Quick-Post: Cash-Money from Embree Hire

Just read in the post that in the wake of the Jon Embree signing that the Athletic Department has already received 400 new orders for football tickets.  Taking a conservative average of $300 per seat (assuming only 1 seat per order, which is ridiculous, and $300 per seat being what I pay per year), the AD has gotten $120,000 from ticket orders alone.  That's all without lifting a finger to sell the team. Add in the assumed increase in donations from all those people who said they'd never give a dime to the university until Hawk got shit-canned, and the bonanza Mac was talking about may have already started to arrive.
