Agreed, that would be pointless and stupid. College football exists first and foremost for the attendee in the seats. It's not a "made for TV" sport, despite the huge media deals.

In contrast, a sport like Horse Racing primarily exists for betting, and so running the races without fans in the stands is fine. A few iconic races like the Triple Crown races notwithstanding.

On the contrary, it's never been solely for the people inside the stadium. The people going to the game are just one part of the story.

Every major college football game has far more alumni and other fans following on TV and internet than in the stands. Before games were televised, there were more listening on radio than in the stands.

To me, they are an essential part of the story.

Hey, maybe you are right and we will see Florida vs Georgia in an empty Jacksonville stadium in October. But i won't bet on it (LOL). There will be a regular game with 90,000 in the stands, or no game.

We shall see. 07-coffee3

How about 15,000 with every 3rd seat in every other row only occupied by mandatory social distancing. And arriving 3 hours ahead of time as people are seated one at a time.
