Thread: Minnesota fundraiser dual this Sunday

    Default Minnesota fundraiser dual this Sunday

    Now's here's a winning idea: Buy a ticket to attend a college wrestling event, and know that 100% of your money will go directly to fund scholarships for wrestlers ... and help ensure the long-range success of the host program.

    The University of Missouri and Oregon State have hosted events like this with great success. Now the University of Minnesota is hosting a scholarship fundraiser of its own, as the Golden Gophers welcome Big Ten rival Purdue to the Sports Pavilion on Sunday, January 31 at 2 p.m. Central. The dual meet will be broadcast on a tape delay on the Big Ten Network at 10:00 p.m. Central on Sunday.

    At this dual meet -- dubbed the Gopher Wrestling Endowment Meet -- all ticket proceeds will go directly to the Minnesota Wrestling Scholarship fund.

    You can thank the AD a whole lot more than JR for that one. One responsibility of an AD is to produce a little cash for the university after there is enough revenue to meet the athletic budget. Allowing JR to boost the wrestling endowment with this revenue and purely a gift from the AD. Minny must have a good year at the football and bball gates to not have the cash diverted to the athletics treasury and supporting other non-revenue sports.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.
