We will lose Seth most likely after this season, he turned down large dollars from two texas schools to stay here.

Players need to be supported and the model has changed, it's not pretty from the outside yet these young men need our help

This is exactly what I'm talking about. Between getting left out of the B12 and NIL now allowing power schools to swoop in and basically buy G5 players... It sucks but this is how it is and schools like Memphis have no chance any longer. It was hard before now its impossible.

Give until it hurts

I have 2 degrees and have been a season ticket holder since 1971

We have come a LONG WAY

The “lift” from getting from there to a Top 35 football and basketball programs was a lot tougher and longer than the “lift” before is to get P5 recognition; we are also an R1 research institution and a USNWR Tier One academic university

So what’s needed now? Let’s start with showing the determination we showed getting here

And here is the key part: We have 165,000 alumni (Ole Miss has 91,000) that have never mobilized to make the financial commitments needed to match our corporate support

Right now, the key is the 901 NIL Fund; successful fundraising will be reported in about 60 days BUT we need to match some P5 $$ levels; we can’t depend on “everyone” or “someone” to step up if each of us isn’t doing our part; we need $10 Million annually for our 100+ athletes to eventually reach an average of $100,000 per athlete

If that sounds like a lot, it ain’t and, for example, The Ohio State U coach says he needs $13 Million annually to maintain his current roster quality

If each of us makes a commitment, we will ALL make a difference

AND….as the 901 Fund raises money to purchase the NIL rights from players, those rights will be contributed to 901 charities (Youth Villages, Methodist LeBonheur, St Jude we hope, and many others) which we believe all 901 donations will be tax deductible

You’ll hear more soon; so let’s be proactive; Google 901 Fund, and start writing checks or making digital donations online

What EACH/ALL of us may contribute will be the key to making The U of M what it should AND CAN BE

GO TIGERS

But the people running this fund are working for free, no one is getting rich off of this, it is a legitimate charity set up to help the University of Memphis student athletes. The marketing/fundraising and administrative costs are reasonable and in-line with what other charities do (for instance St Jude spends about 18% on fundraising and administration).

Alright, I'm in. Nice "thank you" message after I finished.

Aw man I signed up yesterday and I didn’t get a thank you message. What did it say?

Vimeo embedding isn't working, so:
https://vimeo.com/718019259

I love how AG stays involved with the University of Memphis. That dude is about to be a star in the NFL but he still comes to Memphis events and participates in things like this. I remember one time Norvell described him as having a "servant's heart." Just a really good guy.

I think the young men in the football program are very high character individuals. Silverfield had an interview the other day where he talked about how that is one of the factors they look at when recruiting - they only go after kids with the right kind of character who will be a good fit in the program. These are good kids and it is easy to support them.

If you think the guys running the 901Fund are doing it for personal financial gain you are a loser and I feel sorry for you.

RE: Tiger Nation: Time to step up with $$ and support
For anyone hesitant about contributing to the 901 fund, you have the option of donating directly to the university. You can support your particular college, the scholarship fund, the building infrastructure (campus development) fund, or even just give to the "urgent needs" fund where money is directed to where it is needed most.

You also have the option of donating to the U of M Foundation. Whichever option you choose, Tiger athletics will indirectly benefit by improving the image of the university in the eyes of B12 or ACC decision-makers. Good thread, BigBob, I'm in.

RE: Tiger Nation: Time to step up with $$ and support
I think there should be a few more contribution level options - particularly between the $19 and $90 levels - there is a lot of room there where people might have interest. I signed up for the $19 but prolly would have gone a little higher if it were an option. Why not let people choose their own recurring contribution amount?

If you choose not to donate for whatever reason, it is not a requirement to post a big crazy rant here explaining why. Just FYI.

Maybe the UofM Football team is on to something with this woke approach. BLM received $90M in the last 2 years. And they have land/property assets totally > $40M. Reach back out to our good ole buddies at BLM. Maybe we can name the concessions stands after them for $20M. Go all in!

Apparently that doesn’t get you in a P5. Go check out the racial breakdowns of the schools in the Big 12 and then check Memphis out. We are the most diverse of all those schools yet we continually get snubbed.

If I was our administration , I would use any means necessary. Use the fact that we have an African American baseball and basketball coach
