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.
