North Texas Mean Green

Intercollegiate athletics program of the University of North Texas

"Mean Green" redirects here. For the compilation album by No Limit Records, see Mean Green (album).

North Texas Mean Green (formerly North Texas Eagles) represents the University of North Texas (UNT) in intercollegiate athletics. The teams compete in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). North Texas competed in the Sun Belt Conference until joining Conference USA (C-USA) on July 1, UNT's official school colors are green, white and black. North Texas' mascot is an eagle named Scrappy.

Nickname[edit]

The name "Mean Green" was adopted by fans and media in for a North Texas football defensive squad that finished the season second in the nation against the rush.[2] That school year, Joe Greene,[3] then a sophomore at North Texas, played left defensive tackle on the football team and competed in track and field (shot put). There are conflicting accounts for the origin of the nickname. Two possible origins are two separate cheers that supposedly developed during North Texas' game against UTEP. One cheer was by Sidney Sue Graham, wife of the North Texas sports information director. In response to a tackle by Greene, she blurted out, "That’s the way, Mean Greene!"[4] However, Bill Mercer, former North Texas play-by-play announcer, states Graham's thought behind the nickname was the Mean Green defense.[5] Her husband began including the nickname for the team in press releases and it caught on with the media. Meanwhile, in the student section, North Texas basketball players Willie Davis and Ira Daniels, unsatisfied with the unenthusiastic crowd, began to chant "Mean Green, you look so good to me."[6] The rest of the crowd soon followed. "After that we did it every game," Davis says. "A lot of people later on started associating it with Joe because his last name was Greene, but it actually started with that simple chant that Saturday night at Fouts Field. And that's the truth."[4] By , "Mean Green" was on the back of shirts, buttons, bumper stickers, and the cover of the North Texas football brochure. Even the band became identified as the "Mean Green Marching Machine."[7]

A member of Conference USA, North Texas sponsors teams in six men's and ten women's NCAA sanctioned sports.

Baseball[edit]

In , the university fielded a varsity baseball team until it was discontinued after the season because of the newly enacted Title IX requiring an equal number of female players to male players.[8] The team competed as a member of the Southland Conference.[9] After starting the program's inaugural season with a 0–19 record, the Eagles won their first game against the Emporia State Hornets, 4–1.[10] The team played their home games at Mack Park in Denton.[10]

The university had planned to revive the program and build an on-campus ballpark. The ballpark would have been home field of both the Mean Green, and Denton Outlaws. The program's revival failed to happen and the Denton Outlaws disbanded after the season.[11]

The UNT fiscal budget included $, in start up costs for reviving the Mean Green baseball program. The university plans to construct a new on campus ballpark within the Mean Green Village.[12] Decade long accounting errors by the UNT System have led to the baseball program to be placed on hold indefinitely. The earliest the program could have been revived was in time for the season, dependent on the facilities' construction beginning in early ,[11] but that has yet to happen.

Alumni[edit]

Golf
The era of collegiate prominence in Texas golf began with North Texas winning four consecutive NCAA Division I Championships from to Intercollegiate golf had until then been dominated by the Ivy League, which—since when intercollegiate golf began—had won 36 national titles. North Texas students Don January, who later won the PGA Championship, and U.S. Amateur champion Billy Maxwell, were members of the team. Fred Cobb (–), the coach, launched the team in [18]Sixty-nine years since winning its fourth consecutive Championship, only one other team in the nation—the Houston Cougars—has surpassed four consecutive titles. In the year history of intercollegiate golf, North Texas is one of only nine with more than one national title.[19]

Football
On September 1, , Abner Haynes and his high school classmate Leon A. King (born ), became the first African American students to participate on the North Texas football team.[20] In the larger picture, Haynes and King were the first to break the color barrier for intercollegiate sports in Texas—seven years before anyone was authorized to break it at a Southwest Conference school.[21] Haynes quickly became an offensive and defensive star on the team. Despite his athletic leadership and fan popularity, Haynes experienced painful encounters with Jim Crow—including not being allowed to live on campus. Perhaps the worst was when Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Chattanooga discontinued scheduling North Texas after , citing state laws. Haynes went on to play with the Dallas Texans (–), earning the American Football League MVP in , and continued playing when the team became the Kansas City Chiefs (–). Then he played for the Denver Broncos (–), the Miami Dolphins (), and the New York Jets. Haynes is in the Halls of Fame of North Texas (), Kansas City Chiefs (), and Texas Sports (). Haynes, who now lives in Denton, is one of a few athletes who was able to play high school, college, and professional football in North Texas.

