So this is interesting ...
UGA is now proposing to cut football student ticket allotment for students from 18K to 16K. Those extra 2K will go to young alumni, graduates apart five years or less, who can purchase season tickets at a regular price without donations.

I think thats a great idea.
Per Greg McGarity the average number of tickets per game used by students was about 11,800 out of allotment of roughly 18,000.
"Needless to say, this has been a hole in our stadium. We've sold tickets to our students, but they've not shown up," McGarity said.
This plan has now been approved at UGAAA board meeting.
Michael Adams said he has actually discussed this in passing with Mike Slive, who thought it was a great idea.
Clarifying some of this: It's not that tickets are being taken from students. It's just that the most they've ever used was about 15K. So Georgia, in effect, is going to oversell this with 2K going to young alumni.
Those young alumni tickets will be face value. There is no donation needed for signing up in the first year, and then it increases a little more each year after that.
If you have questions, I'll answer them best I can after being in the meeting.
personally i think its great. more people in the stands. more money in the bank. GO DAWGS!
Life's tough, but it is tougher if you're stupid.
Is it only UG or for grad/prof students as well?
It's for everyone who has just graduated, I believe.
