One of the last people I spent a minute or two with at C-USA media day was commissioner Britton Banowsky. I was picking up some material for our preseason football magazine, but we wandered off to some other topics for a minute or two.
Banowsky has been around the college football block a few times and offered up an unsolicited opinion of Dan McCarney.
“I knew Dan McCarney when he was at Iowa State and I was at the Big 12,” Banowsky said. “I really enjoyed his style and the way that he built a football program.”
McCarney is off to a great start at UNT, where he won five games last year, more than the Mean Green had won in a season since 2004.
