North Texas vs. Ohio Game Stats


Recommended Posts

This game was plagued by ugly football. If it were not for some sloppy play and penalties by Ohio, the score could have been MUCH worse.

My summation:

- O line supposed to be our strength....

1 - 2.7 yards per carry...pitiful

2 - two penalties on #64

3 - #71 is supposed to be a pro prospect...saw many plays where his man ran right by him.

4 - Ohio D line was able to get off their blocks so easy, our O line did not stay engaged and finish blocks

5 - DT did not have the time to pass that he has in the past

- DT play

1 - was not as sharp / accurate with his passes as he was last week...several balls were behind, over the head or over thrown

2 - pressed the ball into bad coverages

- skills

1 - I thought Pegram was supposed to be a power back.......

2 - if the ball is within arms length, it should be a catch

Play calling

1 - even the hack announcers on ESPN3 commented on not throwing the ball on 1st down

2 - on 3rd and 5-8 yds, instead of trying to get enough for the first, we go for a "homerun" ball. use an intermediate pass long enough to get the first down.

3 - with less than two minutes left in the game and we are backed up to our around our 10, Ohio in prevent rushing 3, we run a screen pass???

Defense:

D line:

1 - Our D line was driven so far back, it cut off pursuit of our LBrs....and they did not get off of blocks

2 - we could not pressure Ohio qb with our front 4...had to blitz to get pressure.

3 - #90 was on "skates" all night

4 - Sarge...did injuries keep him off the field? When he was in, he was very effective.

LBrs:

1 - could not evaluate because the Dline was being driven back into their cut off lanes

2 - ZORR...missed tackles, bad fills

DBs:

1 - dropped 2 pic opportunities right in their hands

2 - terrible cut off angles...ALL NIGHT

WE HAVE TO STOP GIVING UP SO MANY BIG PLAYS!!! If i were any team, I go deep against our secondary on the first play every game....they seem to be sleeping and get a late wake up call that the game started.

Coaching:

1 - not aggresive in play calling like we were last week...very few blitz's. Did not see any corner blitz (refer to last year LSU game when our CB knocked out the

LSU qb

2 - with just over 2 minutes left in the game, we have 3 timeouts and we allowed the clock to run off without calling a timeout.

I know this Ohio team is much better than last weeks Idaho team...but our fundamentals sucked...blocking, tackling, running and passing and UNT were two different teams from last weeks fundamentals to this week. This was a game that we could have, should have won. Now the Ball state game becomes a must win game. Before the season started, I hoped for 3-1 non conference schedule...looking at a likely 2-2. We cannot go 1-3 in non conf. and with Ball St coming into town 2-0...we have to over achieve this week.

This team needs consistency, persistency, intensity.

If we want to go to a bowl, Ball is a must win.

Great post Truss. You reminded me of this as well, if it is 3rd and long we either go for a Hail Mary or we throw it 3 yards behind the first down marker??

This was not the offensive lines best game -- you have to give Ohio some credit there as well.

Two things I will put at the foot of the coaches; them scoring on the first play of the game after what transpired against Idaho last week is just inexcusable. That takes the wind out of the entire team to allow that to happen on the road and no I will not blame the player on that because the defense he was placed in exposed him to that type of play. So don't blame our player for that Mac it ain't right... gives a team that was embarrassed last week immediate life. Hard to let that one go by.

The other thing is Skladany's refusal to blitz early in the game. He waits until we are literally on life support in the 4th quarter and actually starts to put some blitz pressure on their QB. By that point our defense is gassed and Ohio is just trying to run out the clock as Solich teams will do.

      Dan McCarney talked a lot about change in the days leading up to North Texas’ season opener two weeks ago now.
      And UNT’s head coach wasn’t the only one.

      Players and school officials hinted at this year being the beginning of something new for UNT, which switched everything from conferences to uniforms, well at least for one game, in its 100th anniversary season.

      In the end, that was the toughest aspect of the way UNT’s game against Ohio unfolded late Saturday night.

      UNT had a chance to show that it is indeed a new era, and let it slip away in a 27-21 loss that had an all-too-familiar feel for the Mean Green.

      UNT had an opportunity to knock off a nationally respected opponent late in the second half, had a shot to win back-to-back games for the first time since 2004 and couldn’t capitalize — again.

      The Mean Green is now 0-23 in games following a win in the last nine seasons.

      “We are really close and are closing the gap on some really fine programs, but we won’t accept it,” McCarney said following the loss. “It’s not OK to lose. It’s a horrible feeling.”

      The situation made that feeling even worse for the Mean Green.

      UNT is desperate to show the program isn’t what it has been for the past several years. The 10 wins UNT has posted over its past 26 games, including a 40-6 shellacking of Idaho to open the season, show that the Mean Green is improving.

      UNT is just working its way out of a really dark era in its history.

      ATHENS, Ohio — North Texas followed up one of its finest offensive performances in recent years last week with a tough night in a loss to Ohio.

      UNT struggled early in Saturday’s game to cash in on key opportunities and couldn’t quite finish a comeback in a 27-21 loss to the Bobcats.

      UNT turned the ball over four times and finished with 299 yards just one week after rolling up 591 yards in a 40-6 win over Idaho.

      Ohio linebacker Javon Johnson intercepted a pass from UNT quarterback Derek Thompson and returned it 42 yards for a touchdown. That was just one of a few mistakes that came back to haunt UNT.

      “We made some critical errors and big mistakes and a couple of turnovers,” UNT head coach Dan McCarney said. “The interception for a touchdown, if we get a little more air under it we might have had a touchdown. It was a 14-point swing. A little better throw, it could have been a touchdown.”

      Thompson finished with 195 yards and two touchdowns on a night UNT struggled to run the ball, finishing with 104 yards on 38 carries.

      Ohio limited Brelan Chancellor to one reception for 33 yards just one week after he finished with six catches for 135 yards against Idaho.

      UNT (1-1) came back from a 14-point first-half deficit to tie the game up, only to see the Bobcats (1-1) methodically chew up the clock and choke the life out of the Mean Green.

      Ohio rolled 10 minutes and 20 seconds off the clock in the fourth quarter on 10- and 11-play drives that both ended in field goals.

      “That is a winning formula by a team that knows how to win and has won consistently over the years,” McCarney said. “It’s the mark of a good team. We are closing the gap on some really fine programs, but it’s not OK to lose. It’s a horrible feeling.”

      UNT came into the night looking to start 2-0 for the first time since the 1994 season and win back-to-back games for the first time since 2004.

      UNT appeared as if might reach those milestones heading into the fourth quarter.
