Reseat Question

RGV Pony wrote:Posted this before, but here you go:

Categorized however you want, total athletics giving was 24.5 million last year. A record for athletics by millions, surpassing even the last year of the second century campaign. Also, approximately 25% of all donations made to the university last year were athletics.

Separate from the 24.5 million number is 3.6 million in capital campaign projects.

Current-use giving (what's always been known as the "Mustang Club" number was just over 6 million. Previous high was 5 million.

These numbers are in the donor guide on page 20. There are no smoke and mirrors...it's clearly spelled out what comprises the 24 and what comprises the 6. As far as "far more information than SMU would ever provide publicly," the information quoted above and on that page are straight from the reports presented to the BoT's and reported to same by yours truly. I didnt get a "behind closed doors only" version to go along with the "public" version.

A couple of other things:
Credit to Section F, as that's exactly how the process worked. At no point did anyone say "yep, we'll guarantee that if you'll pay this much more." The process was the same for everyone. If the AD played fast and loose and "let's make a deal" by saying yep, 50% more makes it happen, that wouldve absolutely been shady. Ranked all the donors by gift amount, highest picked first, all the way down. Leading up to that, town halls, in-person meetings, phone calls, etc etc etc. I probably couldve given less. May have been able to improve by giving more. Stayed where I did giving wise and stayed where I did seating wise. Same decision everyone else had.


Any idea how the donation numbers looked at the 4/30/19 cutoff?

I also notice that the 2019-20 season picket prices have not yet been set.

https://smumustangs.com/sports/2016/6/30/tickets-mens-basketball.aspx

So let me get this straight, in order to keep your seats you have to match last year's donation but they haven't even confirmed the price for the seats you have committed to buying???

Are these guys for real?

2018 - the fan picks a donation before SMU decides what seat he gets
2019 - the fan picks the seat before SMU decides how much the seat cost
2020 - SMU files lien on houses of all STHs?

Gotta love a good re-seat thread. Lol

I remember when Tim Leonard told me I'd have to up the donation 1st to see if I could get those floor seats originally. I told him to blow. Then relentlessly pestured him and the ticket office till they conceded. I had the points too ,because everyone else fell asleep at the wheel. Those are the loyal late to the party schmucke's that got hosed...

Now StubHub once a year.

As i am not purchasing season tickets anymore in Section 104, i still support the Mustangs with my new Samsung Q900 QLED 8K. About the same price of season tickets.

Go Mustangs.

IIRC there is an old saying about 'fools rush in '..... Guess somebody in the AD could actually read and has surmised that most bball fans really are fools .
