  1. 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?

  2. 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.
  3. Yeah, fans attending away games has got to be the dumbest reason ever, I'm sure the team feels the same way.
  4. 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!!!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Probably closer to a pond of red.
  10. Arkansas, where the family tree is a vine.
  11. The receiving team can still attempt to return the kick by not signaling a fair catch.
  12. If UH has such a great athletic program then why did the Big12 turn thumbs down on your application to join. They evaluated UH along with other schools and decided you and the rest did not have near enough to bring to the Big12 party. And even several high placed Texas politicians could not sway the decision.
  13. Just picked up my ticket at the ticket office and they said the attendance number in the box score was an error. They said the attendance was north of 2,000.
  14. Maybe North Carolina and/or UCF are looking to keep their travel costs down.
  15. He has scheduled a home and home with the Univ of California. I don't remember the dates.
  16. I received a koozie, thank you. Very cool.
  17. I found out Monday night the planning had already started just in case. If we do host we are on a very short leash most likely 4 or 5 days according to the staffer I talked to about it.
  18. Nebraska started receiving a full share this year. As a member of the Big 12, Nebraska received a larger share of the income than most of the other members. It was not all about the money. Yes, it was a major factor but the academic benefits and the equality in the decision making was also major factors.
  19. Nebraska's chancellor was warned of the upcoming conference reorganisation and was told that NU likely could be left standing alone. Proactively, he contacted the Penn State chancellor and asked if the Big 10 would be interested. The rest as they say is history. Nebraska was dissatisfied with Texas running the conference and the other schools kowtowing to Texas. Remember the Big 8 formed the Big 12 with 4 schools of the Southwest conference. So a chance to join the Big 10 where all schools have an equal say and share the money equally was too good not to pass up. Plus the Big 10 has an outstanding academic sharing program and private high speed network among the member schools that was and still is unique to the Big 10.
  20. Evidently you didn't see the beatdown of Ohio State by Iowa (55 - 24) by a greater margin than Iowa beat us.
  21. At the last Army game (Fouts) they had a very good turnout. Although Navy did have a better turnout for their game against us.
