Unlike during the Tommy Tuberville era, the Tigers now practice on “lush manicured lawns. And get this -- sometimes they retreat to the inside and the air conditioning when it's not even raining.”
AL.com writer Evan Woodbury believes moving August camp away from the intramural fields has reduced the number sprained ankles and bruised knees that Tigers players often suffered in the past.
Gene Chizik says, "The indoor facility is incredible. It gives us so much flexibility in so many ways. I really like how it's designed...We're going to get a lot of use out of it."
This morning, Auburn was back on the lush manicured lawns.
