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…

North Texas vs Ragin’ Cajuns 10.2.10

I called it. I don’t know if I should be proud of that, though. In the seconds before North Texas lined up for what should have been the game-tying-point-after, I turned to my wife–who was shivering in the breeze of the young fall night–and said, “Ah, please don’t miss this.” Back when Aaron Brooks was…

Sept 18, 2010 v Army — Picking Up the Pieces

Wow. We added injuries to insults today. Maybe to be clever? I don't know. I do know that I, and the fellow Mean Greeners at Buffalo Wild Wings in Denton, were numb. It was a surreal defeat. Halfway through I mentioned to my friend that it was one of the worst ways to lose. A…

Army – Sept 18 2010 Preview

Ah Army. Let's take a little look-see at what the mighty Mean Green will have in store for them on Saturday. This is game two of our little home-and-home series with this squad. If you don't remember the game very well, it ended in very typical North Texas fashion: With less than six minutes remaining…

Getting Lance More Carries

In the middle of the third quarter I checked the ESPN stats to see Lance's stats. He had nine carries for 67 yards. In the third quarter. To be fair, he did have a couple of catches. I counted three for eight yards. Wow. More after the jump >>

Sept 11 v Rice — Reaction

above: blurry final score A heartbreaker. Yet my heart isn’t broken. The climb back to respectability is long and hard. I see this whole thing as progress. Where we stand on Dodge’s status is irrelevant. I’ll get into the coaching mistakes later. You have to look at the facts: in two out-of-conference games so far…

3Q update – Rice Sept 11 2010

Forgive me sportsfans. I didn’t mention that I am at the game and won’t be liveblogging today. You can always check out Vito’s blog at the DRC, TMGR by Phillips or follow The NT Daily’s twitter feed (@NTDailySports). With just my phone I gotta stick to commentary. @aztecskin. Keep refresh at te end of the…
