Time for my annual bitch post about them fucking up donations/tickets/parking passes.

I renewed my season tickets and made a donation a couple of months ago. Got two letters in the mail this week. One thanking me for my donation and the other letting me know I am two weeks past the deadline to renew season tickets. This is my 4th year donating and buying season tickets and I have had to call them to fix shit every single year. So disorganized.

LT, I had a similar situation. Renewed my tickets online, and 3 days later get a call from a student volunteer that there is still time to renew my tickets. At this point it's best just to realize it is what it is.

Just think... If you donated more... They could try and wine and dine you MULTIPLE times for the donation you already made!

Here’s Larry - he kinda reminds me of something that Mick Jagger once said “I won’t get out of my pajamas for less than $ 25M dollars”.


Here’s a newsflash Larry - you ain’t Mick Jagger...

Got a call yesterday to purchase season tickets. "Ummm yeah, I see you.....uh I see you purchase season tickets and that it's been some time since you last purchase any"? "Let me cut you off right there bud. I am not contributing to any metric that attributes to recognition or success of Larry Teis; therefore, I am choosing to forego any donations until he's gone and we see some new leadership in the athletic department". I shit you not, the kid questions "Larry Tenous?" I said no Larry Teis your athletic director.

Good grief :roll:

I like it. Larry Tenuous. Maybe that kid was smarter than you think.

Looks to me like the XFL is serious this time. They hired Oliver Luck as Commissioner of the league and will try again in 2020. I think he is a stand-up guy. He is an example of putting a highly qualified and experienced manager in charge of your program. Should be more professional opportunities for Bobcats. FYL!

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports ... 972306.php

Former Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck, who also directed the Harris County Houston Sports Authority and was the first president of the Houston Dynamo, was announced Tuesday as commissioner and CEO of the XFL, the pro football league that WWE will launch in 2020.

Oliver Luck Q&A: On the XFL, changing football and Houston
He discussed the new position Tuesday with Chronicle staff writer David Barron. Some replies have been edited for length.

Q: Many thought the NCAA would be your destination job. Did you think that was the case and, if so, what changed your mind?
A: I really enjoyed the NCAA. My leaving is not any sign of my discontent with the NCAA. It's really about a tremendous opportunity that doesn't come along very often to work with somebody like (WWE chairman and XFL founder Vince McMahon), a visionary businessman with a very good track record, somebody who really understands entertainment and sports.
Trending Rockets Coverage

Q: What will stand out about XFL football?
A: We're going to take a step back and gather some very smart minds, people who know football and understand it, appreciate it and respect it, but also those who have a different viewpoint, and try to reimagine the game (and) take the traditional constraints that football has – it's a linear television broadcast, it's almost a four-hour game, lots of breaks that people like myself complain about, lack of flow – and take (them) off, whether they are broadcast commercial constraints or whatever, and try to reimagine the game in terms of how it can be presented.
People love football – running, passing, kicking, scoring points and having fourth-down stops – but there is a way to look at the way the game has ... developed and try to reimagine it for a generation that, quite honestly, isn't tuning in as much as we would like to have them tune in. ... Commercial breaks have been a part of football for a long time, but that doesn't need to be the case if there is a model that works without those commercial breaks.

Q: Will elements of show business compete with football to be the center of attention?
A: A lot of what goes in in any sporting event falls into the category of show business or entertainment. But in my discussion with Vince, he acknowledges and recognizes that not enough emphasis during the original XFL was put on the quality of play.
We want to make sure that with the time we have before the 2020 launch, we can be methodical and comprehensive and do a good job of making sure that were on a timeline and a runway to make the game as high quality as it can be. The talent pool is there for that. The coaching pool is there.

Q: Will you compete with the NFL for players?
A: There is a big pool of players we can pull from, and whether we compete with player A or B or C with the NFL, I think is probably it's much too early to tell.
Please note we have no intention of competing with the NFL or against the NFL. I've got a lot of friends in the league. It's a very well-run league and the envy of every sports league around the world. Our goal is not to compete with the league, but we think we've got a solid business plan and passion for the game and that we can create a sustainable, viable, long-term business that football fans will really appreciate. ..
In a sense, everybody in the sports business or the entertainment business competes with everybody else. We complete with sleep.

Q: So we shouldn't expect you, for example, to attempt to sign the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts (his son, Andrew Luck)?
A: I don't think I will be involved with that transaction.

Q: Have you considered having regional team player pools, of assigning college players from a particular region to the XFL team in that area?
A: We've talked about that. That is a possibility ... but we haven't made any final decision. We need to make sure we know first where our markets are going to be, where our eight inaugural franchises will be and then work from there. That's the in the top two or three of my to-do list, but we have talked about the regional concept.

