RE: Paul Janish New Baseball Assistant
I just wonder about the meaning of "numerous". Six? Twenty? Eighty?

And also the definition of "big". Four figures? Six figures? More?

But it is not surprising to me that many of the big donors are former athletes. It has always been a source of pride to me that many of our athletes go on to major success in non athletic fields. I wonder how many of TCU's "big" donors are former athletes who made their money in fields other than pro athletics.

Buddy, I consider myself a leadership donor, but not one of the "big pocket" ones who can provide lead funding to buildings and facilities. From my perspective, a "big donor" is one who has given well over $1MM to the University.

I consider you an outstanding donor, Walt. Certainly way above my level. My guess is that there are not a lot of "big donors", especially if the $1MM is for a single gift and not an accumulated total. In fact I can think of only three, although some may have been more anonymous with their gifts. Was this the number you were thinking of when you said numerous big donors made their voices heard against Berkman?

Thanks for your response.

Buddy, to me "big donors" are those who have donated an accumulated total of over $1MM...and there are more of those than you might think.

Maybe the donors who are opposed to Berkman are not athletic donors, but donors to the university/endowment?

Not likely since most of those donors would not have known that Lance was a potential coaching candidate.

Apparently, you're relatively new to the program.

For your clarification:
"Big donors" to Rice athletics tend to be former Rice athletes as evidenced by the names on the buildings/locker rooms/etc....

His statement was ' "big donors" to Rice University' not ' "Big donors" to Rice athletics'. No need to correct (or 'clarify') by misstating what was said.

Try again. Actually, I simply said, "big donors", and did not refer to whether they where Rice athletic donors or donors to the university in general. (See post #40 in this thread.)

I'm most certainly not new to the program. However, my initial thought process when hearing the words "big donors" immediately shifts to non-athletic entities regarding Rice University. As I said in my follow up post, I should have put more thought into the context of the conversation as it related to the "big donors" statement.
