North Texas has a long history of having players make NFL teams as undrafted free agents.

Running backs Lance Dunbar and Jamize Olawale, offensive lineman Cyril Lemon and linebackers Craig Robertson and recently retired Zach Orr all began their careers as free agents.

UNT’s history in the draft hasn’t been nearly as successful. The last Mean Green player to be selected was Cody Spencer in 2004.

UNT isn’t expected to break its draft drought this season, but the Mean Green have a few players who could be intriguing pickups as free agents. The following is a look at UNT’s top prospects:

Eric Keena, punter — Keena is listed as the ninth-best prospect among punters in the draft by CBS Sports. The Keller native was a first-team All-Conference  USA selection. He averaged 43.8 yards per punt on 69 attempts and had 21 punts that covered at least 50 yards. He was named to the Ray Guy Award watch list.

James Gray, safety — Gray was one of UNT’s best defensive players and finished with 64 tackles and two fumble recoveries as a senior. He could have a chance to be invited to a camp as a free agent.

Jareid Combs, defensive end — Pass rushers are always at a premium at every level of football. Combs finished with three sacks and four quarterback hurries and could receive some interest from NFL teams.

Pulling the trigger on Tony Benford before season’s end is a bad idea

Benford

Benford

The North Texas men’s basketball team’s miserable run through its fifth season under Tony Benford continued over the weekend.

UNT was plastered by Louisiana Tech 81-57 for its eighth straight loss. The Mean Green are now alone in last place in the Conference USA standings at 0-7.

Benford is in the final year of his contract. The chances of the former Marquette assistant returning seem minuscule, baring a miracle run through the Conference USA tournament. At this point, UNT isn’t even in position to meet the meager goal of making postseason. Only the top 12 teams in C-USA, a 14-team league make the tournament.

People are upset, understandably so, considering the Mean Green averaged more than 20 wins a year and played in two NCAA tournaments in the six seasons before Benford’s arrival.

UNT fans who have reached out to me have been calling for Benford to be booted, but not at the end of the season. They want him out now.

One look at the circumstances makes it clear that parting ways with Benford before the end of the year doesn’t make sense for the program for a number of reasons.

First off, in case you missed it, Mike Canales isn’t at UNT any longer. He’s at Tennessee.

If your wondering how football and UNT’s former offensive coordinator are relevant, consider the circumstances the two times he took over the Mean Green’s headline program.

Canales was a ball of energy, was trying to build his case to become a head coach and he had the respect of the Mean Green’s players. He was a perfect pick to take over the program on an interim basis and was at least considered for the permanent job twice.

Who the heck would UNT turn to if it parted ways with Benford?

Associate head coach Rob Evans is a legendary coach with a lot of skins on the wall. He was the head coach at Arizona State and Ole Miss. He has 205 wins and six postseason bids. UNT’s players love him.

But he’s also 70. Benford is like a son to Evans because of their family ties and the time they have spent together in coaching.

There is no telling if Evans would be willing to take over UNT’s program for the remainder of the season if Benford were let go. And even if he did, would he have the energy to usher UNT’s players through the process?

UNT’s other assistants are David Anwar and Dan O’Dowd, who joined the staff this season.

Neither seem like a fit for an interim stint.

Bringing in an outsider would be a remote possibility. Finding someone who would be a fit and would come to UNT for a couple of months seems like a stretch.

There is also the challenge of trying to keep the good pieces UNT has in place for a new coach, if the school decides to go in another direction.

Players transferring has been called an epidemic in college basketball. The last thing UNT needs is to lose any of the key players it has now to another school. Jeremy Combs will be a senior next season and hasn’t redshirted. A.J. Lawson was a top 25 player in Texas and has played well as a freshman. He also hasn’t redshirted.

I doubt any of UNT’s players leave the program, but the possibility that other programs could cherry pick the roster is out there.

If UNT elects to let this play out tell the end of the season, it shortens the window for players to think about what they want to do if Benford is let go.

