Cody Fajardo, Kyle Roberts and Lenny Jones talked about how they could become mentally stronger and not use not being able to practice outside as an excuse.
“Our team has a lot of senior leadership and we're able to stay focused and take care of everything we need to in practice,” Roberts said.
As far as the game plan against San Jose State this weekend, running the ball will be key according to coach Polian.
It’s really difficult to figure out San Jose State because they have faced two tough opponents and going through a quarterback change doesn’t help.
Jones believes the Spartans will have a tough time containing their pass rush.
“I think our D-Line is one of the best in the country,”
“I think our D-Line is one of the best in the country,” a confident Jones said.
Polian also talked about the possibility of meeting Colin Kaepernick for the first time and having a chat with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.
There is a possibility Kaepernick gives his Alma mater a visit before Nevada takes the field against San Jose State.
And many of the Pack will have family and friends watching since a vast majority are from California.
“San Jose State offered me my first ever division 1 scholarship and I’m thankful for that,” Fajardo said.
I believe it would be a huge confidence boost for the Wolf Pack beating a solid team on the road. Starting off 1-0 in conference play is a must for Nevada.
