    Instead of pretending they had 70% of the money, imagine if they would have started some local campaign like "Let's Build Tony's House" or something clever sounding and plastered that all over billboards, emails, commercials, etc.

    Actually asking fans and alumni to donate would have been way better than this "silent phase" hogwash.

    1. The Lemoine websight is misleading. IT IS. I read 2 phases.. between end of 16 and beginning of 17. Others read it to say phase 1 after 16 and phase 2 after 17. Thats what Jay said and I agree

    2. The stadium will be completed this year.. maybe not by opening day but our butts will be in the new Tigue.. I believe that

    3. No $2 million pledge has been pulled

    4. 70% of $10 million has been received. The project is going to be over-run

    This is what I heard
    Only problem is, math..
    70% of $10 Mil is not $3 Mil...

    So.. idk?

    That's why for me "The Voice" of The RaginCajuns will always be Don Allen. Not The Puppet BOP.

    Russo's donation was $5 million. How do you figure we only have $3 million?

    I am still waiting for something from the RCAF asking for my donation. I guess the RCAF is in a silent phase for annual fund too.

    I can answer this...

    $3MM in hand right now
    $4MM to be given in $1MM amounts over 4 years ($5MM from Russo @ $1MM/yr for 5 yrs)

    $3MM + $4MM = $7MM (70% of $10MM)

    $3 million of funds actually collected, not pledged. Money in the account. Russo has not given 5 million yet.

    Jay did say that Farmer said 70% pledged. I don't recall the initial interview though. Just saying what Jay said today.

    Even if you count Russo's money in hand as of today, you've only raised $2 mill additional dollars since the initial renovation was announced. Isn't that a terrible amount considering the time passed? What are they waiting on for a public campaign????

    You're saying Russo and all the other donors won't give the rest?
