  1. Seems like there's some unknowns. But UNT announced its refunding students that lived on campus prorated for the remainder of the semester as of last week. That would mean roughly 6 weeks living rent and meal plans being refunded. I don't know how many we have living on campus but has to be somewhere between 6,000 and 8,000 I'd think. Assuming the lesser number of 6,000 at a refund cost of $1,500 each (remaining rooms and meals) that would be $9 million. It's just the start and I assumed low end of all of those numbers. Then summer enrollment has to be suffering from this I'd imagine. Summer isn't as big as fall and spring but a school like UNT in a metro area probably does pretty well in the summer. Kids that come home for the summer often take classes at UNT. UNT has a TON of international students. The fall enrollment numbers for those kids have to be in bad shape I'd guess. It seems Vito's point is, there's a lot of unknowns. But if this continues, it most definitely will hurt enrollment. Enrollment would hurt athletics directly (less students = less athletic fee) and indirectly (University suffers they will have less to give athletics). Like many businesses, I'm sure UNT is hoping like hell this thing gets under control. so many are suffering.
  2. I got an email today. In fairness, cancellation wasn't until Thursday. Email on Friday of last week said expect something early this week. I got my email on Tuesday. Definitely had not been a week. But it does seem longer without sports. 😞
  3. No they wouldn't. What makes you say this stuff? P5s pretty much NEVER take buy games, even from P5s. When they do it's at elite programs like Notre Dame. If you can get P5s to take buy games at G5s then you should quit whatever job you have and go into scheduling. You'd be a millionaire off of UCF alone. Miami probably has a $100 million budget. You think they'd sacrifice their football program by playing on the road? I'd like to get on what you're on. Also I'm with MeanGreenTexas, WB and crew have proven to be more adept at scheduling than anyone we've ever had here. I'll wait for final announcement and resolution before I get my drawers in a wad.
  4. This peaked my curiosity so I went back a little further. We finished 2nd once in the Sunbelt but I think there were only 3 teams. So I agree with your initial premise that its one of UNT's lowest performing teams. But I disagree that it was getting better under the previous coach. It seems like the current coach has done just as well if not someone better when looking at both conference finish and dual meet head to head records. Probably an uphill climb without a new facility and as we all kind of agree, that seems a ways off. 2015 - 5th 2014 - 5th 2013 - 2nd (Sunbelt) 2012 - 3rd (Sunbelt) 2011 - 3rd (Sunbelt)
  5. I haven't seen finish this year but last year we had our highest finish ever in CUSA (3rd place). Rice and FIU are both really good programs and head and shoulders above the rest. https://www.collegeswimming.com/results/118549/ But yeah, my guess is its to balance the male female ratio. Not sure on the facilities but if they still use the facilities in Physical education building, they were an issue 20 years ago when I last stepped in there. 🙂
  6. With a full week before our 1st conference games, I wouldn't rest them at all. My biggest concern is rust heading into CUSA tournament. We've lost our last two games after 7 days off. Play to win. They have a full week to rest after that which is a lifetime for a college athlete in the condition these guys are in.
  7. Honestly, I haven't seen much calling for her head. Are you talking about on GMG.com? I'm a fan and want Jalie to do well. I think she's not that far off. My biggest worry is the number of transfers out she seems to have in the program. But I believe if any other coach at UNT had her overall record, this board would be on fire. It seems most of us are pretty patient with her given she's one of ours and inherited a mess. But McCasland also inherited a shit show, has won considerably more and has taken way more criticism on this board than Jalie.
  8. I'm guessing it was overall pitch count and how he figures schedule shakes out tomorrow. Hope was starting to struggle. If you leave her in and we lose, then you may not have her much, if at all, tomorrow. This team has come a long way. Our pitching behind hope isn't bad, but it's nowhere near her. We have a great chance to beat a Northwestern with Hope. We saw the game without her.
  9. I haven't made it to a game yet this year. I will when the weather and my schedule line up. I made it to a half dozen or so last year and I agree. Night and day. They play hard but it's obvious they're having fun. I think the previous coach just kept them too uptight.
  10. You do know you can make a gift to the University and restrict it to whatever you desire including the softball program. I haven't got this specific but I would think they'd accept gifts towards softball salaries. I agree DeLong is doing a hell of a job. WB hired him so I'm sure he wants to keep him. Posting on here 2-3 times a week does nothing. $$$ towards it does and I'm sure every little bit helps.
  11. You have to use the link in the social media posts. Try https://offer.fevo.com/mens-basketball-vs-western-kentucky-flkps5y-35f24bf?fevoUri=mens-basketball-vs-western-kentucky-flkps5y-35f24bf%2F
  12. LOL. When people complain about our crowds, I'm always like "Do you watch these other games?"FIU is having one of their best seasons ever hosting the #1 team in conference in pod play. There might be 500 people there counting the band and cheerleaders. They're Miami with 55,000 students. Ours could be better no doubt, but it could damn sure be a lot worse. ODU, Marshall, WKU, UTEP consistently draw. UAB and MTSU draw when they're good. We do about as well as anyone else.
  13. I'm not sure why you say that. We're recruiting better than every before. I'm pretty sure when Rodney was hired he was given a 5 year contract with pay in the top of the league range. If anything, the current philosophy on contracts has been too aggressive. Definitely hasn't been not being aggressive enough. I wouldn't be surprised if they extended Rodney after last season although I can't recall seeing anything on it.
  14. I didn't try yesterday, but have never had an issue.
