    What can I expect to see at the spring football game?

    We have never attended the spring football game. My wife and I wanted to know what all takes place, is there a charge to get in, basically, we are already getting the itch for football and wondered what will be going on. Any feedback and advice is appreciated.

    No charge. Basically a "soap schrimmage" type atmosphere if you have ever been to one of those at a high school.

    Uh, you get to hang out, drink beer, tailgate, think about football in the middle of the spring, watch some cyclone football and support your team. It's awesome and I never miss it and I wish we had better turnout but if you are hoping for game day atmosphere you might be disappointed.

    It's a scrimmage...exactly the same as the team does everyday in practice I imagine. Nothing exciting there will be some good plays there will be some horrible plays. The players probably don't care too much as when it's over they get to go drink and enjoy veishea

    You can expect to hear a bunch of people ******** about how awful the starting QB is and how awesome the back up is.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    So it's like a normal game then

    You can grill and drink beer and talk to your friends whenever you want. If you're going to make the effort to do so at Jack Trice rather than at your house, why not go into the game, spring game or not? /rant

    Alarson, I'm not ranting at you personally. So many people seem more concerned with maintaining our tailgating tradition than building our football tradition.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
