Class of 2020 National Signing Day

This year’s class was nowhere near as hyped as the ones from previous years when it was something of a novelty to get a good class on signing day. NT last year tried to sign everyone but this year they still have “three or four” scholarships to fill. The fans at GoMeanGreen.com, the forum of…

Seth Littrell Hires Clint Bowen as new Defensive Coordinator

Last time we hired Clint Bowen to be the defensive coordinator we said “Seriously, the guy has some skins on the wall and looks to be a solid hire. Excited to see what he can do.” That is generic praise and I was but a youngin’ then and what did I truly know? He went…

House Cleaning: Seth Littrell Fires Bodie Reeder and Troy Reffett

“It is difficult any time we don’t meet our own expectations as coaches and this was one of those years.

Mason Fine is the linchpin, and he has not finished something like four games this season due to injury. It is easy to become “entitled”…

North Texas Loses To Tech 52-17, Mason Fine Injured

For any shot at a division title or a reasonable bowl appearance, North Texas had to beat Tech in Ruston. They accomplished that feat two seasons ago in a tough game that ended with a missed field goal. This season, they were beat up, but feeling good after two incredible offensive performances against two of…

North Texas down 17-3 at the Half vs Louisiana Tech

Mason Fine only has 48 yards passing and zero touchdowns after throwing 12 in two games against the league’s worst teams. Tech is decidedly better, as we wrote this week. The good news is that there is still hope, and despite the 14-point disadvantage, the game is within striking distance. The mistakes have mostly been…
