There’s no sense in having a schedule conflict if it can be avoided, so I’ll join the chorus of approval for moving G-Day a week after Masters weekend. At the very least, maybe we’ll miss the early April cold snaps that have been brutal the past couple of years.
But something tells me it wasn’t the Masters keeping D-Day attendance down under a half of Sanford Stadium’s capacity. This change will surely matter to a handful of people, and, again, there’s no use of having a conflict just to have one. I just think that any increase in attendance will be incremental rather than substantial. It’s still a vanilla and heavily-scripted scrimmage that also happens to be on TV.
