I guess I better contribute to this (or something similar) and stop whining about the schools who are taking full advantage of this situation. I don’t like this change, but I want my Cowboys/Cowgirls to have the opportunity to compete on the biggest stage. To compete at that level, we need to at least give our recruiters some ammunition against the schools buying players.

That's the only reason I edited the OP and added the link from twitter. It's a new world. If all those fans on Saturday contributed a few bucks a month, it's a nice little fund to work with.

They should “purchase” ad space during games. At the end of every quarter we are winning throw a huge QR code on the screen for folks to donate.

Pregame push each week for folks to pledge to donate x amount per point scored

Might as well go all-in with a partnership with an indian nation. Put a casino in the WEZ.

They fund our talent pool.

They get a prime location for a lucrative casino.

Increase game day experience for the gambling types.

What’s more Oklahoma than casinos and football, am I right?

Like gouging people on ticket prices, parking and concessions isn’t enough. Wouldn’t give a dime to an nil program.
I hope you are cool with 5-7/4-8 type seasons in a decade then.

Does anyone have a link to donate to this? I can't give much but if a bunch of us can give $20 per month it could make a big difference.

OSU tickets are incredibly affordable for the value that is Saturday in Stillwater. We pay $300 each for a phenomenal view and experience. $43 a game is awesome.

Parking is free if you know where to go. Have a full on meal at a tailgate before you go in.

I sold my tickets to the baseball games I couldn’t go to this season. I made sure my tickets were always the lowest price considering the section on stub hub. Afterward I went back and did the math and my season tickets were incredibly cheap while making sure I was selling the leftovers at a very affordable price. I really couldn’t believe the final numbers. Will be buying season baseball tickets for quite some time.
