TAKE NOTE: Funding quote from HS

I'm not throwing anyone under the bus for being doubtful, and even Ted for his take on the quote, but this is classic HS, and i consider this GREAT NEWS…NOT optimism:

"The money is a done deal. You think we would sit through this if it wasn't?" was the reply."

I hate to do this, but the very next line is:

"Now, that is Howard The Eternal Optimist talking, but hopefully he is right."

We all know Howard sets lofty goals and thinks far ahead…

I will believe it when it becomes official.

I remember promises of a dome, etc. I love Howard, but the truth is that he is an extreme optimist and his word is not the final word.

When a shovel is in the ground I will be happy.

GO OWLS!!!

I agree, with FAU you have to wait for the dirt to be moved before getting excited.

Ted mentions "prominent sponsor activation" and says he doesn't know what it means. I'll translate what it very well could mean…"big money donor funding". The question remains what preceded that comment. Here are some options.

"What we lack is….prominent sponsor activation"

"We are happy to announce…prominent sponsor activation"

"We are seeking…prominent sponsor activation"

You get the point.

Context Ted, give us some context!!!

GO OWLS!!!

Re: TAKE NOTE: Funding quote from HS

I have a gut feeling that FAU will make an announcement about the stadium being funded soon. That doesn't seem like a Howard optimism quote. That sounds like a "we have it but we haven't dotted the I's and crossed the T's" statement.

Right, there are a lot of reasons you cannot announce things like that until they are completely finalized. 

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

That's my opinion. I am disconnected from the daily gossip in the Ox and on campus because there is this thing called the Gulf of Mexico in my damn way. lol
