Report: Spring practices to be open

The media will be able to attend practices for the first time in the Bo Pelini era according to a report.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Nebraska spring football practices start on Saturday and according to a published report on HuskerExtra.com, nearly all the sessions will be open to the media for the first time in the Bo Pelini era.

"Hopefully, we have a good enough rapport that they're going to have respect for what we're doing," Pelini told Steve Sipple of the LJS . "I'm trying to help you guys maybe do your jobs better."

Reporters will not be able to report what they see at practices, but it should allow the ability to generate better post-practice questions for Pelini.

During the Huskers' Outback Bowl prep, the seventh-year head coach shut down the media from talking to his assistant coaches. At this point, it seems like the rule will continue on.
