VERY nice! I wish I could do the same, or even one tenth of what they are doing.

Go Owls and thank you to the Schmidt's!

Wow, awesome.

Can FAU use that anyway they see fit?† Are they going to use that to pay the loan or can they use that for other things…such as recruiting budget and advertising?

That would be great if they could use say 10% for recruiting and 10% for advertising. Adding 200K to each buget would help to fill those seats and still put 1.6M to the actual stadium construction budget. I would rather they do that than have my name on an empty 30K stadium.
