Will Gamecocks have a more open spring practices like coach Spurrier had here?

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm wrong here, but I thought it was Spurrier who started shutting them down the last couple of years of his stay here because fans and websites were filming practices and posting them on line and in social media.  I don't know how you would enforce a no filming policy if practices were open back up.

I think this was for spring practices, but not for the spring game.

They could handle the spring game similar to the way actual games were handles. socially distanced throughout the stadium. 

Sell Tickets for $5 (first to a GCC members) until 20% capacity is reached. Charging (minimally) for a ticket would keep the demand down slightly and cover any costs above the normal spring game budget because of the added security and admin work involved. If Any money is profited after those expenses it should be donated to a good cause that is decided by the outcome of the game. For Example, If Garnett wins, the proceeds to go Racial Injustice. If the Black team wins, it would go to a children's hospital or something.

I'm not sure that the NCAA would allow something like that, but I'd be all for it!

Yea....he'd have some open practices then seems the rest were closed. Also, mostly preseason.

I would think practices would be just one more thing Beamer would be tight-lipped about.

As long as we win, I'm okay with that if it happens.
