Quick press conference notes

There were a couple of good tidbits to come out of Dan McCarney’s press conference today. Here are the highlights:

– The news nugget that stuck out to me was McCarney tossed a number out there for the number of players UNT will sign this year — 20. That total does not include transfers, including Brock Berglund and Reggie Pegram. McCarney mentioned again that UNT is expecting a lot out of Pegram. Those two guys will fill some holes, but 20 does not leave UNT a whole lot of wiggle room considering UNT has several players on the board.

– McCarney also talked about how great it will be to open at home next season. I mentioned this a while back, but all the details have been hammered out. A UNT spokesman said that Idaho is officially the Mean Green’s first game of next year.
