    I agree. It definitely seems that way

    This is brilliant.

    Not because it solves the puzzle, rather it makes the puzzle solvable.

    Every aspect of fundraising is a piece of the puzzle.

    Just like with recruiting, you can't afford your first HOW pitch to need explanations all 6 of the W's.

    Who, What, Where, Why, When and Win.

    The brilliance of your idea is that it keeps the project top of mind, while simultaneously solving one piece of the puzzle. Awareness

    To go a step further, my kids school always have local restaurant nights that donate a portion of profits back to the school. Surely we can ask our supporters for 1-2 days/year to help in this capacity. While these programs alone won't fund a new stadium I think it should just be one of the many avenues the university should have planned to get the needed funds.

    Example: If Pete's announced that for all away football games they will donate 5% of proceeds back to UL on purchases in the restaurant. I would have to think that more people would show up, hopefully buy more and know that they are making a donation to a cause they support without writing a big check. It's easier for many people to give a little bit more often than a larger sum just once.

    So that would be a "yes" for amendment 1?

    College football and the NFL has possibly priced out the casual fan. To have a decent seat to a NFL game a family of four may be in at $800 on tickets alone.

    P5 college football has almost made it impossible for a fan to purchase decent single game seats. Therefore fans are forced to the secondary market.

    MLS and MLB are suffering the same fate with smaller venues. If people are going to spend money to sit outdoors, they would rather go to another event or activity such as the beach or the lake. I can watch the game on television and enjoy nature.

    Lower ticket prices and local television blackouts may be the only way to correct this. Television may have ruined live sports.
