The Big Ten is now updating its attendance policy to allow fans at spring football games, as long as state guidelines cooperate. Americans with common sense have been asking for this for months.
It’s about damn time.
The Big Ten updated its attendance policy today to include spring football. So it’s now up to schools and local/state leaders to decide if there are fans in the stands and how many, still have to follow health guidelines and restrictions.

Big Ten will defer to local regulations re: attendance at spring events, including spring football games.

As Matt Brown points out in his tweet, certain teams in the Big Ten are about to be ROCKIN’. Nebraska’s home stadium holds just north of 90,000, so imagine what that’ll look like after we’ve been watching sports with a library atmosphere.
But now that local leadership gets to dictate fan attendance, we probably start to see other conferences follow suit. Remember when Florida opened up completely and Dr. Fauci said people would drop like flies, and then they didn’t? Well, that’s what we’ll see when Nebraska or any other school has 75,000+ screaming fans with decent COVID results.
We’ll finally get back to some type of normalcy. Surely Bill Gates is whipping up a statement against all the fun we’re about to see in the Big Ten? Cheers!
