The Scouting Report
During the Mean Green’s matchup against Southern Miss on October 18, wide receiver Carlos Harris was a one-man wrecking crew. The Frisco native hauled in a career-high 15 catches for 216 yards, earning him honors as C-USA player of the week. As the team’s leading receiver, Harris has been the star on an impressive Mean Green offense that averages nearly 30 points per game. In fact, on September 20, the Mean Green stomped Nicholls State 77–3 in one of the most lopsided wins in school history. In two weeks, they’ll try to repeat that feat during the final home game of the year, before the grounds crew wraps Apogee Stadium’s goal posts in tin foil to keep them fresh for the offseason.
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.
