Not true.
Absolutely true.

If that wasn't the case for you, pm me and I'm glad to help find out exactly why not.

In times past when I've held feet to fire they've provided emails, phone call times and durations etc, mostly I assume to get me to stop being such a smartass.

All I'm saying is that if you are under the impression that efforts were made to reach out to long-time ticket holders who chose not to participate in the reseat fiasco, that certainly did not happen to me.

He's giving you an opportunity to find out why. Provide your info. If SMU messed up I'm sure like would like to find out why and remedy.

My two cents.
After the re-seat... that I did not participate in... I was called by a young man in ticket office and offered to buy tickets if I wanted. He promptly sent me a seating chart showing what was open. This was open without increasing my Mustang Club dues. (I'm like 7-8 hundred range)

Bottom line I bought two seats on 4th row.

FYI, my last seats were three rows from the ceiling.

Hope the team is coming together. See you all Saturday at 7!!!

Go Mustangs

I was wondering if we are going to do anything to honor him at the game.

Nope. In fact, it was good to hear from some that also posted on this thread and some that just read the thread without posting.

Categorized however you want, total athletics giving was 24.5 million last year. A record for athletics by millions, surpassing even the last year of the second century campaign. Also, approximately 25% of all donations made to the university last year were athletics.

Separate from the 24.5 million number is 3.6 million in capital campaign projects.

Current-use giving (what's always been known as the "Mustang Club" number was just over 6 million. Previous high was 5 million.

These numbers are in the donor guide on page 20. There are no smoke and mirrors...it's clearly spelled out what comprises the 24 and what comprises the 6. As far as "far more information than SMU would ever provide publicly," the information quoted above and on that page are straight from the reports presented to the BoT's and reported to same by yours truly. I didnt get a "behind closed doors only" version to go along with the "public" version.



A couple of other things:
Credit to Section F, as that's exactly how the process worked. At no point did anyone say "yep, we'll guarantee that if you'll pay this much more." The process was the same for everyone. If the AD played fast and loose and "let's make a deal" by saying yep, 50% more makes it happen, that wouldve absolutely been shady. Ranked all the donors by gift amount, highest picked first, all the way down. Leading up to that, town halls, in-person meetings, phone calls, etc etc etc. I probably couldve given less. May have been able to improve by giving more. Stayed where I did giving wise and stayed where I did seating wise. Same decision everyone else had.





Blah , blah , blah.............bottom line is still the same......$$$$ is all SMU cares about.....my 30 plus years as a FB
season ticket holder and Mustang Club member; and 10 plus as a BB sth means nada to the boys in charge ! So I will
still love and support SMU , but will no longer allow myself to be pissed on ! MC Club and athletic admin. please note
the mistletoe pinned to my coattails !!

When SMU adopted “ pony up” as its proud suggestion,all of us should have realized what was meant..for now, I would like to see SMU take its turn and “pony up”...
