Yes, the money will not be gener

However, the donors who will sup

willing to then support other pro

And trying to generate more than
$10 million for this athletic program
will make it all the harder for other
programs to raise half as much.
I’m NOT suggesting that the

The refs and coaches were there
to volunteer their time, family and
friends were there to cheer and the
kids were there to have fun.
There was no money exchanging
hands, no distractions and the fans
had the best seats in the house. It was
football in its purest form.
At the end of the game, it didn’t

Every single day it is mentioned,
and every single year we read our
share of it. I’m talking about racism,
and as I opened Tuesday’s DN, I was
hit by it again. Ren Townsend (DN
Letters), the definition of racism and
discrimination has nothing to do with
the fact that you say hi to anti-social
called being rude. Personally, I don’t
go out and try to be rude to everyone,
but it’s my right to be that way if I
want to be.
The solution to your problem may
be as easy as getting over the hump of
blaming everything that doesn’t go
right in your day on the fact that I did
n’t say “hi” back to you.
Racism is a very serious accusa
tion. And honestly, there is some
merit for a lot of it.