Mean Joe Greene, in , was selected as a College Football Consensus All American, the only alumnus in the year history of football at North Texas to win the honor. He went on to the Pittsburgh Steelers where he anchored the Steel Curtain defense that led Pittsburgh to four Super Bowl titles. In , North Texas inducted Greene as a Distinguished Alumnus, an honor bestowed only to twenty-nine others during the then ten-year history of the award. On August 1, , Governor Mark White appointed Greene to the Board of Regents of North Texas, making him the first African American to serve as a regent of any Texas state university.[22] In , Greene was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the only alumnus ever to become a member. In , he was named to the North Texas Hall of Fame.

UNT Athletic Director Talks Future Of Mean Green Program Following 4 Years Of Success

DENTON, Texas (mynewextsetup.us) – The last four years have been some of the most successful for the University of North Texas athletics department.

The Mean Green have combined for the highest winning percentage in all sports in forty years. UNT student athletes have wrapped up four consecutive years of academic success.

This has resulted in the Mean Green bringing in the green. The North Texas athletic department had its best four years of fundraising ever.

It’s no coincidence that those results coincide with the day — July 29, — that Wren Baker arrived on campus as the UNT director of athletics.

Baker is still a month shy of celebrating his fourth anniversary at UNT.

But, this is no time for celebrations.

Across the country, athletic departments are trying to figure out safe ways to bring back student athletes to campus in the wake of the coronavirus.

North Texas had three football players test positive for the virus during the first phase of bringing back student athletes on campus for voluntary training.

Equally as important to Baker is leading the way for the student athletes in his program to right the wrongs of social injustice.

Five years ago, as the deputy athletic director at the University of Missouri, Baker witnessed first hand as Missouri football players walked out during the season following several racial incidents on campus.

“It’s amazing, the power that comes from hearing, listening and learning,” Baker told CBS 11 Sports. “Putting yourself in someone else’s place. I think so many people in our country are just ignorant… and I don’t mean that in an insulting way. They just don’t know the experience.”

“We all of a role to play,” Baker continued about how he is addressing the issue within his program. “Those of us, who are leaders, regardless of color, cannot ignore the problems that we have anymore. We’ve got to learn, listen and be willing to take action steps, and be bold in leadership. That’s what our student athletes are hungry for, they’re asking for it.”

Baker says locker rooms provide the best examples of how the country can be it’s very best.

LIGHT THE TOWER

The Light The Tower Master Plan

The Light The Tower Master Plan for Mean Green athletics facilities is a realistic, actionable blueprint that integrates athletics into the UNT campus through coordination with the Campus Master Plan Update and current campus improvements. The plan emphasizes the importance of the I corridor and its proximity to the athletics precinct to advertise and enhance the University of North Texas brand. Lastly, we want to provide the facilities to accommodate hosting Conference and NCAA championships as an additional means of promoting UNT nationally.

The Master Plan has been segmented into short-term and future projects based on anticipated needs and sequencing to achieve our end result. It is important to note that ongoing evaluations will occur that could impact prioritization of projects along with donor interest, which will be essential to completion of the Master Plan.

Short-Term projects consist of:

  • a soccer and track venue near the Waranch Tennis Complex
  • an indoor practice facility located next to the Athletic Center and Victory Hall
  • an expansion of the Athletic Center that includes relocation of the academic and student-athlete services center, expansion of facilities for sports medicine, strength and conditioning, administrative and coaches offices, and the football locker room and equipment room
  • relocation of Apogee Stadium's scoreboards, adding four corner video boards and removing the south end zone video board to free up space for the Athletic Center expansion and future Apogee seating additions

Subsequent proposed projects would include an arena for basketball and volleyball, a stadium for baseball, a natatorium, an indoor tennis facility, a new and reoriented softball stadium, a relocated soccer practice field and a tailgating park across from Apogee Stadium.

All the facilities will be located in the Mean Green Village, the area south of IE on either side of South Bonnie Brae Street and north of Willowwood Street.

Watch the video below for an overview of the Light The Tower Master Plan.

Short-Term Projects

The Light The Tower Master Plan began with construction of the new soccer and track & field venue, which is slated for completion in , followed by the indoor practice facility and an expansion of the Athletic Center.

Soccer and Track & Field venue

Track & field will leave Fouts Field and soccer will have a stadium befitting the winningest program at North Texas.