Another factor to keep in mind is that Benford has done a good job of making sure his players go to class and stay out of trouble for the most part. UNT’s players respect Benford. If UNT yanks him in the middle of the season, it will certainly disrupt what has generally been a pretty tightly run ship.

UNT doesn’t have a heck of a lot to sell a new coach on at this point. The fan base has dwindled. A significant number of key players are either seniors this year — J-Mychal Reese, Derail Green — or will be seniors next year, including Combs.

Getting rid of Benford midseason isn’t going to change that and it also pretty much eliminates the possibility of a miracle run in the conference tournament.

There is plenty UNT can do behind the scenes to prepare for a coaching change. School officials can gauge the interest level of potential candidates and talk to their agents.

The Final Four, which doubles as a coaches convention, will be here soon enough.

UNT can be prepared to make a move with its men’s basketball program as soon as the season is over, if that is necessary. That is exactly what happened with the switch from Mike Petersen to Jalie Mitchell in women’s basketball.

There is nearly nothing to be gained my making a move now.

The end of the season will be here soon enough.

If UNT needs to make a move — and every sign is certainly pointing that way — that is the time to go forward.

Jordan Roberts to blue shirt at UNT

Jordan Roberts, a cornerback from Ardmore, has accepted a blue shirt offer from North Texas and will join the Mean Green in the fall.

Roberts (6-0, 165) will not sign with the Mean Green on national signing day, but will begin practicing with the team during two-a-days as a walk-on. He could then be put on a scholarship that will count toward UNT’s 2018 class.

UNT cornerbacks coach Nate Brown recruited Roberts.

“Coach Brown already has a cornerback for this class,” Roberts said. “He said I could come in during the fall. I chose to go to UNT instead of going to the JUCO route.”

Several Division II schools and junior colleges offered Roberts. He considered signing with Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, a junior college that has a reputation for developing players and sending them on to Division I schools.

Roberts is planning to arrive at UNT over the summer before officially joining the team in the fall.

Roberts has been attending UNT camps over the last few years and took an unofficial visit to the school about a month ago.

OK Preps ranks Roberts No. 37 on its list of the top prospects in the state.

“I really like North Texas,” Roberts said. “Once they offered, I knew that was where I wanted to go. I took an unofficial visit about a month ago and really liked it.”

UNT has blue shirted several players since Seth Littrell took over the program.

Late night hoops rewind: Louisiana Tech 81, UNT 57

Final: Louisiana Tech 81, UNT 57

Where UNT stands: UNT fell to 6-13 after dropping its seventh straight game to open Conference USA play. The Mean Green have now lost eight games in a row overall and are alone in last place in the C-USA standings.

Now what?: UNT will return home to face Charlotte on Thursday in the first game of a three-game home stand.

Temara

Temara

Star of the day: Shane Temara came up with one of his best all-around performances in UNT’s loss to Louisiana Tech. Temara scored eight points and pulled down 12 rebounds. He also handed out three assists and hit two 3-pointers. Ja’Michael Brown was the only Mean Green player who finished in double figures with 11 points. Brown hit four of his seven shots from the field.

Say what?:

“I give North Texas a lot of credit. I thought they played hard, fast and tough. They showed some great toughness playing with a smaller lineup. They really gave us some trouble early. I just challenged our guys at halftime to play faster and tougher. I thought we were not as sharp and not working as hard, as well as a little bit on our heels. I think that was the difference and we just came out with a lot more pop [in the second half.]”

– Eric Konkol, Louisiana Tech head coach following the Bulldogs win over UNT

Our take: Well, it’s official now, UNT is in sole possession of last place in the Conference USA standings at 0-7 after being run out of the gym in the second half of its game against Louisiana Tech.

UNT was down just three points at halftime before Louisiana Tech exploded for 48 points in the second half.

The two teams that finish at the bottom of the C-USA standings will not make the C-USA tournament. UNT is looking like a prime candidate to sit at home in the postseason.

