No UConn Football Preseason Practice Opportunity For Fans This Year

What’s goin’ on?

Players report for preseason practice Aug.1 with the first practice scheduled for Aug.2. First game is Aug.29 at home against BYU on ESPN at 7 p.m.

As you know the 2014 season will be the first under Bob Diaco, the new man charged with making the Huskies’ football program steady, consistent and competing for league titles.

Usually, there are preseason practices open to the public but not this year. There will be no opportunities for fans to see the team practice before the season opener this year.

.While Diaco will still be out and about at times during the month mingling with fans and boosting support in UConn football, I’m hearing he really wants the focus in camp. And he’s got to get to know the team, too. It’s only a matter of weeks now before all he and his staff have done and are trying to do is on display for all to see.

There will be media sessions and we’ll do our best here to bring you the best of whatever that day has to offer and then some. The first two  media availability sessions are Aug.2 and Aug.6.
