  1. I suspect everyone's eyes were glued to MSNBC this afternoon and know about this anyway... MSNBC chose to broadcast their story about the football season cancellations from none other than good old North Texas. IIRC, the correspondent was named David Chesky who interviewed Mike Scurrico (sp) who spoke to the financial damage the cancelation would bring. Apogee was shown in the background. It is always nice to see an unexpected story from our alma mater!

  3. I already did that with conference basketball tournament tickets that I bought and was never able to use. The financial dire straits up there aren’t due to people like me who religiously buy tickets, they’re due to the thousands of alumni they’ve never managed to convince to give ANYTHING

  4. I’m sure the athletic department will (understandably) wait until the last minute to begin that process. No judgement whatsoever but I encourage those who are able to either leave your money in or at least make some form of a donation to do so. Things are going to be reeeeal tough up there. Were this a different era of Mean Green athletics I’d probably ask for my money back but Wren and co have worked so hard and we have come so far.

  9. Could there be a silver lining in this for UNT? With Big 10 , MWC, and MAC out with PAC 12 probably to follow. there seems to be be a void of "fall ball" games to be televised. Does this open any doors for CUSA,AAC, and SBC to fill that void? I am clueless on this issue but brought it up assuming greater minds might share their knowledge.

  12. “If any portion of the 2020 home football schedule is impacted by COVID-19 resulting in games being cancelled or the number of in-person fans being limited, Mean Green season ticket holders will have the option to apply payments to future UNT Athletics events, convert payments to donations to the Mean Green Scholarship Fund or receive a refund.” https://meangreensports.com/news/2020/5/26/tickets-mean-green-football-season-ticket-assurance-program-announced.aspx

  13. 2 hour drive from Las Vegas in one of the most scenic regions of the USA. Close to Zion national park, Bryce Canyon another hour north. Spectacular outdoors options. nice little stadium at the foothills of red rock mountains. drove through their on many a hiking trips to mountains when living in LV. GMG

  16. So no one thinks he got hosed by the NFL? I think this sucks... Yeah, its cool he can work with his old coach and work with Drummond... but does it mean he is done chasing the dream? Or does this give him the flexibility to still try out for teams and get a paycheck? I think he for sure got screwed due to the pandemic. Teams cant take too many risks right now. Someone would need to take a risk on Mason.

  18. Correct me if I'm wrong (like that will be a problem), but I believe the biggest cost of renewing season tickets is the "donation" to the Mean Green Scholarship Fund. When I sent my season ticket money in, the required "donation" was greater than the cost of the tickets. Plus, I was encouraged, almost chided to increase my donation in order to get a better parking spot in the black lot. I signed up for the "plus 10 (%)" option and I still didn't qualify for the black lot. That means there were the equivalent number of donors in the green, white, and black lots that donated more than me. I

  22. University dorms will be far from empty this school year. Residence halls at Texas Woman’s University and the University of North Texas will likely see a dip in occupancy compared to previous years, but thousands of students are still on track to move to town in the coming week. Monica Mendez-Grant, vice president for student life, estimated dorms would be 75% full this year compared to roughly 93% at the start of the 2019-20 school year. “We have actually recalibrated the occupancy and so we have a larger number of single rooms, and there cannot be more than two

  23. It seems like the pandemonium is because this one thing is being tracked like nothing ever before. It won’t be long before they find that the incidences of other things, and their possible connections to other other things, make life just too risky to live. It has been all along.

  25. Spriing in the MWC, they better be a running team because those spring winds can be tough in many of MWC schools locations. Not unusual to see 50 plus MPH wins in Albuquerque, Las Vegas, Nevada and it can be tough in Wyoming, CSU in the winter (spring).

  27. I think you can either opt for a refund or credit the money to next years tickets. I don’t think it’s a refund or else it’s just a donation thing.

  28. I don't think there is anyway that fall football occurs. If it does, those teams that play would lose a year of eligibility for players; while those that sitout will gain a year of training for their players. I am not sure if I were a senior football player, I would want to play my last year in empty stadiums.

  31. Expect the PAC 12 to cancel next. So sad for all the players, coaches, fans and the universities. But, can you really blame them with all the uncertainty surrounding this virus and the uncertainty surrounding potential liability issues? Lots and lots of things to be sorted out now. And, call me skeptical, but all these schools saying they will try to play in the spring....not so much I think. Hope so, but the challenges would be massive in my opinion. Just my opinion. Bummer all the way around!

  33. Are the MAC and Mountain West seeing any of this last minute transferring happen? Certainly they have players worthy enough to play at some other lowly school like SMU.

  34. Unless NCAA steps in with an emergency rule players at schools not playing get a free transfer as long as they don’t miss last day to enroll at the new school

  35. Disclosure: I know nothing about the transfer rules. Is the portal still open? Could a player transfer from a school not playing to one that is this late in the game? I realize there will be several more dominoes to fall, so probably wouldn't be worth it if it was allowed, but it'd be fun to see this play out like free agency in pro sports, but only because it might benefit G5 schools.

  38. Makes sense. PAC-12 isn’t playing non-conference. Big Sky pulled the plug. That left BYU, UTEP, and NMSU as only possible FBS opponents in the region. Newcomer Dixie State is the only FCS. Lot of flying in the MWC including all games involving Hawaii. Outside the front range of Wyoming, CSU, AFA not many bus trips

  41. I think that the reasons here are not as cut and dry as many want to think they are, flatten the curve was great but now what is the goal? It is undefined as far as I can tell and zero virus is never going to happen so then what? Do we trust the overall reporting on this pandemic? Are the numbers really where they say they are? How does this virus impact young people? How does that impact compare to other public heath issues such as flu, drunk driving or STD's? How do those numbers break down on an age basis? Who is really at risk and what is that danger when compared to other ri

  44. If the fire dept fails to attend to the fire, says its a hoax, ignores the meteorologists about how it may spread, is ok with homeowners not taking any preventative measures, then are they not also partly to blame for its spread? No doubt China could have done a lot more here and they must be held accountable for hiding what they knew. But when other fire depts around the world aren't having as large of a problem as we are, maybe we need a new chief?
