Another tight game that came right down to the end. We still have a lot to do from a mindset standpoint. Whether it’s not getting excited and forgetting to finish, or getting upset when the opponent is doing well, or understanding the value of daily effort and focus needed to win. As a program we need to improve on respecting the officials and not blaming them when things are not going well. It starts with our coaches, but we need your support in talking with players about focusing on what they can control.
We are finally at home again this week...next three games actually. As a staff we cannot overemphasize the importance of practice and getting reps. Please help us keep our student-athletes healthy and reporting minor issues to the trainer so a preventive plan can get started rather than waiting until significant time is missed.
