Exactly.

I'd have to see the numbers to comment further.

He's going to get a good reception if I had to guess.
It will be more than enough of them there to make a lot of noise, it wont take a stadium full of student. All 70,000 plus seats wont be his base, not even close. Politics will be the last thing on their minds during that game.

Also, this isn't a home game for UGA.

Each school gets the same amount of tickets because it's a neutral site.

Most folks actually sitting in the seats got their tickets on the secondary market which means those willing to pay more (Alabama has a much more rabid fan base than UGA) will be there.

The crowd will favor Bama. Might be close but still will be in their favor.

They are playing in their home state, an hour away from Atlanta. No, not your typical regular season home game in Athens, but they are playing in their home state and the greater Atlanta metro area, sounds pretty home to me.

Of course the entire stadium won't be his base. Just the vast majority.

How many student tickets does each school get? I tried looking it up but only found a raw number of 20,000 for each school in general. It doesn't say how many of those go to the students.

It's not. And if you're a college football fan and understand the dynamics of neutral site ticketing then you'd realize that.

Also, I'm still interested in those voting numbers.
