McCarney to be head coach, Canales’ future unclear BY BEN BABY

Senior Staff Writer The final crowd to witness a game at Fouts Field on Saturday chanted the name of interim head coach Mike Canales. It may have been the last time he was on the sidelines for the Mean Green. According to multiple media outlets, UNT will name University of Florida defensive line coach Dan McCarney as the team’s next head coach. The school will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. today, which will be streamed live on The impending naming of McCarney as the head coach leaves a cloud over the future of Canales. It is unclear if Canales will remain the school’s offensive coordinator or become head coach of another program. No matter what choice Canales makes, it is clear that in the five games he has been head coach, he has made a significant impact on the Mean Green, which went 2-3 in his tenure. When asked what percentage of

Before joining the Mean Green, Canales was the offensive coordinator at the University of South Florida from 2007 to 2009. In the final five games of the season, the Mean Green offense exploded, averaging 34.2 points per game. Prior to that, UNT was only averaging 16.3 points a contest. “It’s like lightning in a bottle,” Akpunku said. “There’s so much passion.

In his five years at UNT, Robertson has never seen this kind of passion and excitement from the team. The linebacker said they have never had fun in the five years he’s spent in Denton. “I’ve seen guys walk away from their teammates,” Robertson said. “Now, it’s a completely different feel. I love coming up to the [athletic center] just to see film, because I know I’m going to see one of my brothers.” After the game, Canales discussed what he wanted in his immediate future. “We want to be here,” Canales said about himself and his wife, Carol. “But if they choose to go another direction, I have my lock and chain, and I hope that another university or program out there will look at coach Canales as a possible coaching candidate. It’s time for coach Canales to be a head football coach.”

The Student Money Management Center is having a workshop today that will give students advice on how to handle their money problems with friends and family.

Center offers money advice BY JACQUELINE FLUSCHE Staff Writer

Students struggling with balancing money issues in their family, friendship and dating relationships may be able to get help through a Money and Relationships workshop today. T he St udent Money Management Center will cover information and advice about how to balance and discuss money issues from 1-2 p.m. in Business Administration Building 166. “We’re sort of going to go over what money means to certain people in relationships,” said Kameron Lewellen, workshop presenter and peer mentor for the center. Lewellen said he and his co-presenter, peer mentor Emily Deatrich, will begin the workshop by giving their own personal stories. Deatrich will speak about an experience she had in a dating relationship, and Lewellen will talk about his experience with friends. “I think college students, whether they’re dating someone or they’re in a social or friend relationship, money is just one of those things — it’s tight in college,” Lewellen said. Following personal testimonies, Lewellen said, they will discuss the issues’ effects, such as what couples can do to make communicating about money less complicated and other concerns couples face. They will discuss

how to deal with arguments, ways to understand how to make the right judgments when lending money to friends or family and how to talk about repaying people. Rachel Grimes, program coordinator for the center, said this workshop will be beneficial to students because everyone has people who they talk about money with, and most are not financially independent. “This is just a good way to see, ‘Where do my values lie? What maybe are some issues that I need to discuss with someone in my life?’” Grimes said. Lewellen also mentioned that there will be activities for workshop attendees, including getting a list of scenarios to discuss. Some students thought the workshop sounded promising. “I think if people go their eyes will be opened with new ideas,” said Keith Guerrero, a philosophy junior. Chrissy Lee, a psychology sophomore, also thought the program would be helpful. “You just can’t assume that everybody knows how to handle their money correctly — how to handle it with close friends or family,” Lee said. “So I think it will be very beneficial.” For more information about the Money and Relationships workshop, call 940-369-7761 or send an e-mail to kameron.lewellen@

Around 9:30 a.m. Monday, a three-car collision occurred, resulting in a driver’s death. A flatbed truck was reportedly stopped on the with another car stopped behind it. The third car crashed into the back of the second car. The driver of the second car, whose name has not been released, was k illed, t he Denton Police Department said. Officers at the scene could not confirm whether the collision or other medical problems were the cause of death. The wreck led to chaotic traffic from Corinth through Denton. For hours, frus-

Denton store to provide all-vegan options BY LORYN THOMPSON Intern

The vegan community of Denton awa its t he a rriva l of the city’s first all-vegan store. Vegan Freak has been on the verge of opening since Nov. 1 and will open its doors within the next two weeks, said co-owner Abbey Autry. “It’s a convenience a nd gift store,” Autry said. “We’ll have snack foods, sweets, body care, cleaning products ... all produced by 100 percent vegan companies.” The store partially stemmed from her passion for finding d i st i nc t ive item s on t he

