Gamecocks Adjust Football Practice Schedule
March 16, 2009
The University of South Carolina football team will work out four times this week, head coach Steve Spurrier announced today.
Following a week off for the University's annual spring break, the Gamecocks will return to the Bluff Road practice fields on Tuesday, March 17, at 4 p.m. The time was moved up from the originally scheduled 7 p.m. practice due to the men's basketball NIT game versus Davidson at 7 p.m.
The Gamecocks have added a practice on Thursday, March 19, at 7 p.m. as a make up date for the March 3 practice date that was cancelled due to the unfavorable weather conditions.
The Gamecocks will also practice this week on Friday, March 20, at 3:45 p.m. and again on Saturday, March 21, at 10 a.m.
Next week, the Gamecocks have practices scheduled for Tuesday, March 24 at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 26 at 7 p.m. and Friday, March 27 at 3:45 p.m. There is no practice now scheduled for Saturday, March 28.
