Hugh Freeze raised an interesting and unique idea for spring games in Alabama, and the Auburn coach promoted the idea because of what he figured would be significant fan interest.

Freeze offered a solution since the spring games are more of a glorified practice than an actual football game.

“Everybody would get out of it exactly what they want,” Freeze said. “And if everybody’s doing that … Let Alabama play Troy and we play UAB or vice versa, or whoever, I don’t care, Alabama State. People will come see that. You’re decreasing your injury possibilities by 50%.”

Freeze also mentioned that the programs should adopt a charity to give the proceeds. Freeze said coaches would be smart enough to control the event, and not hit each other’s quarterbacks.

“I just think it would be great for the sport,” Freeze said. “I think it’d be awesome. NFL gets to scrimmage against other, high schools get to scrimmage against each other. For the life of me, I don’t understand why we haven’t gotten to that point where we can pull that off.”
