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…

2019: North Texas at Louisiana Tech Preview

Last year in Denton, this battle was played before a record Apogee crowd and contested by equals. This season North Texas comes in the clear underdog. We have noted all season that reasonable fans should have expected to see an unbalanced team with a powerful offense and a young inexperienced defense. That has mostly held…

Mason Fine threw seven touchdown passes, including two in the first couple of minutes as the Mean Green proceeded to handle UTEP easily on Homecoming. The Miners kept it closer-than-expected, but there was never really a point where NT looked like they would be too troubled. This makes two weeks in a row that NT…

We Need To Beat UTEP, and There Is Still Hope

North Texas is currently scoring at will against UTEP, but the Miners are also scoring at will (on special teams) against our Mean Green*. *Seemingly. Over on CUSAReport, there is a post that shows you who you should root for. Essentially, North Texas needs to win out, and hope Tech loses once more and USM…

Queen City Let Down: North Texas 38 Charlotte 39

Mason Fine threw for 5 TDs but it was not enough. NT needed two more points to win this thing and they were not there. This was the best offensive effort in some weeks for Mason Fine and HC Seth Littrell, but the defense was shredded late by a Charlotte team in its first year…
