Practices and the media

I've received a few emails from readers wanting to know why I don't have daily practice reports from camp, be it in the Register or this blog. UConn limits its open practices for football, and the media has access only one or two days a week in the summer. This isn't an uncommon policy in Division I-A football, and it's understandable. The coaches have enough worries trying to cram in plays and iron out the kinks in the all-to-brief preseason without a gaggle of reporters asking questions every day after practice. There's a bit more leeway with availability once the season starts, though players are still off limits certain days of the week and even open practices have only a brief window for media to observe. I don't want to upset the folks at UConn by blurting out the open dates, as I'm not sure what the policy is for fans watching practice, but I'll provide a teaser. There are two this week and a teleconference next week -- when the depth chart for the URI game is expected to be unveiled.

Do they actually need a depth chart for the URI game? We could send the starters from Amity High School out there and beat that team. I've never seen a schedule this ridiculously easy.

Should a BCU fan really be calling out UConn's OOC? The obvious answer is no.

The blog runner should just delete these posts.

The schedule is easy, but then again we didn't know we'd become such a good f-ball program.
