I know Bloomgren is a tech fan and our dean of engineering is a big sports fan, why don’t we have the engineering school have a project where we work closely with Google/Samsung/Facebook and develop a better platform for broadcasting sports for VR. As part of the deal they preload our content into their VR store. There’s something to be said for availability. How many people became Braves fans because they could watch them every night on TBS? I know they can do it already, so why not invest a couple hundred thousand dollars and make our content the only VR sports readily available (and improve it).

Strivr might even want to be a 3rd partner for it.

Get the athletic department on the phone, we've found their next hire!

If this student body in any way resembles the Rice I knew, then there is a wealth of creativity waiting to be tapped. Much more could be said about this....perhaps another thread if anyone was interested.

The athletic department can’t do anything to help the MOB’s enrollment. They are too far on the weird end of the social spectrum even for the Rice student body these days.

Glad you brought this up, because my use of the word "MOB" was really intended to be short-hand for "student-directed gametime activities and music".
In fact, I agree that the idea of the odd-ball scatterband is probably passe.
We can still be at the forefront of new, hip, quircky/nerdy ideas in this arena, and the Athletic Department can mostly definitely be involved in stimulating this initiative.

Agree. The MOB has taken a very quirky/silly turn over the last ten years or so. It doesn't appeal to enough of the student body anymore. It's a shame. There must be hundreds of students on campus who play musical instruments. I mentioned this in the survey.

agree with the turn. but it has been a bit better the last year or two from the worst of 3 to 6 yrs ago. But it may be too late.
