Dang, I was hoping for a lifetime contract for Jeff Jones.

I read it as the donor is only giving up to 50k max. My letter reads "match ALL donations made before the end of 2017, up to $50,000."

That is the way I understood it after reading my letter as well.

Heck there may not even be a secret donor, this could be a tactic ODAF is using to drive up year end donations. 05-stirthepot

Thats a bit of overhype for this announcement. $50,000 is a very generous donation, but with the Cox bill in place and the media money gone we need $500k donations. I was seriously halfway hoping they were announcing something about the stadium. Maybe first renderings, or an announcement that money received by a certain date would automatically go to the stadium so we get a good product when its built the first time.

I made an extra donation to offset the bowl expenses last year, and it didnt count toward my big blue donation for football, so I donated again to keep my seats. I'll wait till 2018 to donate for that reason. I wish they would have waited until January to do this. Maybe someone else will step up with a match at that time. Hopefully.

For sure. Especially considering this was known for a couple of weeks. What a big announcement that was. Glad there was a hashtag and all.

RE: ODAF Major Annoucement
I think they were hoping for a win on Saturday at MTSU, then blow the horn about bowl and new stadium. But ..... reality set in and the show had to go on, even though the team laid a 'huge' egg on Saturday .... actually an embarrassing game any way you choose to couch it - I was psyched up to watch all week and to see that steaming pile of crap was, shall we say, more than a little disappointing. 03-puke

But, they are still my team and I will support them .... I just hope that they are as sickened as I was watching that debacle and turn it into offseason motivation. If not, more 03-puke next year. No excuses, hard work, discipline, and performance.

It was known for people that closely follow the program.
