Head Coach Scottie Montgomery spoke with the media following Wednesday's practice

Greenville N.C. -- ECU head coach Scottie Montgomery talked about the loss to Virginia Tech and the mindset of the team moving forward

It is no secret that the loss to Virginia Tech last weekend has shook coach Montgomery and his Pirates.

However, Coach Montgomery and his team are gearing up and using the loss and fuel for the fire.

"Another day of physicality," said Montgomery. "We picked it up. We know what we have to do."

The Pirates are excited to be playing on their home turf again.

"I may kiss the ground," said coach Montgomery. "I miss home, I miss home sweet home. We want to feel that momentum that comes from the crowd."

Headed forward, Montgomery said they want to hit, strike, tackle hard and carry out their one-on-one battles against UCF.
