Iconic Mean Green

A few years ago some website ran a list (imagine that!) of the best looking college football helmets. Not nearly as unique or rare then as it is now –head over to Bleacher Report and have a gander — I was interested. I was glad to see that the Longhorn’s all-white-logo-only lid was the top….

Linking: Yahoo Edition plus Clint Bowen!

Coogs Preview NT Danny Mac on the task ahead of him: “North Texas has gone many years without playing good defense,” McCarney said of his new team. “Most defensive stats were in the bottom ten in college football in 2010. We must learn to make many more big plays, game changing plays and dominant plays… Read more »

Linking: Revisit 2010, Todd Dodge’s New Home and More

Football Study Hall This is a good, objective look back on last year. It is fairy accurate (he missed some of the details) and provides the statistical version of the story your local season ticket holder would tell you without the harping on the use of tight ends. Quick version: UNT was predictable on offense…. Read more »

2011 Season Preview

The start of the season is upon us. How do you feel? Compared to last year, this season should fill you with dread. Maybe disillusionment. Looking from last July 26th, I was reasonably pessimistic about this 2011 season. Papa Dodge had loaded up for one last hurrah in 2010 and much depended on it. Multiple… Read more »

Vito on Positivity

Whoa. Apparently someone is complaining about Vito being too negative on the blog and spouts the oft-repeated mantra touting positivity and the “correct” way to refer to the school’s athletic department. Bret set the record straight: First off, our style is to use UNT on second reference. It doesn’t matter how UNT is branding itself this… Read more »

Experience The New Mean Green

Totally awesome because I am an alumnus. I must admit that I am not really that excited about the green helmet with “North Texas” on the sides. I maintain that it looks like a placeholder for the logo. nTm imagines it this way: Designer 1: Once we get the new logo files in, they’ll go… Read more »

Horizon Gazing

It is way early to be looking into the future. Only one month removed from March Madness and seven months before November, anything and everything can happen. That said, even yahoo has jumped on the bandwagon. Sorta. If both Franklin and Mitchell are able to play next season and the incoming class makes an immediate… Read more »

Josh White’s Exit Interview. Sorta.

This spur-of-the-moment interview started because of drinking. My friend had had too much last night at a rock show and I had to give him a ride to his car this morning. On my way back, I stopped by the apartment office for free coffee and whatever free snacks they like to put out. So… Read more »
