Small crowd

No surprise here. I’m sure the 39 degree weather and windy atmosphere didn’t help, but 8,305 people in total attendance was laughable – especially for Senior Day. There was more noise coming from the press box TV than the entire student section it seemed.

McNulty starting

Senior quarterback Andrew McNulty started in the final game of his career before going down with a cracked rib prior to halftime. The five-year Mean Green QB started his tenure with former head coach Dan McCarney before this year’s abysmal season. The Iowa City native took a few shots downfield and on the ground, but couldn’t stay in the game long enough to make an impact. Goodbye to the McNulty regime at North Texas.

A spark 

Junior punter Eric Keenum was the only bright spot for the Mean Green with 44.6 yards per punt, a long of 63 and no touchbacks. Punters are players too.

Outstanding defense

The North Texas defense looked better than it has all season. The squad pitched its first halftime shutout since week two of last season.

QB issues

They didn’t go away for the last game of the season. All three Mean Green QBs played in the game with zero sparks under center. McNulty got knocked out of the game, DaMarcus Smith went 3-for-13 and Josh Greer threw a pick six on his only throw. This just wasn’t North Texas’ year.
