City’s position paper on “vested rights” — During the council's work session last week, several members referred to a Vested Rights Position and White Paper. I wrote the story as best I could, not knowing the details of what was in the paper. The paper was not included in the agenda back-up online. I finally received a copy late Friday.

UNT doubleheader running blog — UNT hasn't played many doubleheaders since joining Conference USA. Today marks one of those rare occasions. The UNT women will face Eastern Illinois in the "somebody has to win game" of the day before we get a better idea if the UNT men are the real deal when they face a really good Iona team.

Football: Dragons light up Guyer — ARLINGTON - Guyer picked the wrong time to play one of its most sloppy games of the year on Saturday night, as the Wildcats' first-half mistakes and Southlake Carroll quarterback Ryan Agnew were too much for Guyer to overcome as the Wildcats fell 58-42 in a late Class 6A Division II playoff game at AT&T Stadium.

Early mistakes and the @SLCAthletics offense were too much for @DentonGuyerFB to overcome late Sat. night #txhsfb

Football: Wildcats look to keep edge on Carroll — There are not many teams in Texas that can claim an all-time series advantage over Southlake Carroll. Yet, when Guyer and Carroll take the field at Arlington's AT&T Stadium at 8 tonight, the Dragons will be in that unfamiliar position.

Friday night notes (UNT falls in women’s hoops, et cetera) — It's been a tough go early this season for the UNT women's basketball team, which got off to a great start before sputtering and eventually flaming out in a 56-46 loss to UMass. Briesha Wynn led UNT with 11 points and Eboniey Jeter added 10.

MGB Friday notes: Tough night for the UNT women's basketball team, Iona beats Wake, UNT v-ball advances, et cetera:

What you need to know: Southlake Carroll — If not for that matchup Saturday morning between DeSoto and Allen, the game featuring a 10-win Guyer team and an unbeaten Southlake Carroll team on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium might be considered the biggest game in the Metroplex this weekend.
