Marc Weiszer has the latest on Greg McGarity’s pandemic plans:
- “We’re looking at what others are doing,” McGarity said. “The good thing is we don’t have to make that decision right now, but I think we would all be naïve if we think there’s going to be 100 percent capacity. …I don’t think anybody’s been over the 50 percent threshold.”
- Asked if he sees a chance for more than 25 percent capacity in Sanford Stadium if football is played, McGarity said he didn’t want to commit to anything and wanted to wait until an announcement is made. He expects that would come a couple of days after an SEC decision on the season.
- McGarity said while SEC athletic directors are listening to their conference counterparts about their plans, he expects schools to come up with different capacity scenarios for each of their stadiums.“I don’t think there will be consistency in the SEC because there’s not consistency in a lot of different COVID protocols right now,” he said.
Sounds like home field advantage is a flexible concept in 2020.
