we won’t be able to match Michigan, OSU or SEC big programs money but what we can do is to keep things in perspective. Going 8-4 in the SEC will probably give you a sack if you can’t beat certain school(s). Same with Michigan - if you can’t beat tOSU then, your seat will always be warm.
Be supportive and reasonable - trust the process all the time. There will be bumps along the road but the process has delivered and will always deliver!
This is a trap all fans fall into. Campbell doesn't think he'd go to Michigan and fail. He doesn't think that he'd go 8-4 and they'd get rid of him. He thinks that he'd win there.

The good thing for us, is for the first time, we have a coach here that KNOWS he can win here.

Anyone know the details of Campbell's contract, how much does he get for making the big 12 championship that's basically a formality at this point?

This was from 2018:
A $100,000 bonus triggers with a Big 12 Championship appearance.

A $250,000 bonus triggers with a regular-season championship and a loss in the Big 12 Championship.

Campbell will receive a $500,000 bonus with a Big 12 Championship and a regular-season championship.

Newbies... all of ya. Campbell stays on for another year at minimum.
Trusting Pollard (who has been my worst ISU sports enemy for a while) to recognize any issues with the football coaching group, and make those issues 'square' with anyone who has negative issues.

Again, I intend to call and increase donations to Cyclone Club and Grid Iron Club...and hope others are too.

Back in their B12 days, A&M did a Century Club and heavily promoted it. Basically; they worked to get all of their alumni, who weren’t donors, to donate just $100 annually. $100 times an alumni base, especially theirs, really can move the needle. We need something similar.

It‘s a tough year, but everyone needs to step up!
Maybe a $108 thing for when we win the championship? Or we're fairly close to Jack Trice 100 year anniversary.

It's a good idea and I'd definitely try to get my friends to donate that. No chance they donate anything significant though.

As a young ISU alum who can't quite afford the Cyclone/Grid Iron Club yet (but fully intend to down the road), I would absolutely be a part of this

It will never be about the money for Campbell. It will be about building something and building a culture. He walked away from a full ride scholarship to pay his way at a D3 school to be a part of a culture. He is wired differently than most. He may not be here forever, but isn’t going to jump because someone offered more money/better facilities.

The difference between $3m and $5m is massive in terms of absolute dollars but it doesn't really improve quality of life in any meaningful way. Once you reach that level of income you need a yuge jump to change lifestyle, plus a D1 coach doesn't have a lot of time to travel the world in the offseason with 4 young kids in tow.

Having a consistent 3.5MM a year in the same place can be better also than 5 MM in one town, get let go after 5, have a year and then coach a lower level or be a coordinator for year while bouncing around and then land another. Rough on a family and you own a lot of houses.
