I wonder if Reischel would be allowed to view the scrimmage… I’m not sure how closed these scrimmages actually are.


#3

Maybe I could sneak in you’re saying? It’s Halloween, I’ll dress up as a member of the team and blend right in. :slight_smile:

Thanks for posting, noobd.

you could dress up as a black curtain or an empty fat cat seat


#6

Reischel wouldn’t be able to attend the scrimmage, FWIW.


#7

They are VERY closed. No one outside of the athletic department (other than the personnel needed to conduct the scrimmage, i.e. refs, etc) is allowed to be present.

Is this the case with every program? If so why do you suppose it is? The intense secrecy seems a little absurd.

If this wasn’t the case, Kentucky would find some loophole to get 19,000 into it.


#10

I’m guessing the secrecy has something to do with scouting, to keep upcoming teams on the schedule from wiggling their way in?

I really don’t know to be honest… just my initial thought.


#11

Isn’t it an NCAA rule? Don’t think you can have exhibition games against other D1 schools. So you have to have closed scrimmages. They must be closed to the public and media. As Lar stated, only people allowed to attend are those critical to the event – refs, etc. You technically can’t keep score, but I think the home team is allowed to keep stats – just can’t release them to the public. Seems odd that only the home team can do that, so not sure if that is really true. I also read that players on “Official” visits may attend – “unofficial visitors” are not permitted to attend. Not sure if that is true or not either.


#12

I think it is an NCAA rule now that you say so… but I am still curious what the point of it is.


#13

I believe the games are video taped as well, or can be, for instructional purposes.


#14

what is the purpose of these closed door scrimmages? is this the first year with closed door scrimmages?

Nope, we have one a year for the past few years. It allows the team to see where it’s at against a fellow D1 opponent.

We played @ Duquesne


#18

What strikes me as particularly odd is that we have all of this secrecy about these games and yet a website is listing the 60+ that are coming up.


#19

They played these scrimmages in the late 80s. One year was George Mason in the South Gym at Rec Hall. Another was American at PS Harrisburg. They were closed, maybe 20 or so people in the gym outside the players and coaches.

It’s the NCAA rule.
