Vanderbilt returns 1,200 tickets, which UGA will put on sale

Georgia will put 1,200 tickets to its Oct. 16 home football game against Vanderbilt on sale to the general public at 9 a.m. Friday.

The tickets were returned by Vanderbilt from its 2,800-seat allotment for the game.

The tickets are $50 each.

Also, Georgia has about 900 tickets remaining for the Nov. 6 game against Idaho State from the 2,000 that Idaho State returned two weeks ago. Those tickets are $45 each.

Tickets for both games can be ordered online (www.georgiadogs.com) or by phone (1-877-542-1231).

Georgia’s next home game, Oct. 9 vs. Tennessee, will be the Bulldogs’ 60th consecutive sellout at Sanford Stadium –  every home game since Mark Richt became coach. The last Georgia home game not to sell out was the Nov. 25, 2000, game against Georgia Tech.

I’d rather light myself on fire and run through a meth lab first. Maybe give birth to a flaming porcupine with rabies on the floor of an igloo during a hemorrhoid attack. Perhaps let a serial killer poke out my eyes with an ice pick, scoop out my brains, drop in a candle, and make me into a Jack-O-Lantern.

Thanks but no thanks! I’d rather go see us play Idaho State, Mars Hill, Georgia State, or Kennesaw State…you know…those top notch out of conference games we plan to play.

Again, you people are idiots. Vandy usually returns tickets, as does every school that doesn’t sell their share. Georgia, unlike Georgia Tech, can sell out in a down year.

Recruits! Why would you come to UGA??? Our current AD plans to play absolutely nobody!!!! So go on to Bama where you can play in the TEXAS DOME and other big time out of conference games!!! Shoot we want even play Georgia Tech in the Georgia Dome much less someone considered a top 50 program!

Even as a proud UGA alum, I would not go if you paid me! Why on EARTH do season ticket holders pay such big bucks to see Georgis lose, lose, lose? WHY?! Don’t you get tired of driving to Athens and far away destinations, fighting the traffic and people, and then leaving the stadium after yet another loss? Doesn’t that get old for God sake?! Heck no I won’t be buying any of these tickets!

Yes the schedule keeps recruits away that’s why Florida’s light weight schedule keeps them way down in recruiting every year.

Georgia vs Vandy,

I would not watch this game on TV if someone paid me $50.
I would not drive up to see it in person and drive home for $500.

Geez, BigDawg, as other columnists have pointed out, Bama doesn’t have a major out-of-conference rival each year as UGA does with GT, so they can schedule a Dome game. The rest of their non-conference schedule, however, looks every bit as weak as UF and UGA. That’s how it’s done now. It’s worked for Bama and UF, so UGA is giving it a try.

Hard to imagine with all the issues that UGA has both on and off the field that UGA fans would turn thier noses up at the Vandy game and assume a win ???? UGA is 0-3 in the SEC and should not take ANY team for granted this year……maybe UGA should focus on better recruiting of student athletes and higher graduation rates….

If you don’t want to see the Dawgs play, you can always go down to the Atl and watch the North Avenue Trade School play in their large 50,000 seat stadium with two names. HaHaHaHa back at you.

They are going to kill us this year. I figured their fans would come out and support the ‘dores since this might be the first and last time they have ever been picked to win in an opponent’s stadium!

To all of you haters that say you have tickets, give them to some sort of charity or Boys Club. Then give up your rights to future tickets. Stop your B@#*hing. Either your a fan or your not. I personally don’t think you are. You know family sticks together through thick or thin, and you are for sure not family. So please leave and do not let the door hit you on the way out!! GO DAWGS!

You people are making it VERY VERY clear who the real fans are and who the fairweather bandwagoners have been the last 10 years.

“Who would want to go see this game?”…… Come on. Anybody who has the true passion for UGA football ALWAYS wants to spend a beautiful Fall Saturday in the South on the beautiful campus of UGA, being with lifelong friends and family, and taking in the opportunity of fellowship. The SEC and UGA are about SO MUCH more than HAVING to be the unbeaten, dominate program. The memories and experiences shared by so many are what makes being a TRUE fan of UGA the best thing on earth.

In a weird, and sad way, I am almost relieved that the current situation is taking place. It is doing UGA a favor by getting rid of some of you idiots who have nothing but words of discouragement and anger to share with us.

Like ANY home game, I cannot wait to set up my tent, and enjoy the newely cool, crisp Fall air, attend the Dawg Walk and enjoy the chills that run down my spine when the lone trumpeter begins the Battle Hymn of the Bulldawg Nation in the SW corner of the greatest college football setting in all the land.

Til’ the day I die….. GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!
