    Ok-- here is the deal. The HR report has spoken-- and we have listened. I have has several people suggest a Auction for a dinner out with Coach Brands-- Here is what you will get.

    Dinner for (4) at Tom's home.
    Drinks
    Conversation

    You want to ask him the TOUGH questions? You want to get the inside scoop? You want to tell him how to run practice? (he loves that) Want to tell him who to recruit?

    Rules-- I will coordinate this meal, Will take place before the 2017 Season starts--Includes food and drinks for 4 people--you provide your own transportation.

    The auction will last until 7pm Friday May 12th. At 7pm (central time) the highest bidder will be declared the winner!

    Bids will only be accepted in this thread--- Lets get this started!!!

    Whats it worth to you to have some one on one time with the Coach?

    Winning Bidder to donate that amount to HWC... we will issue a 503C Donation form

    Any way to sit on the team bench during home dual meets? Auctioned. Or do we get into university compliance issues....

    If I win, I will demand that the menu include moose meat chipped off an 8 pound block from Terry's freezer. And some mustard.

    Another rule-- ( I can make them up I guess)

    You have to wear a name tag with your screen name. Tom doesnt read the boards but he always hears me talking about screen names.

    Me: "screen name" just donated $50 !!
    Coach: what?
    Me: I said "screen name: just donated $50 --isnt that cool?
    Coach: who is "screen name"
    Me: I have no idea--thats just how I know them
    Coach: you are crazy--but yes thats cool

    Sooner or later Im going to have him talking screen names !

    Another idea is offer a behind the scenes look at facilities including football, Kinnick, finish up with a run through the wrestling office, etc! Have Berhow or someone do the heavy work and give the tour, TnT just have to shake some hands and say hello. For those that have not done this, it is pretty cool to get "inside".

    How much does 5 years of indentured servitude to the HWC equate to in monetary value?

    Awesome idea, just wish I had 100 million laying around so I could win this and have my own office in the new wrestling complex!

    To the winner of this auction:
    I don't have money, but what I do have are a particular set of skills. A set of skills that I've learned in my 22 years as a human being. I recognize my place here. I'm the funny guy. Yea I rack up the likes, but does anyone really know UndercoverHawk? I can guarantee that I'm great in any situation, I could sell ketchup popsicles to a woman in white gloves, and I would make the supper much more enjoyable. When you decide to take me as one of your 4 people you will know deep down in your heart that you made the right choice. To finish this off, you don't know what you're getting, but you know it'll be the most entertaining evening of your life. TIA

    I can bring dessert. The chocolate Guinness bacon cake is my specialty. This obviously shouldn't be consumed in-season...

    Everybody get your shoes out, we have 6:00am drilling and live followed by sprints. Give us a month and lock Kem dawg out. We may have a chance then.
