Some of North Texas’ players set out on a dead sprint. Others bounded. A few skipped as the doors rolled up at the Lovelace & McNatt Families Practice Facility earlier this fall. The Mean Green toiled in the heat for weeks on the field adjacent to the venue as construction wrapped up during preseason practice.
