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…

UTSA vs UNT — Recruiting Angle

There has been some concern that UTSA may overtake UNT in the race for college supremacy.  The angst is building at every new hint of a rumor about the RoadRunners adding a new player, or coach, or game. Although think it is sensible to look at UTSA as a potential threat to UNT, it is…

NT 40 FAU 44

The cries for the backup quarterback have begun! … and I think they are unfounded. But, lets rate them anyway! Riley Dodge: Good: Last night KiDodge went 4/7 for 117 yards. Most of those (69) coming of a bubble screen to Jamaal Jackson. No interceptions and he avoided pressure and turned it into some yardage.…

The Bye Week

Oh to be as awsome and all powerful as ESPN. They got themselves as new internet site, didnt they? Local coverage is what they want to get into now. Durn conglomerates. Anyway, here is the link to the UNT home page. I think what I hate most about them is that they are so damn…

NT v Alabama: 53-7

Well, that was embarassing, huh? It was very apparent that we had no business being on the field with those guys. It is foolish to think we had a chance at an upset huh? I don’t think anyone can make a decent argument that there was anything that we could do better that would have…

Good Guys Win: Mean Green 20 – Ball St 10

So? That North Texas: Aren’t they 1-0? Hell. Yes. First off, your humble MGN scribe turned 24 yesterday. Being a loyal but practical kind of guy I planned to watch the game until it became unwatchable (like I said, practical) and then proceed to my birthday festivities. Turns out the only unwatchable parts were the…
