First, I have been to a lot of so called great football stadiums and I can honestly state that the stadium I watch a game is a minor consideration in my enjoyment of the game. Now where I set in the stadium may be, paying premium prices to be in the OU or UT end zone in seats that wouldn't accommodate the average pygmy does have a negative effect. NT is not going to be playing in a big six conference any time soon, and most that think NT's program is a joke will not change their opinions. Because those opinions are derived from a type of herd mentality that believes winning and hype are superior to loyalty or allegiance to their University.
Let me tell you what has a negative effect.
Tuesday night towards the end of practice at Fouts, around 9:30 p.m., my 5 year old F4 tells me she's gotta go #2, and there's not a single restroom open anywhere in the stadium that I could find, and I checked every damn restroom door there was. Luckily, I've worked inside Fouts in the past and knew by chance where I could get into the visitors' locker room. Holy....Freakin...$hithole, BATMAN! Has anyone here on this board been under the Eastside stands in the visitors locker room lately? From the bottom of my heart, I'm so embarrassed to think we put any visiting team and their coaches in that place? What they all must think of and say about North Texas???? And to think, of all the teams,OF...ALL...THE...TEAMS...TO...DO...THIS...TO...
we put our future hero's of this great nation, the players from the Naval Academy there, and will do the same this year when Army comes to visit? I..I...(sigh)...I'm telling you, it makes me sick. How we have ever gotten any named team(Baylor, TCU, SMU, Houston, Oregon St, Navy, Army) to agree to come and play us there is simply amazing, especially getting them to return, is even more amazing.
