MGN Take on the 2010 Season

There is significantly less buzz going into this year. Despite the new options for following the school now, I really haven’t wanted to. I won’t pretend to speak for you. I know that even though we have videos like this filled with awkward, boring interview questions and answers, and blogs like this one with half-assed…

On College Football Previews

There is one thing I have grown to dislike. I don’t know when exactly I began to dislike it. I can’t say with any certainty that there was anything in particular that caused my dislike. It probably just happened that what I liked about it was less than what I didn’t. I probably just trudged…

UTSA vs UNT — Recruiting Angle

There has been some concern that UTSA may overtake UNT in the race for college supremacy.  The angst is building at every new hint of a rumor about the RoadRunners adding a new player, or coach, or game. Although think it is sensible to look at UTSA as a potential threat to UNT, it is…

May Self-Exam

The previews are trickling in. I usually don’t try to read too many of them because, well, they don’t know much. So I’ll try not to do the same here, for the exact same reason. The situation facing us: We have an unproven quarterback, with a mildly (if that) successful offensive coordinator and a coach…

NT Football 2010 Spring: New Offense? I Don’t Want to Be a Downer ….

… but I don’t know how much Canales will boost our production.  A couple of quick warnings before you read this : I am not taking into account potential gains we get from growth by Kid Dodge or just general offensive growth under the system in place. I also don’t know if delegating will allow…

Run N’ Shoot.

Thing of beauty SmartFootball Awesome. Times have not changed so much. Lots of teams run these same plays but more out of shotgun. Hell, some of this stuff is what the Saints and Colts used this year.

Innovative Defense

I’ll admit right now that I don’t know how to coach a defense. My only experience was as a high school defensive back — for a very short period of time. So with that said, I probably learned more about schemes and the such from our mutual friend the Internet than anywhere else (but that…

UNT on the lookout for a new OC

I learned of this via the DRC. You can read the Austin-American Statesman's account here. This pretty much means that nothing is changing very much. Well, that is if you believe that Todd Dodge is the true offensive coordinator. Whether or not PapaDodge is doing the play calling on gameday or not is really kind…

The Future of Todd Dodge at North Texas

5-31. It is the rallying cry of many fans looking to replace the head coach. Really, despite all his better qualities, the most important thing he can do is win. Winning helps everything. You need more funds for the athletic department? How about after a ten-win season capped with a bowl victory? Now we have…

Eerily Accurate Predictions

I went back and took a look at the Dynasty I started on NCAA 10 with the Mean Green. I finished 4-7 (3-5). I wish I would have put up the season stats now that I look back on it. I know I threw something like 29 picks with Rodge. I had no offensive line…
