Does anyone know when UM's first practice is? Getting sick of hearing about the SEC on College Football Live.
UM First Practice date?
I believe it's the 10th of Aug, but the team reports a few days before that.
Do freshman report early to practice?
NO ONE reports early to practice...
eligible to start practice? I understand from the orginal post the SEC has already started. Does each conference set their own rules for this or does the NCAA mandate it? This could be quite an advantage for the SEC or any other conference. If Michigan could have started already why haven't they? Also, if they wanted to start on August 10 couldn't they have said to the NCAA "look we wanted to start on __/__/2010 but we're starting August 10th instead, so here are x amount of hours back".
It's not a daily count but a session count. You're allowed to have a set number of practice sessions before the season officially starts. Michigan will start August 10th, and we'll have a bunch of two-a-days. Teams in the SEC that have already started won't have as many (or any) two-a-day practices.
Michigan will start later than most because of the 2-1 hours we have to give back in practice overages.
I'm gonna take the lazy route on this one first, but does anyone know if there are open practices in fall camp?
that they're all closed, because that's when they'll be adding plays to the offense, and so on, and of course the staff doesn't want anyone scouting their tricks.
The blue tarp that covered the fence around the practice field has been removed, and there is nothing stopping you from watching practice. And, of course, with the largest amount of indoor training space of any football team (professional or collegiate) on the planet, they can keep the secret stuff away from prying eyes
I believe that the rule is 29 sessions. That could be 14 two a days and one one a day or it could be 29 one a days. This number is set by the NCAA.
