Head coach John L. Smith spoke to the media and talked about Thursday’s practice.

"Perfect Thursday was more perfect," Coach Smith said. "It was a good day. We had a good week of practice. Today was much more perfect than it has been. I am proud of the way we practiced."

Coach Smith also commented on the team’s preparation for Auburn.

"We are prepared," Coach Smith said. "The coaches have done a great job of keeping these guys motivated. They went hard this week, and fast and energetic. Now it is a matter of playing that way."
