    Re: Football Season

    It basically costs us somewhere between $75 and $100 per month to run the board for the year -

    Depending on software renewals and such - the server costs are static and make up most of that figure -

    We plan our budgets so we can make it from Sept to Sept on board costs -

    But anyone is welcome to give anytime they want to through PayPal -

    Board traffic will start picking up again when the guys report next week and we will do something before the Nicholls St game to set a projection for the first part of the upcoming year -

    All I know is ours was not the ONLY proposal that was like this....

    I was told that there were somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000,000+ in potential proposals at the same stage as ours - some much bigger, some smaller -
    Do you mean to say that the athletic department has left a million dollars that were there for the taking just sitting on the table? With no intention of doing anything about it? WHY WHY WHY would they do this?? It makes absolutely no sense. Especially when everyone knows out athletic budget can use every penny it can get. I just don't get it....

    What other proposals for GIVING the department money were not accepted?

    Our AD does not like SIGNAGE in the stadium - he says it looks tacky....

    He has finally agreed t sell the triangular signs and they will adorn the sidelines and endzone finally this year....

    Which is something Ronny fought for the past three years and low and behold he agrees to do it this year....

    Why does he do things - I wish I had an answer Nathan - I really do...

    He needs to get his head out of his ass every now and then and look at what is going on in college athletics. Corporations PAY to have their name out there. We are idiots if we refuse to take advantage of that.

    Have y'all considered allowing limited advertising on BB&B? Not popups, but just one or two ads on the front page with links to their website. Something to help defray the monthly operating costs.
