Thanks for ruining what could have been an absolutely beautiful tailgating day on Tiger Lane, all for your 15 minutes of fame.

yes, thanks for making sure Memphis football was able to safely have a season while the PAC, B1G, MWC, and MAC sit at home watching us play on prime time TV.

I choose to be thankful for having a season at all, even if only 4,600 can attend live.

Did it occur to anyone that this is an experiment, a test...

If Memphis Tiger fan can abide by the rules, not make rebellious asses of themselves (especially on teevee) and there are not an overwhelming amount of outbreaks that are the result of this fan participation experiment....just maybe we can relax some of the guidelines.

A lot of people all over the country are watching.

Gain some perspective you clown.

We get to play football, a lot of schools don’t.

I have an idea for those who are overly butthurt. ESPN is offering Johnsonville Cornholing on an alternate channel.

Okay.... so how is that going to extrapolate out? I've already deferred my season tickets to next year to "make room" for the 4600 there tonight.

I don't know the numbers of available vs. actually attended, but it sure look liked there was room for plenty more with 12 ft. between groups.

I'll just blame typical government inenptitude. I know (well, "knew" back in the day) Jim Strickland, and sure, people change, but I can't imagine him not wanting the best possible for the university and city, although his opinion is possibly biased by political considerations now.

Strickland is a developer's wet dream.

That is the only demographic he serves.

It won’t. During the Thursday SCHD briefing they were asked about relaxing the restrictions if numbers met the guidelines for community. They specifically said no! Large events are super spreaders and the 12 ft SD would remain in place for the season.

I miss being there. I am resolved to the fact we are doing what we will do all season.

This is one of the things that bothers me about the decision. We took a super conservative position with the 12 ft rule. Fine.

If it went off without a hitch, there should be a plan to gradually scale up.
4K this game, 6k the next, 8k, then possibly max out at 12k.


We should have reverse trip wires. Declaring that this will be the plan for the rest of the season is not data-based. Case counts could go way down. Case counts could go way up. A game by game approach makes the most sense to me.

I’m surprised the school hasn’t pushed back at all
