Jumbo Package: Greg Byrne, players, and the mayor ask for student help as practice kicks off today

Happy Monday, everyone. Yesterday was move-in and Bid Day on campus, and a lot of folks were seen not following protocols.

Why? We are desperately trying to protect @tuscaloosacity - We are trying to have college football season. We have been running details for 3 straight nights. @TuscaloosaPD is stretched thin between COVID-19 and these details. We will be requesting daytime help from #UAPD.

Chris Owens, who was the most outspoken player in the #WeWantToPlay movement, expressed similar frustration.
