Making it rain is about to go horribly awry.

From the land of great ideas that will absolutely not fail comes a plan so genius we are mad we didn't think of it first. 

The Georgia State Panthers just took to Facebook to announce they would be dropping a wealth of cash on their fans. Head to the safest known locations accordingly. 

Here is the beautiful ad via their Facebook page.

Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated gives some more information on this ill-conceived idea and thoughts on other athletes who might benefit from the money dropped on the fans:

Georgia State students will be brought on to the field, where $10,000 in cash will be dropped from the rafters. I was curious as to whether Georgia State basketball post players, who would have an obvious cash-grabbing advantage because of their height, wingspan and leaping ability, could participate given the NCAA's rules against extra benefits. So I asked John Infante, a former athletic department compliance officer...for an interpretation. Infante wrote that since the cash drop is open to any student, then it would not qualify as an extra benefit for a Georgia State athlete. 

So all you athletes, get in there and fight, fight, fight for that loose sawbuck or finsky. 

Come on, Georgia State. You don't get fans to the games by dropping a huge amount of money on the them. You use that money to buy better players like the top-tier collegiate programs.


The cash drop takes place this weekend with an injury report no doubt being released immediately afterward.
