The 2018 spring football takeaway: Spring football should be taken away.
Do not return until changes include intercollegiate spring games.
Or at least some facsimile. A controlled scrimmage open to the public. Doubleheaders featuring four teams and a pair of two-quarter games, which Tennessee athletic director Philip Fulmer recently suggested.
A jamboree format over two days.
When you’ve got agreement along the spectrum from Dabo to Fulmer (!), there’s gotta be something to having a more meaningful spring game than the pablum we get now.
Why, do it right, and I doubt you’d have to get Kirby making any noise about #93k. A big, enthusiastic spring crowd without needing to resort to contractual condom commitments should be right up McGarity’s alley.
Let’s fix this, NCAA.
