"But the merciless Cyclones would not stop. They would not allow the game to end. We cried, the people in the stands wept and pled for mercy, but the Cyclones would not be denied in their quest for perfection."
Hordes of distraught Italian fans (inspired by British soccer hooligans) take to the streets in Vespas and start a night of terror and mindless destruction and theft. Dozens of Fiats are burned! Thousands of bottles of Chianti are broken! The evening of terror commentates in a giant tomato food fight in Piazza Navona.
Actually, they started out saying 5-6 games, then 4-5, and now 3-4. Doesn't most of europe go on vacation in august? There's a reason Illinois and West Virginia decided to scrimmage each other.
The most important thing out of this is the 10 practices and the cultural/bonding experiences. But its also fair to say this probably wasn't the best planned trip from a competition standpoint. Maybe that's why LSU went to Italy in May?
We are probably limited to taking a trip in August because of summer school. The new guys could only go on the trip if they passed 6 credits of summer school and the trip wouldn't be worth it if we couldn't take the new guys.
I don't really care about how many games they get. I hope they get 3, but the benefits of the trip are team bonding and the 10 practices.