Q: Have you discussed putting a team in Houston and using either NRG Stadium or BBVA Compass Stadium?
A: Compared to 20 years ago, you've got across the country many more facilities that are available. Whether it's a football or soccer (stadium), college facilities ... we'll have plenty of options.
I'm hesitant to talk about any specific city or any specific venue at this point. All we've done at this point is send to 30 cities our proposal that went out last week. The next three to four months will be instructive in the process of narrowing that down to the final eight.

Q: Was Houston one of the 30?
A: I'd rather not discuss any particular city

Q: You face a lot of issues involving player safety, the new gambling rules, player on-field conduct and other things. How much time will be spent on dealing with those issues?
A: Health and safety is of the utmost importance. The American public will not support any professional sport that doesn't have the highest quality of standards for health and safety to protect athletes, particularly when you're talking about brain trauma. That will be front and center.
Vince is on records as saying the quality of the individual is as important as the quality of the player and the athlete in terms of bad behavior and what that may mean for a player's involvement (in the XFL). Sports wagering is an issue as well. Those are issues that will take a good deal of time.

Q: Can the XFL do things better than the NFL or college football is doing them?
A: There is a number of thing the NFL has done extraordinarily well and that college has done extraordinarily well. We are looking at good and not so good things to come up with something we believe will be unique to the XFL.

Q: Will there be a players' union? Are all teams owned by the league?
A: This s a single-entity league. All franchises will be owned and operated by the league. I imagine there won't be a union when we start off in 2020 but I'm hesitant to say anything beyond that.

Q: You have said players will be required to stand and be on the field for the national anthem. Is that correct?
A: Yes.

Q: To what degree do you have autonomy to make football-related decisions and to what degree do you have to consult with Vince McMahon?
A: There is a plethora of talent at WWE. It's a publicly traded company that has been extraordinarily successful, so there is a lot of opportunity for our XFL folks as we staff up to learn from the WWE folks related to marketing and ticket issues and TV production.
In terms of Vince's active role, he wants to be involved in one could called material decisions about the league, but as the chairman and CEO of WWE, a publicly traded company, his priority will remain WWE. He will be involved. He will be someone I will be speaking to and with on a daily basis.

Q: What are some of your ideas to reimagine football?
A: There are a lot of things when I would say to myself, 'I wish we could do that differently.' Instead of complaining about it or muttering about it under my breath, I have an opportunity to put them in place. ... I want to get feedback from many others before I make those issues public.

Q: What did you accomplish during your time at the NCAA?
A: The wheels of progress grind slowly in Indianapolis. In the regulatory space where I was working, it was telling our staff understand that as we deal with all these issues and conflicting and competing constituencies to keep the student-athlete first. We have begun. We're not quite finished, but we have begun to change things within our regulatory space.

Q: How long did you speak with Vince McMahon before taking the job, and were there key issues to be resolved before you signed on?
A: Discussions haven't been for more than a couple of months. As I spent time with Vince and learned about his plans and his vision, his leadership style and what he wanted to accomplish and his mindset on how to capitalize the league, that was very important. A well-capitalized league has a much greater chance of success.

Q: How much will the XFL cost to launch, and can you do it by 2020?
A: We will be in a position to launch in 2020 with eight franchises. Given my experience with NFL Europe and MLS and getting the Dynamo launched, I think these are solid budget and business plans. There is a significant capital commitment that Vince has made. ...
Going to NFL Europe as a 30-year-old, I didn't have a good sense of how difficult it would be to get the Frankfurt Galaxy and the Rhein Fire going and to run the entire league. That was a challenge. There is a past history of leagues (failing), and we have to buck that trend. It's hard to say whether it will be bigger or more challenging. I can't rank them.

Q: Do you have a guaranteed number of years the XFL will be in business?
A: All our business plans are multi-year. They go well into the 2020s. I think that the planning and the approach to all of this will be very much long term. ... This is going to take time. As long as we're plugging away and doing the right thing and working hard, working smart, I think we have an opportunity to build a very sustainable business.

I see that you don't know much about Ollie Luck. Everything Luck touches turns to shit:


Began his WVU career under coach Frank Cignetti.
Frank Cignetti fired.

Played four seasons of WVU Mountaineer Football.
'eers had a losing record in those four years.

Quarterbacked the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Threw more interceptions than touchdowns.

Drafted by the Houston Oilers.
Houston Oilers never recovered and no longer exist.

Quarterbacked in the Astrodome.
Astrodome never recovered and is now a vacant tombstone.

