      They got their priorities straight I see - in an easy to understand graphic.

      Pony up if you want football to get their facilities. :D

          Why is tweeting their donation goal infuriating?

              We don't need an indoor football facility, new dorms, etc to be successful. Mr. Foley said we are not about to get into an arms race with other universities over facilities. Wouldn't that be silly? What good would that do?

                Will the UAA accept Oxbucks?

                    Spending over three thousand on football tickets this year, I'm tapping out on more money.

                    So if I read this correctly (probably not), it looks like it's saying thanks for your donations. We've already spent them on non-revenue sports even though we know that isn't what you donated for. Now we're asking for more, so trust us, we'll actually spend it on Football this time. Honest!

                      Just think it’s funny how a tweet for donations “infuriates” you guys.

                              Since you've defended Foley at every turn for years, I can understand how you feel.

                                This shows EXACTLY what we have been saying. EXACTLY. Fvkk football, everything else first.

                                Amd we dont give a damn if football.makes 140 million a year, that money belongs to the other sports first.

                                    I say we cut the UAA budget in half. Take that $20M per year to build what football needs and then see if we can raise funds to get the UAA budget back where it was. That would certainly qualify as a charitable donation as those UAA staffers don’t seem to provide any value.
