TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — At a school where tradition is everything, the Student Government Association will bring one at the Tide’s home game opener.

Block Greek seating, commonly known as the Greek Section, will be suspended on Saturday.

SGA president, Jimmy Taylor says the decision to nix block seating is in light of the recent events on campus regarding segregation in the Greek system.
