Having recently passed the midway point of spring camp, the University of Memphis Tigers began the third week of drills on Tuesday.
"We are getting into the grind part of it now," said Memphis football coach Justin Fuente following the ninth of 15 practices during spring camp. "I want to see some toughness. I want to see some guys push through the aches and pains that they are going through because everybody's got them.
"We have to come out here and continue to get better," he said. "We have to become a smarter football team. Not just being physical and being tough. We have to play smart and elminiate mistakes."
Memphis will workout on Thursday and Saturday of this week. The Tigers' spring game is slated for April 6 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.
