Auburn Football Practice Report
March 7, 2006
AUBURN, Ala. - After a day off Monday, the Auburn football team resumed spring practice Tuesday with a two-hour workout in full pads at the practice fields behind the Athletic Complex. After spending most of the Saturday's first spring scrimmage concentrating on the running game, Auburn worked much more on the passing game Tuesday.
"It was a good practice today," said head coach Tommy Tuberville. "We concentrated more on throwing the football. Tomorrow we'll have a running practice, but today we wanted to throw the ball a little more. There was good enthusiasm. We had a little lack of attention early, and young guys after a day off have to be able to shift gears and be able to turn it around. That's the reason you play spring ball."
Auburn opened with special teams work, concentrating on the punting game. The Tigers also conducted individual and team drills as well as having the first and second teams work against each other.
"Our kicking game is coming around," said Tuberville. I thought our punters were much better. We have a lot of guys that we're having to replace on our punt team so we're working overtime on that, making sure we have enough experience for the younger guys going into next season."
Auburn will continue spring practice with the eighth of its 15 spring workouts Wednesday at 3:15 p.m.
Auburn's annual spring football game, A-Day, will be held March 18 at 1 p.m. (CT) at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Due to current construction to the west and east concourses, approximately 10,000 tickets will be available for the game. Seating will be limited to the south stands.
