Owl Club Giving-- TODAY IS THE DEADLINE!
For those who have yet to give to the Owl Club this financial year (with benefits good throughout the upcoming 2021/22 season for all our sports programs)...

The Owl Club giving year ends on June 30th, and the support of donors like you is more important than ever! By making a gift before June 30th, you allow Rice Athletics to invest in the TRUE student-athlete experience and give our Owls the resources they need to compete at the highest levels!

With 5 women's programs finishing the season ranked inside the Top 40 nationally, including 4 ranked within the Top 26 (soccer, basketball, volleyball, T&F)...4 different student-athletes earning first team all-american honors...the excitement generated by the recent hirings of Lindsey Edmonds (WBB) and Jose Cruz, Jr (baseball) as new head coaches...and the high expectations for the upcoming football, women's volleyball and men's basketball seasons, now would be a great time to show support for our sports programs and, especially, our student-athletes, who are such great representatives of the university.

Make a gift of $25 or more to the Owl Club Athletic Fund or anywhere in Rice Athletics to receive a pair of 2021 limited-edition Rice University "Shoot The Moon & Warm Your Soles" socks as appreciation for your support.

To show your support go to https://riceconnect.rice.edu/AthleticsRiceSocks or contact Mike Melendez at (713) 348-6970.

Just a final reminder-- Wednesday is the last day to give during this financial year.

For the 2021 -22 year Rice Athletics plans to operate at 100% capacity and making a gift today unlocks your benefits for the year. As an FYI, here's the benefits chart: http://www.riceowlclub.com/sports/2019/6...chart.aspx

A GIFT BY JUNE 30TH UNLOCKS BENEFITS FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON
Giving in a calendar year vs. fiscal year is confusing. Here’s a quick explanation: A gift made to the Owl Club Athletic Fund during a fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th) unlocks benefits for athletics events occurring in the following fiscal year, or the upcoming sports seasons.

Again, here's the link for giving and for securing your limited edition Rice socks...

I just can't do it.

If things turn around, I will jump back on board, and hiring Cheito as baseball coach could be a big first step in that direction. But there is just too much that has gone too far wrong for me to be able to hop back onboard on the strength of that.

Maybe it's because of my long-standing respect and friendship for Wayne. Heck, I was screaming at Bobby to hire him for years before he did. But that whole situation was just the final straw, and there are too many other things about the university's direction that trouble me. I have given well into six figures and will never hit seven regardless, but I just can't right now.

Rice University was pretty close to perfect for me when I went there, but it would not be on my short list today. I am pretty sure I would end up at Notre Dame. And I'm protestant.

And you've said exacts same thing multiple times already. We get it. You're entitled to your own feelings and perspective, but do you really have to do on this thread? Couldn't you just ignore it rather than being Debbie Downer?
