    $300M. Wow.

    Of course it will look like Carver Hawkeye where all the fans look like empty seats.

    300 Million? That's like 6000 a seat, or a million dollars a paid ticket!

    Anyone see Fake Dan Beebee's tweet on this? Hilarious.

    Are you telling me that every seat in the stadium will be it's own toilet seat?

    They should get some cardboard cutouts for their end zone seats. That would make it pop!

    Too bad ISU can't get a gift that big, we could do something cool that would actually get used.

    Re: Baylor To Get Largest Donation in History

    This has to be the largest donation not only in Baylors history, but possibly the entire B12.

    You'd think UT had some big hitters.
