  1. I know that this is the line the athletics department is pushing. I'm not sure I buy it. The bottom line is that when the current administration moves on to greener pastures, we North Texas fans will still be here. It is our responsibility to take ownership and advocate for the type of program or programs we want to have. MGBP is doing just that. An advocacy group to bring back baseball. No more, no less.
  2. That is not at all what the MGBP stands for. We want ALL North Texas Athletics programs to be successful.
  3. Great question. The 50,000 is the first goal of our capital campaign. We hope to accomplish this first step by the beginning of the year. This will allow us to to generate media, and grow our army of supporters. As Doug addressed, we understand the long term realities of adding additional sports and the cost associated. We are not unrealistic about the financial obstacles that face this project. One foot in front of the other until the goal is accomplished.
  4. We would love to have your support. See you at the homecoming tailgate on November 5th. https://www.gofundme.com/f/mean-green-baseball-project?qid=4f4a7914e4672e57915f88db29b5ea12
  5. The Mean Green Baseball Project is off to a tremendous start. Made up of a collection of former North Texas baseball players, this group is determined to bring baseball back to campus. Formed as an advocacy group, MGBP will be raising funds and spending money to make others aware of the need to Bring It Back! If you have a few dollars to spare, please consider supporting this endeavor. https://www.gofundme.com/f/mean-green-baseball-project?qid=206175d5e8415dc2f30e6c258500cc39
  6. This helmet looks like what the Argyle Eagles wear (green version). Amateurish.
  7. They are irrelevant. They were left behind in the Realignment Rapture!
  8. The group that is forming are reasonable. They know baseball will be back on campus immediately and that it will take time to cultivate donors and have the necessary resources to cure the problems of the past. What they are not willing to do is remain stagnant. For over thirty years people that have advocated for baseball have been told to be patient and someday baseball will return. The days of waiting are over.
  9. Baseball is coming! There are a lot of alumni/donors that are sick and tired of waiting. Organization of a group dedicated to bringing baseball back to UNT is currently being formed, and will grow grass roots involvement along with the necessary funds to make baseball an attractive option to the athletic department, president and Board of Regents.
  10. Agree 100 percent. To have mens track and not baseball is a travesty.
  11. The groups primary focus is to build a grassroots following that will translate into financial support and reinstatement of the program. Mean Green Baseball project is not affiliated with the University, but is open to dialogue with the athletics department.
  12. Baseball will be on campus in five years and it will be a program built from the ground up from dedicated donors that are willing to work their asses off to make it happen. The collective that is forming to lead this initiative will be substantial and will raise money. Sit back and watch.
  13. Wait. Villareal did build the stadium. No credibility in this statement.
  14. Probably will not be break even. But it is certainly not the sunk cost that most college baseball programs where ten years ago. There is a new day coming.
  15. Check the financial data, primarily TV money, in 2019 as compared to 2022. College baseball at the division 1 level is exploding and so is the revenue.
