I've never seen this before, but I haven't lived through a global pandemic yet, sooooo it makes sense.
SMU is known to get rowdy. It's a private school known for it's partying in Texas. Should they give a shit about COVID? Yes. Will every single kid at SMU give a shit about COVID? Absolutely not.
As we can see in the photo here, there was not a lot of social distancing to be found. I mean it's the ultimate brad/chad photo above, just a bunch of guys being dudes throwing beers at a football game. I'd love it if we weren't in the middle of battling COVID.
