This is a repost from another board in this forum to garner more responses.

Why is our athletic staff so small compared to other CUSA schools? 

We only have two compliance employees, a relatively small marketing team, only one graphics guy on board and only three people working in the ticket office. 

Is this something we can expect to change in the near future? I read a post on this forum referencing the $26 million debt our athletic department has but perhaps this is one of those times where you have to spend money to make money.

Also, I made arrangements to be in Denton for SMU weekend (some have speculated that game could be the first sellout in Apogee history) and would appreciate some recommendations for good restaurants and some fun activities to do with the wife and kids while we are in town. I'm trying to avoid the cliche places like Rudy's and etc.

You never answered this on the BBall forum. I too am curious as to what schools you are using as a measuring stick.

@UNTFan23 I'm using other schools in our conference as a measuring stick, for example Marshall, UAB, Charlotte, UTSA, and FAU just to name a few. Based on what I saw online, we have one of the smallest athletic staffs across the board in all of CUSA. 

UAB: https://www.uabsports.com/staff.aspx

Marshall: http://www.herdzone.com/staffdir/mars-staffdir.html

Charlotte: https://www.charlotte49ers.com/staff.aspx

UTSA: http://goutsa.com/staff.aspx

FAU: http://www.fausports.com/school-bio/fau-school-bio-directory.html

      From The Athletic's Stewart Mandel:

      All strictly G5-assigned bowls will be maintained, but I would expect absolutely minimum latitude for there to be P5-G5 pairings of any kind this bowl season.

      I haven't been plugged into much news about this upcoming football season.
      Can someone point me to an existing thread or explain where UNT stands right now in terms of its schedule?
      I know A&M has cancelled all non-conference games this season but assuming C-USA doesn't shut down this season are we still expecting to play our non-conference opponents as it stands today?
      SMU, Houston, HBU?
      If we are still planning on playing everyone on schedule besides A&M, this season doesn't seem completely lost as I had once thought. As long as CUSA doesn't cancel, I feel pretty good about our success in the upcoming season.

      12. North Texas Mean Green
      2019-20: 20-11 (14-4), Conference USA regular season champion
      Grant McCasland hasn’t wasted any time getting things up and running in Denton. The Mean Green won 20 games for the third straight year, and the 34th-most efficient offense, per KenPom, propelled them to a C-USA title.
      The biggest revelation was the emergence of Javion Hamlet, who turned out to be one of the best JuCo transfers in the country last season. The guard led the Mean Green in scoring at 14.6 points per game and assists at 4.7. His play earned him C-USA Player of the Year honors, and it’s reasonable to think that he enters next season as one of the frontrunners to take home the award next year.
      Hamlet will need to be a star again to help pick up some of the slack from the departures of Umoja Gibson (transfer to Oklahoma) and Deng Geu. However, he won’t be alone. The Mean Green bring back four other seniors, including starters James Reese and Zachary Simmons. Thomas Bell also returns after leading the team in rebounds and hitting just under 37 percent from deep coming off the bench.
      It all runs through Hamlet, though. When he goes, the Mean Green go. Lucky for McCasland, he has one of the best point guards in the country at his disposal. North Texas should be in the top tier of C-USA again.
