Kentucky's new team could start full-length practices two weeks earlier than normal if the NCAA adopts proposed legislation.
The potential new rule would move up the start date for 20-hour practice weeks, expanding the time between the first full-length practice and the first game from about four to about six weeks.
The next stop in the rule, according to Bylaw Blog, will be on May 2 at a Board of Directors meeting.
If the law passes, that means two more weeks for Kentucky's new and virtually brand-new team to start full-length practices (there are also 8-hour weeks allowed in the summer and individual workouts allowed in the fall).
It also might mean an earlier calendar date for Big Blue Madness, although the proposal will retain Friday as the first day for practices.