And that isn’t the end of the bad news for UNT. Head coach Tony Benford shelved star forward Jeremy Combs after he turned his ankle in a loss to Southern Miss on Thursday. Combs had offseason ankle surgery and missed four games earlier in the season to rest the ankle.

Combs hasn’t been himself all year, which makes one wonder if UNT might not have been better off redshirting its best player.

Highly regarded SMU transfer Keith Frazier also didn’t play. He has missed five games and played in just four since becoming eligible at the semester break.

UNT will now play three C-USA teams it lost to earlier in the season, including Charlotte and Rice, two teams that hung 101 points on the Mean Green.

UNT will have gone more than a month without a win when it takes the court for its next game.

UNT-Louisiana Tech running blog

The North Texas women’s basketball team will take on Louisiana Tech this afternoon at the Super Pit, and once again we are along for the ride here on the blog.

UNT (6-11) beat Southern Miss in its last game and is 3-3 in Conference USA play. Louisiana Tech is also 3-3 in C-USA play and is 8-9 overall.

This is the first meeting between the teams since former UNT assistant coach Scott Stoehr and his wife Brooke Stoehr took over Louisiana Tech’s program. We talked about the Stoehr’s connections with UNT in today’s paper.

UNT is led by guards Terriell Bradley and Terra Ellison, who are averaging 12.9 points and 10.0 points per game, respectively. Louisiana Tech is also a guard-oriented team that is paced by sophomore Jasmine LeBlanc, who is averaging 12.8 points per game.

Stay tuned. I will update the blog throughout the game.

Starters for UNT — Terriell Bradley, Terra Ellison, Kelsey Criner, Tosin Mabodu and Candice Adams.

4:58 — UNT is down 8-7 at the first media timeout. Candice Adams hit a 3 and is UNT’s leading scoring so far with those three points. Louisiana Tech is sitting back in a zone and has forced UNT to fire away from deep. UNT is 1-for-6.

Terra Ellison has seven points for the Mean Green. Louisiana Tech doesn’t have a turnover in the second quarter after having seven in the first period.

13.0 — Louisiana Tech is up 27-25 and just took a timeout to set up a final shot this half.

Halftime — UNT is down 27-25 at halftime here at the Super Pit The Mean Green were down by as many as four points late in the first half in what has turned into a defensive struggle. Terra Ellison has nine points for UNT. The game has been pretty even across the board the whole way.

4:50 — UNT is up 37-35 in the third quarter. Louisiana Tech is headed to the line. Candice Adams has hit two big 3s this quarter, when UNT has three makes from behind the arc overall. Adams has 12 points to lead the Mean Green, all from 3-point range.

Final — Louisiana Tech 72, UNT 65.

Second big recruiting weekend on tap

North Texas is inching closer to national signing day. There are two weekends left before Feb. 1.

That makes this weekend a big one for the Mean Green.

UNT has done a good job of keeping its list of who is visiting under wraps. I’ve also had very little luck in getting calls returned from players the Mean Green have committed.

What we do know at this point is that UNT is sitting 10th in 247Sports rankings of the classes in Conference USA.

The question is if UNT can make a late run.

There have been a few players with offers from UNT who are visiting other schools this weekend. Wide receiver DeAndre McNeal is at UCLA this weekend and Florida Atlantic next weekend.

UCLA is seen as the favorite with FAU also in the hunt, according to the guys at 247Sports.

UNT appears to be the favorite for Navarro College linebacker Tavares Thomas, who is at Middle Tennessee this weekend. He should be in Denton next weekend.

Ohio running back Morgan Ellison is at Indiana, where he is expected to land.

Justin Northwest wide receiver Gavin Holmes is at Baylor.

