  1. Are you considering joining a conference that would sell less tickets ? If not, then why plan on having substandard facilities when that opportunity may arise. An undersized Fouts helped keep North Texas out of SWC and Big 8 consideration for decades, and I would hate to see an unexpanded Apogee to do the same with current larger conferences. Apogee was designed to be eventually completed as a significantly larger stadium when it was built but budget constraints and forecasted demand made a bigger facility, suitable for a 40k school, not feasible at the time. The situation has changed now and North Texas needs to be proactively building for future demands or risk being rejected again because of substandard facilities.

    Where to rewatch Arkansas game?

    It's been replayed a couple times on the SEC Network, but it is edited to show mostly drives that ended in scores. Unfortunately I didn't set the system to record while I was at the game. I did record the edited-for-time-reduction version but it skips too many plays.
  3. I too retreated to the concourse as well for a cold soda an a brief respite from the sun. It wasn't brutally hot like a few games we've hosted in Denton but there was absolutely no break from the sun and no breeze in that enclosed bowl.

    Tailgating in Ark?

    I just had a flashback to the pregame function the last time North Texas played at Arkansas in 2007. It was hot and there was nowhere to park close to the stadium but we eventually found the Official North Texas Tailgate Party tent. It was nice just to have shade and something cold to drink. A group of younger alumni, around ten of them, showed up a little wile later happy to find this small green oasis in a sea of red clad hog fans. Joy quickly turned to frustration and disbelief for them as they were quickly intercepted by the Mean Green Club coordinator who informed them that the soft drinks and the shade were provided only for dues paying members of the Mean Green Club and they were asked to leave. I was appalled but certainly not shocked because this type of rude behavior was typical for this individual when she wasn't being closely monitored by her boss. I kept thinking that through ticket purchase and travel those people had made such an effort to support North Texas, and possibly would subsequently turn their backs on the program forever because of the wicked actions of one dreadful individual. That horrid person is now long gone and this road-trip and tailgate at Arkansas should be significantly better for everyone. Go Mean Green Beat the Hogs!
  6. Editor's Note: Brett Vito covers North Texas football for the Denton Record-Chronicle. We asked him to answer five questions about the Mean Green to give Arkansas fans a better insight into Saturday's opponent.

    Jim would you start a new thread and tell the whole story. There aren't too many people that know the historic details.

    Nice web site, I love the attention to detail. I, like many of you, have long pined for the day when I could shop for a Nike Tulane Green Wave Early Season Polo right in the middle of our Mean Green gear page.

    UNT vs Arkansas Watch Party?

    Plan B for everyone wanting to have a watch party. I already bought some but there will be a lot of tickets available in Fayetteville for cheap this weekend because of their loss at Colorado State. Just go up there for the tailgate parties an then purchase tickets from fans or scalpers when it is very close to kickoff.
  11. Winning non conference games, often perceived as pre-season games, is nice but certainly not imperative. Morris would be a fool if he spent this whole week concentrating on North Texas when they have a trip to Auburn looming the following week. As much fun as they are to cheer about or bitch about post-game, the non-league games have no lasting implications. Arkansas has a perfect trap game scenario for rival Auburn if they prepare correctly with Auburn playing a highly ranked LSU team this week and another highly ranked Mississippi State team the week after their match-up. Which of those two games, Auburn or North Texas, would the Arkansas fans be more interested in bragging about? Winning against North Texas does absolutely nothing for Arkansas if they get their tails whipped every week in league play.
  12. I know there is the "keep selling it out first" argument, and I hear you, but you're wrong. But, having a 30K stadium and a 28K fan base is going to keep regional P5 schools from wanting to schedule games at Apogee. The costs of not expanding Apogee may therefore exceed the costs of expansion through lost revenue. One of the main reasons schools would schedule UNT is to provide a game in the metroplex that their DFW fans and alumni can attend. Unlike SMU we do not have a practically empty stadium to offer. Where would the fans of Baylor, Kansas State, Texas Tech, A&M, or TCU sit if we were to schedule them? North Texas was able to host Baylor, Kansas State, and TCU at Fouts Field because we had a relatively small fan base at the time. That is simply not he case now. Games against Texas Tech and A&M were diverted to the Cowboys Stadium because our own stadium couldn't accommodate the crowds. We certainly don't want to have to do that again. Growing pains. What a great thing to have.

  15. Voila! Good to have the Plum back. I'm happy to see his nephews and nieces let him out of the attic (or that he escaped again).
