It’s also a straight yes or no deal.
As always, comments are welcome.

Nah. Saving up my stimulus loans to buy a Lamborghini. Can’t spare the coin…

Loans? Is that what the Fed told you these stimulus checks were? Damn dirty feddies.
I am a critical care specialist, and I know a little about epidemiology. I have been working in the hospitals and ICUs since the pandemic started, and I know what Covid does to people. I love college football, but there is no way my family or I would attend any event with more than 10 people until the virus is under better control. I have seen too much disease and death, and I understand the risks. I believe the season should be cancelled or postponed until things are better controlled, perhaps in the spring. School and sports this fall are likely to add fuel to an already raging fire.

As of now, Georgia / Athens does not meet the criteria in the White House’s conditions for reopening -https://www.whitehouse.gov/openingamerica/
Who knows what things will look like in 30 days? There is so much confusion and uncertainty, I’ll stay away if only to make sure I’m not one who is spreading the disease. If we get to Phase II, I’ll go, wear a mask and social distance, even though the recommendation then is still no groups over 50.

I voted no but I’m also someone with a pre-existing respiratory condition, asthma. It’s typically only triggered by allergies, but I wouldn’t want to take any chances. I’m also someone who only attends a game in-person once every few years, so not going to one this season isn’t exactly a radical change for me.
Hoping the UGAA will do a poll like this one, with DAWG season ticket holders. Anyone who doesn’t want to attend any specific game gets ticket money and pro-rated Hartman Fund contribution for that particular game applied to next season. Those who do want to attend can be spread out through the stadium.
‘Hoping’ is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. I voted no, but I can see that if there was limited attendance it might not be that dangerous for the spectators who act responsibly in an open air venue. I just can’t see that there would be that many people acting responsibly, and I don’t think they can do enough testing to make football safe for the players.
Yes, but only the alabama game. I’m on a two game winning streak at bds. You can’t fuck with a winning streak.
Not at Sanford Stadium, but mostly due to the fact that there will STILL be no hot water, soap or paper towels in the bathrooms…
And Greg will ensure the Girl Scouts are there manning the mask & hand sanitizer stations! (Nothing against the Girl Scouts, mind you)
I won’t go to a noon start in September wearing a mask for hours on end. I would go to a night game later in the year.
Probably not, unless there was some sort of medical breakthrough or the tickets were just too cheap to pass up.
Clearly a Texas grad felt it was necessary to create a bar chart for this
I’m very much a no (especially indoor games like UVA and the SECCG, or any games in FL), barring some big medical breakthroughs (a cheap and plentiful treatment that limits it to mild symptoms in 99.999% of infected, or a vaccine).
No because people that donated to most, students and longer tenured ticket holders deserve to go before me. The idea the Athletic Department’s definition of fair will be a joke
Anyone can go just remember to inject disinfectant when you get home.
Not a chance. We need much better treatments and/or a good vaccine before I’m joining any crowd again. Regardless of the event.
I said yes, but they would need to reduce the price, clean the bathrooms, and get rid of the piped in music. I wonder if they’ll still play Souldja Boy’s Superman “song?” You know, since we are so woke nowadays.
Superman that Ho
No, I will not. Being around a 100k people scream at the top of their lungs exhaling does not sound like a good place to be.
If it happens I can watch the SEC make questionable calls with the DVR to review them from the comfort of my Lay Z Boy with a beer that may have cost $10 but at least it was a high gravity bomber.
I have been out and about since this stuff started, no issues..eat more dirt.
I already had the rona so hell yes because I am apparently totally invincible
I’d go in a heart beat – but not with my wife. I would need to find someone equally as stupid as me – that’s not her.
I’m in if they let me. Let us choose!
I’d totally go. The poll tells me that Michigan did the right thing with the ticket holders. Roll everything to next year. Sell spread out tickets to single games this year based on cumulative score. Anything else will be a mess.
I wouldn’t go near a college football game this year, mainly because I know how college football fans and students act when they are drunk. This coming from a guy who went to Epcot yesterday (Eerily empty, everyone wearing masks in the FL heat and humidity, and everyone keeping away from each other for the most part) and flew to the other side of the country for a two week business trip earlier this month.
(Off-Topic) Just curious, as I haven’t flown commercially since the COVID-19 outbreak, I’m interested to hear what airline and what you thought of their restrictions/procedures, etc.
Flew Delta from Orlando to Bozeman and back with some lengthy layovers. Everyone is wearing masks and the middle seats are blocked until the end of September (other airlines are back to full capacity). Service is limited to a bag of snacks and a bottled water. Only saw one person have to be told to put their mask on just after boarding. Boarding and deplaning are quick and because the planes are at least 1/3 empty their is plenty of overhead bin space. I felt like everyone was being extra courteous during my travels and the experience was pleasant enough that I’ll be flying again for vacation in a couple of weeks. Expect the airports to be uncrowded with lots of stuff closed. Hub airports will still have restaurants, but non-hubs will may not.
Thanks for the info. Sounds like Delta has a pretty good handle on things.
If they let me in I’m going
I wish there were more caveats to your question. I voted No because my fan experience would be disappointing. No tailgate, No removing masks, No thank you. ( not advocating mask etiquette just Pointing out wearing a face mask to a game is like listening to your AirPods during a music performance)
