How Much Do Donors Pay For College Football?
One of the big mysteries in the business of the college game is how much donors pay for their seats at games. The ticket prices are public, but donation levels are rarely made explicit. First-time boosters often blindly submit a donation hoping for the best seats (the school won't even suggest an amount), others pay less by virtue of them having a certain seniority.
We wanted to see some of the prices that people pay.
So we went to Twitter and asked you what kind of check you write out for the rights to buy the season ticket every year.
So as not to give up those who gave us this information, we have kept them anonymous.
