    You can play this video side by side any other and simply change the name of the opponent and their Head Coach.
    And the use of “good” instead of “well” drives me absolutely ape sh*t.

    excerpt:

    ...The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders visit Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas on Saturday to play the North Texas Mean Green. The Blue Raiders fell to 2-4 after losing to Florida Atlantic on Saturday 28-13 in a Conference-USA showdown. Middle Tennessee scored first with an Asher O’Hara 30-yard touchdown pass and went ahead 13-12 in the second quarter on an O’Hara touchdown run, but would not score again.

    Asher O’Hara leads Middle Tennessee with 1,491 yards passing, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions. O’Hara is the leading rusher for the Blue Raiders with 368 yards and three touchdowns, while Chaton Mobley has rushed for 164 yards and three TDs. Jarrin Pierce is the leading receiver with 327 yards and two touchdowns. Reed Blankenship leads all tacklers for Middle Tennessee with 52.

    North Texas fell to 2-4 on the season following its 45-27 loss to Southern Mississippi. The North Texas defense gave up 563 total yards of offense to Southern Miss. North Texas trailed at the half 28-20, but was held to 114 yards of offense after halftime. Mason Fine threw for 217 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the loss. Jaelon Darden caught all three TD passes.

    Mason Fine leads North Texas with 1,508 yards passing, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions. The leading rusher is Tre Siggers with 502 yards and four touchdowns. Jaelon Darden leads the Mean Green in receiving with 350 yards and six touchdowns. The leading tackler for North Texas is KD Davis with 54.

    Middle Tennessee is 1-4 ATS in its last 5. The OVER has cashed in 5 of the Blue Raiders last 7 on the road.

    North Texas is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 at home

    The UNDER has cashed in 9 of the Mean Green’s last 12 conference games

    Middle Tennessee has had its problems winning straight up but has covered the number in each of its last 5 versus an opponent with a losing record. The Blue Raiders have covered the number in 5 of their last 7 conference matchups. North Texas on the other hand has failed to cover 5 of its last 6 at home and 6 of its last 7 in conference play. Final Score Prediction, North Texas Mean Green wins but comes up short ATS 31-27.....

    Denton Record Chronicle:

    What We Learned

    excerpt:

    ...The one big question everyone wants answered when it comes to UNT is if quarterback Mason Fine and running back Tre Siggers are healthy -- or anywhere close to it -- after they were knocked out of the Mean Green's loss to Southern Miss on Saturday.

    Fine injured his left shoulder, while Siggers suffered an ankle injury.

    UNT officials said late Monday afternoon they didn't have an update on the status of either player.

    The school has a playbook for situations like this. The latest example came earlier this season when UNT didn't acknowledge that wide receiver Rico Bussey Jr. was out for the year with a knee injury until just before its game against UTSA.

    The same scenario played out in previous years for quarterback Derek Thompson and Jeffery Wilson.

    UNT coach Seth Littrell will hold his weekly press conference tomorrow, where the status of Fine and Siggers will be the first question asked.

    He might offer up and answer. He might not.

    What is of little doubt is that UNT won't be the same team if Siggers and Fine miss significant time.....

    BTW, while Fine's left shoulder was injured, it should be noted Fine is a righty

    Haha. Are you sure you want that question answered? I guarantee it’s a losing record.

    Whats more concerning is 13-33 vs Group of 5 teams with an above .500 record.

    He's 1-15 against winning P5 teams. Only team he beat with winning record was Maryland.

    Full go ain't 100%. If he gets popped hard, he could get hurt worse. His range of motion will be effected and if contact is made on his weak side when the ball is being released, that ball is getting picked.

    Fine could pick our corners apart even if it was his throwing shoulder that’s hurt. As long as he stays away from the safeties he will have a big day.

    I'm old enough to remember back when North Texas was promoting Fine for Heisman. Middle fans could've told them how that turns out...

    Fine has been very over-hyped this year, along with North Texas as a whole. Both teams are bad, it'll be a close game.

    Not if we make contact. His line is not as good as FAU's. Not even close. You use a full range of motion when you throw and in footall, you use the other arm to aim and to protect the pass. If he's injured, the motion is off and he won't be able to extend that arm enough to fend off tacklers. It might make a difference for us or it may not but an injury is an injury.

    If you're going to Denton, don't drink the water...seriously

    City of Denton issues 'Boil Water Notice'

    DENTON – A boil water notice issued by the City of Denton Thursday night has forced North Texas Athletics to move its Hall of Fame induction ceremony Friday to the University Union. The Mean Green Soccer match vs. Western Kentucky scheduled for Friday is still scheduled to be played at the Soccer and Track and Field Stadium at 7 p.m. The impact for Saturday's home football game vs. Middle Tennessee at Apogee Stadium, will not be known until late Friday afternoon when tests regarding the safety to drink the water are known.

    The Boil Water Notice was issued after University of North Texas staff notified the City of Denton of an unauthorized cross-connection between a stormwater pond and the City's public water distribution system on the UNT campus near Apogee Stadium at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Thursday. The area affected is mainly south of IH35 and does not affect most of the UNT campus......
