It’s almost time for everyone to dive head first back into the Swamp. While that may not sound like an enjoyable idea, in the case of the University of Florida, it is expected to be a blast.
Florida, after all, will once again be able to pack the stadium — affectionally known as the “Swamp” — for its football home opener (Sept. 4, vs. Florida Atlantic) and all home games moving forward.
“We will resume full in-person participation in athletic and other activities on our campuses, including fan participation in stadiums and arenas,” the school announced in a press release.
The date set for resuming “full in-person participation” is June 28.

Along with all that, the school is no longer requiring students, faculty or visitors to wear a mask on campus. “Changes include returning to pre-pandemic classroom capacity for Summer B and Fall semesters,” the statement read.
Florida’s football stadium, officially known as Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, seats 88,548, and the school indicated that all tickets will likely be sold.
That’s especially true for when the Gators host reigning national champion Alabama on Sept. 18.
Pack the Swamp? Hey, in this instance, it sounds like a great idea.

Pre-pandemic is one of the most wonderful phrases out there. No way these schools were going to allow faux science to throttle their incomes long term.
Ah, must be nice to live in a free state, as compared to the People’s Republik of Oregon…
Pack the swamp. Lmao
