Perhaps having an active booster club, who has a number of fund raisers and donors' contributions during the season. Would help with the increased ticket prices at the gate.They know how many tickets they sold the last several years and how many millions they have made. Are they expecting some huge attendance drop? Its a non-profit organization. I understand having a little put aside. Go ahead and invest some for another time its needed. Besides that, return the rest to the schools. Also no need to create new pet programs or funds with little oversight.. No excuses for not paying rent to host facilities for football finals.
