UNT buys out final year of contract w/ UTA

“I just need to move the game to next year,” said Benford, whose Mean Green team finished 12-20 in his first season at the helm.

How much you think this cost us ?

I'm taking a stab in the dark here , $40,000 ?

No idea. After 6 straight years and talk on both sides about how everyone loved the series, I wouldn't be shocked if buyout language was pretty lax.

Wasting money. Losing a great annual series. Taking a 30 minute "road trip" off the schedule.

Being a guy who has at least four suits, I don't understand why he keeps going with Hearts.
