Press release from both alabama and clemson.What could be the connection?What schools do not allow players to attend the home football games?Is this common?

"What schools do not allow players to attend the home football games?"
So, if any players show up to a home football game, they are thrown out? How is this monitored?
Is it OK for soccer players to attend AWAY football games?
Can you provide any link or proof of such a policy? or is this one of those "my neighbor's cousin' friend, has a coworker whose kid is the soccer manager and she said...."

HOW MANY COACHES FORBID THE PLAYERS FROM ATTENDING THEIR SCHOOL'S FOOTBALL GAME BECAUSE OF SUNDAY SOCCER GAME?
This is a joke
|September 1 2010, 9:41 PM |
No coach would make that team policy.
|September 2 2010, 9:46 AM |
You cannot go to a football game on Saturday afternoon because you have a soccer game on Sunday afternoon? This has got to be a joke, right?
|September 2 2010, 9:53 AM |
A sample of other schools team policy concerning this issue would be great.
Footballs for fat sizzy boys anyway so who cares.

They would probably bring you to tears just by staring you down.
Football is the sport for homosexuals.

They are represented in greater numbers in football than soccer. When is the last time you heard of a soccer team shoving broomsticks up peoples butts? Seems to happen all time in American football!
Most coach have a curfew
|September 2 2010, 3:05 PM |
on Sat night before Sun game. So if the home football game is a night game starting 8-9 PM, they might not get in by the curfew hour (probably midnite).
It would be absurd of a coach to tell a player thae cannot attend an afternoon game.
|September 2 2010, 3:14 PM |
so Most Coaches will not let their players go to a night game because they may miss curfew.Are these adults or children..in other words ..the players are not allowed to attend the game period...even if they could enjoy most the game?
|September 2 2010, 3:30 PM |
at my daughter's school.The players have curfew,and it is their choice to take care of themselves,and be back at their rooms at the stated time.
not just night games
|September 3 2010, 1:39 PM |
some coaches do not want players going to DAY games the day before their own match, especially in Sept because they don't want them overheated, dehydrated, etc. They'd say 1st half ok, then go home and rest and hydrate.
current Ala coach did this at Clemson
|September 3 2010, 3:25 PM |
If that is the case,I would never want my daughter to play for that guy!This is out of control.
if you only knew
|September 3 2010, 3:53 PM |
if you knew the inside story on what various coaches allow or disallow, encourage and discourage, monitor and ignore, require and request, report and cover up, there are very few coaches you'd actually be happy about sending your kid to.
|September 2 2010, 8:49 PM |
players should be able to attend a football game during the afternoon or night as long as they make curfew! ROll TIDE
|September 3 2010, 7:45 AM |
Alabama does not let its players attend home football games.
|September 3 2010, 9:07 AM |
wonder if they were told that in recruiting...or did they use FB to sell recruits?
|September 3 2010, 9:37 AM |
|September 3 2010, 9:50 AM |
This is a recruiting nightmare.I guess the recruits are taken to the one day game...not knowing that unless Alabama plays in the afternoon , as a player, you will never see a game.My experience is that most the great games are at night..
|September 3 2010, 9:50 AM |
Sorry, I simply find that unbelievable. There is no conceivable justification for that.
|September 3 2010, 1:43 PM |
there are many coaches who don't want players attending games - at least not the whole game - on hot saturday afternoons after training themselves on sat morning and having a mid-day match of their own the next day. They (reasonably) think there is risk of overheating & dehydration (and mayhem, probably).
|September 3 2010, 3:26 PM |
I'm not the coach
|September 3 2010, 3:50 PM |
but I've heard the explanation of why it was done.
you wanted to say there's no justification for it. One was provided.
I didn't say I agreed with it, but I do understand it.
|September 3 2010, 3:30 PM |
Maybe if TB was better than average he could justify his actions.But its not the football games that keeps him in the middle of the pack

When my daughter was going on her recruiting visits (a lot of them) she always asked the question about football games. Out of 10-12 coaches, only 1 said that he was fine with them going to the game. Several said they could go for half of the game. A couple said they could not go at all and the rest tried to hedge the question by saying things like "we are rarely playing at home on the same weekends as the home football games." which she took to mean that they really didn't want them going.
|September 3 2010, 11:52 AM |
Name the schools.A curfew is simple way to manage the players.
|September 3 2010, 12:04 PM |
My daughter does go to games,but it never occurred to us to ask a coach during the recruiting process if a player was allowed to attend games.Every coach showed us all the facilities.and talked about the schools athletic traditions.
|September 3 2010, 12:53 PM |
most allow a half and then trust the team. however, i know no coach that says don't go to the game at all. not even sure this true what is being said about bama. it's part of being in college at a school that has that football environment. the coach has to control it, but to completely shut it down is asking for kids to break the rule...and then waht.
|September 3 2010, 3:20 PM |
TB will not let the team attend certain football games.
Either way, they can all go to the national championship football game...
