University of Florida football head coach Dan Mullen knows what he wants. And he’s being pretty clear about it.
He wants a sold-out crowd at The Swamp for the Gators’ Oct. 17 game against LSU.
Can we get a HELL YEAH! Take that, CoronaBros.
And Mullen’s wish just might come true. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has lifted stadium restrictions as part of the state’s implementation of Stage 3 COVID guidelines. DeSantis’ sage wisdom means there’s a very good chance Gator fans will be able to cram as many of themselves into the Swamp as possible, creating an amazing, good old-fashioned, two-fisted, All-American, star-spangled college football experience.
Or as Mullen told the Tampa Bay Times:
“Hopefully that creates a home-field advantage for us next week because now we’ve passed a law in our state that we can do that,” Mullen said. “Get our students out there cheering on and give us that home-field advantage.”
Yes. It’s time. It’s beyond time. Florida fans, show the rest of this great country how it’s done. Get out there and sweat and sway and sing and cheer and celebrate everything it means to be an American in 2020. Tell COVID to stuff it, tell the CoronaBros you’ve had just about enough of their mewling and puking, thank you very much, and make us all proud.
