I went last year when I was down for French Quarter Fest. There were maybe 200 people there outside of the coaches and officials. The Glazer club is open to all, and they put a nice spread and some drinks out gratis!

It was much more of a practice than a game. There were many plays without the D rushing. Special teams had no lines on either side of the ball. Other programs run their spring game more competitively with white vs dark teams. It seemed that we were simply running competitive drills, not even close to 7 on 7 games. But you will see some players stand out, as last year Dauphine's speed was very apparent in the "game".

This year they are only going to be playing a half. Most of the starters will only play a series or two. There will be some kicking game done before the scrimmage. During the scrimmage if there's a situation that calls for a punt only the punter and snapper will go out to kick and there will be a return man to field it.

Last year some of the beer vendors from the baseball game came over to sell in the stadium. Last year's game was also scheduled for 10 but got moved to the evening because of rain in the morning. It should be scheduled at 7 from the beginning and they should have some vendors selling . I plan on being there and giving my report as usual.

Big fan of your reports. They are often spot on!

I second that I greatly enjoy your annual report. It always provides a necessary dose of reality. But hey atleast we don’t have to worry about special teams being an absolute disaster
