Media taking shots at Georgia for Sanford Stadium crowd
The University of Georgia is hosting the Auburn Tigers Saturday night in Sanford Stadium.
The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry is one of college football’s best, and UGA and Auburn fans, along with the rest of the SEC, love this matchup.
With the capacity reduction in the SEC, Sanford Stadium is supposed to sit 23,000 to 25,000 people, but some media members are pointing out that more Georgia fans have to be in attendance than the social distanced capacity.
Action Network’s Darren Rovell took a shot at Georgia on Twitter, saying, “School must have figured it was worth taking risk.”
Expect the Southeastern Conference to hit Georgia with a huge fine next week for this crowd. School must have figured it was worth taking risk. pic.twitter.com/2rrdvb93aq

The Athletic’s Stewart Mandel said that Greg Sankey may have to send out another memo this week. Sankey sent out a memo to SEC teams this week to remind coaches and players to wear masks. Mandel apparently thinks that Sankey needs to send one out to Georgia.
The crowd shots at the UGA game are really something. Time for another terse Greg Sankey memo? pic.twitter.com/9vU0NBUutV

Media member Bryan Fischer also pointed out the Georgia crowd.
Not much of a difference between Sanford right now and Sanford in a non-pandemic against, like, Vandy in the second half. pic.twitter.com/LkvarX3JrQ
