UNT held its second big scrimmage of fall practice today over at the Darrell R. Dickey Football Practice Facility. The workout was closed to the media, but Dan McCarney and players were available after practice.
The big news is that there is no news, at least not when it comes to the big question UNT must address — the Mean Green’s quarterback situation.
McCarney said after practice that Andrew McNulty and Josh Greer are the players still under consideration. Both rotated during a workout that included a Conference USA officiating crew.
UNT addressed a host of situations during the workout. McCarney was pleased with the way both McNulty and Greer responded, saying that both made plays.
And in other tidbits from today’s workout …
– McCarney does not address injuries unless they are season-ending. UNT has some guys who are banged up at this point, but McCarney said that UNT has avoided any major problems so far.
– Shawn McKinney and Ryan Rentfo both feel like they have made major progress since last season as they compete to become UNT’s fifth starting offensive lineman. I will have more on their battle in tomorrow’s paper.
– UNT was called for 28 penalties in its first scrimmage of the fall. McCarney said that UNT has improved today, but still has work to do.
– McCarney was happy with the way his players fought through being tired at this point of camp.
– UNT’s staff planned to spent four of five hours after the scrimmage watching tape to get a better feel for who will be the 70 players on the bus when the Mean Green heads to Texas for its season-opener.
Great talk with UNT
