DENTON – The Mean Green Scholarship Fund has announced the release of the UNiTe Initiative. The UNiTe Initiative is a 5-year strategic plan to achieve 5,000 MGSF members and raise $5,000,000 annually by 2026.
The goal of the Mean Green Scholarship Fund is to help offset the annual cost of student-athlete scholarships in an effort to allow the North Texas athletic department to use those funds to improve the overall experience for UNT student-athletes in other areas such as facilities, equipment, nutrition, and travel.
The support of over 1,000 MGSF donors currently assists more than 350 UNT student-athletes cover some of the costs associated with attending the University of North Texas. This support is critical in order to provide student-athletes with the necessary resources to compete nationally and within Conference USA. In 2020, North Texas Athletics' expense for student-athlete scholarships reached more than $6.3 million.
Please consider making a gift to the Mean Green Scholarship Fund today and help UNT to UNiTe North Texas.

Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale has placed another exorbitant gamble on a Houston sports team. This time, it's $1 million on the Houston Cougars winning the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
The odds of the furniture owner's wager sat at 9-1 odds, meaning he would win $9 million if the hometown program can come through for him. He made the gamble with DraftKings, and the organization says that it's one of the largest March Madness bets on record.
"Anything can happen in March Madness as we all know, but I'm ten toes down on Houston to bring the national title to Texas, and willing to stake a million dollars with DraftKings on that outcome," said McIngvale, per KPRC 2.

Steve Austin and Joel McHale Swap College Football Stories in 'Straight Up Steve Austin' Exclusive ClipBy meangreen11
Austin went on to say it takes a "special-breed cat" that goes the walk-on route because you have to love the sport. He then asked McHale what made him want to walk-on at Washington. "It was more like to see if I could do it," McHale, 49, added. "The second year, I got the hang of it. I feel like I did. I came to a crossroads where I'm like, what's the end goal? I was having a great time, but I really need to kind of focus on acting. And that's why I became one of the biggest movie stars in the history of Hollywood."
Austin didn't dive into too much of the details of his college football history, but the WWE Hall of Famer played at the University of North Texas “It was a fun experience,” Austin said on The DA Show back in January. “I had dreams of being a pro football player but just couldn’t quite make the grade by a long-shot on that. I was a good player at the local or regional level. Beyond that, those guys had too much talent." Austin played linebacker and defensive end while at North Texas. He was a running back in high school.
