    Which game would you rather win?

    Now that we are in first place in the West and control our own destiny, I am curious if anyone that voted they would rather beat SMU than UTSA has changed their opinion. Had we beaten SMU and lost to UTSA, we would be a half game back of UTSA right now, tied with UAB and USM for 2nd with a tiebraker against both. GO MEAN GREEN

    Beating SMU doesn't help us get to the CUSA championship game. Beating UTSA does.
  3. Many of those spots are reserved for RVers with season tickets. Be sure you call the ticket office early in the season and get an RV specific parking pass for the game you want. I usually come up Friday night and have only needed one pass, but I do not move my truck after I am set up.

    Questions for you RVers

    Per Mike Smith, RV parking on the west side of the Red/Blue lot is no longer permitted and RV's parked there will be towed at the owner's expense.

    Questions for you RVers

    The lot opens at 5 PM on Friday. All RV parking is on the far east side of the Red/Blue lots. We typically stay Friday and Saturday night.

    Great football memories

    So many to choose from. I'd start with the entire 2001 season. I attended every game that year with a good friend of mine. Started 0-5 with road trips to Norman, Tampa & Monroe My first trip to Norman and first time to see Big XII football in person. My friend had a connection that helped us get a beach front condo in Tampa the week of the USF game. Turns out the week before we stayed there President Bush had stayed in the same condo. Resort staff was still moving furnishings back in that secret service had removed. Took the bus trip from hell to Monroe with many on this board. Watched Necessary Roughness on the way out, got super pumped then lost to a team I was sure we would beat. Bus ride home was a beating. To this day I refuse to watch Necessary Roughness on game days. At this point in the season I see no reason for hope. Next week we shock the Conference favorites, MTSU, in Denton. Late in the game with NT leading 21-0, GreenJoe, who has seats close to mine, yells "When does the North Texas game start!" I am shocked, but still don't expect much from the rest of the season. Following a victory over Arkansas State, we travel to Las Cruces. We had a good crowd. Security kept moving our fans out of the good seats (even though they were empty) and into the corner of the end zone. IIRC, Emmitt actually walks to the ticket booth and buys tickets in the section we were removed from and security still makes him move. NMSU students start chanting "F$%k North Texas" from the student section. We win in a miracle comeback. The legend of "The Miracle in the Desert" is born. NMSU turns off the stadium lights as soon as the game clock ticks to 0.00. We tailgate in the parking lot for hours after the game. I start to think the impossible may happen. We beat the Cajuns then travel to Idaho. Go to a sports bar in Moscow the night before the game. On the menu I find a "Mean Green Burger". No joke. Not many NT fans in the stands. Brad Olson is there in their version of a suite and promises to throw some pretzels to me in the cheap seats. He doesn't. My friend and I are interviewed by the NT Daily and get on the front page the following week. We win big and secure a berth in the New Orleans Bowl. We travel to Troy to play the Trojans and secure a .500 record. We lose. Damn. MTSU fans begin an epic meltdown over being snubbed for a 5-7 North Texas. New Orleans baby! So much fun on Bourbon Street. Game is a disappointment, but I had a fantastic time.

    handicap shuttle from parking lot

    According to meangreensports.com... EAGLE AMBASSADOR SHUTTLE - A shuttle runs between Apogee Stadium Gate 2, Gate 3, the Victory Hall entrance and the Victory Hall bus stop on home game days. The shuttle begins two hours prior to kickoff and runs approximately every 15 minutes until the end of the first quarter, then resumes at the beginning of the fourth quarter until approximately 30 minutes after the end of the game. The locations are highlighted in purple in the map in this link: http://www.meangreenmap.com/apogeeparking.html

    What are your plans for the SMU game?

    ​Why would you buy tickets from the SMU ticket office?

    Brilliant!

    Yes, as long as you renew by the deadline, which I believe is June 30th.

    What Do You Expect From This Program

    I expect the following two things from the Athletic department: 1. Create an environment where student athletes can achieve their academic goals 2. Act in a manner that reflects the highest level of integrity in all endeavors I expect the same from the University as a whole.
