08:22 AM ET 05.27 | The cost of tradition is rising. Fans will pay more for their tickets to see the Georgia-Florida football game starting in 2012. UGA's Athletic Association board of directors on Thursday approved ticket price increases for next year, but delayed voting on a proposal for additional raises in 2014 and 2017. Regular tickets will rise from $40 to $60 in 2012 and club seating will go up from $70 to $100. It's the first ticket increase for the game in Jacksonville since 2007. A plan to hike the price of regular tickets to $70 in 2014 and $75 in 2017 was tabled. Club seating would have increased to $110 in 2014 and $120 in 2017.

Two years ago, I bought a ticket from a UGA fan for $10 then went the UF side and sold the ticket for $40.

The Jacksonville Police Department would have a difficult job keeping up. I sold at face value which is OK in the state of FL

It is a crime in Ohio to be a UF fan. Little known fact.

UGA will find a way to lose again. Though I am worried about Murray at QB and Grantham at DC.
