    What would the SEC do without CUSA.
  2. Tragic Accident at FIU

    On March 10, the main span of the FIU-Sweetwater UniversityCity Bridge was lifted from its temporary supports, rotated 90 degrees across an eight-lane thoroughfare, and lowered into its permanent position. “FIU is about building bridges and student safety. This project accomplishes our mission beautifully,” said FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg. “We are filled with pride and satisfaction at seeing this engineering feat come to life and connect our campus to the surrounding community where thousands of our students live.” The 174-foot, 950-ton section of the bridge was built adjacent to Southwest Eight Street using Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) methods, which are being advanced at FIU’s Accelerated Bridge Construction University Transportation Center (ABC-UTC). This method of construction reduces potential risks to workers, commuters and pedestrians and minimizes traffic interruptions. The main span of the FIU-Sweetwater UniversityCity Bridge was installed in a few hours with limited disruption to traffic over this weekend. “This project is an outstanding example of the ABC method,” said chair of FIU’s Civil & Environmental Engineering Department and director of FIU’s ABC-UTC Atorod Azizinamini, who is one of the world’s leading experts on Accelerated Bridge Construction. “Building the major element of the bridge – its main span superstructure – outside of the traveled way and away from busy Eighth Street is a milestone.” The FIU-Sweetwater UniversityCity Bridge is the largest pedestrian bridge moved via Self-Propelled Modular Transportation in U.S. history. It is also the first in the world to be constructed entirely of self-cleaning concrete. When exposed to sunlight, the titanium dioxide in the concrete captures pollutants and turns it bright white, reducing maintenance costs. That bridge collapsed today (TH) killing 6-8 and trapping several cars underneath. Thoughts to our conference mate.

  4. Teams that host the semifinals give their ticket revenue to the CBI. The team that hosts the final gives their ticket revenue from each game that it hosts to the CBI. UNT could host games later in the tournament, depending on the way things turn out. So then what does this mean ? And why give a down vote for a guy asking a question ?
  5. To be clear, NT must win 2 games in South Dakota in order to host a final game in Denton. Is that correct ?
  6. Best Ways to Impact/Stay Involved as Alumni

    But if you want to help, then help. Don't wait to be asked. Call the ticket office and but season tickets. Any section season tickets. Donate the minimum to the MGSF. And do it cheerfully. As your situation improves, but better seats. But again, DONT WAIT TO BE ASKED. Too many here get their feelings hurt if they don't get a phone call or a letter. If you buy season tickets and make a donation to the MGSF, the Athletic Department will know where to find you. And then, ATTEND THE GAMES. Be part of the Mean Green Nation. Win or lose, you'll have a great time. GO MEAN GREEN
  7. Gonzaga and Brigham Young considering MWC?

    For all the tea in China I couldn’t tell you where Gonzaga is located.
  8. Wilson's Combine

    That can't help his chances.
  9. Tony Mitchell Update

    How much money is a 5th year pro in this league making ?
  10. He may not win the Heisman but I bet we win the West. GO MEAN GREEN
  11. Where is the combine held ? Is there only one or multiple sites ? GO MEAN GREEN
  12. ODU looking to bail C-USA?

    Legit question here. How are attendance numbers calculated ? If a person buys a ticket and sits in a seat they should be counted. If there is a seat that has been paid for but not sat in, how should that be figured in ? Both were bought and paid for, right ? The "paid for/not sat in" seat is unavailable for anyone else to sit in. For all we know the ticket holder got tied up in traffic and will get to the game ASAP. Maybe late in the game. What about the person that comes to the game, gets his ticket scanned and leaves ? And what about people like me that come to the basketball games with 2 tickets in hand but no second person ? I'm only one person but I want to count as two. GO MEAN GREEN

    I just spoke with Wren at the B.B. game. He said results would be announced at 5:00p Friday. He said he felt confident it would pass. GO MEAN GREEN
