News of the day, 10/9
DE Quentin Groves and ILB Tray Blackmon practiced today. Not at full speed. Not for the whole time. They were out there, though, and that has coach Tommy Tuberville optimistic that they can help against the Razorbacks this weekend.

Here is your weekly "Tuesdays with Tommy" featurette. The coach spends 30 minutes or so each Tuesday afternoon answering mostly inane questions from the media. I save you the time and provide a summary of the useful information, which is relayed exclusively in quote form.
*On the Vandy game: "The thing I liked the most is that we played together as a team. Everybody was pulling for each other."
*On Arkansas: "A couple of their players are as good as you'll see in college football."
*On Auburn's injured players at practice today: "Quentin Groves went about 50 percent. Same thing for Tray (Blackmon)."
*More on Groves and Blackmon's situation: "They went half speed 50 percent of the time."
*On the obvious: "We can't just depend on our defense."
*On 'team' in the philosphical sense: "YOu can only be as good as everybody is together. It's not just one guy."
*On injured C Jason Bosley: "He came out and walked around some. He's probably doubtful for Arkansas. Right now, he's struggling."
*On T King Dunlap: "His fire is burning a little bit hotter. We he injured his arm, the intensity wasn't there. He played much better early in the year."
*On how late games affect the team on Sunday: "We try to wake them up on Sundays. We have contact. It's a grind. Florida wasn't bad because it was the first one. Now we have two (road games) in a row."
*On Arkansas TB Darren McFadden: "He can outrun everybody we've got on our team. All he needs is a little daylight and then you'll be chasing him from behind as we did last year."
*On family members requesting tickets for the Arkansas game: "They think I grow tickets on trees."
