Check out this take on why Georgia regular season tickets currently command the highest average ticket price for home games based on available tickets at StubHub.
The other thing to remember with this ticket price is expenses. Georgia’s coaching staff salaries went up 42 percent from 2012 to 2017. The data from the last two years has not been calculated by the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, but you can bet it is above 50 percent since 2012.
UGA’s athletic budget is ranked sixth in revenue ($157.8 million) among major colleges with expenditures $119.2 million, according to USA TODAY data.
In 2018, Kirby Smart was the sixth-highest paid coach in the country at $6.6 million a year. His staff ranked sixth, too, at $6.4 million.
Dude, meet Mr. Supply and Demand. The secondary market doesn’t give a rat’s ass what Jimmy Sexton squeezed out of Greg McGarity. (If it did, Alabama and Clemson would be at the top of the list.)
