While reading Tom Reed's preview of tonight's Akron-Indiana game, I thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be sweet for us to return the favor and charge the field after a win."


Defender Ossie Michalsen said a win would have long-range recruiting benefits.

We all know North Texas is a below-average team. In three departments, however, the Mean Green is absolutely awful.


NTU can't return a kickoff (third-worst in Division-I), can't run (eighth-worst in D-I) and can't pass (fourth-worst in D-I).


Akron, meanwhile, is 18th in the country in both running and passing offense. They also are among the leaders in penalty yards.


  • The Fort-Worth Star Telegram mentioned this will be the first coaching matchup of Akron running backs coach Bill Bleil and his brother Fred, UNT's defensive coordinator.

  • NTU might be without middle linebackers Brandon Monroe and Derek Mendoza, who are nursing foot injuries.