North Texas at Louisiana Tech

When: 6 p.m. Saturday

Where: Thomas Assembly Center, Ruston, Louisiana

Radio: KHYI-FM 95.3, KNTU-FM 88.1

Records: UNT 6-12, 0-6 Conference USA; Louisiana Tech 13-6, 5-1 Conference USA

Last game: Southern Miss 75, UNT 65; Louisiana Tech 74, UNT 64

Projected UNT starting lineup:

PG: J-Mychal Reese, 6-2, Sr. — Reese scored just three points on three shots in 20 minutes in UNT’s loss to Southern Miss. He had scored in double figures in five of his previous six games. The senior is averaging 9.1 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

G: Ja’Michael Brown, 6-5, So. — Brown hit just one of his six shots from the field and scored three points in UNT’s loss to Southern Miss. He has scored nine points combined in his last two games after exploding for 21 in a loss to Middle Tennessee. The sophomore is averaging 5.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.

G: A.J. Lawson, 6-5, Fr. — Lawson has been one of UNT’s most effective offensive players over the last two weeks and is coming off a 14-point outing in the Mean Green’s loss to Southern Miss. He has scored in double figures in three straight games and is averaging 9.8 points per game.

F: Jeremy Combs, 6-7, Jr. — Combs scored a season-low three points on 1-of-4 shooting in UNT’s loss to Southern Miss and has failed to reach double figures in each of the Mean Green’s last two games. He is averaging 10.2 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

F: Derail Green, 6-7, Sr. — Green scored a season-high 17 points and grabbed six rebounds in UNT’s loss to Southern Miss. The senior went 5-for-10 from 3-point range and is averaging 6.8 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.

Scouting Louisiana Tech: The Bulldogs have won six of their last seven games and are tied for second place in the C-USA standings with UAB at 5-1. Middle Tennessee is 6-0. Louisiana Tech ranks fourth in the league with an average of 77.1 points per game. Senior forward Eric McCree is averaging 17.3 points per game and is one of three Louisiana Tech players averaging double figures.

What you need to know: UNT’s season is rapidly going down the drain heading into its game against Louisiana Tech today. The Mean Green have dropped seven straight games and have lost by at least 10 points in each of their last three.

UNT is tied with Florida International for last place in the C-USA standings at 0-6 and is in danger of being one of two teams from the league to not make the conference tournament.

UNT has a habit of going through long scoring droughts, a trend that came back to haunt the Mean Green again in their loss to Southern Miss. UNT didn’t hit its first shot from the field until 14:11 mark and later went five minutes without scoring.

Several of UNT’s key offensive players struggled against the Golden Eagles. Combs and Reese both scored just three points.

Deckie Johnson returned to UNT’s lineup in its last game, but that didn’t help much. The senior scored just six points on a pair of 3s.

This game sets up horribly for the Mean Green. Louisiana Tech has won six of its last seven games and is 9-2 at home. UNT is 1-19 on the road since the beginning of last season.

Thoughts on a shocking end to UNT great Zach Orr’s career

College athletes come and go in an endless cycle. Some make a huge impact for the programs they play for, others pass through the doors without making a ripple.

Every once in a while, one helps change the course of a program.

Zach Orr was just such a player for North Texas. He was great for the Mean Green and beat the odds to become great for the Baltimore Ravens.

And now it’s all over.

In what has to rank as one of the more surprising turn of events for a former UNT player in recent memory, Orr is retiring due to a neck condition. The news came out this morning.

Orr has a congenital back/spine condition that puts him in danger of suffering a serious injury.

Orr suffered two herniated discs in his neck in the Ravens’ final game of the regular season. A follow-up MRI revealed Orr had a serious condition that would force him into retirement.

“I’m really just blessed and thankful that we were able to find this problem,” Orr told Ryan Mink, a writer for the Ravens official website. “The doctors and Ravens medical staff probably ended up saving my life, and definitely allowed me to live a normal lifestyle.

“I’’ blessed and thankful that I’m able to walk away from the game in good health.”

Here is a link to the Ravens site that includes a video interview with Orr.

Orr made the Ravens’ roster as an undrafted rookie free agent and saw his role expand quickly. He finished his final season with 132 tackles to go along with three interceptions one forced fumble. He ranked eighth in the NFL in tackles in the regular season.

Orr’s rise was a compelling tale of perseverance and something to celebrate when it came to UNT’s football program.

