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!

But, if given the choice to pick, they are picking Disney World, not Valdosta World, and they are choosing to stay in the Grand Floridian, have dinner with Mickey, and hop on the "monorail" you reference right from the lobby.
This preference for nicer, more convenient things doesn't change throughout life. You can be happy and successful without access to the best things in life. But, it is ignorant to suggest that most people "choose" to not have the best things when those are available. It is far more often an issue of access. The best players have access to the best facilities (if they go somewhere other than Florida) Our housing, training facilities, and off-time environment for football players is substandard and it shows in our results. My point, is our AD's office still seems to not care much about it.
Swinney wasn't an amazing recruiter. Now he offers Disney World to his players, and he is.
It's like Jeff Bezos starting a GoFundMe to get money to build a new Amazon warehouse.
So spend the money on all sports, because it WILL help attract this generation of athletes
Look no one is saying dont spend on other sports. But we have to fix football NOW and they are imstead saying
1. We are keeping all the current income (still top 10 despite Fooley's efforts).
2. Spending most of it on us/admin or giving it back to the unicersity.
3. Spending on every other sport first.
4. Football last and only if you give us a huge amount EXTRA
It is long past time for us to clean put UAA.
Screw off and I mean that it in the kindest way possible.
It also seems likely that Nay'Quan Wright's recent tweet might be that players disappointed to find out we don't have money for the upgrades. Is there any indication the new facilities are on hold until donations help make it affordable?
