April 12: Is There Any News Out Of Spring Practice?

by Categorized: Mailbag Tagged: , Date:

Q: Seems like very little in news is trickling out of Storrs about our Spring practices. Am I missing the news or is there just none? I live in Ohio and every day we are blasted with news leading up to their spring game. I can’t believe that there is nothing new to share with the fans after 10+ practices. Thanks! Eric, Ohio

A: The schedule is different than in past years, There was a break in it for spring break, too. Availability was much different than in the past; access to the team has been less than in the past. It’s different. It seems like folks want to keep a lid on things/changes as much as possible. This is an important season as you know. We’re going to know a lot about this team after the first three games so I fully expect to see the same type of access/availability during the summer. You would see more here Eric but I’ve been down with a ruptured Achilles and haven’t been out to spring ball. It stinks. That being said I think guys on our staff have done an excellent job covering when the availability was there. You’ll see that if you go to our UConn football page at courant.com.

    Attended practice yesterday with some “old” coaches. The focus and intensity level is much higher than at this time last year. Whitmer looked confident (and at times extremely impressive) at qb. The running backs are much more aggressive. The “O” line performed as a coordinated unit. All the coaches seemed quite comfortable in their roles!!
