Spring Practice [Football]
Can someone give us an idea of the Spring Football Practice schedule and the date of the Spring Game?

RE: Spring Practice [Football]
Here's what I'm told about Spring Practice:

Practice starts Monday [February 16]. The team will practice M-W-F of each week and then have a scrimmage on Saturdays. NCAA rules only allow 3 scrimmages [including the Spring Game], so I imagine the Saturday scrimmages will come later in the schedule. This schedule will play out until the Spring Game on March 28. I would imagine the first week of practice would be helmets only and there would be no scrimmage after the first week. I would also imagine that they would lose a week for Spring Break [March 6 - 13]. Any clarification to this schedule would be greatly appreciated. Also, if any of you folks are planning to attend a practice, please let us know and give us a practice report.

I copied this from an older article about Spring Practice, but I think it is still accurate. "The current rules college programs are allowed to have 15 days of actual spring practice. Three of those those are totally restricted with no contact allowed. On these days, the players only wear headgear. The remaining 12 days, in which the players are allowed to wear full equipment, are divided as to the amount of actual contact allowed. In four of the days, tackling is totally prohibited. In five of the days, live contact is allowed for 50 percent of the practice. On only three of the days are teams allowed to have 11-on-11 full scrimmages, including the spring game."
