Bowling Chances 2012

After conference opponent Louisiana-Lafayette 30-23 on Tuesday the 16th, there have been rumblings about bowl-eligibilty. Of course, if you have been reading MGN, you know the deal. North Texas’ record is at 3-4 (2-1). There are five games remaining — all Sun Belt matchups. Here are the standings: ULM 3-0, 5-2 WKU 2-1, 5-2 UNT… Read more »

Sun Belt Week Five 2012

Well I’m not feeling any better about the prospects of winning the conference. That isn’t because the win over FAU was bad. It is because the rest of the Belt looked so good this week. Let’s take a tour shall we? MTSU 49 v Ga Tech 28 Ah this was probably the headline of the… Read more »

We beat them last season. Guess what else? It was without Lance Dunbar. He left the game early and James… Read more »

Troy 89 North Texas 81: WTF?

It feels like we lost by more. With Troy carrying that sad little 3-13 record coming in and big bad North Texas with the 14-3 mark I was thinking that we should go and handle our business. Well, Troy did the business-handling.  For whatever reason NT couldn’t stop them in the second half, allowing them… Read more »
