"I'm excited about spring practice starting tomorrow. I know we're starting a bit later than a lot, but that's for a couple of reasons. We felt like we needed to get physically stronger in the weight room, and Coach (Ryan) Russell has assured me we have. I really felt like we needed to get mentally tougher, and we've worked hard with these 6 a.m. workouts, really strained our guys and we feel like we have a good foundation going into spring practice."Our spring goals are pretty simple. Number one, I told our players today we've got to get our edge back. That's physically and mentally tougher, and we're going to be very physical during spring practice. We're going to have the pads on, and we're going to be getting after it with the basic fundamentals of football. We're going to stress discipline on the field, and that's a big part of what we're doing."Number two is player understanding of our base offense and defense; I think that's very critical. We want our guys when they leave spring to have a very good understanding of the responsibilities of our base offense and defense -- the reason being this summer, we want them to build upon things and not develop bad habits.
