… it’s not gonna ding the reserve fund too badly, relatively speaking.
Tennessee’s COA – calculated by the Office of Financial Aid for all students using the Independent Student Allowance method – is $5,666 per year (not counting summer school). That’s $4002 in miscellaneous expenses and $1664 in transportation.
That is $80 more than the next SEC institution – Auburn ($5586). But it is almost $3900 more than Georgia ($1,798), which is on the low end of the SEC spectrum. These numbers are either last year’s figures or projected for the upcoming fiscal year according to information from various websites.
In the SEC, only three schools are over $5000, three schools are in the $4000s, six are in the $3000s and two are below $3000 – Georgia and Vanderbilt ($2,730).
I bet nobody realized what a great deal it is to live in Athens. Todd Gurley made more than that paltry $1,798 with his trusty Sharpie.
Now you can understand why Morehead and McGarity want the SEC to adopt the Georgia Way as a uniform standard. And why nobody in the conference is going to listen.
Knives are being sharpened on the recruiting trail as you read this. And Jeremy Pruitt wonders in which direction he should point a finger.
