If that is the case then TELL people. The people that show up for "spring games" are your biggest supporters. You are just pissing them off if you don't tell them.

C'mon, now! It costs money to communicate and the department is destitute from the budget issue.

It's a shame. On a beautiful day, these games bring out families and fans who enjoy the competition. This helps to keep fans interested and cultivate new ones. Most people will be bored to just see the team practice. I understand what Carey is doing, but then they should never have advertised this as a "Huskie Bowl". Advertise it as a practice and put even more emphasis on the family events surrounding it. The true fan who aches for football is expecting a simulated game, but this will be far from it.

Kind of like the post someone has on here about isom being gone I told you all that a long time ago as well.

Not a surprise to me, just disappointing - both about Isom and the lack of spring game.

This is the same as last year! Why act so surprised?

Weather looks to be sunny and a bit cool, temps start out in the upper 40s At the start of the tailgate to near 60 for the practice. Looking forward to a great Saturday!

Well you have been heard and they crossed out the game on the promo and inserted practice.

Plus Rod Carey knows his career is riding on this season. He needs to have a winning season or he's back to position coaching at some lower level school where we found him.

If we extend him again then we will deserve what we get when it comes to mediocre results and being embarrassed in postseason play.

Can somebody find his current contract? I heard that it was extended for two years after last season. But I don't know for sure; just what I was told.