Indoor Practice Facility

A 98,square-foot, high-roofed facility with full-size football field, running lanes, sand pit, filming platforms and a visitor/recruit lounge.

Learn More &#;

Athletic Center

Will include updated locker rooms, larger sports medicine and strength and conditioning facilities, and a new academic center.

Learn More &#;

Future Projects

Tailgate park

Located across Bonnie Brae from Apogee Stadium, it will have a minimum of spaces initially and be expanded with an additional + spaces in coordination with other future projects. There will be restrooms, concessions and a centrally located turf area that can accommodate concerts and other game-day activities.

New Basketball Arena

A 6,, seat arena for basketball, with lower-bowl and upper-deck seating. There will be premium club, loge and suite seating. The facility will include two basketball practice courts and a volleyball facility with 1, retractable seats.

Baseball Stadium

A state-of-the-art stadium for a potential new baseball program. The stadium will include a locker room, training room, coaches' offices, pitching tunnels and batting cages.

Softball Stadium

Tennis Indoor Facility

Various options are under consideration, but the pre-engineered facility will accommodate a minimum of three indoor courts.

Natatorium

A new swimming and diving facility will have an eight-lane meter pool that can be converted to a meter pool, plus a full-platform diving well.

Old-school: Texas to face Sam Houston State for first game at Gregory Gym in 44 years


For those no longer on campus, Texas-Sam Houston State game on LHN; Party starts at p.m., game at p.m.

Think the Erwin Center is bad? Texas’ first basketball gymnasium, a rickety structure built in , burned to the ground. School officials were relieved that Sunday morning in March The firetrap was gone.

As it turned out, the gym fire boosted a fundraising project started by former U.S. Attorney General T.W. Gregory, one of the university’s first 13 graduates.

Gregory Gym opened in at the estimated cost of $, Texas knocked off North Texas in the first men’s basketball game there on Dec. 5, The Horns played at Gregory until , when the Erwin Center opened. 

On Monday, the Horns are going back in time for the first game at Gregory in 44 years. Texas () will play Sam Houston State () in a throwback game to which only UT students are invited.

Preview: No. 8 Texas vs. Sam Houston State: How to watch, series record, lineups

“Just so many reasons why to do it,” UT coach Chris Beard said. “I think it’s going to be awesome.”

Monday’s game is part of Beard’s aggressive outreach to get students excited about men’s basketball. He has total belief that Texas can’t have an intimidating home game atmosphere — be it at the Erwin Center or the Moody Center next season — without a raucous student section. He wants students heavily involved. 

Give the coach credit: Beard is going far beyond anything previous coaches ever did to get UT students excited about basketball.

Starting at p.m. Monday, the men’s basketball program will host a party at the UT Tower to thank students for coming to the season opener against Houston Baptist. The party will run until 6 p.m.

“Just like all parties in my day, you’d kind of come to a party kind of casually late. Same consistency here in Same situation,” Beard said. 

“Beverages. Let you kind of print that however you want,” he added. “Music. Stuff for the students. Giveaways. Free food. Entertainment. Myself, some of the coaches and some of the players will be at the party before the game. It’s that important to us.”

Then after 6, students will be guided down East 21st Street to Gregory Gym. Students with a valid UT ID will get a wristband for free entry into Gregory. The first 2, students will receive a retro Texas basketball shirt and free Stubb’s barbecue.

“I really hope all the students come out to our game at Gregory,” guard Andrew Jones said, looking directly into a bank of TV cameras. “It's going to be our first time playing a true game there in a while, and we really need y'all's support.”

Beard even has a plan for anybody who wants to camp out at Gregory. Those at the front of the line can get a wristband, go to the party at the Tower and not lose their spots in line, he said.

On the face of it, how can this be anything but incredible? Gregory Gym’s basketball configuration holds 3, fans. It should be packed tight down the lines, and as anyone who attends UT volleyball games knows, it gets awfully loud in there. 

Behind the scenes, Texas athletics had the usual red-tape scheduling battles with the UT campus. Technically, Gregory Gym is controlled by campus administrators and not the athletic department. 

NCAA Division I basketball games have specific rules. The floor requires special taping to mask some of the volleyball lines. The two baskets coming from the Erwin Center must be totally disassembled since there’s no door big enough to squeeze them through.

“All the throwback games have challenges,” said Beard, who has organized games like this at his previous schools. “One year we didn’t have running water in the locker room. The officials, they’re not going to get their five-star-plus accommodations they’re used to around here. You know, we’re taking basketball back. 

