UGA fans should pay UGA prices for returned tickets

As the Banner Herald notes, Georgia Tech has returned about 2,000 tickets for its visit next month to Sanford Stadium.

You can buy one for $95, the price we charge Tech fans, a price based largely on the price they charge us for games in Atlanta.

Returned tickets should be available to UGA fans at the normal home ticket price of $45, not the price we charge other fan bases.

I feel certain we can handle the $100,000 loss. I feel certain we can make relatively sure, at least to the extent we do for regularly priced tickets now, that only UGA people get these tickets.

It is not right to charge Georgia fans away team prices, and particularly not for garbage seats in the Tech Deck.
