    Eliminating the football program will no doubt make all college aged females feel infinitely safer in the community

    Maybe they can obtain a PPP #1 and a PPP Second Draw loan from the SBA to cover last year’s deficit and help with 2021. Beyond that ......... ?

    I guess it’s time for them to cancel their football program and tear down the stadium.

    shoot, I can dream, can’t I?

    My old man is a TV repair man. He's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix their financial problems....but I won't.

    I've been thinking about that, Mr. Hand. If I'm here, and you're here, doesn't that make it 'Our Time', Mr. Hand?

    This is like LSU and their obvious, documented, on-national-tv-payola, rampant cheating. Big Fat Hairy Deal. It doesn't mean crap. They'll still keep chugging along, fielding teams, etc., etc. There is no genuine consequence to their financial mismanagement that I see, just as LSU is caught red-freaking handed and their coaches keep coaching, their 5 stars keep signing up....

    I care more about U of F being on the up & up than I do about the problems elsewhere. There's no satisfaction in seeing mismanagement and cheating with zero consequences in the real world.

    So to review - like 5 straight stories of financial woe and then the last article discusses a new 100 Million stand alone facility.

    OK - got it.............

    My ex's accountant must surely be working in FSU's budget department.

    Does anyone know the current status of the f$u football facility? It originally was supposed to be a $60 mill stand alone and be completed July 2021. It was delayed due to lack of fundraising, and then they discussed not doing the stand alone and just renovating the existing building. Anyone know the status?

    I dont want them to go under....I want them to become a consistent 4-8 and 6-6 team. Cycling thru crummy coaches, mired in below average everything. Never winning the division of the acc, only to find themselves always stuck with some controversy regarding grades, players' academics, and athletic standing. Always financially strapped, then once in 10 years a ray of sunshine...as in starting out 5-0 and looking great only to lose the last 7 in a row. Perfect.
