Re: Some delicious drama from down south

Re: Why buy away tickets from USU ticket office?

Yeah, I'm looking at the air force game. USU is selling the tickets for $55 each. Last time they played in Colorado Springs, we got tickets for $15 each, and it was empty enough that we could pick where we sat. That $40 difference adds up quick when you're talking about families.

Re: College Football still remains very popular

These numbers are unreliable. They report 25,000+ attended the New Mexico bowl. I was at the game. There is no way on Earth that there were 25,000 people there, even if you include the surrounding neighborhood that could hear the game.

In the scrimmages, are the plays scripted (I know the situations are)? I'm just curious how much the scrimmages are for the players, and how much for the coaches (getting Ena some experience calling plays in certain scenarios that he didn't know were coming would seem like a good idea to me).
