  1. Wrong, they've been told, "No, not now" while the BIG tries to force Notre Dame's decision. Only then will those dominos start falling into place.
  2. I don't foresee this happening, at least not in the stated order. 1) Follow the money trail, 2) Follow the whims and required appeasement of the "Golden Child", 3) See what concessions will be wanted by USC and UCLA. The BIG is attempting to set itself to be unquestionably the nation's premier college football conference, and this is all an attempt to form a more marketable alliance than the SEC. TV money steers this competition. Notre Dame has it's sports parked in the ACC for scheduling but football is still independent, and would stay that way unless sufficiently pressured to change. Their big football rivalries are with BIG schools, USC, Stanford, and the service academies. Notre Dame can actually be pressured to move to the BIG now that all of their major rivals, outside of the service academies, are potentially joining that league. Even Notre Dame cannot risk losing all their rivals. For political reasons it would be extremely difficult for UCLA to outright ditch Cal. Notre Dame will want Stanford added. USC also wants to maintain their longstanding rivalries with Notre Dame, Stanford and Cal. They all get what they want. Washington and Oregon will both be included because of their strong sports programs and national following. All this leaves the BIG as the most marketable, and potentially most dominant, athletics conference with these 21 members, and other open spots to be eventually filled by potential candidates among Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, and Virginia. (yes, Missouri would jump at the opportunity, and the BIG would relish the slap to the SEC) The SEC will be forced to counteract with the additions of among Florida State, Clemson, North Carolina, Virginia, Miami, and maybe a Big XII leftover. Notre Dame would be their ultimate victory but I don't see that happening. The rest of us, locked out of the two "Super Conferences" are relegated to second tier status and will all make the best of the situation presented.
  3. If anyone is actually familiar with the Emancipation Proclamation, it was not intended to end slavery, it was only a tactic to destabilize a wartime enemy. Several states that sided with the Union retained slavery until after the war's end, with Delaware being the final holdout. A more fitting holiday would be celebrating the ratification of the 13th Amendment, which unlike Lincoln's plans to ship freed people to Liberia (created by the US for this purpose), Haiti, and Panama, actually freed people as full citizens of the United States.
  4. I appreciate everything he accomplished for us here and hope he does exceptionally well there in front of his home state fans.
  5. Fan gear will always have some selection of black, grey, white, and tan options. That happens even at schools which utilize and promote their school colors. It's the athletic uniforms and university employee textiles which need to adhere to our school colors. Right now, they very, very rarely do.
  6. Or if there are roving gangs of criminals that stop you and say "wear an orange UNT shirt or we'll beat you up." Let's quit with all the ridiculous scenarios. Our schools athletic teams, as evidenced by the golf team shirt and countless other unique color combinations in all sports, have nothing to do with our university. We simply cannot build brand loyalty while letting everybody and their dog pick coloring for our school's most visible groups, our athletic teams. For varsity uniforms, it's GREEN and WHITE, or it's WRONG.
  7. This is incredible news. Our soccer team annually finishes either at the top or very near the top in whichever conference we play. Hedlund has proven that he can consistently identify talent, recruit talent, and coach talent.
  8. Well, I'm an alumni, you're an alumni, all of us individuals are each an alumni.
  9. It alienates our alumni and fan base when someone arbitrarily changes our school colors to any odd color. It also looks trashy and destroys generations of trying to create an image for our university's sports.
  10. I love our softball team and am one of it's more vocal supporters. The fact remains that the black uniforms aren't representative of the "Mean Green" and should never be worn in any sport aside from maybe an annual blackout game.
  11. That may be overstated, but I believe that the U.S. needs to have a stated goal of only having Russia vacate Ukraine, pay reparations for damages, and hold accountable anyone proven to be involved in committing war crimes. I do agree that Biden's incredible stupidity is making this horrible situation much worse than it should be.
  12. Those colors were possibly worse than all that black crap our teams are wearing now; gaudier for sure, but not as trashy as our Glad Bag uniforms.
