'U' Says It Has A $6M Donation For Stadium MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ―
The University of Minnesota says it has secured one whopper of a donation for the new TCF Bank Stadium.
The school announced on Tuesday that a donor has pledged $6 million to help push it over the initial fundraising goal of $86 million for the new outdoor football stadium on campus.
Bruininks spells out coming hard times at U
"There are not enough stimulus dollars to mitigate the cuts," Bruininks said, adding that the U was contemplating a double-digit tuition increase, perhaps as high as 15 percent.

It's about priorities, President Bruininks, and always has been. Please enjoy free chardonnay in your Twin City Federal Stadium box.
