SEC coaches have complained loudly that it’s impossible to follow some COVID-19 protocols in the cramped quarters of visiting team locker rooms. Instead of voicing his grievances, Dan Mullen took action.
The Florida football team has not set a foot inside the ancient locker rooms at Vanderbilt Stadium. The Gators dressed for the game at the team hotel. They arrived to the stadium later than normal and simply put on their cleats once they made it to the field.
The pregame routine was slightly different, yet it did not produce visual comedy like what we saw at halftime. The players huddled under the bleachers, not in a socially distant manner, while receiving instructions from the coaches. As with most things involving Vanderbilt football, halftime felt more like a high school football game than an SEC football game.
It wasn’t the most ridiculous thing that happened in college football today. Watch Nebraska fall for Illinois’ fake punt, the most bizarre in the history of college football.
