Mean Green End Disappointing Season, Mason Fine’s Last Game

The entire season can be summed up in the third quarter game-losing interception: tough scenario, bold plan, terrible execution, awful result. North Texas kicked off the last season of Mason Fine’s collegiate career with much fanfare. There was a little G5 Heisman talk, some beat writer-led division hype, and the lingering good feelings from back-to-back…

North Texas vs UAB Halftime Thoughts

The audience for Mason Fine’s last game was paltry. We can go without saying that Mason Fine deserved a great sendoff, but Fine has nothing to play for today but to remain healthy for the NFL draft process. UAB has dominated physically through most of the game, but have gotten in their own way through…

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…
