an unsettled quarterback situation to adjusting to a new defensive coordinator.

      The Mean Green made progress toward meeting those challenges by the time practice wrapped up Tuesday.

      What was even more encouraging for coach Dan McCarney than the headway UNT made was the way the Mean Green handled the process after a disappointing 4-8 season.

      I like being around this team, McCarney said. I have been saying it all winter and spring long. There is a real renewed commitment to excellence. We want to get back to winning. No matter how tough the schedule is or where we play or who we play, lets find a way to win games in the fall.
