    Yeah, I get that, hence the aforementioned irony. I’m not trying to argue anything, you made a frivolous remark to my comment and I was merely questioning it. My point was the AD is a tough job because they need money to provide the very things that today’s fans want in a game day experience, but they need that money from the very fans they are trying to attract.

    Is this an April Fool's thread? They have UNC at home. They have GT at home. Pretty embarrassing really. I do not know if it is TK's cross to bear but I am ready to see someone else try.....

    State fans already talking about how this will be an ACC/AAC matchup by 2026 and could have 40-50k attendance. Wow...and I thought some of Y’ALL were crazy.

    I have been told from a reliable source that when Dr. Keel was president, our institutional support was 62% of the overall budget. Now it’s down to 49%. As for the number of individual boosters, it peaked around 2,000 in 1990. Hard to believe we are less than 1,500 if that is accurate. We need some accountability there but the fact is we have lost enrollment on the Statesboro campus which has hurt our budget. Even worse, we don’t get any support in student athletic fees from the Armstrong campus until their huge athletic department debt from years past is paid off.

    IMO that’s not entirely out of the realm of possibility. State bares a lot of similarities to UCF (minus the fan base) and I’m sure the ACC will eventually want to have a footprint in Georgia.

    I am almost certain that game will have a least 40k, the majority will likely be GT fans, but they could easily have 40k.

    Eh...who cares.

    Y'all really going to be that pumped about getting a home game in Statesboro against Purdue?

    You'll just complain about that too.

    We need to play as many "cupcakes" as possible to pad our record.

    Yep, playing Wake Forest in Paulson will double our budget and change the trajectory of our whole program all by itself overnight. The other 70,000 or so living alumni that we have that aren't already boosters will immediately open their checkbooks and give til it hurts.

    +1, just keep bringing CCU, ULM, Texas State a crummy FCS team year in and year out to Paulson. Nothing wrong averaging 15,000-18,0000 a year
