    I did ask our ticket office about the refund policy and they said that if the game gets canceled, they'd be fully refunded. Personally, I'm thinking of holding off a little bit longer. Unfortunately still so much uncertainty out there. I do have a hotel room booked, but there's no cancellation fee there. Been tracking flight costs, but can't bring myself to book just yet.

    That's good to hear!!

    Oh yea I'm not booking until they say it's a go, and I was't going to until around July anyway. I've decided to make a long trip out of this and take a whole week off work, and visit 5 new to me states total. S/N Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho. I will use Southwest for the return flight home and use miles there. I recently did a credit card with them and the sign up bonus with a minimum spend was enough for 3+ round trip flights, and about to hit another bonus for another 3 or so flights.

    Wyoming is beautiful. Spent a week in Jackson Hole and the Grand Teton National park a couple of years ago.

    +1, it’s getting time to ease up on the “limitations”, let these YOUNG people play football and let those that choose to go watch them play, watch them play.

    This game wont happen. If there is football they will keep it more regionalized the best they can, especially non conference cross country trips.

    this is part of the goofy limitations I'm talking about. Lets get on with it. I'll give you another example of "goofy", out at GS golf course, after your round you are to toss your pencils in a bin so they can sanitize them. The pencil I used to keep score can not be touched by another human in fear that they will catch the virus and die.

    IIRC Boise shut their men's wrestling program down to add baseball. They're going to try to avoid shutting that program down after they played less than half of 1 season if it's possible. If this were the year they were coming to Statesboro they'd probably be more inclined to get out of the game.

    Do you mind posting the link to that conversation? I think a few of us would like to follow that conversation and the Boise fans' feedback on the area and what not.

    They do that because it's a fact.

    People really do catch the virus that way. Nearly 2M Americans have.

    If they are going to make such large upheavals in everyone's schedules, they are quickly running out of time to figure that out.
