Honest question for you...Question for those who are unhappy about this: would you rather they had kept the money, or given it to some other school? Would you want the university to refuse the gift?
Honest question for you...
Are you suggesting that they would have withdrawn their gift if Iowa hadn't offered to give the family a super pretentious title of nobility over a real life person, instead of naming a facility or department after them?
If I were a millionaire making a donation like that and Farta suggested using my name as the title of a person, like some stupid English monarch I'd have said, "Nope, I'm good. Put my name on the indoor practice field inside the performance center and we'll call it even."
I mean how fucking pretentious do you have to be to slap your name on a job description?
Joe Buck’s failed hair plug disaster was the most appropriate example of karma the world has ever seen.Every time I see that clip, which was one of the greatest things in the history of the NFL, I can't help but think of Joe Cuck's sanctimonious rant immediately thereafter and his apology that it was shown on TV.
You’ll never hear it outside an Iowa press conference, I guarantee it.What kind of $hIt storm with the Moon Family make whan nobody addresses or referes to The Moon Family Head Coach? TV Announcers on the recruiting trail etc.
Iowa couple Will and Renee Moon make a transformative donation to endow the head football coaching position and create a new athletics excellence fund.hawkeyesports.com
Today, the Moons are two of UI Athletics’ most generous supporters, and they’re committed to ensuring future generations of players, coaches, and fans can make their own lasting Hawkeye memories. The Bettendorf, Iowa, couple recently made one of the most significant gifts in the history of Iowa Athletics, the impact of which will be threefold:
In recognition of the Moons’ support, Kirk Ferentz and all future UI head football coaches will hold the title of Moon Family Head Football Coach.
- The creation of a new endowment fund that will support the needs and advancement of the Hawkeye football program.
- The establishment of the Will and Renee Moon Excellence Fund, which will provide unrestricted support for Iowa football and other athletics initiatives, as determined by the Henry B. and Patricia B. Tippie Director of Athletics Chair.
- Support for the Kinnick Edge Campaign, which revitalized Kinnick Stadium’s north end zone seating and concourse.
“As we have become better acquainted with Will and Renee, it has become very clear they embody a true spirit of generosity,” says Ferentz, the winningest coach in Iowa history and longest tenured football coach in the nation. “Their commitment in making this gift, in the midst of a pandemic, is a remarkable commitment to their belief in our programs and student-athletes.
This gift is great and all, but the bolded part made me LOLOL.
With drunken Eddie in the booth It could be Blue Moon that Dolph is offering.Here's what I wanna hear this fall...
I wanna hear Dolph introduce Kurt as the "Moon Family Head Coach," and then a drunken Eddie Po to say, "Moon family head coach? Dolph, look at this...check this out... I got your full 'moon' right here, pal..."
One of these days Joe Buck is going to meet a mic he didn't think was live and will receive a Thom Brennaman scholarship.Every time I see that clip, which was one of the greatest things in the history of the NFL, I can't help but think of Joe Cuck's sanctimonious rant immediately thereafter and his apology that it was shown on TV.
Never liked his smug entitled condescension. Like Joe, he wouldn't have made it without the old man (who is just as much a douche rocket.) The worst, when he knew he was all but fired, was his attempt to bring his "faith" into the equation.Or maybe a Thom Brennaman Sabbatical?