A look back in the North Texas Daily archives shows more than 100 articles written by Katie Grivna. The stories reflect dedication and passion from the journalism junior, who was chosen as the editorin-chief for the spring 2011 semester. Grivna has worked for the Daily for two-and-a-half years and is the Arts and Life editor this semester. She wants to make information more immediate and accessible. Gr iv na ra n t he Da i ly ’s Twitter and Facebook pages this semester and said it’s vital to follow the trends of students. “College students are really busy people on the go,” Grivna said. “You have to give them their news in a way they can consume it quickly. I think socia l med ia is a way to approach news that is more cohesive to their lifestyle.” With the Mayborn School of Journalism taking over the Denton Public Access Channel on Jan. 1, Grivna takes over at a critical time for the Daily.

She will help merge the Daily and the newly named Denton Community Television. Although she said she wants to learn more about broadcast, Grivna said she knows DCTV will a useful tool for students. “There will be a learning c u r ve, but we w i l l lea r n toget her,” she sa id. “T he channel is a way to get more info to students and residents

Christina Mlynski, a senior sta f f w riter under Griv na. “She has the experience. She can really relate to the writers and show them areas they can get better. She has been a g reat teacher a nd rea l ly guides you with her personal experience.” As a freshman intern during her first semester at UNT, Grivna became friends with fellow Arts and Life writer Graciela Razo, who is now the Scene editor. The two have grown close over the years, and Razo saw firsthand what Grivna could accomplish. “She always goes above and beyond what is necessary,” Razo said. “She is willing to take risks and is never satisfied with something just being good. Katie understands how to tell a story and not just put words down on paper.” Although she has accomplished a lot during her time at the Daily, Grivna said there is always room to improve. “I envision having a really diverse and well-rounded staff so that we can all learn from each other,” Grivna said. “I want this to be a place where students can learn from each other because that’s how this paper will grow and blossom.”

Other choices available Continued from Page 1 External Scholarships E x ter na l schola r sh ips, according to the office’s website, are funded by private agencies and organizations. The Scholarship Library is on the second level of the department’s offices in the Eagle Student Services Center, where students can search for external options. Other resources provided on its website give students information and guidance. One of the seven links in the section is veteran scholarships, which lists more than 60 military scholarships. Cursten Duncan, a general

studies senior and cadet major in the Air Force ROTC, is pleased to see that there are so many for military members. “It is very important to make future students aware of these options,” she said. Goodwin also suggests using national scholarships search engines like that of “The most important thing is to utilize your resources so that when things occur you know best how to react,” she said.

Glee Club to perform Wednesday, Thursday By Tim monzingo Senior Staff Writer

A semester of rehearsals and hard work will come to fruition this week as UNT’s Glee Club launches its fall finale Wednesday and Thursday. The events start at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium Building and showcase about 18 songs the club’s members have prepared for the past three months. “We have a lot of really good numbers that we’ve prepared,” said club treasurer and education junior Kendall Butler. “I think that it’s going to be epic.” Members of the group will sing and dance numbers to songs like “Teeth” by Lady Gaga, Elton John’s “Imagine” and “That’s How You Know” from the musical “Enchanted.” Tickets can be purchased for $5 at the door or at the Information Booth on the third level of the University Union. Jose Coira, president of the club and a radio, television and film

senior, said proceeds will pay for a trip to Orlando, where UNT’s performers will face off against a Florida-based chapter. Coira said he encourages students to attend because Glee offers something that isn’t offered in the music school: song and dance in the same place. “It’s something that’s totally different that UNT has to offer,” he said. “It’s the best of both worlds.” The organization began in January and since then has grown in popularity, ability and size, he said. “It’s been quite successful,” he said. “It’s bigger and better [than last semester.]” Despite the club’s growth, Butler said he hopes the performances will help get the group’s name out to the students and faculty. “A lot of people still don’t know that UNT has a glee club and so we’re really excited to get our name out there more,” he said. “We want

to give people the opportunity and let them know there is a glee club and we love music as much as everybody else.” Butler was treasurer for the organization when it began in spring 2010 and said he has seen the members grow in their abilities and appreciation for the work. “Last semester it was chaotic because it was fresh and we were new [and] it’s just evolved. It’s more organized and we are a lot more talented,” he said. “Music is so much more important to us than it was last year.” Hospitality management freshman Nicole Wegienka said she would love to go and wished the performers luck. “Go Mean Green Glee,” she said. Coira said for aspiring singers or dancers, auditions for the club will be held during the first week of the spring 2011 semester. For more information on the club and upcoming events, visit

