My guess is he is doing it for three reasons:
1) To indicate his confidence in the future of the program.
2) To set an example he hopes will be followed by other potential donors.
3) To continue his lifetime support of the program.
Wow. The confidence this shows is incredible. He has the best view of whether the SU athletics stock is low and has potential or if all logic says it’s a dog. You don’t throw a million at a dog investment just for appearances when there’s so much else you can do with that. He KNOWS things are gonna be better.
