There are probably some here who would rather hit me with a brick than "Buy a Buysse Brick" but I implore each and every one of you to dig into your pocket and buy a brick (beginning at just $135) if you agree with any of the following reasons to do so:
1) the softball team won a Championship in 2019 and considering their track record, that's an amazing accomplishment. During the incredible run I had the opportunity to talk to many of the players and coaches and I can tell you -- they were on a mission. They love each other and played as a team and left it all on the field. They defined college sports the way it should be and we should be very proud of them.
2) as always the softball team carries itself proudly in the classroom and off the field
3) this is the first "test case" of selling bricks as an Athletic Fundraiser to help elevate the entire Athletic Department. After this effort goes well, there will be more elaborate projects upcoming related to Calihan Hall and the Soccer Field. So we need to make this one a success and set an example that we can do this successfully!!
4) even if softball isn't your sport, this is a way to immortalize your family, or someone who means something to you, or just cement your legacy as part of the Titan Family
5) Mike McGill has done a TREMENDOUS job so far in this effort. Kudos to Mike and everyone on the Titan Club Board for getting this started
6) and finally, it doesn't matter what you think of me -- if you have fond memories of Roger and Millie Buysse, buy a brick (or two) PLEASE!!!!
