    How was the attendance last night vs FSU? Packed?

    I was thinking the attendance for the USF series was less than I expected given our win streak. But it was cold! Windy cold - biting! And that kept #’s down. Plus, I wonder if people are just not risking it with the corona scare.

    any word around the SEC or from the folks in Tallahassee about a drop off in attendance?

    Also, ...
    One new in-game practice may need to be suspended:
    In the fifth inning they’ve started getting fans to high-five other fans around them. :) might need to change it to an elbow bump, or a namaste bow. ;)

    Lots of fans at the game last night. Covid-19 might have affected the Gator bats.
