The Scouting Report
In the Heart of Texas Bowl on January 1, North Texas allowed a 95-yard touchdown drive to UNLV on the opening possession. Turns out, that wake-up call was all the Mean Green needed. The defense allowed just one more touchdown the rest of the game en route to a 36-14 win. That victory was the exclamation point on a 9-4 season, and it capped off an impressive streak during which the Mean Green won seven of eight games. This season, the Mean Green D has already flashed its potential: in the team’s home opener on September 6, the defense led the charge during a 43-6 victory over SMU. It also forced four turnovers that game, leading to 27 Mean Green points.
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.
