The AAC is responsible for us having football - not the SCHD.
It amazes me the people who have lined up to kiss the feet of a government bureaucracy that has without doubt made mistakes time and again.
Talk about selfish? Talk about SCHD decisions that are not for the greater good of the community.

We could be like Navy, ECU, Cincy, Temple, and USF and tulane. They all have zero fans. 4500 is better than zero.

Or we could be like every other program in the country that has allowed fans - and use the 6-ft, 25% rule.
Besides, those are completely different regions of the country. They have nothing to do with the downward trend in Tennessee. You're better off comparing us to UTK, MTSU, Vandy, and Old Miss.

We are a school in a large metro, those other schools in our conference are also in large metros. Perfectly valid examples. Vandy is also a valid comparison, they haven’t decided to allow fans yet.

The other three aren’t urban universities, what makes what they do relevant to Memphis?

Half our conference is playing with no fans, at least we get fans.

You consider ECU to be in a large metro area, but not Knoxville or MTSU?
Hotspots are regional - not conference based. Attendance by conference in vastly different geographical regions are irrelevant.
There are basically 2 options being considered all around the country. Either play with no fans, or play with 25% (6-ft distancing) capacity. Except the SCHD must know better than anyone else.

Missed ECU when i called the list large metro.

Statements earlier this week sound like the University and SCHD were very pleased with how things went and may be amenable to adding more fans.

You would hope so. One thing that should be considered is that accountability is a very real component. This isn't a protest with anonymous people gathering in groups and flouting the regulations. Anyone who does anything that is out of line can be traced back to their season tickets. I would think that only being allowed to go to one or two games this year, combined with the threat of not being allowed to attend future games is a deterrent to bad behaviour.
