Does anyone know if ICoach is having another public scrimmage this year? My sons enjoyed that, a neat way to get football started.

This forum and social media are perfect examples that most people (general public, prospective students, prospective benefactors, prospective sponsors, not to mention $$ALUMNI$$) do not understand the complete definition of "polytechnic".  That is why the rebranding is a very bad idea. And a PR nightmare.

 

Not to mention the constantly backpedalling Scarborough, or his son making an ass out of both of them. e5142636.gif

Usually the Saturday scrimmages during camp are "open", but they don't really promote them to the general public. It's a chance for a lot of the player's families and friends to come up and see them at an otherwise closed camp. If Ianello follows the same schedule as every other college football program in America, you can bank on there being a scrimmage every Saturday the players are in camp, so if you want to go just blend in with the family members and no one will say anything to you.

OK. Last year he had one at the Info for everybody, even MC'ed it. Unless the turnout wasn't worth it (IIRC the weather was bad). I'll check on those other ones.

There's a public scrimmage (maybe meet the team as well?) event on August 20th. This was passed on to me from a Zips ticket office employee when I updated my season ticket info.

The Saturday scrimmages are not open. The have an idiot pacing in front of the gate making sure you do not look in.

You need to be on the list or Sgt. Schultz will get you...

It's a practice. If you go in expecting a scrimmage you'll be disappointed. They will have some of the Zipfest stuff up in the stadium for the kids. It's the closest we'll get to a public scrimmage event.
