Want to Read About Spring Practice?

In case you’ve missed it, there won’t be a Spring Game at Ball State this year, as the coaching staff has instead decided to just have another day of practice or a light scrimmage. No clock, no score, nothing like that. It will be open to the public, so they have that going for them, which is nice. Want to follow along and read all about the practice? Then you should visit the Daily News and follow what they have to say. Here’s the “release” that OTP got from Ted Cahill, the lead beat reporter for the DN should you be looking for something to do on Saturday morning:

The Ball State Daily News invites you to join sports editor and football beat writer Teddy Cahill for a live chat at 11 a.m. Saturday from the Ball State football Spring Game.

Cahill is entering his second year of covering the Cardinals for the Daily News and looks forward to answering questions from fans Saturday morning.

Ball State is coming off a disappointing 2-10 season, but with most of a young nucleus back intact, has high hopes for the 2010 campaign. The biggest questions so far during Spring Practice have been the ongoing quarterback competition and how coach Stan Parrish will divide carries among the returning trio of running backs MiQuale Lewis, Cory Sykes and Eric Williams and redshirt freshman David Brown.

For those unable to make the live chat, feel free to e-mail questions to sports@bsudailynews.com, post them as comments on Cahill’s Scoop and Score blog on bsudailynews.com or tweet them to tedcahill.

Cahill hopes to answer as many questions as possible during Saturday’s Spring Game.

So there you have it. Need to know what color the cups are or how many people showed up to watch a practice, and Teddy’s your man.

I will not turn this piece into an evaluation of the current Daily News or how they and their staff treat OTP, that column is for the future, if ever. So I shall leave it at the above release and wish you all a happy spring practice. Go Cards!
