Why penalize the Club?
by frickerdog  (2017-03-10 14:38:52)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Why would you penalize the Club for having Kelly assigned to it? Clubs do not solicit their UND night speakers...those speakers are assigned to the Clubs by the University based on certain criteria.

Frankly, any Club would feel fortunate to have the head football coach be its speaker, no matter what people think of him as a coach.


Does the club keep all the tix $? Does ND pay event cost?
by Rfk  (2017-03-10 14:58:08)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Or just provide the undesirable speaker?

What $ does the club keep after expenses? All of it? Half of it? Figure out that $, add 10%, write the club a check, and stay home. Everybody wins except the enablers.


The Club runs the entire event

They pay for everything, except for Kelly's transportation, and they get to keep any profit. Kelly gets nothing from the Club for his appearance.

Just write a check for the full amount rather than nickel-and-diming the Club.


Gasp. Point is to give club it's margin but skip the event.
by Rfk  (2017-03-10 18:58:59)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

Buying a ticket just bumps the attendance metrics and enables the enablers.

If a ticket is $100 and per seat cost to club is $50, write a check for $60 and everybody wins (except the aforementioned enablers). Or donate $100 but skip the ticket.


What club(s) were granted that special privilege? *

The "quality" of the club's speaker is a direct result of

the club's performance. The best performing clubs get the football coach as their speaker.

It's usually a really expensive event by club standards so the club can increase contributions to the scholarship fund to benefit local students.

Go, spend money but sit on your hands.

I've found it to be a great club in my 4 years here.
by NWEndzone  (2017-03-10 16:50:41)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

FWIW it wins the "top club" as frequently as the alumni association allows it to be won, every five years

Lots of good sub groups for just about any demographic. Young alumni, Old alumni, game watches, community service, professionals, etc.

It's very easy to be involved as you want to be, or be uninvolved but always be updated with lots of good things going on.

It's the best club that I've been involved with and I've moved professionally six times in 18 years.


Thank you so much for the insight. Sounds like fun... *

It's a great club with lots of quality people and game day
by ocmj  (2017-03-11 03:51:12)     Delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

watches. I've met great people there and found lots of opportunities for giving back. My involvement in game day watches (Silky Sullivans) and USC home game trips has waned greatly over the past few years. But the friendships formed haven't, and it's a good way to give locally to OC kids involved in ND.

CJ, would love to meet up for a game watch when we both decide it's worth it. I'm not on board at all right now.

1. If you end up in another hurricane this year, are you going to insist on throwing most downs?
2. You've only had 1 double digit winning season in 8 years at ND, if you were the AD, would you expect success this year? If not, who would be on the short list to replace you?
3. You refuse to embrace tradition at ND, instead trying to turn the gameday experience into something similar to that at Cincinnati...when will the product on the field be more flashy than the crap you've added to the stadium?
4. Are you going to take more blame for losses this year in post game interviews rather than blaming players?
5. Do you even want to be here?

Outside of witnessing it from the other sideline, how do you and your boss determine how close we are to winning a title at ND when you've never seen what that looks like either as a player or coach before?

at the National Championship game with Alabama, were you thinking perhaps that your flirtation at that time with the NFL might not have been a good idea?

8) And if not, why not?

9) When you listen to Crazy Train at home to relax, do you turn the speaker volume up to 11 so as to enjoy it as much as we do sitting at the game?

do you have fire extinguishers blowing smoke to announce your entrance?

If so, does anyone notice?
