The Zippy Dome! I love it (even though it would sound like a peanut butter company). Make sure it is surrounded by plentiful parking and plentiful tailgate space. I hate to say this, but Rentschler Field would be a good model. Just have to find a big enough area to take over. Maybe you can convince the city to sell you Thornden Park. Hey, the city needs money. What's a wedding venue when compared to the Zippy Dome!! Or, there's always all that acreage on the other side of Manley... out towards Nottingham Road. A little exercise of eminent domain could go a long way. Might as well think big!

Rest assured, no matter where the Zippy Dome is located, there will be sufficient tailgate space and monorail service.

And 24-hour sunshine.

7. Throw in a 12,000 seat hockey arena for our new-to-be D-1 men's team, including extra scholarships for women sports to stay Title 9 compliant. While we are dreaming ...
 
-fund a hockey program at su (and whatever women's teams are needed to balance). model the jerseys after the flyers (not hard).
-be the person who loans his private plane for recruiting trips, pending interviews, etc.
-bring the staff from a top drum corps to instruct/recruit for the band.

And Zippy peanut butter already has a sports tie-in. Maybe you can get them on board also.

1. Win a cool billion from Warren Buffett
2. Pretend to be Maryland fan and donate funds to fix financial mess
3. Laugh when I say "gotcha! Crabcakes and ruining athletic departments, that's what Maryland does!"
4. Update basically everything with the Dome minus the core structure including adding an extension to celebrate SU's athletics history, banners celebrating all of SU's NFL HoFers, build a dorm INTO the Dome with classrooms, add a transparent Dome that is really just a giant 3D HD TV so if you have glasses, we can add video that makes you feel like you are in a highlight.
 
You always have to take the lump sum option in these things. The future has too many unknowns.
yeah but after taxes that leaves you with 2-300 million. cant give it all to SU.

Not true. You immediately put 1/2 of it (the max allowed by law) into your newly-created private foundation (since you're eventually going to give away at least half of it anyhow); that will significantly reduce your tax liability because it counts as a charitable contribution. Use some of the balance for immediate charitable contributions, real estate taxes and anything else you can get a tax credit for.

Then, on an annual basis, you will have to disburse to charity a minimum of five percent of the corpus in the foundation ... but you will have invested it in instruments that give the foundation a large, steady tax-free return because you don't have to pay taxes on income earned by a Foundation.

Seriously, a private foundation is the only way to go -- both to save taxes, and to give yourself time to figure out what you want to do with the windfall.

The wellbeing of the fanbase helps a sports program. So I would add to the list:
-making this site ad free
-making a pay side that I sponsor everyone for
-doing what it takes to bring back Tee. I'm having withdrawal symptoms, the likes were like an addiction
-free beer at games til the first person has to use the restroom. Likely OttoInGrotto due to his affinity for the pee trough and it's psychedelic ability to give him nicknames for new recruits

You have been listening to "Tax Talk with CTO" - made possible with a grant (Jerimi) from the zippy foundation
