Catching Up

Johnny Jones is happy If you hadn’t noticed, MGN has been rather silent on matters lately. Just a small little break for personal matters (car accident and parents coming up for Christmas). So what did I miss? Well, it seems that we went to the Pete Maravich Center for a little combo Johnny Jones —…

Dan McCarney Era Begins

Dan McCarney (Yeah it’s a screen shot so what?) Danny Mac can sure talk a good game, huh? I’ve heard that he can give a good performance at press conferences but I’d never seen one live. What got me was the ‘Why not North Texas?” speech. Stirring. The icing of course was the announcement that…

Dan McCarney and his Contract

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…

According to Todd Dodge, Chase Baine will be taking the primary snaps this week in preparation for the self-hating Arkansas State Red Wolves. Not good news for this star-crossed team.

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…
