Scott Frost is not thrilled with the idea of fake crowd noise at B1G games
Because the B1G won’t be allowing fans to attend games during the 2020 football season, the conference is working on ways to create some sort of unique environment during games. But there’s at least one head coach who isn’t a huge fan of the idea.
Nebraska’s Scott Frost seems less than thrilled with the idea of teams pumping in fake crowd noise during games this season. At the very least, he’s hoping there are some boundaries and restrictions on how it works.
So far, there has been no word from the B1G on the matter.
“Last I heard, they’re gonna allow us to pump artificial crowd noise into the stadium. I didn’t vote on that,” Frost said. “I think it’s annoying to have fake crowd noise in your ear all the time. I hope it’s regulated and monitored so we don’t have speakers right behind the visiting bench and hope it’s conducive to at least being able to think. If we’re gonna pretend like there’s fans in the stands and have fake noise I hope we’re actually able to function.”
Artificial crowd noise? Gonna be a no for Scott Frost.

It’s probably fair to assume that Frost would rather there be no noise than the fake crowd noise being proposed.
Teams will attempt to create some sort of home field advantage without fans in the stadiums this year, but how schools will be handling the fake crowd noise really hasn’t been discussed much. Surely the B1G will put some restrictions on it.
We’ll find out soon enough, with the B1G starting the season on Friday, Oct. 23.
