Scenes from Thursday's practice as the Tigers had the most physical workout to date this fall.

Sophomore tailback Tre Smith catches a pass during Thursday's practice.

Tight end Anthony Mix blocks defensive end Jay Ratliff while Coach Hugh Nall looks on. This drill is designed to see which play gets off the ball the quickest and drives their legs the best.

In the same drill Spencer Johnson and Monreko Crittenden had an epic battle. Here Johnson gets the best of his teammate by driving him backwards.

In his first day at linebacker, Quentin Groves did pretty well calling the defenses and getting lined up right. Here he gets help from Coach James Willis before the ball is snapped.

Crittenden in the middle of the action again. Here he teams with center Danny Lindsey to block noseguard Demarco McNeil.

Wide receiver Devin Aromashodu works on his blocking in Thursday's practice. Here freshman Bruce Edwards catches the brunt of Aromashodu's strength as he shoots his hands to keep the defensive back at bay.
