Tailgating is reportedly in question for the upcoming college football season

We still don’t know for sure if – or how many – fans will be allowed to attend college football games in the fall, but those stadium parking lots could be without tailgating either way.

According to Justin Rowland of Rivals.com, he’s hearing that tailgating won’t be happening, at least for the upcoming season.

No one knows exactly when an announcement will be made on if fans can attend or how many will be allowed in. Rowland also reported that Mitch Barnhart said there have been “significant differences of opinion” among SEC athletic directors. So this is very much a fluid situation with constantly changing plans. However, adding another massive gathering (tailgating) on top of an already massive gathering (football game) probably won’t be the safest route if the coronavirus is still prominent in the United States.

We might be doing a lot more tailgating from the couch this fall…

    So no tailgating but people are allowed to riot/loot and protest by the hundreds and thousands.

    If liberals win the election in November then our country is going straight to ****

      They didn’t say anything about the rioting because the rioting is furthering their agenda, curfews didn’t apply to rioters. They will likely blame Plannedemic II on the rioters and use them as an excuse to impose martial law this fall.

      It’s already there Clown. 130,000 people dead because the Orange buffoon sat on the virus information for 47 days. Could have saved 100,000 of them. But he was worried more about the economy

    I see stupidity spreads worse than this common cold virus. Nice to see some folks aware of the con on here. We had some common ground after all. Maybe I shouldn’t have walked away in mid March when most of you laughed me off about the covid horsesh*t.
    Our idiot governor wants school restricted for a virus where kids have a much higher chance of dying from lightning strikes (true stat).
    Looks like the SEC is gulping down the establishment bull*hit, too.

    Irish son, you’re giving stupid a bad name. Turn off the TV and stop taking medical advice from politicians. If you believe any of these mortality figures you ain’t playing with a full deck.

    If we don’t get sports at all in the fall, it’ll be the fault of irresponsible crybabies listening to the “advice” of random youtubers instead of the full weight of the international medical community. Because “Waaaah, masks are slightly uncomfortable.” Meanwhile the entire rest of the reasonable world will be more or less back to business as usual.

      Wrong, it will be because of the sheeple who believed the lies told to us by the government, the same government that told you there’s light at the end of the tunnel in Viet Nam, there’s weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, read my lips, no new taxes and if you like your healthcare plan you’ll keep your healthcare plan. Don’t be so ignorant, turn off your tv and do some independent research and use our brain for something other than being brainwashed by the mainstream media. If you want to look like a stooge by all means wear a mask and line up for the vaccine. Oh and if you want to talk about the international medical community read about the Work of Dr. Stefan Lanka. Dr. Lanka is a noted German virologist, who after many years of work, came to the conclusion that viruses as described do not exist, and offered a 100,000 Euro reward to anyone who could prove him wrong. He basically concludes that a virus as described has never been isolated and there is no proof of their existence.

      German Supreme Court Defends Dr. Lanka. In the spring of 2015, physician David Bardens tried to claim the 100,000 Euros and took Dr. Lanka to the German Supreme Court to try and prove him wrong. Though there were earlier trials, the final judgement at the Higher Regional Court (Oberlandesgericht) was made in Lanka’s favor.

      Let’s talk about the people of the event 201 that had such uncanny 2020 clear vision in October to what’s going on?
      Let’s start with the event itself:
      Event 201 Pandemic Exercise: Segment 1, Intro and Medical Countermeasures (MCM) Discussion of the youtube channel:
      “centerforhealthsecurity’ which in the video description states:
      “Event 201 is a pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY.” It then states: “EVENT 201 IS A FICTIONAL EXERCISE AND DISEASE” This video was posted Nov 4, 2019.

      It is interesting though inconclusive beyond that that the channel spent 6 years with a gap of no uploads until last year.

    Unless you are elderly and/or have health issues, there is no reason to not tailgate. The government usually takes liberty away and has great difficulty restoring it. The silent majority in this country needs to become a lot more vocal and demand its’ freedoms. Trump is not my ideal president, but he’s a heck of a lot closer to that conservative/libertarian ideal, for me, than anything from the Democratic Party. Tailgating is a freedom of the people and if any institution, even our beloved UK, tries to think it has a right to tell us what we can do, than we need to boycott that institution, or ignore it.

      Oh, by all means, explain to us how you have the “freedom” to use property that does not belong to you for purposes prohibited by the owner of said property.

      HINT: The fact that UK is a public university does NOT negate its rights as a property owner. They are allowing you onto their property and can set any reasonable restrictions they choose on your use of their property.

      PROTIP: Go read/study the Constitution before going off like this in the future.

      Freedom meaning the right to tailgate. If UK thinks that it has the right during a flu type situation to not allow what it typically allows on its’ property, because of their OPINION, then strike back by boycotting the games and not buying their tickets. So UK is considering negating what they normally allow when you prop up their program because of an OPINION. Yes, it is their right to do that. But the wallet being smacked is a good way to let them know who’s really in charge. Okay stating it was a right to tailgate was incorrect, but letting institutions/governments take thins away during a flu should not be ignored.

    Time for civics/history lessons, I see…

    1) God or religion are only mentioned in the Constitution and Bill of Rights three times. Most folks get the first one quickly – the First Amendment prohibits government from acting in favor of any particular religion and guarantees free exercise of religion within reasonable limits. The second one is effectively meaningless; at the closing of the Constitution, it makes reference to “the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven”. That’s just a calendar reference; the deed to my house says “year of the Lord”, but that doesn’t make my house a church, right? The third appearance comes in Article V, where we see that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” So, basically, the Founders wanted religion as far away from government as possible.

    2) “In God We Trust” didn’t show up on our coins until 1864, wasn’t made our national motto until 1956, and wasn’t printed on paper currency until 1957. It was also during this 1950s period that “under God” was added to the Pledge of Allegiance, specifically to make us better than “godless Communism” and to force schoolchildren to invoke God every day. (Don’t believe me? Look up Eisenhower’s commentary when he signed the change into law.)

    So, yeah, we were just fine for almost a century without God on our coins, and we did quite well for 170+ with just our “government here, religion over *there*” Constitution before folks decided to force it on us as a national motto and slap on our paper currency.

    The ONLY reason the courts didn’t wipe all of this off the books is that the Supreme Court ruled that repetition had stolen all religious meaning from the words “under God” and “In God We Trust”; see “ceremonial deism” for the details. Think *that* through – you only get to have it because it’s meaningless in the courts’ eyes.

    I’m a Southern Baptist, and I see no need for “under God” or “In God We Trust” to exist in our secular government.

      The reason conspiracy theories begin are due to lack of logic letting kingpins of vaccines, Fauci and Gates, make policy instead of objective minds when it comes to health policies. It is a well know fact, not conspiracy theory, that Dr. Fauci was wrong about his predictions of the spread of AIDS to the general public back in the late 80s, for which he wanted to vaccinate everyone for, and that he has patents on vaccines. It is also a well know fact that Bill Gates is heavily vested in the WHO and CDC. So people who aren’t following the narrative you choose to believe in are conspiracy theorists. That’s just narrow mindedness.

    Ah, but do you know WHY they ruled in his favor?

    “Stefan took the case to the Badden-Wuttenberg Territorial Court and this time he got away with it. His lawyers argued that David Bardens did not meet the conditions of the award , the call for which called for a single article, and David had submitted six.”

    Did you see that? Lanka won on a technicality and was able to avoid answering the actual science Bardens presented.

    This is how conspiracy theories stay alive – and how crackpots like the antivaxxer Lanka keep going.
