    I think the early start has some effect on the lack of hype. But still…

    I think you're correct.  I used to enthusiastically rush to the store to buy Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine as soon as it hit the stores.  This year, not so much.

    Looking at the SMU rendering 2 comments above this one, but it appears to me their new Video Screen/Scoreboard is at least 4 X’s larger than our present one at fabulous Apogee Stadium. It’s location is perfect.

    I’ve got a flat screen TV in my study that’s larger than those little things at Apogee Stadium.

    Let me get this straight. The boosters got together and started the collective and went to the athletic department and they recommended RV to head the collective. He’s not pitching in any money. 
     

    Same RV that everyone wanted gone. Same RV that oversaw one of the below average athletic departments in FBS during his tenure. He’s supposed to excite people to give to the collective when he couldn’t get people to join the Mean Green Club. 
     

    This is the very definition of insanity. We’re happy because he’s not mad at UNT for letting him stick around doing a mediocre job until he literally had to go? 

    "He’s not pitching in any money."  Do we know this to be a fact?

     "Same RV that oversaw one of the below average athletic departments in FBS."  We've always had a below average Athletic Dept up until the last 4-5 years.  Think of the school President we had during his tenure, up until Smastrek took over.  

    meanrob, I understand what you're saying, and you are correct.  I'm for giving RV a second chance, just not at running our Athletic Department.

    I believe it had something to do with us wanting to be either Texas State or UNT (I don’t recall which) and Texas said it was too close to their name at that time. And at that time, what the all white Texas Longhorns wanted, Darrell Royal’s all white team got.

    Thanks.  I just needed a refresher on the name change subject.  I remember being pissed that "Southwest Texas State" was able to change their name to Texas State Univ.

    Well done sir.

     

    As I pointed out in another thread where I was discussing (actual) North Texas history. We can waste our time by blaming SMU for keeping us down, but UT has screwed with us much more than any other school in Texas. Get out your copy of "The Story of North Texas" and read the chapter about what should have been our final name change in 1961. 

    I don’t have the book on North Texas’ history.  Can you give me the “Cliff Notes” answer to the  ‘61 name change?

    I’ve found 100% of the time that Wren responds.  Email or Twitter.  It’s amazing.  PLEASE email him your experience and I’d put money on the issue getting fixed. 

    If you have continued problems with the Athletic Dept., make sure Wren Baker knows about it.  He’s the man that can fix the problems with Athletics.  Email Wren.  The  squeaky wheel gets the oil.
