109 years of UNT football


Recommended Posts

109 years ago today, the North Texas State Normal football team took the field for the first time when they played TCU. It was a rainy day , and TCU shut out North Texas on a 13-0 final score. North Texas was coached by J.W. Pender and TCU was coached by Fred Cahoon. Here's to 5 fabulous seasons of UNT football!

They had been using Green and white since about 1907. One student remembered that  "Someone suggested Mother Nature would be kind to those using her colors". 

So, we've had "those" students since the turn of the last century.

When I first came here there was a pool out there between the union and library, no water in it, but none the less.

Swam there as a kid.  They closed it when they determined it was too shallow for a high dive.  Seems they could have just lowered the high dive and kept the pool.  Nice scenery back in the day.
