The Scouting Report
As the college basketball season gets underway, the Mean Green look to build off of their respectable 16-16 record last season and 9-7 mark at the Super Pit. This year, they have a boost from the slick three-point shooting of Muhammed Ahmed, a 6’7” forward who made waves at the Junior College level last year to the tune of 18 points per game. Ahmed and his teammates battle non-conference foes throughout November and December, leading to a tough conference slate after January 1. Their schedule includes a C-USA showdown on Valentine’s Day, when the Mean Green will have to navigate a tough Middle Tennessee squad and also have to direct their shots past Cupid’s arrows flying around the arena.
North Texas Mean Green
In 1922, University of North Texas students elected the “Eagles” as the school’s new moniker. Nearly a century later, UNT students still make the eagle hand claw—a sign of unity that’s far more acceptable than if everyone wrote the same midterm paper. However, it turns out the Eagles nickname wasn’t meant to stick.
In the late 1960s, the UNT football team featured a ferocious defense that became widely known as the “Mean Green.” The exact origin of that name is up for debate, but many trace it back to “Mean” Joe Greene, a member of that defense who went on to lead the legendary Steel Curtain for the Pittsburgh Steelers. No matter the case, modern-day UNT athletics compete as the Mean Green, and as of June 2013, they do so as part of Conference USA.
