Fear not, the Light The Tower Collective is on the way with innovate approaches to fundraising, like attending Garth Brooks Concerts and soliciting backers from the concert floor!

Next concert, I'm sure they'll bring the big check to do the photo op with since UTSA wants to be flashy like that, making $100k+ announcements..... pffff, honestly 🙄

Not really how our collective likes to roll..... That GB Fundraising Concert was two months ago, but we're more discrete with the announcements, no need to be flashy like that..... Nope, not on RV's watch don't ya know....  We'll have none of that flash, pomp and circumstance, thank you very much!

LMAO.... Indeed.... Low (loathe) and behold the artistry of RV in creating the first "NIL Collective PAC"

Whatever will UNT endorse his association with next?

Does anyone else besides me have difficulty with RV's sentax?

Right there with you I had to reread it multiple times. Also I didn't know he was this effing stupid to post that shit on Twitter through our NIL account

There is a lot of money in San Antonio. If they can get some of it backing UTSA, and not UT or A&M, they could be in good shape.

They will be the next UH if they keep it going.

Signs point to a "Rick V."?

 

He or whoever runs the account made a mistake, clearly.  That said, it is a new collective and probably not a lot of admin support etc. so let's not go overboard.  I just don't see it as a hanging offense.

If that was an official UNT team or department account, and someone wrote that (the politics and going after people) they would be fired.  Absolutely be fired, there would be no discussion.

That's what the consequences would be and ironically RV, with his previous experience as an AD and athletics administrator knows this.

Also, the idea that admin support would be required to avoid mistakes like this is uninformed.  We're no longer in the first decade of social media, there was no "hacking" or "mistaking for a personal account" this was/is piss-poor management and judgement.

It was probably Rick V's burner/personal twitter account, that out of sheer laziness/ignorance, he decided to change the name to the Light the Tower Collective instead of creating a brand new account all together.

If so, he deleted old tweets.  It appears all content - even this personal exchange - was done under the Collective name.

Seriously, whoever thought it was a good idea to bring Rick back in and put him in charge of something important, like the NIL, should probably also be let go. Let's clean house until we get the results we want. UNT athletics shouldn't be the Rick Villareal retirement fund so he can go watch Garth Brooks for free, and act like he was raising money for our student athletes, gtfoh with that... would love to see if we achieved anything with that night out on the funds checkbook.
