    Spring game will be game style

    I didn't catch this the first time I saw it, but Rhoads says that the Spring Game will be game style in points and format. He still hasn't worked out all the details.

    I'm sure that there are many of you that is glad to hear that.

    Well at least I know I will get some of my football fix. I guess I'll have to go to an Af2 game or two between now and the start of the season.

    When Rhoads was here during McCarney's years didn't we have the 1's and 4's vs the 2's and 3's with the latter spotted 28 points. I always like those better so there is a little competition.

    Re: Spring game will be game style

    I'm pretty excited for the sneak peek this year. I actually didn't make it to the game last year because I chose to go to VEISHEA instead. Now I don't I have to choose, hurray!

    21 points usually.

    It essentially boiled down to 1st string offense vs 2nd team defense and vice versa with the 2nd team offense getting spotted the points.

    It provides a decent analysis if you watch close enough. 2005 was a good example when the 2nd string O could move the ball but not score on our 1st D and the 2nd string D put up a fight against the offensive starters. It actually showed we had some depth that paid off during the actual season.
