    How sad is that?

    dont get me wrong it's about time the school supported the AD but it's sad that the school doesn't do it every year.

    They do give to the CU AD every year with a sizeable subsidy. Are you suggesting they donate an additional 10M a year too?

    Hell, some schools it's the profitable AD that donates to the school.

    I understand the administration has made many mistakes over the years, but the entitlement of our fan base in relation to our collective support is really off balance imo

    Don't know. Back during the Hawkins non firing there were rumors of a horse trade with the subsidy increasing significantly. Dont know if this number reflects the loans the CU AD had to take from CU or if this is yearly subsidy.

    Regardless of the number, they do give. My hope is someday we are the big boy program that is making so much money from our success and rabid fan support , the AD won't need a subsidy and can donate to CU.

    Well Bama still subsidizes around $5m and Oregon $2m so I hope the school keeps investing in their front porch.

    Didn't Benson also donate a lot of money to the project himself? I thought him and Slick Rick both doneted themselves at the beginning to show others they were behind the project.

    I assume this is toward the "down payment" part of the project. Is it good news we need help from the foundation and can't raise the funds outside of it? I really don't know how all that works.

    Was it per year for the next three years? or over the next 3 years? I recall that time frame, or maybe that was what George donated.

    consciously trying to stagger the news in order to keep it in front of fans.

    Sounds good. But I still haven't heard anything definitive. These people have been releasing crumbs of fund raising information for months now. I honestly don't care. Just tell me if the goal is complete and the shovel will be in the dirt by the deadline. Or if the deadline comes and they haven't hit the fundraising target, then give me an updated timeline and don't bother me. Rinse and repeat.

    The president's office donates every year to the AD - it has been around $3 Million per year. The donation from the foundation is different.

    Are you on drugs? The entitlement comment is asinine.