“It’s going to be more like ‘Hoosiers’ than it’s going to be an NBA arena,” he said.

This game was purposely excluded from the season ticket package since it would be held at Gregory for students. It will be televised on the Longhorn Network for everybody else. And yes, it counts on a team’s win-loss record like any other game.

Texas was in games at Gregory from to The last UT men’s game played there was a loss to Baylor in the first round of the Southwest Conference Tournament. 

“I appreciate the season-ticket holders and people’s understanding,” Beard said. “Everybody won’t be able to get into this game, obviously. But I think everybody will be able to feed on the excitement of this.”

In Beard’s mind, this is the first of many student-only games to come, even when UT moves into the Moody Center next season.

“We’re proud to put this on the floor of the first year,” Beard said, “and hopefully that people appreciate all the work that went into putting this game on.”

LIGHT THE TOWER

The Light The Tower Master Plan

The Light The Tower Master Plan for Mean Green athletics facilities is a realistic, actionable blueprint that integrates athletics into the UNT campus through coordination with the Campus Master Plan Update and current campus improvements. The plan emphasizes the importance of the I corridor and its proximity to the athletics precinct to advertise and enhance the University of North Texas brand. Lastly, we want to provide the facilities to accommodate hosting Conference and NCAA championships as an additional means of promoting UNT nationally.

The Master Plan has been segmented into short-term and future projects based on anticipated needs and sequencing to achieve our end result.

  • relocation of Apogee University of north texas athletics scoreboards, adding four corner video boards and removing the south end zone video board to free up space for the Athletic Center expansion and future Apogee seating additions

Subsequent proposed projects would include an arena for basketball and volleyball, a stadium for baseball, a natatorium, an indoor tennis facility, a new and reoriented softball stadium, a relocated soccer practice field and a tailgating park across from Apogee Stadium.

All the facilities will be located in the Mean Green Village, the area south of IE on either side of South Bonnie Brae Street and north of Willowwood Street.

Old-school: Texas to face Sam Houston State for first game at Gregory Gym in 44 years


For those no longer on campus, Texas-Sam Houston State game on LHN; Party starts at p.m., game at p.m.

Think the Erwin Center is bad? Texas’ first basketball gymnasium, a rickety structure built inburned to the ground. School officials were relieved that Sunday morning in March The firetrap was gone.

As it turned out, the gym fire boosted a fundraising project started by former U.S. Attorney General T.W. Gregory, one of the university’s first 13 graduates.

Gregory Gym opened in at the estimated cost of $, Texas knocked off North Texas in the first men’s basketball game there on Dec. 5, The Horns played at Gregory untilwhen the Erwin Center opened. 

On Monday, the Horns are going back in time for the first game at Gregory in 44 years. Texas () will play Sam Houston State () in a throwback game to which only UT students are invited.

Preview: No. 8 Texas vs. Sam Houston State: How to watch, series record, lineups

“Just so many reasons why to do it,” UT coach Chris Beard said. “I think it’s going to be awesome.”

Monday’s game is part of Beard’s aggressive outreach to get students excited about men’s basketball. He has total belief that Texas can’t have an intimidating home game atmosphere — be it at the Erwin Center or the Moody Center next season — without a university of north texas athletics student section. He wants students heavily involved. 

Give the coach credit: Beard is going far beyond anything previous coaches ever did to get UT students excited about basketball.

Starting at p.m. Monday, the men’s basketball program will host a party at the UT Tower to thank students for coming to the season opener against Houston Baptist. The party will run until 6 p.m.

“Just like all parties in my day, you’d kind of come to a party kind of casually late. Same consistency here in Same situation,” Beard said. 

“Beverages. Let you kind of print that however you want,” he added. “Music. Stuff for the students. Giveaways. Free food. Entertainment. Myself, some of the coaches and some of the players will be at the party before the game. It’s that important to us.”

More:All the new players are great, but Andrew Jones, Courtney Ramey still battling for Horns

Then after 6, students will be guided down East 21st Street to Gregory Gym. Students with a valid UT ID will get a wristband for free entry into Gregory. The first 2, students will receive a retro Texas basketball shirt and free Stubb’s barbecue.

“I really hope all the students come out to our game at Gregory,” guard Andrew Jones said, looking directly into a bank of TV cameras. “It's going to be our first time playing a true game there in a while, and we really need y'all's support.”

Beard even has a plan for anybody who wants to camp out at Gregory. Those at the front of the line can get a wristband, go to the party at the Tower and not lose their spots in line, he said.

