OT: Merryman Family Donates $2M to VT Athletics and Pamplin

Not sure if this has been discussed on here yet. (link)

Half of the family's gift will be designated to the renovation and expansion of the university's football strength and conditioning center. The other half will go toward Pamplin's Global Business and Analytics Complex, which is expected to open in 2024.

The gift for the football strength and conditioning project will support efforts to transform Virginia Tech's current center into a dynamic training area to meet the current and future needs of the program. The renovation and expansion will nearly double the functional workout space of the facility, located in the Merryman Center, increasing its total size from approximately 6,900 square feet to more than 12,300 square feet.

I'm guessing the Analytics team will be breaking down some film for Fuente.


Hopefully working on our next Nike/UA/Reebok deal.

If any of y'all were wondering how to get your name on a building on campus, this is a good example

How sweet would it be to have Flippin Hall somewhere on campus? I need to make that happen. Gonna need to accumulate a LOT more money first though. Working for a non-profit might hinder me a bit in that regard.

We could take all the recruits currently committed to big dawgs into that hall to get them to commit to the good guys instead! Its genius!!

Flippin Athletic Recruitment Center Extraordinaire, or FARCE for short.

Which anograms to CAFER

We put the K in Kwality

I think that already exists in Chapel Hill. It's okay though, everyone gets to use the building.

Personally I think the best building on campus will be the athletic dorms and they will be named the Deangelo Hall

I read the title as "donates to Pamplin Gobble Gobble Chumps" and thought hmmm, that's a new one.

No more day drinking on Thursdays for me.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

"donates to" anagrams to toadstone... so there's that.

My goal in life is to be wealthy enough to make this kind of a donation to Virginia Tech.

Twitter me

I look forward to seeing a building with your name on it.

In the mean time, most of the rest of us can donate to the Hokie Club!
