Apparently, App State is about to get a large $$ commitment to athletics.

:lol: I wish. I've just known about it for a while and even mentioned "an announcement that will make people happy" a couple of times. As I said earlier in the Stink thread, prefect timing with them being in town.

You're welcome in advance, I try to do my part. I was hoping they would keep it anonymous.

Don't expect you to divulge the amount but could you tell us if it will be a 6, 7 or 8 figure check?

Just getting ready to ask you if you wanted to tell them. What I heard a while ago was it was going to be announced during the game but the plan must have changed. No matter. LOVE to see this. And we've got some more things that are in the works. Keep it up DG and crew!!!

I figured since it was on the Scout public board, it was fair game to share.

I need someone to give me some money. I got an App tattoo this year, shouldn't that be worth something? :)

On scout it says Rick committed a "cash donation" but the Democrat just says committed. Not to split hairs or that it really matters but I was just wondering if it is an actual one time cash donation, several yearly donations that add up to $10m or is it contingent on the sale of a piece of property?

Told you people would be happy, except the brilliant people that hate athletics and are already complaining about it but haven't figured out yet that every one of these means less that Athletics takes from the Foundation.

And Shine, what I was told a while back was it was a straight up single gift donation. After hearing that and 10 Mil I didn't ask any more questions. ;)
