UM Football Opens Up

The University of Miami football team opened its practice up to UM students and employees today. The practice was shortened due to storms in the area. Al Golden’s response? The team’s next practice…scheduled for Thursday…will also be open to students and employees.

In his first few months on the job Golden is making one thing clear: This is HIS team. This kind of access was unprecedented in years past, but it seems like the new staff is really making an effort to be open with fans, students, and media. He’s already made an impact on the program and I’m sure the new initiatives he’s putting in place (including a first annual Bone Marrow Drive next Wednesday in the UC Flamingo Ballrooms) will only continue. It’ll be interesting to see how this all translates once the season starts.

Note: The team is also auctioning off a chance for two fans to pick the rosters for the Green and Orange squads in April 16th’s Spring Game. Click here to check it out.
