Gators close practice to public

Florida has elected not to have the first few days of fall football practice open to fans this season. Practice starts on Thursday.
The Gators had only two open practices last fall, on the first two days of camp, before closing practices the rest of the year.
Not allowing fans in practice is a growing trend in college football. Florida State, Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan and Oklahoma are among the programs not allowing fans to view any practices this year.
With various tools available for Internet use, fans are able to film and post practices on websites, causing a rising concern for coaches.
THORPE LIST: The Florida duo of safety Will Hill and cornerback Janoris Jenkins along with Miami cornerback Brandon Harris are among the 35 players named to the Jim Thorpe preseason watch list.
The award goes to the nation’s top defensive back. The winner will be named at the ESPN College Football Awards Show in December.
