North Texas Squeaks by Rice 68-65

UNT v Rice That was kind of a horrible game. Thanks to Tristan Thompson and a successful full-court press, North Texas  squeaked away with a win.

North Texas 23, Middle Tennesee 17: Canales two wins in three tries

Wow. It is kind of hard to believe, no? Well, for those of us who joined North Texas post-2004 it is. Three wins in a year. Hasn’t happened since 2006. Also we fired the guy for that. I digress. I just mean that it is again becoming harder to not be excited about the direction…

Troy wins again

I’ll admit that I had some hopes for this year’s squad after the performances vs Clemson and Rice. I almost thought that Todd Dodge had a chance to save his job. Games like this make me wonder if he could have, in fact, done so. If we played the “Coming into this season, if I…

Canales Try-Out Series: Game Two vs Troy

Here we go. Last week, after a throttling of hapless Western Kentucky I said we should put a hold on printing out a new head coaching contract for ol’ Chico. If we get a similar result today, I think maybe we can at least think about formatting said contract.

Keeping Mike Canales

Should we keep the guy based of the 33-6 beat down over perennial fodder Western Kentucky? The answer is no. Should we keep the guy if he runs off three or four wins against the conference plus K-State? The answer is maybe. Will we?

Todd Dodge Fired

He was near the top of every coaches hot seat from the beginning of the year and probably the lists from last year as well so it wasn’t too much of a surprise when Papa Dodge got canned yesterday morning. It was damn near expected. We won’t be able to accurately put into perspective his…

Good Guys – 19, Arkansas State – 24

The big recap will come tomorrow. For now, here are some quick points: Our offense looked like we had a fourth stringer running it.  Chase Baine kept us in the game with his running ability. Our line was not there — again. That was the most mountainous five point deficit ever.  I’m glad we came…

MTSU v Troy 10.5.10

Horrible game. Dwight Dasher’s return was supposed to ignite the team and especially the offense. That did not happen. What we saw instead was Troy slowly putting a slow squeeze on the poor Middle Tennessee offense in route to a dominating effort. Throughout the game I felt Troy was not as impressive so much as…

Arkansas State Preview 10.19.10

I won’t bore you with stats that you don’t care about nor with fun facts that aren’t so fun. Arkansas State isn’t very good. They come in to Denton with four losses, the most recent being the hurting Louisville put on them in Jonesboro. Sure, 34-24 doesn’t look like a beat-down, but the first half…

Riley Dodge Breaks Wrist

The ridiculousness continues. Brett Vito says Riley has broken his non-throwing wrist. Our top three quarterbacks have been injured. According to Todd Dodge, Chase Baine will be taking the primary snaps this week in preparation for the self-hating Arkansas State Red Wolves. Not good news for this star-crossed team. To be fair, Dodge may be able to…
