Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne announced he expects a full-capacity crowd at Bryant-Denny Stadium in the fall.
The problem with USC is it cannot expect a full-capacity crowd even if it allows a full-capacity crowd at the Coliseum. USC does not release season-ticket renewals, with good reason. Sales were down, before the pandemic, and the trend continued the past 12 months.
As things start to return to a form of normalcy in the fall, it remains a good news, bad news situation for USC.
The good news: The return of fans and TV money.
The bad news: The non-return of fans and return of some angry fans.
