I am advised by U of L Assistant SID Rocco Gasparro that I passed along incorrect information in a previous post — “Time Out Early For U of L Pigskinners” — regarding U of L football practice days between the Indiana State and UK games.
Gasparro writes: “I read your column and your information is not accurate. We aren’t off for three days. The team will workout on that Friday. Then they will take Saturday and Sunday off. They are basically getting one day off more than usual. We always take Mondays off, but instead we are taking Sunday off and practicing Monday . . .
“Also when Bobby Petrino was here, we would follow pretty much the same schedule. So for you to make those assumptions is totally inaccurate.”
Apparently my source, someone within the program who has provided reliable information in the past, was mistaken in this case.
I apologize for the publication of this apparent misinformation.
