The Season Is Long But We Should Enjoy It A Bit

The funny thing about football season is that it is so long and also very short. For the players, it begins in summer time and is a slog of workouts, school, and games. For a lot of people who have checked out of this thing, football is done. There are three more games scheduled which…

Seven Is Fine: North Texas 52 UTEP 26

Mason Fine threw seven touchdown passes, including two in the first couple of minutes as the Mean Green proceeded to handle UTEP easily on Homecoming. The Miners kept it closer-than-expected, but there was never really a point where NT looked like they would be too troubled. This makes two weeks in a row that NT…

We Need To Beat UTEP, and There Is Still Hope

North Texas is currently scoring at will against UTEP, but the Miners are also scoring at will (on special teams) against our Mean Green*. *Seemingly. Over on CUSAReport, there is a post that shows you who you should root for. Essentially, North Texas needs to win out, and hope Tech loses once more and USM…

Queen City Let Down: North Texas 38 Charlotte 39

Things Are Looking Bleak: NT 27 – USM 45

Mason Fine is injured with something that looks very serious. He tried to continue with what looked like a shoulder injury once, did so, and then hurt that same shoulder bad enough to sit out the rest of the way. Without NT’s all-time passing leader in pretty much every category, there is even less hope…

Sun-Herald: Fine is Good

Patrick Magee of the Sun-Herald has something like a preview of the game “Last year, I got a couple of hits on him and he’s still getting it off,” USM redshirt junior defensive end Jacques Turner said. “It’s like you didn’t even hit him. We’ve just got to try to get him with the ball.”…

NT vs Houston: Half-time Notes

North Texas moved the ball in the first series against Houston, but stalls out midfield. That was North Texas most successful series until a field goal in the second quarter. Houston then took over the quarter, putting pressure on the North Texas offensive line. UNT’s plays developed too slowly for Mason Fine to get a…
