Molnar sees an improved team from a year ago.
"(Last year felt) different because I knew we had a long ways to go," Molnar said. "I thought that maybe some of the guys from our football team would just step up and be able to carry the day. Once we got through the first game when I saw that wasn't going to be the case, I tempered my enthusiasm to understand where we're at as a football team developmentally and we were really on the ground floor.
"We've taken a step up. I can't tell you if we're on the second floor or the third floor yet. Let us play a couple of games. But we are definitely better than we were a year ago."
