Bobo opens practice to students Tuesday

Ever wanted to see what a Colorado State football practice looks like firsthand? Now you can.


Head coach Mike Bobo announced his plans to make Tuesday’s practice open to all CSU students at a pep rally for CSU freshmen. The gates of the on-campus practice facility will be open from 4:30-5:30 p.m., or whenever practice comes to close.

Students must present their student ID to gain admittance. Those who attend will also receive a CSU football bracelet.

In addition to watching practice, the students will also be able to meet Bobo and hear from some players on the team.

Mike Bobo Coaches’ Show set to debut Sept. 2

The first Mike Bobo Coaches’ Show will make its debut Sept. 2 on FM 105.5 ESPN (KJAC).

The weekly one-hour radio show makes the move to Wednesday and to a 7 p.m. time slot this year for Bobo’s debut season. The show will run at the same time every week, except for the bye week (Oct. 21), when there will be no show, and during the season’s final week, when the show will instead air at 7 p.m. Nov. 28.

The show will again be hosted by Gary Miller, the play-by-play announcer for Rams football and men’s basketball. Fans are welcome to join Bobo at C.B. & Potts to watch every show live, and can call in at 1-877-826-ESPN (3776) to ask the first-year coach a question.
