I love secret scrimmages. They should do a bunch of them instead of preseason games.

Some schools are doing two of them and skipping exhibition games completely.

It's either 0, 1, or 2; so its hard to imagine a school doing a bunch of them.

Nay, I favor at-least on exhibition. The exhibitions still of substantial and necessary merit. With a roster full of first and second year players, and those returning from redshirt seasons, the opportunity to play in an actual game in the arena, under lights, etc., still impacts positively.

I don't believe for a moment that a secret scrimmage in a third party location, is anything like resembling a live game at UD Arena. No doubt that the interactions between players and coaches, players and officials, and especially coaches and officials, are reasonably to substantially different. The sounds and feel would have to be greatly different. Some things you cannot replicate in a practice style setting.

Swampy: I don’t know what to think about a school that has two secret scrimmages if the NCAA rules make the program ineligible to have an exhibition game. I am understanding that it is a one-for-one trade-off. You can have two exhibition games or one secret scrimmage and one exhibition or two secret scrimmages. My guide to figure things out has always been “follow the trail of money and you shall find the truth.” An exhibition game generates revenue via ticket sales, food/beverage sales and flyer product sales. A secret scrimmage provides zero revenue and has travel expenses. So, I would think that two secret scrimmages would be a hard sell to administration. A secret scrimmage is not even a recruiting opportunity. But, the coach can sell one secret scrimmage as a learning/coaching opportunity. It is my understanding that a coach can stop play at anytime to exercise a coaching minute with the squad. That is a big advantage. You can’t realistically do that in an exhibition game.

Buckleyma, I totally get your point about coaching opportunity; however, I am actually arguing that the difference between that and the reality of a game, is a reason not to over emphasize that style of preparation...because you can never do it in a game. You can do it in practice all week long, but you cant implement into game situations.
