    If I had a billion dollars, I would probably start my own pro team.

    Full renovation of Jack Trice. Completely new athletic facilities with the exception of basketball. They jsut get massive upgrades Everything would be top notch. I mean everything. The soccer facility would rival the best football facility in America. Our football facility would be state or the art in every way possible. The rest would be distrubuted over time as I see fit.

    Also, our coaches would be the highest paid in the nation and our assistants would follow. That's how I roll.


    It's all snark from here on out

    In Iowa? That would be cool as long as it isn't NBA.

    As for the OP: Buy a Cam Newton.

    I would buy a Heisman winning QB who could lead us to a National Title.

    Coaches salaries for FB and MBB would be the obvious first order of business.

    I would specify that it be invested as an endowment so it would provide $50 million-$100 million annually in perpetuity, rather than spent all at once.

    And I wouldn't have to eat Kraft dinner. But I would.
