Watching a replay of the Florida and Texas A & M game. Seems like a lot of people in the stands. Announced crowd of 24,079 at TAMU.  Capacity there is 102,733 so play at about a quarter of capacity. Did not seem like much social distancing going on either.  Although everyone was wearing masks.

The crowd at the Alabama - Ole Miss game was kind of scary. Don’t know what the attendance was, but the student section was packed together and  mostly maskless.

The following is Ole Miss’ mask policy for the game:

Face Coverings
Face coverings shall be required as a condition for entry/exit and when moving throughout Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. When in the general seating bowl, coverings are encouraged but not mandated for fans in ticketed groups that maintain six-foot distance from other ticketed groups.


I don’t know how they defined a ‘ticketed group‘, but it seemed like the whole student section was one big group.

If you're a student stuck in row ZZ of the third deck,  why stay there when you can crowd into empty seats in the first deck?
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Florida Gator coach has repeatedly stated this week that they should "pack the Swamp" for their game v. LSU this week.

Multiple Gators tested positive throwing the game in doubt.

Nick Saban tests positive for Covid, along with Alabama’s AD.  State has gone on lockdown and candlelight vigils are planned until coach is cleared

Careful, Goooooooooo ...

I watched some of the Alabama v Ole Miss game. Saban wore his mask properly the entire time....except the oddest thing. Immediately after a friendly handshake with Lane Kiffin (both had masks on) Saban turns to middle of field to leave with security and he immediately takes off his mask while doing so.

Should be interesting, considering that one of Alabama’s biggest games all season (perhaps the biggest) is this Saturday against Georgia. If Saban hasn’t spread Covid to the team and they are able to play, they will be without him on the sideline.

I did not know that!  I’ve only been loosely following.  It is hard to believe if the head coach tests positive, they play a game but damn the torpedoes

Despite the way it ended at USC, Steve Sarkisian is a very good coach.

Not hard to believe. Florida State with Mike Norvell was out at Miami.

Sure. I mean if a coach needs an emergency appendectomy, they’d still play, with the “associate head coach” taking over. Just like if a coach is ejected 3 minutes into a game ... somebody takes over.

Are we sure that watching his defense play wasn't the reason Saban is sick?

Despite the way it ended at USC, Steve Sarkisian is a very good coach.

He did a solid job at Washington as a very young HC and was turning USC around before his alcohol issues. He’s got that Bama offense humming. They’ll still have Saban’s discipline and planning.

Are we sure that watching his defense play wasn't the reason Saban is sick?

To be fair, though another much maligned guy, Lane Kiffin is an offensive genius. His ability to call that side of the ball is without question.  And he was Saban’s right hand man for 3 seasons. He knows how to scheme against Bama. Doesn’t mean he is gonna win, but if anyone can score points against Bama, it’s a Kiffin offense. Plus Saban and Sark realized Ole Miss couldn’t stop them, so no need to stress too much on it after they got a stop or two

It would be nice if he's there. Such a huge game, as the winner will be the frontrunner for the #2 spot in the playoff.

On the flip side, it looks like 10 FBS games have been canceled so far this weekend, including 3 involving ranked teams. Scroll to the bottom for the list of cancellations. Oof.

Watching Georgia at Alabama right now. Compared to what I have seen at other stadiums, Alabama seems to be doing an excellent job of keeping people evenly distributed throughout the stadium. There are a few small clusters together, but there is no large gravitation toward the 50 yard line and the crowd generally appears to be evenly spaced throughout.
