Reality Check: NT 31 – FAU 69

North Texas played an awful game and FAU took complete advantage. FAU put up 804 yards of offense, including 447 yards on the ground and 357 yards in the air. Their defense intercepted Fine twice, and jumped on one of the two NT fumbles. The game was 41-7 at half. How did the number one…

Worn Down: Iowa 31 North Texas 14

North Texas opened as 24-point underdogs to Iowa and after seeing the SMU backup QB toss a 47-yard TD late Safeway Bowl blowout it was hard to muster up hope.

A lot of it was simply good execution against an overmatched opponent. The highlight reel will suffice for our purposes. We will not…

NT Spring Game 2017

Saturday April 8th, the North Texas Mean Green lined up for the final scrimmage of spring practice. The team has been recovering, (from injuries – Fine, Wilson) reloading (Nic Smith, Pearson, Guyton), and adjusting (all those new coaches). Once more we are afforded the opportunity to overreact to a scrimmage months away from the real…

2016 Football Season Recap

I flirted with the idea of recapping the season after UTEP, and then again after the HOD Bowl. Niether felt right, as we were too close to the results. We just signed the next class, and so a look back is timely, as Spring camp is near and we will essentially begin looking toward the…
