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…

3Q update – Rice Sept 11 2010

Forgive me sportsfans. I didn’t mention that I am at the game and won’t be liveblogging today. You can always check out Vito’s blog at the DRC, TMGR by Phillips or follow The NT Daily’s twitter feed (@NTDailySports). With just my phone I gotta stick to commentary. @aztecskin. Keep refresh at te end of the…

Week 2 v Rice — preview time

I’ve been perusing some of the preview stuff for this week’s game. There are lots of comparisons of the two teams, talking about how similar they are as a team and how similar they looked in the week one games. Eh. Let’s look at what we know: Texas came out of the gates looking to…

Rice — Those (really smart) bastards.

I went to middle school with Jarret Dillard. He beat me out for starting WR on the football team. It didn’t matter really because I didn’t end up playing past the first game that year (I moved to TE) because my parents insisted Wednesday night church was more important. So yeah. Those bastards beat UNT…

Sept 4 2010 v Clemson liveblog

Whew. What a half huh? No? Surprises:  We are not down 50. We out gained them 238-228. We haven't turned the ball over The defense is playing well.  Regrets:  If we didn't blow the tackles on Ellington he wouldn't have scored.  If we didn't blow the coverage on the deep Parker pass, he wouldn't have…

MGN Take on the 2010 Season

There is significantly less buzz going into this year. Despite the new options for following the school now, I really haven’t wanted to. I won’t pretend to speak for you. I know that even though we have videos like this filled with awkward, boring interview questions and answers, and blogs like this one with half-assed…
