“Honestly, we practice every day in an empty grass area and pump in fake crowd noise for away games. But more often than not, you’re used to it. OTA practices don’t have a lot of pomp and circumstance to them. So honestly to go out and just play the game would kind of be refreshing, a breath of fresh air, to just let us know that we don’t have to have all the smoke and the fire, we can just play football. So as long as we’re playing the game, I won’t have a lot of complaints, and hopefully if it’s still not returned to normal, we can find a way to make it work.”
Ultimately, professional sports without fans might become the norm when they initially return, creating an odd atmosphere in which a game could closely resemble the sights and sounds of the OTA practices Cousins referenced.
