The team spent five days with the staff and then the last few days were all about football. Lots of noise and great energy. Just 31 days until they play and a lot of work now and then. The opening match cannot be won until you enter camp. This team has the right approach and the right mindset.

*This is his 33rd year in college and 14th as a head coach and he’s never too old to be loved and loved at this time of year. He thinks this team is ahead and knows what it takes to win. They have all the ingredients to be a good team. Liked the place of this group.

Some of you won’t be as good in a 360, but it’s skinny. And this whole bunch – maybe as big and strong as we were across the board. We have to see who runs out there first.”

* said ra John Williams He’s also persevered and ready to go, and he’s a very versatile player.
