In a time filled with hype videos, one-handed catches, and big injury news, it is rare to see what an ordinary day of practice actually looks like. Without actually attending an open practice, which happens once or twice in the month of camp leading up to the season, fans don’t know what happens on the practice fields of their favorite teams, until now.
College Spun shared an awesome video that the Iowa Hawkeyes released which gives fans an in-depth look into the team’s training camp. This is a must-see for any college football fan, but certainly if you’re a Hawkeye fan.
While you are not actually at the practice and witnessing the intensity of the players and coaches on the field firsthand, this gives you a much better feel of what an ordinary practice is like. The open practices that teams usually hold for fans to come out and watch the practice in the team’s home stadium doesn’t usually give off a genuine vibe simply because the players know thousands of fans are watching their every move.
This is as close to a real practice as most fans are ever going to get. It was an awesome way to show fans what the players endure every day just to entertain them.
