Seriously?? This is nuts

Half million a year marketing expense for the dealership. Before insurance I’m sure. Probably not that crazy given what they spend on TV. Probably will get more return on it. Think it’s smart by the local dealership.
Though I realize now a dealership isn’t named so it’s say 750k for the collective every year in lease expenses. Maybe offset by a sponsoring dealership.
 
They are given to them as a lease for only one year. So not entirely worth the full $43K x 85 players. And they contain advertising on them. Still an interesting concept. Get 85 players to drive these around and advertise for you. Get truck back next year and lease it out or sell it to a real customer and virtually full price because there won't be many miles on these.

But then Shrader wouldn't have teammates broken down cars to work on in his spare time.
 
Turning Stone has been on the clock for 20 years, if they haven't done it by now, they wont be doing it at all. Maybe if the school was on nation territory
Maybe the school has taken the wrong approach?

There is a relationship there already as they do some contests and giveaways and sponsorship deals.

So the opening is there.

Are the right people in place to make something happen?

I don't think they are.

Can we do that? Or at least put the dome off the tax rolls?

And yet somehow they made rose bowl last year and ranked 16 this year. Because they have a coach who knows how to coach
Whittingham has the benefit of being able to recruit from California, Texas, and the Midwest along with out in the Pacific. When they go to the Big 12, they'll have access to more talent. Talent makes up for coaching. New York is talent barren. You knew that though.

Would PETA allow advertising on the side of a pony?

Utah can recruit California, Texas, and the “Midwest”……but Syracuse can only recruit NY?

Agree. I think the dollars make a lot of sense with the sponsor offsetting some of the cost. And since they were the first to do it, they’re getting free press out of it. We should be experimenting with creative approaches like this.

But utah is what, their 6th choice for some of those players ? Not arguing just staying you have so many other schools to choose from and yet he’s still getting players to be top 20 and successful

Utah has gone to 2 consecutive Rose Bowls. Their 2022 class was ranked 30th and the 2023 class was ranked 20th - 1st ever top 25 ranking for Utah. The '23 class was 3rd in the PAC behind Oregon and USC. They are changing the narrative because they are winning. I'm sure the truck leases help.
