North Texas/Liberty Agree to Home-and-Home Series

North Texas and Liberty have agreed to a home-and-home series starting with the Mean Green making a trip to Lynchburg, Virginia on September 22, 2018. The Flames will make a return trip to Denton, TX on October 9th, 2021. This home and home series appears to take the place pf two games against the Black Knights of Army. https://twitter.com/FBSchedules/status/859933386726682626 Liberty is transitioning to FBS and will be an Independent, so there are no concerns over whether the game will or will not be counted towards bowl eligibility (it will). Liberty is a "middle-aged" program as their football program played its first down

North Texas and Learfield Enter Into 10-Year Multimedia Agreement

On Friday, North Texas and Learfield Communications, LLC jointly announced a 10-year multimedia partnership. A team will be created to manage "all aspects of the rights agreement that includes signage, digital, corporate sponsorships, television and radio play-by-play, and coaches’ shows." Hopefully this is just the beginning of a relationship that increases the visibility of the Athletics program while increasing the stature of the academics side of the university as well. While the agreement between the school and Learfield surrounds the multimedia rights, there are other areas of the Athletics that could benefit from an expanded relationship. North Texas fans should expect to

Athletics Wren Baker Reflects on His First 150 Days

I apologize for not getting this out sooner but things got a little crazy surrounding athletics and so here is what I think about Wren Baker's young tenure as Athletics Director at the University of North Texas. North Texas Vice President and Athletics Director Wren Baker recently posted a listing of accomplishment over the Fall Semester along with an update of various projects that are currently in flight or were recently completed since he took the reins of the department in August of 2016. It's important to know that not all these improvements are fan/alumni facing, so the concern over there not being
