McDonald was not pleased with the performance of his team -- and said so in a letter that he sent to about 20 WKU fans who traveled to Nashville and sat in the team seats behind the WKU bench. McDonald also calculated the mileage costs involved for the fans who drove from Bowling Green to Nashville for the game and wrote personal checks for $60 to each of those fans, WKU senior associate athletic director Todd Stewart said on Thursday.
Stewart said several fans have already returned the checks and to his knowledge none has cashed one. "Several even sent notes saying that teams can have bad games and no check was necessary," Stewart said.
