    Well when people donate we can afford a 2 for 1. That facebook group has 9K fans and we have what, 1400 boosters? Yea I realize players are in there and students, but let's just say 3K are in the workforce and care enough to be in the group, but not enough to donate. Even if 300 of those started donating annually that would make a huge difference in our budget.

    Gag State is our peer - their capital campaign raised over $300M. Ours? Like $80M.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    Ironically, the AD needs to make improvements to attract those new donations (i.e. facility upgrades, P5 home games, etc.). Its a tough job.

    That and a better overall football winning percentage, by about 30%.

    LIke I said before, if you want to donate $3M to give up a home and home and do a 2 for 1 please do so. While you are at it, increase season tickets to 10K so we can upgrade the suites/press box. Oh and while we are fantasizing, let's get 5K boosters.

    Our fans want steak on a dollar menu budget.
    Not true. We want a steak budget. Need an AD that can get us there. Before you ask, yes I am a donor and STH.

    The decision to move to FBS was calculated 7 different ways from Sunday. Three numbers stood out.

    1. We have no money
    2. We live in a state with the bare minimum FBS programs relative to population.
    3. Georgia follows only California, Texas, and Florida with the most FBS recruits in the country.

    The only thing that's changed is expectation. We may not have money but if you're a coach you have better than a 50% chance of getting a nice raise in three years.

    I'd say we're loaded for bear.

    IDK.

    How hard can it be? Especially considering everyone else in the belt has done it for years?

    I get frustrated with the location excuse. I think there is more to it than that.

    All the power 5s should want to play us: Play bama - they Win it all; play Clemson - they win it all; play LSU - they win it all. Seriously - if we get paid to travel let’s go get paid and win the games and bring the cash home to Paulson. Donor & Season Ticket holder - Let’s GATA.
