  1. A friend of mine, an ACU graduate, told me a story about an uncle of his, a professor, who came the ACU to deliver a lecture. His uncle went out to dine at a well known local Steak House and ordered wine. The waiter had already engaged him in a brief conversation and was aware of his employment. When he ordered the wine the waiter asked "Would you like that in a mug?". He asked "Why would I want it in a mug?". The waiter stated that "Usually when the professors order wine they ask for it in a mug." He had it served in a wine glass. Perhaps if we offered beer in a mug or perhaps a plastic soft drink cup with a lid and straw it would help with sales.
  2. Actual 31,657 Announced 33,246 We rent the SMU crowd counter for the game 56,789
  3. It is a limited first edition that will only increase in value, don't ruin it by repainting. on second thought go ahead it will make mine even more valuable. With new tariffs on China it will be even rarer.
  4. When Bernie Sanders compared Baltimore to a third world country, and made other negative statements about the city, was that racist?
  5. I think he is referencing FCS. I can't really think of any other conference lower than AAC!
  6. We are always their Super Bowl, or at least their Safeway Bowl.
  7. No more Big Texan Steak Ranch? No more free 72 ounce steak? It can't be true! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Texan_Steak_Ranch
  8. The initial plan (bigger than UNT)... https://www.underdogdynasty.com/university-texas-san-antonio-roadrunners/2018/10/4/17936680/utsa-roadrunners-president-taylor-eighmy-teases-planned-indoor-practice-facility-facilities-ipf Reality... https://www.utsa.edu/strategicplan/tactical-initiatives/athletics/index.html
  9. You statement regarding a donor is pure speculation. If a donor or donors existed they would say so. Who really knows where the scholarship money comes from. Esports is funded by student service fees. They actually call themselves "athletes". https://www.dallasobserver.com/arts/university-of-north-texas-becomes-first-public-texas-school-to-give-esports-scholarships-11687998 I did not say funding one was the direct result of defunding the other. One distinction is comparative academic value. As it relates to Debate funding I don't have time to explain everything. However, if you read my post, I stated they were told they would be defunded in 3 years. Since the student (peers) committee changes membership from year to year and for a host of other reasons they lack the authority lay claim to the future. Also, you might want to read the applicable law relating to student service fees. Debate scholarships exist and have been funded by donors.
  10. At the same time they are spending funds on esports, they are defunding a program that actually serves an academic purpose. The Debate team, that has existed for over 100 years and has won a National Championship, has over the last few years seen funding drop and has been informed that the program will no longer be funded in 3 years.
  11. Total of somewhere between 9 and 12 Stars?
  12. Hopefully the Denton Caravan will include a tour of the new indoor practice facility.
  13. It is now down. The landscape is changing. Best moment was when Ron Maestri announced invitation to our 3rd consecutive New Orleans Bowl!
  14. I think I can handle kickball. Let me check my schedule with my wife.
  15. Didn't you post before last football season that you would not go to the SMU game because we would lose? Will you go next season? Don't worry about what others do, just show up! By the way I know many residents of Denton County that graduated from UT, OU, A&M, KSU, SMU, TCU, Texas State, etc. who have Club Seats at Apogee.
  16. https://www.midmajormadness.com/2019/3/17/18269550/cbi-bracket-tournament-college-basketball-postseason-ncaa-upset-west-virginia-depaul-cbu-gcu-uvu West Virginia is playing in the CBI. UAB and Southern Miss are both playing. CIT is a much weaker field.
  17. Would you support WBI participation? After watching the tournament games I would buy home tickets. Rice won it 2 years ago. I think it would be a good move for the future.
  18. Every member of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd team all CUSA was a guard except for Charles Bassey the freshman from WKU.
  19. Gibson makes all Freshman team. http://www.conferenceusa.com/news/2019/3/11/mens-basketball-mbb-all-conference-teams-announced.aspx