Ran for Congress in West Virginia's Second District.
Soundly defeated in spite of ethics violations that involved the Mountaineer Athletics Club and Second District seat was eliminated following redistricting.

General Manager of Frankfurt Galaxy.
Frankfurt Galaxy never recovered and no longer exist.

General Manager of Rhein Fire.
Rhein Fire never recovered and no longer exists.

President of World League of American Football/NFL Europe.
League never recovered and no longer exists.

CEO of Houston Sports Authority managing operation of Enron Field.
Enron no longer exists and Houston Sports Authority paid the defunct company $2 million to regain naming rights.

President of Houston Dynamo, a Major League Soccer team.
Luck changed the name of the team from the Houston 1836, named after Texas Independence, to the Houston Dynamo, named after the Soviet KGB.

Member of Board of Governors of West Virginia University.
Loved the school so much he sent his children to Stanford.

Athletic Director at West Virginia University, a Big East member school.
Big East never recovered and no longer exists.

Athletic Director at West Virginia University.
Football team placed on two years probation. NCAA penalized WVU's "failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance."

Fired Bill Stewart.
Bill Stewart died shortly thereafter.

Hired Dana Holgorsen.
Holgorsen became an embarrassing drunk who has a far worse record than Stewart ever did. Holgorsen got kicked out of a casino for being a belligerent drunk, deserted his wife and children, and in seven years has only had his team ranked in the top 25 twice.

Hired Bob Huggins.
Huggins is an embarrassing drunk who vomits inside police cars and gets arrested for DUIs.

Began beer sales at football games.
Drunken Mountaineer fans assaulted an expecting mother in town supporting LSU.

Cancelled football series with Marshall.
In the first season after the Coal Bowl ended, the Mountaineers didn't sell out a single football game.

Third-tier media rights.
"Blatant and unlawful actions" transformed the "process into a sham." Subjected West Virginia University to a multi-million dollar lawsuit and cost the school millions when the rights had to be re-bid.

Interviewed for A.D. job at Texas. Luck used road trip at TCU to interview with the Longhorns the week before the Mountaineers played Texas. After using him as a distraction, Texas dumped him and hired the guy they really wanted. West Virginia didn't win another game that season.

College Football Playoff Selection Committee.
Represented the Big 12 on the Committee. The Big 12 was the only P5 conference not to have a team selected to the playoff.

Accepts high position at NCAA.
NCAA's football and basketball attendance and television viewership is spiraling down.

Dated the girl on the left; after marrying her, she now is the woman on the right.

All the Trolls, on BobcatFans.com.
Are tired of losing to all of these sorry ass schools,
And people laughing at our name.
So if you are reading, Bobcatfans.com,
It don’t matter if anybody said it before,
BobcatFans is a bullshit game.

Trying to be a hero, winding up a zero,
Can harm a man forever, right down to his soul,
Bobcats in the spotlight, heading for the headlights,
Because anything that glitters, is not gold.

FYL!

It is not named after that. Dynamo means energy and Houston is a major player in the energy market. The also won two Cups and have sucked since he left. I would love to hire Luck for AD.

Wrong. The name was selected due to the Houston franchise in the United States Soccer League in the '80s being the "Houston Dynamo." "Dynamo" is an historic soccer team name in Eastern Europe and the former USSR based off of the KGB. That - the historic soccer name in those regions - is how the original Houston Dynamo got their name and why the current team adopted it.

Yes, they won two cups . . . back when MLS had about ten other teams. They now have nearly twenty-five. Luck left the Dynamo in the middle of the 2010 season. The Dynamo didn't qualify for the playoffs that year. The following season after Luck left, they went to the cup championship. The year after that? They again went to the cup championship. The year after that? They went to the semifinals.

In other words, Luck left them in the middle of the worst season they had ever had after he ran them into the ground (surely, even you can see the pattern now). Then, in the following three years, they went to the championship twice and the semis. Tell us again how they have sucked since he left even though they had their best three year playoff run immediately after he left during their worst year.

Want more? Andrew Luck's first three years starting for the Indianapolis Colts were in 2012-2014. In those years, he threw for 4400 yards, 3800 yards, and 4800 yards. In January 2015, Oliver Luck accepted the NCAA position and moved to the same city as his son (Indianapolis), where they had dinner with each other once a week. How did Andrew do once Oliver moved into town? He went out and threw for 1800 yards in 2015 (after averaging well over 4000/season before then) and then didn't even play last year.

Now that Ollie is out of town, look for a big season from Andrew.

Everything Oliver Luck touches turns to shit.
