    9/29: @UNT Game

    LA Tech still needs a high quality win in 2018. UNT is currently 4-0, with lopsided wins over the following:

    UNT 46, SMU 23
    UNT 58, Incarnate Word 16
    UNT 44, @ Arkansas 17
    UNT 47, @ Liberty 7

    UNT has a very strong passing game. The Mean Green have a 5'11, 185 lb Junior QB (Mason Fine) that is tearing it up. YTD, Mason Fine is 105 of 162 (64.8%) pass attempts for 1,328 yds and 10 TD's, against only 1 INT. He's averaging 346 yds per game in passing yds. However, remember that Fine only payed partial games against SMU and IW, due to the lopsided outcomes. Had he played full games, his stats would likely be even more padded.

    Without this kid (Fine), UNT would be a very different ball club. He's a gamer. A scrapper. In basketball, they call a guy like this a "gym rat". He's everywhere on UNT's offense, and he's their heart and soul. And yes, Fine will tuck the ball and run it. And he won't finish his runs with an "electric slide" like J'Mar. Fine is probably the best QB LA Tech will face the rest of the year, Miss St included.

    Fine does a great job of spreading his passes around, particularly to 4 quality receivers. These 4 talented receivers include Rico Bussey (24 catches for 303 yds), Jalen Guyton (18 catches for 282 yds), Jaelon Darden (17 catches for 243 yds) and Kelvin Smith (14 catches for 148 yds).

    UNT's rush game is less intimidating, averaging only 165 yds per game. Considering the level of competition they've played so far, that's not very much.

    UNT is a very dangerous team. So the Bulldogs need to show up early and often this Saturday in Denton.

    But does anyone think they're as good as LSU? This happened back in the 00's when, after we lost to Tennessee (no. 1 at the time) and Miami (previous national champs), we played number 17 Fresno State and beat them. Of course that was in Ruston.

    It's not a question of they being better than LSU...

    UNT will be tested this weekend. I don't read a lot into the Arkansas win. Ark is having problems at QB. SMU lost their HC, like Ark they are trying to get their program together. Incarnate and Liberty were easy wins. UNT hasn't been tested yet.

    UNT will be knocked down to reality this weekend.

    Remember when we had top ten passing offenses and how teams would beat us? Blitz, blitz, blitz and then run the ball down their throat to control the clock. This game is gift wrapped for Jaylon and the secondary.

    I’m not that confident.

    Mason Fine is the type of QB that gives us fits. If we don’t get pressure it will be a long day.

    And I don’t have that much confidence in Holtz and his game planning or game preparation.

    We are +8. Embarrassing...

    A team with a 6th year HC is an 8pt dog to a team that was HORRIBLE 3 years ago.

    Maybe fair, but not respectable. It should have opened around 6 considering the situations at both programs. Like I said. Vegas knows.

    Vegas doesn’t care about respect. Had UNT not blasted Arkansas, the line would be closer to home field plus a few.
