  2. The Mean Green Game Day goals are important to reiterate because they demonstrate how Hank Dickenson thinks and works. This campaign thrives, as do many other civic projects he leads, because of Hank’s relationships in Denton. Mean Green Game Day is one of many ventures on which Hank and I have collaborated over the years. He has chaired the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and currently sits on the CVB’s Advisory Board, both roles where he’s been intricately involved in our initiatives. He has invested in Denton for more than 20 years, and not just to tout the Mean Green (thou

  5. UNT already has undergone one search for a key hire in its athletic department during Smatresk’s tenure. The Mean Green were in the market for a new football coach after parting ways with Dan McCarney five games into last season. UNT used the search firm DHR International while looking for a replacement for McCarney and eventually lured former North Carolina assistant coach Seth Littrell to Denton. Smatresk was heavily involved in the search that led UNT to hire Littrell. UNT’s president could look to hire a search firm again. A firm could help with the search process by vetting
  6. http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/football/article41992233.html Read the part about "I never take credit" then go read the Hattiesburg Hustler's online bio/resume on gomeangreen.com Ya, whatever you freaking con artist. Read this article again, folks. Look how it says Littrell was purely a Smatresk and Villarreal hire. Hold BOTH men accountable when the inevitable occurs.
  7. What kind of season will RV need to see to extend Benford, which gets him an extension, as well? .500 or better? Top half finish in CUSA regular season? Remember, this isn't what you think he should accomplish to keep his job, its what RV thinks he needs to see to keep Benford as the coach? My guess is that he has to finish at .500 by the end of the regular season and needs to finish the regular season in the top half of CUSA, meaning 7th place or higher. If this is correct, can Benford somehow jump up that bar?
  8. http://www.star-telegram.com/opinion/editorials/article69313582.html You see, the captain doesn't change the oil, but the military recognizes he is responsible for those that do. That's why he was relieved of command. But if the current BOR or Presdent of UNT had been his boss, he would have been given 14 more years to "prove himself."
  9. Since it's going to be tough getting more than 500 warm bodies in the pit for games next year, and since Rick Villarreal couldn't promote the 1988 dream team, I thought we could offer our own promotional ideas. I'll go first: Tony Benford Unused Suit Night - there will be a drawing at halftime to give away one of the unused suits Benford bought to each conference tournament in which he coached. I mean, he doesn't need them, right? This will also have the side benefit of increased concession sales for those showing up to hopefully win the suit. The other advantage is, by my count, Benford
  10. With UNT students having the student fee increased while UNT fails at every major athletic sport, how long until the students demand not to pay for athletics anymore? A bad football season this year and I think you see a student led campaign to discontinue the athletics fee. I may be mistaken, but I think since it was voted in place by students, it can be voted out. Maybe @UNTflyer can shed some light. That will kill UNT athletics, and will be the legacy of Neal Smatresk and Rick Villarreal. Watch and see.
  11. http://meangreenblog.dentonrc.com/2016/03/benford-confirms-his-return.html/ Posted in the basketball forum, but this huge chunk of abdicating responsibility by RV and silent endorsement by Neal Smatresk, who at this point is just another in the long line of presidents at UNT who is all talk, deserves to be posted on the most active forum. This is all about protecting RV, a coward who can't even announce this to the press. Enablers like @flyonthewall care more about Rick Villarreal staying employed than they do about UNT athletics. Never more evident than with this idiotic retainmemt.
  12. Rick Villarreal said there would be accountability if Benford failed this season. That message was echoed by his shills on this board, most notoriously by @flyonthewall. I guess we now know what both their words mean. Absolutely zero. We also know that protecting RV is job one for Ernie, Fly and the like. It isn't about providing a chance to be competitive for student athletes, it's about protecting a man they consider a close, personal friend. Have fun losing, North Texas. Then again, it is what you do.
  13. We should probably start this thread now. I don't know how long he will make it past the football hire...
  14. Tony Benford was Rick Villarreal's hire (No matter how much anyone will later try and tell you differently). It was extremely clear very early to anyone that has ever played basketball at any level that Benford was EXTREMELY out of his depth. Many of us called for a firing after the 1st year because it was evident that Benford couldn't coach. Rick Villarreal defended Benford. Again and again and again, always pointing to the next year as the year Benford would turn this around. And here we sit. Year one was 12-20. Year four was 12-20. That is the definition of zero improvement. Non
  15. When UNT losses one more game, the men's basketball program will be guaranteed of another losing season. Does Benford get fired or extended? It seems like an outrageous question, but we are UNT and Rivk Villarreal is still AD. It should come the day after the end of the season. Will it?
  16. @Brett Vito now is the time for the question "What is the future status of Tony Benford?" to be asked to Rick Villarreal. His answer, or refusal to answer, will tell us a lot.
  17. So say UNT retains or even extends a disaster of a head coach. What is your response? Will you keep giving at the current level? Will you renew basketball season tickets? Will you walk away? Will you protest naked in front of the athletic department? Or will you do what UNT fans have done for decades: just lay down and take it?
  18. Saw on the news this morning that UNT is posting signs around campus for how people can receive mental health help. A reliable source has told me the first batch of these signs will be posted in and around Apogee and the Superpit. The same source has told me none of these signs will be posted in the suite level of Apogee due to every mental health professional in Denton County agreeing that those folks were beyond any help and clinically insane as defined by Einstein. As you can see, the first one was posted at Apogee: http://www.fox4news.com/news/97077061-story

  20. Received a letter in the mail from the athletic department: Silver (cheapest) club seats: $300 MGC donation per seat. mid level club seats: $400 MGC donation per seat top level: $500 MGC donation per seat. This is a $50 per seat bump in Mean Green Club donation level for the silver level seat holders. I don't know what the bump is, if any, to the mid and top level holders. i also don't know if the per seat thing is new. I only have 2 seats, so it doesn't affect me that much. If someone does know, please post. I still think the smart thing to do would have been n
  21. 3 more losses and a winning season becomes impossible. How much time is left on the Benford clock? Will RV show us all how much he is AD for life and extend Benford out of foolish pride? Or is Benford gone before the end of February? I seriously think RV extends Benford for 2 years, citing "next year" as the reason. Weeks, if not days, until we find out.
  22. So, it's been about 3 months now and no transcript or audio posting of this interview. And Sidway has been consistently scooping Vito... Will we ever see this 2 hour interview transcribed? Has there been a backroom deal to quash another embarrassing, lie filled RV moment? Or is Sidway just way, way, way overworked? If any of you know him, see if you can get an answer. I haven't been able to get an answer from him through social media...
  23. In podcast #156 Evan, Harry, and Ashton talk about the hiring of new head football coach Seth LIttrell and the excitement it has generated for the fanbase. UNT Athletic Director Rick Villarreal joins the conversation and offers his thoughts on Littrell as well as other items of interest. Brandon Berens joins us from his the UNT campus where he gives us a student perspective on the challenges a student faces during finals. Ashton shares insight from his day spent with Coach Littrell as well as some thoughts on the future of his Beyond the Green series. Click here for the Audio Link to Barber
