IS ESPN aware of the dedication? Hopefully they can show footage of Diesel and a clip of the dedication ceremony during the pregame show.

I'm sure thats because we are competing with the AAC on viewership. Nice to finally have a Thursday game. Can dream some day we are in that conference.

It’s because the MAC has a deal with CBS now, not competing with anyone. Also, the MAC can’t compete with the AAC, In really anything lol.

But that topic is for another thread....this is the Memorial thread.

So can CBS film the dedication and get footage of Diesel and show it during the pregame show?

It would be nice. Not sure who we would contact to let them know...unless I go rogue & storm the broadcast truck?? I just might do that!

FYI - WIFR Sports Director, Mike Buda, came to interview a few of the people on the Diesel Memorial Project Board of Directors during Homecoming tailgate. It aired tonight on the news - 10/24/17. Turned out very nice.

Was a joke as I know the conf is nowhere near the AAC.

I do hope that the TV gets some coverage of this. Would be cool to post online so everyone else could see as well.

If you are on facebook, there are pics if you search Diesel H. Here are some media links. Expecting to see more as more of the media becomes aware of it.

IMPORTANT!! An anonymous donor will match up to $500 in donations received anytime between now and November 24th. This incredibly generous offer gives an opportunity to get closer to our fundraising goal. Please consider a first-time or repeat donation. Thank you!

The response to the donor match offer has been outstanding!

Another donor has stepped up and will also match up to $500 in donations received from the time of the kickoff of the CMU game Friday though Thursday, November 30th.

Thanks for your support!

Not so much though. We have also had donations directly to our bank account so we have had more donated than go fund me shows.

We will still accept donations either on our go fund me page or directly to The Diesel Memorial Project - First National Bank of DeKalb 141 W. Lincoln Hwy. DeKalb IL 60115 Attn. Deposits.

04-cheers
