Friday Boasts Best Student Incentive Yet...

Recommended Posts

RV never did much on Twitter, did he?  Did RV even have a computer?

I like what "The Wren" is doing at NT.

I strongly disagree. Considering all of the permit holders that don't get to campus before 9am and don't have a spot, trouble finding room on the streets that doesn't block driveways, dumpsters or fire hydrants, and police taking advantage of all of the college students that don't know the local laws, me and most students I know would prefer the free parking any day of the week. And maybe it's just the old man in me but I absolutely hate Apple products.

Parking is what like 180 for foutes? maybe it has gone up since "my day". A mac has a resale value of $1,000+ generally given that new mac book pros are what like $1400+? I'm just saying, if I have 0 interest in basketball, an apple watch or a free parking isn't getting me off my couch to come watch. That may be some young kid logic, but yeah....

I'll be curious how students react.  I think the value of this extends way beyond the financial savings, but there's no way to be sure.

How about just getting off your couch to support your university in the tournament finals?  That should be enough to get a student or alumni to attend.

$250/yr

And the offer was for the duration of their time at UNT.

So, if a Freshman/Sophomore wins, they could be looking at $750 - $1000.

RV didn't know how to spell.  

Before anyone down votes me for this, it's a fact confirmed by people who worked with him.

That doesn't happen, clearly that doesn't happen. Look at our attendance. 

Keep down voting the truth. Go find students that aren't on this board and ask them their thoughts about the chance at winning a darn parking pass. You have to think like a student that isn't interested in UNT sports to understand. Then again, old denton wouldn't understand what would actually make people show up. You saw what the AD did for football incentives, now we have 3 parking passes? good one. Granted old denton wouldn't even give away a pencil to get students to show up.

I am not down voting anything, but I find it amazing that students have to be bribed to support their school.  Of course, typically these are the same students that complain about our athletics.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the "what's in it for me" generation.

I agree 900000000000000000000% I think its ABSURD that we have to give S### away to get people to show up. I agree with what you guys are saying that "what happened to showing up to support your school". I agree people. This "generation" which I hate saying/using isn't like that, at least not at north texas. UT & TAMU, different story. It really is super sad, but what do you do when most of your student body isnt into sports and thinks its possibly a waste of money? *see athletic fee vote for an example.

We need to put a 'Do you like sports?' checkbox on the UNT application.

You haven’t been around here (gmg.com) long.  I don’t know how long you’ve been around NT, but all the students currently on campus know is losing B-ball as of the end of the CUSA tournament.

Prior to that, JJ had us playing well, but that was a long time ago.  It takes a while to rebuild that fan base.  If McCasland can have our guys playing at this level for the next few seasons & contending for Conf. Championships, you’ll see the type of fans you’re describing.
