Seems to be a lot of confusion regarding what’s actually happening on Fan Day at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Sunday.
What we’ve been able to surmise is that won’t be a full scale scrimmage, despite what has been repeated from many sources. The University of Louisville football team held a scrimmage Saturday. No way Charlie Strong is putting his troops through that two days in a row.
The primary reason is that he doesn’t want to go public just yet with any new wrinkles in the offense or defense. Too many people pulling for other teams in the area. He doesn’t allow anyone, including the media, near the field during his daily practice sessions.
Fans should expect a scaled down tightly controlled practice session. Strong is being extra cautious about what he reveals about this team. Just too much pressure to do otherwise.
There could indeed be a brief scrimmage but it will be pure vanilla.
Card Game broke the news on Twitter that there will definitely be beer sales and other concessions. That should keep a lot of fans happy.
