I haven't heard the audio from the press conference because the link at BGSUfalcons.com didn't work (typically, anything with the word "broadband" in it meets a poor fate at our site, though the radio feed worked flawlessly on Saturday night).
But, the chatter on azz.com was that coach was in and out in about 90 seconds. And he was mad.
People may not believe it, because Coach looks like a history professor and is generally amiable, but he is not somebody you would want to mess with. When pushed, he can give a very formidable demeanor with every cell in his body.
Ryan relays many of the same thoughts in The Blade.
But rarely is Brandon fuming, speaking so quickly and passionately that anyone within earshot should consider heading for cover. That was his reaction to BG’s 20-7 loss at Boise State on Saturday night. Brandon was cordial, even cracked a smile or two, but was mostly incredibly intense.
I think its clear that the halftime talk was pretty blistering....
"We just set our jaw at halftime and came out and played guts-out football in the second half. We just didn’t get it done.”And its clear the team responded.
As I said in my post-game post, this is in the team's hand. I think its clear we can play MAC Championship football. And, its just as clear that sometimes we don't. There are some offensive problems and some big injury concerns. But, we've got two weeks and one more tune-up before we hit the real season.
I don't mind that he gets pissed, frankly. In fact, most generally, Falcon fans have been frustrated when he was philosophical after losses. The team responded, and that matters.
Now, we need to figure out how to start fast and finish fast, play four quarters and get back to scoring points.
OH, and a prediction....Coach will be pretty close to the vest on the injuries, with the off week coming up. I don't expect a lot of updates.
