What’s you feeling about attending a game this fall?
How do you guys feel about this? If college football happens and the stadiums are open to fans, would you go? Are you concerned about the exposure?

Just a thought we have not discussed.

re: What’s you feeling about attending a game this fall?
Hard to say right now. I think it depends on two major things.

1) What does the most recent evidence show about the virus. If it is true that asymptomatic carriers aren't spreading it, then that makes me feel some better. Also, what do the numbers look like as more and more things reopen?

2) What technology/steps are put in place at the stadium. Thermal cams to see if people are coming in with a fever? Handheld thermometers that they use to check everyone as they come through the metal detectors?

Maybe I'm naive, but I'm not as worried about the season ticket holders who if they aren't feeling all that great are ok skipping a game because they have been before and will be back. I am more concerned about Bubba and his girlfriend who were given tickets and are coming to their first game ever and come hell or high water aren't going to miss it.

I do think if we go down for games we won't be going to TigerWalk/Spirit March/Toomer's. Just way too many people packed in and moving around there for my comfort level right now.

Me personally? I will absolutely go. Honestly wouldn’t hate for a bunch of folks to be hesitant. Wouldn’t mind a year of cheaper tickets for good seats

Considering all, and being in good shape.... Auburn has killed the game day experience with its continued march toward maximizing profit margins. Those that attended in the 90’s through 2003 understand exactly what I mean when compared to today’s experience. The product is mediocre and I’ve lost interest. Add in the pandemic exposure risk and it is a hard no.

Totally disagree. Literally everything is better than it was then with the exception of a few too many white tents.

I will say the onset of the 70 inch HD flatscreen has made the cost benefit analysis of going to the game more balanced, but the gameday experience is as good as ever.

I think it is a mixed bag.

Are there things I'd change? Yes. Among them:
Reducing the piped in music and letting the band play more.
Change up the AUMB pregame show and bring back the alma mater. I know Jacobs was insistent on having God Bless America played, but after nearly 20 years I think it can be removed.
Go back to having the AUMB sections have warmups where folks can watch them. Drumline used to have pretty big crowds around watching them do warmups/cadences when they would be down by where the recruit entrance is now.
Show more live sports pregame.I remember in the late 90s/early 2000s getting in for late October night games and seeing NLCS/ALCS games on the jumbotron.

Things I do like:
Better, more imaginative, halftime shows.
Out of town scores (I loved in the old days when they were announced over the PA, but with phones these days you can't go back to that)
Pregame/rev-up videos have been getting better in production value.
Food choices inside the stadium have gotten a lot better.

I think it’s too soon to make a decision. South is spiking in cases now from memorial day. All of this protesting will certainly create spread. If kids go back to school, who knows what happens in enclosed classrooms. People are walking around like the virus isn’t still circulating. Isn’t Montgomery bad at the moment?

I'm more concerned about any of this "wokeness" than Corona. If any of our priviledged athletes seek to be like Kaepernick, I'm out!

I'm young with no underlying conditions. I have absolutely no concern about exposure. I'm also fairly certain I had it back in October, it just wasn't known what it was at the time. Was diagnosed with an "unidentified respiratory illness".

Social distancing doesn't stop people from getting this, it merely slows the rate of spread. So, if our hospitals aren't at risk of being overrun, then let people live their lives. If an individual is truly concerned, THEY can stay home.

Well, they are administering more tests than they ever have, that kind of goes hand in hand.

Possibly. I've been to a lot of games, but no longer buy season tickets and maybe make one game a year now. Unless the pandemic really cranks up, I probably would not worry too much about that.

It does. I think most impactful is looking at the percent positive. Alabama tracks it in weekly batches with the most recent week not listed. But I’ve included a graph. Tests have increased and the percent positive has remained about the same.

Not including this to make any comments about the pandemic. But if you guys are interested in following the impact of the virus in the state, this is one measure I think is important to keep up with.

Yep. Which is actually a very good sign, considering things are opening up more.

COVID data shows that the virus is very much here and will be a concern for the foreseeable future, but that opening up isn't greatly exacerbating the issue. It's worth the risk to open back up. We can't hide forever.

So far, so good. Ultimately, local governments will need to work with Universities to establish the plan for these games. People that want to attend should be able to, and hopefully universities can make it as safe as possible.

September seems so far away still. Hard for me to say if I would go to a game yet. I’m having to fly again starting later this month so I’m sure I’ll have a better feeling by end of summer

Honestly, football Saturdays in the Fall always gets me as hard as a diamond in an ice storm. It's like waking up on Xmas morning for me, especially if Auburn is having a good year.

Yes.

No. Only exposure I'm concerned about is the college girls' attire for the games. The more exposure the better.

I would not let COVID19 scare me away, but I’ve gotten tired of the weekend being spent driving back and forth to watch a first down breakaway run be followed by inside zone.
