Closed Practices Are History

The atmosphere around University of Louisville football spring practice is going to be a little different.

Over the last three seasons, U of L fans were kept guessing at what was going on with their team because everything was so hush-hush and secretive. Almost as if  Steve Kragthorpe considered fans outsiders, keeping his charges walled off from staunch supporters.

That will be changing under Charlie Strong, who has declared that all practices will be open to the public.

“I think it’s important to have these practices open to our fans,” said Strong. “I think its also good for our players to practice in front of people, and for the fans to get a look at their football team.”

One would also expect Strong to be highly visible, unlike his predecessor who was so passive during practice sessions that he was hard to find.
