Hughes could be worth much torn down
First things first, the fundraising campaign has two years to raise $125 million, which, regardless of your opinion of the new stadium, seems like a reachable goal. After all, the university's Campaign for Colorado State University raised $500 million in less than five years.
No doubt, there are some who may have donated in the past who won't donate to the stadium based on principle, or perhaps because they just made a donation a year or two ago. But, still, it seems likely that the funding goal will be reached.
Consider how quickly CSU got moving on the fundraising campaign: It took less than an hour after the Board of Governors' approval of Frank's recommendation for this alumna to receive an email, with the subject line, "It's Go Time!" requesting a donation. I can only assume that my fellow alumni received similar missives.
