Anyone Available For Spring Practice Reports

  • Jayhawk Spring Practice starts this Sunday. I wonder whether anyone who posts here will be able to give some first hand reports from the practices? I’m too far away for the daily practices, but I will attend the spring game on April 15. I can’t wait to see Peyton Bender, Carter Stanley and Tyriek Starks slinging the ball around the field. RCJH

  • I read spring practice got pushed back a day so today is the first day. I think these are generally closed practices to the public so Keegan and Tait are probably going to be the best sources of info.

    Keegan also had a talk with Montell Cozart about the future of KU football. Cozart is really high on Peyton Bender and Daylon Charlot. Cozart mentioned some of the schools that have contacted him about his final year and they include Fresno St. and New Mexico at the FBS level and probably the best offer overall he has received is from North Dakota St. at the FCS level. He also has some offers from some D2 programs as well. I think it would be very cool if he continued the legacy of NDSU and got them another title.

  • What’s the benefit or necessity of closing practices? I look at spring practices as a way for a few locals to observe and get excited for the upcoming season. I plan to be in Lawrence on Friday to visit my daughter before her big spring break trip. I thought I would look in at the practice fields if time permits. I’ll report back if I see anything.

  • @stoptheflop KU has a new OC which means there will be new elements added to the offense. Closing practices makes it harder for those new elements to be seen by future opponents until KU run them in games.

  • @stoptheflop Usually KU sports has a guy covering every few days, they are only allowed in for 20 minutes so you don’t see much but better than nothing.

  • Benton Smith over on KUSports has my back on spring football. He even included some video of Monday’s first practice in the indoor facility. I’ve got the feeling 2017 is going to be a breakout year for us. RCJH
