Hopefully they were mourning the end of black erroneously being used as a school color by our athletics department and spirit groups. It clearly is not, and such use is a violation of university policy. Black may only be used as a tertiary accent accent color in outlining school marks or for printed marks in monochromatic communications. University of North Texas Board of Regents approval is required for any deviation from this policy. Any intentional deviation from university policies can result in disciplinary action and possibly termination.
These statements are not opinion, they are policy.
All members are guilty, not just UNT. But I will admit, having a member that is on a 13 game losing streak vs FBS teams in OOC is baaad for your conference. Having said member reach your conference championship game is even worse.
Some of this is a function of the NCAA lifting the annual signing limit for this year and next. With the limits in place, then signing too many JUCO or Portal players with less than four years of eligibility remaining mean that down the road you team is going to be short on players. Not sure what they will do in four years when all these portal players start running out of eligibility.
