UCLA Closing Its "NFL Pro Day" on March 6 to Public & Media

UCLA is having its annual "NFL Pro Day" on March 6. This year the work out sessions will be closed to public. Jon Gold blogged about it on "Inside UCLA":

In order to create the best environment possible for our outgoing senior student-athletes, UCLA Pro Day will be closed to the public and media.

"Pro Day is a critical day for all football players looking to continue their careers in the pros," said UCLA Head Coach Jim Mora. "We want our players to be completely focused on the task at hand and able to work in an environment free of distractions." will feature exclusive videos and photos from the day.

UCLA begins Spring Practice on Monday, April 3 on Spaulding Field. Practices will be held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout April and the first week of May, and will culminate on May 5 with the Spring Scrimmage at the Rose Bowl.

In case you are interested, here is the full schedule of NFL Pro Days held in schools around country.

Gold shared the email-release from UCLA on his blog without making any big deal out of it. On the other hand the LA Times hack reporter Chris Foster threw a fit by publishing a snark laden report about UCLA pro players being "skittish" in public. I am not going to waste your time and give Foster any of our page views by linking to his BS. You can Google it if you are dying to read trash.

Still UCLA's move is a curious one. I wonder whether the call came from Mora or higher up. I don't see the upside in closing these workouts to reporters and restricting info release strictly from official outlets. But hey - there are bigger problems to work about with the cluster**** that is Chianti Dan's dysfunctional athletic department. So whatever.
