Mark Lemonis Chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises , TV celebrity, Philanthropist   made a plea on Facebook to the Miami Hurricanes fans and the university urging the university to build a new stadium for their Football team. He said he would donate the first 1 million if they commit  to building a stadium.  His reasoning is the stadium is Too big, too far from campus, not fan friendly for college football esp the students ect.... the same things our fans complain about all the time.  

We need someone to step up like him and start the same conversation and put pressure on USF to do the same. (Sorry for starting another OCS thread but see the similarities with poor attendance ect..).  Wish I had his deep pockets (Id make the  same offer but that's not my reality so cant).   Im sure that many of us would be willing to donate what WE COULD to a stadium fund if one was started.  Reading the post replying to his original post it looks like its gaining some traction(former Players have also committed to donating as a result).   Will be interesting to see how this plays out.  http://www.stateoftheu.com/2015/11/21/9776870/the-profit-has-spoken-and-hes-got-1-million-to-help-the-u-build-the

While that is a nice gesture, $1 mil won't even scratch the surface of what is needed for a stadium.

Agree 1 million is nothing when we are talking about a stadium. However its a start, Its money in the fund, its also getting other people on board as well.   (more than we are doing here at USF) 

Would be nice if USF had a OCS fund created that people could donate too.  Might be surprised at how many  that may donate.
