Sign of the times....

In a sign of continuing hard economic times, the UT Athletic Dept. this morning sent an email to all Tennessee Fund Donors (formerly VASF) alerting them that in its initial offering,  UT did not sell all of its ticket allotment to the UT vs. Florida game in Gainesville.

The email read:  "A limited number of tickets remain from our allotment for the upcoming football game AT Florida on Saturday, Sept. 19."

This is the first time in my memory that away game Florida tickets had to be RE-offered to donors. UT normally restricts UF, UGA and 'Bama away game tickets to 2 or 4, depending on giving level.

Admittedly, Gainesville is a "fer piece", requiring lots of gasoline and overnight accommodations. Add to that the less than hospitable welcoming UT fans receive and I can understand how that road trip might be one that get scratched from your fall football agenda. 

Thankfully, the email only offered Florida tickets with no mention of away game Alabama tickets. If the Athletic Dept. has trouble selling those, I'll know the sky is close to falling.
