Bragging that you've bought season tickets for 47 years doesn't get ANY buildings built and it doesn't move the needle!  When you know better.. do better!

If they play it in Atlanta and let the Circle City  promoters plan it, it will be a HUGE success..

Sponsors have nothing to do with conference affiliation and they certainly don't suggest that a school realign themselves with another conference.  Doesnt happen.  EVER.

Additionally, please believe what the other poster said earlier.  HBCU's are NOT attractive to PWC conferences on ANY level.  The finances suck, the facilities suck, the infrastructure sucks, the professional perception sucks.. we still have a "chitlin circuit" reputation among PWC's.

AAU IS THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE GAME... KIDS COME TO college with an entitlement mentality and if the coach dares to ask them to play defense or if they don't get 20 shots a night they aren't happy and they are ready to transfer... Or their "handler" ends up calling and checking on "how do y'all plan on using my guy in your system so we can decide if this is the best fit for his skill set......

On campus EGOS have always killed HBCU progress.  I agree 100%.  Chancellors want everybody to know who they are and they want it to be CLEAR that THEY run this show from top to bottom. !!

Southern is doing great because their AD isn't an HBCU RETREAD....he gets it and Southern will benefit... $2mill in corporate giving is a good number. Very impressive for the 1-AA ranks...

Nobody said it was limited to the alumni but it STARTS with the alumni !!  PERIOD.. Those people who give to PWC and have no affiliation with the university give because they have friends or alums who give to the program.  Its not limited to alumni but if the alumni dont give then dont expect the locals to support your program.  

And echoing what SCSTATE said, the sooner our schools start hiring AD's with EXTERNAL fundraising experience the sooner we will see some money raised.  Stop hiring retreads and somebody thats worked there for 30 years just because its the easy thing to do.

I've been saying for a couple years... It CAN be done.. we just need to educate our alumni and encourage them to take half of what they spend on homecoming every year and redirect that to our athletic departments on a consistent basis and serious CHANGE could happen with our programs.. Until we understand that, we gone always be in the back of the bus.  PERIOD.. All of the points made on this thread are extremely valid and hold truth that should be implemented. 

Lesson for the day: 

Marketing departments should actively engage CORPORATE SPONSORS

Development professionals/fundraisers engage individuals who have philanthropic interests in supporting the university either annually or by supporting capital projects (bricks and  mortar)

They are two seperate functions and should be performed by seperate individuals or teams.

It's not a lesser gig when you have job security and a new contract ! I'd take 5 years at Tulsa over one year at Mizzou or any other so called better gig !!!
