The scene at Apogee Stadium on Saturday afternoon drove home one obvious point when it comes to the North Texas football program.
The journey to its first win against a Division I team this season is about to get a whole lot tougher for North Texas.
North Texas entered its fifth season under Dan McCarney a couple of months ago hoping to show that it was on the way back up. Only a year had passed since one of the greatest seasons in UNT history — a 9-4 campaign capped by a win over UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. The Mean Green fell back to 4-8 a year ago, but an influx of junior college players and a renewed sense of urgency had UNT believing 2015 could be its bounce-back season.
What started out as a tough run through its home tournament this week, got worse – a whole lot worse – for North Texas on Wednesday night. The Mean Green lost their third straight in the Mean Green Challenge, a tournament UNT set up largely to help facilitate a good start to the season. Troy hammered UNT 86-74 in the Mean Green’s final game of the event, and that might not have been the worst part of what transpired for UNT.
The idea when North Texas set its schedule was to use the Mean Green Challenge as a launching point for a successful season. UNT is down to its last opportunity to reach that goal today in a game against Troy. After what transpired in a 74-72 loss to Samford on Tuesday, even a win over the Trojans might not be enough to wash away the bitter taste of two straight tight defeats.

The impact of the changes North Texas made offensively a few weeks ago were obvious — at least for a little while.

Idaho handed North Texas opportunity after opportunity to make the big play it needed to extend its season-opening winning streak on Monday night at the Super Pit.
After posting a 24-7 overall record, the TWU volleyball team was rewarded with an at-large bid to the 2015 NCAA South Central Regional Tournament. The Pioneers earned their fourth NCAA tournament berth (1996, 1997 and 2013) in program history and second under coach Shelly Barberee.

SAN ANTONIO — The North Texas volleyball team fell to top seed Western Kentucky in the Conference USA tournament semifinals Saturday, ending the season with a 20-13 record.
Garrett Gunter didn’t have a chance to get nervous last week during North Texas’ loss to Tennessee. The seldom-used offensive lineman was standing on the sideline until starting center Kaydon Kirby went down with a shoulder injury, helping turn the game into an all-hands-on-deck situation for the Mean Green that will continue today when they take on Middle Tennessee.
Michael Banogu seemed to be in an ideal spot a few years ago at Division II Arkansas Tech, where he carved out a role early and seemed destined for a starting job. And yet, the former Prosper standout couldn’t shake the feeling that he had sold himself short.
Carnae Dillard reached one of her goals for her senior season at North Texas on Wednesday, when she was named Conference USA’s player of the year for the second straight season. This weekend, one of the greatest athletes in UNT history will have a chance to reach even greater heights back in her hometown.
Although the memory is from a year ago, it lingered in TWU coach Shelly Barberee’s consciousness this week as she prepared her Pioneers for today’s opening round of the Lone Star Conference tournament.
Jalie Mitchell’s phone kept ringing all day long Tuesday, as her peers from across the college basketball world checked in one by one.
Nearly as big as last weekend’s two victories to open the basketball season for TWU, whom they beat also was important to the Pioneers.
North Texas pulled off a bit of surprise Saturday when the Mean Green stayed in their game with Tennessee for much of the day. UNT interim coach Mike Canales said after the game that the Mean Green could take a lot from their performance against the Volunteers. He reiterated that point Monday, with one caveat.

There aren’t many people who believe North Texas has a chance to pull off what would be a stunning upset today at Tennessee. The Mean Green are a 41 1/2-point underdog for their 11 a.m. game against the Volunteers at Neyland Stadium — understandably so, with UNT sitting at 1-8 and headed east to play a Southeastern Conference team.
LUBBOCK — The Texas Tech Red Raiders made a first-half goal stand up in a 1-0 victory against the University of North Texas on Friday night in the opening round of the NCAA Division I tournament at the John Walker Soccer Complex on the campus of Texas Tech.