Green Tones hit right note for competition By Jessica DeTiBeriis Staff Writer

The UNT Green Tones have been selected as the only a cappella group in Texas to compete in the 15th annual International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. “We’re very excited and honored to be chosen,” said Trent Bynum, a radio, television and film junior and Green Tones secretary and co-founder. The Competition The tournament is broken into five regions, said Amanda Newman, the executive director for Varsity Vocals, the organization hosting the competition. The Green Tones will compete in the southern region against seven other groups at the quarterfinal in Georgia in February. There are four quarterfinals within each region, she said, and the top two groups from each quarterfinal advance to the semifinal competition. One team from each semifinal will advance to the finals at New York City’s Lincoln Center in April. The Green Tones will compete against a group from the University of Central Florida, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, Tulane University in Louisiana, the University of Georgia, and two groups from Emory University in Georgia. The winner will receive a cash prize that varies year to year and is yet to be determined for the 2011 contest, Newman said. “Most groups just do it for the glory,” Newman said. “A lot of it is the experience. It’s a great opportu-

The group has 16 members this year. “Not everybody knows about a cappella music,” Bynum said. “We want to bring fresh ideas to songs people have heard around the world. We want to bring a new style and originality to everything we perform.” The group formally applied for the ICCA competition and sent in an audition tape. Now that they’ve been accepted, members of the Green Tones are focusing on hitting the notes and working on their visual performance, Alexander said.

The Green Tones will perform in the Kerr Hall lobby at 7 p.m. Their next concert will be held at 8 p.m. Dec. 7 at Art Six Coffee House. Both events are free. The group will accept donations for its travel and hotel expenses, as the trip could cost $500-$600 minimum, Alexander said. The championship will be the Green Tones’ first “official competition,” Alexander said. Last summer, the group competed for a spot on the NBC television show “The Sing-Off,” and did not make it as far as it would have liked. But it’s using the constructive criticism from the show’s judges to prepare for the competition in February. “The reason we all got involved was just to go out and have fun,” Alexander said. “The big thing, more than anything, is just having a good time and making it a memorable experience.”

Journalist’s book feasts on life’s adventures BY CHRISTINA MLYNSKI Senior Staff Writer

After another day of emotional and physical strain, surrounded by war and the leftover ruins of collapsed buildings, a group of journalists would gather on the first floor of a hotel in Baghdad to enjoy the company of one another and eat exotic foods in 2003. “Peace Meals: Candy-Wrapped Kalashnikovs and Other War Stories,” written by Anna Badkhen, takes readers on a rollercoaster ride through the intensity of war, forming friendships through conflict and remaining human even in people’s darkest hours. Sponsored by the Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism, Badkhen will end her book tour at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Gateway Center 43 and 47. “Every meal becomes a Thanksgiving for having survived that day,” Badkhen said. “Food unites a family, strangers become friends, and it’s a gesture of gratitude that’s so heavy with meaning because it plays a huge role in our lives.”

“Every meal becomes a Thanksgiving for having survived that day.”

—Anna Badkhen Journalist and author

Making the Meal What: Anna Badkhen Reception and Book Discussion Where: Gateway Center Room 43/47

“Peace Meals” covers 10 years of Badkhen’s experiences as a war correspondent in countries such as Iraq and Kenya. Each chapter ends with a recipe in honor of a person mentioned in the book, she said. “It’s about how we’re able to remain human and how our humanity, love and kindness persevere in the most dire circumstances,” Badkhen said. Thorne Anderson of the journalism faculty asked Badkhen to speak at UNT because he said she breaks the stereotypes of a correspondent. “Conflicts which are in the news are often only highlighted by their worst aspects,” he said. “Anna’s approach in telling them through encounters with meals

really humanizes the people.” A nderson worked w it h Badkhen in Iraq when they both were staff members of the San Francisco Chronicle. He said she is his favorite type of reporter because she sees issues from a different perspective. “Anna always maintains a more personal relationship with people, and the side benefit is that it makes the stories that much better,” he said. Najdah Khan, a photojournalism sophomore, said she believes anyone can relate to Badkhen’s book. “This could teach you a way of being able to understand individuals you may feel are nothing like you because we’re all connected on some level, especially through

food,” she said. Badkhen said she wants “Peace Meals” to leave an impression on the readers and audience members. “Travel with your heart open, stay vulnerable to everything you see, never allow your opinions to ossify and make sure everything you see is new, even if it’s something you see every day,” she said.

