I'm curious how many of these guys besides RP are contributors to this board.

Can I help persuade you to consider moving back to white tee shirts or a brighter shade of green for next year?

A.) That would be an 0-3. However, Tim is known to get on sparingly if we have certain large issues. To be honest, the O Zone exec and BobcatAttack have stood at odd on a lot of things in the past, and it is a relationship I, for one, would love to foster.

B.) Shirts have already been decided, I believe, but there will be a way to tell us apart from the general student attendees. However, it's a bit of a surprise, so we've not been informed yet.

How can you not have been informed? It's YOUR shirt, it should be YOUR decision.

RP must be a political science major is only way I can figure that (since he is the Treasurer)

I am going to keep on the message boards for the upcoming year. To help out on the questions from what we were told forest green is the color of the T-shirts, we have put in numerous design ideas out there we are just waiting to see now.

Who's pulling the strings now? When I was there we always got to call our own shots on the shirts. That's a shame if true.

Well, the meeting was basically that we came up with a flurry of shirt ideas (some good, some meh). Now we wait and see which ones marketing approves and gets along with, and then the final choice is made.

Marketing took a lot of power out of the board's hands shortly after we left- and the board didn't do anything to fight it. I think if the new leadership was aware of how much ability we had to make decisions, they'd want that same power.

I think based of our school colors (White and Forest Green) the school would like to keep it between those two colors and white is not the best option

Hunter green, not forest.

Yes. When we were officers, our role was to come up with ideas and the marketing office told us what to expect with costs and logistics, before giving us the final say. For example:

O Zone exec: We want to take a 10 hour round trip busride to Virginia Tech for our game against the Hokies. How much can the O Zone membership fees subsidize that trip while still leaving enough for other activities later in the year?

Marketing: With bus costs and tickets, We may want to charge about $30 for O Zone members to go.

O Zone exec: Doesn't sound too bad. Let's do it.

The only time I remember being told "no" by marketing was when the owner of Red Brick approached me about hosting pregame parties in their basement bar for O Zone members, and we could not promote that since Red Brick was not a sponsor of Ohio athletics.

Maybe they need to recruit the Student Senate president to sit on the board. She seems to get things done.
