Promotion ideas for next year's men's basketball games


Recommended Posts

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 has 11 unused suits. That means you could have Benford Unused Suit Night for every conference home game plus 2 OOC home games. It's the gift the keeps on giving and can even be combined with other promotional ideas because, well, there are almost as many unused suits as home games. And it's not like Benford will have any future use for these suits.

This is only semi-tongue-in-cheek. If you are going to choose to be awful, embrace the suck. Poke fun at your failings. It's not like anyone at UNT would care, and you just might generate a gate from those who come for the humor.

It's actually the ten year anniversary of our first tourney team under JJ.  Reunion?

Really doesn't fit in the "Celebrate The Suck" theme and makes way too much sense for Rick Villarreal to consider. Unless he reads this board. Again.

At the closest home game to February 1, 2017, all fans presenting signed ticket stubs from five earlier home games will be given a copy of the just-published best-seller " Assisted Suicide For Dummies". In addition, the stubs will be deposited in a sealed box to be opened at half-court during halftime. Dr. Smatresk will draw a ticket stub and one lucky winner will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Dr. Jack Kevorkian Memorial Clinic in Detroit, MI for a free consultation. In the event the return airfare is unused, the Mean Green Club will receive the proceeds in memory of the winner.
