I love the way this stuff dribbles out.
UGA is set to raise the price for tickets to football games when the school’s athletic board meets Tuesday.
It is expected to be a modest increase from the $50 per-game price last year, according to someone familiar with the plans. That, of course, does not include donations to the Hartman Fund, which are required to give fans the right to purchase season tickets. The minimum donation levels were raised two years ago.
It was not clear whether the price increase would happen for the 2018 season.
We’ve gone from an amorphous “adjustment” to a slightly more specific “modest increase”. It’s like McGarity thinks if he breaks the news over time, we won’t really notice. All the slow walking in the world won’t change this:
The school is planning this increase after the Bulldogs’ run to the National Championship Game this past season. The home schedule for the upcoming season is not overwhelming (it includes Auburn, Tennessee and Georgia Tech, but also UMass, Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee and Vanderbilt).
Commit to the “G”, peeps. And just think — if the Dawgs roll again this season, look forward to that 2019 adjustment, too. Those Notre Dame tickets won’t fill the reserve fund coffers by themselves, you know.
