There's a significant "go big or go home" factor in play here


What ends up being raised and put into this will say a lot about the strength of commitment the university has to properly building this football program and its investment to doing so. College football is pretty much one of the ultimate games of "Keeping up with the Joneses".

While that number is certainly staggering, it could very well be the most sound investment the university could make in the future of the program.

Regarding the good that could come of this money outside of quality football itself, are the kind of academic resources that could be implemented for the student athletes. A top notch graduation rate and academic experience is, has, and always should be a primary focal point at UVa. The question of whether or not you have to sell out on the integrity of providing top quality education in lieu of athletic success is always a big one, especially for institutions like UVa. I think that providing a facility with this kept in mind could help this program become a shining example of how that question is answered.
