The teams that play in week 0
« on: August 08, 2018, 09:16:45 am »
do they have an advantage or are they at a disadvantage? They have one less week to work on techniques because they must prepare for the upcoming game. I have a feeling that so much more can be completed during the off week it will be good for the teams. Especially if they can win.

We have always heard that a team improves the most between the first and second games. With football almost being a year round thing now with 7 on 7 and such, I think you'll see more schools doing it. Play the first game early, take the extra time to revisit technique problems from the first game during a bye week then get into the Friday night weekly routine.

Since the first few games are non/conf, it just gives them an opportunity to see things to work on before conference starts.

My answer is 'advantage'.

I think they have an advantage. Play your 3 non-con games then take a bye to get healthy and prepare for conference.

Not a bad idea. Bryant is playing Benton then taking week one off. Benton is playing in both week zero and week one, taking week 2 off.

Time will tell, but I tend to agree with most thoughts so far.  A loss in the first 3 weeks doesn't count for anything.  Any time you can get a break somewhere in weeks 2-3 to get healthy and fine tune kids for conf play, I see that as a positive. 

I can tell you that for the past several years I've watched KC Rockhurst play Bville in week 1 for Bville, but week 3 for KCR.  Bville has made a lot of mental errors in that game they typically wouldn't make.  Like someone already said, teams improve a ton after a game or two.
