The freshmen reported on Saturday, and fall practice begins tomorrow. During spring practice, IU significantly curtailed media access to practice. Was that a new policy, a way to protect the team from Hep-related speculation, or a way to protect the team's competitive fortunes from people who write about IU on the Internet? I suppose we will find out this week. Certainly, I have no problem with closed practices if the staff believes that is in the best interest of the team. If that is the case, most information will come from the official site.
Bryan Payton's blog, which soon will be simulcast on IU's official site, has an in-depth preview of the offense and some encouraging comments about sophomore Ray Fisher.