The 100-seat RANDALL O. theater in the PETERS Environmental Educ at ion, Science a nd Technology Building is one of the few places people can find planetarium shows in the area, Peters said. A planetarium is a theater where the night sky is recreated with projection instruments.

UNT’s theater uses a Digistar III projection system. It comes off a computer, not film, Peters said. LANCE U s u a l l y POWERS people think of planetariums as a roof opening in a building to see the sky, Peters said. A roof does not open up for people to see the sky as it is done in observatories, he said. With the planetarium, people can distinguish its difference from an observatory, which is

looking through a telescope to see the real sky. Astronomer Phil Plait started a blog debunking misconceptions about astronomy. Later, he started a website, w w w.b a d a s t r onom y.c om , and then wrote a book. The book inspired a movie, Peters said. Misconceptions usually are hard to erase from the general public’s mind. “L i ke people [t houg ht] that the Earth is the center of the universe at one time, you would think that because when you look up it looks like

Sky theater show addresses astronomy myths BY NANA A DWOA A NTWI-BOASIAKO Intern

The UNT Sky Theater is showing “Bad Astronomy: Myths and Misconceptions.” “T h is pa r t icu la r show addresses a lot of things that people have misconceptions about,” said Randall O.

The show continues until the beginning of April, he said. “As a college, the university’s job is to expand knowledge and to open minds.

Coaches bring experience to women’s basketball team Assistants give aspirations to UNT By BoBBy Lewis Staff Writer

Optimism was high for the women’s basketball team at the start of the new season with new faces all over the court. However, the new faces on the bench could make the biggest difference. The Mean Green struggled through a 9-22 campaign last season that ended with the departure of two assistant coaches, Johnetta Hayes and Jalie Mitchell, over the summer. Both were hired to be on the University of North Carolina-Wilmington staff. “When you hire good people and they do a good job for you, it’s hard for others not to notice, as was the case with coaches Hayes and Mitchell,” UNT head coach Shanice Stephens said. In July, Stephens announced that she had hired two new people to make a trio of assistant coaches to help the team build as a championship contender. “It was important that we bring in people who had knowledge of x’s and o’s and also good people-persons as well,” Stephens said. “Both positions are actually stronger now and they fit perfectly into what we needed as a staff.”

Margaret Richards Before she made her way to UNT, Margaret Richards was an assistant coach at two different stops. Her most recent job was head coach of the Saint Augustine College women’s basketball team. “There’s really no adjustment right now,” Richards said about returning to an assistant coaching position. “I’m a little bit behind the scenes now, and I’ve mentally prepared myself for that because I wanted to work more as an assistant coach.” Richards got her start on the basketball court as a freshman with the University of Nebraska. During her four years with the Cornhuskers, the team grabbed a spot in the Top 25 national rankings. “Being as that I played at the highest level, I understand sometimes what [the players] are going through,” she said. “I see the frustration on their face when they make a couple of mistakes and I just try to pull them to the side and tell them a couple of positive

things to help.” Richards learned of the opening through her long friendship with Stephens. She will help with recruiting and guard development.

Jimmy Stellato Like the three coaches he shares the bench with this season, Jimmy Stellato played college basketball at a high level before getting into coaching.

when he was recommended to Stephens for the open position. Those 20 years began with an interesting breakthrough into the coaching ranks. “I started coaching when I was in junior college, but I was coaching my girlfriend’s intramural team,” McNeil said. “I was playing basketball and she just said, ‘Larry, coach our team.’ But it was fun.”

