Run N’ Shoot.

Thing of beauty SmartFootball Awesome. Times have not changed so much. Lots of teams run these same plays but more out of shotgun. Hell, some of this stuff is what the Saints and Colts used this year.

Innovative Defense

I’ll admit right now that I don’t know how to coach a defense. My only experience was as a high school defensive back — for a very short period of time. So with that said, I probably learned more about schemes and the such from our mutual friend the Internet than anywhere else (but that…

SMU kicks Nevada’s ass

The thing about SMU becoming relevant again is that it means that there is more competition for us Mean Green faithful. Competition of course being a nice way of putting it. We suck. What disappoints me most is that we had a twenty year window in which to make some headway into the metropolis of…

The Future of Todd Dodge at North Texas

5-31. It is the rallying cry of many fans looking to replace the head coach. Really, despite all his better qualities, the most important thing he can do is win. Winning helps everything. You need more funds for the athletic department? How about after a ten-win season capped with a bowl victory? Now we have…

Eerily Accurate Predictions

I went back and took a look at the Dynasty I started on NCAA 10 with the Mean Green. I finished 4-7 (3-5). I wish I would have put up the season stats now that I look back on it. I know I threw something like 29 picks with Rodge. I had no offensive line…

Hey, New Stadium on the way

Denton RC Finally. I totally agree with Vito’s piece. We have been suckyville. A lot of people have complained, and a lot of people decided to bail instead of fixing it. We are on the way to fixing it. For the people who ask why Denton sucks as a college town and wonder why we…

NT 40 FAU 44

The cries for the backup quarterback have begun! … and I think they are unfounded. But, lets rate them anyway! Riley Dodge: Good: Last night KiDodge went 4/7 for 117 yards. Most of those (69) coming of a bubble screen to Jamaal Jackson. No interceptions and he avoided pressure and turned it into some yardage.…

The Bye Week

Oh to be as awsome and all powerful as ESPN. They got themselves as new internet site, didnt they? Local coverage is what they want to get into now. Durn conglomerates. Anyway, here is the link to the UNT home page. I think what I hate most about them is that they are so damn…

Stop Gap Post

Is it me or does Middle have the worst uniforms? Why do they look purple in this picture? I always have hated that KSU-metallic-grayish helmet color and that helmet style doesn’t even match their Northwestern-jockin’ unis. That logo looks like it was made for a USFL team. Meh.

Middle Tennesee State Blue Raiders V North Texas Mean Green (Eagles)

Tony Franklin sure knows how to make a buck. Learning his offense from Hal Mumme with Mike Leach at Kentucky (HM learned it from LaVell Edwards) in the late 90s, he has successfully sold its principles and practice methods and made some decent cashola off of it. As far as I know, old Hal and…
