Dan Mullen wants to “Pack the Swamp” for next week’s Florida-LSU matchup

Kentucky’s trip to the Swamp in November may look even more different than we thought.

Every team in the SEC is trying to establish social distancing guidelines and COVID-19 precautions for their home games, which of course has led to reduced capacity at SEC games. However, in the last two weeks, it looks like Georgia and Texas A&M just said to hell with those. Take a look for yourselves.

The video of Kyle Field was taken yesterday during Florida’s upset loss to the Aggies. After the game, Dan Mullen said how much of a factor the 12th man (no pun intended) played in their game.

Now, we’re going to backtrack a bit here. Earlier in the week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis gave the green light for all stadiums in Florida to go full capacity.

None of the teams in Florida has yet to follow through with the recent change, but a frustrated Dan Mullen wants to see the Swamp at full capacity against LSU next week, saying the crowd Texas A&M had was a huge advantage.

It’s unclear if the University of Florida will follow through with Mullen’s request, given that they have yet to comment on what Mullen said in the post-game press conference, but now the door is open. For the first time since March, Florida will have the possibility of being the first state to have a full capacity stadium.

There’s a lot of things to take into account here.

How will this affect the SEC season if there is an outbreak, will other SEC schools follow suit, and how will this affect the games going forward? More importantly, will it even happen? We will find out in the days to come.

    Umm not smart at all. Protect your players and society from covid, don’t expose them to it with large attendance. Florida already has tons of covid cases.

    Long overdue for stadiums to be full. This arbitrary 20% rule or whatever is ridiculous.

      Wake up man, covid is about nothing more than spreading fear and controlling those of you who buy it.

    Wake up people , more are wearing mask than ever and supposedly positives go up and up. I agree with 4ever UK blue 100%. Stadiums should of been at full capacity all along , mlb should of had fans all season at least they will have some starting tonight. Things should of been back to 100% normal long time ago. Politicians playing games is all it is.
