Disappointment in Dekalb

Attention to detail is the key to winning Division I football games and despite solid preparation, we let our fans and ourselves down by our performance in Dekalb.  I will acknowledge the exceptional effort of our defense, which was constantly put in short fields and came up with stop after stop in the first half and even got us on the board thanks to a pick six by Gordon Dubois (99).

So after a long month away from UB Stadium the Bulls are looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd again.  From our perspective I think we have the best student section in the MAC and indeed the whole country.  The team is looking to pay them back with a spirited performance and a win on homecoming.

Monday was time to reflect on our mistakes and get them corrected, before we hit the field for a mental challenge.  We had to perform a number of cone drills perfectly (as in every member of the team) before we could move on to the next drill.  It was an exercise in the little details and being accountable to one another.

Intense Tuesday was a solid practice with more voice and zip in the team then has been evident over the last few weeks.

Go Bulls
