After practice on Sunday, I was able to spend a few minutes talking with senior linebacker Maalik Bomar. He are some of his thoughts on the program and the upcoming season.
On being familiar with Butch Jones and his style of coaching. "The one thing about Coach Jones is he's very considerate, on the field and off. Most importantly, he puts his players first."
On the family environment Coach Jones is creating at UC."He harps on that a lot, to feel comfortable around one another. When you feel like you know somebody more, you want to play harder for that person."
On playing Virginia Tech in Washington D.C."We're very excited, but that's a few games down in the season and right now we're focused on Pitt. When that game comes up, we'll be prepared for it."
Prediction for the upcoming season."We wanna win them all. Nothing else needs to be said, we wanna win them all. All we can do is go out there and play hard and do what we do best. We have expectations here of winning, and we're gonna do it."
