Tua Tagovailoa (probably) and Alabama's matchup against Joe Burrow and LSU will have one particularly notable guest, as President Donald Trump will be attending this titanic SEC matchup after being booed mercilessly at both Game 5 of the 2019 World Series and UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden.

In preparation, the Alabama Student Government association is setting a zero-tolerance policy for what they've termed "disruptive behavior," as anyone who protests the fact that Trump will be attending this game just might lose their reserved seating.

"Any organizations that engage in disruptive behavior during the game will be removed from block seating instantly for the remainder of the season,” wrote Alabama SGA president Jason Rothfarb. 60 university clubs, most of which are Greek organizations, could lose their seating because of this mandate.

He didn't name protesting as an action that could warrant dismissal, but it's pretty easy to infer that doing so would be classed as "disruptive" and would warrant such actions.

While it remains to be seen if anyone will actually call the Alabama SGA's bluff, this has the potential to get really ugly if someone does.
