Who wants to pay more for Tennessee football tickets? Thought so.

New, comment


Tennessee is raising ticket prices for football games for the 2008 season, men's athletic director Mike Hamilton announced in a press release.

Tickets will be $315 for seven home games, representing a $19 increase for the season or $2.71 per game.

So $2.71 more per game ain't so bad. And the fact that even with the increase Tennessee is still only the fifth-most expensive in the SEC. But, gasp, tickets for Florida and Alabama are going to be $70! UAB, Mississippi State, and Kentucky will set you back $50, and if you want to see Northern Illinois and Wyoming, you'll need two Andrew Jacksons.

I'll tell you this, each game better be $2.71 better than each home game last year or somebody's getting kicked. Do you have any idea how hard it is for an honest mule to make that kind of money?
