Switching to Nike, Goodbye Southlake Carroll Unis

Seriously, they look the same. It was along running joke that Papa Dodge brought with him the Southlake Carroll Jerseys. In fact, I once imagined the conversation that started it: RV: You know, Todd Dodge is sooo awesome.Friend: Yeah. Too bad he coaches high school.RV: We should hire him.Friend: Yeah.RV: You know? We should hire…

Who will replace Riley Dodge?

So who do we have to replace Riles? Here, in no particular order, are the guys that are on/will be on the roster:

Riley Dodge To Transfer

Riley Dodge doing stuff Per MGR, espndallas and MGB, Riley: “I have loved my time at North Texas. I have many friends and teammates that I will miss greatly. I hope all the best for North Texas football as it enters a new era and a great new stadium. Under the circumstances that I have…

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…

Mike Canales on Attacking the Overhang

Mike Canales Wut? Surely you know what the overhang defender on an odd-man front is? No? Then you probably don’t know why you are clamoring for a tight-end, do you? Coach Canales is on board with bringing in a guy that can block the safety and help in the run game, something Boise St. and…

Catching Up

Johnny Jones is happy If you hadn’t noticed, MGN has been rather silent on matters lately. Just a small little break for personal matters (car accident and parents coming up for Christmas). So what did I miss? Well, it seems that we went to the Pete Maravich Center for a little combo Johnny Jones —…

Dan McCarney Era Begins

Dan McCarney (Yeah it’s a screen shot so what?) Danny Mac can sure talk a good game, huh? I’ve heard that he can give a good performance at press conferences but I’d never seen one live. What got me was the ‘Why not North Texas?” speech. Stirring. The icing of course was the announcement that…

Dan McCarney and his Contract

Rumors were that the thing was nearly $500,000. Vito is reporting that that is the case. It is considerably more than we paid Papa Dodge. It is fitting of an experienced coach who led a relatively prominent program to relatively high places. I had this to say about the whole thing: It is mighty tempting…

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,…
