Angst in Memphis; spring football begins

Go ahead and put the city of Memphis on suicide alert, with John Calipari and Kentucky apparently courting.

Piecing together a spring preview for Tuesday a.m., Coach Snyder tells me a few position changes, etc., including:
— Landis Provancha is sitting out the spring to heal his shoulder. That one hurts, because he was in a good battle for a guard spot.
— Cory Hart will be limited this spring, also with a shoulder injury. Look for him in 7-on-7 and drills like that, but he won’t bang around.
— Devin Arrington begins the spring at strong safety, but the idea is to move him to strong-side linebacker behind Brandon Burns. But first, John Saunders must crank up his game.
— Center John Bruhin tweaked his ankle, and will attempt to return Thursday. He needs a big spring, and the Herd needs him to have a big spring.

More in the a.m., as I said… Practices will be open to the public (no spies, please) on Thursday and Saturday morning.
