This actually has some merit and debate as a story. This tycoon donated $165m to Ok. St. sports and there is some debate over how much control he should or will have after this. Like will he have a say in picking the future coaches? Do you guys think this infusion of money will turn the school into a winner in the Big 12? It can certainly build world-class facilities to attract top recruits.

They should be able to lure some big name coaches w/that money, and the facilities will be tof of the line. I'll be interested to see in the coming years how this effects recruiting in the area.