“Both positions are actually stronger now and they fit perfectly into what we needed as a staff.” —Shanice Stephens Head women’s basketball coach Stellato began at Southwest Texas State University — now called Texas State University — for a year before transferring to play at LeTourneau University for his final three years. Stellato earned National Christian College Athletic Association All-Region honors during the 1997 season. “As a former player, you just learn so much about what the players go through on a day-today basis,” he said. Stellato got his start in coaching as the assistant men’s basketball coach at East Texas Baptist University for three seasons before moving to other jobs. Interestingly, Stellato coached down the road at TWU, which the Mean Green played at the start of the season in an exhibition, just two years ago. Stellato will work primarily with the post players, something that has reigning Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year Jasmine Godbolt excited. “I like working with him because he’s a big man and he knows exactly what we are like and the moves we need to make,” she said.

Larry McNeil Larry McNeil is the only assistant coach to return from last season, and this is his first full season on the UNT bench. “I would say it was tough,” McNeil said about last season. “It’s tough on any coach to come in mid-year.” McNeil joined the team in January. He brought 20 years of coaching experience to the court

While in school, McNeil played basketball and baseball for Talladega College. He would later pick up 63 wins as the head basketball coach at Talladega. The former point guard will work with UNT’s guards and help with recruiting. The Mean Green is 1-5 this season so far and is on the road to face Drake at 7 tonight.

The UNT men’s basketball team did plenty to get in its own way early but continued to play its best basketball down the stretch and won its first road game of the season on Friday. Down as many as 14 points in the second half, the Mean Green (4-1) overcame 19 turnovers by outscoring Texas State University 28-12 in the game’s final five minutes and secured a 81-77 comeback win over the Bobcats (2-3). “We knew coming in this was going to be a tough one,” head coach Johnny Jones said. “Texas State played like their backs were against the wall, and they caught us off of our game early.” Heading into the second half down 10 points, the Mean Green offense caught fire, shooting 69 percent from the field. “We’ve been able to pick up our game and play better in the second half, but it shouldn’t be that way,” senior guard Tristan Thompson said. “There are teams on our schedule that will beat us if we don’t start playing better earlier on.” Thompson and senior guard Josh White fueled the comeback, making a combined 9-11 3-pointers. Thompson led all scorers with 23 points on 6-7 shooting from 3-point range while White made six free throw attempts in the game’s final 1:41 to seal the victory. Strong post play kept things close for UNT, as junior forward Kedrick Hogans scored 14 points while senior forward George Odufuwa finished with 11 points and nine rebounds.

UT-Arlington The Mean Green returns home

Senior forward George Odufuwa goes up for a shot against Rice on Nov. 23. to face an old rival located 30 minutes down the road when it hosts UT-Arlington at 7 p.m. tonight. Plenty of recent history exists between the two teams, including a double-overtime victory for UNT at UTA last season. White poured in 35 points and the Mean Green went to the line 57 times in a game that saw 19 lead changes. The Mustangs (5-1) had defeated the Mean Green in the teams’ five previous contests. “It’s easy to see why there might be a rivalry between us and UTA,” White said. “Most of the guys here remember when they beat us and the great game last season and we

know they’ll be tough.” UTA enters the game with much confidence, winning four straight after suffering its only loss at Oregon State two weeks ago. “They’re going to give us their best effort, and if we’re not ready they will beat us,” Jones said. “We’re excited about the opportunity to play them.” Dallas native and freshman forward LaMarcus Reed will challenge the Mean Green big men on the low post. The Skyline High School graduate leads the teams with 16.5 points per game and is second on the team in rebounding at 5.8 rebounds per game.

After 58 years, Fouts locks the gate

By Ben BaBy

Senior Staff Writer It was the last game for 22 seniors. It might have been the last game for interim head coach Mike Canales and the 262nd and final game at Fouts Field. When Kansas State and UNT finished their matchup on a frigid Saturday evening, it was the Wildcats who picked up the last win on the historic field, defeating the Mean Green 49-41. The loss was the Mean Green’s 100th loss at Fouts Field. The 21,952 fans in attendance witnessed a career day for junior running back Lance Dunbar, who racked up 270 yards on 22 carries. Three of those carries were touchdowns of 52, 63 and 36 yards. D u nba r su r pa s se d h i s previous career high, a 238-yard effort against Florida Atlantic last season. The junior finished the night 21 yards shy of the school record, set by Jamario Thomas in 2004. Dunbar did not practice until Wednesday and was hampered coming into the game with an injury he sustained against Louisiana-Monroe. “I told the seniors before the game that I was going to leave it out there for them,” Dunbar said. “Even though I was hurt and wasn’t 100 percent, I played like it.” Kansas State running back Da n iel T homa s v i r t ua l ly matched Dunbar yard for yard, picking up 269 yards on 36 carries and two touchdowns. The last time a running back had at least 200 yards against the Mean Green was in 1993, when Northeast Louisiana’s Irving Spikes rushed for 294 yards. Led by the steady ground attack of Thomas, the Wildcats picked up 373 rushing yards. It was the most rushing yards by a Mean Green opponent this season.

