  1. A great day for The University of North Texas indeed and many thanks must be given to the UNT BOR, Dr. Smatresk, Wren Baker, Jared Mosely, our many generous donors, corporate sponsors and many countless others for helping to make this happen. Many schools aspire to be great but very few have the resources and commitment to make it happen. North Texas and the 6 new AAC additions all have this and in the end result that is why they were chosen over the others. We've worked hard over the years to be in this select group and we should be extremely proud of this accomplishment. We also have added a first class commissioner in Mike Aresco that is a proven winner and visionary leader. Simply put, he is a winner! The opportunity is fantastic and it will be very exciting to be a part of this conference! GO MEAN GREEN!
  2. They may at some point in the future but not now. The Big 12 would have already added them. Not saying it won't happen but it could take awhile if ever.
  3. Well folks this season has sort of been a bust and we still have a long way to get to the end. To help pass the time, we decided to set up and try a new GMG Blackjack game which is based off of a points system (not reputation) which you build just for participating on the site. The game includes a chat feature so you can talk to other players while you are playing. The more posts you make and the more replies the more points you will receive to play the game. There is a low stakes table (Darrell Dickey) and a high stakes table (State Club). You also receive some points on a daily basis just for being yourself so everyone should be able to play. Nothing fancy but something fun to do and we can chat about the AAC etc as we play. We are still in the testing phase, but I wanted to let you know it was there and if you would like to check it out here is the link: https://www.gomeangreen.com/forums/blackjack/ GMG ALSO DISCLAIMER = this is not in anyway a real money blackjack game it is just for fun. The points are based on board participation. If you want more points, just post or reply more often. You will also get points every day just for being a member. GMG
  4. @Cerebusand I were talking about this and typically this would be spelled out in the by laws. There are typically a minimum number of teams that have to remain in the conference for it to remain viable, so like with the Big 12 we think it was 6 but not sure again what that number is or if it is even spelled out with C-USA.
  5. @Cerebus and I spoke about this topic and he rightly indicated it is very unlikely that CUSA will disband because they have 18 million in exit fees owed to them (6 x 3 mil) from the schools that are leaving. They also get to keep the NCAA tourney credits from our win against Purdue as well as their autobid.
  6. @Arkstfanand I were talking about this and he had a good idea adding NMSU as a travel partner. UTEP won't like it but they may not have a choice.
  7. LOL no but we have had our share of those lately. 😁
  8. Wow so last night was rough to say the least! Tough game. Anyhoo, we are working on some site updates that will be cool but are running into some formatting issues. Everything is still working ok but some of the buttons have moved around etc. Hang tight we are working on it and will have it corrected shortly. GMG

  13. Less than two weeks ago, CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd reported that the American Athletic Conference was trying to court four Mountain West Conference schools as potential replacements for the three AAC schools that left for the Big 12 Conference at the beginning of the month. Now, multiple reports indicate that two of those schools are indeed well on their way to joining the AAC. On Tuesday, Action Network’s Brett McMurphy first reported that Colorado State and Air Force could move to the AAC as early as next week, and Dodd’s CBS colleague Matt Norlander later confirmed that the two schools are in fact “heavily involved” in talks to leave the MWC for the AAC, although it’s “not across the line yet.” Norlander also indicated that the AAC likely wants to add even more schools than just those two. link: https://www.deseret.com/2021/9/28/22698868/reports-2-schools-close-to-leaving-mwc-for-aac-boise-state-waiting-and-hoping-for-big-12-invite
  14. UNT Athletics: North Texas opens state-of-the-art Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility Loyal donor ‘Bruzzy’ makes key contribution For more information contact: Taylor Bryan, 254-709-4411, Taylor.Bryan@unt.edu DENTON, Texas – After nearly two years of planning and construction, Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility had its ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, Sept. 18, prior to the Mean Green’s football game against UAB with both the men’s and women’s teams on hand along with North Texas president Neal J. Smatresk, Vice President and Director of Athletics Wren Baker, members of the UNT System Board of Regents, and the facility’s namesake and lead donor, Jerome “Bruzzy” Westheimer. The $3 million on-campus practice facility is located on the east side of the former Eagle Point Golf Course on the east side of Apogee Stadium and Victory Hall, and houses both the men’s and women’s golf team. Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility is 5,047 square feet and features two hitting bays with state-of-the-art swing analysis and technology. Additional features include a virtual putting green along with chipping and putting areas, locker rooms, study space, coaches offices, a lounge and kitchen area. The North Texas men's and women's golf teams have not had an on-campus outdoor training facility since the former Eagle Point Golf Course was shut down in 2003. Westheimer has been instrumental in the upgrade and development of the UNT golf programs and other university educational endeavors over the past several years. He was honored as the recipient of the 2019 Wings of Eagles Award, which is the most prestigious award presented by the president for a person who embodies the true spirit of UNT through engagement, generosity and affinity. He celebrated the grand opening by hitting an exploding ball filled with streamers for the ceremonial first drive at the facility along with a ribbon cutting by President Smatresk. Other gifts for the project came from Ken and Ann Newman, C. Dan and Le’Nore Smith, David and Lynn Riley, Sam and Valerie Golden, Tom Klammer, Ernie Kuehne, Knowles Cornwell, Ward and Joyce White and Brad and Vicki Olson. The Mean Green men's golf team has a long history of success, including four NCAA national championships, winning 31 conference championships and making 35 NCAA postseason appearances. Head coach Brad Stracke has won three conference championships and made five NCAA postseason appearances since he took over in 2009. Sophomore Vicente Marzilio won the 2021 Conference USA individual championship as a freshman and advanced to the NCAA Regional. The Mean Green women's team, led by head coach Michael Akers, finished last season ranked No. 36 in the nation, the best end-of-season ranking in program history. The team also claimed the first conference championship in program history in 2021, and current senior Audrey Tan won the program’s first individual conference championship. The team earned its first automatic NCAA Regional bid. If interested in naming opportunities at Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility, please contact Mean Green Scholarship Fund at 940-369-7284.
