Go and wear green.  Not the white or black or pink that says "North Texas" in little letters in the corner.  From across the field and on television white or black or pink could be Southern Meth fans.

We will bring eleventy billion people.    Book it. 

We will bring approximately one metric sh*t ton more fans than they brought to Denton last year.

As pointed out in another thread, if Dr. Smatresk's claims about the bus demand are true, there will be 1200-1600 students traveling on those buses alone.  I can't imagine that much more than 1/4 of students going to the game would be traveling on those buses.  So I'd have to say that student attendance should be at least 4k.  Throw in alumni, and I would say that 5000 is almost a conservative estimate.

P.S.: What's happened to the site this evening?  It looks like a clown site.

I put 4k, and that is the guarantee amount for me. I would not doubt a 5k show up because the bus deals going on with John W. and the University. I have heard a lot of talk from alumni about attending this game on here, in person, and social media. So that makes me confident that we are going to have a good turnout.

I know there are a few here who don't like this series, but I got to say, I haven't seen so much hype and promotion for an upcoming season in my time here.  This is really a step in the right direction for us.

Don't ask me why but the Idaho opening game had me more concerned than this one.

I think UNT fans are an optimistic and hopeful bunch for the most part.  This game sets up nicely.  Let's be honest, if we player @Texas again, we would not see as much interest based on our road performances lately.  But with this game being at home in Dallas, it will draw some fans that might not even be making it to Denton.

i would be happy with 3-4k.  If we hit 5k I will be thrilled.  Would be an awesome atmosphere.

I'm going more with the optimistic crowd and saying around 10,000 in Green, around 10,000 that will be a combination of Dallas giveaways along with those in Red, plus something around the usual 10,000 or more ghosts that regularly haunt Gerald J. Ford Stadium to get us to an announced crowd of around 30,000.

I truly hope we bring enough people this year to force their hand to bring in more SMU folks into Apogee next year. What a disappointment that was last year to see the visitor's section so empty.

I can see the guy who is in charge of tracking attendance for SMU doing the, "guess how many marbles are in the jar". tactic when he turns in the attendance, If SMU poops the bed again this year, I can promise you they will bring 2 fans (who live in Denton) to our game next year.

      Neal Smatresk, president of the University of North Texas, hit two pedestrians with his Toyota Highlander on the night of Thursday, Dec. 10, according to a police report obtained by the Denton Record-Chronicle.
      The Denton Fire Department took both pedestrians to Denton Regional Medical Center. Police allowed Smatresk to leave the scene in his vehicle. Neither he nor the pedestrians were charged with a traffic violation.
      The accident happened as Smatresk was leaving a shopping center at 1776 Teasley Lane at 9:19 p.m., according to the report. He was alone in the car. The intersection is two blocks south of Teasley’s intersection with South Interstate 35E.
      Smatresk, 64, was turning left onto Teasley after the light turned green at the shopping center’s private driveway. As he made the turn, he hit the two pedestrians as they were crossing Teasley Lane, the police report states.

      North Carolina offensive coordinator Seth Littrell will be named coach at North Texas, a source told ESPN.
      Littrell and the Tar Heels will play in their first ACC title game Saturday against Clemson.
      Littrell, 37, has been at UNC the past two years. Before joing the Tar Heels, Littrell was an offensive coordinator at Indiana (2012-13) and Arizona (2009-11). He also was an assistant at Texas Tech from 2005-08. Littrell is a 2001 Oklahoma graduate.
      Littrell was one of two finalists, along with TCU co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, a source said.
      Littrell replaces Dan McCarney, who was fired midway through this season after an 0-5 start and 22-32 record with the Mean Green.
