I am not saying it is right or wrong. I am just providing a reason why

the VAF doesn't spend more time on the small donors. If I had to bet, the VAF has used consultants who advises them where to get the most return for their effort, especially since they are trying to raise $60 million for football.

As I have said often, put a top 25 football team in Scott Stadium and everyone feels better about UVa athletics including the VAF. Also, I agree that the VAF needs to improve in virtually every area but I can't fault them for spending so much time on donors who provide the greatest support at the expense of those who provide very little support. That's life! I can't explain Georgetown but I wonder what would happen if their booster club had to pay for 85 football scholarships and all of the other costs associated with an ACC level football program? IMO, I suspect it would change a lot!
