I know words. I have the second best words. I'm usually wrong, but let's assume I'm right.

UTEP vs North Texas Halftime Notes

The offense has gone heavy uptempo and heavy pass against UTEP this game. With the help of a special teams fumble recovery, Mason Fine scored three touchdown passes in less than three minutes of play in the first quarter. This is what the uptempo offense has hoped to be all season. The major factor in…

North Texas vs Middle Tennessee Half-Time Notes

North Texas has made it a tough game for themselves. The defense has given the offense enough opportunities to put some distance on Middle Tennessee, but the offense has not taken advantage. The offense has been slow to adjust to Middle Tennessee’s pressure. North Texas leads 17-16. Fine marched the team down the field to…

NT vs Houston: Half-time Notes

North Texas moved the ball in the first series against Houston, but stalls out midfield. That was North Texas most successful series until a field goal in the second quarter. Houston then took over the quarter, putting pressure on the North Texas offensive line. UNT’s plays developed too slowly for Mason Fine to get a…

UAB Rushing Attack

The UAB rushing attack is a proven commodity. UAB has accumulated 1,396 yards on 275 carries, is top 25 in rushing yards per game in the nation, and is second only to FAU in C-USA in that category. UAB runs the ball nearly league-best 46 times a game and passes it league worst 24 times…

North Texas Spring Game 2018

There were many changes in North Texas’ 2018 spring game. Most importantly, we couldn’t call it the Green & White game since the offense was wearing white, and the defense was wearing black. Additionally, there was a feeling of hope upon a foundation that has been built over the past two seasons. We were no…

North Texas Rush Defense

Editor’s Note: This was written prior to the UTEP game and the laziness on the part of the editor means that this is late. Earlier in the season, we wrote about the North Texas defense and their early downs success. That was unfortunately written prior to the evisceration by FAU. No matter. Against the conference,…

Eastbound (& Downs Success)

The emotions have settled (a little) after a thrilling victory over UTSA which put North Texas at 3-0 in conference play. While North Texas was able to go up early in that game, they struggled to move the ball on offense, as UTSA controlled the ball for the next two quarters. To close the game,…

Mason Fine: Improvement from Year 1 to Year 2

True Freshman, Detective. North Texas quarterback Mason Fine was both hyped and rebuked throughout his true freshman campaign. His first year was filled with memorable moments of moxie, playmaking, and Fine-dozing – including an 80-yard touchdown run to start the second half against UTSA. That same game was filled with forgettable freshman moments – including…

Room for Improvement?

After coming off the high of North Texas’ 43-28 victory, let’s take a step back and critically review some aspects of the game. No fluff, just my notes. Positives During the first three non-conference games, North Texas converted 28% offensive third downs. That’s not good. Over these last two conference games, North Texas has converted…

Jeffrey Wilson vs Army: Examples of Success

Earlier in the preseason, we took a look at 2015 Jeff Wilson to try and be excited at 2016 Jeff Wilson. Boy has he delivered or what? Wilson is sitting at 724 yards on 108 carries, and 12 rushing touchdowns. This includes a combined 50 yards against Florida and MTSU. In North Texas’ 4 wins,…
