It's tough to win Division I football games and so whenever you get one it feels good, and this was no different. The win sure made the long bus trip home a more bearable and allowed us to open conference play in the right way. Coach Quinn had stressed earlier in the week about going out there and having fun and just playing football the way we know how to and the rest would take care of itself. We knew we had to win; it didn’t matter how we won or by how much but that we had to pull this win out. And we did, it wasn’t pretty at times, but we won and now prepare for our next challenge. We have a bye this week so extra time to correct the errors and get some people healthy and fit again before heading to Northern Illinois to take on the Huskies in a fortnight.
Monday we had our usual film review and whilst we played well in some aspects, other areas need major improvement. Tuesday we were given the day off allowing players to catch up on any school work and relax a little bit before getting back at it for “Working Wednesday”. The coaches are out recruiting for future Bulls, which means that only Coach Quinn, Inge and Forest will be conducting practice tomorrow and Thursday.
Special mention to Khalil Mack (#46) who was named the MAC-East Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts against Bowling Green.
Also thanks to the loyal fans that braved the weather and the heart stopping final few seconds to give the team much needed support on the road.
