Who do you think is funding the NIL deals?

Those two rows at FiFo are spoken for then. Great NIL ROI by selling Kolek jerseys to 50 people.

As I said nothing wrong with Scholl snuffleuppling to the big donors but not marketing to the masses is eventually bad for business.

Agreed.  The ROI on all events may not be amazing, but fostering a community, building a brand, and finding new donors that can become large donors is important.

As Al used to say: The funny thing about poor 25 year olds is they sometimes become really rich 50 year olds.

Ah, these are the eternal questions of alumni engagement.  Does involvement at a younger age always mean engagement later on? Does it correlate to giving?

What is engagement anyway? Is it the traditional, event-based model? Or can engagement simply following #mumbb on Twitter?

How much resources (including time) should be devoted to engaging people whose pay-off comes years or decades down the road when you have immediate needs now?

And MU should know the upside (Al, Crean, Buzz, Shaka) and downside (Dukiet, Wojo) as case studies.

With decades of experience, MU likely knows exactly how effective those low-level alumni events are at turning out profit down the road.

And it's probably worth noting that one of MU's strongest boosters was not an alum at all and therefore unlikely to have been influenced by a cookout, race, ice cream social, or picnic when he was 25.

ND football has a much larger following than MUBB.  How many people are going to skip out of work to watch MU play some semi pro team in Europe, while having to pay for a Peacock subscription, in the middle of the summer?

The $25 donations won't do anything compared to the $6M donation the big donors will make.

Me.  That's one.

Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.
