With the academics all in line, Coach Grobe's players have been able to focus their full attention on the football field. "Things are going well," Grobe said. "Our guys are real competitive. We've got real good enthusiasm and I think we've got better talent than any year since I've been here.
"We've got to get the young guys in a lot of situations," he continued. "That's what we're doing now, trying to do a lot of different down and distance situations, trying to get the guys comfortable with knowing where they are on the field and what has to get done."
