Tuesday Morning Thoughts – Lets Analyze

It’s a new week and that means there should be new hope around the UNT football team.  I know some fans are pushing the panic button, but I believe we have to wait till we play SMU before we push it. 1. QB competition has been reopen. Not sure I totally agree with this idea. I also…

Captains For 2014 Named

Mason Y’Barbo instagrammed the above. Your captains for this season: Y’Barbo, Kenny Buyers, Derek Akunne, Cyril Lemon. Solid choices across the board. The surprise?

Film Room: Stopping The Run

Much was made of the Rice team’s ability to run the ball. North Texas’ defense did a hell of a job corralling that phase of the game, and despite allowing Charles Ross 101 yards, Rice’s run game wasn’t much of a factor. They couldn’t run when they needed to (ahem, goal line?) and most of…

North Texas 28 Rice 16 — BOWL ELIGIBILITY!

Rice scored their last touchdown (and point) with nine minutes remaining in the second quarter to take a 16-7 lead. Tonight was epic. It was amazing.…

North Texas 21 Tulane 24 – 10.5.13

Today’s game was brought to me by Fox College Sports, one of the few I have that is in standard definition. It was great to see North Texas play on a screen bigger than my iPad but it was in standard definition. I mean come on. Okay. /First World Problems. North Texas dropped a incredibly…

Kenny Buyers To Start Over Zac Whitfield

It is #BeatBallState week. We have a new cornerback in town. Well, not in town, per se, but in the starting line up. Kenny Buyers, he of the interception late during the rally up in Athens will be getting the nod over Zac Whitfield. This is interesting in that Zac had done well but still…
