Nothing is certain in the league this year. UTSA shat the bed against MUTS last night. MUTS was 3-12 coming into the game. So we are tied for 2nd with Ballsack.

I also watched FAU/Marshall last night. Both of those teams are going to very tough. I wouldn't be surprised if the league champ ended up with 5 to 6 conference losses.

Anyone know if they’re running any promos for this game.  Bringing the family and it gets expensive to get a family of 5 in.

I haven't seen any ticket specials, but kids wearing a jersey get in free on Saturdays...below is from the Mean Green Insider newsletter dated 1/4/19.  GMG

Does it matter what kind of jersey? Can it be a football jersey or does it have to be basketball?

It doesn't specify and when announcements have been made at the game, they only say "jersey."  My kid is wearing his UNT football jersey so that should work.  Actually, I suppose any jersey would work (NFL, NHL, school, etc.) since the language is broad.

Okay so they do not even specify a North Texas Jersey? That's odd. Thank you for the information.

I sent an email to the ticket office to clarify but not sure if I'll hear back in time.  If I do, I'll post it here.

They now have markers on the seats for season ticket holders. Definitely a great move by the AD on this one. Literally every game but 2 over the last 4 years and change people were in our seats.

FAU fell to Western  and LaTech fell to Charlotte. This confrende is crazy. Makes me hate the lose to UTSA all the more.

Forgot to mention... while we were walking to the food provided by the AD department today we passed Rice coach talking to a reporter (clearly not from here) and he said they are most concerned about Simmons and they are going to try to stop him from getting the ball because UNT tried to get him a touch most every possession. Also slow down Ryan Woolridge. Let’s hooe they fail at both. 🙂

5 minutes in and it’s clear we are a different team home. More of a sense of urgency and they play smarter. 

8-2 good guys at the 15:17 mark. 🙂

NT 8 -------- Rice 2

 

15:17 to go

 

 

Pretty good start.  A lot of drives to the bucket by our guards.  They can't cover us.

Starting to get that sick feeling in my stomach 

We just haven’t been able to hit shots the past couple of games. I am not sure what is going on but for a team that’s going to play 4 guards we better run the floor and hit our shots if we want to win this conference.
