The Jerry Tanner Show, Episode 13 – LSU/SEC Championship

Unstoppable force vs. immovable object. LSU vs. Georgia. Time to get revenge for 2018. Maybe. Hopefully. Please.

Feel like a student again at Alumni Weekend. Sign up at alumni.uga.edu/weekend and come home for the weekend.

Jerry Tanner is everyone you’ve ever met at a UGA tailgate, everyone who’s ever talked about Georgia football by your cubicle, and every message board poster who claims to have a cousin who cut Vince Dooley’s grass. He’s a UGA alumnus, he’s a college football fanatic with a Twitter addiction, and he’s definitely a real person and not a character played by Clarke Schwabe.

The Jerry Tanner Show, Episode 12 – Georgia Tech

The Dawgs close out their regular season with a trip to Bobby Dodd Stadium to play a high school team. I forget the name.

90 years of UGA football tickets

Times have certainly changed since the Bulldogs first kicked off on Herty Field in 1892. From the initial two-game season to game venues to the uniforms, we’ve seen drastic transformations⁠—and tickets are no exception. With Homecoming week upon us, we thought it would be fun to look back at how tickets have evolved over the years … starting in 1929.

Which one is your favorite? I’m partial to the nostalgic illustrations (and $3 price tag) of yesteryear. Unfortunately, the only similarity seems to be that they still don’t grow on trees. But I imagine the feeling you get between the hedges is about the same.

Happy Homecoming, Georgia family, and as we’ve been saying for a century: Go Dawgs!
