Good win. It was a good win; I told the guys that. We didn't look pretty at times - but we won.
Press Conference Comments:
Watching the game film, the guys saw some things we have to do differently and improve on, but also we did some good things on Saturday.
-I told the players yesterday, they should be proud of what they did. Not too many teams could do what they did - on the comeback.
-This week we have San Jose State so I told the guys to strap it on and get after it this week.
-Practice went well yesterday. They worked hard as much as you could after the game, and they ran well after practice also.
-San Jose State is a team we just don't know much about. They did beat Michigan State last year. You have to be concerned when you don't know much about a team. The one thing I'm sure of is how athletic they are, so we are going to have to make improvements.
-Health-wise we're okay, just your normal bumps and bruises.
-I tell you what - our coaching staff did a good job this weekend. Those guys work hard, and they did a great job of making adjustments. We know what they were trying to do. Also, the players did a good job of making the adjustments as well.
