Great to see spring practice today, but I noticed in the background of several pictures that M is still using hydraulic lifts during practices. I know that Notre Dame no longer uses these lifts after the unfortunate incident with a ND student assistant falling to his death after a lift was pulled over during a storm.
ND has since said that they will no longer use lifts, period, and instead use remote cameras, presumably for safety reasons. (http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/story/14815438/indiana-faults-notre-dame-for-hydraulic-lift-accident)
Does anyone know if hydraulic lifts are generally being phased out as an unsafe practice for FB practice, or if ND is just being proactive in avoiding any possible issue involving such lifts ever again and most schools (including M) stil use them?
