  1. Forcing MGSF donors to pay $120 more for blue parking by pressuring them with the “you should be doing this to support our student-athletes” is bad business and how you drive people away. I don’t make enough to freely donate thousands of dollars that I can write off. To me it’s more of an entertainment expense. So if I notice the AD is trying to drastically overcharge me for parking, I’m going to take the cheaper option (buying week to week).

  2. Love that 3 CUSA championships are being contested in Denton and one only 30 min away. Testament to our facilities and to Wren and the team.

  5. Agreed. Grew up in Midland and the difference is staggering. I'd take 100 with zero humidity in West Texas over 85 and 60% humidity any day of the week

  6. Depends on where in Boston, but about 60 miles +/-. Traffic on the Mass Pike will determine how long it takes. I live in Connecticut, about 80 miles from UMass. Looking forward to attending.

  9. Enough time has passed that I can enjoy Dickey's achievements at UNT despite the stunt he pulled on the way out the door. I had some great times during that 26-game conference winning streak. Seven of his players went on to be in the NFL and one who didn't -- Booger Kennedy -- is one of our all-time greats. There's also Andrew Smith, who quarterbacked the team to a bowl win over Cincinnati. I wonder what he could've gone on to do both in his final two seasons and the rest of his life.

  10. How does one show support for the program as a whole, but want to show disapproval of a head football coach at the same time? Throwing money at the MGSF won't get anyone's attention. Stopping a donation or season ticket might. It's the only vote a fan really has that is meaningful.

  11. It was time for a change after last season, especially after a home bowl loss to Miami-O-my. Pitiful. Dragging it out just hurts our start in the AAC.

  14. The salaries paid to the coaches and athletic dept staff would suggest the money is no where near drying up... I'm so glad we are finally paying closer to big boy salaries. We have great facilities. Never had support like we do now (despite how bad our football program is compared to so many others with less) For someone not to expect a bare minimum of service (answer the phone for crying out loud) is foolish in my opinion. And I don't say this as a personal complaint...I've actually never had big problems with the ticket office (the original point of this thread) but I do get a little defensive when the finger gets pointed back at me as long time fan/donor that I should have zero expectations and just write checks and shut up. That's not the way it works....the current administration has WAAAAAAY more to work with than the last one. (please don't read this as defending RV, I'm not). the "big boy" term works both ways. you want big boy donors, don't do little boy things when it comes time to execute. And man....it looks like I'm dogging the AD, I'm not. Wren is doing a great job, but I can't accept donors being blamed for a lack of donations. People donate for several reasons....one of which yes, is blind, unconditional love for their University. Good for you. I burned out on that one a long time ago...

  15. I get what you're saying....but my point was along the lines of: "who is responsible for ensuring an environment that is conducive to MORE giving" I'm gonna say it's the highest paid AD in the conference, the guy that just got the big fat raise and extension and makes a whole lot of money. That's LITERALLY his job. It's not mine. I'm not here to give him money with no strings attached. The strings are do what you're being paid to do. It's not my responsibility as an alumnus....it's the AD's responsibility. Guess what, I was giving $ before he got here and I'll be giving money after he leaves. Why are you holding ME responsible for fund raising. The guy making over $600K a year, headed toward $800K is where you should be looking. I'm not opposed to paying him a bunch of money. Hell, I hope we can double that in the coming years. But do your damn job and own it. Don't tweet pictures of an empty stadium and lecture fans that we'll never be a big time program if YOU don't show up. Maybe make it where it's not such a chore to buy tickets...there's a start.

  16. Set the Bar Low (6 wins) then deliver more than promised... Yea...that might work for last year's team but this year's team has too many unknown pieces that are all over the board. Seth has got to feel some pressure when many of our team sports are doing so well. Six ain't gonna cut it IMO.

  21. Billy Crews is greatness. I use to live right next to it in that neighborhood behind the roundabout before moving back to the metroplex. I use to hit L&Js for Gordita day all the time. So good. I may need to go to the game just for the food alone. Although last time I bought the ticket, flew out, got a hotel then NT lays an egg and gets destroyed. Terrible trip.

  23. This thread has veered off a bit from the op. It's odd that some seem to have consistently bad experiences while others have consistently good experiences with the ticket office. This has the smell of an IT problem that simply has not been resolved....accounts locked or accounts with missing or bad data. Most of this is all automated. There's the customer service aspect (returning calls, following-up with issues, etc.) that apparently needs attention, but fix some of the underlying technology problems (whatever they are) and the bad experience customers are being subjected to would not need to be repaired in the first place.

  25. North Texas Mean Green Preview 2022 Is Seth Littrell ready to take North Texas into a new era? He’s a young head coach who was a hot name in the overall mix after two straight nine win seasons in 2017 and 2018, but three straight losing seasons and a 14-21 record since then changed the perception. His teams can crank up the offense, improved a bit on defense, and at least got to bowl games in five of his six seasons at the helm. Granted, the Mean Green lost all five of the bowls, but he got there. Now North Texas is gearing up for live in the American Athletic Conference next year. The league might be a shadow of its former self with the stars taking off, but it’s still a big step for the program and the university. This year, with a few schools taking off early for the Sun Belt, and with a loaded offense coming back, this is when the team and program should rise back up again. The tough schedule might have something to say about that, but in Year Seven, this is when North Texas needs to be the team everyone else fears. And it will be because of the … read more: https://collegefootballnews.com/2022/06/north-texas-mean-green-preview-2022-season-prediction-breakdown-key-games-players/amp

  38. Perhaps but as great as Hall and Co. were, Attaway/Bridges was pretty bad and that is on the coach just as it is with us right now and our less than desirable quarterback play.

  42. #1- SL has NEVER, not once, proven he can win when it truly matters #2- Despite having what seems like 30 different QB's on this roster over the last half decade, we still don't have one that makes you say "yeah, that's the guy!" during games #3- A WR room that has been full of "potential" for a while now still hasn't come close to matching what we had with Darden, Bussey, and Guyton #4- While we bring in transfers from FCS and D2 schools, our opponents bring in transfers from the P5 ranks. You can say until you're blue in the face that people were "productive" at lower levels, but talent is talent is talent (if you don't believe this, watch film of games from years past). #5- I can't quite put my finger on the exact reason, but this feels like the least excited I've been for a season in a long time. Like, less excited than the last few years of Dickey or McCarney eras.
