Pittsburg has determined to delete the intrasquad games after the end of Spring Football Practice. There have also been efforts to eliminate fans at football practices. I understand part of the reasons, but I also know that fans must be enthused in order to buy tickets. Personally, I think it is a mistake by the coaches to limit fan attendance at practices. The attendance by fans, local high school attendees, and maybe even young teens would build a base for enthusiasm among those attendees enticing them to attend the games during the season. In fact, local High School players and young teens may become attached to the school by this attendance. I did not attend GT. The truth of the matter is that I could just as well have become a UGA fan except for the fact that I started following the Tech games when Bobby Dodd became coach. Had it not been for that, I could have just as easily become a fan of another school. In fact, my second team at one time was Alabama because I liked the coaching of Bear Bryant. Why would a coach want to dampen enthusiasm by eliminating attendance during practices? Yes, he might not want someone to spy on his plays, but he might be paying a bigger price by limiting the enthusiasm. There could be some criteria and check-in requirements, but overall it would build enthusiasm.
