Late start to season cutting down on number of bye weeks


Recommended Posts

North Texas has one of the nation's quirkier schedules.

The Mean Green begin the season with a bye, so they'll be at home watching while everyone else is playing after a nine-month wait. Then, after opening the season at Southern Methodist on Sept. 12, North Texas will play 12 straight games after adding a nonconference game at Tennessee on Nov. 12.

"This is the first time I've gone 12 in a row; there's always been a break," North Texas coach Don McCarney said. "That won't happen again, but that's what we've got this season and we've got to play it out, hopefully find a way to be successful."

Rich Rodriguez has a similar outlook.

"We didn't choose 12 in a row," he said. "But as I said, I'm not going to complain about it after today unless we're not winning, and then I'm going to complain about it quite a bit."
