I took this as they are mad they aren't spending the night not that they won't have a bus.  

Yeah they feel some kind of way because how they feel is why do the cheerleaders & band get to go up Friday. 
 

but the football team has to travel the day of. Even though the drive is only 3 hours. Guess it’s the principle of it all.

You would think they would have it the other way around. But I guess they probably didn't secure somewhere to do walkthroughs Friday in Orlando eventhough they could possibly do it in the parking lot or banquet hall of the hotel. not tryna make assumptions though

Yeah because the game is Saturday night & as of right now the football players are set to leave for Orlando Saturday morning. 
 

but I’m sure before the end of this week that will change lol.

The entitlement of kids(probably the adults) today is amazing.  Maybe the cheer and band raised money to spend the night.   Did football raise money or do you just expect it to be given to you. Oh no we got to drive 4 hours play a game and then drive back home.  I hope Jones beats that ass.  

Entitlement more contagious than covid…..but lasts a lifetime.

That would definitely give Brevard teams a boost if they did lol well Rockledge, Cocoa and Melbourne.

AHP drove to Clearwater in the morning during the covid year, played the game, and then drove back after. No hotels. One hell day. Then they turned around and did it again to go play Bartram Trail. 
 

It can be done 

Something close to what Dillard did in 2020 as well. We had to travel to pahokee they Monday as a rescheduled matchup cuz of the hurricane. We traveled Monday afternoon got back late Monday night, and had another game Friday.

If we are talking about drive time, your example is apples and oranges.   Ft. Lauderdale to Belle Glade is barely over an hour each way.  Plantation to Clearwater is 4 hrs each way and to Jacksonville about 4 1/2 hrs.    Not even in the same ball park for the comparison Nolebull is referencing for the drive between MNW and Jones in Orlando.

I’m referencing to when both schools had to play two games in a span 4 days. 
 

it’s obvious the drive times from FTL to pahokee is nowhere the drive time of FTL to Orlando lol. I wish it was I’ll be in Orlando every weekend lol haha.

Maybe the AD and coaches knows those kids on the team and want to avoid an overnight stay and possible trouble and team embarrassment?  I dont know any of the MNW kids so I could be completely 180 degrees wrong with this but I do know how hard it is to control some of the wild kids who respect no rules.

That could be a possibility, but with the uproar from the alumni ; they’re gonna get their way b4 this week out, probably already did lol.

For those that don't know Northwestern don't play about their school they'll show up and show out.  I'm sure this situation is fixed 

There are some who might say that Jones and Northwestern are just having a little scrimmage to try new things out, see who will make the varsity, generally not care about winning or losing, and it will basically be like an NFL preseason game. How accurate is this?

:D
