Although I'm sure MGoBlog could probably fund this thing on our own, I hope the big hitters of Michigan football are made aware of this. Odoms didn't play with too many NFLers, but there are a lot of M guys in the league with a lot of school spirit. This link should be forwarded to Woodley, Harris, Braylon, Henne, Long and that crew. Obviously each of them could drop 35k without blinking, but even if they each gave a thousand or two, it would get to the goal in a hurry.
Also - what about the UM administration and coaching staff? Hoke, Mattison and Borges could give a good chunk no problem, and it wouldn't hurt future recruiting in Pahokee either. Same with DB, hello. If Bama can give money to Dr. Phillips high school, then Michigan can give money to help rebuild Pahokee.
This gives me another idea. Name the Plant/garden plot - contact Al Golden, Will Muschamp, Jimbo Fisher, Mark Richt, and anyone else who recruits south Florida, and have them name a plot "Hurricane Football" or "University of Florida" to show the community they're supporting them. Talk about recruiting money well spent. As much as I'd like this to be a Michigan thing, I'd much rather it be a wildly successful thing.
