Rumors were that the thing was nearly $500,000. Vito is reporting that that is the case. It is considerably more than we paid Papa Dodge. It is fitting of an experienced coach who led a relatively prominent program to relatively high places. I had this to say about the whole thing: It is mighty tempting… Read more »
The Fearsome Bobcat Student Section Ed note: North Texas played the mighty Texas State Bobcats in San Marcos while K-State (and a crapload of Kansans) visited Fouts. Intrepid blogger and UNT alum (and apparent Aggie fan?) Quoner, aka Brians_Song reports: Have you ever taken a child to a sporting event? I hadn’t. My experience with… Read more »
If you believe Vito, Dan McCarney is the head coach of North Texas football. Hooray? It is mighty tempting to wish Mike Canales would stay. Listening to his post-game interview, he certainly sounded like a guy that wanted to be here. That means a lot, though apparently not enough for AD Rick Villarreal. Sounding hoarse,… Read more »

Josh White: Beast Already being called the most amazing atmosphere at the SuperPit — and maybe at a UNT venue ever– the win versus the Red Raiders was many things — a statement, a big win, a great way to start the season — but most of all it was fun. Yeah. Fun. It had… Read more »
Wow. It is kind of hard to believe, no? Well, for those of us who joined North Texas post-2004 it is. Three wins in a year. Hasn’t happened since 2006. Also we fired the guy for that. I digress. I just mean that it is again becoming harder to not be excited about the direction… Read more »
I’ll admit that I had some hopes for this year’s squad after the performances vs Clemson and Rice. I almost thought that Todd Dodge had a chance to save his job. Games like this make me wonder if he could have, in fact, done so. If we played the “Coming into this season, if I… Read more »
