Thursday's practice was outside in the blistering heat. It came a day after Fulmer talked about how bad Wednesday's practice was. Thursday was a different story.
“I thought it was a good day,” Fulmer said. “After watching the film, I might have been a little hard on them yesterday. They really did push through. Some of the youngsters we are trying to count on, they just truly don’t understand what it takes to play in the Southeastern Conference.”
Practice was focused around running the two minute drill, two pooint conversions, and the Vols short game. Tennessee gets today off before the scrimmage tomorrow.
“Everything that we’re doing at this time is geared towards the scrimmage on Saturday,” Fulmer said. “We’re giving the second and third groups good looks while trying to keep the first group going in the right direction.”
Fulmer feels the need to keep pushing the youngsters as many will be expected to contribute to the 2007 season. The Saturday scrimmage will give him a chance to see what he has in WR and on the line.
