Today was a good day. We passed that non-conference test.
In the first half we did a lot of things that were uncharacteristic of us. It was a very emotional game, and at the half, I just tried to bring everyone in check. We wanted that emotional excitement, but not to the degree that it was.
Today was a good day. I was happy with our offense, defense and special teams. It was our most complete game of the season.
As a coach, you always worry about the distractions of the week and keeping your feet on the ground.
That will be a distant memory.
Tyler is a story of perseverance. He came in as a walk-on, and even then we weren't sure if we had enough room for him to be here. But he had that desire to be on the team. And my philosophy is if a player really wants to be here, we'll give him a shot. He's been patient enough to pay his dues.
It isn't a big surprise. I think it was kind of anticipated that this would happen.
