As for Monday's practice, Fulmer was pleased with the team's effort, but is still very disappointed with the loss. "We have been our own worst enemy. This team has a lot of fight, a lot of character to it and certainly now is the time for these guys to step up." Fulmer's best comment of the night was this, "Tough times don't last, but tough people do." I sure hope he is correct.
Gibril Wilson didn't wear shoulder pads on Monday. It is unclear what his injury is, but I was told he should not miss any game action.
Casey Clausen practiced today also. Clausen was throwing and didn't seem to have any ill effects from the game. He actually looked more comfortable passing than he did last week.
Coach Fulmer's daughter Brittany had knee surgery on Monday. Coach said she is resting and should be fine. Keep her and the family in your prayers.
The Vols will practice Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before heading to Columbia on Friday.
