NT 7 LSU 24- First Half Update

Alright. I’ll admit that I was over-hyped for this game. Honestly, I felt that LSU had a lot more talent and speed but that they can struggle on offense. I wasn’t too far off. They had a couple offensive series that made them look dangerous but North Texas was hitting them in the mouth and…

Spring Game 2012 From Afar

I watched some of the spring game today. You see, instead of making the trip up to Denton this weekend, I spent my money and time at the Oyster Bake eating and drinking and laughing. A good time was had here. From all accounts, a good time was had at Apogee, as well. The Green…

LANCE! North Texas 59 MTSU 7

Lance Dunbar ran for 313 yards on 40 carries to become the all-time leading rusher in North Texas history. He passed Patrick Cobbs sometime in the second quarter. He needed only 140 yards coming into today to best Cobbs’ 4050 and finished the first half with 170. It was a great way to go out…

Bama and Money Games

That was expected. Deep down on Wednesday or so, when you were feeling really rational you knew how this trip to the Deep South was going to go down. And so it came to pass. There isn’t much to be angry about. Sure there are quibbles about playcalls here and there. Nothing would have drastically…

Houston Was Our Problem

I visited my adopted city over the weekend. I drank beer and 90-proof bourbon. I watched us lose to Houston. I’m not twenty anymore and I feel like I am losing my passionate fandom. I have too much damn perspective for this sports stuff, man. It doesn’t hurt me to lose so heartbreakingly like it…

UNT Kicks Some Cajun Ass

We sauntered into the Super Pit with our breath smelling like Street Tacos from Taco Cabana. Still feeling the lingering effects of a very happy new year’s eve and a pickup soccer game at ten in the morning, we decided not to sit in our usual seats near the guy who brings his kids to…

UNT 41 – Kansas State 49 in Fouts Finale; McCarney is the Head Coach

If you believe Vito, Dan McCarney is the head coach of North Texas football. Hooray? It is mighty tempting to wish Mike Canales would stay. Listening to his post-game interview, he certainly sounded like a guy that wanted to be here. That means a lot, though apparently not enough for AD Rick Villarreal. Sounding hoarse,…

Good Guys – 19, Arkansas State – 24

The big recap will come tomorrow. For now, here are some quick points: Our offense looked like we had a fourth stringer running it.  Chase Baine kept us in the game with his running ability. Our line was not there — again. That was the most mountainous five point deficit ever.  I’m glad we came…

Getting Lance More Carries

In the middle of the third quarter I checked the ESPN stats to see Lance's stats. He had nine carries for 67 yards. In the third quarter. To be fair, he did have a couple of catches. I counted three for eight yards. Wow. More after the jump >>

Sept 11 v Rice — Reaction

above: blurry final score A heartbreaker. Yet my heart isn’t broken. The climb back to respectability is long and hard. I see this whole thing as progress. Where we stand on Dodge’s status is irrelevant. I’ll get into the coaching mistakes later. You have to look at the facts: in two out-of-conference games so far…
