Give the assistants small raises, help with COA and put the rest toward the new stadium. Keep in mind, while 1.3 million is a lot of money, it doesn't go as far as it used to.

Phase II of Foreman 2.0. The sooner that happens the better.

RE: What should guaranteed money be used for?
Phase 2 isn't getting built with a $1.32M payday. ODU would have to play four buy games every season for five seasons to even make an appreciable dent in the cost difference between Phase 1 and 2. It'd be like winning 50 bucks in the lottery and using it to get incrementally closer to buying a boat.

Take that money and put it somewhere that it can make an immediate impact. Goose the football coaching salaries. Spend a little more on Karen Barefoot's replacement. Put it aside for a boost in hiring JJ's replacement if it comes to that. Buy games -- football or basketball. COA. And there's a bunch of other options that escape my mind, I'm sure.

Point being, this is a drop in the bucket for Phase 2. That's not going to be 100 percent funded by buy games and donations. Use the money in a way that you can experience benefit right away, or at least in the short-term future.

Now is the time to build a dock. Build demand for dock boatgating passes.

I dont think anyone is saying $1.32 mil is covering costs for Phase II but you have to start saving that money at some point. And IMO the sooner the better. When Phase II is done it puts us up near the top of the G5 as far as facilities.

I would venture to guess the issues with Phase 2 is more related to demand than costs, but I could be wrong in that. Maybe a combination of both.

Let's get this thread back on track. So far the suggestions are Phase II, recruiting bribes, a palapa, boatgating dock, fan redistribution of funds and budgeted expenses. What else?

Buy the massive scoreboard right now. We've gotta replace the current one.

This may be the best idea yet.
