  1. DRC breaking news -- UNT fee vote passes

    My reverse jinx magic worked again. You are all welcome.
  2. DRC: Results of UNT fee vote delayed again

    Give me a break. The university stepping in to control the SGA would be worse. This is a student issue since it is going through the SGA. You want to argue that the administration should go about funding of athletics differently, fine, but this back and forth going on with this vote is purely in the court of the SGA.
  3. DRC: Results of UNT fee vote delayed again

    What did you expect? Reminds me of our national reaction to Presidential elections that don’t go our way. And I’m not just talking about the most recent. Now if something really amiss went on, absolutely challenge the results. If this is just a stall tactic then the SGA should throw out the complaint and move forward.
  4. Place your bets

    I demand answers NOW!
  5. Place your bets

    No. Admittedly, that's a bit of an involuntary reaction to protect my balls.
  6. This sounds like the AD is mass marketing the vote by emailing everyone. That's what RV tried and failed. You are exactly right....keep it relatively low key and it will pass. That's not what is happening here, it sounds.
  7. Um...I've been paying $40 per seat to add the plastic chair backs to my season ticket seats. It's a way for the AD to pull more $$ for the seats. So....if you want to add chair backs to all seats in a section, you're going to have to raise ticket prices to cover the lost opportunity cost of those "extras"....
  8. I want to be optimistic, but it's been a couple years since the ole UNT crotch kick got me really good. This feels like a prime opportunity for UNT to make up for lost time on that front. The University is pulling one direction and has been for the past few years. Why on earth would the BOR, pres/chancellor risk undoing all the momentum that they've been building and not just find a way to add an erroneous fee somewhere else that covers this? I'm not trying to be a dill here and force more fees on students. I'm going to be paying for college for 2 kids starting in 4 years, so I fully understand the stakes. What I don't understand is how this is even debatable. It has been proven over and over and over....with athletic success comes huge donation increases across the school as a whole. It's so often said that athletics is a window into the school. I think that really short changes the facts. It's not a window so much as it is a way to improve the QUALITY of the education for current and future students---and that ultimately improves the perceived value of the degree for all degree holding alumni.
  9. Really, it's just a defense heavy class. ....and thank goodness! Hopefully we've got a lot of keepers here and we can go for more balance next year, across the board.
  10. Hope Y'all are ready to open up your wallets!

    Based on what? Last year’s student section attendance was terrible. It was markedly worse than 2016. What caused that? We already don’t have great attendance on the alumni side and this increase has the potential to make it worse.

    No issue with them raising the required donation. As Cerebus already stated, we need to raise more money. I'm curious, though, if CUSA as a whole has raised ticket prices? I thought CUSA games used to have a floor of $35/seat. At $165/seat for 6 games we're not getting much of a discount---or incentive---for committing to the entire season. I've had 4 seats in 208 (and the equivalent in Fouts) since 2001. At no point has that section been even remotely close to half full--which leads to folks from around the stadium moving in from cheaper seats once the game starts. Not sure how doubling the minimum donation for already empty seats is going to do anything but push more people to buy cheaper seats and just move over during the 1st quarter? Of my original group from 2001, nearly all of them are cheap b@stards and don't believe they should have to pay anything for our games. When they instituted the $250 donation nearly all of them dropped out altogether and just buy $10 walk up tickets. Of course they still sit in our section every game on those $10 wing zone seats. Also---are these seats resold via ticketmaster or the AD on an individual game by game basis?
  12. At least they include a pic of their stadium that is representative of their actual gameday attendance.
  13. Screw recruiting players currently on FBS rosters---the big problem this would create is when a coach gets poached/fired. They'd either take the very best players with them, or some of those guys would immediately bail. Think Littrell wouldn't like to take Fine with him literally ANYWHERE he would go? There are only a handful of schools who have a QB on hand that would be ready to immediately transition and be as productive as Fine has been, or could be. Or heck, if the relationship between Harrell and Fine is really strong, maybe the OC leaving would trigger the same thing. For the fired part of the equation look no further than what happened in Waco when Briles was fired. That was for extreme circumstances, but they lost nearly an entire recruiting class when the NCAA opened up the ability to transfer to those kids that had just signed. Imagine what would have happened with the entire roster if given the opportunity. Now you're going to make this a common fear anytime you need to move on from a particular coach?
