SMU coach June Jones made an interesting comment today that is making the rounds. Jones was talking about SMU’s schedule and mentioned that he wouldn’t be shocked if UNT shocks the world and beats Texas in its opener. UNT had a terrific year last season, but lost a ton of players. The Mean Green’s whole season comes down to the basic question if whether or not UNT can replace those guys and continue to win. There is a growing sentiment out there that UNT can do just that. Jones’ comment is just the latest sign.
On the recruiting front, we reported Monday night that Marshall offensive lineman Chett Munden has committed to UNT.
Our follow-up story that focuses on the payoff from UNT’s early-season summer events ran in today’s paper.
Munden and Converse Judson offensive lineman Abdul Beecham struck up a friendship at one of those get togethers, which played a key role in Munden committing to UNT.

And finally, the big question late in the recruiting cycle for UNT — and just about everyone else out there — is whether or not the players who committed early in the process will stick.
Mississippi JC cornerback Zavian Bingham posted on his Twitter account that he is very much committed to signing with UNT. That’s always a good sign.
