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.

Bogles and Scotts and Glass got a little bit of cash
