Our team is going to have a long, long week of practice. Winning cures a lot of mistakes that are made on game day, but when you lose, it magnifies them by 500%.
When I played, if we won, coaches were a bit more relaxed during practice week, but man, when we lost, the coaches were like drill sargents with a hair across their *****. Tough weeks of practice when you lost...that alone will make you win sometimes...

As big and bad as UNH looks coming in, it is a great opportunity for redemption for our guys.
