Very cool idea: Miami Hurricanes will open first five bowl practices to public. Will you be there?

(PLEASE NOTE THAT UM HAS CHANGED THIS SUNDAY'S PRACTICE TO 11 A.M. UNTIL 12:45 P.M. (ORIGINALLY WAS FROM 3 TO 5 P.M.)

It has been a very long time since Miami has opened a string of practices to the public, so it's great to see that the Canes will open their first five bowl practices, beginning this weekend and continuing next weekend.

What do you think? Will you make it to any of the practices? Bring your kids (or parents) or grandkids?

You can bet there will be no secrets unveiled during those practices, but what a great way to bring fans into their world during a festive time of year.

Here's the release:

 CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes football team will open its first five bowl practices to the public. Miami (9-3, 5-3 ACC) will begin bowl preparations this weekend as the Hurricanes gear up for its first bowl game since 2010.
