    I suck at math but that won't raise over half a million, but more around $50,000

    He read it the same as I did. $10 * 53,613 or $536,130 but it is $10 for 10 seats or a buck a seat. Total of $53,613

    Last time I tried math I failed, badly, but this doesn't seem to add up if $10 = 10 seats.

    Seats filled.


    That site need a graph or an interactive version of the stadium image above to track progress, probably should have a facebook causes function as well.

    That's it at this time? Last year was really great but I doubt we come close to that number this year.

    maybe they can fill the area around folsom with virtual bodies as well. that would be cool. while i cannot sit in a seat for the spring game, i can fill virtual seats.

    I donated and I want to see my virtual bodies in those seats, NOW!


    seriously, a great idea and a fun one.

    Hope the update is easy to see as the donations start coming in.

    The organization/publicity on this is terrible, that is what is holding this back. I showed the link to 3 buff fans this weekend, they all get alumni newsletters and they all get regular communication from the school, not one of them had heard about this.

    How hard would it be for the AD and the alumni association to get together and communicate this to a few more people? sharing email and contact lists isn't tough, it is about time the school tied a few more of it's entities together and began to act like a business and less like a bunch of confused college kids.

    The thing is, I know a couple people who said they coughed up $100 on Friday and the thing didn't move between Friday and today. The graphics artist took a day off, methinks.

    Would have been better to have small increments of seat-filling periodically to get folks excited instead of these huge sections every few days.

    The other way makes it seem like your $10 bucks count, because you see the small change.

    I agree, a total donations # of donations as well as a daily aveage graph would be cool too.

    It's been about 3 days between updates.

    I'm going to shoot a sweet little note to Bohn and tell him, while I like the promotion, folks easily lose interest when they keep checking and, nada, nada, nada happens.
