VM: What are your thoughts now after the first several practices of the spring?
MT: I feel like the tempo is a lot faster and everything is moving a lot better. It's going real good
VM: I hear that they haven't decided yet whether you are going to be a tailback or fullback. What do you prefer?
MT: I really don't know. I just want to be on the field. I don't care where I am at.
VM: It's whatever is best for the team, huh?
VM: What do you tell a Vanderbilt fan that has been rooting for you guys for years and is asking himself "how do I keep going?", what do you tell that person?
MT: We got a new coach and new start. The coaches are fired up. We are all fired up and we feel like we are going to win this year.
VM: How are you guys doing in the weight room?
MT: We're getting a lot stronger. The new strength coach is really pushing us. It's a lot harder than it's ever been. More intensity. I think we are going to be a lot stronger than any other team in the SEC.
