  1. The reason Nebraska lost its AAU accreditation is that the medical school is not located in Lincoln. This loss in accreditation was in process before joining the Big10. AAU changed their requirements and Nebraska was caught up in the change.
  2. Using your logic for Wisconsin and other P5 teams, why should they play little old UNT?
  3. Don't be surprised if the cardboard cutouts buy replacement cardboard cutouts that show up as empty seats.
  4. per meangreensports.com: Tailgating The Governor's executive order at this time does not permit any sanctioned tailgating activities larger than 10 people for attendees. As a result, UNT will not be offering rental tents or sponsored activities on The Hill, Eagle Point, or in parking lots until these restrictions are lifted. Any groups fewer than 10 must adhere to local and state COVID-19 safety requirements including, but not limited to, face coverings, social distancing and number of attendees.
  5. I suppose the Cheer fundraiser  is a UNT sanctioned event and with all the cancelled and suspending of events, what is the status of this event?

  6. Are you inferring that if UNT joins the MWC, we will be going to the Rose Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl? I think what got TCU to those bowls was the the quality of TCU's football team.. A case could be made that the MWC contributed to the success of TCU but only a small portion. If TCU had lost several games in MWC conference play, TCU would not have played in those bowls. Have any other MWC teams gone to the Rose and/or Fiesta bowls as members of the MWC? Merely joining the MWC conference does not assure participating in the top bowls or receiving an invitation to join a P5 conference.
  7. Yeah, fans attending away games has got to be the dumbest reason ever, I'm sure the team feels the same way.
  8. Obviously, Seth didn't accept that job based on salary. He is willing to wait for the right opportunity for him. In the mean time, he is our coach. Perhaps there was other factors such as being forced to retain certain coaches or something else but money whipping him did NOT encourage him to take the job. GO MEAN GREEN!!!
  9. If I remember correctly, they will not have a raising ceremony but will acknowledge the accomplishment by recognizing the banner. And the team has already received their championship rings.
  10. Coach said yes they will put up a banner but it will not be made into a big deal. He said now the emphasis is on making NCAA tournament.
  11. This is why the MWC has basically cut ties with the networks. The scheduling hurt attendance and MWC was tired of having game times dictated to them for a much decreased amount of money.
  12. I believe the capitalist model would include pay for performance. The more you contribute to the bottom line (winning?) the more pay you receive. Catch a touchdown pass, receive a bonus or pay for position. Or perhaps pay for perceived value versus other players at the same position. Universities could setup a draft to sign players then pay based on which round they were drafted. Alternately pay players based on a socialist system. Everyone receives the same pay regardless of sport, position, gender, P5 or G5, wealth of the university, etc. Endless debate on the pay. And by the way, get an education. Then charge the athletes for tuition, room and board, books and fees.
  13. Probably closer to a pond of red.
