North Texas 23, Middle Tennesee 17: Canales two wins in three tries

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…

Todd Dodge Fired

He was near the top of every coaches hot seat from the beginning of the year and probably the lists from last year as well so it wasn’t too much of a surprise when Papa Dodge got canned yesterday morning. It was damn near expected. We won’t be able to accurately put into perspective his…

North Texas vs Ragin’ Cajuns 10.2.10

I called it. I don’t know if I should be proud of that, though. In the seconds before North Texas lined up for what should have been the game-tying-point-after, I turned to my wife–who was shivering in the breeze of the young fall night–and said, “Ah, please don’t miss this.” Back when Aaron Brooks was…

Sept 18, 2010 v Army — Picking Up the Pieces

Wow. We added injuries to insults today. Maybe to be clever? I don't know. I do know that I, and the fellow Mean Greeners at Buffalo Wild Wings in Denton, were numb. It was a surreal defeat. Halfway through I mentioned to my friend that it was one of the worst ways to lose. A…

Sept 11 v Rice — Reaction

above: blurry final score A heartbreaker. Yet my heart isn’t broken. The climb back to respectability is long and hard. I see this whole thing as progress. Where we stand on Dodge’s status is irrelevant. I’ll get into the coaching mistakes later. You have to look at the facts: in two out-of-conference games so far…

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…

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…

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…

NT v Alabama: 53-7

Well, that was embarassing, huh? It was very apparent that we had no business being on the field with those guys. It is foolish to think we had a chance at an upset huh? I don’t think anyone can make a decent argument that there was anything that we could do better that would have…