On the face of it, how can this be anything but incredible? Gregory Gym’s basketball configuration holds 3, fans. It should be packed tight down the lines, and as anyone who attends UT volleyball games knows, it gets awfully loud in there. 

Behind the scenes, Texas athletics had the usual red-tape scheduling battles with the UT campus. Technically, Gregory Gym is controlled by campus administrators and not the athletic department. 

NCAA Division I basketball games have specific rules. The floor requires special taping to mask some of the volleyball lines. The two baskets coming from the Erwin Center must be totally disassembled since there’s no door big enough to squeeze them through.

“All the throwback games have challenges,” said Beard, who has organized games like this at his previous schools. “One year we didn’t have running water in the locker room. The officials, they’re not going to get their five-star-plus accommodations they’re used to around here. You know, we’re taking basketball back. 

“It’s going to be more like ‘Hoosiers’ than it’s going to be an NBA arena,” he said.

This game was walmart eye center mexico mo excluded from the season ticket package since it would be held at Gregory for students. It will be televised on the Longhorn Network for everybody else. And yes, it counts on a team’s win-loss record like any other game.

Texas was in games at Gregory from to The last UT men’s game played there was a loss to Baylor in the first round of the Southwest Conference Tournament. 

“I appreciate the season-ticket holders and people’s understanding,” Beard said. “Everybody won’t be able to get into this game, obviously. But I think everybody will be able to feed on the excitement of this.”

In Beard’s mind, this is the first of many student-only games to come, even when UT moves into the Moody Center next season.

“We’re proud to put this on the floor of the first year,” Beard said, “and hopefully that people appreciate all the work that went into putting this game on.”

North Texas Mean Green

Intercollegiate athletics program of the University of North Texas

"Mean Green" redirects here. For the compilation album by No Limit Records, see Mean Green (album).

North Texas Mean Green (formerly North Texas Eagles) represents the University of North Texas (UNT) in intercollegiate athletics. The teams compete in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). North Texas competed in the Sun Belt Conference until joining Conference USA (C-USA) on July 1, UNT's official school colors are green, white and black. North Texas' mascot is an eagle named Scrappy.

Nickname[edit]

The name "Mean Green" was adopted by fans and media in for a North Texas football defensive squad that finished the season second in the nation against the rush.[2] That school year, Joe Greene,[3] then a sophomore at North Texas, played left defensive tackle on the football team and competed in track and field (shot put). There are conflicting accounts for the origin of the nickname. Two possible origins are two separate cheers that supposedly developed during North Texas' game against UTEP. One cheer was by Sidney Sue Graham, wife of the North Texas sports information director. In response to a tackle by Greene, she blurted out, "That’s the way, Mean Greene!"[4] However, Bill Mercer, former North Texas play-by-play announcer, states Graham's thought behind the nickname was the Mean Green defense.[5] Her husband began including the nickname for the team in press releases and it caught on with the media. Meanwhile, in the student section, North Texas basketball players Willie Davis and Ira Daniels, unsatisfied with the unenthusiastic crowd, began to chant "Mean Green, you look so good to me."[6] The rest of the crowd soon followed. "After that we did it every game," Davis says. "A lot of people later on started associating it with Joe because his last name was Greene, but it actually started with that simple chant that Saturday night at Fouts Field. And that's the truth."[4] By"Mean Green" was on the back of shirts, buttons, bumper stickers, and the cover of the North Texas football brochure. Even the band became identified as the "Mean Green Marching Machine."[7]

Baseball[edit]

Inthe university fielded a varsity baseball team until it was discontinued after the season because of the newly enacted Title IX requiring an equal number of female players to male players.[8] The team competed as a member of the Southland Conference.[9] After starting the program's inaugural season with a 0–19 record, the Eagles won their first game against the Emporia State Hornets, 4–1.[10] The team played their home games at Mack Park in Denton.[10]

The university had planned to revive the program and build an on-campus ballpark. The ballpark would have been home index of thank you for smoking of both the Mean Green, and Denton Outlaws. The program's revival failed to happen and the Denton Outlaws disbanded after the season.[11]

The UNT fiscal budget included $, in start up costs for reviving the Mean Green baseball program. The university plans to construct a new homes for sale in montevilla jacksonville fl zillow campus ballpark within the Mean Green Village.[12] Decade long accounting errors by the UNT System have led to the baseball program to be placed on hold indefinitely. The earliest the program could have been revived was in time for the season, dependent on the facilities' construction beginning in early ,[11] but that has yet to happen.
