New Georgia-Florida contract almost done

Nice perks.

The key provision of the deal is the same as in the current contract: Georgia and Florida will get about 41,000 tickets apiece each year to sell to their fans.  Agreement also has been reached on several changes — all outlined to the athletic board before its vote last month — that will make the new deal more lucrative for Georgia and Florida.

Jacksonville will pay for three private 50-seat planes to fly the Bulldogs directly from Athens and back, starting with next year’s game. Each school also will receive $50,000 from Jacksonville to offset the cost of hotel rooms and meals, will be allotted 1,500 parking spots on game days (up from 1,000) and will get a larger share of the money from potential marketing deals related to the game.

And with due apologies to Martha Zoller who somehow thinks Georgia will win, I’m a realist enough to know that won’t happen this year.

Sigh.

    I guess I am a pessimist when it comes to football, but I am worried. The Gators have been the cause of much anxiety in my life this fall.

    GO GATORS!
