Just going to post this here and let it sink in…that our University is in the middle of Boca Raton. †South Florida, where 5 million + people reside.

Here are just a few examples of millions of dollars being brought in at Universities that aren't Clemson or Alabama.

Wont even get into pointing out we have failed to accomplish this in a span of 10 years of economic growth.

You want to know the even more depressing part. FIU has naming rights for their stadium and we donít.

If we have consistent winning football seasons, which our program has yet to accomplish, we will eventually have naming rights. Our program has shown that it can win a championship but it was also a learning curve understanding how to come off of a great season and to maintain that success.

I am looking forward to this upcoming season because we have tenured coaches now (e.g. Glen Spencer) who would have easily been qualified to be our head coach 5 years ago.

All we can do is keep showing this program our support and the naming rights will be a result of the future success.

Go owls!

I agree, but will also add that it is more than just us. You have had nationally televised events at the stadium every year.

$250k was a slam dunk opportunity which was missed badly…without getting into the weeds of the deal, they solicited Office Depot but basically wanted $1M.

Uh, no.
