I was just about to roll out the door this morning to film some practice drills and grab a story for tomorrow’s paper when I received word that UNT has given its players the day off.
Turns out it’s champions day.
Champions Day Here at North Texas; Excited to See Who Special Guest is. Stay Tuned. #Hit6

UNT offensive coordinator Mike Canales indicated that the Mean Green will have a special guest today. Dan McCarney is a pretty big name in college football and usually brings in a heavy-hitter to speak. Being located near Dallas, where so many high-profile sports figures live certainly helps.
The Cowboys had a similar off day not too long ago and went to the beach.
The players could use a day off at this point.
UNT’s mock game comes up on Saturday.
It’s probably not a bad sign. I doubt UNT’s coaches would give the players the day off if they were not happy with where they are.
