This past Thursday, Camron Gnass, owner of the Lansing-based advertising firm Traction and Michigan State fan, bought the domain name "We Love Izzo."
"I bought keepizzo.com, as well," said Gnass in a phone interview Wednesday afternoon. "But I thought the message of pressuring him to stay wasn't fair and is pretty dismissive. So instead of pressuring him, I thought, 'Let's just create a platform where people can share what it is they love about him.'"
And share they did.
In 48 hours, more than 4,000 messages of support were posted from places as far away as Hawaii and China, Gnass said. He also said the site had more than 15,000 visitors in a 12-hour span Sunday, and it now has about 5,000 messages in total.
