There is no way we are going back to a full house in the stands this year. Until we reach Vaccination/Herd Immunity there is no way we pack Foreman Field to the gills. I so hope I am wrong, but I do not see it. Especially because so many will not wear a mask. I would hate to be the game-day worker/usher that tells some drunk to put their mask on, that is a disaster waiting to happen.

You must just follow the headlines and not the numbers. If you’re scared stay home. It’s incredible to read some of the nonsense in this thread.
Not scared, just being realistic.

Okay. I’ll play along. How is that realistic based on current numbers and trends?

Some leading experts believe that we will reach herd immunity well before the start of Football season, and many schools are proceeding with the expectation that they will be at full capacity in the upcoming season. Alabama announced yesterday that they expect full attendance next season.

Barring more of the endless political posturing around COVID, I think that it is very doubtful that full capacity is not attainable in the fall. That said, the endless political posturing has managed to turn 15 days into a year, so who the hell knows.

Do you know what percentage of the population has gotten COVID or received the vaccine? Judging by your post you have not done simple math. Also, I’m sure both are underreported. At this point roughly
30% have received the vaccine or been infected. At this rate most people will have gotten the vaccine or sickened in the next four to five months.
I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with. Seems like we are basically saying the same thing.

Keep me out of your realism, please. I'd prefer to make my own choices, and you are welcome to make yours, just please refrain from demanding that your choices be imposed on me. Also, follow the science.

RE: Football Tickets & ODAF Donations
The only way we're not in a position to reach something close to herd immunity by fall are 1) Too many people opt out of the vaccine 2) The South African variant (or some other whose spike protein has mutated) takes hold quicker than we're able to vaccinate 3) The admin is full of **** regarding the projected availability of vaccines 4) God forbid the vaccine mutates to a variant that more broadly effects children, there was some question as to whether the UK variant did this but I haven't read anything conclusive.

I'm optimistic but we can't declare victory yet.
