Easily. $350m to the business school, $120m for the Art Dept, $15m, for BWA, throw in the Walker's and Baum's money, and then all the smaller stuff like the McMillion donation for Retail etc...

And various others that nobody hears about in smaller givings/donations not in the millions.

None of these folks are going to hand the U of A millions to bail Jeff Long out.  I'm amazed at how many people think someone will come along and do that.  If and when we buy out CBB it will be university money in some form or fashion.  Long made his bed and folks with money aren't going to give him money because he made a bad business decision a few years ago. 

People who think Jerry Jones or any of these big donors are going to get as mad as you are about our losing ways and write a big check are delusional.

I get that,  but that's the family giving to the arts/education.   I don't think they care about the football program.   The family is incredibly philanthropic,  but it's to culture/improvement of society.

Don't care enough about the football program to donate 15mm to fire a coach, a coach that is becoming increasingly unpopular?

How dare they! Don't they know people are dying here?!!!

Then ask yourself why Alice Walton was calling the Hogs from the field during a game a few years ago when she was being recognized for her generosity to the school.

Her generosity to the academic side of the school.

Bud's donation for the basketball arena is the only donation that I am aware of that the family itself has made to the athletic side of the school.

Of course, there may have been a secondary motive for Bud's donation for the basketball arena, i.e., a place for the shareholders' meeting.

As did the Walker money.

Bogles and Scotts and Glass got a little bit of cash
