Very nice! If I'm reading this correctly, $500k fully endows 1 scholarship so App would need an endowment fund of $42.5mil to fully fund all 85 football scholarships.

Does anyone know how much more we need to be fully endowed?
$500k for one scholarship? Isn’t that a lot?

Re: Updated Bowl Projections

You should go to a bowl if for no other reason 16 extra practices for the red shirt guys and players coming back. Our last game is Dec. 2, the likely bowl is Dec 16. So under that possible scenario the team plays on the 2nd. Take off Sunday, practice what, Tuesday thru Saturday, take off Sunday the...

Re: Updated Bowl Projections

Man I hope we don’t drop the last 2, go .500, limp to the finish line and pray that we get into some crappy bowl against a 5-7 squad. Win the last 2, finish strong, get some guys back and kick some good teams ass in a good matchup

Re: MAC football

Commissioner basically says tough sh.. fans. We are going after the money. Exposure? So in all these years of “added exposure “ the MAC is still just a good G5 conference. Still don’t see the huge upside for added exposure. It’s not like the conference sends a team to the playoff. Yeah they have a g...

Re: App vs Iowa St

Have to believe we will only improve and that we haven’t plateaued. Guard tandem does look solid. It goes without saying that we have to knock down free throws. When you are down 15 or so, make a little run to cut it to 10 with plenty of clock left and the opponent is in some foul trouble don’t jack...

No fluid motion on offense. Get it to 10 then brick two FT’s and jack a quick air ball 3. Come on

23 of 37 fg att were 3 ptrs. In with you big daddy. Miss the more traditional game. Wish they would move college line to NBA distance.jmo Line should be the same at all levels.

Re: MAC football

I agree with the “helps exposure” comments. I also question the reasoning. How many 18 year old recruits are even watching these games at all? Do schools do any type of surveys with kids who sign? “What made you come to school X?” “Was it because we played on television on Wednesday’s?” How can anyo...

Old man time- hate the 3 point shot. Not advocating for peach baskets and hook shots but the love affair is ridiculous. Tried to watch some pro ball last night and it’s just a three fest.

Re: MAC football

Athletic Departments especially in G5 conferences can’t have it both ways. Big pushes to sell tickets, especially season tickets have to suffer due to Wednesday and Thursday night games. Folks simply are not making those trips. With only 6 home games having one during the week probably causes some f...
