Facepalm: North Texas 17 UTSA 49

If you came into this game with some semblance of confidence, it was not misplaced. There really and truly was good reason to think NT had a decent shot in this one. UTSA was favored — but just by 2.5. Instead, NT’s vaunted offense disappointed thoroughly early and often against a solid defense in UTSA.…

Bean Cooking: North Texas 52 MTSU 35

North Texas has twice set a new mark for offense twice this season. Both times North Texas was primarily quarterbacked by Jason Bean. If you have been following along this season you know Bean has been benched since the SMU game, for performance and Austin Aune has run the offense well, and thrown for 277/per…

Still Bad: Southern Miss 41 North Texas 31

North Texas entered into this week with the benefit of an off week after cancelling the Houston game because of COVID-19 contact tracing. There was some question if it would be beneficial at all, considering the losses to the depth chart make it harder to practice. Southern Miss was embarrassed against Tulane last week. They…

Jason Bean Leads North Texas to Win Over Houston Baptist 57-31

Jason Bean was the last minute choice to start the pandemic season opener and did about all he could to win the job permanently. In split action with co-starter (according to the depth chart) Austin Aune, he put up a nice line: 11 of 18 for 217 yards and 3 touchdown passes against one interception.…

Seven Is Fine: North Texas 52 UTEP 26

Mason Fine threw seven touchdown passes, including two in the first couple of minutes as the Mean Green proceeded to handle UTEP easily on Homecoming. The Miners kept it closer-than-expected, but there was never really a point where NT looked like they would be too troubled. This makes two weeks in a row that NT…

Darden Time: North Texas 33 MTSU 30

Jaelon Darden fell backward as he backpedaled and adjusted to a ball thrown over his left shoulder with less than 10-seconds left. Mason Fine had rolled to his left three steps, and floated a ball to the hash, in the only spot that Darden could get to but away from the defender. Darden made the…

Things Are Looking Bleak: NT 27 – USM 45

Mason Fine is injured with something that looks very serious. He tried to continue with what looked like a shoulder injury once, did so, and then hurt that same shoulder bad enough to sit out the rest of the way. Without NT’s all-time passing leader in pretty much every category, there is even less hope…

North Texas vs Houston Preview

This has been an strange week. The Houston Cougars star QB D’Eriq King abruptly announced that he is redshirting the rest of this season — a prelude to a transfer perhaps — that would remove him from the upcoming game vs North Texas.  Incredibly, his backup is Clayton Tune, Hebron HS’s own steps into the…

Fine Throws Four, NT Rolls 51 ACU 31

If you had paid close attention, you knew that Mason Fine is good and that the defense had a lot of inexperience. North Texas jumped out big quickly but allowed Abilene Christian to outscore them in the second half 17-13 to make the score look something like respectable. Mason Fine and company were up 38-10…
