“It’s almost like for us, we feel like every weekend is a big weekend. We really do.”
Except we seem to play down to inferior competition and up to better competition so, that’s basically not true
“Hoping we can keep stepping forward and continue to improve.”
Not sure what you are exactly continuing to improve on. We just laid a goose egg. Some talk about dusting ourselves off and getting back on track would be a lot more encouraging that continuing to improve. Our continued improvement has looked like total shit so far this season.
“Going to be a blue collar game. We are going to have to match physicality and intensity.”
I think every game we play is a blue collar game, because we aren’t utilizing skill and athleticism on the offensive end. Junk yard brawl is as good as we are going to get.
“I think anybody can beat anybody, on any night.”
We know you do, and while a lot of coaches might spout this platitude in public, most of the successful ones would be absolutely ashamed to have their team endure the weekend your team just did.