Several players have made it in the NFL as undrafted free agents after finishing their careers at UNT, including Craig Robertson and Brad Kassell. All have been vital success stories for a program that hasn’t had a player drafted since Cody Spencer in 2004.

Orr was just as important to the Mean Green in his time as a player. He led UNT in tackles in three straight seasons beginning in 2011 and helped lead the Mean Green to a win over UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl at the end of the 2013 season.

Orr will be in the UNT Hall of Fame in the future.

There is also no doubt he will be successful now that his playing career is over. I had a chance to talk with Orr back in the spring of 2015 at UNT’s pro day. Orr had come back to watch his former teammates work out and talked about the importance of managing the money he had made in the NFL.

Orr will now turn the page to the next chapter in his life. He could coach in high school or college or turn to another avenue.

There is just little doubt that Orr, who did so much for UNT both as a player and as a representative of the program after he left the school, will be successful in whatever he does.

Late-night hoops rewind: Southern Miss 75, UNT 65

Final: Southern Miss 75, North Texas 65

Where UNT stands: UNT fell to 6-12 after dropping its sixth straight game to open Conference USA play. The Mean Green have now lost seven straight games.

Now what?: The Mean Green will look to break through for their firs win in C-USA play on Saturday at Louisiana Tech, which is 13-6 overall and 5-1 in C-USA play.

Green

Green

Star of the day: Derail Green came off the bench to score 17 points and grab six rebounds before fouling out of UNT’s loss to Southern Miss. Green went 5-for-10 from 3-point range against Southern Miss. UNT had three players finish in double figures. Ryan Woolridge finished with 15 points and A.J. Lawson added 14 for the Mean Green. UNT’s trio of players in double figures helped keep the Mean Green in the game on a night several of its key players struggled. Jeremy Combs and J-Mychal Reese both finished with three points.

Say what?:

“We played a better second half down the stretch. We came out flat in the first half and fell behind early. I thought A.J. Lawson and Ryan Woolridge gave us a spark in the second half.”

– Tony Benford, UNT coach on the Mean Green’s performance in their loss to Southern Miss.

Our take: UNT matched is longest losing streak of the Tony Benford era with its loss to Southern Miss. The Mean Green have now dropped seven straight and remain in a tie for last place in the C-USA standings with Florida International at 0-6.

UNT did get Deckie Johnson back in its lineup and saw him respond with two 3s and six points.

The Mean Green’s problem was they didn’t show up early in the first half and went through another tough stretch offensively early in the second half. Southern Miss led 10-1 before Reese hit a layup for UNT’s first field goal at the 14:11 mark.

UNT fought back and took an 18-17 lead on a Ja’Michael Brown 3, but then went more then five minutes without scoring.

The Mean Green trailed by 20 points late before making a cosmetic run.

The big question now for UNT is how long it will go without another win. UNT’s next game at Louisiana Tech doesn’t look promising . The Mean Green have already lost to Charlotte, Old Dominion and Rice, the teams they will face when they return to the Super Pit.

UNT has games against Florida Atlantic and Florida International, two other C-USA cellar-dwellers in early February, but both of those games are on the road. The Mean Green have won just one road game since the beginning of last season and are 1-19 away from the Super Pit in that span.

To make matters worse, UNT still hasn’t gotten Keith Frazier back from a knee injury yet.

The way things are going, it seems like a foregone conclusion that this will go down as one of the worst seasons in an awfully long time for UNT.

UNT- Southern Miss running blog

The North Texas women’s basketball team will face Southern Miss at the Super Pit tonight, and once again we are along for the ride here on the blog.

The Mean Green lost a heart-breaker in their last outing, falling at home to Rice 51-49.

UNT has played some terrific defense this year, which was the subject of a little feature I wrote for today’s paper.

Southern Miss is a quick team that likes to pressure opponents and get out and run.

The key for UNT today will be to take care of the ball, which will be tough with both Candice Adams and Kelsey Criner at less than 100 percent.

Stay tuned. I will update the blog throughout the game.
