I guess I am the only person who watched channel 5 news last night. The school did match and Fred said they were looking for additional support. 

Thanks for the update.  Although a no brainer, glad the school did the right thing

I looked into doing a PJ for a group of 12 for a bachelor party, it was like 22k for pilot, gas etc, so this adds up to be about right. 

Now that's how you do a proper bachelor party. Each cup holder on the PJ filled with an 8 ball. Bots poppin' in the mini fridge.

That works too. Holler at some lake rats to join the party and get freaky. Always a good time.

It sounds like Chaifetz announced it and SLU wasn't ready for it. The school admin might not have discussed the plan with the AD. (This is not a shot at Chaifetz)

If the school did match, part of me wonders if they know or think the Big East may be expanding sooner rather than later and are trying to position themselves as best as possible.  Obviously it's easy to say if you provide a free trip of course students will go but it does show dedication to getting fans to games by the biggest booster and the school.  Probably overthinking it but SLU did really hype up the Butler game, Dr. P just sent out a tweet about Jesuit schools in the tournament, and now they are paying money that they have never done before to send students to a game.  Even if not for the Big East, happy to see the dedication to the program finally.  

I think  you think too much.

What is 50k to SLU? That’s one internationals year tuition. Pretty easy for SLU. Hopefully next year they do the contest for Brooklyn 

They shouldnt do the contest. It should be by attendance. How skip described

Per Steve's post over here:

NCAA credits were worth $1.7 million last year.  Assuming that SLU gets 75% of that per the 75 team / 25 conference split that Steve referenced that means each SLU win in the NCAA tournament is worth $1.275 million to the school.  Kicking in $50k for students to attend games would need to increase our odds of winning by roughly 4% ($50k/$1,275k) for this to be a sound investment if you're only looking at the money from NCAA units.  Of course, there are all kinds of other benefits to the school from a longer NCAA run that I'm not factoring in.

The contest with the videos was mostly by the die hard fans that attended most games

True, but like I’m not creative. I went to every game but if I didn’t do a great video I’m not going. Doing it by something tangible removes any b!tching and complaining

I know there was talk on here, but did SLU ever start that app where students check into games, which helps with prizes and such?  If so, this should be the main focus for the prizes.

El oh el. Can't show up to any of the basketball games, can't even be bothered to show up in the middle of campus for a free trip to the bay area. I bet these people wouldn't even show up to the actual game in San Jose!

So glad a donor is sending the REAL student fans to the tournament.

So if you showed up, you had about a 1 in 10 chance of wining. Not bad.

I watched on FB for awhile. I think the first 3 winners were not present. If u can't show up for that u won't show up for the game. Hell, you'd probably ask are we supposed to be cheering for the team in blue or white? Pathetic students.

Also watched some of it, pretty hilarious. The students yelling “NOT HERE” after every name had me weak

My younger brother got picked. He's on here occasionally. Just as big of a fan as myself. I think they are going to have a good group going. Pissed I'm not going to be there though. Fuoking San Jose.  Hopefully they can make it to the s16.

That is awesome. Congrats to him