The Green Blur leaves lasting image on Fouts - Rushed for 270 yards. - Second best rushing performance in school history.


- Had touchdown runs of 52, 63 and 36 yards. - Scored the final touchdown at Fouts Field on a 17-yard reception. - Finished the season with 1,553 yards, fourth most in the NCAA and third most in team history. - Is 941 yards and five touchdowns short of being the all-time leader in both categories at UNT. For the second straight week, the Mean Green allowed 49 points in a loss. It was the third time in four games that UNT allowed its opponent to score at least 40 points. “It was a shame we couldn’t win, but at the same time, we showed a lot about ourselves a nd what t he prog ra m is

“I know deep down that they tried their hardest.”

—Craig Robertson Senior linebacker

going to see in the future, and that’s what’s important, is the future,” senior offensive lineman Esteban Santiago said. Since his first start against Louisiana-Monroe in 2007, redshirt senior linebacker Craig Robertson has started in 40 consecutive games. His final game in a green-and-white uniform was his finest, piling

up a career-high 16 tackles in the loss. Robertson may have ended his career with a loss, but he was still smiling after the game. “I don’t see t hat loss,” Robertson said. “We had 60 to 70 guys, even guys that didn’t play, who left everything they had on the field. If they played one play, two plays, I know deep down that they tried their hardest, and they poured it out.” One of the game’s most exciting points came at the end of the third quarter, when the special teams of both squads lit up the field. Following a touchdown run by Thomas, freshman wide receiver Brelan Chancellor returned the ensuing kickoff 93 yards. The touchdown was his second on a kickoff return in as many games. Wildcats receiver Aubrey Quarles answered on the next play, shrugging off a few tackles to take the ball into the end zone on a 92-yard return. Things took a frightening and somber turn early in the fourth quarter, when redshirt

sophomore quarterback Riley Dodge was thumped at the Ka nsas State 17-ya rd line. Dodge was motionless on his back for a few minutes before exiting the field on a stretcher. He moved and was taken to the hospital for X-rays. “As an offensive lineman, I’m his bodyguard,” Santiago said. “And to see him get hit and to see him go down, it hurts deep. It hurts really deep.” A f ter t he ga me, discussion focused on who would be named the next head coach of the Mean Green. Robertson and junior linebacker Brandon Akpunku said 100 percent of the team wants Canales to lead the team next season. Since taking over on Oct. 20, Canales went 2-3, his only five games of head-coaching experience. Canales made it very clear that he wants to be the next head coach at UNT. “I believe in kids, I believe in this program, I believe in this university,” Canales said. “I’ve said it over and over again. I know I’m capable of being a head football coach. I want to be the head football coach of the University of North Texas.”

Football players disrepected during hiring process Editorial As the final seconds ticked off the clock and the life of Fouts Field during the Mean Green’s 49-41 loss to Kansas State, the students began a “Mike Canales” chant that lasted for three minutes. The entire UNT team chanted and clapped along with the crowd, expressing its desire for Canales to be the Mean Green football team’s permanent head coach. There was also a “We Want Chico” chant from the alumni section during the game’s first quarter. UNT President V. Lane Rawlins and athletic director Rick Villarreal stood on the field listening to the chant, but the effort was moot. The worst-kept secret in UNT history will be made official at 1 p.m. today. A press conference is scheduled to announce former Iowa State head coach Dan McCarney as the man who will lead the Mean Green into its new $78 million stadium as head coach in 2011. The Editorial Board does not agree with the way the situation was handled. Several players have aired their frustrations on Facebook, and one senior pointed out that Villarreal had been in the locker room after every game home and away but was nowhere to be found Saturday night when the team wanted to make a statement. During the press conference after the game, senior linebacker Craig Robertson, junior defensive end Brandon Akpunku and junior running back Lance Dunbar adamantly said that “100 percent” of the team wanted Canales to be the coach. Players said they have tried to reach out to both Villarreal and Rawlins, but neither would speak with them. One of UNT’s top players has indicated he might not return because of the lack of respect shown to the players by Rawlins and Villarreal. The Editorial Board feels that whether it weighs on the decision, the players’ voices should at least be heard. After 25 years of experience, Canales said he is ready to be a head coach. His players said they trust and respect him and played the last five games of 2010 to earn him the job. The Editorial Board feels Canales will make a great head coach and should have been offered the job here, but would love to see him stay as offensive coordinator. Reports started two weeks ago that McCarney would be the head coach at UNT, which makes the Editorial Board wonder just how extensive the “search” for the next head coach was. During his 12 years with the Cyclones, McCarney was 56-85, took Iowa State to five bowl games and won two. McCarney also spent 11 seasons as an assistant at Iowa under former UNT coach and college football Hall of Famer Hayden Fry, which gives him an instant Mean Green connection. While it disagrees with the choice, the Editorial Board hopes McCarney is successful in his tenure and welcomes him to UNT.

