Love that its so spread out.
Gives KB & his offensive staff plenty of time between practices to tweek the new offense via film etc.

Has any UH coach ever held practices after the spring game? That’s a new one to me.

Can’t wait to see King and Smith on the field…and I think our new incoming quarterback will be available also, right?


I like the two practices after the scrimmage. Correct those errors right away insteading of letting them sit for months.

I agree. I also like them spread out since it allows more recovery time for the bodies after contact. Less chance for minor nagging injuries.

That’s a fun idea, but they better have a full training staff on site, or at least a shuttle service to transport the pulled hamstrings back to their cars.

Back when freshmen weren’t eligible and they had freshmen teams, the Purple – Gold game at LSU was between the freshmen team and the varsity, I think including graduating seniors. They were pretty good games. I went to the game when Billy Cannon and Johnny Robinson were freshmen and Jimmy Taylor was a senior. Tiger Stadium was sold out, but it "only " held 65K then.


Thank you for sharing. That’s impressive and shows you the two worlds of college football we live in. 65k for a scrimmage and we can’t get fans to show up for big games.

There’s a pretty good thread about that on twitter right now between Pezman, Ted Pardee, Mike Holley and a few other alums. Pretty funny stuff.

So does that mean we will have to sit on the 200 level and up? i wonder why they closed the other sections. Damage maybe to the seats unless im reading that wrong?

I believe it means that everyone will have to sit in the 100 sections and that 200 and 300 sections will be closed off.
