      I think you should mention how many flights $50k will pay for. That could help in getting past 50k to a larger number as people who are into this idea will want to see lots of flights happen.

The Ultimate Trolling of College Football Fans

We want to book private jet flights across the US to mess with college football fans who rely on Flight Aware to fuel coaching rumors.

About

Every December, the world of college football experiences an upheaval as many coaches are either fired or leave on their own accord for the greener pastures of a new team. 

Thanks to the enterprising and obsessive nature of college football fans, it has become a standard practice to track the movements of private flights in an effort to glean vital information about who their beloved school's next head coach might be. 

The Ultimate Trolling of College Football Fans aims to tug at the emotional heartstrings of fans rabid enough to obsessively watch FlightAware by chartering flights between college football hotbeds and beyond. 

For example, let's say Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly is relieved of his duties at the end of the season leading to a search for the next coach of the Fighting Irish. 

In response, The Ultimate Trolling of College Football Fans would charter a round trip flight from South Bend International Airport (SBN) to Tuscaloosa Regional Airport (TCL) and onto to Tallahassee Region Airport (TLH) before returning to Indiana. 

For Fighting Irish fans, this flight plan could only mean that Notre Dame is meeting with Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban (or God forbid Lane Kiffin) and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher. Once the connection is made, the news would spread at the speed of Twitter and cause Alabama and Florida State fans to be on red alert out of fear their coaches may be leaving. 

This project will be documented for digital distribution with both videos and long form pieces. Chat rooms and fan forums of the schools being trolled will be heavily monitored in effort to show how quickly information is discovered and shared across the web in real-time.

Once the project is under way, "radio silence" will be maintained as to not blow the cover. 

Risks and challenges

No coaches could be fired or resign from their current positions during the 2015 season. This would effectively render this project moot.

The plane(s) could crash.
