Babers Presser

Coach did his presser Monday.  Nothing very newsworthy, but a couple things worth thinking about.

First, he says that his team is banged up. I was a little surprised to hear that because the team is definitely healthier than last year.  Anyway, he says goal #1 is getting the team healthier.

Second, he had good things to say about UMass, who easily could have beaten BG last year.  Frohnapfel is definitely a good QB and Sharpe is an outstanding WR.  He says they are much improved on defense and this is a veteran team.

Third, he talked a lot about losing at home, which he does not like to do.  At all.  It is interesting (me talking now) because usually the home thing is a bigger deal in basketball than it is in football.  Anyway, he says the home losses will bug him for a long time.  The team is only allowed to think about it for 24 hours, but Coach says he holds onto them for a lot longer.  He then said it was ok because "he wouldn't be here much longer" by which he meant alive, not at BG.
