Bret Meyer: Everything is going pretty well. I finally got through with my tests, so I've been able to focus on football again. That's good.
CN: How has the added practice time benefited this offense?
Meyer: I think with this being a young offense, it's given us more time to play football and get used to playing together. It takes a lot for a young offense to mold together.
It's kind of like another spring practice, and obviously we're getting a lot more time to focus on what Miami does defensively.
CN: Will this offense be better when you take the field in Shreveport than what it was against Missouri?
Meyer: I think we will. It's safe to say we can be.
CN: What's been the most difficult thing to pick up in Miami's defense?
Meyer: They've got a lot of athletes. Their secondary, everybody is over 6-feet tall. They've got a linebacker that runs in the 4.4s. So you've got speed and a lot of good athletes. They're not going to make a lot of mistakes, so we can't make any either as an offense. We've got to be consistent.
CN: Do you expect a lot of pressure from the Redhawks on that side?
Meyer: People have been heating it up all year, because we've given up a lot of sacks. That probably won't be any different. But towards the end of the year we got a lot better, and we'll continue to get better.
