Video: See Memphis' renovated field

Back in April, the Memphis City Council approved $9 million in funding to renovate Memorial Stadium for the Tigers. The Tigers Sports Information Department released this video highlighting the new look.

The improvements look nice and include field turf, new lights and fresh paint, concessions areas, a press box, new sound system, and an impressive $2.5 million video board.

The Tigers break in the new look stadium Saturday against Tennessee-Martin at 6pm.

Kiffin describes his best off season move in 3 words

Reporters fired questions at Lane Kiffin after a 6am morning practice today, including one reporter who wanted to know what Lane would classify as the best thing he did this offseason.

After making sure he heard the question right, Kiffin responded with three simple words.

"Signed Silas Redd".

Petersen: "There's so many copycats out there"

Even with the recent success that Boise State has had on the field, and the work ethic that the assistant coaches have shown on the road recruiting, you don't see blue chip prospects lining up to play on the smurf turf.

And that's fine with Chris Petersen. Preseason rankings and recruiting rankings have never been real high on his list.

"Preseason rankings and recruiting rankings, both of those things have never been of any interest to us. If we think a kid is a good player then we'll try to recruit him if he has interest in us."  Petersen said.

"I think there are a lot of good players out there. I don't know what their rankings are but they're good players. And if they're good kids, we think we can develop them, and that's kind of what's happened around here."

What the coaching staff has done a great job of is developing the talent that they do bring in.

But with that, comes challenges as well, as Petersen explains.

"It's funny because it's gotten tougher on us. We'll recruit a kid that's got nobody recruiting him. But if that happens, two weeks later there's a ton of people recruiting him. There's just so many copycats that think you have the answers."

"We don't have the answers. I know this, though, our guys do homework."
