We have a T. Boone Pickens. What we really need is about 20K-30K fans who are willing to go above and beyond buying a couple of $100 season tickets and who complain like babies when the cost of a parking pass increases by a few bucks.

I'm sure you'll be first in line to shell out the 5k donation for Tiger Lane in '18. How much of that will you recoup by selling the space for all the games you miss?

You ever hear the old adage about making assumptions?

I was told the money WAS there. I was also told by 2 people within the athletic administration that ground breaking would take place right after the season and would be ready by next football season. A number of our players are also of the understanding that it will be ready by next season, as mentioned in a CA article where one player said, practicing in the cold or when it's raining won't be a problem next year when we're in our new indoor facility. I know for a fact Fuente was under the impression it'd be done under his watch (didn't happen), wonder what Norvell was told. Beginning to wonder if the damn thing will ever be built.

If the money is not there, they should not have said that it was. At this point, no one knows that more funding it needed. Personally, I don't understand why the new basketball facility was started first when we already had a pretty good facility and football is driving things. If football is the priority, then the IPF should have been funded and approved before the new basketball practice facility.

My understanding is that he kicked in a big chunk and then expected the rest of us to help out. T or F?

Agree in that the understanding was the commitments were in to meet the "Time to Shine" goal. Maybe some dried up like the Big XII expansion project? Don't know. IF they don't have the $ or the commitments any longer, the messaging to go back out with that information is VERY tricky, IMO.
