"I think at times they have been pretty consistent," Rich Rodriguez said. "I don't think we have pressed the line of scrimmage as much as I like. We're not as strong upfront, but that group probably has much pride as anybody we have and that is good."
"We probably will seek one for Terrence when the season is over because he has not redshirted, so he is one we hope we can get," Rodriguez said. "We were hoping that he would get back for two or three games in the regular season, but that does not look like the case."
"We're going to get challenged both mentally and physically Saturday," he said. "Our mental and physical toughness will be challenged."
In order for Arizona to meet that challenge, Rodriguez believes that he needs to make the players as uncomfortable as possible.
"My whole talk to them today was that we have to learn to be uncomfortable and enjoy being uncomfortable," he said.
"There is probably more emotion in college football than there is in the NFL," Rodriguez said. "You would think it would be easy for guys to get up for just 12 or 13 Saturdays, but inevitably it isn't. Kids sometimes for whatever reason tend to let down."
