Re: Henry C is in the portal

Looks like an offer, not a commitment, similar post about UMass https://i.postimg.cc/Wh2Hd6th/Screenshot-20220114-125015-Twitter.jpg Good catch, and I stand corrected. Wording still seems weird to me for an offer announcement, but it is entirely possible that it's just me. Glad to see he's getting ...

Re: The merits of shameless self-promotion

I like the aggressiveness of pushing their own brand. For USU, it would be a good start to do more just along the Wasatch Front first. This is true. First priority for us. One thing that got me thinking was that the article said SDSU dropped about $100k on this campaign. Anyone know what our budget...

The merits of shameless self-promotion

No. With NIL in full affect the real programs are now up to 15 QB's.
