North Texas to unretire Mean Joe Greene's No. 75 jersey for one game

For the first time in 50 years, No. 75 will be back on the field for the North Texas Mean Green.

The school published a video playing off legendary defensive lineman "Mean" Joe Greene's Coca-Cola commercial to make the announcement. It shows UNT junior defensive end LaDarius Hamilton inspecting a throwback North Texas helmet at his locker before Greene arrives and tosses him a jersey with his retired number.

He's the ud83dudc10 and the only Mean Green Football player to wear the No. 75 in the last 50 years. Until this week.
