North Texas is 1-4: Longhorns 73 UNT 57

There were 9,488 of us at that place tonight. How many heard the public address guy call us North Texas State two or three times? Eff that guy. You know what? He has to listen to the corny-ass music that Texas band plays throughout the game so at least he gets his. We lost. That… Read more »

Blowout: Mississippi State 82 North Texas 59

It was a terrible watch. Though it never reached forty points like last time out it was terrible. Much of the same problems that plagued the Mean Green in Arlington on the Stage followed them to Starkville at the Humphrey. Vito had a good point before and after the game about scoring. UNT has been… Read more »

UT-Arlingon 97 North Texas 64: Beatdown

That was the worst loss in Johnny Jones history. What happened? Lot’s of things. We could break it down and analyze the exact scenarios that led to getting down by forty effing points in the first half. Lots of turnovers and poor shooting. That wasn’t what did it. This squad just got punched in the… Read more »

Bozeman Rips Out Our Collective Heart

I told those around me, whomever was listening, that we needed to defend the three at all costs. I even tweeted it. Unfortunately, that didn’t help the situation. Surely Johnny Jones, he of the five straight 20-win seasons knew the situation and had a plan. No doubt that plan was to not allow Bozeman or… Read more »

WKU Vanquished

Another game, another win, another Tristan Thompson scoring display. The dude is going to win the tournament’s most outstanding player award without question. He has 80 points through three games and is going to best the tournament record 82. Yeah. We got our shit together again. Through the grainy feed that was espn3, I was… Read more »

Thirty Six Points

Let me start by apologizing for my absence. Life has been bothering me and asking me to do things. I have complied, however unhappily, with the demands and have managed to carve out some time for important things like writing about North Texas basketball this morning. I hope it will suffice for now. Tristan Thompson… Read more »

Arkansas State Exacts Revenge 63 – 47

I was playing the semifinal game of our little indoor soccer league when North Texas was succumbing to fatigue (I suppose) and the defense of Arkansas State at the Convocation Center. We won by the way. Browsing through Vito’s running blog (dude needs a twitter account) I relived the game in all of the glory that one… Read more »

ULM 82 UNT 75 February 19, 2011

The Loss Proper Oh hell. Oh hell. The shame of losing to the team with the worst record in the conference is nigh unbearable. North Texas was the second conference victim and the seventh overall on the year for the Warhawks of Louisiana-Monroe. Disappointing as it was, it was not surprising in the least. I… Read more »

A Win Is A Win: USA vs UNT

Full disclosure: I left at halftime. Not because I was anti-basketball nor because it wasn’t entertaining. No, I had my own sporting adventure to partake in. So, I missed the mini-comeback that was the win vs USA. After typing that abbreviation I finally understand the Team USA inspired threads they were rocking out there.
