Lol well done
I thought what you said was funny/comical.
On previous occasions (before this year), Plink's information has checked out most of the time.
I could not resist...
Thought Id knockout 2 birds with one post. Hate waking up to news about Mickey D's U. But one has to wonder when will bring grant money in as a research university.
2nd bird, has Green brought any 'Green' in?
Just this month:
The DHS Science and Technology Directorate awarded a 10-year grant to Mason to be the lead institution for the Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis Center of Excellence. The first year alone is worth $3.85 million, so that could easily be $30M+ over the full 10 year grant period. https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/news/2017/08/02/news-release-dhs-selects-gmu-new-coe
Has Mason ever ad an issue with receiving grant research money? Frankly, I think Mason is a good undergraduate school, but a premier Grad School.
Way superior to every other VA school that's not UVA, and maybe Tech...
At least from what I can see, Mason is usually at the forefront of getting research for several areas whether its bio-tech, information security and countless other areas.
Probably in the same category of Tech and JMU, but I would guess William and Mary and UVA are a little higher, but I really don't know.
I always forget about William and Mary hahah.
Anyway to use that grant money to fund a new bball arena? Maybe use it as a way to study human behavior within certain confines of an arena with a jumbo tron and Elite Pep Band?
this is the kind of thinking we need at Mason Hall (or whatever its called now). Well done.
Not Darrell Green, but fundraising/marketing related- just announced that Learfield Sports (our agency of record) is merging with IMG. Not sure what the combined company will be called and I'm curious to know if this enhances our ability to generate more corporate support.
The short answer.. it does.
I got the urge to expand on this a tad bit. This is a major development within college sports as a whole, and is an extremely good thing for Mason. To try and give a little bit of perspective, this is like Verizon and AT&T merging. Specifically for Mason, this not only will provide an increase in resources to the staff on the ground, it will also give Mason the chance to be a included in some massive regional and national pitches that involve several schools. We should see a significant bump in ad revenue once the deal is finalized.
In a way that other schools won't? Or are these companies so large that a lot of schools will see the same increase in resources and revenue? Excuse my ignorance, I am but a simple poli sci major.
A lot of schools will see an increase in resources, and should see an increase in revenue. This won't make a huge difference on a local sales level, the upside for Mason is in the increased attention on a national sales level in terms of being included in pitches to major brands. Mason is a big university in a big market, which makes us an attractive asset.
Agreed. Working to grow a national brand.
gmu05 says it's much ado about nothing.
Haha well I know for a fact it's not
