Tuesday afternoon notes and thoughts (Dunbar, UNT 100 series et cetera)

I happened to be driving around town yesterday during Jason Garrett’s afternoon press conference at Cowboys camp.

Garrett talked about former UNT running back Lance Dunbar. He talked about him a lot.

Here’s the quote Rainer Sabin used on the Morning News’ Cowboys blog today.

“He’s just a good football player….He’s a little guy. But he’s quick. He’s explosive. Garrett also said Dunbar has “got a real good feel as a route runner and a pass catcher.”

David Moore’s column today talked about Dunbar extensively. You can get to it if you are a DMN subscriber.

Dunbar is fighting for the backup running back job behind DeMarco Murray. Former Oklahoma State Joseph Randle is also in the hunt. A lot of Cowboys writers expect Randle to win the job.

One of the all-time greats at UNT is in the hunt, though. Judging by how he performed at UNT, it will be hard to keep him off the depth chart. The Cowboys are already talking about finding ways to use Dunbar’s talents, especially as a receiver.

And in other news, we ran the final part of my summer project on the 100th anniversary of the first season in UNT football history.

There are links to the first two parts of the series in today’s story.

I will post some closing thoughts and quotes I didn’t use that are worth talking about on the blog later.
