Time for the fan base to step up! We asked Dr. W to hire one of our own, now we have to give him the support (NIL $) he needs to be successful.
GMUBrian - please post he NIL contribution link - and give explicit instructions on how many times we can contribute and any limits. Agree - lets step up -- throw money at the program and hit it home. Every old effer that was there in 2006 make yourself visible and educate the young skulls of mush at Mason to go to the games.

GIVING DAY 2023
Now that its official, I can assure everyone that Tony was our top choice from the jump. He was vetted and passed all the hurdles needed. In addition, from my understanding, there were discussions of what he needed and making sure that Mason was held accountable. I do not have specifics but you can take a guess that it probably was around recruiting, NIL, staff budget etc. My guess is that is why it took a little longer but I am happy to be corrected if that wasn't the case.

I will also be interested to see what his contract is. I haven't heard or seen anything yet, but if I had to guess, its probably 5 years at around 950 or 1m per year. Probably a little more than English 2 years ago.

Its a great day to be a Mason fan and alum. We were all excited about English and we are thankful that he got us in a very competitive direction, challenging the status quo and making us all believe that there is no reason why that Mason cannot recruit/obtain the talent that he pulled in (one way or another).

Plenty of work to do still, but for now its a very exciting time that one of our own who helped build the program we all love (and hang that huge banner that is collecting dust) is now in charge. The best way we can all show support is throwing a few bucks at the mens basketball program today much like many of us did when English was hired.

Go Mason!
