Q&A with Mean Green Nation
With an awesome, regional match up on tap against North Texas on Saturday this week will definitely fly by. UTSA fans have waited for a non-El Paso road trip for months and it is finally approaching. The added caveat? This game will actually have some huge implications for UTSA’s postseason chances, as a win against the 7-3 Mean Green will certainly impress bowls that may consider helping UTSA apply for a waiver for bowl eligibility if their default slot isn’t filled. With such a big game lingering, we set up a cross-site Q&A with our homies over at Mean Green Nation. Adam asked me a few questions and you can read my responses here. Below are Adam’s thoughts on the Mean Green heading into Saturday’s showdown.
Taking a brief cruise around the internet reveals that UNT message board posters despise UTSA and everything that it stands for. Do you think Joe Sixpack that goes to a couple of games a year but doesn’t follow the team much outside of that shares that same resentment for UTSA?
Coming into the season Derek Thompson and Brock Berglund went through a bit of a position battle before returning starter Thompson secured his spot. How has Derek played this year and who takes the reigns in 2014?
While you’ll agree that UNT football is still a work in progress, head coach Dan McCarney has certainly taken some fantastic steps to turn the culture around at UNT. What are a few areas of improvement on and off the field that McCarney has implemented?
Mean Green has the ball at the UTSA twenty in a tied game. Five minutes to play. Third and four. What’s the play call and who gets the ball?
Plan a weekend in Denton for a UTSA fan coming into town for the first time.
