Gut Punch: Ark St Win at the Buzzer

I couldn’t even stand to write anything about this game. Right now all I could stand is to show you the video. Chris Jones was blocked (fouled?) on a shot that he made just seconds before to put us in the lead. Then this happened:

North Texas 78 South Alabama 73

I don’ t know why I feel like I have a personal rivalry with USA. I found myself looking forward to watching this game as I left the parking lot this evening. I was about to tweet something when I asked myself, “why?” The answer? Dunno. That still escapes me. I only saw the first… Read more »

UALR Wins Again

I missed this one too. It’s a bad habit I’ve been developing and I mean to stop it dead. I gathered what I could from this thread, Vito’s blog¬†, and Mean Green Premium to say this: 1. We need a better fucking stream on MGP, dammit. 2. This loss was a bad one. 3. Chris… Read more »

Happy Tony Mitchell Day!

The day has arrived. It has been a long short season so far. Every win (four) and every loss (five) have been prefaced and analysed with Tony Mitchell’s absence. It is all justified. Chris Jones has been good –but how good can he be with ¬†Tony Mitchell running the lane? Jordan Williams has been good… Read more »

North Texas 53 Sam Houston 50

Katfans dot com or dot org or whatever are a hearty little band of shit-talkers. A part of me, I do not know which, respects them. Another part, the evil, spiteful, arrogant bastard that reduces the amount of a tip when I get poor or spiteful service, wants bad things to happen to their sports… Read more »

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 »
