  1. You are receiving down votes because you are the guy who constantly harps on "not settling" and "#oldenton", and is tired of "excuses" for everything that isn't first class and P5 worthy. However, as soon as someone asks you to help pay for those things, suddenly you have plenty of excuses of why it is not fair to ask you to pay for it. That is the most #olddenton thing ever. It is the dictionary definition of #OldDenton.

  3. Hos, specifically is this a "Money Grab"? You, yourself have called for an upgrade to everything....that cost money. I guess you could say that everything is a "Money Grab" I charge exactly what the market will bare for my products....no a penny more or less. How is this any different? The AD is raising money to provide the product we all want and have demanded for years.....there is no there there

  4. I’ll tell you why it affects me. My license plate holder is no longer valid. I have to throw away two sweatshirts, and everything mandarino worked so hard to build from the ground up just got axed in one swift obviously knee jerk decision. Plus, it’s one of the few clubs I actually belong to. What now? Rotary? Kiwanananasasas? Junior league? I have no direction.

  5. Lot of that has been going on. The "per seat" donation is really the only fair way to do this thing and I mentioned that when Apogee was first opened. Told them they were just delaying the inevitable and "kicking the can" down the road for future complaints. Also told them, why should a guy buying one ticket have to pay the same as the guy buying eight? Not very fair in my opinion and I mentioned that...to no avail. Plus, the "other" schools I am aware of that have this sort of thing have been doing the "per seat" thing from the beginning. Now, that is not to say that everyone "sharin

  6. If it doesn't affect you, then why do you care one way or another? All I know is, the real fans of the program demanded changes to the AD and a commitment to excellence. Well, here it is. If we want to be serious players in the world of Div 1 athletics, then we have to pay up. All of us, plain and simple. Students, alumni, administration, everyone. If you're not on board, then and go and be happy doing something else. Or, put your big boy pants on and get over it.

  8. When they made the contribution minimum change from per donor to per seat in the club last year, it was to stifle certain abuses that were taking place. I could lay down one donation, buy two seats, but effectively have rights to four seats every game at cut-rate prices. People (rightfully) didn't think that was fair, so they changed the policy. All of this, in my eyes, is disposable income expenditures on a recreational pursuit. Some day, I may feel that the expense outweighs the benefit of recreation enjoyed. If that day arrives, I will either downgrade my seating situation or I w

  10. Wish we had named it the North Texas Athletics Foundation, (or, Mean Green Athletics Foundation) like most other universities have. I assume a "Athletic Foundation" would serve the same purpose as a Mean Green Scholarship Fund.

  11. Huge for UNT. Hope that knee is healed up and they have put some weight on him as well. If he can come in at 210-215 that is huge, and if he can run in the 4.5s that’s a major boost in terms of getting coaches to rewatch his tape. One thing he has that most College RBs don’t have is solid/great pass blocking. Hope he can have a huge day.

  19. When you look at places like Houston, our season tickets have been a steal. I think the new system will keep people from pooling their money to game the system on the MGC donation. If I need two tickets and my buddy needs two tickets, we save $500 by buying under one name. This new way will eliminate that while making it easier on single and double ticket purchasers as far as donation requirements.

  20. But this is poo poo. I’ve follwed NT recruiting closely for a long time and it just seems like we can’t ever capitalize on a good season. I know that it’s usually the following years class that sees the uptick. But damn, when the hell are we going to start landing a class full of studs. A class full of recruits who have P5 offers. I don’t care if those offers are from Kansas, Washington State, Vanderbilt, and whoever else. We aren’t regularly beating out the La Techs of the world at this point. I know we have some decent kids onboard with this class, but I want to see an entire class of it. T

  21. Talked with MGSF (still want to type MGC) rep today. It's going to cost me. I had 8 tickets. 4 for me, 2 each for friends. We did this to cut the donation requirement. I suspect we are the type of folks this was meant to eliminate :) I'm not excited to pay more. But I am excited about where this program is headed. The website was very informative. My deal is this, if they are charging higher than our competitors, I'd be livid. But we are still below the CUSA average. And I expect us to win, so I understand paying bottom dollar prices doesn't mesh with my expectations. I think overal

  24. We're doing better. We're not great, but things have slightly improved. I don't expect to be an overnight top recruiting class in CUSA. But I do expect steady improvements year to year, which I am seeing. Now, we do need to close strong with these last handful of scholarships. We can't afford to whiff on the rest of our slots and watch UTSA, LaTech and SMU closeout strong.

  25. No, it wasn't $1,000 or $2,000 - they just went on priority points. So now I have been downgraded on my parking. I would be willing to spend more I think, but the jump to $3000 is severe.

  26. It's not forced on you. Sit somewhere else. It would be forced on students unless they wanted to transfer to another school. I am for the student fee being raised, and though I am not happy about it, I understand why the program needs to raise money to compete.

  27. So asking a customer who is interested in the product and in convinced the product should be high grade is a money grab. But forcing the students, many of who aren't interested in athletics at all, to pay a higher fee is not a money grab?

I do understand what you are getting at though. I tell you What, you buy/sell a house through me and I will use all that commission money to purchase a season ticket for her until the money runs out, HAHA

  43. They are raising the prices on the most desirable seats in the house to a level commensurate with the going rate of the G5. Obviously, if you cannot or will not pay for the increase either someone else will or they will go unsold in which case the department will reduce the price to a level at which someone will pay. They are betting that the team that just went to the championship game will be good and the seats will be desirable. I think they are right. The good news is that there are lots of empty seats to choose from if you want to make the game but do not want pay the number the
