    I guess under that theory then why does anyone still care about what BVG did? We moved "on".

    Didn't the feasibility study also say we could be FBS on a $15 million budget?

    You could argue the thing gave some very conservative estimates of our new revenue and still said it was doable.
    Hey TK! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    We as donors directly funded that study which was very flawed and inaccurate. I'd say we should be concerned with misuse of funds like this as stakeholders in our University.

    Are you old enough to have even been a donor back then?

    I won't speak for him, but that was what, 2009? Yeah he probably was a donor. I was a donor and "just" graduated in 2007. It pissed me off then and it pisses me off now because it was a blatant waste of money by an athletic department that constantly complained about not having money in order to get a predetermined result.

    I'm deleting the other 3 paragraphs I had typed out... Have a nice day.

    Not only was I a donor- I was actually still enrolled, so I guess you could say I was supporting even more as I was paying athletic fees.

    It's the power of the goatee.

    It entrances people.

    (only way I can explain that guy being gainfully employed in coaching for so long...)

    Before I ask this question I will lead into it by saying I am not educated whatsoever on the topic of game payouts (so excuse me if this is a dumb question), but wouldn't the money for the Florida game be decided years beforehand when they were making the OOC schedule? Aren't the OOC games like that scheduled 2-4+ years in advance? And did they really offer more after it was decided upon for an initial amount?
