Officials Limit Student Press Reporting on College Football Practices, Player Injuries

School and team officials are increasingly ordering the student and professional press to refrain from reporting on college football player injuries via observations made or information obtained during team practices. As a respected adviser at an A-list student newspaper shared yesterday on a popular college media list-serv, “My sports editor just told me that our football beat reporter was approached at practice by the team’s sports info guy and ‘informed’ that the DTH was not to report on players’ injuries anymore. As in, we see a guy walking around in a cast, we can’t report that. If we do, the football coach will freeze the paper out of mid-week availability. Which is completely ludicrous, of course.” Ludicrous, but not unprecedented.
