Mean Green Soccer Take On Arkansas

North Texas won the CUSA Tournament again. The team travel to Arkansas to play in the first round of the tournament against the 3rd ranked Razerbacks in this side of the bracket. BRACKET The NCAA site hype for the Razorbacks: No. 3 Arkansas (16-3-2): The Razorbacks are the 2019 SEC runner-ups and are the only team…

UTEP vs North Texas Halftime Notes

The offense has gone heavy uptempo and heavy pass against UTEP this game. With the help of a special teams fumble recovery, Mason Fine scored three touchdown passes in less than three minutes of play in the first quarter. This is what the uptempo offense has hoped to be all season. The major factor in…

It’s Friday

It’s Mean Green Friday so yes, I am wearing green. It’s cold and so that means a sweater. A thing that sucks about being a North Texas fan: there are a limited amount of sweater styles. I have found myself resorting to some 1930s-style fandom and wearing green but without a logo. This can also…

North Texas vs Middle Tennessee Half-Time Notes

North Texas has made it a tough game for themselves. The defense has given the offense enough opportunities to put some distance on Middle Tennessee, but the offense has not taken advantage. The offense has been slow to adjust to Middle Tennessee’s pressure. North Texas leads 17-16. Fine marched the team down the field to…

North Texas Gets Stomped by SMU: 27-49

I have an unofficial rule that when two teams are evenly matched it will result in a blowout. SMU came in with talent and depth in certain positions, and NT with talent and depth in others. What happened was that their best players played better than the Mean Green versions. It is no more complicated…

Fine Throws Four, NT Rolls 51 ACU 31

If you had paid close attention, you knew that Mason Fine is good and that the defense had a lot of inexperience. North Texas jumped out big quickly but allowed Abilene Christian to outscore them in the second half 17-13 to make the score look something like respectable. Mason Fine and company were up 38-10…

MGN Book Club

On the MGN Slack, a slacker posed the question “What should I do now?” after the men’s basketball team lost in the tournament. Typically, this is when MGN takes a break and talks to immediate family, and checks in with the world. On the Slack channel, I joked “you should read.” I thought a little…

2019 CUSA Basketball Tournament

It all begins today. The men and women get started — with Jalie Mitchell’s team to begin against Southern Miss this morning at 11am. Last season, the women made a little run only to be snuffed out by the eventual tournament champs WKU. This season the roster looks a bit different, but the team is…

ESPN: Skullduggery with Mike Leach and Seth Littrell

One of the best parts of college football are the stories about bending the rules a little. This from Jake Trotter at ESPN.com is a great tale of the time Mike Leach — with the help of current NT head coach Seth Littrell — planted a fake play script and almost stole the game.

There are appearances by current Texas St. head coach Everette Withers, and current Texas coach Tom Herman. Here is the video of the game, where you can see Texas bumble about in the first quarter. If you just want to see Littrell get some touches, he gets a little sweep handoff at the 7:00 minute mark and then gets the ball in a pass to the flat. He gained three yards.
