I posted yesterday about the unique social atmosphere that’s at the heart of the college football experience. Yet, between the hostility towards tailgating that’s been a hallmark at Georgia since the Michael Adams days and the effort at many conference schools to weaponize the revenue stream from fans who only want to get together to experience Saturdays in the fall, it’s like conference schools don’t give a rat’s ass about the average fan’s enjoyment.
It’s incredibly short-sighted. The more you treat college football like any other sport, the less incentive we have to keep showing up as we have done historically. Yet, you know one day AD’s are gonna wake up and wonder where everyone went.
