Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards spoke to reporters on Tuesday about a variety of topics, with one being the fan capacity inside Tiger Stadium this upcoming season.

According to Edwards, they are leaning towards 25% capacity which would put them in the ballpark of 25,000 fans. Most of the other schools in the SEC are also in the 20-25% range.

JBE is such a POS ---we are here lake Charles area without power and he sent freaking 250-300 power workers away cause they would not wear a mask... and stating "We have dodged a bullet" when our city and parish is in ruins and looks like a war zone.

This is all about Politics, ladies and Gentlemen. Just look at who wants things opened up.....and who wants everything shut down. Make you own decision.

Remember the good old days of a 15 day lockdown to slow the spread so hospitals don't get overwhelmed? How cute.

If you can see continued reductions in covid cases across the state, I think you could see the limit increased as early as the third game. If we don't have spikes after the first game, then you could see more people at the Missouri game. It all will depend upon the people. If the Tiger fans want the games, then just make sure everyone wears a mask. Otherwise, you just did not really want to attend the games.

Depending on the blowback, if any, from the fans over the LSU sponsorship of BLM and other anti-America groups, 25% may be a good number to start with.

Why not 100%? Come at your own (next to no) risk? If you are a 400+ pound diabetic just stay away.

Of course JBE says 25% capacity, acting like he thought about that number long and hard when you know he just waited to see what everyone else did.

At first glance, it looked like Coach O had a Mike Ditka 'stache going on.

I was hoping for around 35.0% capacity.
