    Hey, I hate Nebraska as much as anyone and was at the game in Lincoln and many others, but going to Lincoln and beating Nebraska is a noble and awesome thing, but if it does not get us recruits than screw them. We could swap them in here and there if we have the other good games we need, but otherwise, F the Big Red.

    "The couple has two sons: Joseph (15) and Christian (13)."

    From here.

    Also: Holy ****. Georgia names coaching/coordinator positions after donors. They definitely take their football serious enough.

    I had a very similar conversation with a Boise State fan after we hired Dan Hawkins... Told me we would be playing for championships...

    Weird. Because most of what we heard from Boise fans was that they hoped Petersen wasn't coming with Hawkins and that if he doesn't then they aren't worried at all about losing DH. We gave them a lot of crap and didn't want to believe it. I mean, how could you not be freaking out about losing the HC with the highest winning percentage in football? Had to be sour grapes and rationalizing things, right?

    As long as they're not QBs, I think we're good.

    The JMac situation was okay, even good. Cody... well, we know what happened with Cody.

    Hawkins was hired in 05', you are currently on the c-unit, so you were like ten years old when that conversation occurred. They were probably trying to console you after you didn't get the correctly-shaped chicken nuggets.

    Yep - I didn't get the feeling that Boise State fans were all that pissed at all about losing DH, because they knew CP was the reason behind the success.

    I think MelT is a home run higher, just saying the Georgia fan base claims don't do much for me.
    On the other hand, I graduate in May. When do season tickets for old people go on sale?

    Dude. No reason to make @sweaty teets even more self-conscious about his weight problems.

    Stanford does the same thing for their endowed coaching positions. Not sure if we have enough funds in our football endowment to dedicate any towards a specific position (coaching or playing). Last I saw I think we had like $20-25 mil in athletic endowments in total. Stanford has twenty times that (around $450-500 million estimates from a few years ago). It's actually an amazing blueprint to follow to compete with the blue blood programs:

    This all looks and sounds great. 1st CU needs to show appreciation to the long time fans, maybe some of us would get off a little more money if we didn't feel like "second class" fans. #2 winning fixes a lot.

    Not really, they have just created a new ticket tier that was the same price. The stipulation on being alumni doesn't seem to be a thing now.

    Yes, I know some recent grads who bought them. Dirt cheap like <$220 I believe.

    Edit: What Shldr said, I just know they were cheap and they got the email about them post-graduation.

    No argument from me. There are three legs to the stool to make us a top tier program long-term. Performance on the field is one. Facilities/Admin support is one. Core Fan/donor support is another.

    "Support" and "Performance" are defined as being "Top 25 in the nation" level not just basic "oh we do that" level commitment.

    If we just get performance on the field then we will lose that coach to a bigger program.
    If we just get Facilities/Admin support then we repeat the last 6 years.
    if we just get Core Fan/Donor support then we become like Arkansas, Ole Miss or Missouri.

    Recruiting is a by-product of all the above. So is general fan interest in the state/region.

    Stanford's model was to address the two that they university/AD could control. Once they hired a HC (Harbaugh) that could affect the performance it was a rising tide that lifted all shifts.

    We can address the HC position first; but the other two have to follow and maintain "top 25" level for our program to be truly elevated.

    Yes and young alumni is by far the way to go if you can. Especially if you are like most and will continue to sit in the student section. Basically the same price as the 3 game packs.
