Preseaon games in NCAA

Add topic

Post

With college football starting a four team playoff this season and teams starting to be more picky about who they schedule now to especially the FCS schools. So would you like to see a college football preseason where we could go to schools like Alabama, Georgia, Wisconsin. I would still like to see the payday games obviously but have them count as preseason.

Interesting thought.  The NCAA would have to remove restrictions around how much time the coaches can spend with the players.  My concern would be more towards injuries in the preseason affecting the outcome of a conference title and bowl bids.

That all being said, considering recent rulings by the NCAA, I'm sure this will be the next step for the Power 5.

I think if it's going to happen, it would have to be FBS vs. FCS (which wouldn't be a bad thing).

Hosting Bethune, Stetson, Jacksonville or Ave Maria (in a few years) would put some people in the stands two weeks before the season kicked off. Keep it informal. No special teams, coaches on the field, etc.

I agree and if it was going to happen that be the way to do it, but so many schools now are starting camps around the end of july and beginning of August, and I know after a while many players hate hitting each other and go against other opponents but that is my opinion.
