"The Orange team talks a lot of trash and we're not going to say anything," said tailback James Davis, who is on the White team and who also said there were character problems on the other team. "(The White team) stayed on the field a little longer so we could go over a couple of things."
However, Orange quarterback Will Proctor believes Davis couldn't be more wrong. He said the Orange had "tricks up our sleeve," and that there was going to be a beat-down.
The reward for the winning team and the punishment for the losing team have not been determined yet. However, Tigers head coach Tommy Bowden said he could certainly sense the excitement with the players.
He went on to say that there's no comparison in the excitement level between this spring and last year at this time.
"It's not even close," Bowden said. "I think the fans will enjoy it, too."
One player not participating Saturday is senior wide receiver Chansi Stuckey, who broke his left hand in practice Wednesday.
The injury, which is where the ring finger meets the hand, occurred when he put his hand on the ground trying to gain his balance while making a spin move.
Senior cornerback Duane Coleman, who is being counted on to be the leader in the secondary despite having only played half the season their last year, said the spring went about as well as possible for him.
"I think I got better," he said. "That's what it's about this year – just working on fundamentals. I think my fundamentals got a little bit more sound and I got a little better."
Davis, who participated in his first spring session, said it couldn't have gone any better.
"I learned a lot and worked on my blocking technique," he said. "I loved (the two-back offense) because with C.J. (Spiller) coming in, I think it will help a lot of getting more backs on the field."
The same goes for Proctor, who was asked to describe his spring.
"Productive. Successful," he said. "I think everybody did real well to stay healthy. I think the offense got a lot of things done and I think the defense got a lot of things done. …
"I think I had my best spring yet. I felt good in all the scrimmages."
