What change would you make to college football's spring football system?

In this respect (like many others), in Beamer and Foster I trust.
College spring football needs to have the ability to scrimmage one opponent. The players get tired of hitting the sleds and each other and the coaches can come up with non-conference opponents that can agree to play one scrimmage against each other. Make it a home-and-home deal so that each school has to travel every other year or pay a Div. I-AA school to come to campus just like during the fall. You can still "yellow-jersey" the QB's if you want, eliminate blitzes, whatever the coaches agree on. Don't let it become a full football game - we don't want to replace the annual Spring Games that take place every year. But playing a quarter or two against another opponent can show the coaches from both sides a lot about their team, especially in determining who on the 2nd string is ready to play. And it will generate even more buzz and interest in spring football which is a good thing.

More cowbell. Seriously. I’ve got a fever or something.
Honestly, I want to see the same intensity that we saw in December when the team was prepping for the Orange Bowl. Both in the spring and the fall.
