McGarity confirmed yesterday that the attendance plans for the Cocktail Party won’t change, despite Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ invitation to fill the stadium.
That caps a disappointing week for Dan Mullen, who foolishly sought a scapegoat — besides third-and-Grantham, I mean — to explain his team’s loss at Texas A&M and came up with fan attendance.
Meanwhile, a certain other SEC head coach wasn’t having any of that nonsense.
Florida coach Dan Mullen, whose staff he said Wednesday had two assistants test positive, had called for Florida’s “Swamp” to be packed for Saturday’s game before it was postponed.
“He respects the importance of listening to the medical professionals,” Stricklin told ESPN.com. “Coaches sometimes say things that are outside of their area of expertise. … Dan is really good at calling ball plays.”
Georgia coach Kirby Smart was asked Wednesday if he would be OK with the attendance increasing in Jacksonville or staying at about 25 percent.
“I’d have to say that’s an SEC decision as a conference,” said Smart, whose team plays at Alabama Saturday. “I’ve got a lot more on my plate right now than thinking about that.”
