The Quad Countdown: No. 116 North Texas
The Quad Link 116 North Texas (http://thequad.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/08/no-116-north-texas/)

Location: Denton, Tex.

Nickname: Mean Green. Last year’s preview ignited some controversy over the true origin of this nickname. I offered the theory that perhaps the name originated from Mean Joe Greene, the dominating former North Texas defensive tackle. Of course, wouldn’t the team then be called the Mean Greene? Any U.N.T. fans care to educate us with the right answer?

Last year’s ranking: No. 102.
