    Poll: Would you be willing to help fund a billboard outside NCAA headquarters?

    Kyle is investigating the cost of securing billboard space in Indianapolis near the NCAA headquarters. He has been speaking with Clear Channel, the owners of advertising space in all reaches of the galaxy. It sounds like it would cost about $3000-$6000 to put one up. The purpose of this poll/thread is to determine if there would be enough support for further pursuing this. If so, we will likely build some kind of "Donations" feature into FreeLucca.com so people can pledge.

    I would put up a place for people to donate here on CF but it's hard to know if you could get that type of money. You'd probably have to raise money some other ways unless some big-time donations come in.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    yea that does seem hefty to rely on just donations through this site. You might have to look for sponsors in some way.

    We certainly appreciate everything Jeremy. Right now all I'm interested in is seeing if this can be more than just a pipe dream.

    I would rather see Jeremy get $1700 for CF rather than a billboard.

    Shoot, the first option is supposed to be $100, not $1000!
