Bowl practice question

Submitted by tbliggins on November 6th, 2010 at 9:16 PM

Now that they have an additional 15 days (I believe) practice for the bowl game, do they have the option of reducing those practices to count towards the NCAA penalties?  Considering they will (hopefully) have a lame duck defensive coaching staff and that it will be a 2nd tier bowl game, it seems like the practice time would be more valuable next year than this December.

This fifteen practices are huge.  The reduction in practice time will be spread out by reduction in the length of practices, and will not elimiate an important block of practice altogether.

This team needs those 15 practices and will take them.

Can't you post point suggestions somewhere else?  These "raise the points" posts are annoying in the posts in question.

Don't gang up on the dude.  These 15 practices are great.  I for one would not be upset if Rod chose to reduce practice time by < 10-15 minutes for these 15 practices.  I trust him to make that decision.  I think the poster was just wondering if it is possible.  He is not trying to eliminate all the practices.

I imagine Rod would wait until next year so he and the coaches could work with the freshmen defense some more, but leave the poster alone unless you have something more useful to contribute.

Practice as much as you can before the bowl!!!!!!!!!! A bowl win is really nice momentum for the next year.

I mean, it's a legit question. That's fifteen more practices to spread out the time they need to sacrifice. They can practice more in each practice now assuming they spread it out evenly.
