That's great, but ...

1) where were these people before the program was dropped? It's not like it was a secret that baseball's been in danger for a while now.

and

2) I'm afraid it will take a lot (a LOT) more money than that -- like $20 million or more -- to have a chance to reinstate baseball.

I hate seeing sports get cut, but I don't think President Rogers & Bob Moosbrugger did this without considering all the options. It would take much more than $1.2M to resuscitate BG baseball.

Where were those people before? My guess is it was very similar to 2009 with BG Hockey. Former players give money and nobody knows where it goes, and those who gave get pissed. The Haas money was supposed to be used to field turf in 2014. Where did it go? Meanwhile, Mike Jinks gets 420K, his high school o coordinator gets 130K, his high school d coordinator gets 130k. They all get fired, Loeffler gets 530K? Say what? People aren't going to give Moose and his crew money to funnel more to football. Can't you see they don't trust him? It's pretty obvious in real time. I mean he did quit the team as a player right?

Also you clearly prefer to not read or listen. The story clearly stated they needed more funds. Like way more. But, you didn’t read or listen to the clip.

You got me. I didn't read or listen to the clip. I merely (and correctly) stated that they needed way, WAY, WAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY more money to have a prayer of getting baseball reinstated. Please tell us more about Mike Jinks.

They raised 1.2 million in 4 days. That’s roughly the amount it took to have Mike Jinks completely ruin BGSU Football in about 1000 days. Or the amount BGSU will pay Loeffler over 2 years to win about 6 football games (if they have a season).

Why the sarcasm? I doubt that ANY of the schools now cancelling programs, be they baseball, hockey or whatever, are happy to do so. I’m looking at the “ 29 mill. Shortfall” at BG, due primarily to having a partime learning situation for past few months, but more importantly a loss of enrollment for coming yr., results in mega probs. #-o

Add to that the local businesses who have supported the dept through the years losing income from fewer students and fewer activities in town. I’m certain none of them relish losing baseball or any other sport that brings people to the city. The effects of the changes in behavior and habits of college students, staff and visitors have just begun to be felt.
