The Red Raiders are the latest football team to restrict capacity.

I love how we’re still playing this game. It’s very cute that we’re still sitting here pretending like even 25% is possible.

Look, I respect the hell out of every college football program that is trying to put fans in the stands. I really do.

I respect that they want drunk and passionate football fans going crazy during games. Unlike the cowards in the Big 10, the guys in the Big 12 are at least trying.

However, let’s stop the charade. Fans are almost certainly not coming to games, and they’re not coming at 25%.

That’s an absurd amount of people to put into a stadium during a time when social distancing is mandated.

I would love to be proven wrong, and I hope that I am. I just don’t see it happening anytime soon.
