It's a tax write-off and a sticker basically.....

I have donated at the same level for ten years straight because I prefer to give it to VT athletics over a charity I have no ties to...….With that said, I know my donation does nothing in the grand scheme of things, and sure as hell doesn't make the country a better place to live. I have said it over and over again, unless something changes, VT will NOT compete with the big boys of college football ever again. College football has always been a business, but now it is too big of a business and we are just the cool, hipster neighborhood coffee shop now surrounded by a bunch of Starbucks...….
