Tigers Begin Final Full Week of Spring Game
April 2, 2013
Well into the first period of Tuesday's practice, Memphis head coach Justin Fuente called the team together and after a short meeting started the practice again from the beginning. So began the Tigers' final full week of spring practices.
"We have had some good days of practice but I don't think today was one of them," Fuente said. "We didn't have a lot of enthusiasm and passion to go get better. That is what happens when you have a young team. They have a couple good days then they fall off. They don't understand what it is like to hold the rope for 15 straight practices.
"It is on us coaches too. We have to get them rolling and get them ready to practice better."
Memphis will practice again on Thursday before holding its annual Spring Game Saturday at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Kickoff for Saturday's game is 12 noon but activities on Tiger Lane will begin at 10 a.m.
