    I don't know why Drake would even be playing the Iowa Powerball, he's already a world famous, although terrible, rapper.

    A lot is never enough. This is why the rich buy things that make them more money. Duh.

    So this will net around $50-$60 mil after taxes on the lump sum payment. Even if this is a diehard cyclone fan, can you see any more than $10mil going to the AD? Don't get me wrong that's a lot of money, but would it be enough to get the endzone project jumpstarted?

    If I got the 50-60 million, I would negoiate with Jamie to give around 15 Million specifically for the SEZ, and for that I wouldn't want naming rights, but would like a pair of Season tickets for the rest of my life. :)

    Couldn't you give pre-tax winnings as a donation?

    Depends on how you do it.

    Donate partial ownership of the winning ticket to the ISU Cyclone Club. That portion would be tax free right? Lets says it's $100M lump sum before taxes..... give ISU 20% ownership and they get $20 outright and if your taxes are 40%, you get $48M to take home. If you took it all your self, you get $60M and then could only donate $12M to ISU to end up with the same $48M in the bank.

    Get a lawyer, write it up, go to the lottery office in a limo with JP.

    And over half the time when it's "someone who truly needs it" they end up broke within 5 years. Dumb *****.

    Yeah sad, but not everyone is stupid with their money and actually knows how to invest it or seeks an adviser experienced with lotto winners.

    I am hoping for a the winner to be the following:

    1. A friend or person I know :) And not just a person getting gas on their way to Marshalltown or where ever.
    2. A Cyclone Fan
    3. Person Donates to the Bondurant School District
    4. Person who won has ties to a "guy" in Ankeny. They go have a beer and say why don't we knock this SEZ out.

    Realistically.....
    Probably a Hawk fan from the Hills of Baxter passing through. Got Gas and a Sixer.
    Probably will put up a machine shed, Bar and donate the rest to the Hawks.
