Standout running back Lance Dunbar and new coach Dan McCarney anchor North Texas' poster schedule. Dunbar has 2,931 rushing yards the past two seasons and McCarney knows how to win with the odds stacked against him, having coached for 12 seasons at Iowa State and leaving as the program's all-time leader in wins (56) and bowl appearances (five).
Todd Dodge returns for his fourth season as coach, but the Mean Green will have to show serious improvement if he is to return for a fifth. North Texas is 5-31 under Dodge, and he must find a new starter at quarterback after his son, Riley, suffered an injury to his right passing arm in the 2009 finale against Arkansas State. Riley never recovered enough arm strength to remain a viable passer and was moved to receiver during spring drills. This is the final season the team will play in Fouts Field. A new on-campus facility that will seat between 30,000 and 35,000 will be ready for 2011. Poster designed by Old Hat Creative. Thanks to Jamie!
As a run up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted. Last year, the site displayed a record 69 posters.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. Until then, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
