Damn, we spend a lot of money on football.

Something’s gotta give pretty soon.
To be fair, though, most of that money goes for concessions.
“Georgia averages between $1.8 million to $2.9 million per game in ticket sales”
Why the disparity? Makes no sense. It is not as if most, if not all games, are not sold out.
All games are sold out. Some if not all the discrepancy must come from visitors’ tickets, since the article reports those tickets are priced differently (according to what the visitor charges us when we’re the visitor). The number and price of visitor tickets vary game to game and year to year.
$1.8 M still seems quite low. Even with 15,000 student tickets, that leaves 77,000 tickets to be sold for $40 each, which is right at $3M. They must give away a lot of tickets to families, recruiting, etc. to ever get around $1.8 M.
Are they considering the “Contribution” that has to be made for the season tickets.
2007 $4,000 cumulative to get 1 new season ticket.
2008 $10,000+ cumulative to get 1 new season ticket.
2009 $4,500 cumulative to get i new season ticket.
2010 $1,500 cumulative to get 1 new season ticket.
2011 anybody that wants one gets one.
You’ve got to put the product on the field to get 92000 butts in the seats. It costs too much to go to the games to see good ole UGA pi$$ their pants. This more than anything will determine CMR’s future with the school. If we have another sub 8 win year in 2011 he is gone. Like Tony Soprano says ” Hey it ain’t personal it’s just business.
