Hey, give me a check. I'm just gonna lie here and roll around.

*Man, I love RV quotes.*

Yes! Relief mounts! This is awesome.

Butts in seats, folks. Butts in seats.

Thanks Harry...Thanks Evan. Very well done...professional, courteous and entertaining. Got a few tidbits out of it as well especially if you read between the lines on some of the responses.

Time for this old guy to hit the sheets...Good Night Mean Green Nation wherever you are!

Thanks, gentlemen. It seemed short for a podcast with RV--don't those usually go an hour and a half?

RV was interviewing some applicants for the open softball coaching position before we started and he had a speaking engagement right after our broadcast. He's a busy dude at this time of the year so yes it was a little shorter than usual.

Great job, fellas. Good to hear from Evan. I feel like I haven't seen him on the board much lately.

I'm trying not to get too excited about the uniform sale. My guess is that there will be a pretty hefty price tag. I look forward to seeing them on Monday.

The baseball stadium concept sounds great. I wish there was more of an in-your-face financial campaign going on for it right now.

Thanks 90, I've just been lurking, but now we are back in full form...

The helmet looked great and they will be very popular! I definitely want one!

Thanks to RV for sitting down with us...This time of the year his schedule is pretty full.

Looking forward to Monday and the unveiling.

By reading through the lines of RV's comments, it seems that we are going to buy another home game in 2014. That is good.

It also seems that 2015 is a 5 game home season. That is bad.

Did not get that a 5 game home season was in the offering. Seemed to me that he was saying 6 games each year. Let's all keep our fingers crossed.

"Our goal is to have 6 home games" is the exact quote. That goal wasn't met last year and won't be on 2015 (at SMU, at Iowa, at Tennessee).

Talking is nice. Doing means something.

So, no way possible to dump the Tennessee or Iowa game and replace it with a home one in 2015. That is absolutely impossible?

Since the Tennessee game was just announced, I would suggest that is going to happen. Could it be a replacement game for Iowa? Possibly, but I doubt it (because of what happened last year). And we all know SMU is locked in.

Also, that would mean buying a home game in 2014 and 2015. Severly doubt that happens.

My Take On The Podcast

I got excited listening to the podcast. Great job, fellas! :)

And thanks, Harry, for adding the question for RV about luxury suite sales and how they are coming along. Sounds like they are going well. RV said the suites sell themselves if they can just get those who would be prospects for such into Apogee and I'd think that would be because of what they see would be their vantage point. What a great place for a company that would invest into a luxury suite to entertain their own potential customers, eh?

Rick V mentioned buying a game so I wonder how that translates as far as what level of schools he would want to buy to come into Apogee Stadium? Hopefully he will have an opportunity to talk to more schools other than the ones leaving for the AAC. Tulsa U doesn't need too much more of a Texas presence than they will already get with SMU and UH, but that is just one opinion.

Having regular Apogee games with Army, Navy and Air Force would be fine with me, especially since they have a built-in audience here in northern Texas.

It's summer time and all are excited about most anything but I still like the direction things are going in Mean Green Country and a winning season this Fall would get this Mean Green rocket airborne in ways we've not seen in quite awhile. Coach Mac is absolutely doing things the way Fry would have done it but why not---Coach Fry was his mentor in his first coaching gig as an assistant at Iowa.

Rick V mentioned that another ex Dallas Cowboy-gone-media type went bonkers on his first trip and tour of fabulous Apogee Stadium; of course, that being Moose Johnson of CBS.

Great podcasts! Thanks for sharing!

GMG!

Much thanks, as always, Evan and Harry for the Podcasts! As for the 'Throwback' Uni, I'll take it. Would have preferred wearing different Throwback Unis from different Eras for each Home Game, but that would've gotten expensive. But, it will be GREAT to see the WORM again for the first time in over 30 years! :thumbsu: Now, get working on the Worm T-Shirts, Hats, etc...

Great job as usual. Next time on with RV, please ask why it appears that we have a difficult time with the licensing process. It appears every other school in the nation does not have the problems good ol' UNT has in this area.

      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.
