In February, that would be a pretty good way to do gameday and not step outside.
    Not so good! This Saturday NDSU plays Central Arkansas and they are limiting to players families. The curve could flatten between now and spring. I suspect that may not happen. I believe NDSU has plans of a 8500 limit on spring games. I suspect the Teammakers will gooble up those 8500.

    Sports fans might be more interested in March Madness than spring football

    An interesting point will be that FCS football will be the biggest football thing going in the spring. I wonder how that will play nationally, with all of the football fans looking for something to watch post-Super Bowl.

    Looking at our four game home schedule in the spring. I'm putting up an early number of 20,000 fans - for the regular season. Are you taking the over or under on that? (I'm making the assumption that fans will be allowed as they allow respective schools to follow local governance.)

    Listed below are the scheduled games with what the temperatures were for those March dates in 2020.
    • 3/13/2021 vs. YSU (36/23 for high/low temps in 2020)
    • 3/20/2021 vs. WIU (26/11)
    • 3/27/2021 vs. ISU Blue (52/33)
    • 4/10/2021 vs. USD (51/21)
    I'll go with barely over. Games 1-3 bring in 12,000 fans (combined) and the USD finale has 9,000. I'm open to trying about anything, but football in the spring will sure feel strange but it will nicely fill the void left post-basketball. It will be interesting to see if anyone beyond the die-hards pays attention.

    I worry about getting the field ready and cleaned off enough. A power run game might be a good game plan.

    Yes very flexible. I choose the donation option. Since I probably will be among
    the 7500 based on priority points, I just don't trust old man weather. I am not crazy about sitting outside in cold weather. I done it once and ended up in the hospital. I was concerned about the deductible of the donation after receiving a call on Monday as you did West River, so called them again for clarification this morning. The donation of ticket(s) is fully deductible since it will go directly to a fully tax deductible Athletic Directors fund. I had thought they might put it in the Jackrabbit Club fund in which case since you receive priority points and preferences is no longer deductible. This all matters if you do the long form for taxes. If you use the standard deduction method, different ball game.

    I zoomed in on Rabbit Round Up with Coach Stig. For the spring season practice begins on Jan 22. Most likely the first game will be away. The conference people are taking the possibility of bad weather into account. The home crowd at Dana will be 7500. That’s as much I recall.

    The incentive would've been marketing for all three (SDSU, JMU, and the Twins/Target Field) on a site that's hosted D1 and DIII games. As for opting for a HS or college field, those would be less likely to have the infrastructure to support broadcast media.

    You may have noticed I mentioned it being unlikely because JMU is scheduled to play the Tarheels on 9/19 anyway. My point was that it'd be more likely JMU would play there than traveling to Brookings.

    Having the CAA cancel their 2020 season is an awfully big domino to fall for the FCS season. James Madison and Villanova were both projected to be top 10 teams. If there's a season, there will be an asterisks for the champion.

    But wait, there's more to this story...

    While the CAA has cancelled fall conference competitions, not all schools have confirmed that they're ready to cancel their season. James Madison reported Friday, after the CAA announcement that they're still exploring options. "we are currently looking at how to rebuild a schedule for the Fall season while following health and safety protocols and guidance." While JMU is exploring all options, I'd be interested to see if they'd be willing to take a chartered flight to Brookings on September 19th to play the Jackrabbits? If they are serious about not walking away from their season, they will need to look at safe venues to play. I'm also sure that Justin and the staff would have to do their due diligence to insure the safety of our team with bringing a school from the east coast to Brookings.

    I just want to confirm that this is not necessarily in the works, just my curiosity at work.
    That implies the ACC canceled non-conference games, as JMU is scheduled to play UNC on 9/19.

    Let's really spice things up and assume that does happen. Rather than asking JMU to travel to Brookings, why not play at Target Field with no fans. Twins are in Chicago from 9/16-9/20, so site is theoretically available.
