Marcus is a great dude

I totally agree, Watching him in his show, he's a great man to work for, a go-getter, Someone who will elevate you to get to his level or surpass him. It won't matter to him, very fluid dude.

I have not watched his show. But that whole stadium thing seemed like a publicity stunt to promote his show. Hopefully I'm wrong and he handles the job well.

Forget that long shot he tweeted about. He and the school announced this in December:

UM and Marcus Lemonis Announce "Match Marcus" Campaign

ORLANDO – University of Miami Athletics, in partnership with Miami native and the star of CNBC show “The Profit”, Marcus Lemonis, announced the 'Match Marcus' fundraising campaign for Student-Athlete Excellence Wednesday before Miami’s appearance in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

The 'Match Marcus' campaign challenges the University of Miami community and Canes fans to raise a total of $2 million to support UM student-athletes in their pursuit of excellence.

For every donation to the campaign, Lemonis will match half of the total - resulting in up to a $1 million gift from Lemonis.

All funds will be directly used by the athletics department to enhance the student-athlete experience and resources in the classroom, in competition and in life skills and career development.

Lemonis jumpstarted the 'Match Marcus' campaign with a $250,000 check presented to Director of Athletics Blake James at a Hurricane Club pregame celebration for the Russell Athletic Bowl at Camping World Stadium.

“On behalf of our 400+ talented student-athletes, we truly appreciate Marcus’s commitment and leadership to give and inspire others to get involved with our program and supporting student-athlete excellence,” Director of Athletics Blake James said. “Marcus has motivated and inspired countless people through his business career, and we are honored to have his partnership in Building Champions at the University of Miami.

For information on how to make a gift in support of the MatchMarcus Campaign or to track our progress, visit University of Miami Hurricanes Membership or call the Hurricane Club at(305) 284-6699.
