Mississippi governor bans tailgating, limits stadium crowds

Mississippi governor Tate Reeves is not a popular man right now after he shut down tailgating this fall with an executive order.

“I know this will not be popular,” Reeves said of the decision to ban tailgating. “It’s no fun. I’ll miss them terribly myself. But it’s better than other states prohibiting football altogether. I’d still rather be in the SEC with no tailgates than in the PAC-12 or Big 10 with no football.”

Touché. But good luck telling that to everyone in Oxford, Mississippi; home of the Grove. The SEC’s favorite tailgating spot, along with Mississippi State’s inferior setup in Starkville, are the first in the conference to close, all thanks to the governor.

In that same order, Reeves limited stadiums to 25% fan capacity with social distancing between households.

But tailgating, that one won’t sit well.

      It would seem RB is not the worst place to lose a guy, for most teams.

    There should be no football unless one of two things happen: there is a vaccine or Dr. Fauci approves. It’s too dangerous.
