Thoughts on CUSA Media Day

  1. Head Coach Dan McCarney is always a great interview. Hard to match his passion and enthusiasm when he talks football.

  2. The Carthage boys WR Tee Goree and WR O’Keeron Rutherford will be counted on heavily to increase the production of the offense. In Coach Mac’s interview with CUSA & ASN he mentioned these guys as having prominent roles to help Carlos Harris out.

  3. The running back position is loaded. Most hard core Mean Green fans know this, but with Jimmerson, Ivory, and Wilson UNT will have an explosive backfield. Each one of those guys has a different style which makes it even more difficult on the defense.

  4. Andrew McNulty is the starting QB going into camp and has a huge lead on his competitors Josh Greer and DaMarcus Smith. Not breaking news, but some NT fans where hoping to hear that this position battle was a little bit closer. I think the coaching staff is waiting to see what Smith gives them before declaring its a tight race. Until then McNulty has done everything asked of him and deserves the job.

  5. Blake Bean a transfer from Buffalo will play a big role in the defense this year. Bean will most likely be the starting MLB against SMU. Having played for new defensive coordinator Chris Cosh at Buffalo will help Bean be the QB for the defense. Dont undersell that thought.

  6. Kenny Buyers has a real nice beard

  7. The leadership looks like its stronger this year. Last year there was a bit of complacency that I felt. It was like last year’s team thought they had arrived and didnt have to work that hard. I don’t get that feeling this year. This year’s team is putting in some pretty good off-season work.

Folk its talking season in college football. Every coach pretty much says the same thing. All these coaches believe they are good enough to get to a bowl game, they believe they still need to work, and they believe they have a tough schedule. What was said by Coach Mac and his players was nothing earth shattering. He wasnt asked tough questions. It was a peaceful setting for Coach Mac to praise his team and look forward to the upcoming gruel of a season. Believe me its going to be a grueling season with 12 games and no bye week. The bye week comes week 1. After that NT gets 7 bowl teams from last year. Nothing will be easy in this crucial year for North Texas football.
