Simple question: Can you participate in coordinated cheers as part of the crowd at a game and intently watch the game at the same time? Or are they mutually exclusive?

Yes. If you suggest you cannot, you are high.

I quietly stepped back in that discussion after I said what I wanted to say, but this gave me a laugh.

In theory, I supppose so.

Practical question: why would one want to? are you dating a cheerleader?

You can. As any sports freak can tell you.

My personal input, I regularly watch 4-6 NFL games at once at the local watering hole, and can keep track of most of the action or "finer points" if you will. To simply cheer and watch one game? Easy.

This smells of JDubbs.

You smelled correctly.

This is a pretty easy one, but I think a more difficult question for some student sections would be, "Should you cheer wildly when your team crosses its own blue line on a two-on-three?"

Speaking as a former college cheerleader (basketball), I'd say yes, it is entirely possible to cheer and watch at the same time.

If you go to Michigan you have to be able, as their fan base are all controlled by one person sitting on top of the scoreboard using a joystick to talk to the chips they all have in their heads......I think

Do you need to look around you at other fans to know when and how to cheer? If no, then the answer with someone being high is correct

We've been doing a pretty good job of it at Lynah for the past 45 years...

I've seen a few fans who got carried away by cheers so much that they were basically missing the real game, but that's very rare and, as the police blotter says, alcohol is generally presumed involved.

BTW: It is very fitting that of the two people who voted for the "mutually exclusive" option, one of them was a Gopher fan and the other was one of this board's biggest idiot trolls.

I can picture Dubbie at games with his personal scouting report/notebook in one hand and a whiteboard and dry-erase markers in the other wondering why more people around him aren't interested in his insights as he talks progressively louder.

Well... since Bonin is the Gopher fan, that means FF must be the...