McCarney should imitate SMU Saturday not only marked the final UNT football game at Fouts Field, but the final game for interim head coach Mike Canales. Former Iowa State head coach Dan McCarney w ill succeed Todd Dodge as head of the Mean Green, despite the support of students and players for Canales. But I’m not writing to argue for or against Canales or McCarney because the fact of the matter is the new head coach, no matter who it is, will have a lofty task on his hands – turning around a struggling football program. The Mean Green hasn’t had a winning season since 2004, the same year the program last won the Sun Belt Conference Championship and appeared in a bowl game. For a solution, the program has only to look to our neighbors in Dallas for

an example of how to make it back to the top. In 2008, Southern Methodist University hired June Jones away from the University of Hawaii in hopes of bringing its football program back to its former glory. When Jones took the reins, he took over a team in the t h roes of a 25-yea r bowl drought. SMU went 1-11 in Jones’ first year. But in Jones’ second season, the Mustangs went 7-5 in the regular season and earned a trip to the 2009 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl (which they won 45-10), removing the 25-year-old monkey from the program’s back. Now, in the third year of the Jones era, SMU sits at 7-5 and has earned a trip to this weekend’s Conference USA title game. Three years. That’s all it took for SMU to go from rags to riches.

ARMA Denton respectfully disagrees with the article in t he NT Daily’s Wednesday issue. There are three main st atement s made by t he writer that we feel need clarification. First, the sentence “Instead of spending t heir Sundays hitting the books, some UNT students dedicate their time to hitting each other with wooden swords.” This statement alludes to the idea that ARMA is a student-based organization. Our members come from a wide variety of professiona l backg rounds, including students, police of f icers, professors, active military, etc. As for the idea that we don’t “hit the books,” readers need to understand that our organization is not simply based on spa r r i ng w it h wooden

swords, but derives its martial techniques from active and intensive academic studies. If a ny t hing, book s for m t he keystone of our knowledge of 14th, 15th and 16th century f ig ht i ng met hod s. T hese sources, called fechtbücher (German: fight book), were written by fencing masters of the time period as training manuals for knights and menat-arms who wished to enhance their abilities in warfare. Secondly, the statement that “During practice, members spar using wooden swords called wasters and attack one another with the intent to do bodily harm to their partner.” As part of an internationally respected organization dedicated to the academic study of Renaissance martial arts, we practice our art with a sincere

How did they do it? In brief, Jones installed his system and molded his team around it. He recruited high school players who fit the system and got creative (e.g. Margus Hunt, a 6-foot-8 Estonian shot and discus thrower turned defensive lineman). To right the ship, McCarney must carry out a similar plan at UNT. SMU had factors working in its favor to turn t hings around, such as the donor money to afford hiring Jones. But UNT has advantages that SMU doesn’t. For instance, SMU is a private school with h ig her t u it ion cost s a nd different academic requirements than UNT, making it more difficult to lure highlevel recruits. W it h a st ate-of-t he-a r t stadium opening next season, UNT has a gigantic chip (literally) to use in recruiting high

school players. Wit hout a doubt this team has struggled, but it isn’t as bad as its record indicates. Wit h t he right system and players, the Mean Green has a chance to imitate SMU’s turnaround – as long as the injury curse doesn’t strike again…
