North Texas 7 Troy 7 Halftime 9.22.12

So that vaunted passing attack eh? Not that great.  Well at least that was the case for the majority of the first half.  It wasn’t until late in the second quarter that Troy was able to move the ball at all let arough through the air. It was mostly via underneath passes against soft coverage… Read more »

NT 21 KSU 35

And so it goes. As I said in the first half recap, Kansas State came into this game as a 28.5-point favorite. Here at MGN HQ there wasn’t the same feeling of resignation going into Manhattan as there was going into Baton Rouge. This isn’t just because BR is a crazy, scary place as it… Read more »

NT 7 KSU 14 Halftime

Kansas State came into this game as a 28.5-point favorite. Here at MGN HQ there wasn’t the same feeling of resignation going into Manhattan as there was going into Baton Rouge. This isn’t just because BR is a crazy, scary place as it is that K-State isn’t a scary team. The team so far hasn’t… Read more »

North Texas 34 TxSouthern 7

//Collage is from the responses to the #ShowYourColors topic on twitter. Thanks, guys// Let’s be real. That should have been a 70-3 game at worst. Derek Thompson over-threw, under-threw and poorly-threw. The student section was legit, however. The rest of the fan base didn’t really show up. Now, I don’t know the breakdown nor do… Read more »

MGN Video Recap: LSU Sept 1 2012

We were beaten pretty badly, but there were some bright spots. Here are few clips highlighting the kinds of things the guys did well and a few that explain what went wrong.

North Texas 14 LSU 41

//featured pic is a collage of #ShowYourColors responses before game time. Thanks ya’ll// Generally, I don’t like moral victories. Sometimes, however, they taste real good. After getting shellacked by bigger, stronger, more well-funded schools for what seemed like forever it was nice to feel like we had a fighting chance tonight in Baton Rouge. There… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »
