    On previous occasions (before this year), Plink's information has checked out most of the time.

    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.

    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? :superhappy:

    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.

    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.
