The scrimmage on Saturday  August 14th would be worthwhile attending. I really enjoyed the scrimmage at USF during the spring. I presume they would again set up bleacher seating for the public.

Due to the current construction of the Frank and Carol Morsani Practice Fields on the USF campus, Holtz and the Bulls will practice, prepare, study and reside at the 67-acre sports and conference center, located about 140 miles southeast of their Tampa, Fla., campus.

VBSV is a premier team building venue with the versatility to host a variety of sports, as all five of its full-sized baseball fields can be transformed for multi-sport use. Other practice fields and training areas can be utilized for specialty training, ensuring more time to hone individual and team skills.

Among its other amenities are 89 hotel-style villas; two weight rooms; a training room and hydrotherapy area; conference center with over 14,000 square feet of meeting room space; full-service or cafeteria style dining facility with the ability to customize menus; lounge; competition-size swimming pool; basketball court; and tennis courts.

Several NFL clubs have utilized the facility, including the New Orleans Saints who held their training camps at it in 1974 and from 1976-84.

The University of Miami football team trained at VBSV before their 1992 regular season opener because of the damage Hurricane Andrew caused to southeast Florida.  The Ohio State Buckeyes used the facility in preparation for their 1995 Citrus Bowl game in Orlando, Fla.

That practice schedule has them practicing at all times of the day. That is perfect preparation.

I'd like to take a couple weeks off and hit up that facility.

Working out all day, eating, sleeping. Sounds like a resort.

Of course, I'd probably throw booze into the mix.
